Jason Momoa as Conan The Barbarian?
The Mob may be a little behind on the works of the new Conan film being released, but yes, yet ANOTHER remake is in our midst and this time they have been searching for a new Conan. How is it possible to replace Schwarzenegger in one of his most notorious roles? And why would you? The first can be answered, but I doubt the second will have any responses other than stumbling tongues. I’m feeling very MEH about the sequel-athon and remake glory of Hollywood. It’s not that some don’t turn out well, it’s just turning into a rotten cesspool of copycats and lack of originality. I’m a supporter of taking an influence of someone or something else and going with it, but still making it yours. Doing a remake or sequel does often does not incite that kind of creativity and because of that crutch, 93% turn out lukewarm to shitty.
So….tangents aside (I was up late and have not received coffee yet-I’m not responsible for my grumpy attitude-nor run-on sentences.), does this Conan excite anyone? Jason Momoa, also known to some of us *wink* as Ronon Dex on Stargate Atlantis has been cast. As far as physicality and other superficial attributes go, to me, he strikes me as very good candidate to pick up the role. Also, I appreciate the idea of giving a lesser known actor the role. On Atlantis, Ronon was a true highlight for the show. There was some insanely credible martial arts and fight scenes he took part in, and beyond that, he has a surprising sense of charm and charisma. How far his acting range goes is unknown to me, only having notable roles on Baywatch (Bleh), Atlantis, and North Shores. But it is possible he could actually pull this off. Also interesting that they are trying to cast Mickey Rourke as his Daddy. What do you think of all this?
