    eh I think Jordana Brewster is a better choice.   :devillol

    Yeah, I deserved that. Like I said, I don't normally watch newer TV shows and movies, so I'm at least 20 years behind everyone else.

    So, yeah, I could see Summer Glau as Julie, though Jordana Brewster seems to fit the image Larry had of her perfectly.

    Popularity doesn't mesh with the Character fit.  I can't see Summer as Julie.  Julie is tall, strong... a real presence.  Summer is short, skinny, and doesn't look like someone who would punch you in the throat if you eyeball her jubblies.  Julie does.  And then Mozambique you.  Summer isn't.  Summer is a Dancer.  She's a ballerina that made it into acting.   Julie grew up killing monsters.  Julie needs to be like Wonder Woman in Tactical Gear.   Like Linda Carter in Ballistic Nylon with a 12 gauge.    You should instantly want to both shag her... and run from her at the same time.
    Sorry Larry... that's just the way I read the character.

    Glau could play the evil witch doctor woman (sorry can't remember her name and I'm at school). I could picture Glau playing that role well if she got a bit of a tan lol. On the other hand, Glau isn't exactly the sexy/seductive type either, shes more of the cute/goofy type.

    Agent Myers - Mark Harmon
    Agent Franks - Thomas Jane

    Mm.  Those aren't bad picks right there.

    Owen Pitt - Sam Worthington - Glad we agree  :devillol
    Julie - Jordana Brewster - She's hot I'm in
    Earl Harbringer - Hugh Jackman - nah...
    Sam Haven - Tom Selleck - I'm a fan of Tom Selleck but I though Sam is a bit younger more kick A still...
    Grant Jefferson - Jeffery Donovan - HUH?  Na I still gotta go with Ryan Phillipe
    Agent Myers - Mark Harmon - GREAT PICK
    Agent Franks - Thomas Jane - GOOD PICK I'm partial to Ray Stevenson or Lieve Schreiber
    Holly - Kelli Garner - I can honestly say I don't know who this is  ???  um.  In her pics I don't think she could pull off the damaged goods look
    Milo - Edward Norton - HUH?  Sorry Milo?  No he needs to be a big contented guy.  Norton is great but not for Milo...
    Trip - Taye Diggs - What T Said...
    Jaeger - Gotz Otto - um?  IDK who this is...  Mads Mikkelsen would rock it though
    Machado - Robert Downey Jr. - I know he's a golden boy right now but no...  Machado needs to be mariusz pudzianowski
    Grandpa Shackleford - Clint Eastwood
    Dorcas - Betty White (please don't laugh) - or Kathy Bates.  I could go with that.

    3 very important questions:

    1. Who plays Julie's Dad, RAY (I think thats his name)? Hugh Laurie? 
    2. Who plays the little Jewish Hunter Dude in Owen's Head? Allan Corduner maybe? Tomas Arana?
    3. What movies does Taye Diggs get his face cut off in?  This is important!  :devillol

    The age part doesn't seem like a huge problem to me for most of the characters. Not only could proper make-up cause actors to look a lot younger, most of them haven't really had an age specified. Sam was described only as looking somewhat similar to Kenny's dad from south park, which would be mid-30s to his 40s, probably, when is the book set again? Seems like if it is in 2008, the younger characters that were in the old MHI wouldn't have even been out of highschool for the Christmas party unless they are in their mid 30s (assuming Sam even finished high school).

    Maybe I'm just a bad judge of age, but until someone's hair starts going thin and grey, their skin wrinkles, or they get liver spots, I can't tell how old someone is after their mid to late 20s.

    Holly - Kelli Garner - I can honestly say I don't know who this is  ???  um.  In her pics I don't think she could pull off the damaged goods look

    Honestly, neither do I. Just saw her picture online and said "Meh, whatever." Dunno to many modern actresses.

    Jaeger - Gotz Otto - um?  IDK who this is...  Mads Mikkelsen would rock it though

    Gotz Otto played Stamper in Tomorrow Never Dies.

    3. What movies does Taye Diggs get his face cut off in?  This is important!  :devillol

    1. Yeah, I could see Hugh Laurie.
    2. Dunno who either of those are.
    3. Yes, you do need to see it again.
