That’s plain castism, and in broad day light, too!
I like the C# casts. They help me avoid run-time errors, such as those that I would get in VB6. Remember those?

And I could actually do this, never mind the fact that trying to cast George Clooney into a movie would cause my system to crash! Did I mention how much I hated VB6?
Just look at these poor ol’ moms, marching for casts:
