Do you think that if he hadn't starred in "Beetlejuice," he would have been taken more seriously as Batman?

Interesting. I liked Michael Keaton as Batman. I remember thinking, at the time, that Batman's true identity has to be someone you wouldn't expect.

Cher in Moonstruck - I like Cher and she did a good job acting in this role, however, I just felt she didn't really quite fit the role. I think Marisa Tomei would have been a better choice.

No way. Michael Keaton was the best Batman. He and Kim Bassinger had great chemistry.

I have a hard time seeing anyone other than Adam West as Batman.

Antonio Banderas makes a good vampire, but when you think that Armand was a redhead and made a vampire at age 15 or 16, casting Banderas in that role in Interview With the Vampire doesn't seem like a good decision. But I guess that enough women loved the scene where he nearly kisses Brad Pitt to make the error worth it.

Keira Knightly as Guinevere in King Arthur was an awful choice, too.

Dylan McDermott as Leander McNelly in Texas Rangers.

Matthew Broderick as the male lead in Godzilla. Maria Petillo as the lead actress in Godzilla. (1998 one)

Matthew Broderick as the male lead in The Stepford Wives remake.

Jude Law as a leading man in anything. He's a good actor and I like him in a lot of movies but a romantic leading man he is not.

Matt Damon in any role that requires him to be even remotely romantic.

Uma Thurman in anything.

Julianne Moore in anything.

Both Scarlett Johansson and Ewan McGregor in The Island.

Leelee Sobieski as Joan of Arc in 1999. She couldn't look any less like a 15th century martyr. More like a suburban chick with always perfect hair.
