Asperger's SyndromeA lot of people have been asking me about Asperger's syndrome and some of my experiences with it and some of the conditions. This is largely because, on the internet at least, I seem to be good at hiding it. Most people I meet here don't know that I have Asperger's syndrome unless I directly tell them. I do have it, but what exactly does it mean? First off all, please don't use this as a way to diagnose yourself. If you think that you have Asperger's syndrome, depression, or any other mental condition please see a licensed psychiatrist. You cannot self-diagnose mental conditions. (Hmmm... I kind of have that symptom sometimes, I MUST have this disorder!) Asperger's syndrome is known as a high-functioning autism, and as such many of the symptoms are similar, and yet, in some ways it's very different.Asperger's Syndrome by MrEnter
The most notable symptoms of Asperger's syndrome come from issues with social interaction. Most people seem to notice this because there are a lot of people claiming to be an asshole on the
Aside from Winnie the Pooh, all the recast memes I've done so far are John Musker & Ron Clements movies. What a strange & unintentional coincidence. Why not continue with their first film?
For ARIEL, the actual choice of having Emma Watson seems... wrong. She's already playing Belle & having her play ANOTHER princess is too much like a lazy decision. I have three choices (coincidentally all their first names beginning with "A"). First is Amy Adams, because... well, everyone's already said why she'd be perfect. She's a redhead, has a beautiful singing voice & has played a princess (Giselle). Only downside is she's too old to be a passing for a 16 year old. Next is Anna Kendrick. She's obviously younger than Amy & is also a good singer. However, she played Ariel before on SNL. Would that be considered not counting (since she played her before) or an advantage? Finally, Ariana Grande. Yeah, the controversy speaks for itself. But still, could she work?
ERIC has 5 actors running up for his role: Jake Gyllenhaal (I'm still choosing if he should be Eric of Flynn from Tangled), one of the modern Chrises, aka Evans or Pine (I'm not considering Pratt, since he's already Herc), Logan Lerman or Tom Welling.
KATHY BATES AS URSULA
There's been a lot of interesting actresses I've read to play our favorite sea witch. Queen Latifah? It could work, but I also see a bit of discrimination (the villain of the movie is the only black person). That and she played her before. Pam Ferris? I see her more as the Queen of Hearts. Lady Bunny? It makes sense since Ursula's design was inspired by a drag queen, but... it'd be more fitting to have a woman in the role. Bette Midler? Even though there'd probably be a Winifred Sanderson vibe, she's the runner up. Overall, I went with Kathy Bates. She's played a villain role that earned her an Academy Award & sung decently in 1999's Annie. (Fun fact, when I heard that Annie soundtrack back in the day, I'd sometimes visualize Ursula, Hades & Charlotte in place of Miss Hannigan, Rooster & Lily. This was before I knew they were all from Ron & John movies.) Her bottom octopus-half would be a North Pacific giant octopus.
KELSEY GRAMMER AS KING TRITON
Again, heard lots of interesting choices. Russell Crowe? Too rough. George Clooney? Not sure. Liam Neisen? Too depressing. Gordon Ramsey? People'd be complaining that he should've been Chef Louis. Then came in the thought of Fraiser. He's done rough-around-the-edges characters, Stinky Pete had a nice grandfatherly feel (before he revealed his true identity), Sideshow Bob had the regal sophistication that a king must have, he could sing as Hook in Broadway’s Finding Neverland; just picture how he did Scrooge in 2004.
WAYNE BRADY AS SEBASTIAN
It was first tied between Wayne & Phil Lewis (basically Mosbey with a Jamaican accent), but Wayne balanced out better. He's obviously a great singer, his comedic skills have shined on Whose Line & he's the big Disney fan. In fact, there's one Weird Newscasters where he had to play "a Haitian man who's been unfaithful & is now the victim of a voodoo attack", complete with a Jamaican accent. Yes, he sounded more like Hermes from Futurama, but it still works. As for the crab type, that's hard. There obviously aren't any crabs that look the slightest bit like Sebastian (he actually looks more like a turtle with crab claws & legs), but if I had to choose... probably a Dungeness or a red rock?
SEAN GIAMBRONE AS FLOUNDER
Yeah, I like The Goldbergs! Don't let the Happy Madison logo at the end fool you! Anyway, Sean is a really good kid actor, playing Adam Goldberg in his youth. Going the gambit of emotions like a real kid. & since the movie takes place in 1980-something, guess what year TLM took place? That's right, 1989! Best of both worlds. What type of fish would he be? I haven't researched that far yet.
SCUTTLE, for some reason, I keep thinking Steve Buscemi, but I'd wanna use someone else. I've heard Jeff Bridges & Rick Moranis, but I don't think either of them are "silly" enough. He’d probably he a California gull.
ANDY SERKIS AS FLOTSAM & JETSAM
Yeah, another good use for his Gollum voice. He'd just have to be a little deeper & less hissy. Of course, they'd both be morays.
GRIMSBY I have some people in mind. It's either Michael Gambon, Bill Nighy or Michael Caine (or would he be to tiresom since he's already played a butler with the Nolan Dark Knight movies). I don't wanna use Ian McKellen (too obvious a choice for a British actor), Patrick Stewart (he already said no to Triton) or Jonathan Freedman (already played him).
With CARLOTTA, it's hard to think of someone who's as rosie & cheery as Edie McClurg. I'm tempted to use her, but want at least one of my LAD memes to not have the original voice reprising their role (not counting the Walt era movies). Possibly Kathy Najimy, Jennifer Coolidge or Catherine O'Hara? Not sure.
A BEARDED COLLIE AS MAX
This might've been a slight era? Is Max supposed to be an old English sheepdog or a bearded collie? I guess it might not make THAT much of a difference in the grand scheme of things. I'll wait for what you fans think.
With CHEF LOUIS, it obviously would be great to have him be played by a professional chef. What do you guys think; David Venable? Guy Fieri? Adam Richman? Someone else?
VANESSA has also had some weird actresses choices. Megan Fox & Anne Hathaway seem too old, Amanda Seyfried I don't think could pull off a villain, Eva Green I haven't seen much of & Aubrey Plaza I don't know if she can sing.
No, you're not seeing things; HAROLD THE MERMAN is in this meme. For some of these memes, there'll be some deleted characters that could find their way again here; like Redfeather, Aladdin's Mother, Rocky the Rhino, etc. Bill Hader could work (probably 'cause he looks a bit like Fear from Inside Out), but I don't think he could play a good nerd. Jim Parsons & any of the other Big Bang Theory nerds would be too type-cast. Murr from Impractical Jokers fits, but works he's better with the other enjoyable numskulls.
Yes, character's unnamed, but I always thought his name was SEABISCUIT. From the sounds of it, Will Ryan's voice was brought up a few pitches so Seabiscuit would either have to be done by someone with an already high-pitched voice or altered like Will Ryan's. He'd be a common seahorse.
A GREAT WHITE AS GULT
Not much to say. It's pretty obvious what species Gult is.
All of ARIEL'S SISTERS I haven't gotten yet, only because of the "who seems old enough to play them"? Open to suggestions.
Comment & enjoy!
