Poll: Thwipping Boys Casting Couch – The Flash

November 6, 2011

The third instalment of the Thwipping Boys Casting Couch sees the boys casting one of Simon’s favourite heroes in The Flash. However, the pertinent question is… Which Flash? Yes, Simon has been moaning about the lack of Wally West in the new DC universe, but it was only right to cast Barry Allen, as any future movie would undoubtedly have him in the role.

Poll: Thwipping Boys Casting Couch – Spider Jerusalem

October 23, 2011

In Episode 7 of Thwipping Boys, Chris managed to surprise no-one by selecting Transmetropolitan’s Spider Jerusalem for the Casting Couch treatment – not an easy character to cast by any means.

We have come up with what we think is a great list of suggestions to think about…though Jon mentioned Gary Busey at one point and doesn’t know where the hell that one came from.

Simon’s Spidered-up the best of the bunch that we discussed to give an idea of how our ideas might look if they ever came to pass, so vote below, and let us know! If you don’t like our choices, you can choose someone else – we’ll reveal who won the public vote in two weeks, since we’re taking a break from the feature for next week’s Halloween show!

Just for reference, here is Spider Jerusalem in all his glory!

And now our choices and the poll!

Poll: Thwipping Boys Casting Couch – The Martian Manhunter, J’onn J’onzz

October 15, 2011

In Episode 6 of the Thwipping Boys podcast we discussed who we thought would be the perfect casting for J’onn J’onzz: The Martian Manhunter. We settled on Christopher Judge, known for his portrayal of the otherworldly Teal’c in Stargate SG:1.

Now we want to know who YOU think should play the powerful, soulful martian in a big budget Justice League movie. After all, the reaction to the Avengers trailer will have the folks at Warner pooing their pants by now, so you can bet they’re already putting together a massive committee of useless movie execs to overcomplicate it and ruin things, as per the Green Lantern film.

Ahem. Anyway, Simon’s made it easier for you by tarting up everyone we discussed (discounting Morgan Freeman and Keith David who we were considering for voice only) to look like everyone’s favourite Oreo-snaffler, so vote below, and let us know! If you don’t like our choices, you can choose someone else – we’ll reveal who won the public vote in next week’s show!
