gommer1994 "It's alive! It's alive! Oh, in the name of God! Now I know what it feels like to be God!" It's unfortunate that they cut out that line for a while. It's one of my favorite lines and really nails in the mad scientist character that is Dr. Frankenstein. What a performance. #Frankenstein #DrFrankenstein #DoctorFrankenstein #BorisKarloff #ColinClive #Universal #UniversalMonsters #TheMonster #Horror #HorrorFilm #HorrorMovie #Classic #ClassicHorror #1931 #1930s #ItsAlive #Quote #MaryShelley #Fritz 4d

rob.in.tn Last night, while RE-RE-reading #Frankenstein, I had @actordougjones pop into my mind as a perfect choice to portray the misshapen & misunderstood creation of #DoctorFrankenstein. While running the nuances & subtlies of the creature through my mind, I realized that the monster is, in essence, an living zombie.

Then today, I tripped across this 2008 interview with Doug by www.RottenTomatoes.com (where they rightfully say he's "one of the best physical actors in Hollywood") and was thrilled to discover that he would love to do the part of Frankenstein's monster.

I have always imagined the monster as very lean, more so than portrayed by Hollywood. The monster is made from dead bodies and would thus be withered. He might actually appear quite emaciated. After all, in the movies his clothes seem to hang off his limbs.

His tissues have been re-animated AFTER they began rotting, so his body would respond awkwardly as he moved about, not simply stiff like depicted in the movies. His limbs have literally been pieced together so the nerves wouldn't respond well, causing his gait to seem almost non-human.

Yet at the same time, the monster is afraid. He's angry, sometimes even filled with rage, and at other times feels lost and deserted. His emotions are basic and straight-forward.

I can think of no other actor who can bring true realism to the character of Frankenstein's monster, than Doug Jones. His ability to let his body show emotion is astounding. I truly hope he can someday bring his talents to the screen and personify the monster's angst, its rage, its plight and its terror to this classic tale.

  •   actordougjones Precious Rob, you make my heart sing a little! The FRANKENSTEIN project I speak of is Guillermo del Toro's adaptation of the book that has been in development at Universal since 2008. The artwork of Bernie Wrightson is what has inspired Guillermo's casting of me into the very emaciated version of the monster you suggest. It's been long enough now, that all I can do is hope! Hope with me!!! 5d
  •   rob.in.tn I'm hoping, @actordougjones! I've been hearing rumors (I guess that's the word) that Universal was "rebooting" their "classic monster series". Dracula came out, so I can only hope that Frankenstein is a "reboot" too! In "back engineering" the Frankenstein story ", I encounter one question: Does the monster have a soul? Since all his parts came from dead people, I can only presume all their souls left their bodies, and he is thus a soul-less shell.. Or is his "soul" an amalgam of all of their souls? With perhaps a bit of #multiplepersonality thrown in! Lol! I imagine the monster as fully cognizant, locked in the throes of debate of whether he has a soul. Asking himself that IF/WHEN he dies/is destroyed, will HIS "soul" go to Heaven, or is he condemned to Hell because of the actions of his abnormal brain's deeds when they were committed by the brain's "former owner"? I know! I think too much! Lol. Night, Doug. 5d

M'kay so I'm gonna take a break from watching (I'm still gonna read it) Soul Eater because it's really long and I've been lazy with it so in the meantime I'm gonna watch other animes so here is my plan:

Watch Free!
Watch Fruits Basket
Watch Tokyo Ghoul
Either return to Soul Eater or:
Watch Death Parade
Watch Attack on Titan
Watch Fullmetal Alchemist
Definitely return to Soul Eater!
-
I'm gonna go start Free!
