What about evangeline lilly as julie?

Did anyone ever see the shadow of the vampire. I haven't but dafoe could do a good vampire.

Tyrol from bsg as Owen? or is he too old?

Did anyone see "Over There"? I thought it was a good show about Iraq. And because it was good, of course no one watched it and it got canceled after one season. But the sergeant/guy in charge was pretty tough, with some weight training he could be pitt.

    The wife dragged me to see The Ugly Truth.

    It appears Gerard Butler can drop the accent, kinda.  But not well enough for my taste.  As such, while I do feel he has the perfect look and personality, I have to now count him out based on his voice.  :(

    Pfff.  Might as well just get Vin Diesel then.  Why settle for a knock off?

    Hmm I don't think i've seen any mention of Jason Statham as Owen Pit...?

    He might be a little too pretty, but you could fix that with some scar makeup.    Have him gain about 20-30 lbs for the role and he'd fit right in, once you get rid of the accent.


    And I can't believe no one's even mentioned BRUCE CAMPBELL as a cameo or supporting character!

    I think Campbell would make a great M (Milo or Machado).
    Or maybe Julie's dad (who I can't help but keep picturing as Gary Oldman as Sirius Black).

    I would have a hard time taking machado seriously if he was played by Campbell. It isn't that he can't play anything but cheesy, burn notice proves he actually can play a serious role, but it would distract me. I would always be thinking "It's a trick" when he goes for his axe, and "Give me some sugar, baby" when he's talking to the priestess.

     :rotfl  +10 if he says GIVE ME SOME SUGAR BABY to the disembodied priestess after she gets gooified.   :devillol

    I think Bruce Campbell could be great as the psychologist dude who has a heart attack. 

    Please not Jason Statham.  I love watching his movies but no.  He's a good toughie but he can't really act.  He kicks heads in quite entertainingly (see me love of CRANK.  And he can't drop the accent.  So no.

    How about Jason Matthew Smith from Star Trek? He is the "burly cadet" that starts a fight with Kirk in the bar. When I saw him, I thought he was a dead-ringer for a young Correia/Pitt.

    He does look like a good Owen, the question is: can he act?

    Some of the best movies have been animated versions.
    With the tremendous talent and capabilities of making them now, does a movie really need live actors?
    Especially since most actors are hypocrites about guns, bravery and American values.
    I vote for Owen Pitt to be portrayed by an animated character.

    I was thinking more like Sulu from the new star trek.

    I saw that movie again recently, and in the first scene on the Enterprise bridge when Pike agrees to go to the Romulans, there is Kumar in a yellow shirt, I think. Maybe blue.

    When I saw that it made me smile, kind of like how for a while Ben Affleck and Matt Damon were always getting jobs for the other in the movies they appeared in.

    MHI Cast: Youtube video from this site included.
    « Reply #220 on: October 30, 2009, 10:25:25 PM »
      Just putting this up ;)

    I hadn't seen it on previous youtube searches for Monster Hunter International, AND I've never seen it on the forum.

    What with the.....outbreak  :D  of MHI fic, I figured I should post it.



    Alot of the recomendations are spot on.

    My thoughts (As I hadn't seen the vid before ;)

    Owen: Good choice. Before I hadn't really seen anyone even close to that...Nathan Fillion maybe, but he's an old fart.

    Julie:  I agree on Jordana Brewster.  For some reason, I read the preview 7 chapters, and the first character into my head was her, and haven't been able to think of anyone else ;) dunno why, but it seems a perfect fit.

     Earl: Although a little young, I sorta figured Dylan Bruno (Colby from Numb3rs).  He fits the 30's era hero for some reason...

     Trip: I saw Mikhi as a candidate once, fitting and I didn't see anyone suitable to replace him.

    Grandpa SHackleford: Agreed on Eastwood.  Both old guys who can act real bad azz in a pinch.

    Milo: One guy who I never really found a true match for....I always figured maybe take a stereotypical biker, shave his ehad, clean him a little, then dye his beard red.

    Sam:  He is WAAAY to old, but a young Jesse Ventura. I keep getting the character "Blaine" from the movie Predator.  The guy who carried "Painless" the first 1/3 of the movie.   

    Darne and Grant: Good choices. 

    Myers: I always pictured Myers as Keith Carradine.   Another one who the moment he was mentioned the actor popped into my head, and that is "Who he is" in my mind.

    Franks:  Again possibly Dylan Bruno.  A young Adam Baldwin maybe, but not the current old version.    Basically anyone who played a Terminator character.

    Jaeger:   I always pictured him as Jeff Kober (A guy born in Montana...but so far he's only played villians).  A little old, but good enough for the role.

    Ray Shackleford:  Hugh Laurie, from House.   He's another "Straight into actor".

    Byreika:  I alwasy thoguht of him (The OLD version) as David Huddelstone, especially his "Jericho" appearance.

    Julies mom: Again, Jordana Brester, but more makeup.


    Question, when was the vid put up?  I've searched every few weeks for MHI, but this is the first time I saw it.

    I just combined a few different recommendations that had been kicked around in the first pages of this thread.  I studied theater and film in college and one of our professors favorite excercises in direction class was casting already made movies.  I really enjoyed casting, so I had a few favorites to throw into the mix.  See Sam Worthington.   :devillol

    Thanks for digging this up, I enjoyed seeing that again.

    Has anyone thought of Micky Rourke as Pitt or Earl? Micky's already done the big ugly guy in Sin City and The Wrestler, that's why I thought he'd be a good Pitt.

    Been reading MHN and MadOgre for a month or 2, this is my first post here though.
