With all the buzz about the mysterious Zombieland cameo (yes it is absolutely amazing and well worth the price of the film and no we’re not going to tell you who it is) we wondered who you were hoping it would be? Although it was rumored that the writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick had their eyes set only on Patrick Swayze, that’s just not true (we still love you Swayze!). Swayze was one of the many people the approached for the role and sadly he had to turn down the role due to his fight with cancer.
As we heard from one of the writers at the press conference (read full write up) many people were being considered….
There were any number of actors considered, it’s a long list. Patrick Swayze, Joe Pesci, The Rock, Mark Hamill, Bill Murray, Kevin Bacon, Matthew McConaughey, Sylvester Stallone, Jean Claude Van Damme, Steven Segal, we had a long list of drafts that we wrote to attract and individual actor and it ended well…
Out of this list who would you like to see?
Just so you know, the cameo is not necessarily by a person on this list, these are only the people that the writers mentioned, but there are MANY more possibilities.
If you know who the cameo is by, please don’t ruin it for others, at least wait until the weekend when people have has a chance to see the film before you leave your evil comments.
