Default Re: The X-force Casting Thread

Putting what you really, really want to happen aside.. do you honestly see Fox building a new films series (not one movie, not two but a series) with Stephen Lang as the heroic lead?

Really?

It makes no sense whatsoever to me. The guy is a decent actor but he's one-note: sinister villain. Maybe I missed a performance he's been the lead hero and sells himself so well in. Or maybe it's just that he's tall, older, juices and has white hair.

There's a checklist that all casting choices have to follow, and goods, box office draw and marketability are at the top of the list. Ron Perlman has more heroic charisma than Lang but even he has to be covered in makeup to be turned into a comic book movie lead. And that film series wasn't that much of a risk. We're talking about X-Men here. Fox is taking this seriously now.
