Let's Play Mad Libs!
Remember that old car trip game "Mad Libs"? Where you put in the nouns and verbs to create a potentially wacky sentence? Well, instead of giving you this story straight, we're going to play a little casting news "Mad Libs" and I think you'll like the result.
Here's the synopsis for first time director Gary McKendry's Killer Elite
(Actor) will play a field operative who works with an elite group that protects the families of fellow SAS Agents. (Badass) plays a former Navy SEAL who leads a team of assassins in pursuit. (Legend) has been approached to play (Badass)'s mentor who is being used against him. It will also feature the attractive (Actress).
So that sounds like a typical military thriller. Maybe it's not something the Pajibans will drool over until I punch in a few names. Let's do that.
Actor: Clive Owen. OK. I like where this is going. The man is good looking and knows how to kick some butt.
It gets better.
Legend: Robert DeNiro. Nice! The man knows his way around a thriller and maybe he's got another good performance left in him.
Actress: Yvonne Strahovski. Yes, Nerds. Stunningly beautifully and should be in every movie. Don't go to your bunks yet, it gets even better.
Badass: JASON STATHAM. He'll be leading a team of assassins who don't even care that he's a former Navy SEAL with a British accent. They're too busy watching him wreck everyone. And maybe they're a little smitten.
Hell of a casting director on this one. Are we sure they aren't Pajiban? Could you guys even do better? Give it a shot in the comments.
