I meant the classic version

I think that Jackson will do a good job, but being the original Nick Fury fanboy that I am I would like to see a white actor acting as him (not an offense to anyone)

How about Al pacino?

Then again, wouldn't the actor have to be 80 years old to be Fury?

#13 Posted by Constantine (16046 posts) - - Show Bio

I think a younger Robert De Niro could've pulled it off, like him in Taxi Driver

but...

nowadays, maybe Josh Duhamel from Transformers

Yeah but didnt something happen to reverse, slow, or do something to his aging? Magneto was in WW2, but he was reverted back to a child and then aged so they could explain away him being old. Theres no way Fury is actually 80 and looking the way he does.

I feel like crying looking at the picture Nighthunter.

#29 Posted by Nighthunter (28580 posts) - - Show Bio

With what he has gone through and his age Fury shouldn't even be able to move..... :P

I recall that when Fury fought (and beat) Cap the second time he mentioned of HYDRA doing something to him just like what they did to Cap, I don't remember what it was but that may explain why and how Fury is in such a good shape

Now stiuck with me here.....Brad Pitt. He already proved that he can be made up to be old like in The Curiois Case of Benjamin Button lol...they could make him into a good Nick Fury...he has depth, physicallity and I think he could actually pull of the part well....he is a beter actor then some people give him credit for.

#35 Posted by Nighthunter (28580 posts) - - Show Bio

No thanks

#36 Posted by Lunacyde (17966 posts) - - Show Bio

I take it you aren't a Brad Pitt fan?

#37 Posted by Nighthunter (28580 posts) - - Show Bio

Not saying that but I don't see him as Fury, I would be willing to accept the possibilities of Thor and Captain but I just can't picture him as Fury

#38 Edited by Lunacyde (17966 posts) - - Show Bio

Aight ....I was just throwing an Idea out there

I cant see him as Cap or Thor because I want someone new and unknown for them kinda.....but IMHO he could have made a good Fury....with the make up to make him older I thought he could really disappear in the role...but itd never happen so doesnt really matter.

#39 Posted by Nighthunter (28580 posts) - - Show Bio

and I was just giving my constructive critique of it :P

#40 Posted by Lunacyde (17966 posts) - - Show Bio

Good!....by the way speaking of Brad Pitt.....he is producing Kick-Ass did you know that?

#41 Posted by Mz P!NK (279 posts) - - Show Bio

Ok ok what about

Dennis Quad as classic fury
i still think that sam will do a great job as fury but if they did do a classic i'd pick mista quad
#42 Posted by Nighthunter (28580 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't know about the acting but he does look like fury

Ya good point we need someone with the right skillz + his look...
#45 Posted by Nighthunter (28580 posts) - - Show Bio

yeah I mean, Hasselhoff couldn't act but I gotta admit he does look like Fury

#46 Posted by Lunacyde (17966 posts) - - Show Bio

Yea I am excited to see Kick-Ass transfer to the big screen...sry for being off topic.

Dennis Quaid is a decent character in the right role....its hard to say if he could pull it off in my mind....however let me note that Dennis Quaid is playing Hawk in the G.I. joe movie.

Hmm Nick Fury shoul dbe an old guy who escaped death right.  Well I say we reanimate Charelton Heston's Corpse and give him an eye patch!

I can't think of a single human being bad-ass enough to play Nick Fury. This includes Samuel L. Jackson.

Yes, Samuel L. Jackson was the basis for a white character who made his first appearance in 1963, when Jackson was 15.
