Why didn't they get Rashida Jones to play Lois Lane?


I mean, she looks virtually like a young Margot Kidder. It's especially puzzling considering that Bryan Singer was trying his damnest to ape Richard Donner's 1978 movie.

Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane has to be one of the worst casting decisions ever for a superhero movie.

Yes that may be so but can she act? Looks aren’t everything.

She can act better than a charisma vacuum like Kate Bosworth, that's for sure.

LOL!

At the time, rumor had it that every name actress in Hollywood turned the role of Lois down.

Maybe Jones was one of the actresses who read the script and decided they had better things to do.

reply

Parker Posey was right there. She'd been perfect.

GROSS!....RASHIDA IS A TALENTED FUNNY BEAUTIFUL WOMAN...MARGOT KIDDER IS AN ANNOYING CAVE TROLL WITH HERPES OF THE PERSONALITY.PLEASE DO NOT COMPARE THINGS SO DISSIMILAR.

Need someone with sex appeal for Lois Lane.

reply

What made Margot Kidder's interpretation unique wasn't her "sex appeal". Kidder gave Lois a fragile, demure, and innocent quality, while also possessing a small degree of grit. She also possessed the ability to switch from confident, feisty, intrepid reporter to wide-eyed, wondering girl that just wants to believe.

If you ask who Lois Lane should've been ideally Rachel McAdams.

Kate Bosworth is probably one of those actresses where anything she's in people don't like her character at all or just don't care about her.
