    Default Starting to get a bit nervous...

    Reading the casting news...

    So far...

    Dodee is a communications specialist trying to communicate with the outside world? From the Pantry?

    Phil is a Indy Rock DJ with a secret? Indy rock? Will they disregard the entire "religious right" aspect of the story??? That would be a shame.

    the guy playing Jr. looks like a member of One Direction.

    All this is giving me the "Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher" vibe.

    I am also nervous. I was excited about it possibly being a mini series but now that it will be a tv series I am losing hope. Im not impressed with the casting so far and just feel like this will disappoint.

    Not enjoying the casting either. Also the decision to make it a series was disappointing to me.

    The teaser preview was the best part of the superbowl!

    well........the idea that it is a 'series' is kinda baffling: it is only 13 episodes logn...so far...and that means it might just be more of an old-timey miniseries...like 'roots' and 'rich man, poor man', so, on that score...maybe there's hope

    the casting itself means doodly squat...but the way they seem to be changing the characters is more than befuddling

    still...spielbergs amblin is still involved...and that alone bodes well, to some extent...

    but...i ain't holdin' my breath

    i know many a jack reacher fan who thought the casting of cruisewa flatout idiotic...but the movie, and cruise, won them over: it may not've been ideal, but it wasn't bad...

    i'll give creedence to that little '80's band, Asia and say 'only time'll tell'

    I Believe that bringing this into a mini-series was the best choice they could have done. I mean, you can't just fit it into one movie, and if they decided to make a trilogy or something like that, I just don't think it would of had a good flow. The 13 episode series would be great cause it would be like 100 page and episode, which it a hell of a lot better then trying to fit 600 pages into 1 hour and a half or 2 hours.

    Quite frankly, I'm pretty stoked for this!

    As for the casting, its hard to tell which person would work for who, but since they brought in Dean Norris in for Big Jim, I KNOW it's going to be good!

    From the moment I started reading Under The Dome, I knew I wanted to see it get made into something. I visualized SO many cool shots and stuff for it and I'm excited to see what happens!

    OK. The Barbie & Julia casting has brought me from worried to downright angry. Once again Hollywood spits in the face of the very people that made the book a success.

    I at least hope they put in some James Mcmurtry music, since it was mentioned in the novel.

    I've never understood the habit of movies and television wherein they buy the rights to a great book and then proceed to gut it for names and setting while throwing out the story which made it great. I try to remain hopeful that many of these rumors are false, but I'm too jaded now to know better.
