TheWisemanWB -> Common Sense (18/6/2013 9:51:03 AM)

How about a Scottish actor? Make sense to anyone else?




Morganafromka -> Richard Madden for the Highlander (18/6/2013 9:52:54 AM)

I guess it would be a wise choice and an interesting part for Richard. He is of Scottish descent, he knows how to hold a sword, and might be both available and interested))




Porter -> Richard Madden would be an excellent choice... (18/6/2013 9:58:28 AM)

...he is a quality actor. Thank god it's not Reynolds anymore. Unfortunately if the producers were dumb enough to consider him in the first place, it'll most likely be Vin Diesel next.




Dannybohy -> RE: Ryan Reynolds Off Highlander (18/6/2013 10:01:49 AM)

Excellent! now they can get on the phone to Colin Farrell and get him onboard instead!!




Artoo -> RE: Ryan Reynolds Off Highlander (18/6/2013 10:42:57 AM)

Thank fuck for that! I like Ryan Reynolds but casting him as Connor Mcleod in Highlander is nothing short of very, very silly! Even in the original film you had a Frenchman playing a Scotsman and a Scotsman playing a Spaniard, so we've had all the associated silly that we can possibly take when it comes to Highlander thankyouverymuch!

Cast Gerard Butler as Connor Mcleod and Antonio Banderas as Ramirez and jobs a goodun!





Hugh_Fran -> Scottish please (18/6/2013 12:29:28 PM)

Seriously! Why would an all American like Ryan Reynolds even be considered to play a Scottish Character? They need a Scotsman for this gig

Lambert is French! I don't think it matters in the slightest so long as they can pull off a decent Scottish accent for the flashback scenes.




bluedub -> scottish actor (18/6/2013 7:34:15 PM)

yes because christopher lambert was so scottish

Doesn't sound too bad. Banderas is getting on now. Maybe a touch young, but make up can sort that. Only thing I'm not too sure about with Butlers size. Last thing I saw him in he was still quite bulky. I for one don't really want to see a McLeod that's too big built. Other than that, butler could do pretty well I think.

Could always go with Ewan McGregor instead? He looks a little fresh faced though IMO........

He is Canadian, yes, not American.

It would be better to have an actual Scotsman in the role for a change, though. At least then the accent would be authentic.

What say you about Colin Farrell ?. Would not be a stretch for Colin to do Scottish! or just change the story to an Irish Clan?. I just picture in my head the actor turning toward the camera (the end fight scene from original style) and saying " There can be only one!" . and quite frankly I get wood when I imagine Farrell delivering that line! I think he would own it !! Now.....who would make the best Kurgan!




elab49 -> RE: Scottish please (20/6/2013 9:20:09 AM)

Someone short enough to go toe to toe to the quite short, and therefore possibly not entirely appropriate, Farrell?

Are you saying Farrell is too short!! I never considered him particularly short! how tall is he!. That would just make the casting of Kurgan easier surely! I would cast Joe Manganiello :) I want to see him play a bad guy! and they are clearly not going to do the right thing and cast him in the Assasins Creed movie so he needs the movie work damn it!!

HE IS 5FT 10" !! thats not short!!! I am 6ft! myself and do not consider 5,10 as short! I guess if are you like 6ft 5 or above then 5,10 might be considered short!




elab49 -> RE: Scottish please (20/6/2013 9:42:37 AM)

That's a lot of exclamation marks [:D]

He doesn't look 5"10.

The reboot is pointless, a given. But I think they'd be missing a trick if they didn't consider recasting Clancy Brown.

I agree!. I would rather they spent the money remastering the original, removing the wires ffs! and redoing the other effects , especially in the end scene!
