NEW GAME: Casting Director

#1 Post by mounteenbose » 30 May 2003, 13:06

Hey I thought I'd start a new game here called "casting director." I haven't seen it on here so let's give it a try. I will select a certain character from something, novel, comic, old movie to be remade. Then you will select actors to fill that role. Except I work just like a regular casting director as in i have a budget, so you want to get the best name actor who wouldn't be to expensive. At the end I'll select who will win the role, based on expense, on what scale the actor or actress is, and there past experience.

With every entry you must submit a picture along with examples of their work just like a regular casting director. AND ANY ACTOR OR ACTRESS CAN ONLY BE SUBMITTED ONCE, SO ONCE YOU SEE AN ACTOR POSTED FOR A CERTAIN ROLL YOU CAN'T POST THEM AGAIN.


OK, ready to get started. As you may know a third sequel to the x-men franchise. The producers are looking to add the character of gambit to the next sequel. Your mission is to fin dthe perfect actor for the role. I look forward to see who you come up with.

If you are unfamiliar with character here is a picture and a link for more info.

What about Guy Pearce? Acted in such filmwise favorites as L.A. Confidential, and Memento, and a movie I like a lot The Count of Monte Cristo

I think Guy would be a great choice. Damn, why didn't I think of that. Another one who'd do a good Gambit is James Marsden, has the cheekbones for it, but, dammit, he's already Cyclops.

However, budget in mind, my suggestion is James Marsters (Spike from Buffy) - dye his hair of course! Not sure he'd do the accent well, i mean, just look at his Billy Idol inspired version of English!

Is this guy a good guy or a bad guy.

Yeah. Nightcrawler was the man but Pyro was a bit more wild. Also why was Nightcrawler German? I have nothing against Germans there just didn't seem to be any point to him being German.

Jason Statham. Good Choice. You've just watched Snatch haven't you?

Bill Murray. He'd bring something special to the role.

How about Rufus Sewell? Handsome, dark, brooding, and a damn fine actor to boot.

Speaking of TV actors (whom I assuming would come cheap) how about David Boreanaz. I'm not sure on his acting credentials (Angel's not my thing) but I think he has the right look.

Apart from that, isn't Gambit French? Toto, Antoine, any French candidates so they don't have to make a bad attempt at an accent.

PS - Good idea for a game. Creative thinking and all that.
Lionel Hutz, aka Miguel Sanchez, aka Dr. Nguyen van Thoc, was paid $8 for his 32 hours of babysitting.

He was glad to get it.

He is Cajun French... so it's a Louisiana accent... If you remember that Van Damm flick Hard Hunted? Was that the one where they were hunting homeless people? Van Damme was cajun but his uncle (Wilford Brimley) Had the thick cajun accent.

I pray to everything holy that you are kidding? If he was cast as gambit, I would have to stab my eyes out and hope that he could pull off the accent.

Yeah he is Cajun. It was Hard Target. I actually really like that film, if only for the scene where theres JCVD at the top of a hill, with a motorbike, a van with baddies hanging out the side shooting machine guns tearing towards him. He starts driving down the hill towards them, gets up, STANDS on the seat, shoots the baddies, and just as the van is about to hit the bike, jumps, BGI explosion, he clears it, rolls from his jump and turns around, gun pointed, just in case. Fantastic. As over-the-top as Mr. Woo gets!

That is amongst my Van Damme collection :oops: and is definitely one of the best (though to be fair, that's not a hard job is it!)

Btw, Alan Cumming did quite well in speaking german, I mean, you could hear, that he is obviously no native speaker, but it could have been worse :D

Timecop - really rather good IMHO, lots of nice stunts
Universal Soldier - Not Big, Not Clever, but what do you expect from Devlin + Emerich, but still has a certain charm
Kickboxer - Good for a laff
Cyborg - alright, but give me Angelina Jolie anyday!
Double Impact - Funny Enough
The Quest - run screaming, stay the hell away from this film

Bloodsport (I liked it)
Double Impact (complete pants apart from the neck breaking)
AWOL (Lionheart)(not bad - we like pit fighting type stuff)
Death Warrant (like it and Patrick Kilpatrick as Sandman was uber-cool)
Nowhere to Run (can't knock a film with the gorgeous Roseanna Arqueete in it)
Double Team (bigger pants than Double Impact)
