Re: Ron Perlman as Owen Pitt

Rourke is a lot of fun to watch on screen, loved him in Sin City.  But honestly he's got too much age for Owen, think late 20's to early 30's.  And he's almost to beefy for Earl.  At least thats what I saw in my mind.  He might make a good Franks depending on Franks age.  I can't seem to recall it for some reason.

    Monster Hunter International - The Movie...who would you cast...
    « Reply #228 on: June 16, 2010, 09:52:41 AM »
    Finally got the time to burn through this book, nice job Larry, other than a few minor things I really enjoyed it....not too over the top on the gun stuff and loved the way all of the pieces came together at the the end.  The entire time I was reading it I kept seeing the character of Earl Harbinger played out in my head by Willem Dafoe...not to big of a stretch for him considering some of his other roles....but then I started to make a list of characters and who I would cast as there actors if this thing went to film..  The hardest to come up with was that of Owen himself...kind of had Vin Diesel in mind but he is way older than the character in the book in real life, kind of hard to think of someone with the physical build to match the book in the age range that is currently around.

    Anyway, here is my list of actors...feel free to add or change as you see fit...this could be fun...

    1.  Owen Pitt:  ???
    2. Julie Shackelford: Megan Fox
    3: Earl Harbinger: Willem Dafoe
    4: Sam: ???
    5:  Milo: David Caruso
    6: Trip: Mecad Brooks (Eggs from True Blood)
    7: Holly:  ???
    8: Lee:  ???
    9. Lord Machado/CO:  Javier Bardem
    10. Ray Shackelford:  Sam Neil
    11. Susan Shackelfor: Michell Forbes
    12. Jaeger: Jonathan Rys Meyers
    13. Thrall: Vin Diesel

    I'm liking Javier Bardem for Machado.  Sam Neill strikes me pretty well as Ray too.

    Javier Bardem WOULD be a good Lord Machado.  And I can support Sam Niell for Ray.  That there's not a bad pick, although I think that Hugh Laurie or Willem Dafoe would work just as well.  Lot of crazy in Hollywood.

    I still picture Ray as Gary Oldman.

    I don't know why but he just seems right.

    I like most of the list, except for Megan Fox as Julie. From what I've seen, Fox has a tendency to phone her roles in. Plus, she isn't really that hot anyway.

    Megan Fox is like Taye Diggs (see George's comments) and should be kicked out of Hollywood and back to the streetcorner she belongs at with her radiation created scary mutant thumbs and her bulls___ personality.

    I agree.  He could probably play every character and I'd still watch it.

    Meh. I just don't like the fact that there seems to be a "This Space For Rent" sign between her ears. Seriously, I was watching Transformers the other day, and the whole time her eyes had this vacant, gears-not-turning look.

    scary-mutant thumbs? Wha...?

    If Megan Fox made an appearance I would not see the movie.

    David Caruso and Vin Diesel also significantly lower the chances I'd pay to see it.

    I'm shameless enough that I would see an MHI movie no matter who was in it, but yeah those actors would really ruin it for me.

    David Caruso is the William Shatner of his generation.  Only unlike Shat - he doesn't know it...  Oh and Shat was actually good sometimes.

    Whoever plays Julie would need to be a gun gal... or at least they would need to train the crap out of her for at least 18 months.

      Megan Fox...eh..First: Who cares about her thumbs? I'm pretty sure that's not what I'd be paying attention to if I was that close to her  ::)    Regardless, not a good actress for Julie (My opinion, sorry) saw her in Transformers and on something else (name escapes me), and....I can't believe she got into either role.   

    Anyway: In addition to my list on page 8: (Note: No thumbnails attached, computer's super slow).

    Lee: Tim Kang, who plays Cho on the Mentalist.

    Julie and Julie's mom: No offence, I said it before: But I watched Chuck on DVD again....Jordana Brewster is made for the role....will need some acting skills with a gun probably...But if a MHI movie is made half the budget should be ensuring that Adam Baldwin (cram him in somewhere) and Jordana Brewster are in it  ;D   Although Davalos does look like a decent choice.

    Trip: No clue, Mechad Brooks looks like a good choice.

    Holly: If she wasn't such a awfull friggin actress (And getting older) Jenny Mccarthy would be okay.  As it stands, I'd go with Amanda Righetti, also from the Mentalist TV series.   

    Milo:...Caruso...I dunno. I dislike his CSI character, although he seems like a decent guy...I just don't know if he could get loony enough for Milo's role.....

    Alan Tudyk as Skippy.....Skippy will probably be Edited in anyway, Tudyk's mannerisms,etc. would be a good "base" for him.
