Actors for the movie.
 
If you would to make a K1 movie who would you choose as you're main actors?

I would choose:

Revan- Hard one, It would be between Chris Bale and Gerard Butler for me.

Chris Bale

Gerard Burtler
Bastila- I think Jessica Biel can fit well on the paper here.
http://i148.photobucket.com/albums/s...ssica_biel.jpg
Candeorus- I think I would choose Ron Perlman for the job.
http://i148.photobucket.com/albums/s...91/perlman.jpg
Carth Onasi- Hmm hard, I wouldn't like to chose someone that looks young so I would provably choose Benicio Del Toro.
http://i148.photobucket.com/albums/s...ro_2204215.jpg
Juhani- Damn very hard, I really don't know who to pick ... Rebecca Romijn? Don't know.

Jolee- haha Morgan Freeman could be cool to see, but I don't know.

Darth Malak- Timothy Olyphant looks good for the job.

JesusIsGonnaOwnSatan 06-15-2009 05:18 PM

i have no idea. but you should put pictures up of the roles, and the actors. ;)

Salzella 06-15-2009 05:52 PM

Samuel L. Jackson as Jolee
http://www.tvoneblogs.com/thespin/wp...oldova_org.jpg
Kiera Knightley as Bastila

Soogz 06-15-2009 10:20 PM

Kate Beckinsale has to be Bastila, haha.

As for the others, pretty much just a toss up. No real idea

cire992 06-15-2009 10:29 PM

Or use CG, then they can look and act exactly how you want them to. No offense hollywood.

*Points to Signature* That's the hottest woman alive ;)

but Kate is my number 2 :)

Fredi 06-15-2009 11:31 PM

haha Megan is my #2, Kate is my #1. :p

Totenkopf 06-16-2009 02:03 AM

Since many of the pics have already been put up, I won't bother. I agree that Beckinsale would probably make the better choice for Bastila. Seems a little closer in appearance and Bastila has a kind of Brit inflection to her voice. Perlman can project the right amount of gruffness for Ordo. B/c he looks a little closer to JB, I'd go with Sam. However, I think Morgan could probably project the reflective moroseness of JB a bit better. Besides, Jackson WAS a little stiff as Mace. If still alive, Frank Oz as Master Vandar (afterall, he's a yoda clone). Not really sure about Carth, Revan, Malak, Mission or Juhani (esp if you use that godawful cathar appearance). Since HK is a droid, go with the guy that voiced "him". Of corse Zalbaar could be just about any 7' actor in hollywood that needs work. :lol:

IMO he looks nothing like Carth! But a bit like Raphael Sbarge's character in Mass Effect, Kaidan Alenko:http://images.iml.pl/crpg/mass_effec...ety/kaidan.png
ah, actually... on second thought... no.

:D if it weren't for the pictures, i wouldnt know what they looked like. And i wouldnt be bothered to look them up! :xp:
but still, hollywood make up artists are insanely skilled. even if we can't see any resemblance, they could probably pull it off.


this isn't from the games, but it is from the same time period...

Brendan Fraser....

Lord Spitfire 06-16-2009 05:19 AM

This is a pretty fun thread.

For me, there's one definite person perfect for Revan, and that would be Christian Bale, I think he would suit the part perfectly; if not him than . . . well, I don't know.

For Bastila, it has to be Kate Beckinsale; and even better, she's actually British, along with being to hottest person alive.

Carth, then Raphael Sbarge! The reason I love Carth so much is his badass voice, and you can't take that out.

Jolee; well, who else but the guy who is in almost every single damn moive! ;) Morgan Freeman

Canderous is a tough one. when it comes to character, I'd say the way Arnold Schwazenegger acted in the beginning of Kindergarden Cop would be pretty cool. Or just a buff guy with Hugh Laurie's voice.

HK-47 - well, there's one person who I think would be unthinkable perfect for the voice; Johny Depp!

Salzella 06-16-2009 05:40 AM

I chose SLJ for Jolee because I thought it would be hilarious if he reprised his Pulp Fiction role in a Star Wars context.

"I am fed up of these mother****ing czerka slavers on this mother****ing Kashyyyk!"

PS. I prefer my Bastila choice - she's British, and amazingly pretty. What's more, she's great at playing snobbish, uptight characters.

Fredi 06-16-2009 11:37 AM

I was thinking of Patrick Wilson as well for Carth. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrick_Wilson_(actor)

Demongo 06-16-2009 12:44 PM

Carth-->Ewan McGregor
Jolee-->Samuel L. Jackson(not sure)
Bastilla-->Kirsten Dunst maybe

I'm not too sure abou the others....

Trench 06-16-2009 02:07 PM

If they did make a KotOR: The Movie, they would have to use CGI. That keeps the characters looking like their videogame selves, and c'mon, have you seen CGI nowadays. They could pass for real.

Totenkopf 06-16-2009 02:50 PM

Well, if they did CGI, they could probably stick with many of the VO cast from the game as well. By paying them scale, they could save a fair amount of money.

Don't you think it would be a bit strange, if they took actors who already played characters in Star Wars films and recast them as different characters?

Revan 411 06-16-2009 10:19 PM

You know, everyone says Kate Beckinsale for Bastila but I disagree, she's too old. Bastila is young, in her early to mid 20's.

