I guess my point is these 2 seem miscast to me.
Of course, I may change my mind after watching it next week.
That's a fair point, but one I don't agree with in this instance. I'm seeing it early next week too, probably Tuesday, so I look forward to sharing impressions.
And, yeah, of course I brought up Heath Ledger because I would have thought he was miscast as The Joker until I saw him. In my opinion, his performance defies superlatives and may be one of the greatest acting transformations I've ever seen on screen in any film. It was obvious the first time I saw him, in "10 Things," that he was charming, charismatic, and certainly talented, but I never would have guessed he would show such uncanny and uncommon acting virtuosity some eight or nine years later.
FWIW, I consider someone who is a medical doctor or an engineer as having a "technical" background.
So do I. They resemble ordinary non-technical folks, however. I'm surrounded by them in my city, and my own sister is an MD, but they don't look any different from my colleagues except in the way we dress (doctors and engineers are inferior dressers, BTW, and the engineers as a whole tend to look nerdier
I mean, Einstein looked like a retired circus clown!
Ha ha. Good point. Cute story about him I enjoyed telling my niece and nephew recently.
One day Professor Einstein was eating lunch alone at a diner in Princeton. He had forgotten his reading glasses, so he turned to the stranger next to him and meekly asked him to read the choices on the menu for him. The stranger put his arm on Einstein's shoulder and softly said, "It's OK, buddy, you don't have to be embarrassed."
