After having finally watched Justified, I have come to the realization that Timothy Olyphant has to be in there somewhere. Maybe as Grant?

 Well he's a little uglier than me but me might be a good standin...

Of course he'll need grooming to reach my level of awesomeness  :neener

Anywho: looks pretty young for being 41..

Olyphant would be a good choice...but he is in his 30's and Grant would of been maybe his mid - late 20's in the book. I think part of the casting issue is that the characters in the book are younger than the actors we have suggested to play as some of the characters....but I guess that is what the screen writers get paid for...

Timothy Olyphant is 42.

I like him, but I'm not sure any part would be good for him.

He might be good for a certain someone in the second film.

I've got an idea how about Hollywood finds some new blood and stops reusing all the same tired old actors.

moose, how many actors do you want?  What constitutes new blood?  indie films?  horrible garbage B-movies?  foreign movies?  Half the actors listed in the first 10 pages of this thread are part actors, bit actors or indie actors.

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

Remeber Caruso as the Irish Gang leader in Hill Street Blues? Even then he couldn't act. No way I want to see him in our MHI movie.

I always pictured Adam Savage from Mythbusters as Milo.  Red hair, mad scientist.  Just seemed to fit, although I know Savage is an FX guy and not an actor.

actually I was envisioning Caruso more as in Proof of Life...somewhat good flick even if they had Russel Crow take out a sentry with the knife from his gerber tool...

What's wrong with that?  Thin narrow blade, compact, strong, versatile.  Seemed like a good choice if you can only bring a light load of gear.

 Okay we've got to get into SERIOUS character assignments here:

  WHO is going to be Agent Franks?   Seriously, I liked him in the first book, and in MHV he totally kicked ass and.....well..I don't think he ever got around to taking names.

    My #1 Choice:  Paul Telfer.  A little bit pretty boy looking, but from his NCIS appearances, can be made into a pretty badass looking dude.     Note: if his acting skills are okay (I don't know) also a decent choice for Owen.

   #2. Choice. Adam Baldwin could still do the role.   He's somewhat out of shape (rumors say bad back injuries?), but nothing too bad, stunt doubles,etc. could work.    After all: Franks is basically the badass version of Jayne in a suit.

Goran Visnjic of ER fame?



He'd have to wash out his Croatian accent, but fortunately Franks doesn't talk much.

Or... :hmm  maybe he wouldn't.

I could see Gotz Otto as Franks, or maybe Jaeger. Anyone else remember Herr Stamper from Tomorrow Never Dies?

That's the only decent picture of him I could find. I'll change it if I can find a better one.

Nope. I think that was some WWE star or something.

*Time passes as Raptor checks Wikipedia...*

Yeah, it was Kevin Nash. He's with the TNA, but close enough... and I could see him as Franks too. Still like Gotz Otto as Jaeger, though. He's German, so we won't have to worry about the accent.

My mistake.

For the record, the photo I posted above is Götz Otto.

 Just posting this: http://blog.robballen.com/2010/06/07/p4122-casting-call-for-monster-hunter-international.post

 I decided to google Monster Hunter International Cast and came up with it  ;D

A few things from it:

One thing mentioned:  Christina Hendricks.....wouldn't be a bad choice for Holly....

And Jamie presley as the Elf queen....Already skilled in the trailer trash department...

And how come no one's mentioned Bruce Campbell? He'd be a great Ray Shackleford IV (Julie's dad), and he's already got a lot of monster hunting on his resume.
