And he's half Mexican!
That's important, right?
I haven't really established that Vic is half Mexican, but sure, it helps!
I wouldn't know. I don't read UDC.
That's fine. Nobody else reads it either.
...you play the Question?
Who is the Question?
Where am I?
God help him.
I think God is the one who put him there.
If Spike and Byrd hadn't beaten me to the punch, I would've had these up sooner. But I, too, have decided to recast an earlier casting of mine. The new Ultimate Batman Universe...
Batman/Bruce Wayne - Ryan Phillipe
Not the most traditional choice for the Caped Crusader, but his role in Cruel Intentions showed that he could be a cunning, manipulative spoiled brat, which is how I eventually want to portray the Wayne facade. And his role in a movie called Franklyn showed that he could be the raspy voiced, mysterious vigilante going up against a city of corruption. He's also played a soldier twice, which is a key part of Bruce's backstory in the game.
Alfred Jarvis - Jude Law
Seeing Sherlock Holmes shed a new light on how I could potentially portray the younger Alfred's relationship with Bruce, which is very much like the Watson to Holmes - doting and loyal, yet skeptical and consistently bothered by the fact that his own life is being disrupted by his friend's unusual occupation. Brothers not in blood, but in bond.
Henri Ducard/Ra's Al Ghul - Ralph Fiennes
While I still like my original choice of Benecio Del Toro, Fiennes brings more of a quality that Liam Neeson brought to the role in Begins, which is a mentor with practical experience and a worldly sense of being. It also doesn't hurt that he played Neeson's brother in the Clash of The Titans remake.
Talia Ducard - Olga Kurylenko
After seeing her in Hitman and Quantum of Solace, I think she'd be able to pull off the role well. It doesn't require an Oscar caliber actress more than an exotic face that sticks with you, as it does Bruce for the rest of his life.
Phillip Wayne - Bruce Greenwood
Continuing the tradition of former Batmen in the role, Greenwood embodies the man on the path to redemption through surrogate fatherhood over young Bruce. Plus, I personally felt he was a great Batman in Under the Red Hood, so I wanted to give him his props.
Lucius Fox - Robert Townsend
Physically, he's the perfect counterpart for the role. It's as if Lucius jumped off of the page. Townsend was also a childhood favorite of mine as the Meteor Man.
Salvatore Maroni - Mark Strong
His role as a mobster in Kick-Ass was pretty much perfect for the archetype Maroni represents.
Carmine Falcone - Christoph Waltz
Wasted opportunity as a mobster in the Seth Rogen Green Hornet, he'd be better used as Gotham's notorious top don.
Helena Bertinelli - Jessica Biel
Given where the character is going to go, I needed an actress who could play tough-as-nails yet completely vulnerable to her emotions, which is what Biel is to a tee. For proof, reference Blade: Trinity and The A-Team.
Oswald Cobblepot - Ray Liotta
Cobblepot isn't meant to be a short, pudgy and dignified gentleman in this universe, more than a mean spirited wannabe mobster. Liotta could do great things with the role, while adding a familiar face to round out the cast.
Why I agree with your Ultimate Batman? Ryan Phillipe in Breach - nuff said.
Ah, yes. Infact, using a still from that movie...
Ultimate DC RPG
Larfleeze - Scott McNeil: Considering Larfleeze is an alien, there's no actor that looks like him; therefore, the voice is the only way to 'cast' him. I chose Scott because based on his previous animation rolls, I think he has the specific voice I hear when I write Larfleeze or read him (in any medium, not just UDC). Scott's other roles have been Dinobot in Beast Wars, Piccolo (Ocean Group Dub) in Dragon Ball Z, and Logan/Wolverine in X-Men: Evolution, along with a lot of other voices in other TV Shows.
What I like about Brandon Routh is that his roles in Superman Returns, Chuck, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World show that he's equally adept at playing the *****ebag as he is at playing the strong, silent hero.
I've always thought his character on Chuck was a *****e, i was watching it with my parents when they revealed his true affiliation and my first words out of no where were "He's a *****e bag!"
I'd like to cast Hulk at this point, not Banner, but Hulk,
Who better then the original hulk?
LOU FERICKIN FERRIGNO!
Besides, he still has arms larger then I am
Jeez, Sabe ... do a pushup or something.
I was exaggerating Syn, c'mon, humor me a little
I know i dont play him, or any chaacter related, but when i read Byrd's DD stuff, i can see Robin Shu as Shang Chi
Icon/Scott Morse- Henry Cavill
Keira- Ashley Greene
Eric Dean- Michael Trevino
Haze- Eliza Dushku
Synergy- Kristen Bell
Shadow Walker/Kevin Pierce-Sam Whitwer
Erica- Olivia Wilde (Recast)
Richard Midas- Alexander Skarsgard
Alexander Anderson-Aaron Ekhart
Marcus Ryder- Dwayne Johnson
Joren Kel-Jonathan Rhys Meyers
Kelsa- Nina Dobrev
Dono- Ryan Kwanten (though he is usually seen in his Mandalorian armor)
Boolon Chonota - A tennis ball on a stick in front of a green screen.
Rotta Desiljic Tiure- A tennis ball on a stick in front of a green screen.
And of course,
Howard the Duck- A tennis ball on a stick in front of a green screen.
Howard the duck should always be a short guy in an animatronic suit!
voiced by Steve Carrel
I think my Howard would be voiced either by H. Jon Benjamin, Dana Snyder, or whoever does the voice of Carl on Aqua Teen Hunger Force.
