Best Cast Ever?

I caught a bit of Open Water 2: Adrift the other day and whilst it was quite interesting couldn’t be bothered to watch all of it. I did, however, want to know what happens. So in true lazy research style I looked it up on wikipedia. Unfortunately I couldn’t remember the correct name of the film (although I knew it wasn’t Deep Blue Sea!) so remembering that the guy from those IBM ads (Richard Speight Jnr) was in it I went to IMDB. Speight Jnr was also in Band of Brothers the tv serial, so I looked him up under that (I couldn’t remember his name). Whilst doing so I noticed that Michael Fassbender was in Band of Brothers. For those not in the know Fassbender is considered by some to the next big thing in British acting, he’s already gained alot of plaudits as an IRA terrorist on hunger strike in “Hunger” and we’ll all know him after his role in Taratino’s upcoming “Inglourious Basterds” (spelling mistakes are deliberate). I’d be amazed if there was ever a show that had so many stars before they were famous and it seems that there are those that are only just starting to make a name for themselves.

  1. Michael Fassbender was also very good in “Eden Lake” and is in the upcoming film “Centurion” by Neil “The Descent” Marshall.

    I’ve still never seen Band of Brothers but it is renowned for is cameos and up-and-coming cast.

  2. OMG! I’ve just recoved from fainting in shock. I will have to lend you the box set. It is a travesty that you haven’t seen it yet. I’ve watched the whole thing at least three times. Sam said about the Wire Season 1 being the best thing he’s ever seen, but as a stand alone tv programme, I think Band of Brothers takes some beating.

  3. I’ve never seen an episode of The Wire either. In fact I could post a whole article about supposedly excellent TV programmes that I’ve never seen an episode of.

  4. I’m constantly tempted to write an article about excellent TV programmes (there’s very little “suppose” about it) that everyone should watch. The Wire would definitely be on that.

    I wouldn’t put Band of Brothers on there because i believe it’s a legal requirement that everyone watches it. 😉
