I dont know about you but i grew up in the 80's...my favorite thing was the Thundercats..loved them 2 death..i had every action figure..still do, their kept on my shelf now...I would LOVE to See a Live action Movie..This is who i would cast-

ThunderCats:
Lion O-Matthew McConaughey or Paul Walker
Cheetara- Rebecca Romijn or Charlize Theron or Sarah Polley
Tygra- Rick Yune
Panthro- Ving Rhames

Cast some Child actors as wilykit and Wilykat..
Snarf would have to be all CGI, with Jack Blacks voice.

Mumm-Ra- Gary Oldman or Sam Rockwell
 
wasnt he in a couple of B martial arts movies.
 
Lion O- Vin Diesel

Cheetara- Hale Berry

Tygra- Val Kilmer

Panthro- Cuba Gooding Jr

Snarf - CGI, with Owen Wilson's voice.

Mumm-Ra- Eric Bana
 
i'm not joking, Billy Blanks would be perfect, he beat up Hulk Hogan and the NWO trying to save Rowdy Roddy Piper a while back.
 
I know, but it's still fun to watch, well it used to be fun to watch when it was about wrestling and not about who can do the best acting sketch.

My God they actually look like the Thundercats but who is the young girl and the guys foe Tygra?????
 
Brian Van Holt was actually in plenty of movies, but only had small parts in them, like Black Hawk Down, Confidence and The Recruit. I was actually amazed how much he looked like Tygra when I stumbled upon that picture.

Mika Boorem (that's the "young girl" you were talking about, right?) has also been in lots of movies (16, according to IMDB), including Hearts In Atlantis and Blue Crush. I dunno if she's the best for the part, but she's the best I could think of...
 
Definately see Jeremy Sumpter as Willykat...

I always thought Ron Pearlman for Mumm-Ra transformed...
 
Trevor Morgan would make a decent Wilycat, the kid from Jurassic Park 3
 
Pearlman wouldn't be a bad choice for Mumm-Ra, but Wincott's got the edge on account of his voice. It is too creepy!

but liono shouldnt be bulkier than panthro, i like the rest apart from diesel.
 
Well Mumm-Ra is a weedy, decrepid guy and then when he transforms by the ancient powers of evil, he becomes this big, pretty muscular/bulky guy and a pretty different shaped head too...

So that's why I said Ron Pearlman for Mumm-Ra transformed because I think he has the very look and then you could just get some good voice actor for the normal Mumm-Ra and just dub the voice over Ron...

What about the casting of the Mutants; Slithe, Monkian, Jackalman and Vultureman?

I can't think of anyone really... Unless Bill Nighy for Vultureman... I think he'd make a good Mumm-Ra actually... he has that 'weedy' thing going on...

It's a shame the original voice actor of Snarf passed away otherwise he could have done Snarf, if they were to make a movie...

I can see Jack Black doing Snarf mroe than Owen Wilson but he would be cool too... What about Sean William Scott?
 
I think Jack Black would actually be a lot better as one of the mutants, cuz I just can't see anything about him that is as innocent and harmless as Snarf. That dude's got a wicked voice! Use it on a wicked character... I don't even know if Wilson would be better. Frankly, I can't think for a good voice for Snarf. I just think Black would be a lot better as one of the mutants.
 
Jack Black would be good for Slithe...
 
right now, Ving Rhames for Panthro is the only fairly OBIVOUS choice.

and I'd be the first in line for a Thundercats movie.
