Who wants John Hurt as Alfred?
 
I think he should fit the part

Too old, wouldn't be my first choice. But I'd be fine with it, he's a great actor, just a bit of a predictable choice. I'd rather have Alan Rickman

I'd be on board if nobody had mentioned Dalton, because Dalton is too damn perfect for the part.

Too old? He's 73.

I thought he was 80 something for some reason, nevermind

No. John Cleese.
Period. :cwink::cwink:

Nah, too predictable. He's already played a comic book father figure role in Hellboy.

Yeah he looks Michael Caine's age but he's a good age for it.

Need some Timothy Dalton.

I thought Ian Holm would be a good option before I googled him and saw how old he's gotten.

That's the trick imo.
To find an actor, who is young enough to pump out a few films, but looks way older. To give Alfred the more tired, aged look.

People like Donald Sumpter at 70 and Jonathan Pryce at 66

I'd be happy with either Dalton for a more hardened ex military type Alfred, or John Cleese for a more traditional one.

Jeremy Irons or Terence Stamp.

shauner111 10-07-2013 12:48 PM

Re: Who wants John Hurt as Alfred?
 
Terence Stamp would just feel weird.

Re: Who wants John Hurt as Alfred?
 
Ah, the heck with it, Anthony Hopkins as Alfred :D
