BOOOOOOO YAAAAAAA-HA-HAAAAAAAAH!

No no I did see it. The "yep" follows the waterfall.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2016 - 11:19 PM)

BlackMax.. You've never seen Emperor's New Groove? Stop whatever your doing and go watch it.. And while not nearly as good.. Watch Krunk's new groove as well!

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 11:00 PM)

Yep.

@  ShadowMan024 : (06 December 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Don't tell me. We're about to go over a huge waterfall.

Load them into cannons, load the cannons into bigger cannons, launch the cannons into orbit, then launch them back down into the Marianas Trench.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (06 December 2016 - 06:12 PM)

Load them both into cannons and fire them into orbit.

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 05:19 PM)

We'll load Trump into the cannon and shoot ~him at~ Bieber. Problem solved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 04:08 PM)

Oh yeah, like I had enough left over for a safety net after buying the cannon. I work retail here!

@  Telly : (06 December 2016 - 03:12 PM)

so long as theres a safety net i can land in sure!

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 03:09 PM)

Hey man, I didn't get this comically large cannon to NOT shoot somebody out ot it. So unless you're volunteering to take his place.....

@  Telly : (06 December 2016 - 03:02 PM)

cant we just shoot him, full stop??

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 03:01 PM)

Can't we just like, shoot him out of a comically large cannon or something?

@  Paladin : (06 December 2016 - 02:59 PM)

first you agree to throw Justin Bieber out into the cold & let him freeze to death...

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 02:14 PM)

Say, give us all the Tim Horton's and about 700 kilos of Coffee Crisps and we'll take all the cold. How about it?

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 02:13 PM)

Well hey, let's not be hasty. Canada and the US are allies, we're all friends here on this board, maybe we can negotiate.

..............I ~might~ want all the cold.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (05 December 2016 - 06:17 PM)

Trust me, you're not getting ALL the cold. You don't want ALL the cold.

@  BlackMax : (05 December 2016 - 06:04 PM)

You guys in Canada have nice weather! I know it! You keep sending all the cold down here to Ohio to dump snow on us.

@  Bass X0 : (04 December 2016 - 04:19 PM)

Bicycles? That's old school. Riding a Tauros is the thing to do these days.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 03:15 PM)

On a warm and sunny day, I could reach several dozen stores by bike.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 03:14 PM)

Lots of small, medium-sized and large cities within a short travelling distance of each other, and decent infrastructure.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 03:14 PM)

I guess that's the advantage of living in a decentralized major urban region.

Characters you just can't trust due to the actor that plays them

I'm starting to watch Torchwood Miracle day. And they eventually introduce a guy played by Wayne Knight aka Newman of Seinfeild. I keep thinking to myself "Its Newman! How the hell can you trust Newman?" Becuase every role I see the guy play he's Newman, the fat untrustable douche that screws everyone over in the end.

It also reminds me of a comment from the new Thundercats "Even if you never seen the old show, you know Grune's gonna be a bad guy becuase he's voiced by Clancy Brown."

So are there any series or movies you've watched where the actor choice kinda spoils things becuase they almost always same play the same character or casted in a villain role? Likely more concerns villains or supposed-to-be neutral parties, rather then heroes.

Clancy Brown in "Cowboys & Aliens" was hard to process as a total good guy.

The bad guy military leader from "Avatar" plays almost exactly the same guy in "Terra Nova". I'm hoping that's a fake-out.

In hindsight, it's a lot harder to trust Luke Skywalker or Skips the Yeti from Regular Show since Mark Hamill's mostly done villain roles like the Joker, Fire Lord Ozai and Skeleton King.

On the flipside, it's hard for me to take Knockout seriously because, well...

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

I was the one who made the Clancy Brown comment, I think icon-hotrod.gif

He has played good guys. In live action he played a "good father" character on Earth 2.

But there is some type casting to be sure.

Wayne Knight is a great example.

I'll see if I can think of any.

Clancy has played good guys, but tends to be more famous for his villains or at least seems to be. Its why I added "or always seems to be casted in a villains role"

Well, I can forgive a lot of these guys listed thus far:
Clancey Brown: Danzigger on Earth 2, likable guy
Michael Ironside: Racjak on Starship Troopers and the 3rd commander of the Seaquest
Jeremy Irons: harder, but at least he was decent as Tiberius in Kingdom of Heaven

But that said, yea, all are villain bait.

I'll add Willem DaFoe and Robert Patrick to the list.

Don't forget, he also screwed everything up for everyone in Jurassic Park.

EDIT: Of course, this thread also needs the "Villains you can't take seriously as a threat because of the actor who plays them" side of the discussion, for when an actor whose past roles preclude him as a viable threat as a villain. Topher Grace as Venom, anyone?

Oh I remember, that falls under "screws everyone over in the end" Any time something bad happens, and he's been around; there's a good chance he's the reason it went bad.

Yeah, rewatching Robocop after watching that 70's Show gives a new spin on his character there. I wish "That 80's show" had been a continuation, just becuase I would have loved to see a scene of them watching Robocop. "Dude, your dad just killed a cop!"

Jack Nicholson.

Great actor, but he's only capable of playing one character. And that character is "Jack Nicholson".

And he's usually a crazy lunatic.
