Miss:

John Travolta in almost anything that isn't Welcome Back, Kotter; Grease; Saturday Night Fever; and Pulp Fiction (but not Get Shorty).

Yeah, Zachari Levi made that movie work IMO.

Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher was pretty bad.    

We've had these debates, but this is only the case if you were a fan of the books.  There is NO indication in the movies that he's supposed be a hulking gigantic man.

For the record the 2nd movie is awful, but not because of Cruise.  It just wasn't any good to begin with...the first Jack Reacher is very rewatchable.

Agreed, but Cruise fans point out that the Jack Reacher movies might not have happened without Cruise, so it's a Catch-22 situation.

Also True.

And a Winner.  I get replacing Katie Holmes, but they could have at least gotten someone that would make you think "Yeah, with a woman that hot, no wonder Bruce is sprung". 

Maggie G is a great actress, but not someone the Greeks would launch ships to Troy for.

 

Wes Chatham as Amos on the Expanse is perfect to me.

I'll give you Pulp Fiction.

He's fucking great in Get Shorty also.  Any other opinion is wrong.

Name roles that were fucked by bad casting or roles that hit the mark.  Who would you have casted?

Zach Levi as Shazam was terrible.  Eli Roth would have been better.

Jason Mamoa was perfect as Aquaman.

The entire cast of Justified was perfect.

Michael Rapaport was a HUGE miss-he was going to be my contribution even before I saw your comment.

That the rest of the casting is so on point makes him stand out even more.

Include his role in Road to Perdition everything except Joe vs the Volcano or The Bonfire of the Vanities also.

Hit:  Brando as Col Kurtz.  Entire movie based on boat ride up a river during war to confront this character.  Tremendous build up and without much screen time, Brando pulled It off as did Martin Sheen throughout entire movie.
