FANCAST: The X-men (Updated)
A week or two ago, I did a shorter X-men cast...And, some members wanted more characters...So, for the last week or so, I have been working on a much larger cast, where I have new characters, or I have changed picks from the last one!
By, tweeeeenkies3! Enjoy :)
Professor X: Colm Feore
WHY: I have been doing a lot of research for new picks, for characters, and I went through multiple people, while casting Xaver. I went with Colm Feore.
He is definitely the spitting image of Professor X. He has that squared jawline, great cheek bones, and very "smart" look, which is what you need while casting Xavier! He is a fantastic actor, with a great voice for the role!
I think he is just perfect!
Cyclops: Matthew Fox
WHY: For Scott, I went with the great actor, Matthew Fox! Best known for his work on the hit show LOST...While casting Cyclops, I had a couple of actors I thought about, but only two stuck out to me. The first one was too short, while this pick is a great size for the role!
He is tall (Standing at 6'2), has the perfect face, hair, and body. Though I never wanted Scott to be too big, I think Matthew looks great for a movie version of him! Plus, he is a great actor!
Jean Grey: Rachel McAdams
WHY: She has grown so much over the years, into one of the best actresses around, at this moment! She has shown she can handle almost any genre. She can do comedy, drama, serious, some action, you name it, she can most likely pull it off! I did change her hair and eye color, to match Jean, to show how perfect she looks...And, it worked! She looks utterly gorgeous, rocking the red hair! I think with some combat training, a script, and some CGI, we would have the PERFECT Jean Grey pick!
Storm: Naomie Harris
WHY: I chose, Pirates of the Caribbean actress, Naomie Harris! She played the goddess/nymph Calypso is Pirates, and she was just great....I think if she can pull of whatever accent that was, she could also do African! She was also in the movie 28 Days Later, and she pulled off some great dramatic and action parts! She has proven herself as an actress, and is just perfect. She is only 35, so she is a good age for the role of an African mutant/goddess!
Wolverine: Jon Bernthal
WHY: Jon Bernthal! I used him in my X-force cast, and I did keep him...I think his character on The Walking Dead, has shown the correct attitude needed for Wolverine! The episode, where he beat the crap out of ED, really showed he has what it takes to pull off Logan's true personality! It is really difficult to find an actor, who is 5'3, and perfect...Christian Kane is perfect, but has become somewhat overused...So, I use this pick, because only me and one other user has this pick!
Emma Frost: Sara Foster
WHY: While casting this, I wanted a much more unknown pick, who has great potential to be great...I went with actress and model, Sara Foster!
I have seen her play a vein "bitch" character before, as well as a more heroic figure...So, I think she could pull it off! She definitely has the correct look. The blue eyes, goden hair, perfect body...She is Emma Frost!
Iceman: Dave Franco
WHY: For Iceman, I wanted someone who could be serious and comedic...So, I chose Dave Franco! He has the perfect look! He is not overly handsome, but not ugly....I think it is a perfect combination for Iceman's character! After watching a lot of his stuff, I figured he would be perfect! He has everything down, he would just need a good team of fellow mutants, CGI, and a kick ass script!
Beast: Michael C. Hall (Original Pick)
WHY: Yes, I used Daredevil as Beast! And, I don't care. He is perfect. Sure, he would be a cool Daredevil, but for me, he looks, sounds, and acts much more like Beast! He has the dark, brooding voice, that fits Beast's character so well! Plus, he is a smart guy, from what I have heard...He sure can play the smart type! If he were to beef up some, he would be great!
Angel: Ryan Phillipe
WHY: Ryan is my new choice...I had Jamie Bamber in my X-force cast, but he did not fit with this cast...I think Ryan has the perfect "pretty boy" face, that works very well when you are dealing with this type opf character. The pretty boy, rich, slightly arrogant character! After I watched him in the Lincoln Lawyer, I thought he would be a great pick...He was definitely this character.
Except, Angel is not evil!
Rogue: Caitlin Stasey
WHY: My new pick for Rogue! I was tired of Ashley Greene, though she is not a bad pick, I needed to find a new actress...So, I did my research, and found this wonderful young woman!! I watched her in her best known action movie, "Tomorrow, When the War Began:....She was stunning! She knows how to get down and dirty, that's for sure...She pulled off great drama, action, and was very convincing in the role. So, I used her!
She could probably rock the dark brown hair, and white streaks!
Gambit: Gaspard Ulliel
WHY: While casting Gambit, I was looking for someone who was dashingly handsome, suave, and could kick ass...I chose Gaspard Ulliel, and french actor. Though he is french, I think that could totally translate over to a cajun accent! He is 27, so a little bit older than my Rogue pick, which is just fine with me! He looks young, and has a great look.
