20 Book-To-Movie Characters That Were Cast All Wrong
Hayden Christensen as David Rice, Jumper
We love Hayden Christensen, and because of that, we were willing to tolerate some poor acting moments in Star Wars. He hates sand? Fine. He’ll end up as Darth Vader eventually and it will all be worth it. When it comes to Jumper, we’re not sure we can let the missteps slide. The 2008 film destroyed a lot of the plot from the 1992 Steven Gould book, and the actor, who played the main character David Rice, couldn’t help make sense of what story was left. He lacked depth, purpose, and emotion. The movie seemed thrown together and so did its main star’s efforts. We couldn’t find a connection to the character, and the rest was lost on us.
