But, then there's another reason to get excited, and it has to do with the cast. Turns out that Cameron has decided on his leading man and woman.
I sorta exploded when I read that. Sam Worthington is an Aussie actor. He won an AFI award for his role in Somersault (but, to be honest, who didn't? lol). He was great in that, and I've liked him in stuff like Gettin' Square, The Surgeon and he was... different in Macbeth and he's in the upcoming Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) thriller Rogue. Plus, let's face facts here, he's a hot bastard, so ya know... he's got that going for him.
And Zoe. Well, Zoe's a sweetheart. I'm so glad she's finally gonna get a role to show her off to a big audience. I haven't seen Crossroads (the ill-fated Britney Spears movie) but Zoe almost made me hire it out... as a weekly... with a coupon. But she charmed the pants off of me (...) in The Terminal (a movie I didn't like) and Centre Stage and had a small role in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. It's annoying she wasn't in the sequels - did something happen to her character that I don't remember?
Aaanyway. They're both majorly hot and they're in a new James Cameron movie so I don't think I'll be able to contain myself until Avatar arrives. Aagh!
