At the end of October, the stage play Sherlock Holmes starring David Arquette is playing in a nearby theatre. I’m thinking of going to see it.

The show originally premiered a few years ago in Montreal with Jay Baruchel as the titular character, to which it received great praise. I already can’t imagine Baruchel playing the character, let alone Arquette. According to some articles though, the producer actually went out and sought after the Scream star.

Who knows? Maybe it’ll be good!

My question is: Was there any a time where you felt someone strange was cast for a role, but it turned out great anyways? What about when you knew it would be bad and it was a total flop?
