Andre Braugher in General

From Blackfilm.com:

"On the heels of Variety briefly reporting that Andre Braugher has left an episodic role on NBC's ER for a role in the Fox sequel, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, many fans were wondering which role he would play. Would it the The Puppet Master or The Silver Surfer? Yes, the latter is a bit of a stretch. Blackfilm.com has learned that Braugher will play the role of the military general in the sequel. Filming is scheduled to start on August 31, 2006."

What does this mean? Well, while no eyepatch was specifically mentioned, my guess is this:(Thanks to my tea-drinking, redcoated, limey friend Ross for bringing this story to my attention.)

I hope not, as it would be nice to one day see Samuel L Jackson play the character that's based on him.

But as Chris pointed out a few posts ago, that would be a little more than 70% of all the black characters drawn in the last five years.

I don't think Ultimate Nick Fury would be put into a live-action Marvel movie without offering the role to Sam Jackson first. There would be such an outrage from fans. And rightfully so. Cause SLJ would so do it if they asked.

Also, Puppet Master would be very interesting. I almost forgot the movie Alicia Masters is black.

Andre Braugher rules. You know who he'd be good to play? Mr. Terrific.

Unfortunately not, according to CBR:
"He plays General Hager, an old acquaintance of Reed Richards and one of the major additions to the movie."

Any Andre Braugher is better than no Andre Braugher.

Andre Braugher is to acting what Richard Simmons is to basketball!

Jack Bauer is only as cool as he is because his name rhymes with Andre Braugher.

When Andre Braugher sneezes, an angel dies.



Yeah, I don't know what that means, either.
