31 Movie Days: 19

Day 19 - Favorite Cast

This one i
s sort of a cheat because the entire cast worked together in a prior TV series, but my initial gut reaction was the folks on Joss Whedon's SERENITY. Aside from being a all-around perfect movie, the fact is that Whedon assembled the ideal cast - every single one of them have their own distinct personality, and much to Whedon's luck, they all have amazing chemistry with one another. Their dialogue, their relationships, the overall dynamic - it feels truly natural, like the director was sneaking in on the ship Serenity and offering lines of dialogue for these true-to-life ship dudes to say. The dynamite cast features such recognize blokes like Nathan Fillion (CASTLE), Gina Torres (HERCULES: THE LEGENDARY JOURNEYS), Alan Tudyk (DOLLHOUSE), Summer Glau (TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES), Adam Baldwin (INDEPENDENCE DAY, CHUCK), Jewel Staite (STARGATE ATLANTIS), Morena Baccarin (V), Sean Maher (WAREHOUSE 13), Ron Glass (DEATH AT A FUNERAL), and Chiwetel Ejiofor (SALT). If that ensemble isn't enough to wet your appetite, I implore you to take a journey over to that invaluable device known as YouTube and watch a clip or two from the movie or show; not only is this a great cast together, but I would go so far as to say these folks are perhaps some of the top actors in the field today. Want proof to back up my claim? Watch SERENITY. Then come back to me.
