Saw The Day The Earth Stood Still trailer

Keanu as Klaatu is a bit troubling but it also features Jennifer Connelly and John Cleese! So I might be able to stand watching Keanu in this role. Michael Rennie puts me more in mind of a Peter Weller or John Hurt or even David Bowie.

John Cleese?

What exactly does he do, (oh wait, checks imdb) it looks like he'll be playing Dr. Barnhardt as opposed to Sam Jaffe who played him in the first one.  I never saw the first film, it is on my list though.

So tell me raj, does barnhardt seem like a pythonesque roll to you?  How did sam play it?

It's a straight dramatic role

I think Jaffe was blacklisted after that role. He played Doctor Zorba on Ben Casey.

You haven't seen the original?!?! It's on tv like all the time, man!

There are several references to Jesus in the original movie
