I would have to the hulk movie for being the worst jennifer connoly and Eric Bana have no on screen chemistry at all. My mom reckons that Hayden (anakin) and natalie portman (padme) have no on screen chemistry but I disagree.
OK, the problems with Cyclops, Anakin, Padme and so on are down to the way their characters were used.
Had Cyclops been given more screen time along the same lines as Wolverine then we'd see just how good Cyclops could be. James Marsden was a great choice for Cyclops and we got a chance to see what he was capable of in that role at the end of X-Men 2. Shame he wasn't used properly.
Most of your chioces come down to how well they were utilised, and not down to whether or not they were mis-cast.
Blaming "on screen chemistry" on the actors isn't fair when you consider what films they were involved in. Star Wars Episode II isn't renowned for having a great script, and Hulk was a bit of a mess anyway.
Me? I'd say my choice goes to John Conner from Terminator 3 played by Nick Stahl. He not only looked NOTHING like Edward Furlong or John Conner from the "future visions" in Terminator 2, but he didn't look anything like the "saviour" of humanity like the past Johns did. Totally wrong.
I think Hayden was a good choice for young Vader. But I think Jake Lloyd was the worst actor to pick for kid Vader. The kid cannot act, and he looks nothing like Hayden.
Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me.
I have said this so many times in the batman section but the Keaton and Burton lovers just dont get it,they never will.Michael keaton was so totally wrong for the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman.He was by far the worst casting choice in comicbook history because of how physically wrong he was for the role.I mean pudgy gut,receding hairline,half bald,short runt,for tall,muscular,handsome,full set of hair Bruce Wayne? what a total joke!!! Some people just dont get it though no matter how much you spell it out to them that THATS the reason they are redoing and restarting the batman franchise because his casting choice pissed off so many die hard Batman fans because he brought no crediblity to the role because he didnt even come close to fitting the part.Tim Burton only cast him be cause he was friends with him and felt comfortable working with him,he didnt care about making the best casting choice possible.I have spoken to so many batman fans over the years both on the net and in real life who hated the first two films because Keaton was so miscast for the role.With Superman,Richard Donner made the perfect casting choice In Christopher Reeve,he so fitted the role,But Tim Burton screwed the batman movies up big time with his horrible casting choice of keaton.Thank god for Batman Begins and Chrisopher Nolan because unlike Burton and schumacher,they seem to understand the batman movies and care about the fans.Casting Christian Bale was a great choice because not only is he a good actor but he fits the part as well and will bring credibility to the role because of that which Keaton could not.Then there is Halle berry who rivals keaton.sorry but she is ugly looking,not at all attractive like catwoman is suppose to be.Horrible casting choice there as well.Dont even get me started on Chris O'donnel.Not only was he way too old for the role of Robin his acting is horrible. Schumacher topped Burton with his casting choice of Clooney for the role.That guy is not good looking at all for the role of handsome Bruce wayne.the guy looks like Eddie Munster for god sakes!!!!

Whoa wait a minute.how was Val Kilmer wrong for Batman other than the fact he was too lazy to dye his hair black? Other than that,I thought he made a great Batman,he just had a bad script to work with because of corny lines and he at least resembled the role.
Those two, especially Jennifer Connoly, were wasted in that awful movie. She is a great actress and her talent is wasted in such mess.
If you mean the remake, the only reason I found any goodness in this movie was Angelina Jolie and Nicholas Cage, good choices but crap movie.
Totally TOTALLY agree with you there, can't even stand the actor in the first place. I am ashamed to own this on dvd.
Agree with you on the Troy thing as well. I had no problem with Eric Bana and Saffron Burrows in the cast, but again they were wasted in what could have been a total classic if it was done to perfection.
Urgh he ruined DareDevil, should have gone with an unknown actor for the role of DareDevil. Made it MUCH darker and violent, taken Farrel out and gave more scenes to Jennifer.
