So weird

by Nick

And then you combine that with this.

So what dead actor/person would you like to see re-animated?

I'm guessing there's some expired session ID in that NY Times link, because all I get is a really stupid non-specific error page telling me I need the latest version of Flash (which I have), the latest version of IE (which I have but wasn't using, but it doesn't make any difference when I try it), or cookies enabled (which I do).

Okay, the link is working now, though it wasn't working on multiple previous attempts today....

Still thinking about whom to reanimate. The first ones that come to mind are Humphrey Bogart, Abraham Lincoln, etc., but I've seen bad examples of that done before.

My first thought is that it will be a good way (once the visual standard is up to it) to be rid of those claims of an actor not looking like the specific historical character.

So JFK will in the future finally look like JFK, not Bruce Greenwood. And Julius Caesar can finally look like he did. And new retro-Bond movies can be made, with someone playing the part in Connery's visage (already practically happened with a video game last year). Maybe that last one is a bad idea.

And, this too is already happening with X-Men 3 being the most known example, actors won't have to get too old for their parts, unless they're children.
