CoRD Movie: Storm of Shadows - Casting Call!

Post  Penelope on Thu Sep 24, 2009 10:53 pm

If this campaign were to be made into a movie, who would play (or do voice work: Kaber) for your character? Very Happy

First instinct is that this would be MUCH better Animated... or at least a good enough budget for massive CGI.

Seriously... Octo-bats Wink

Drawing a blank on my character... most of my casting choices are a decade or two behind...

But for Kaber I always imagine Micheal Dorn (Worf). Typcast.. but there you have it!

If we are going post humously, I think Jack Lemmon would be the best to do Eddick. I need someone older, small framed, and debonair.

I got it! Nicolas Cage! He's crazy enough to do it too!

Someone would have to impress the hell out of me big time if they wanted me to sign off on an animated film. I'm not overly keen on animated films because so few are realistically designed as far as characters.

I would hope they'd do something with CGI, however, if it were ever to be done.

And, in keeping with the purpose of this thread, I believe I'd probably just play myself in the role of "screenwriter". elephant

I say we have Brad Pitt play Elric, just for the hijinks and ensuing hilarity.

He also has the physique. It could work!

Yeah I can see George Clooney with a really long white goatee, playing Eddick. Nice! Especially with all the dancing that's been going on at the party! Laughing

For Ashara, I'm leaning toward Emmy Rossum or Anne Hathaway.

He's getting a little old to be Elric... Maybe a young one...

I would want to be there when they hand him the ears and say "you have to wear these!"

Ohh yes.

for eddick i would probably go Ian Holms to tell the truth, at least that's my first thought.

kaber, yes, Michael Dorn would work good for voice, or even Mickey Rourke (marv in sin city), or wait...got it!!! the best!!! RON PEARLMAN!!! slap some altered beast crossed with hellboy makeup on him and you gots KABER!!

Elric, that is a little trickier cause you need someone graceful and elvin like with some martial arts too (which makes some of the grace easy). first thought, go Mark Dacascos (crow television series), if going post, i'd pull Brandon Lee, why hold back. heck, even Adrian Paul would work in a pinch. all are talented and skilled martial artists. and could pull off the look too

okay, we go Christopher Pine. I am sure he has a little ear envy since Star Trek.

I actually think Emmy Rossum would be an awesome Ashara. That's an excellent call.

That's pretty much what he was based on. But I wouldn't want JCVD playing him in a movie... He's got the fighting moves... but acting skill up there with Keanu reaves...


Also... Edward norton as Therogeon? PERfect!

nah, i think you need someone who has a little more presence to play Ashara.

what pops into my mind, if you've ever seen her in anything else it would be easier to picture, is Jewel Staite. She's cute, can have attitude, and has a soft fun side too.

i've been outta the movie loop lately it feels like, thus i really can't think of the current stars, not a clue who a lot of these youngsters are anymore.

oh, and i will concede the George Clooney, that would be a good choice for Eddick.

Gwilly I like Renee, but sometimes I wonder if she would be able to keep up with the character. Gwilly might break her!

Adrian Paul crossed my mind a couple of times... Always liked Dacascos' Crow clown


For some reason I can picture Amy Adams as Gwilly.

For my part, I could actually picture Amy Adams playing a better Gwilly than Renee Z. The latter has a good pixie voice, I'll grant you, but to capture the character more, I thank the former would perform.

I couldn't see Jewel Stait as Ashara, however, I will concede I've only seen her as Kaylee. I still like Emma Rossum at that role, though I could picture a younger Rachel McAdams in the role, as well.

Like Clooney as Eddick. Great voice for the wise one, and definitely has the sense of humor to pull off the comedic aspect of the character's rather judicious use of metaphor.

Dorn or Pearlman as the voice of Kaber would be awesome. I think Dorn has the gruffer tone, however, so he'd have my vote.

Can you pick better than Edward Norton for Therogeon? I . . . don't . . . THINK SO!

Elric is near impossible. I believe he's almost have to be a no-name coming up with incredible martial arts talent (or at least someone who is willing to work hard enough that he can fake it extremely well). He's gotta look relatively young, yet be built . . . to go with the young actors I've seen who may stand a chance here, I'd say either Christopher Pike, or a clean-shaven Channing Tatum.

Ian McKellen would be my choice to play Josiah (for obvious reasons).

I'd also pull for someone like Karl Urban or Hugh Jackman to play Dukarthius for the voice talent alone. (Chances are, the character would be CGI because of the four arms.)

John Rhys-Davies could easily pull off the Book Merchant, Barant, and would bring instant credibility to the film!

Warwick Davis to play Sornie! I'd just love to give the poor guy a paycheck!

see i still don't see Emma Rossum as Ashara. granted i've only seen her in phantom, but while she's cute and can sing, she doesn't have slight edge and commanding presence that Jewel can pull off. (she actually kinda played a b**ch in a couple of episodes of Wonderfalls, and plays a doc in Stargate: Atlantis) granted, they both have the softness and understanding, but my vote is still for Jewel.

Come on! we get a Firefly cast member working on this! don't blow it!

Ron Glass could play Eddick, it would also help us pass the affirmative action laws!
