Not so sure. I think there was altogether too much mucking about with the plot and characters already. I agree with you concerning Roy Scheider. Great, but a different kind of great. Donald Sutherland probably would have been my choice for the part.Originally Posted by AdmiralAdama
I think it a pity that Dimitri Moisevitch was cast in the way he was, but with the political subplot, it worked, although I think it was a mistake giving the movie a political aspect at all.
2010 must have been a daunting prospect, given just WHAT it was following. It must be like trying to sing Andrew Lloyd-Webber songs, when you are not Sarah Brightman.
Helen Mirren, Bob Balaban and John Lithgow were my high spots in the casting, although Lithgow's Curnow was never allowed to develop the humor that he might have. Balaban, in particular, was just perfect.
