    I am a film director and I am strongly against it. For me it is horrible idea and completely disrespectful towards Dean. No computer can ever guess in what emotion and what way he would deliver a sentence. Horrible! Hope they will never do this!

    So they claimed they couldn't find a white guy the right age to play in a Vietnam movie? Says a lot about how different the new generation is compared to us old farts and older farts.

    I always liked Jimmy Dean. He was good on the old Daniel Boone TV series.

    Well here's a novel idea for them - find some new writers with new ideas and make great movies again. Too many remakes that are not as good as the originals. Also find some new actors who keep their political opinions to themselves as not to turn off half of their audience. Many of today's actors are lame. The key to a great actor is having the ability to seem like your character is real. Many today are not very convincing.

    No clue it was a comment in that link. It was a bit tweeted form one of the people commenting on it. I didn't pay attention to the source but it is similar to the comments about now finding anyone with the needed characteristics in for the role so they decided on Dean. I find this all just silly and a way to produce a show with a star they don't have to pay, at least not yet.

    Does James Dean still resonate strongly today with anyone? I have to admit, while I know who he is, I haven't seen any of his movies and I'm supposedly old enough to know better.

    Of 50s rebel icons, Marlon Brando in Wild One is much more powerful to me.



    I can't imagine my 23 year old son would even spend eight seconds thinking about him if I asked. I think he is a bigger than life figure for a very specific time and place and has no meaning for anyone else.

    Post-Post: My wife says she knows who he is, knows the famous picture with the cigarette hanging out his mouth and couldn't care less about him.

    When I was in Japan in the '80s I was repeatedly tole I look like James Dean buy the Japanese. I do not but he was huge there. I would be if this is done well this generation won't even know it was a CG of a dead actor. I don't think the boomers who were fans will be on board.

    I suspect I am some considerable older than you and I've never seen his movies, either.

    When my big brother was in college a local small movie theater had a double feature of Rebel and East of Eden and he took me to see them. Sure, he’s no Brando, but he was a master of his craft in his own way. Probably not as many posters of him and Marilyn Monroe on college dorm room walls these days. I guess he was about my dad’s age, so I was happy to learn a little about movies from that generation.

    Maybe they can re-“record” the Eagles song about him with a digitally recreated Glenn Frey voice too. Ugh, just not sure how we got here. “He was too fast to live, too young to die, so we recreated him digitally for your entertainment....”

    There are 3 things that make a good movie: 1) a good story; 2) a good story; and 3) a good story.

    We'll see...
