Oops. They are all probably kicking themselves now.
Where'd you see this?
Not saying it's not true, just shocked so many wouldn't jump at chance to work with AC.
But, I'm glad as hell they didn't go with the above list. It's weird bc I'm not a Bullock fan, but her age, demeanor or whatever just seems to fit more in line with a doctor selected for a special mission simply based on her professional expertise being an asset to NASA.
