Friday Videos are Late, But Still saying WTF?

So you know how people picture different actors or models or even random dudes they know in the role of fictional heroes? Yeah. I would be shocked if anyone pictured any of these dudes as the heroes of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.

Especially fluttery Brad with his long long hair.

    Rhage? Really?

    And all of a sudden I feel the need to re-read Lover Unbound to see if I can somehow develop a crush on Vishous and forgo Zsadist.

    Rachael says:

    You know, I could see Paul Walker as Rhage.  But that’s it.  The rest of them, especially Zsadist (WTF, Buffy guy?) and Ryan Reynolds for Vishous (the hell?) – are just not what I saw when I read the books.

    um………..hella NO…and 5 more to go with it…geez, spike as Z???….teh no!

    Polly says:

    Hell, yeah! That was hilarious! And the hair on Brad Pitt. I’d forgotten it used to be like that. I love that whoever put this together was clearly trying to choose shots that showcased everyone’s characteristic emotions—Zsadist (Spike!) is Tortured, Phury is Troubled and Emo.

    I started laughing hysterically when James Marsters (Spike) came on the screen, and haven’t quite stopped yet… oh, man.

    Melissandre says:

    I can literally hear the Brothers bitching that anyone would dare put their stories in a trailer with a Pink song.  That sums up the fail of that clip right there.  Meanwhile, I’m sorry Hugh, but this guy is Wrath:

    PS – This is an actual cartoon character, which I sadly saw before reading any of the books.  Now he’s eternally cast in my head movie!

    My skillz at teh interwebs sucks.  Hope this works instead:

    I was trying to figure out who the actor playing Butch was, but then the writing told me it was Colin Farrell. Thanks! And, wha?

    I suck.

    Meggrs says:

    Wrath? No. Rhage? No. Zsadist? WTF no. Butch? Um, sorta close, actually. Damn. V? Smoking hot RR, but no. Phury? HAHAHAHAHAHA. Gasp. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

    And props to Melissandre for mentioning that editing together a Brotherhood clip to a Pink song is unintentionally HILARIOUS.

    Wow. I mean, I TOTALLY get the idea of casting a role in your head—I do it all the time. But with the possible exception of Colin Farrell’s Miami Vice role for Butch, and (HAHAHAHAHA) emo Brad Pitt for Phury (God, I hate Phury), none of this even remotely resonates with me.

    Then again, if I had to mention at gunpoint who I had mentally cast in some of these roles, I’d likely get stoned off the interwebs, so….

    None of the actors appeal to me at all, let alone visualizing them as the Brothers!

    Hahahahahaha!!!!  Smith Jerrod!! 

    Ah… thanks, I needed that.

    This person didn’t read the same books I did.  That’s all I have to say.

    Susan/DC says:

    I haven’t read the books so have no opinion on which actor fits the role, but I have to say I found Jason Lewis (Rhage in the video) pretty intriguing.  Heck, I just found him pretty.  He’s the only one of the actors I didn’t recognize and haven’t seen before—who is he and what’s he been in?  I may need to get out more.

    Kate Jones says:

    Spike and Brad Pitt as the twins?  Really??  I know they don’t really look alike, what with the scars and everything, but in the immortal words of GOB Bluth, “COME ON!!”

    Spam word “various92.”  Indeed.

    closetcrafter says:

    Has everyone forgotten that these guys are supposed to be HUGE, like cartoonishly huge? Like the Pink song, but come on that was a big bunch of Pansies with the wrong color hair. Had to stop watching it when they got to Butch. Colin Farrell is like 5’6” people. Come on. Brad Pitt weighs 2 pounds and Hugh Jackman has the proper intensity and is tall, but weighs 2 and 1/2 lbs. If they were going to use real people to represent those guys, they would have to come from MMA. You know with real musculature and some tatoos and scarring.

    Meggrs says:

    OMG, closetcrafter, I would now KILL to see someone redo this video with pro wrestlers and death metal.

    Or, yanno, rap, since the Brotherhood are the whitest black brothers out there. Sigh.

    lissa says:

    Goes to look for images of wrestlers…and Oh my…I maybe they are all /NOT/ steroid pumped up men. These muscles actually look natural. And that one already has the black work Tattoo…hum..[1].jpg

    Quizzabella says:

    Lol, Melissandre that picture of Wrath is totally Peter Steele from the band Type O Negative.

    Zoe Archer says:

    I could say something relatively erudite and profound about the subjective nature of reading and how each reader interacts with the material in a closed system of engagement that is highly dependent on their idiosyncrasies, psychological landscape and cultural environs. 

    Instead, I’ll say: guh?

    shannon says:

    i have ALWAYS thought a young pre-strung out peter steele was a ringer for wrath…again…PRE-strungout..  he even did a layout for playgirl waaaaay back ….in his prime

    Robin says:

    I don’t think any of those guys were big enough to qualify as one of the Brothers but my mind easily dismissed the whole premise and proceeded to enjoy the clip anyway.

    Ohhh, pretty.

    ashley says:

    I’ve never read the black dagger brotherhood but I think Hugh Jackman could play most any romance novel hero.  also, that was a great video, it makes me really want to read the books and the characters have distinctive enough personalities that they don’t look like repeats of each other.  plus, any character who could be played by brooding tortured spike looks interesting enough for me. :)

    kinseyholley says:

    Susan: Jason Lewis played a regular character on Sex and the City – he was in the movie as well.  See Absolute Hunk

    I think he might be a good Rhage.  All the other casting choices were whack.

    I’ve never come up with a good choice for my boy V.

    I haven’t read any of the books and no plans to, but I have to say I had never seen Ryan Reynolds before and yum, eye candy! :)

    I didn’t recognize Jackman with the long hair.  Farrell is nice to look at if one can forget that he’s like … short.

    I’ve always thought of them as WWE types, sitting on normal furniture and breaking it etc. Not the sort of people you’d want to have around the hhouse.
    (hot85. Yeah)
