  • Who do you think was a better live-action Shaggy and why?

    • I think Nick Palatas was the better Shaggy- hands down.

      1. He gave so much emotion to the role, whereas Lillard stuck to being all-funny with only a few moments of genuine emotion. While Nick was also hilarious in the role, he balanced it out with serious moments.

      2. He does a better Shaggy voice. Lillard gave his own spin to it, but my preference is Nick’s voice and how he stayed true to the original.

      3. HE CAN SING!

    • I think Lillard gave a lot of heart to the role. While Palatas was more realistic in the first. He was okay and funny in the second one, but the film as a whole was a complete mess in an attempt to just have a cartoon film in live-action form, which is all well and good, but not when you throw in the romance and everything. It misses the whole point. Also, the all the depth and realness of the first one was dropped.

    • Lillard shaped himself after Kasem's image from the og days

    • Which is why he isn't realistic, and those films aren't realistic because their are REAL monsters, which goes against the purpose: teenagers debunking the supernatural

      True, Lillard gave a lot of heart to the role; But I feel like Nick was able to do that as well and to the next level. You could tell that Lillard was giving his all, but there weren't a lot of times where I felt I could connect with the character. For me, that's something I look for in an actor. The ability to put the audience in the character's shoes.

      I think the romance in the film allowed Nick to showcase more of a wide range as an actor. When I think of "romantic roles" I think of the typical Cassanova, usually a dashing hero. Shaggy is obviously not that. I think Nick did a good job of putting a "Shaggy spin" on the scenario. Instead of being a dashing hero, he was more goofy and didn't know how to act in the romantic situations. In some regards, this is more human than the stereotypical romantic role. It's one thing to play a character well, it's another thing to put them in an abnormal scenario and still make them relatable and human.

    • Remember, Lillard himself said that he was really "in" to the role. At the time, he wasn't putting his full effort into it, and if he was, I think he would've been a lot better. Also, Lillard looks more like Shaggy to me, they didn't even dye Palatas' hair to match his cartoon counterpart. Also, that movie was terrible. Scooby-Doo was pretty good in my opinion, I can't say anything about Scooby-Doo 2 , since that was pretty bad, but the original Scooby-Doo was great! Plus, he was the actual Shaggy at the time! Even though he wasn't putting his all into it, you could definitly tell he had a better voice. I do have to agree that Palatas gave more heart, and the "heart" that Lillard gave was pretty terrible, but I've never liked any relationships Shaggy was ever in anyways. The character shouldn't be in romantic relationships, unless it's going to be a fact in all of the shows and movies and stuff, like if his relationship with Velma in MI stay consistant.

    • In my opinion, Scooby-Doo 2 wasn't good, but the best part is the costumes in the Coolsonian
