THR: SImon Pegg will play Odgen Morrow, the co-creator of Oasis, in [RDYP1]   Antibody on Mar 17, 15:46

Guess they want to avoid the obvious casting of a yet another Steve Wozniak lookalike stand-in {nm}   notfabio on Mar 17, 15:49

Pegg is also much younger than in the book. {nm}   Antibody on Mar 17, 16:00

Presumably they are going to age him with makeup or CGI since he's supposed to be adult age in the 80's and this is set in the future. {nm}   notfabio on Mar 17, 16:23

Unless they're NOT going with 80's nostalgia and going with the 90's or 00's. Spielberg has said he wasn't as interested in that aspect {nm}   notfabio on Mar 17, 16:29

But that would raise holy hell.....with the book fans. {nm}   notfabio on Mar 17, 16:29

wonder if there are any fans here. i didnt like it {nm}   islander on Mar 17, 16:40

I did the audiobook thing, I thought it worked well enough, Armada however....... {nm}   notfabio on Mar 17, 16:42

Loved RP1 but Armada was so bad I ddn't even finish it... {nm}   journey on Mar 17, 18:06

Huge potential for Ready Player One. I think it is a perfect vehicle for Spielberg. Armada was a mess (just finished it). {nm}   Willroast on Mar 17, 18:40

That should be Ogden. I miscorrected THR's typo of Orgen.   Antibody on Mar 17, 15:55

I thought it was the Gallagher brothers who created Oasis {nm}   numbersix_99 on Mar 17, 16:31

I can't wait for this movie. The 80's nostalgia is essential. {nm}   BlackThursday on Mar 17, 17:26

I'm also sure he'll just cut out the references to himself in the movie. Might come off egotistical. {nm}   BlackThursday on Mar 17, 17:35
