John Cusack – Richard Nixon
John Cusack is pudgy, lovable, and quirky, so he plays well in rom-coms. However, casting him as an unpopular president was a huge mistake for The Butler. He had a terrible prosthetic nose and sounds nothing like the 37th president. People didn’t buy into it.
Keanu Reeves – Johnathan Harker
Keanu Reaves has some pretty bad performances under his belt, and Bram Stoker’s Dracula was no exception. Francis Ford Coppola enjoys Reeves’ work, but he’s not an Englishman, so the accent seemed unnatural and stilted. Overall, he should have gone with someone else.
