    Here's Nathan Jones in "Troy"



    North CarolinaBe without fear in the face of thine enemies.
    Be brave and upright that God may love thee.
    Speak the truth always even if it leads to thy death.
    Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong.
    That is thine oath.

    How about Eliza Dushku as Julie?

    I prefer Jamie-Lynn Sigler over Eliza Dushku.

    If he can speak well, and is willing to let himself get a little doughy, he might work as Owen.\

    My vote is Dushku.

    Owen acts like a puppy. A big puppy with a gun, but still, not like a grown up of any kind. A lot of the stuff he says and does is too juvenile for someone over the age of thirty. So I do think it has to be a kid playing him. Height doesn't matter. Pearlman played Hellboy, who is supposed to be seven feet tall. No sane producer will ever try to cast a big wrestler or football player in any role. They did that once with Sabertooth in the X men and it really blew. Only actors belong in films. Acting is a prety difficult thing to do. Watch any pilot episode, and you see that its the strength of the acting that holds up even the action scenes. Not the props, or the special effects. Besides, in a movie they could make any changes they want to. They would have to make Owen less of a jealous ass, so most people could like him, I suppose. So, a kid. Pretty large, but not necessarily over 6' feet. As for Julie, I see her as being less attractive then Eliza Dushku. Eliza Dushku is very sensual. Maybe Jayme Lin Sigler would be perfect. She is beautiful to Owen, but I doubt she is really a striking beauty. I can't think of a young actor to fit Owen, most of them are too attractive, and too confident, somehow. Pearlman is too old, and too confident.

    Well, Owen IS confident, in his training, in his team, in his equipment (I'd think in that order), so why not casting a "confident" actor?

    Clever choice for Harbinger IMHO would be someone like Tom Seleck.

      Tom Selleck never entered my mind, but he really would be a good choice......

    I think Mister Correia should send Selleck a signed copy of MHI.....and say "Dang I think you'd be a good character for that guy"..... ;D

    Selleck'd be a good addition, pro-gun, probably enjoy the role  :shrug

    You know, Selleck never crossed my mind either, but thinking back to some of his performances, especially in Quigley Down Under, Crossfire Trail, and that one season of the TV series Las Vegas  :hide  ... I think he'd be an awesome Harbinger.

    And Larry, I second the idea of sending Mr. Selleck a personalized signed copy of MHI with a nice note enclosed.

    I've not seen any of his recent stuff but he was pretty hard and remorseless in Last Stand at Sabre River.
    I loved that movie. He's one of my favorite actors as well.

    Hugo Weaving is a good one too.

    Alternately, he could be Jon Voight or Brian Cox.

    The important thing is that you can really hate him.

    When I was reading MHI... Meyers WAS Agent Smith.
    He was one of the few that I instantly assigned a known person to the role.

    As if we needed another suggestion (and he's probably been mentioned before) but what about James Caan as Earl?

    And how about either Tom Hardy or Joel Edgerton (the two brothers from the new Warrior movie) as Owen. They're both relatively big, looks like both can act, and they've both been trained to fight.

    Yep, I mentioned him.  Caan has old school toughness.....only problem is he's sorta like a few of our other choices, a bit past "used by" date.   Good actor, but a bit old for their intended role.

    Then again....Earl's most physical stuff is in werewolf form  :hmm
