To celebrate my 10.000 post, I decide to create a blog featuring casting choice I came across from one of the sites I visit listing the ideal actors to play in a Fullmetal Alchemist live-action movie. I know there is no chance in Hell of this happening for real, and even if does come true, it won't probably as awesome as I pictured in my head. So here is the cast choice.

Jamie Bell as Edward Elric
Jonah Hill as Alphonse Elric
John Hamm as King Bradley
Ezra Miller as Envy
Christina Hendricks as Lust
Matt Lucas as Gluttony
Theresa Palmer as Winry Rockbell
Linda Hunt as Pinako Rockbell
James McAvoy as Roy Mustang
Anna Torv as Riza Hawkeye
Zachary Quinto as Greed
Aaron Yoo as Ling
Dwayne Johnson as Scar

So do you guys agree? Who would you cast to play in a live-action FMA movie?

yeah, pretty good. James McAvoy as Roy (is my favorite).

@CaioTrubat:

Well I didn't choose him really. Besides he would be in armor all the time so it wouldn't make much difference.

Other than Jonah Hill, fantastic choices IMO.

I agree with all the cast members you picked all but Jonah Hill

Perfect choices my friend. =)

@CaioTrubat: I do like the rest of the choices though. However I think that I would go with Oded Fehr as scar. I think he would pull off the complexities of his character and I just don't think Dwayne Johnson could . Though I suppose he isn't as complex in brotherhood as he was in the original.

This is what he looks like-

I agree with this.

On Topic

I only know 3/13 actors for sure. So I can't accurately say they can or cannot fit the role.

Swap Jonah Hill, Matt Lucas and Teresa Palmer.

I don't like those choices, but everything else is great.

Unless the cast is fully Asian, no deal.

@CaioTrubat: Who would you cast as the coolest character in the franchise?

This Guy...

Actually FMA would be one of the few Animes where it'd be more appropriate to have a mostly non-Asian cast given it's clearly suppose to take place in a Western nation. (Basically Anime Germany.)

@Decoy Elite: I would take Asians playing fake Germans over Americans playing fake Germans anyday

Not bad actually. Although Bell might be a little too tall to play Edward lol
