The Tourist : Paul Bettany …

Paul Bettany …

In the Trivia section it says that Paul Bettany turned down the lead for The King's Speech to do The Tourist. In the King's Speech Trivia section it says the king's part was written for Bettany. WTF? Who in the hell believes a mediocre actor like Paul Bettany, (who actually ruined the elegant and graceful flow of The Tourist with his commoner demeanor and bad acting), could have pulled off The King's Speech? No on believes it but Bettany. There is a reason he will never play Bond or Doctor Who or any lead British part, because he's a bad actor and lacks the refinement needed to play those parts.

I'm watching it again for the 100th time (I really like it), and still feel the same about Betany. He's a douche.

Re: Paul Bettany …

"He's a douche". In about every movie he has been in.

Time to let it go Dave

Re: Paul Bettany …

A central role in a major movie is not written for a mediocre actor.
