      Taylor is out for good. He was actually never a choice, just a rumor.

            I thought the whole point of these movies was to have an all star cast of action actors from the 80's & 90's? Who the feck is this twat? Not impressed!! x

                  That will attract younger audience. Good thinking!

                    @bawnian-dexeus You raise an extraordinary point. At least Liam is fun to watch on screen. "I need a horse!"

                      I am ok with Hemsworth but this movie is getting polluted with actors. I love action films but if you get to know each character you care more about if they survive. Too many actors and you end up with expensive window dressing.

                        @moviefreak97 agreed. i dont think its fare to judge him based off of that miley cyrus movie

                          Just be happy it aint Lautner. Besides, Chris Hemsworth is a great actor so maybe some of his acting chops rubbed off onto Liam. I have never seen him act so I can't judge him but I have a feeling that he might be good.

                            @pjwolsker@bawnian-dexeus Yep, better him than Lautner. I'll judge Hemsworth after I see The Hunger Games. If he's anything like his brother, it should be good.

                                SOME ARE REALLY EXPENDABLE- Meh, Van Damme and Norris couldn't give this franchise justice, I think. Neither could Wahlberg or Lautner. I think that Liam Hemsworth will be a great addition or a few other actors. What happened to Christopher Lambert? I wanted to see him in this! Some characters work and others are expendable!

                                  @seawolf63 michael biehn said no cause Stallone basically said in an interview that biehn doesnt have a career anymore and he wants to give him a chance.. biehn was basically insulted by that so he said no

                                    @bawnian-dexeus Agreed... with a slight sigh of relief... now they need to get Kurt Russel and Micheal Biehn on board.
