20 Book-To-Movie Characters That Were Cast All Wrong
Keanu Reeves as Jonathan Harker, Dracula
Let us be upfront: we love Keanu Reeves, but his role as Jonathan Harker in Bram Stoker‘s Dracula was a less than stellar performance. His character, a lawyer who is sent to make arrangements for real estate with the vampire and ends up a prisoner, was critiqued by many. His poor accent and the lack of depth he provided his character were cited as major issues, and his work was shown in stark contrast to his incredible and practiced co-stars Anthony Hopkins and Gary Oldman. He was a distraction from the quality parts of the movie. The book is a classic and a clear inspiration for many existing movies and books, and we were sad to see the actor stumble through the story. We’re glad to say he came out on top in other roles.
