Me and Regwec finally agree on one thing, 100 %! We need to start a campaign for Wes Bentley. He is PERFECT for this role.

Quote:
You don't like Gosling for the role but you think Adkins would do well??? You want to go from Bale to Adkins? Oh boy. I think that Adkins is great for dumb action movies and should stay there.
I SEE SPIDEY. I agree completely. Adkins is a action fighter. Actors will be cast before fighters.

The thing a lot of these mongoloids here don't know(or care to know) is that Adkins is not an MMA fighter, he played one in one set of movies. They probably think he's russian too. The guy is an actor and stuntman who has vast training(and teaches) in many martial arts, not an MMA fighter playing actor. For WW I dunno, it'd probably be best to dip into unkowns and find one with the bod and the potential.

Any memorable roles any of those played?

Who is Tobey Maguire? Who knew him before he played Spider-Man?

Who the heck is Hugh Jackman? Who who and who are those who played comic book characters for the most part? More B-list actors than important name in cinema
Thing is, besides Brandon Routh, they all had experience leading in both film and stage or years in high quality television as well as training in the field.

It's like if Cooper and Gosling did a screentest. Sure theyre professional actors but those two have like a bromance goin I just wouldn't feel the tension if I was Zack.

He is my preferred choice so far of all the names I've heard mentioned.

Speaking of accents as well, adkins I've heard with 3 different convincing ones. Russian(undisputed), mild english(assassination games) and American(Ninja). He's also starred in a few movies opposite Ole Jean Claude down there. And is most certainly a better martial artist and by far better actor. Assassination Games and the newest Universal Soldier are on Netflix, check em out. Any of you can get a better feel for his ability than him just playing a pissed off russian mma fighter, which seems is the only thing aside from Expendables you recognise him from.

I like the direction this thread is headed in. Acting ability isn't half as important as fighting ability, musculature and having a powerful jawline. My guess is the current frontrunners are:

Dolph Lungren
Anderson Silva
Kevin Nash
Chris Jericho
Whoever Won American Ninja Warrior
Mike O'Hearn
The Situation
Brock Lesnar
LaRon Landry

Overexaggerate much? Oh, and speaking of ninja warrior I vote for Makoto Nagano for The Shredder. Seriously, you guys all seem to assume Adkins is just some mma fighter that broke into acting, when he's been acting and training since a teen. Got his break in the hong kong action scene etc. Look it up. None of you obviously know anything about him, just assumptions because most of his roles have been more centered on his fighting ability. Like I said, check out some of his other movies with more acting involved. Assassination Games and the newest Universal Soldier he was really good in and did more actual acting. And even with all the Undisputed bias, you have to recognise this guy is English, yet pulled off an amazingly accurate russian accent in that movie series. And is good enough at his art to convince you guys that he's an mma fighter. Haha

Hey, if Atkins' acting in Universal Soldier is anywhere close to Goldberg in that other Universal Soldier movie, then I'm sold.

Atkins must be CASTED.

herp, but seriously...UC: Day Of Reckoning is probably the best of the UC sequels. It's much different than the same ole **** the rest were. Adkins is the protagonist and JCVD + Lundgren are back as the main baddies. Good fight scenes and adkins does more acting than fighting. It's a good watch. I've sat through many many bad movies and many amazing movies, so if I say it's a good watch it usually is. Hell, how many other people immediately recognize a Zap Rowsdower fan? I'm a movie nerd. Adkins may not be an A-level actor, but he's not bad and is getting better with each role. He may not be the popular mainstream choice, but he's a good one despite your lack of experience.

I would be horrified if a meat head were cast as Batman. Imagine a meat head attempting to carry a movie like The Dark Knight. *shudder*

People complaining about gosling chin? Didn't Christian bale have the same problem? Which is why the tdk suit made his head look like a lightbulb? If that's the the flaw people bring up with gosling than its not a very good one at all.

I didn't like it about Bale either, but what could any of us do about it?

The Hoechlin rumor is bulls***, El Mayimbe said as much on Twitter.

For the candidate, I reiterate:

Garrett Hedlund

We're now casting the next Batman based on jawlines? His jawline isnt much different then Christain Bale's.

Whoever is cast as Batman will be like Marvel's Iron Man, the pillar of the DC cinematic universe. I can sleep much better at night knowing the responsibility of such a role is in Ryan Gosling's hands.

He'll be 35 in a month and based on his recent acting career Hollywood doesnt trust him as much. I realize Robert Downey Jr overcame the same thing and became Iron Man, but the story doesnt always end that way.

I'm very cool with this.

Thought he was great in Tron Legacy. I believe I've seen pictures of him with black hair, for another movie role.
