Sudeikis' Bounty

06.17.2009

When I heard that Jason Sudeikis was joining Jennifer Aniston in a film, I thought to myself how refreshing it was that a studio would cast the talented but relatively unknown actor opposite a mega-star, instead of an obvious choice like, oh I don't know, a Gerard Butler let's say. Then I found out that Sudeikis--he of SNL and "30 Rock" fame--is only playing Aniston's friend in the film. It's Gerard Butler who's the leading man. Go Figure.

The film is called BOUNTY HUNTER and features Gerard Butler in the title role, as he searches for his ex-wife who has skipped out on bail, played by Aniston. Andy Tennant--director of FOOL'S GOLD--takes the reigns on this one, telling us exactly what kind of film this will be. Let's hope Jason Sudeikis starts getting some lead roles--in rom coms at least--sometime soon.

ABsolutely Sudeikis needs to be bigger. So long as he returns for his Joe Biden schtik. He's like Will Ferrell as Dubya, not exactly a look-alike but great at capturing the essence of the character.

Gerard Butler maybe needs to find more dramatic work, but I remember seeing an interview at Comic Con when he talked about how he needs to balance every action movie he does with something not testosterone-based.

Butler should be done with rom-coms by now. And nice list luke319.
Bradley Cooper's been the guy I think deserves bigger roles and with the Hangover he's def. going to be getting them now.

To answer the talkback here are my Top 10.

1. Ben Foster
2. Olivia Thirlby
3. Sam Rockwell
4. Cillian Murphy
5. Emily Browning
6. Peter Sarsgaard
7. Gael Garcia Bernal
8. Casey Affleck
9. Clemence Poesy
10. Jena Malone

If you had asked me a year ago Joseph Gordon Levitt and Alison Lohman would have been at the top, but they finally seem set to get their due. Hopefully the others will be so lucky.