Totally Remy! I think he could pull it off, with great ease!
Colossus: Liam Hemsworth
WHY: I did not want to use a 30 year old actor, because I have a 20 year old as Kitty, and that would be just creepy....So, I chose the fantastic young actor, Liam Hemsworth! He was ALMOST Thor, but he didn't get the chance to break out of the teenage girl themed crap....I think he would fit well here. Sure, he is not overly large, but good god, he is almost there! With some physical training, and even voice training, for a Russian accent, he would be great!
Kitty Pryde: Shailene Woodley (Original Pick)
WHY: This is 100% original! I did not want to use Lyndsy Fonseca anymore, because she is used so often, so I started researching good, young actresses, around the correct height. I fell upon a movie called The Descendants, released last year...Shailene had a lead role, and she was FANTASTIC! She has been nominated for oscars, and has won multiple awards for her performance!
She was stunning in it! She deserves great roles, and I think this role would fit her so well. She is Kitty!
Nightcralwer: Jamie Dornan (Original Pick)
WHY: I chose Jamie Dornan, who is original...I used him in my X-force cast, and kept him! I have only watched him in Once Upon a Time, but he was so great! He can pull off dramatic roles, so I think he should put his hands into some action! I think Nightcrawler fits him very well! He has a great body and facial structure that is exactly like Nightcrawlers!...He is not too skinny and not large. I think he should be a very lean character! With some physical training, along with voice training he would be perfect! He is british, so I think he could pull off a German accent well!
Psylocke: Maggie Q.
WHY: I have seen so many of Maggie's movies, and watched her perform martial arts, and sword work...She is amazing! I started watching her in Nikita, right after christmas, and I decided she is the perfect Psylocke! She can work with swords, can kick ass, and can add depth to the character very well! She is not original, but it is a great choice, so why fix something that isn't broken?
I even change her hair and eye color to purple, for a better visual, so you can see how she looks rockin' the purple hair!
Havo: Trevor Donovan (Original Pick)
WHY: I thought about using him for Angel, but decided, he was good for Havok as well! Watching him grow as an actor has been great! He started off playing only playboy, douche bags, but can truly pull off most characters! He is a fantastic young actor! He has a great face, body, voice, and skills acting wise! I think him and my Polaris pick, Jessy Schram would work very well together, as well!
Polaris: Jessy Schram (Original Pick)
WHY: My original pick for Polaris! I wanted an actress who was not very well known, but fantastic! She is great in Falling Skies...She has a very innocent face but is able to kick some ass, which would play well with this character! Watching her in Once Upon a Time was great as well. She pulled off some amazing dramatic parts, and I think it would be great for her.
Dazzler: Alyson Michalka
WHY: One of the ONLY Disney stars to break loose from Disney, and actually become talented!
I chose this actress, because of her role in the show Hellcats. She was great. She is in the perfect shape, that would be needed for Dazzler. She is toned very well, and has the correct body shape.
Plus, she is an actress and dancer, which would just contribute to this character, because she is an actress and singer! I think she is perfect!
X-23: India Eisley (Original Pick)
WHY: My original pick for X-23...I used her in my X-force cast as well, and had very good feedback, so I did keep her! She looks EXACTLY like X-23! The eyes, the glare, the face, the hair, the body...EVERYTHING! She also was in training for the new Underworld movie, so she is fit already!
Deadpool: Devon Sawa (Original Pick)
WHY: Original as well....I used him in my X-force cast! Devon has grown into quite the actor over the years! He has proven he can do action (Nikita) and do comedy (Nikita as well!)...He has a goofy nature while keeping hii kick ass stature, which is great for Deadpool! I think he is a great pick!
Domino: Eliza Dushku (Original Pick)
WHY: Yes, I have lost Olivia Wilde as Domino....Though I still think she is a great pick, I figured out she was not original...Sadly. So, I went with an original, kick ass, beautiful pick...Eliza Dushku. Yes, I use her as Catwoman, but if she were to play any Marvel character, it would HAVE TO BE Domino! She is perfection. She has the perfect body for Domino. I wanted someone already trained in hand-to-hand combat, and weaponry as well! Eliza does her own stunts, and can beat the poop out of anyone...She is the best!
Fantomex: Luke Evans (Original Pick)
WHY: My original pick for Fantomex!
I used Luke as Fantomex, in my X-force cast, and I am keeping him! Though he is not British, he is Welsh, which is actually pretty close, and he could pull the accent off easily.
