Why couldn't this have been posted in the Alfred casting thread, rather than having its own thread made devoted to it?

People like Donald Sumpter at 70 and Jonathan Pryce at 66



YES, Sam Lowy would be good

Niven would have made a killer Alfred back in the day :-)

I'd accept, Dalton. Of course I would, if he was chosen.

But my problem is, he looks like a man in his 50's. Not a few months of 70.

If Batman was played by a younger actor, then fine.
But since he's not, since I'm assuming these characters are aged respectively, then I want an actor who will represent that older and wiser age.

Dalton is too youthful imo.

^ He's a bit older looking now. That "Alfred" pic was from Hot Fuzz, nearly 7 years ago.

Besides, makeup does wonders

He still doesn't look old enough lol

Alfred, in this movie, to me, should be just as tired and weary as Bruce is. All the while, retaining his sense of humour. The last bit of joy the old boy has left. Like in TDKReturns.

Dalton isn't the actor in my mind that could represent that.
He'll probably still look and feel younger than what he should at 80!

"Adding that he saw Snyder's "Man of Steel" and "liked it," Dalton says with a laugh that his playing Alfred "might be brilliant casting, mightn't it? Who knows? Otherwise, no comment!"

Let the fan-favorite be Alfred, to counterbalance the "risk" of Affleck :P
