Cast the Comics

Post by missjay »

I don't know what to call this topic... or where this topic is, if already addressed...
But if you could cast the characters from Valiant, who would you choose?

I saw a commercial for Sons of Anarchy and one of the actors struck me as a Aric-y type person...

The Hubby & I also really likes this guy from the 13th Warrior (if he was still young!)

Charlie Hunnam is a fairly good actor, pretty good choice. I think I heard he was in the running for Thor and since Hemsworth is probably out of the running, I like it.

My wife and I had this discussion too. For the "if they were younger" file, we came up with Sean Bean and Brian Blessed.

I got the chance to as Robert Venditti, the writer of the book, who he would think would play Aric well in a movie. He said he would get back to me and when he did he said Taylor Kitsch. Kind of an odd choice but after watching John Carter yesterday I still don't know if I can see it.

Charlie Hunnam looks the part and is probably about the right age.

I could totally see Taylor Kitsch play this new version of Aric. Not the original Aric from VH1, though.

I'm a big fan of Sons Of Anarchy and Charlie Hunnam is a great actor. But I'd personally like to see him as Green Arrow in a Justice League film.

What? Did I miss some news? What are you talking about? Last I heard, Chris Hemsworth is still Thor for the Thor 2 just like he was in the first Thor and The Avengers.
I would agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Man that is so wack! I looked up CAST! and Movies in the search box-- bc I really didn't want to start another thread..... :)
someone really should get that fixed-- :P

but I looked up Taylor Kitsch... mmm... I don't see him as Aric.

Torque? sure :)

no news. My sentence structure is often a mess. What I was meaning to say is, since Hemsworth is Thor, he probably wouldn't be interested in being X-O.

Then again if The Human Torch and Captain America can be the same person...

That thread was before we really saw the new books anyway so it's a much different perspective now.

What is a googles Star Trek Doodle? As long as it is real Star Trek and not the 2009 fanfic crap, I might geek out over it.

I never did take to the Gorn. They are one of the few races on Star Trek that bug me more than humans.

Edit - nevermind, I cracked the code. That is pretty cool.

Yeah, should change it to "Cast the CLASSIC Valiant Universe". I'm all for starting again for the new VU :thumb:

That being said, I still like Anton Yelchin for Pete Stanchek and Jesse Williams for Jack Boniface. Gonna be thinking about some of the others now...Bloodshot is a tough one, as are the new A&A...also need to see Gilad and Ivar more.

I like the choice for Aric, MissJay

I really should be doing something else.

The hubby and I can't think of someone for Bloodshot....
So I am throwing out ideas... I've never seen these guys act... I'm just saying they look like Bloodshot.

here's the first one... if he beefed up a little.
Liam Mcintyre

or Dominic Purcell, but he may be a little too old? And Beefy.. . :?

I've changed my mind re: Aric

Skarsgard is pretty good, but Charlie Hunnan all the way me thinks. :thumb:

I can't get beyond Torque's Patrick Swayze 80s hair, it'll be interesting to see his new look. I always thought of him as kind of a *SQUEE*, and man was I disappointed in Kris for ever hooking up with ape drape.

What about Karl Urban? He's getting up there, but he's sci-fi action man and could easily be an older, supporting cast member.

Did anybody watch Snow White & The Huntsman? I was struck by how much Hemsworth looks exactly like Aric as drawn by Lee Garbett. I wouldn't be surprised to hear that Lee was using that imagery for reference... (sorry, I can't really get some images up for comparison, I'm posting via iPhone at the moment).

I know Hemsworth is committed to Thor/Avengers for a while but he'd still be my top choice for Aric.

well EX-SOA member...poor timing too.

I choose Skarsgard additionally since he is a native Swede and though it's not Celtic, he'd manage the accent easily enough.

Hunnam is not tall enough, imo.
