Hollywood's Young and Annoying Test for JLA

October 15, 2007

Hollywood's finest selection of hot, young, annoying actors (plus rapper Common!), 35 or 40, in fact, began testing this weekend for a role in the Justice League of American movie. Who was on hand (besides rapper Common)? Why, let me tell you:

On the roll call are Adam Brody (Fox's "The O.C."), Joseph Cross ("Running With Scissors"), D.J. Cotrona ("Windfall"), Mary Elizabeth Winstead ("Grindhouse"), Michael Angarano ("Sky High"), Teresa Palmer ("Wolf Creek"), Max Thieriot ("Jumper") and rapper Common.

The cast of NBC's "Friday Night Lights" is well-represented as well, with Minka Kelly, Adrianne Palicki and Scott Porter also among those testing for parts.

It seems that since director George Miller couldn't afford Christian Bale and Brandon Routh reprising their roles, he's gone with the next best thing: actors from movies and TV shows that I either hate or haven't heard of (with a few exceptions, like rapper Common). Clearly, if Adam Brody can pull off both the roles of rich hipster nerd and Zach Braff-wannabe, he's an obvious choice for a superhero, as is whoever DJ Cotrona is, and, of course, rapper Common.
