Upgrade? Downgrade?


It's really a bit touched of me to even be judging such things so early in the game. Ack, tis the nature of the beast! Anyway, Amanda Seyfried's loss is Emily Browning's gain, says EW:

"Emily Browning (The Uninvited) will replace Amanda Seyfried in Zack Snyder's action fantasy Sucker Punch for Warner Bros. The Australian-born Browning is probably best known for her role as Violet in 2004's Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. Seyfried had received the offer and was very interested in the starring role as an insane asylum inmate who loses herself in a fantasy world where she dreams about escaping with her fellow inmates. But she had to decline due to scheduling conflicts with the fourth season of Big Love. (HBO wouldn't release Seyfried from her shooting schedule.) Shooting on Sucker Punch is set for the fall. Evan Rachel Wood, Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, and Emma Stone are all still in talks to costar."

I have nothing against Browning (I liked her in Lemony Snicket actually), but she doesn't exactly make my eyeballs spin with glee like Seyfried does. HBO bastards! I suppose Mandy can comfort herself with boyfriend Dominic Cooper's sweet ass, though.

Siiiiiiigh. Where was I? Ah right, Sucker Punch. Now the only name that really jazzes me up from that list is Emma Stone. I love you, Emma Stone.

Her nerd-shtick in House Bunny grows more endearing with each subsequent viewing. She's totally channeling this weird Franken-beast conglomerate of her Superbad co-stars, Michael Cera and Jonah Hill in that part. Adorkable!
