    Okay, Erica Cerra is amazing looking.   She might make a good Julie... But Julie is tall and strong... Erica, as attractive as she is, looks too delicate, too easily wrecked.  She's very wreckable.

    Hahahahaha! I never saw "Due Date" but I loved him in "Hangover" though. I know a guy, an undercover narcotics investigator, who acts just like that character as part of his cover. The thugs think he's done too many of the pills he's buying. I'm not sure its all an act.

    You must not have seen Erica Cerra as Jo Lupo the a$$ kickin deputy/head of security on Eureka if you think she's wreckable.

    Umm... there are other meanings to 'wreckable' than 'able to be wrecked'...

    Julie: Serinda Swan
    Earl: Ron Pearlman (he's too old to be Pitt)

    Those are the only ones that appear to me on screen as the characters do in my head.

    I've started hearing this song on the radio, and it raised MHI flags in my head immediately. Needs to be in the movie, with the Orcs headbanging. Maybe to cover a monster killin' montage.

    I'm not sure who (or what) he should play, but there's got to be a role in MHI for this guy:

    Assuming he can act (since he appears to be a boxer, I'd say that's a huge assumption)

    1. Skippy
    2. Franks
    3. Owen

    in that order.  Actually, if he can act (and speak without a massive Russian accent) he might almost be perfect for Owen - huge and ugly.

    Okay, two things:

    1) If that guy's not a shoe-in for Franks, there's something wrong.

    2) If you're casting him as your main character, the show'll bomb - needs more eye candy. From your descriptions, I know it runs counter to Larry's character, but if Owen isn't at least somewhat fun for the ladies to look at, the show will never get off the ground.  He's *too* big, too dangerous looking to make a sympathetic hero - you'll never really feel like he's in trouble.

    Okay, three things -

    3) Larry named something bigger and uglier than that dude "Skippy"?!?

    That's not right. *grin* I like it.

    +1 on Franks IF he could ditch the Rus accent tho' that might be explainable since the original creation was of German / East European "parts."

    Same here. I pictured him and his bro as stocky but man sized. He can't be huge huge if he fits in a helo cockpit. At least not freakishly big like that Russian.

    With the right producer, I'm sure that they could find a suitable match to all the characters in the books. Those characters are based on Hollywood movie stereotypes, after all.

      I's thinking again (A bad thing, trust me  :D).

      For Earl, I hadn't imagined him quite so....redneckish, however MH:Alpha, definately has a hardcore redneck slant (not offensive, beinga  redneck ain't bad).

    This guy: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001344/   Gregg Henry, really looks like what I think Earl would, and what I've seen of him (A bad guy trucker on The Good Guys, and the Sheriff of Paradiso on Firefly), I think he'd be okay character-wise.  Not a hugely known actor, but does a decent job.

    And for Myers.....How about Richard Dean Anderson?  Guy's just annoying enough, whiny enough, and is getting old enough now that he might fit :hmm

    I think that Henry guy could do a decent job as Earl, but RDA as Myers? I dunno. Myers never struck me as being annoying (aside from his ringtone) or whiny. He seems like more of a hardass, and I don't think RDA could pull that off.
