Random Fandom Thoughts Are Random  

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.

She is CRAZY! I mean, how over-the-top can you possibly be? GAH! *gets pitchfork*

Stockard just didn't have the sweetness that needs to be underneath the steel. Lois has to be vulnerable somewhere; Stockard is like a tank. I mean, she has the hard-edged journalist part down, but the romantic? I can't see it. And she and Christopher just look odd together. I couldn't see them being a couple in a million years. Again, don't get me wrong, I love her to death. Hell, I grew up on Grease and I'm seen most of her other work. Just can't see her in this.

You know, that's a great idea. I had never even thought of that. Too bad she's not blonde; then again, I like Christine Taylor for my Lucy. But that would have been awesome if they had thought to show more of their outer life in the films. You're brilliant!

Well, I guess I like to think outside the box. XD *blushes*

But yeah, Stockard is just too... hard-nosed to be Lois, as odd as that sounds. The actress definitely needed to be able to do that 'over-the-moon, girl-in-love' thing, and Margot had it, hands down. :p

Was a great idea, my little genius! *snugs* Oooh, I love you!

God, I'm going to hate myself for this, but she would be better as Maggie. And it's not even a sexual-orientation issue as much as raw emotional strength. It's very difficult for me to imagine her having the deep-down romanticism that Lois has to have. I just can't see her sighing after anyone ever.
