My Top 5 BEST Casting Choices of All Time!
1. Alan Rickman ("Harry Potter" Films and "Die Hard") - Why wasn't this extraordinary man ever nominated for an Oscar for his perfect portrayal of Professor Severus Snape in any one of the "Harry Potter" films? I personally find this to be the best casting choice of all time because Alan Rickman not only stole every second of screen-time he had throughout each "Harry Potter" film, but he also had the looks, the stern voice, and such amazing timing for each of his line deliveries altogether that he therefore made Snape into one of the most involving film characters ever created on screen! From the very moment that we get introduced to him in the first "Harry Potter" movie, we immediately get a suspicious, curious, and unsettling feeling about his character, and he pulled everything off so well ever since then! It truly saddened me to death when I had first heard about Alan's passing last year, because he was one of the most talented actors we've ever had working in Hollywood today! R.I.P. to the one and only Professor Severus Snape!
2. Willem Dafoe (Original "Spider-Man" Trilogy) - Many people won't stop praising Heath Ledger's Joker villain portrayal in "The Dark Knight," yet not a lot of people have also given as much recognition to Willem Dafoe's amazingly menacing portrayal of the Green Goblin in Sam Raimi's original 1st "Spider-Man" film. If this guy was never casted in this movie at all, then we would never have gotten such a purely compelling villain with an insanely evil vendetta on killing many innocent civilians. Plus, this original "Spider-Man" film would've BOMBED if it really wasn't for him, and we would never have gotten so many superhero movies today (think about that). Willem Dafoe can play 2 different personalities in the same room within SECONDS and I wouldn't even tell the difference at ALL, because he has such a strong passion for committing into roles like this, and that's what makes him great, especially within his facial expressions! Willem as the Green Goblin is one of the best casting choices of all time, and I cannot picture anyone else playing this character besides him! ⬇️
