Boyle adresses the Sam Worthington rumours:

I hope he is approached. He'd be a fine choice for the role, judging from the Terminator Salvation trailer alone. He certainly looks the part.

Jon Hamm would make a good phantom imo.

yeah, Jon Hamm would be good.

It really depends how they do it, how the production is, and so on. I mean, if the script is good and if it's independent in a sense like how Sly Stalone movies are (Expandable, Rambo) then it'll get a good lead. If it's independent like how Mutant Chronicles was, then I doubt it'll get anyone good.

Never thought of Hamm, but damn, you're right, he'd be a very good choice for the father role (too old for the son).

Too old? He's 5 years older than Worthington. How much difference does that make? Sure not old enough to play the father.
At least Hamm is over 6 feet tall. Worthington is kinda short for the Phantom.

He is?! I imagined the guy was at least 40, he sure looks like that. He looks a lot older than Worthington, for sure. Not sure if he's old enough for the father then, but then again, Sean Connery is only around six years older than Harrison Ford, and still managed to play Henry Jones Sr., so you never know.

Worthington might not be tall enough, but strictly speaking, neither was Billy Zane, and he worked perfectly anyway IMO.

At least Zane is 6 feet tall. Also, I think it's just his body type but Worthington looks short. We need somebody with a Hugh Jackman type of stature.

This picture shows what I mean about Worthington 's stature:

Good example with that picture, I did think he was taller than that.

However, I am not against the idea due to this; the Phantom has been drawn as rather short by the brilliant Pat Quinn for Moonstone, and it worked pretty well.

I'll not deny I'd prefer a tall, lanky but muscular guy, though, with a build similiar to the Ray Moore-drawn Phantom:

(none of these are drawn by Moore himself, but that's the kind of build I'd prefer an actor to have. He needs to be believable physically, and a Schwarzenegger-like bodybuilder type isn't necessarily)

Here's my perfect Phantom stature:

Hehehe, while that's definitely too huge I think the Phantom should be a big guy. He needs to be intimidating.
The first picture you posted looks like a teenager. The second one looks like a skeleton. The third one is alright. But I would hope for bigger than that if just a bit. He doesn't need to be Arnold in his prime big. But he should be minimum Vin Diesel big.

Vin Diesel would actually LOOK perfect for this part when you mention it, he'd look very much like the Phantom when wearing the costume. His acting skills, on the other hand...

Another action hero who would look a lot like the Phantom in costume is Jason Statham. However, I'd never want to see either him or Diesel (is that really his name?!) near the character.

Honestly, I can't think of anybody I feel will fit the role as well as Zane. Anybody?

Jim Caviezel.

The darker side of the Phantom, handsome. You want someone who'd lend credibility to the role, pick him.

Not tough looking enough if you ask me.
One of the good things about Worthington is that he looks tough at least.
Caviezel looks too effeminate in my opinion. I look at him and I don't see somebody who can kick butt and take names as the Phantom should look.

I don't think Diesel or Statham are right either. They look tough but there rest is not there.

I like the choice of Caviezel! I've seen him suggested by many fans, and I think he could do a good job as the father (again, too old to be the son, or at least too old looking). He's got the kind of physique I'd prefer the Phantom to have too.

Disel and Statham would be better off as villains in a Phantom movie, that I would actually like.

I have no idea, really, but if he got the directing job I guess we would have seen a new announcement telling this. Either way, I'd kill to read the script.

You want effeminate? Look at Brandon Routh, that's effeminate.

I don't think Routh could be described as effeminate. He looks even more like Superman in his recent works now that he is older, and I hope he gets the chance to play the character again now that he is older and all.
I've actually said before that I think he could make a really good Phantom too, if he wasn't already Supes. He has the perfect look, has talent, and is a good role model.

Still, there are few actors outside there that I can picture as the Phantom. I think he might be one of the trickiest costume heroes to cast, since the costume can not be worn by some 20 year looking sissy and still look good. The Phantom also needs to be a man audiences believe they would trust their lives with, somebody you can trust, a man who is kind with good people but shows little mercy for the people that dares to cross him.

I can't say that Routh strikes me as being particularly masculine looking though, and he has yet to prove to me that he has any real talent.

You know I've been thinking, while this film is still in it's development stages, it would be great if in the mean time they would make a dtv Phantom animated movie. The people who made Turok:Son of Stone would be ideal for such a project.
