Re: Branagh cast and miscast (was Re: [mythsoc] The Two Towers)

> anyway who is the Snape guy?The absolutely WONDERFUL comic actor Alan Rickman, who also did brilliant
work in GalaxyQuest and in Dogma. He's one of the best things about all
three films (and, IMHO, one of the *only* good things about the HP movies).

- But _perfect_ as a vain, boastful, and utterly incompetent wizard in _Harry
Potter and the Chamber of Secrets_, of course :] I loved his small role;
they couldn't have gotten anyone better, anyone that better conveyed that
aura of youthful pride and glamour faded by age and easy living. >>
The boys saw that one w/o me. Now I will have to watch for this bit of
perfect casting when I see is, as I know we'll get the tape eventually.
(The bits I saw of Two Towers do make me want to see it just for the
casting bits ditto. I like Theoden's look.) Meanwhile, I do like that guy
they got to play Snape in the first movie, anyway. Brrrr he gives me the
curiouses, although he's not as hot as that flying ant in ANTZ. I'm sure
the actor is nothing like the character he is playing, and I didn't like
his version of Snape initially (not slimy, just as Hermione is not frizzy,
but the Brits with their soft water know little of real frizzies w/o help
from destructive hair products, which Hermione is too young and granola to
use)... anyway who is the Snape guy?
