Phillip Baker Hall. Stern yet warm. Just what Perry White's characterization needs.

I just watched Inception again and it hit me as soon as this guy came on my tv screen...





Tom Berenger! He would make the PERFECT Perry White!

Perry is tough to cast..the man not only needs to look like him, but he needs to come off as a bit of a smart azz. We all have our own opinion on who we want, and i'd like alec baldwin.

Well then if he gets it lets hope Lane Smith didn't rub off on him at all, because never again, and I mean NEVER, do I wanna hear the phrase "Great shades of Elvis!" come out of Perry White's lips. It's "Great Caesar's ghost!" dammit! In all seriousness though McGill is pretty much note perfect, and I'm kicking myself for not having thought of him. He has now officialy replaced Jon Voight in my personal casting choices.

Another suggestion:
Dan Aykroyd?



I could totally hear him saying "Great Caesar's Ghost!"

He might be too busy telling anyone with a set of workable ears that Ghostbusters 3 is happening. Intriguing choice though.
