Foxy to play Racer X

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Wow, that's good casting! Remember once upon a time when Johnny Depp was going to play Speed and Nicolas Cage was going to be Racer X?

"Racer X, who is secretly Speed's brother, Rex Racer." -- Ha, they said that whenever Racer X appeared on sceen! And secret siblings? Right up Foxy's alley, eh? I just hope they ditch the stupid monkey.

I really like both Emile Hirsch and Foxy so I'm definitely going to go see this movie though I don't really know what it's about. Do you know the cartoon?

Ha! Speed Racer was this really poorly drawn Japanese cartoon but it's SO MUCH FUN. Speed drives this car that's really souped-up, the Mach 5, and does all kinds of races. The car can go underwater, it has rotor blades that can chop down trees, oil slicks, if I recall correctly. And it had a really nifty theme song. Racer X always ends up coming to Speed's aid since there are always villains trying to do him in but we never see his face. So in that respect, it's a bit of a drag for Foxy fans, but he should be wearing a very formitting racing outfit!

Haha, sounds like fun.

Uh, I just watched the first three episodes of Drive. I don't know why I didn't do it before but I love it. And Tully is so Mal like :D

I'm totally digging Drive so far. It's fun to have a show starting just as other shows are winding down.

I know! I wish I had that theme song. Or that funny remix from oh, 10 years ago or more.

Ahhh, got it! So Foxy's the "mysterious" Racer X? Interesting...

Yep. *nods* He's very heroic and masked and in Spandex all the time, LOL. Now if only Josh were playing Gambit, heh.

(And where the hell are Josh's movie roles? *gripes yet again*)

Our household has been contemplating the casting of the Speed Racer movie for as long as I can remember. So seeing Foxy's playing Racer X? I was running around the house like a MAD WOMAN the other night telling EVERYONE and mom went, "Damn, that's good casting!"

Yes, it really is good casting! ;)

It's a little weird that Christina Ricci is so much older than Emile Hirsch but other than that, looks like a good cast! I really wonder what kind of tone they're going to go with. And, of course, we won't see Foxy's face for most of the movie! But that formfitting racing suit should look very good!

Just think of his voice though... and the head bob as he gives his warnings... I'm all squeaky-happy about this. ♥

Awww, yeah, and lots of mouth & chin on display. Squeaky-happy is good.
