Justin Bieber? ;)

While I'm not a fan of Styles music, from what I've seen of him in Dunkirk he's not too bad.

Met the guy who played the original Eric at a local con this past week. Had no idea he was the guy who played Greg in the hilarious Brady Bunch movies!

Oh my gosh Christopher Barnes??? That’s awesome! Also he was the voice of Spidey/Peter Parker in the mid-90s Fox Kids cartoon if I’m not mistaken. He was very good in that too. :)

Greg Brady (playing guitar): Clowns never laughed before...
:roll:

VB Sequel is hands-down the better one in my opinion. The whole “Roy”/Carol’s lost husband plot device was just genius. :lol:

That's so cool. Did you talk to him about the remake? Or plug the site even? ;)

Barnes hyping up the remake and sharing thoughts on his possible replacement. Eerie timing, no? ;)

Styles has some competition as Asher Angel also auditioned for the role. I would actually much prefer him! Thought he was good Shazam and always liked him from Andi Mack. He just comes across more genuine. Well, he gets my vote. Go Angel!

RuPaul might have passed on voicing Sebastian. Shame, that may have been interesting.

Sounds like the fan "They need to cast Ursula with a REAL drag queen!" push got mixed up in the studio Telephone-Games again, and "RuPaul should play Sebastian!" is what came out at the other end. :lol:

Melissa McCarthy pretty much confirms she's playing Ursula: (at the 10:55 mark)



I'm fine with that I guess. Liked her in Mike & Molly... before her character became unbearable. There was a time when I thought I had seen enough of Melissa, only to enjoy her in Spy. So yeah... she may make a good Ursula.

Is this going to be the "Heelies" version that flopped on Broadway? Could they still FIND enough for the cast? :lol:

On the plus side, at least now we know King Triton is black, so black Ariel is no problem for the remake.

Harry Styles passes on Eric. I was kinda iffy on him anyway, so doesn't really impact me.
