As the title says, name an actor who would be perfect for a character or part in a movie. 

 

My example is a David Bowie biopic staring Michael Fassbender as David Bowie.

Zachary Quinto as George Lucas in a biopic.

Patrick Stewart as Darth Plagueis.

Summer Glau as Jaina Solo.

Sorry, can't think outside of Star Wars at the moment.

If/when they remake Harry Potter, both my partner and I are convinced Adam Drive would be perfect for Snape

Who was it here who said Vincent Price for Doctor Strange the last time we did this? That would have been fun to see.

That would be cool.  I can't think of anyone else who would be better

 

 

Jack Black as Meat Loaf

Epic!  

 

 

Zachary Quinto as George Lucas in a biopic.

Patrick Stewart as Darth Plagueis.

Summer Glau as Jaina Solo.

The first and third choices would interesting and I like them.  Patrick Stewart in Star Wars would be interesting.  He could pull off a sith lord pretty well, like he did with Ahab.  But I think he would be better as a Jedi Master.

He would be great for that.  Missed opportunity for these prequels to Harry Potter to have Driver as Young Snape.  

 

Sorry, I just know of Harry Potter.  I don't know the lore very well, but I know who Snape is.

Don't know how that would exactly work.  Price died in I think 1991.  But he would have definitely been a good choice if they cast him instead of Barney Miller in the 1970s!

I'm racking my brain on who would be a good MCU Wolverine. Ideas?

Tom Hardy, but he's already Venom.

 

Joel Edgerton would kill it.

The "Fantastic Beasts" movies take place before Snape was even born. Severus was born in 1960 and the movies seem to be building up to the famous Dumbleore-Grindlewald dual which took place in 1945.

Tom Hardy could easily pull that off.  Not to knowledgeable about Joel Edgerton beyond being Uncle Owen.  Wolverine is supposed to be like 5'3".  I think the type of actor  I would like to see is a short muscular guy, like the comics. Or at least CGI said actor to look short.  I think  I like Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. He's done a great job, but he's also a pretty tall dude.

Joe Rogan with stick on hair as Wolverine. Holy crap would he kill it in the fight scenes, plus he has the physique, plus I don't think he's particularly tall either (Google says 5'7").

I always thought Stephen Colbert would make a great replacement for RDJ as Tony Stark.  He's already got a lot of the mannerisms.  Lose the glasses and put some facial on him and I think he could pul it off.

Put on your suspension of disbelief hats and imagine Disney was going to remake and improve the PT and all the actors were willing to return. Would you want them all to reprise their roles or would you want a whole new cast? I say Ewan McGregor stays for sure. He was one of the best parts of the PT and him being older now puts him closer to Guiness' age in the OT anyway.

We had this thread years back-- how would you cast SW if they had been made chronologically?

So the PT in the late 70s early 80s, and the OT in the late 90s, early 2000s

I'd say Natalie Portman should stay as Padme, she resembles young Carrie Fisher enough for it to work, plus she's old enough now for it to work too, but then you'd run in to making the age gap even worse if you have Anakin as a kid. If he's older, the argument that Yoda throws out about him being too old would be more relevant, so having a recast Anakin is probably a good idea - having him 18 in the TPM reboot would be a big improvement. Having said that, Hayden's portrayal of Anakin was so well done, it feels disrespectful to recast him but not Natalie or Ewan. You'd really need to recast all of them to avoid that.

Don't blame the actor for a bad script and worse directing. He did a good job with what he had

Im not going to hijack this thread to be about whether or not Hayden did a good job in the PT. We have an entire Star Wars forum for it.

Zac Efron as Superman. Hes got the general look, hes buff, and he still has that All-American nice guy demeanor.
