Scanner Cast Fills Out, from scifi.com

Winona Ryder, Robert Downey Jr., Woody Harrelson and Rory Cochran will join Keanu Reeves in A Scanner Darkly, the Warner Independent Pictures movie based on a Philip K. Dick novel, Variety reported. Richard Linklater will direct and wrote the adaptation.



Okay, Robert Downey Jr. is a good choice.

NONIE FUCKING HOROWITZ. Keanu fucking Reeves.
  • i know, i know... i'm so sick of them trashing good books! and i'm REALLY fucking sick of keanu; the only role he's ever been good at was bill and ted's; everything else has been shit and now he's getting type casted as "the one" all the time!
    • He did a shallow rent boy pretty well in My Own Private Idaho.
  • well, on the bright side, it's good to know that winona is working again. for a while, she couldn't get cast because she was labeled an insurance liability. so, yay.

    and at the risk of getting flamed, is it possible for keanu to become a better actor? is there hope? perhaps linklater might squeeze a good performance out of him. i trust his choices as a director. i've never seen him get a Bad performance out of anybody. in fact, he's gotten good performances from complete amateurs.


    • Linklater gets good acting out of people in general, or so it seems. I don't know about Keanu Reeves. He tends to fuck up when he has to really emote, and how is he going to do all that split personality, "fred" narcing on Bob Arctor stuff?


      I think Winona Ryder is physically a good fit - she's the traditional "dark haired girl" that PKD always obsessed over.

      Woody Harrelson will likely be terrible but fitting. He'll probably be very Natural Born Killers.

      Downey Jr. will likely kick some ass.
  • Adam Sandler IS...

    Palmer Eldritch!

    "It's, ah, not CAN-D. Tee-hee!"
    • Ow, my eyes! my eyes!

      Now you'll have me waiting for the next Mel Gibson epic: VALIS, starring Jim Carvaziel as Horselover Fat
  • Keanu was also okay in The Gift, but this one doesn't seem likely to follow in that film's footsteps. Another thing that irks me about this is the Waking Life animation that Linklater's using. *sighs*
