Now, for most of us, when we’re starting out, the mere idea of garnering fans is so far away from where we’re at that we tend to nod and then go on about the business of getting our bookie wookies finished and edited and all that good jazz. And then we move right on into worrying that our books won’t sell and all that bad jazz. So, you know, we keep busy.
What change from the norm in popular entertainment (books, TV, movies, etc.) had you the most worried, but ended up being something you loved? My answer -- the casting of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in the first X-Men movie. Hugh's a foot too tall to play Wolverine as he is in the comics, but the moment Hugh was onscreen he BECAME Wolverine, and was pretty much perfect. So, kudos to the casting director for ignoring fan pressure and casting the right guy for the role.