I'd definitely hire Morgan Freeman as Jolee though. That guy ''fits'' the role perfectly. As for Revan, that's a tough one. Christian Bale could probably pull the role off, but I'm leaning more towards Tom Cruise. I've seen some of his movies, and that guy definitely has the potential for the role.

Carth is a hard choice. I would probably hire Raphael Sbarge as Carth. Because he has both the appearance and the voice. And everybody knows Sbarge's voice is epic.

As for everybody else, not sure. The thing is, if your making a movie adoption of a video game, the actors need to look like the characters and they need to fit the ''personality'' of the characters. You can't just go out there and hire somebody to play as Carth. It doesn't work like that. You need to take time with finding actors. George Lucas had quite a hard time finding actors for his movie: A New Hope. And most of the actors in that movie fitted the personality's of the characters. It worked out in the end.

Soogz 06-16-2009 10:31 PM

Goodness, I really don't like Christian Bale at all.... :/

Well maybe, but they look a bit different now:)

Ctrl Alt Del 06-17-2009 02:42 PM

Morgan Freeman IS Jolee. :carms:

HIGH ON PIE 14 06-17-2009 03:10 PM

Well nobody has mentioned Mission Vao yet so...

Summer Glau (also my avvy)

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/n...mer-glau61.jpg

or Hayden Panettiere
http://stupidcelebrities.net/wp-cont...panettiere.jpg

I think both could do the part well though Summer is the better actress imo.

~HOP

Fredi 06-17-2009 04:02 PM

Hmmm right, forgot about mission ... Summer Glau looks better for the job than Hayden.

Ibelin 06-17-2009 05:59 PM

Nice thread :)
And my compliment to the idea of Ron Pearlman being Caderous too. It's like they took his face and added some hair to make Canderous. :indif:
I think Gerald'd bette be admiral Saul and Revan's left for Christian Bale.
Who'd be Kreia? I really don't know.

A bit premature as she's in TSL and not KOTOR.

@HOP/Padawan--using the pic as reference of Glau re MV, I agree. Funny thing is, she almost looks kind of AI in that pic too.

Demongo 06-17-2009 07:38 PM

Talking about Mission, who would be the best as Zalbaar?

It doesn't really matter, since they'll either end up in a suit or replaced with CGI. And voice talent (for snarling?) isn't an issue either. ANYONE could play Zalbaar...

Darth Avlectus 06-17-2009 09:49 PM

Darth Bandon should be played by:

Mike Judge

Arrrgh! He be well suited, the handsome bastard. :smirk2:

Fredi 06-18-2009 06:23 PM

^^ He looks like Uthar too.

Darth Leo 06-18-2009 09:15 PM

I could see John Voight as Vrook Lamar...

Destiny's Pawn
 
AKA: The version I run with.

Kairi Niko/Revan - Zhang Ziyi.
Show spoiler

What did it for me was not the dozen-odd martial arts fantasy movies, but Memoirs of a Geisha. Y'see, unlike amny versions of Revan, Kairi is quiet and a bit on the somber side. Had she not been Force-Sensitive, she would have been a fine senator or diplomat, and up until the Big Reveal, still pretty much thought of herself as Bastila's translator and aide. In her Geisha role, Zhang carried herself with a certain sadness and longing, and it's a similar heaviness that I see in both Darth Revan and her "successor," Kairi.

Bastila - Kiera Knightly. We know she could handle the SW universe and fighting scenes, as her first major role was Sabe. She's got the face for it, definitely.

Canderous - I'm so agreeing with Ron Perlman here. I keep seeing him as a character with great dignity and presence, one who has a very strong arc of growth from a jaded, paid thug to the future "king" of his people. Perlman does his best work in genre work, usually under a ton of makeup. And hey, I'm old-school enough to remember Vincent. The guy's got some range.

Jolee - Freeman would be interesting, but something about Richardson's delivery reminds me of Avery Brooks.

http://www.geocities.com/Hollywood/8914/nbaf.gif



Mission - Come to think on it, Hayden Panettiere could pull it off. The energy and the smile are definitely there. We'd have to up our sweet Twi'lek's age a bit, but who cares?

Darth Avlectus 06-19-2009 02:54 AM

^^^Care to offer at least a pic or two? :)

EDIT: Kewl. ;)

Serpentine Cougar 06-21-2009 01:56 AM

I agree with Perlman for Canderous and Timothy Olyphant for Darth Malak.

Summer Glau doesn't really look 15... Panettiere might fit the role better.

For Carth, I'd say, Jamie Bamber resembles him somewhat.

Totenkopf 06-21-2009 07:37 PM

Based on the pics, Panettiere has a somewhat broader looking face than Glau. Glau's more angular looking features (at least in that pic) seemed a closer match for Mission.
Bamber does make a decent match for Carth based on that pic.

ironheart 06-21-2009 08:20 PM

Personally, I think Bastila has GOT to be Bridget Regan.



She's the only reason I watched that Seeker show. And the whole time I was thinking, gee this chick reminds of someone.... Doh! Bastila! Throw an accent on her and she's perfect.

And I'm thinking Brendan Fraser for Revan (What? He's gotta have a sense of humor!) and Chris Bale for Carth (Angst, brood, angst!) and Ron Perlman is the perfect Canderous.
