Yeah Earl is old in years but doesn't really look old due to the lycanthropy slowing the aging process kinda like Wolverine. Now if he wasn't already typecast as Wolverine, Hugh Jackman would be great as Earl.

    Dick Clark just had a remarkably non-linear aging curve. He didn't appear to age for years, and then he morphed into The Crypt Keeper over night.

    Lord Machado? But isn't he described as being somewhat short? Nah, but I do think Conan (an appropriate name if there ever was one) could definitely pull off Franks.

      Gonna add in a couple for MH:Alpha.

     Heather Kerkonen:  Jamie Luner.  DEFINATELY.   I would add an image but I couldn't find one that I personally thought fit her.   She played a deputy on an old, cancelled TV series called 10-8.    In my opinion, while not a super-convincing show, she did portray a deputy quite well.   Alot of women don't "Feel" like they are cops, she did.   She's also a redhead, hot, and about the right age.   
     
    Stark:   Dean Norris.  He plays a good weaselly, beauracratic character....Except I don't know if he could ever pull off tough....

    Just thought I'd throw in my two cents...

    Owen ==> Ray Stevenson (think "Punisher: Warzone"...may need makeup to appear a little younger)
    Julie ==> Erica Cerra (good choice because she looks like a slightly less prettier version of the actress that plays her mother)
    Earl ==> Kurt Russell (think Stargate, Soldier, and even Grindhouse)
    Holly ==> Heather Graham
    Lee ==> John Cho
    Trip ==> Don Cheadle
    Grant ==> Zen Gesner
    Milo ==> Woody Harrelson (think 2012 as far as looks)
    Sam ==> Sam Elliot (originally I was thinking Jesse Ventura, but he's looking pretty bad these days)
    The Boss ==> Clint Eastwood (sadly, Charlton Heston is no longer availble...)
    Dorcas ==> Betty White (who else?!)
    Ray ==> Jeff Bridges (looks a lot like Kurt Russell, so we can see some family resemblence)
    Susan ==> Emmanuelle Vaugier (again, looks alot like Erica Cerra)
    Machado ==> Robert Davi
    Owen's Father ==> Tommy Lee Jones
    Meyers ==> William Hurt (Meyers is described as looking like a college professor in a suit...)
    Franks ==> Ving Rhames (yes, I know, he's black, but watch "Echelon Conspiracy" and you'll get it)

    Did I miss anybody?

      I was just thinking.

    On MH:Alpha, the end bad guy, Mister Albino.  How about Will Patton?   :hmm  I ain't seen him on much, but I think he could play a pretty scary "dead-soul" character.    Only seen him as a guest-star on Numb3rs, but I think he could do it.

    She'd fit?:



    Jamie Eason, I find her fit enough and attractive enough to be a "Made for TV" hunter, I don't know if Holly Newcastle would be a good choice since she's supposed to be more... well endowed than her, But I do think she would be a good choice for Julie, dyeing her hair black and putting some contacts and call it good.

    Just don't google her name, might not be A) for the faint hearted, B)SFW, at all, that's why I think holly would suit her a bit more.

    Eh, I still think she fits Julies description for the best, well at least in her most defining attributes.

    Physically fit, check.
    Pretty face but not overly gorgeous, check.
    Long black hair, with a hairdresser's aid, check.
    Glasses, check with a visit to the prop warehouse.

    As her current portafolio comparing to Julie's? well I'd consider Irony to cast her as the quintessential southern conservative girl.

    To be Holly eh... she needs more rack, and frankly the malice Holly displays from time to time can be very difficult to portrait, hence the need for an actress that can actually act, in that respect, Julies character comes off as more bland, other than being totally bad ass, there's not much that defines her and as such, I think a regular actress could take a jab at the role.

    Jamie Eason is one of my favorite fitness ladies, but she has to be cast as Power Girl first.  She was born to be the maid of might!

    How about Eliza Dushku as Julie? I haven't seen much of her work, but IMHO she can pull off the tough-as-nails-takes-no-crap-action-lady.

    For Vendetta:

    Marty Hood = Cary Elwes
    Lucinda Hood = Christina Ricci, assuming she can pull of an English accent. If not, then Summer Glau for the role.

    For Alpha:
    Heather = Christina Hendricks
    Kirk Conover = James Caan
    Adam Conover = Scott Caan
    Agent Stark = Ciarán Hinds (Agent Fujima in the Miami Vice movie)
    Nikolai = Timothy Olyphant, assuming he can pull off a Russian accent.

      Glau would be a good pic for Lucinda.       I'd never really thought of Caan playing an old guy but he's getting up there in age he'd have to.

    Too bad MHI:The movie didn't come out 15 years ago, Caan woulda been a kick-ass Earl.    He's who I had in mind when I first read MHI.

      I know this thread's been pretty well....described, but a guy popped to mind:

    Michael Massee   

    I see him every now and then, and every time, the guy is a true and purely creepy, evil bad guy.     Not real sure what role he'd be in, a little old, but maybe made to look younger he could play an excellent crazy Ray.

    After reading some of the suggestions for MHI characters, I have added some who are not as mainstream as the ones most of you have suggested

    Owen - Dave Batista (WWE Wrestler with some acting skills (not much)) big guy with Polynesian features

    Earl - James Woods (if a bit younger) I hear his voice and picture him when I read about Earl or Kurt Russell

    Julie - Kate B hands down...just needs to lose the accent

    Grandpa Harbinger - Clint Eastwood

    Agent Franks - Glenn Thomas Jacobs "WWE's Kane" again would be good character actor...since Franks doesn't speak much and neither does the "Kane" persona

    Grant - Chris Hemsworth...def could play the snobbish Grant


    or Stone Cold Steve Austin again...acting experience and does not need to talk much

    Agent Meyers - Hugo or "Agent Smith"

    Tripp - Kofi Sarkodie-Mensah a.k.a. Kofi Kingston from WWE...not a real big guy, but could pull off the school teacher look and persona

    Julie's dad - again James Woods could pull this one off too...

    Just my thoughts...would make for a very interesting cast I think.

      Ironically enough, the Big Show read MHI and tweeted that Kane is Agent Franks. :)
