     :doh oops. Heh, heh, yeah, he has been mentioned before...

    *Raptor takes a moment to remove his shoe from his mouth*

    I still think he'd make a pretty good Ray IV, though.

    He was the big Russian in the Thomas Jane Punisher, yeah?
    I beieve you're thinking of Kevin "Big Sexy" Nash. But hey, he's big, he's tough, he's a somewhat actor.

    Hey WTA followers, I think we've been hacked.
    Last night on "Scyfi" channel was a really bad movie "Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer".
      "Jack, a plumber and part time student, becomes a 'Monster Slayer' when his science teacher becomes a werewolf."
    And I mean it was realllly bad.

    Has anybody seen the guy playing Conan in the remake?  Apparently he's supposed to be a decent actor.

    http://dixonverse.net/board3/index.php?topic=3043.0

    He's 6'4", big, give him a haircut and scar him up...  Owen is a Serbo-Polynesian with a neanderthal forehead. What do you think?

    I want proof the guy can act.  The problem that I've seen all he's done thus far is Soaps and stargate.  So soaps...

      I thought of Ronan/Mamoa.   Just Stargate, but seems to be a "decent" actor in that role compared to some of the SGA cast. 

    But ain't he a little old to play Owen? 

    One thing I was gonna mention (Being a geek, I notice small stuff like this). 

    SGA had a minor actress, Sharon Taylor.  Played a kick-ass gate technician who was in my opinion: better than Teyla by a loong shot and matched Ronan.  Real life has a black belt in kick-boxing.   Anyway: For the small amount of screen time, seemed like someone who should be included in MHI somewhere.

    Just read MHI again (this must be the 10th time), and now for reasons I can't explain, I'm visualizing Alan Tudyk as Milo.

    He would be good with long hair and a beard. We could just find jobs for all the 'Firefly' actors.

    I think he picks up the right kind of humor.  He can bulk up for it.

    NOPE.  Sorry mate, but think the build of a Shane Carwin or an NFL linebacker.  Not a wimpy bulked up actor.  Not even a years worth of the 300 workout PLUS HGH and you STILL don't have someone the right look.

    Hmm... you're probably right, but it'd take the right kind of linebacker to hit Earl's tone.

    From MHI (emphasis added):
    Quote
    There was a knock on the door. It must have just been a mere courtesy knock because whoever it was immediately barged in. Franks barely had time to hide his Glock under an issue of Martha Stewart Living.

    The man was of average height and lean, with short-cropped, sandy blond hair, probably in his mid-forties. With no really remarkable features, he was not a memorable-looking guy, but emanated an old-school toughness when he strutted into the room, an attitude like a Bogart or a Cagney from the golden age of movies. A cigarette hung lazily from the corner of his mouth in clear violation of hospital rules.

    I don't think a werewolf needs to be all that huge to have superhuman strength.

    I was a little confused, but on thinking about it I think you're still right about Mal.
    Viggo could be an OK Earl, maybe.  I don't know...he seems just so serious.  Earl does not strike me as a serious person most of the time.

    regarding Viggo as Earl - go check out Apalloosa, Hidalgo and A history of Violence.  These strike me as very adaptable with the Earl role.  I'm also waiting on Eastern Promises from Netflix right now and just watched The Road last night.  Viggo strikes me as an actor of incredible range, comparable to Russell Crowe, Christian Bale, Robert Downey Jr. and Edward Norton easily.
