    I was expecting Seth Rogen to be the one that no one liked. Lol.

    I think Seth Rogan could make a GREAT Ben Grimm. He's got the self-effacing sense of humor. He may be Canadian, but I think he could convince people he's a tough Jewish guy from Brooklyn. And he's physically big enough - he'd just need to lose a few pounds and hit the weights to look more like a football player.

    He may not fit an obvious mold, but I think he could do it.

    I've always thought Mark Strong could be a good Doom, he's a good actor and a voice that would sound good in the mask.

    I dunno about Rogen...I mean, I like him and all, but even now that he's in shape, he still strikes me as more of a laid-back "dude" type than a burly New Yawker. Doesn't really have the aggressiveness for that kind of persona. Maybe he could pull it off, but it would be against type to say the least.

    He does have the jaw for it, though.

    Even when reading comics Cumberbatch's voice is what I hear when Doom speaks.

    When watching Royal Pains one day my brother suggested the actor Ben Shenkman for Reed Richards. And I think he would be a great Reed!

    He's a bit tall but thats not a big issue.

    I like Daniel Radcliff as Reed. He's not to much younger then Teller, maybe a year or two.

    He's proved he's actually a pretty great actor in his last few roles, and he'd fit the character perfectly

    By far the best actor I've heard mentioned to be cast as Reed Richards to me was Greg Kinear... my brother said it in the early 2000's. If Marvel got the rights back Id love it he'd be cool to see opposite Robert Downey Jr as Tony. Everytime I see him now I think of Mr Fantastic

    Patrick Wilson is also a great choice.

    Mark Wahlberg, Joel Edgerton or Matt Damon as The Thing would both be alright to me, Wahlberg plays tough guy better.

    Efron as Human Torch would be a good fit or if he went against his usual type cast I think Michael Cera would be okay too he can play cocky well at times. Im pretty bad with younger actors though..

    as for Sue Storm Im really not too sure Kristen Bell or Naomi Watts lol

    I think Colin Hanks & Michelle Williams would both be great. Not Charlie for Doom though... I think his acting stinks.

    Alexis Denisof would be the perfect Reed Richards.

    Huh, you know what? I could totally see it, at least if your going for an older Reed.

    *resists urge to suggest Sue be played by Amy Acker with hair dye*
