I think the worst casting is a recent casting!

Jack Reacher a character in a series of books by Lee Childe is a drifter, ex US marine, 6' 5" athletic guy, hard as nails with an eye for the ladies!

Who is cast in the leading role...................Tom Cruise!

They are fantastic books and well worth a read if you stumble across them. If you read the first chapter of any of Lee Childe's books you will understand why Tom Cruise is not the guy to play this part!

Admittedly a strange choice, but the trailer looks good. Proper cheesey stuff, it won't win any oscars but I'll still give it a watch.

Pierce Brosnan for 007. He had/has the physique and looks but I just never found his delivery of Bond right at all.

The part should have gone to Tommy Steele! - Not an American who played the part as if he had just got off the aeroplane! - Or should that be 'Airplane?'

In 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' Dick van Dyke was 'Pissed-Up' most of the time! - none of the cast could stand him!

BTW? Who is noone?
