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.

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.

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.
