    As you guys know Jon Favreau has an Iron Man discussion group that's already has a casting forum that's 32 pages long. I'm gonna grab all the names off those pages and make a poll out of them below and I'm gonna to post it on Jon's Favreau's site. I belong to myspace. I know we've seen a couple Iron Man casting polls before (one by me) but this one is gonna have a lot of names on it. If I forget someone I'll ask the mods to add the name.

    Keep in mind I can ask to add more choices later and all of these choices were on Fav's website right HERE!

    FYI I chose ODED myself cause I think he's perfect, he's not a huge celebrity, and he's got a great personality. He can carry a film like this.

    Hey mods please help! Names to be added to list: (requests)

    1) Liev Schreiber

    I voted Edward Norton. I don't know why, but he feels like a good choice. Maybe he's a little less "suave" than Tony Stark should be, but a lot of these guys don't do it for me and he seemed like the closest thing to a good Tony.

    If you want the worst Iron Man movie possible, then yes, Ashton Kutcher is the first choice.

    I went with a little known actor, Ben Browder from Farscape and SG-1, he's a very good actor and I beleive would do a good job.
    And, yes if you want the movie to flop, then by all means choose Ashton Kutcher (dude where's my armor).

    I was thinking about Multiple choice but then it would rank your top choice the same as the 3rd.

    Regarding Ashton Kutchner yeah he's not my top choice and he's an MTV goof on Punk'd but you know what...I'll bet he could pull it off.

    My only request is that it's somebody who can be nailed down to a 3 movie deal. Some of the names on the list seem to big for that. Other than that, I trust the judgement of Favreau.

    There are quite a few guys on that list I wouldnt have a problem with, but my #1 choice isn't on that list at all:

    Mark Ruffalo

    I'm really surprised more people aren't behind him. He's got the look, the chops, he's a mid-level star right now, not too big or small to carry the franchise.

    I really, really wanted Dylan McDermott for a long time for the role Bobby Donnell on The Practice had similarities to Tony Stark and he really aced that role. At the same time, he hasn't done much of note since "The Grid," so I don't know how viable a choice he'd be.

    No he really can't. He doesn't have the maturity or experience necessary for Tony Stark. Not to mention the acting chops.

    I think I'm kind of changing my tune about Tom Cruise.

    I'd be more open to him doing the role, especially over Ashton Kutcher.

    here're my choices

    Jim Caveizel(my #1 choice)
    Matthew Fox
    Eddie Cibrian
    Jude Law
    Dylan McDermott


    not my choices

    Tom Cruise is too damn crazy and too damn short.
    Mark Ruffalo is a fine actor, but is too short 5'9"

    Billy Crudrup doesn't want to play a superhero

    Oded Fehr would be a better Dr. Strange than Tony Stark

    I'm not sure where people are pulling Oded Fehr out of. I think they are just fangirls.

    Jim Caviezel is a great choice.

    If it had to be a superstar, I'd be OK with Tom Cruise I suppose.

    To IronMan2005, height is NOT an issue when casting this character. Tom Cruise never looks short in his movie roles. Plus he's in armor during action scenes. height is NOT an issue.

    Wizard sucks and can't cast a movie to save their lives.

    Fehr's got a heavy accent, and he's not in the leading man category. He's always a supporting player.

    I like Oded Fehr for Tony Stark. I know I'll hear the "he's good for Dr. Strange". Yeah, I know, but I think he'd play a great Tony Stark too.

    Well, i'm not sure who I do want for the role (Guy Pierce would be cool, as would Johnny Depp), I'll say who I dont want for the role.

    Tom Cruise. He just annoys me these days. I'm sick of hearing about the guy, and I'm sick of seeing the guy. He's also far too big to be tied down to sequels.

    Jude Law. Please no. This guy is suggested for just about every comic book role that comes up, and i'm getting sick of it. Jude Law for Superman. Jude Law for Batman. Jude Law for Joker. I dont get it, what do people see in him that make them think he could play just about any male lead in existance?! He's not that great of an actor.

    Mark Ruffalo. Man, I work at a video store, and every time I'm putting movies back on the shelves and come by the Just Like Heaven DVD's, I see his picture on the cover, and am filled with an unexplainable hatred of the guy. Just that smug look on his goofy face upsets me. How people could suggest him as someone as awesome as Tony Stark is beyond me.
