The Small Things

Anyone else find themselves getting baffled by the small things? Just noticed on the pre-order for Jumper, it does not even list the main character under the "actors".

Wouldnt you think Hayden would be listed first? Its these small things that baffle me....:banghead:

It's because he's not an actor. He's a coffee boy who George Lucas was forced to put in the newer Star Wars movie because the real actor couldn't make it.

All his name on the title would do is hurt sales.:p

Seems that Amazon just takes the entire cast list, probably ripped off from IMDB, and lists the first two or three actors alphabetically. It must be an automated process, because some of the names it comes up with are just ridiculous. Way to market, Amazon.

Coming from Amazon, it doesn't bother me one bit. It's hard for me to bitch about the best not being good enough.

I really dont understand why he gets dissed alot. I honestly think there are a hell of ALOT worse actors than he. Have you actually seen Jumper?? Or are you simply basing your judgment on his SW performance? I think he put on a great performance in Jumper....not Oscar worthy, but then again this type of movie wouldnt really produce Oscar caliber performances. Nonetheless, it was an excellent movie and was really cool to see Mace Windu and Anakin back on screen together.

Just use Amazon for buying at great prices and get info about the movies elsewhere. I'd rather they save the cost associated with keeping this kind of information up to date, so they can keep having great prices and service. These "little things" would cost Amazon money, as a person would have to proof-read this stuff.

That's because Hayden Christensen is not an actor. He was just mopping the floor at the Star Wars set and they needed an Anakin.

Because he is a terrible actor and Jumper is another movie that proves it quite admirably.
