This is what your problem is. You don't respect the source material at all. You'd rather "settle" for an actor so you could have the right amount of muscle than pick an actual actor who can bring the character to life.

You won't be missed, Ulik.

Again, if you knew about actors and acting and how studio's treat their actors during production then you wouldn't be telling me this.

yeah, at least The Rock has made a conscious effort to act. In Hollywood. In actual movies.

I should of ended posting as soon as I saw the posts where people were asking who Rocky or Pete are, asking what issues to read for the 1st time (really? your on here talking about like you know wtf yet you've never read one issue or maybe have read 4 of them? really?), and then only saying guys like The Rock or Diesel should play Drax or naming off well known nominees who have been advertized on the red carpet. It seems like you guys imdb'ed red carpet actors. This is a Super Hero Space Sci-Fi not a Drama shooting for an Oscar. Come on!

I'm done posting here, have fun in your narrow minded boxes.



Show's how much you know about actors... I've only listed one pro wrestler.
Bye.

IMO The Rock is shaping up to be a decent actor, he's just far too big of a name to play a superhero.

People are still going to refer to his character as The Rock and not the actual characters name.

When you cast a c-list character with an A-list actor, people are going to see it as "Star-Lord, Gamora and The Rock." That's always tricky.

The Rock isn't A-list. He stars in movies that about two dozen better, bigger actors passed on. A supporting character, or playing a version of himself, thats a different story. But he won't be Drax, so it's moot.

Good actor between 30-45 + HGH = an acceptably interesting Drax. "on the nose" casting like the Rock or Vin are unnecessary and make me sleepy. Besides, Vin Diesel is already playing Drax in another movie, Riddick 3: Sorry About Riddick 2.

*Bump*

Can't believe this thread hasn't had any discussion since Halloween.

The big, green, bald b*stard deserves some love.

Can't be long until we start getting some actor lists for Drax.

I don't think Drax will be dumb, but I think he will be mostly silent. My template for Drax is Billy from Predator. The guy who doesn't say much, but is recognized as a bad dude that you don't mess with even amongst all of these skilled warriors.

Only Drax would hand the Predator his a$$.

He's pretty much Riddick as a character, isn't he?

Right. I liken him to Billy more in the way that the story presented him and how the camera would pan to him and he would be an intimidating presence, not so much the outcome of the character.

It's funny that you mention Riddick, who does seem like a very similar character to Drax. I see a lot people mention Vin Diesel as someone they want for the role. He is not going to do Drax after basically playing the same character in several other films.

"**************.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned the names of three actors who are currently battling for the role of ‘Drax The Destroyer’ in James Gunn’s Guardians Of The Galaxy feature film. A source very close to production has let us know three faces who want to take on this titan.."

"Isaiah Mustafa, Brian Patrick Wade and former WWE Superstar Dave Bautista are all in negotiations with Marvel for the role of ‘Drax’ in Guardians Of The Galaxy"

If this is true I dont like any of these guys

Yeesh. I was hoping they would go with a legit actor, not beefcake and wrestlers. Guess they're saving money where they can, but these are all terrible choices.

I ridiculed The Rock before, but he's starting to look pretty good by comparison. I hope Marvel is smarter than this.

Shut up, look menacing, and kill people with your knives and bare fists.

I think Mustafa, Wade or Bautista could pull that off easily enough.

If that was the case HHH would have been Thor. I'm not saying wrestlers cant act, bc som can, but Batista cant.

http://youtu.be/3RcXfwZYgsk

Wade is an actor, as well as Mustafa. Mustafa looks to nice and every time he will be on screen all you'll see is the old spice guy in green. I wonder if wad does well, I only know him from big bang

Thor doesn't kill people with knives.
And Thor is a lot more than just beefcake; he's got a lot of story, dialogue, emotion, and even intellect, even if he *is* a medieval equivalent of a surfer dude.
Drax is a quiet, efficient killing machine. The right look is what's essential here; you don't need an Oscar-winning actor for this role.

Finn then for look I say none of these guys.

-Batista is to old, and Man with the iron fist sucked (Where he played a similar character to Drax)
-Mustafa is just to old spice and would take away from the role
-Wade I'm half and half on
