YOU WANT MAD MAX 4 NOT TO SUCK? YOU TALK TO ME
Ever since it was announced that George Miller had decided to continue the Mad Max franchise with Mad Max 4: Fury Road people have been going bat shit trying to figure out who will be playing the new king of post-holocaust demolition derby. Some have said Tom Hardy (Blackhawk Down, Star Trek Nemesis) is already locked in for the role and still others (mostly fans) have been ejaculating on message boards about how Sam Worthington (Terminator Salvation, Clash Of The Titans remake) is the only man for the job.
Now I have nothing against either of those guys. Granted I'm not a huge fan of their movies but on their own each man has his own unique gift he brings to the big screen. However, I think there's a relative unknown that would be perfect for Mad Max that folks should think about before any casting decisions are made. My pick for Mad Max is Misha Collins aka Castile from Supernatural. First up check the dude out, he's got the perfect look for it:
Outside of that he is brilliant at putting across that cool detached vibe that Mel Gibson made so necessary in Mad Max before. On Supernatural Collins character of Castile is an Angel but one trying to hold back a simmering rage. His demeanor and calm assuredness makes him incredibly bad ass on the show without any bullshit tough guy machismo. Not only is Collins perfect in his style and natural ability but also because he's still unknown enough to make Mad Max his own. Worthington will be tied to his portrayal of Perseus once the Clash Of The Titans remake hits and that will really take away from whatever goes down with Mad Max 4.
So that's who I think should be Mad Max in the new flick but if Hollywood holds true they'll fucking hire Justin Timberlake as Mad Max and Topher Grace as The Great Humongous. Anyhoo, here are some shots of the new Mad Max car and a bad guy car from the Mad Max 4.
