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.

      Not really "MHI-centric", but I think I saw the MCB lead team before they was fully organized ;D

    Predator 2 (first time I saw it), lo-and behold.  looks like Meyers and Franks.      Although a ridiculous movie, I sorta liked the government team, if they'd have made Garber (Adam Baldwin) a little meaner it woulda been a good match of the MCB team.    ;D

    I think most of the cast has been nailed down, except Holly.  The entire time reading the book i could only think of one chick...Tabrett Bethell.  Pretty much the only thing she has been in is "Legend of the Seeker", but she was great in it.  Khorne, help a brother out and post some pics of her i can't for the life of me figure out how.  A picture speaks volumes.  check it out

      Nah.   Hot women are nice, but there wouldn't be as much monster-butt-whupping going on  ;D     Or if there was, we'd all miss it by looking at the women  ;D

      Okay.  Seeing as how MHI just jumped another notch (Okay, I know, nothing official...but still better than 99% of the books published  :neener)  I think fresh opinions should be put forth  :hmm

      Okay, I'm onto my list:
    Owen Pitt:   again: No clue.
    Julie Shackleford:   Jordana Brewster....always clicked as being her for some reason.

    Trip Jones:  Jason Mamoa? (Ronan from SGA).  Ironically enough, LL Cool J from NCIS seems a decent choice, although he's got too good a gig to leave. 

    Holly Newcastle:  Cara from legend of the Seeker. Tabret Bethell.

    Earl Harbinger:    James Caan?  A little old, but he's who I visualize in the role...and he's sorta active for an old guy.   

    Sam Haven:   Muse Watson (Mike Franks from NCIS) is really striking me, except he's pretty old.   Sam Elliot?    Pretty old too but MIGHT...be able to pull it off.   Someone mentioned Ted Nugent...mebbe not bad...

    Milo Anderson:  Alan Tudyk?  Milo strikes me as being a "funny" role, and he seems to fit.

    Grant Jefferson:    Any slick, good looking actor.   Truthfully. the Grant and Jaeger roles could be interchangably used for actors.   One is just evil.Josh Duhamel would be good as one or the other.   

    Grandpa Shackleford:   Clint Eastwood?   

    Raymond Shackleford:    Jeff Kober.    Although I don't know how well He'd play loony characters.

    Agent Myers:   Mark Harmon from NCIS. 

    Agent Franks:   I got Adam Baldwin visualized in this role, but he's almost too old to fit.  :hmm  A good secondary would be Dylan Bruno.   He could be emotionless, cold, and look mean. 

    Susan:   Jordana Brewster. 

    Jaeger:    Any slick, good looking actor.   Truthfully. the Grant and Jaeger roles could be interchangably used for actors.   One is just evil.   Josh Duhamel would be good as one or the other.

    My pics:

    Owen: Sam Worthington, though I think a young Liev Schreiber could work....

    Julie: Jordana Brewster

    Trip: ????

    Holly: Tabret Bethell

    Albert Lee: ???? Maybe the dude that played Sulu in the new Star Trek Movie?

    Earl: Viggo Mortensen.

    Sam Haven: ???? Maybe Adam Baldwin?

    Milo: Alan Tudyk

    Grant: For some reason, I keep seeing Jeffery Donovan in the role.

    Grandpa Shakleford: Either Clint Eastwood or Robert Duval

    Agent Myers: Mark Harmon

    Agent Franks: Again, I like Adam Baldwin. Or maybe Thomas Jane?

    Ray Shackleford: ????

    Susan: Jordana Brewster with different make-up.

    Lord Machado: ???? Come to think of it, I can see Liev Schreiber here.

    Jaeger: Gotz Otto (Stamper from Tomorrow Never Dies)

    I like the Eastwood  idea but Duvall is oneof my all time favorites and has the sassyness and can play a Southerner like few others. My pick for Earl iwould be Scott Glenn but he is a bit old. How about Hugh Jackman since Earl never ages? It'd kinda be like his Wolverine role though albeit a wolfman this time.

    Owen is Bob Koherr. He plays bad guys or muscle on all sorts of TV shows and movies. I saw him in the recent Escape to Witch Mountain (hey I have  two wee boys ages 4 & 6 who love the Rock) as a knee breaker who is chasing after The Rock and I immediately thought of Owen Pitt.




    Franks could be played by The Rock's cousin and stunt stand-in Tanoai Reed:
