Do you think Romans who ever wanted 500 of something shouted that they want the D?
so someone once called my old english teacher immature (because at this point he was spinning around on a wheely chair) and he said:
“Yeah, but the truth is we never really grow up. We just masquerade as adults because that’s what we’re expected to do.”
and to this day that is the single most profound thing i have ever heard uttered by someone dicking around on a swivel chair

“Yeah, well, I got no where else to go. The ex-wife took the whole damn planet in the divorce. All I got left is my bones.”
[J.J. Abrams stated that the “All I got left is my Bones” line was not actually in the script, but an on-set improvisation by Urban, a Trek fan long before being cast in the film.]

#sometimes i forget how fucking good bones is at what he does #and how the people on the bridge might protect the ship and its crew #but bones is the one who cares for them #who knows their allergies and their old aches and pains #he’s seen their bones drawn their blood stitched them up and sent them off again #and he’s the last face that some of them will ever see #standing over them #calm and quiet and kind #he’s the one who makes it okay

Casting appreciation gif.
This seriously pisses me off because TWO men of the “correct” ethnicity/race were asked to play the role of Khan. I don’t remember their names because this back when Into Darkness was in casting yo but they BOTH DECLINED.
So there’s a HUGE difference between “well, we asked the best in the business and they both said no, so we should go with another actor of the ‘incorrect’ race who is also very well suited for the role” and doing what the Hunger Games did which is literally only let white girls audition for Katniss.
When actors decline there is fuckall you can do. It’s shitty, no doubt, that Khan ended up being white, but BC did a great job in the role, while knowing he was third choice. I won’t begrudge him for taking it, and I won’t begrudge the casting crew for going with him after their best actors declined.
There were actually more than two approached, but they turned it down.
Benedict was cast only a WEEK before production began, giving them basically zero time to get costumes prepped for him, etc.
Someone else in this thread mentioned ordering a rewrite, etc. There is no freaking way a nearly $200mil production is gonna get postponed for a rewrite ONE WEEK before filming begins.
