I play this game with privately, but with all these 'Ask' topics going up, I figured I'd break the trend a little bit and make it more public!

Here, you basically name a character, and I will cast the most suitable actor/actress for them based, not just on looks, but also on acting ability and demeanor. As someone who aspires to work in the film industry, I'd like to think I have at least a little bit of talent in this area. xD

Please don't post in pictures, it clogs up the thread and makes it hard to read.

Have at me!

Marion Cotillard was always my pick - even before TDKR. If I had to choose someone else, Ashley Greene could do a younger Talia - provided she properly learn how Talia acts.

Idris Elba. He would be better suited to T'Challa than to Heimdall. He's also a brilliant actor.

@TheWholeDamnShow said:

LMAO. Is that the generic dude who always gets killed? Simon Pegg? xD

@YourNeighborhoodComicGeek said:

UGH. Hate Ryan Reynolds, don't worry. Deadpool could be played by Norman Reedus. He's got that joker aspect to him.

Evan Rachel Wood of course!

Thanks! I'm not too familiar with Vic, as I only knew the second Question - Renee.

@Blood1991 said:

Psylocke

She's one of the most difficult, actually. If we're talking Asian Betsy, I like to think Maggie Q is the most appropriate. From what I've seen of her in Nikita, she's really got that intense spirit that Betsy carries.

@menaceforever said:

Bane on Venom

Bane on Venom would require immense amounts of CGI, considering how huge he is portrayed in the comics. As for the actor? Eric Bana. He's an incredibly diverse actor, who, provided he had his image tweaked, could easily pull off the menacing and calculating Bane we know from Knightfall.

#13 Posted by menaceforever (3696 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm think Nightfall size

#14 Posted by Blood1991 (8082 posts) - - Show Bio

@RainEffect: Oooh Good choice!

Since i think you have a knack for this, how about, Harley Quinn?

@menaceforever said:

Eric Bana could definitely do that. I mean, go and check out the images from the 2009 Star Trek movie of him with a bald head. He rocks the look, and if he bulked up (with the help of CGI), he could break Batman physically and emotionally.

Why thank you!

That's EASY. Kristen Bell. She's bubbly, she's upbeat, she's potentially psychotic. xD

#16 Posted by menaceforever (3696 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't think anyone could pull off Harley's voice sadly.

#17 Posted by RainEffect (3240 posts) - - Show Bio

@menaceforever: Have you heard Kristen Bell's voice before? If you've got a moment, check out any of her interviews on Youtube. She's got a crazily similar voice to how I imagine Harley would speak. Maybe not on Tara Strong's Arkham Asylum/City level, but Kristen could definitely get close!

I've never even heard of the other two. xD
 
Barry Allen - now, I don't want to get my Flashes mixed up here, so forgive me if I cast someone more like Wally West. I'd go with Patrick Wilson. He was the antagonist in the A-Team movie, and he was hilarious.

Animal Man.

#24 Posted by Blood1991 (8082 posts) - - Show Bio

Luke Cage

Misty Knight

Iron Fist

Colleen Wing

Basically who would you cast for Heroes for Hire?

#25 Posted by RainEffect (3240 posts) - - Show Bio
@nickthedevil: Yeah, I don't know the character well enough to make a decent pick, sadly. Like, I could base one off appearance only, but that's only a third of what's needed to properly cast an actor.
 
@Fuchsia_Nightingale said:

Argh! Everyone is picking these more B/C list characters that I don't know! xD I've never read ANYTHING with Animal Man in it - sorry!

Colleen Wing

Basically who would you cast for Heroes for Hire?


  • Luke Cage - Terry Crews. Every time I see this guy, I think of Luke Cage. Seriously, I swear Bendis models him after Terry.
  • Misty Knight - Not too familiar with her. I've only read like literally one thing with her in it, and that was a Shadowland book.
  • Iron Fist - Ryan Gosling. When he's not being a quirky douche, Ryan Gosling could definitely pull off the part-time corporate face/full-time lethal weapon. He's got a very serious streak to him, as seen in movies such as Drive and The Ides of March.
  • Colleen Wing - Again, I don't know her well enough.
And, for extra points because I didn't answer a couple, here's someone who has been a liaison to Heroes for Hire. 
 
Moon Knight - Ryan Phillippe. Obviously the older Ryan - not the pretty boy from Cruel Intentions. He's done a lot of serious roles lately, with that potential psychotic demeanor that Marc/Steve/Jake has. See The Lincoln Lawyer for proof!
#26 Posted by Fuchsia_Nightingale (10130 posts) - - Show Bio

@RainEffect: Okay ^-^

#27 Posted by Blood1991 (8082 posts) - - Show Bio

@RainEffect: Terry Crews is a good one, though I'm not sure if he could pull it off. As for Ryan Gosling I don't think I've seen much with him in it. Also you must discover Misty Knight she is amazing 'though we have very different taste lol"

One more

John Stewart

#28 Posted by RainEffect (3240 posts) - - Show Bio
@Fuchsia_Nightingale: You're welcome to ask me another character! <3
 
@Blood1991: Oooo... John Stewart is surprisingly difficult. My cast will probably be based off the Justice League cartoon from back in the 90s. xD
 
I'd go with Anthony Mackie. He's the guy from The Hurt Locker, he plays Sandborn. Really talented actor who has this heartbreaking scene at the end of the movie (don't worry, it isn't a spoiler) where he talks about how he doesn't want to die in war and wants a son. Definitely go with him!

We're talking New 52 Cyborg, right? If so, Brian J. White from Fighting could do it. But my mind keeps nagging me - wasn't there a dude in Smallville who played Cyborg?
 
As for Raven, I would be inclined to say Katie McGrath, but I like to reserve her for Lady Loki. Hmm... need someone enigmatic, who could pull off this reserved quirkiness. I'd go with Ellen Page. She really convinced me in Inception

This isn't an 'Ask me a question' thread, it is a thread where you name a character, and I choose an actor/actress best suited to playing them on the big screen! But, for the lulz, I'll answer. 
 
The 'ALL THESE FEELS' meme. It makes me laugh every time because it is so true.

  • Superman - I've actually never been able to cast him. I don't like Henry Cavill as Kal because I always picked Henry for Bucky Barnes.
  • Captain America - Sam Worthington. Die his hair blonde, get him to bulk up and bam - you have your Steve Rogers. He's got all the qualities of Steve, as seen in a movie like Man on a Ledge.
  • Dr. Strange - Jon Hamm. Stylish, smooth and potentially quirky, Jon could rock the mustache and cape and yell "EYE OF AGAMATTO"
  • Tim Drake - Depends on how old. For Pre-Flashpoint Red Robin, I would probably pick Aaron Johnson.
  • Martian Manhunter - Argh, J'onn, Y U SO HARD TO CAST?! Obviously there would need to be some CGI/Digital Imagery, but for his voice? People might get cut at me for casting a white guy.
  • Wonder Woman - Bridget Regan. If you've seen Legend of the Seeker, you'll totally understand why I cast her.
