Am I to understand that the scene I described may very well be in the movie? Nice! Can't believe I predicted that off the top of my head like that.
No I think you may have misread my post. I said JFK, Jr.
. I'm guessing his scene will be a quick non-speaking role. Maybe a recreation of that iconic scene of Lil' JFK giving his dearly departed dad a final salute as the hearse drives away.
Don't know if I'd really want to see any others added to the list seeing as how I'd like the movie to spend as much time as possible on scenes that are actually in the book.
Also, I don't think you should count on me for any other real scoops. All I had to do with the pictures (and that particular JFK, Jr. scoop) is that I happened to be a lucky fly on the right wall at the right time. I happened to be browsing Facebook at the time he posted the scoops and ran off with them eagerly ready to tell anyone I could find without stopping to think about the poor old guy.
I completely understand. You'll notice that the key word in my original post was "may
." I'm just saying that if your scoop is valid and JFK Jr. is cast, is it so much of a stretch to think that JFK himself may be cast as well? And if that's the case, is it not safe to guess that said character will be featured in the scene I described?
Furthermore, I don't want to give the impression that I consider you to be some kind of mole in the production. Far as I'm concerned, a valid piece of news is a valid piece of news, regardless of which reliable source it comes from or how lucky we all were that the story broke at all.
Also, I hear what you're saying in regard to conservative use of real-life characters, especially real-life characters who weren't in the graphic novel. Hell, we have enough in the graphic novel to deal with already. However, I would advocate the use of real-life figures if it were done in such a way that it made the characters look better. The JFK scene I described, for example. Another example would be the McLoughlin Group who we will allegedly see in the movie debating Dr. Manhattan.
See what I mean?
