“On first seeing the film, Howson noted with dismay that his performance had been dubbed. “I felt really hurt,” he said this week. “All the things I had to do in the film – the cold mornings, the difficult scenes – and then they use someone else’s voice.”
As bad as Howson feels, it is nothing in comparison to the absolute tragic phonecall Josh Pence recieved whereby, not only was his voice going to be dubbed – but his entire face! Armie Hammer is due to star in The Lone Ranger and J.Edgar but Josh Pence only has upcoming projects in Battleship and … wait a sec … The Dark Knight Rises. Seems Pence has it all figured out.
Then we have the ongoing debate regarding mo-cap technology. Despite Zoe Saldana’s acting in Avatar, she recieved little celebration for it. No nominations at The Golden Globes, Emmys or Oscars – despite the film casting her in the lead-female role and winning, or being nominated, for all three. This is something that Cameron believes is a tragedy and proves how little the acting world has embraced the new-technology. Andy Serkis would agree I’m sure.
