So the producers of the X-Men movie franchise decided to make the same awe-full mistake they made with previous installments of this series by casting Halley Barry for the role of Storm AGAIN!!!!!! Come One Man, nobody liked her in the other ones, what made them think we’d wanna see her in that role again? Now I got love for Halley don’t get me wrong but Halley as Storm just did not work. Maybe she did more research into the character and will be better this go round…but I doubt it. Anyways get that bread Halley, word. Peep the press release via Access Hollywood below:
“I’m in. I think I’m in,” the actress told AccessHollywood.com’s Laura Saltman, when asked if she is 100 percent going to appear in the Bryan Singer-directed Marvel mutant movie, at the junket for her new thriller, “The Call,” in Los Angeles on Saturday.
Out of the dozens of characters the Oscar-winning actress has played, Halle said mutant Storm/Ororo Munroe is one of her all-time favorites.
“I am [excited], yeah,” she said, when asked if she’s looking forward to donning her superhero duds again. “I love Storm. That’s one of my favorite characters that I’ve played. And people love that character as well.”
Now for those of you who didn’t grow up watching the X-Men cartoon or know the origins of Storm or understand why so many X-Men fans are not feeling Halley for the part of Storm, check out this compilation video of Storm speeches from the cartoon series. As you’ll see Halley couldn’t even pull off the right voice for Storm..grrrrr! I gotta say this video gets pretty funny watching them back to back!
And I think Anika Noni would be way better than Halley 4sho!
Anyways that’s my 2Cents on it, I’ll still go see the movie when it comes out too lol! So what do you think? you think Halley is perfect for the part? Do you have any suggestions on actresses who you think would do a better “Storm” than Halley? Holla!
