The Alfred Pennyworth Casting Thread
 
Yup, it's an Alfred thread. The Dark Knight's trusted butler and friend. I'm not entirely sure if he'll be in the film, but I have a gut feeling he will at least have a cameo of some sorts.

Hmm.... how about a variety of flavors?

SUPER SARCASTIC TAKE: Steve Coogan.

WISE COUNSELOR TAKE: David Pryce

LIVE ACTION BEWARE THE BATMAN TAKE: Tim Dalton

Yeah I actually got this feeling too. IF we see any other Bat character than just Batman, it'll be Alfred.

So hmmm.... Since maybe this will be a somewhat younger Batman, they could focus less on making Alfred old and crippled. And I understand this is a very left-field casting choice but how about Crispin Glover?

I think Hurt is too old now myself, But man, 10-15 years ago he'd have been a really interesting choice. As for Glover.... Well if he was the Alfed raising Bruce no wonder he's all screwed up.

How about Pierce Brosnan?

He would be a more active Alfred than Caine was. But I could see it. And I think he could handle the biting humor Alfred is known for. Good choice in my opinion.

pierce brosnan is actually a REALLY popular choice. I, for one, haven't seen enough movies with him to comment on the subject. (which means ,no , I haven't seen any of the old james bond movies. only the Daniel craig-era ones. yes, I know, i'm missing out a lot on life. )

how about alan rickman ?

and a big HELL no to crispin glover, lol.

Rickman as Alfred would be supacool!! He can do droll and biting humor in his sleep. That's not a joke. He dreams in withering sarcasm. RICKMAN: "Really nightmare creature born from the terrors of my childhood... You think you can scare me?"

back in the old days, I truly believe gary oldman could've been ****ing perfect as the joker.

but atleast we got a perfect Gordon out of him , so I guess it didn't turn out that bad.

Brendan Gleeson or David Thewlis would be very interesting. Though a personal favourite would be a salt/pepper haired Stephen Dillane.

Simon Callow for a deadpan Alfred like in Batman: TAS.

Timothy Dalton for more the former MI6-type Alfred.

Has Alfred always been British?

Cranston for Gordon. Geoffrey Rush for Alfred.

Deserana 07-28-2013 12:53 PM

Re: The Alfred Pennyworth Casting Thread
 
Definitely Cranston for Gordon.

Michael Caine for Alfred!!! He said he'd do more I believe!

But if not him... Hopkins maybe?
Peter O'Toole
Christopher Plummer?
