...that in all the VA films, I don't think Kevin has actually made a bad casting choice. I know various people have downers on Linda F and Jeremy London, but personally, I enjoyed their performances. London especially gets a hammering all the time, but as it's the only thing I've ever seen him in, I thought he was fine.
Not trying to start a debate on Lina or Jeremy's performances, but as VocalBob says, there's some great comedy to be had when actors step out of character. For example, Leslie Nielson was not a comedy actor before he was offered Airplane. George Kennedy in the Naked Gun was brilliant, as was Lloyd Bridges in Airplane again.
Also, Jason Lee was quite out of the character I know him for when he was in Enemy Of The State, and he was very good in that (and still gives the best ever delivery of the line "Holy Shit!").
Added to which, Kevin's directing, so he'll just re-shoot until they get it right, although it seems they're doing fine anyway.
It's all good!
