    I think you have some great ideas there. I especially like your choice for Skinner (one of my fav of the Lilin) and Nick Stahl would probably make a pretty good Blackout indeed. He certainly has enough of a pretty boy look to pull off the "beautiful face" that he so dearly loves.

    Definitly Im all for it... having her spawn each of her children for GR to take down piece by piece, then the grand battle with her and GR at the end.

    Only if she's played by Katie Price! (aka Jordan)

    Yeah, she'd be a really good villain. She was a strong character in the comics: mother of a load of hellspawn with diverse powers and appearances. Lots of creative possibilities there.

    You know who I think would make a great Lilith? Sigourney Weaver. Like she is in Alien Resurrection, dangerous and sexy. And, of course, a great actress with strong screen presence.

    God, u hit the motherlode there....!
    I hope that if they ever make a sequel, and if they did decide on Lilith, they don't take the predictable "sexy, seductive young villainess" route...
    Instead , someone older (but still sexy, IMO) like Weaver, Susan Sarandon, Lena Olin or Miranda Richardson would be amazing!!!!

    I'm a huge fan of Lilith and her kids. I really think it would make for a brilliant movie as she is the perfect villian for the screen. All her little henchmen can be sent to stop Ghost Rider from getting to her but, of course Ghost Rider must have vengeance and nothing will stop him from getting to her.

    By the way, we have a conversation started about who you'd cast as Lilith or any Lilin.... //www.superherohype.com/forums/showthread.php?t=148987. I'm pretty sure many agree with you on the Sigourny idea...

    Didn't know this thread existed. Thanks for the tip, Flamehead.

    I vote Sigourney Weaver for Lilith. Great actress, icy, sexy, strong maternal figure.

    No ideas for the Lillin, but please no wrestlers. I love wrestling, but it's like death for a movie to have a wrestler in it.

    Yeah, Sigourney would be wonderful...

    I agree with the wrestler comment as well. While they may have the look (and certainly talent in their own field) they most often fail to live up to the task in film.

    Truer words may never have been spoken. I am a avid wrestling fan for around 20 years now (I started watching very young) and what I've come to realize is that wrestlers can't act.

    My friend and I always comment that Chris Benoit had the most accurate mannerisms to be Wolverine in the X-Men movies, but we also know it would really be a bad idea knowing Benoit can't act. Hell, at times he can't even work a mic.

    No wrestlers.

    I must say, Sigourney Weaver might be the best choice for Lilith. Maybe if not a Ghost Rider sequel, perhaps as a character in a Dr. Strange film. Or maybe that's the insomnia talking.

    I don't know...especially after seeing this guy and revamping my choice for Skinner. His last film was The Longest Yard

    Dalip Singh

    [​IMG]


    By the way he's 7'3 400pds. That seems about right cause that's the average from six different sites.

    And if not Skinner then another. He's a current fave for Bane in Batman.

    Being able to understand them would be important me thinks. I don't think he spoke much because I don't think he speaks english.

    Jet Li couldn't either when he filmed Lethal Weapon 4. Leanred the lines phonetically. But I think I remember at the premiere he spoke more during an interview, it was just the character.

    I just watched the special features for The longest yard, they said after weeks of english lessons they gave up and put the subtitles in, the director said he wasn't told it was happening and feared he may be killed at the premiere.

    Arnolds big break was Conan the Barbarian and they dubbed in a voice for him (it sounds queer) and look at him now, he's rich as hell. I'm sure this guy will learn english now that he's had a taste of Hollywood money.

    Umm...I hate to tell ya but that was pure Arnold in Conan. The movie he was dubbed in was Hercules in New York. The figured his accent was fine for Conan since it was fantasy and he was supposed to be Cimmerian or some such. He also had done Stay Hungry( Jeff Bridges, Sally Field"naked") and Pumping Iron along with a few T.V. shows before Conan. No dubbing in any of those either.

    Even though I am against pro wrestlers in movies, Dalip Singh does have the perfect size and body type for the character. It could be possible to redesign Skinner and have him a silent hunter to allow for such an actor. But is he a good enough actor to play the character right?

    I have still yet to see The Longest Yard remake, so I'm curious.

    In the special feature everyone refered to him as Pierre I wonder why? He really didn't need to act much in that movie, just look big and scary which he did in spades so who knows.

    That's true. As far as the Pierre goes I couldn't say.

    Hard to say. Sometimes someone just is. Or is just perfect for a certain role. Hulk Hogan pretty much played himself in Rocky III and was better than anything else he'd been in since. Serena Williams was in an Law and Order episode and couldn't act her way out of a wet sack. Same with singers trying to act. Some can (Cher, Tupac, Will Smith) some can't ( Brittney Spears, Lil Kim, Kenny Rogers)

    Nelly was pretty good in that movie, as were most of the wrestlers and football players.

    But the movie does not seem to house the most complicated of roles. Either a security guard or football player or... cheerleader. These were not Oscar roles (don't need to see the movie to know that).

    I'm sure as fans of the character we don't want a bad actor to ruin him. I still feel Colin Farrell, albeit had the right accent for the character, was a horrible choice for Bullseye and just made scenes with him unbearable.
