On once again viewing the auditions for Lois Lane in STM, I am thoroughly terrified by Leslie Ann Warren and her shrieky high drama, but to mention the dither. OH DEAR GOD, THE DITHER! *facepalm* Anyone that talks smack about Margot and the nutty should take a REALLY good look there. *hides* She scares me.
Also, how Margot thought Stockard Channing could be a better Lois, I'll never know. Don't get me wrong; I love Stockard's performances for the most part and she's a fine actress. But she's not Lois Lane; I actually think she's just a little too hard-nosed to be her. Not to mention that she had about 0% chemistry with Christopher. Betty Rizzo, yes; Lois Lane, no.
After Margot, the closest for me is Debra Raffin. Not pitch-perfect, but would work in a pinch. Maybe. I don't think I would have gotten so into the series if that had been the case; I think I identify too strongly with Margot's version.
But that's just my two cents.
