    Farnsworth - Allan Rickman or John Lithgow

    Zoidberg - John Malkovitch with prosthetics

    You know what I really wish Fox would make a Futurama movie rather than the simpson one.

    I think those choices are mostly suck except Kreuk for Amy and Lithgow for Farnsworth.

    DJ Qualls is for Fry.

    Leela shood be hmm... I don't know maybe Belluci or Jolie.

    Phil Lamarr in a fatsuit for Hermes.

    I talked to Joe Alaskey one time on toonzone where he's a member; The man could probably handle bender without a prob, but then again, why not use the orginal voice actor instead?

    Zoidberg - Dan Akroyd

    I'd say they should stick with animation. Just like the Simpsons.

    yeah totally, I just thought it'd be a fun idea to bring up given that Fox bloody canceled the series... idiots. I actually find many episodes of Futurama to be much funnier, smarter, quirkier and better than Simpsons and Family Guy. I tremendously enjoy the show

    I prefer Futurama to the Simpsons and I would love it if a movie was in the pipeline. Simpsons is like an institution, everybody knows the Simpsons.

    The only person I can think of for Leela would be Sarah Silverman.

    i was wondering why most were ignoring the obvious choice for these characters, get two guys in suits with a touch of cgi ala abe sapeon(sp) and just use the orginal voices

    Ok, I found this thread and felt like resurrecting it for no reason at all. Oh, and I filled mine out without using anyone from the voice cast, because that's too easy.

    that's pretty cool... but:

    leela isn't missing an eye, she's a cyclops,
    fry isn't supposed to be cool, he's a dork,
    bender looks too... well, too much,
    ziodberg looks more evil than just disgusting,
    so does nibbler,
    farnsworth looks spot on.

    the black and white drawing looks kind of cool, though.

    Aykroyd IS Zoidberg. That is all.

    And it's a shame Michael J. Fox is suffering from Parkinson's and is about 20 years too old, otherwise, he would be perfect for Fry.

    Forget the Family Guy Live Action thred with its horribly cast. Now THIS would be a good cartoon adaptation!

    Fry - Seth Green
    Leela - Jennifer Garner
    Bender - CGI with John DiMaggio doing the voice
    The Professor - Leslie Neilsen
    Zoidberg - CGI with Billy West doing the voice
    Hermes - Bernie Mac
    Amy - China Chow
