Ben: so far, i’m doing a pretty good job of not picturing the actors when i read the books [the Harry Potter books, which Ben has only recently begun reading]
Allen: That’s difficult. It’s commendable you’re holding out. :)
Ben: alan rickman is tough to displace
Ben: though if i try really hard to forget he’s involved, then in my head snape looks an awful lot like doc cochran :-)
Allen: Now THAT would’ve been some casting.
Allen: Damn them and their British bias!
Allen: So does Snape sound like Doc Cochran when you read? “Harry F!%ing Potter, you co%&!@&er, who the f&!k do you think you are?”
Ben: great, now i have an image of him mixing up anti-crotchrot potions for all the school whores
