Writer's Block: What's my motivation?

If you could replace any actor/actress in a film with someone else, who would you replace, and why?


Honestly, there are probably a few people I'd like to replace, but the one who immediately popped into mind is Katie Holmes in Batman Begins. I haven't seen her in a lot of things, so I can't say that she is a bad actress in general, but I really didn't feel like she suited the role of Rachel very well. Rachel is a tough sell at best, she's sort of a Mary Sue (Batman loves her! She's sassy! She is single handedly fighting crime! She maces assailants! She is incredibly young yet somehow the Asst. DA! She's Bruce Wayne's childhood friend!) and I don't think Katie had the chops to make her likeable. The character wasn't in The Dark Knight long enough for me to decide whether I would have preferred Maggie in the first movie, but I was quite glad when Katie decided not to do the sequel. With Christian Bale's perpetual (and in character) dull surprise, I think we needed someone a bit more playful and smiley. Which Maggie handled nicely.
