the general public has also pretty much forgotten that he was James Bond, meaning that he wouldn't be all that distracting, which a lot of the other suggestions would be, particularly Brosnan.

William H. Macy is actually a fantastic choice.

Absolutely. But I'd prefer an actor for Alfred who hasn't already served in a similar role

Why not? We have a Batman actor who already served in a similar role.

I'm just messing with you, I totally get it.

Anthony Stewart Head would be awesome. I like Christopher Lee or Ian Mckellan personally.

Mckellan could be cool, but Lee is far too old at this point.

Patrick Stewart.

He does a mean quadruple take that I think could work for Alfred when Bruce throws him for a loop.

I know it's just a rumour, but I'd love Timothy Dalton to be cast. After all, BTAS and some of the comics have hinted at Alfred having a past as a spy or soldier. Why not a former Bond?



He also looks great with a moustache.

EDIT: Just noticed that ArmsHeldOut beat me to it on the last page, right down to the choice of photo. We do tend to think alike.

Dalton, or any Bond for that matter, would cause bit of a storm which would be great for WB...even bringing in many curious Bond fans possibly.

Someone did point out that Dalton is more low key, which would cause less distraction than Pierce would...and I pointed out, he's the only actor suggested that you'd buy him saying stuff like "Sir" and "Master Bruce", with affection. ...

Yeah. I want Dalton for the role

Im all for Dalton and Hurt right now. John Hurt if they want to return to the Michael Gough style, but if they want to move forward for live-action I think Dalton would be a fantastic choice.

The only thing is, this CBM site are the ones spreading Cranston as Lex and Dalton as Alfred. So I don't think those two will pan out.

The best would be Cranston as Gordon, and Dalton for Alfred.

Which is why I really want to see him as actual Alfred. Plus a lot of general audience fans who go to see this movie will not have seen Buffy.
