Too psychotic.

Sean Bean was suppose to be the villain again in James Bond: Die another day.  Since he was already the villain in Golden Eye, the idea was scrapped.

I despise John Cusack's acting and I think Robin Williams might have been able to pull off The Shining but Jack's performance was iconic. Phone Post 3.0
