    It isn't even confirmed that Giamatti has joined the cast, nor has it been confirmed he's playing Rhino.

    @ejk1 -- Kind of an odd reason to be called a douche, but I guess.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Read it once, then read it again. I don't think it had as much to do with the age thing as it did with the fact that you were negative on a popular film.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Perhaps it's in presentation. Or perhaps no one likes you :P

    @ejk1 -- Funny how you garner no heat when you complain about the problem with the casting based on the inaccurate age, but when I noted the same thing about "Easy A", no one agreed with me.

    Odd.

    @felipe-11 I honestly don't remember it. I've seen the film once. I may have reviewed it afterwards, though. I'll look later.

    @ejk1 Could be worse, did you see the opening high-school scene in Tokyo Drift?

    @felipe-11 He better be, because he doesn't look like a high schooler.

    @ejk1 Isn't he playing a college freshman in the new one? Either way I don't really mind, I'm too used to 25-year-olds playing high-school students since forever, and Andrew still looks younger than 27 to me.

    @felipe-11 I would agree, except that they plan on keeping Parker in high school, which makes Garfield's hiring look increasingly weird. It would have been better to pick a younger actor, and let him grow into the role.

    @bawnian-dexeus I wouldn't be surprised because I know there are. In fact I think even Lerman is a fine actor. I'm just saying casting a role isn't just a matter of finding an actor the same age as his character.

    @ChiRep-1@monkeyiron2-0@ROFLitschristian Just because Paul Giamatti WOULD LIKE TO PLAY the Rhino doesn't mean anyone will listen to him...

    @ejk1 I'll take a better actor over casting someone else just because he's younger...

    Does seem a bit quick, but just because it's was written fast doesn't mean it's already a piece of sh*t. Using villains like Rhino and Electro make it a piece of sh*t.

    Can't wait, as long as The Rhino is just used during an opening montage and the action steps it up a bit, this movie has a chance to be the best yet! (Don't argue with me I'm sticking to this rational)
