Topic: Temuera Morrison

I watched an interview with Temuera Morrison on youtube yesterday. I don't know if I'm super late on this, but I thought it was cool. He is very funny! Here's the link:

I think it's kinda sad though that he is having a hard time finding work. I'm totally buying his book!

Re: Temuera Morrison

Wasn't he supposed to be in The Green Lantern?

Bats roll

Adult Child of Alien Invaders

Re: Temuera Morrison

I was thinking about it but I don't know if I'm ready to see him in that kind of role. I still haven't recovered from Cameron Diaz's performance in Vanilla Sky...

Re: Temuera Morrison

vanilla sky? wasn't that from 2003?

Re: Temuera Morrison

Yeah. But I probably saw it a few years after.

But she's a total nut job in it. I can't look at her without thinking...a quote I don't think I can safely repeat on this forum.

"Next time I'll just reach over and pull somebody's head off."

Re: Temuera Morrison

Fairyblood the movie Once We were Warriors really shows the way it is
the Modern  Day People taking customs of O, Face Tatoos   etc,,not
relly Happy Lot then you see the People who still live by the Old
Customs .
Bats

Adult Child of Alien Invaders cool

Re: Temuera Morrison

Thanks for starting this post, Ariana. Now I am all psyched to go see the "Green Latern". I hope he finds work too. Having been unemployed for long stretches at a time myself, I can surely feel for him there.

A man's worst enemy can't wish on him what he can think up himself. Yiddish saying

Re: Temuera Morrison

My thoughts on Temuera Morrison is that he did a good job of playing Jango Fett but he wasn't tall enough to play the part because Jeremy Bulloch who played Boba Fett in the original Star Wars trilogy is 6' 1". Morrison is only 5' 7" which is pretty short for a man. I always envision the Fett's as being tall and authoritative. It just messes up the storyline that Boba is a clone of Jango.

Re: Temuera Morrison

If I may, I can explain the height differences in the characters. In the Republic Commando/ Imperial Commando book series (I know is no longer canon, but it still is to me) there is a mention of why Jango is so short. When he was growing up on a farm on Concord Dawn, he and his family weren't exactly well off. There were times where they couldn't afford proper nutrition. And since he didn't get enough proper nutrition as a child, he didn't really grow to his full height potential. But since Boba was "born" or should I say "hatched" on Kamino, he had the exact nutrition he needed as a young child, so he and his Clone brothers were able to grow to their full height potential. So see, the height difference was acknowledged. And Tem could totally play Boba despite his stature. These days, they could use certain techniques when filming to make him appear taller if they wished. ;-)

I didn't just choose the Fett Life, it chose me.

I'm not sure if I buy that or not. I've warmed to the prequel trilogy a bit I must say. I mean I never hated them but I've never really loved them either.

Re: Temuera Morrison

Read the books to decide that. This reference to Jango was mentioned in either True Colors, Order 66 or Imperial Commando: 501st. In fact, read the entire series! They're good reads! You won't regret it! ;-)
