well i really like the film so for me it's perfect with the cast it has but it would have been an interesting dynamic if Ben had taken Mathews role .... :D
It might have made it altogether darker though and made Chip sinister played against Bens dryer delivery.
it's a hard one........... :wink:

I posted this topic because I noticed that no one mentioned Matthew in the co-star thread. :o

Matthew was just alright.
It's just he didn't know that Jim will look that big. If you know what I mean.
He didn't need to try and pull it his way - he thought his [Matthew's] name was gonna do everything for him.
That's a bit cruel though to say that.
Now the casting director would choose someone else I think.
But that year and time - they felt perfect together.

It wasn't the actors that ruined it, it was the script.