This one was hard to cast...My intial pick is already Superman! Damn. But Luke is fantastic as well...He can act, do action, and can play douches rather well.
Wolfsbane: Rachel Hurd-Wood
WHY: I chose actress, Rachel Hurd-Wood, in the role of Wolfsbane...
Rachel is known for her role as Wendy Darling, in the 2003 movie, Peter Pan! Now at 21, I think she would be the perfect Wolfsbane, in the current comics! In Tomorrow, When the War Began, she pulled of some great action, and worked well in a team. I think her British accent could easily be made into an Irish accent...She is also gorgeous, and rocks the red hair!
Elixir: Alexander Ludwig
WHY: I chose young, 19 year old actor, Alexander Ludwig, in the role of Elixir! I chose him based off of his performance in Race to Witch Mountain...He was fantastic, especially since it was his first leading role. Now that he has grown up some, and has been working out, a lot, I think he would be a great pick for this character!
The once snobby teenager, turned mutant! Plus, him and Rachel would work well together!
Pixie: Kathryn Prescott
WHY: I chose the young, British actress, Kathryn Prescott, as X-men's pink haired fairy mutant, Pixie! Yes, Pixie is welsh, but someone British would be ok with me! I went through multiple actresses, but my 3 remaining picks were, Emma Watson, Pixie Lott, and Kathryn!
In the end, I decided that Emma was overused, Pixie was not experienced enough, and Kathryn was perfection! She has such a sweet, yet dark look, which would play well with this character..Especially Pixie AFTER she lost part of her soul...I did do some manipulating, on the photo, to make her red hair, pink! She dyed her hair blood red for her hit show, Skins!
Lifeguard: Teresa Palmer (Original pick)
WHY: I chose the young actress, Teresa Palmer, as X-men's awesome character, Lifeguard! Her adaptive powers are amazing...I think Teresa could make a smaller role, great, just because she is an amazing actress!
Lifeguard is Australian, and I casted an Australian...Amazing!
Plus, she is an excelent action actress (Proven in I am Number Four)...I think she would definitely bring this character to life!
Namor: Jason Behr
WHY: I chose 38 year old actor, Jason Behr, to take on the role of Namor, Marvels first mutant!
After watching Jason in Roswell, Skinwalkers, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I thought he was perfection! He has a very squared jaw, great build, for namor, and tense eyes...I think he would be great!
He can handle action very well...I think he could do this role very well!
Boom Boom: Amber Heard
WHY: Though Amber is lead material, I don't think there is any other character in the X-men, other than Boom Boom she could pull off... I think she is the perfect pick, because of her personality in Drive Angry, and her looks, that she naturally has...She is just sexy! She could pull off the more skanky tyoe character, if needed. She is the epitome of Boom Boom!
Cloak: Eugene Jones
WHY: For Tyrone, I wanted someone young, not well known, but extremely talented!
I used my first pick, Eugene Jones, from TowelHead! He was a great actor in that, and I think he could pull off this character, rather well! I think he has a great look as well...He is not overly large (Muscularity wise), but he is not skinny, which is a great contribution for Cloak's character!
Dagger: Amanda Michalka (Original pick)
WHY: I went original on this one, and use Amanda Michalka, Alyso Michalka's little sister!
I chose her for Dagger, because of her dance background. Tandy (Dagger), is a dancer, and that is how she is able to move the way she does. I think Amanda has broken out into the true world of acting, and has become fantastic! She could definitely pull this character off! It also helps that she is gorgeous!
Magneto: Anthony Stewart Head
WHY: Yes, Gile is my pick! In Buffy, though he was good in a few episodes Anthony showed he could play evil characters...I think it would be great here, because he is not really evil, just the anti-Xavier! Ane, even though he is not German, I think his British accent could be changed, easily! So, I think he could do it! He is easily my favorite choice in this role!
I would love to see him break out into another huge role again!
Mystique: Charlize Theron
WHY: I know, I used her in my Sailor Moon cast...But, I don't care! She is perfect for Mystique! She is 36, so a good age for a mutant who is nearly immortal, and is around 100, now. She has done some great action in her time (Aeon Flux and Hancock). She has the perfect look for what I picture movie-verse Mystique would look like.
Not muscular, rather skinny, because she can naturally kick butt, does not have a hugge pair of breasts, because she is just gorgeous, and has the most appealing face for the role!
She is great!
Scarlet Witch: Gemma Arterton
WHY: I wanted a very euro-exotic looking woman, who could act, and was drop dead gorgeous! I chose the beautiful actress, Gemma Arterton! I love her in everything I have ever watched her in! She has become a new favorite actress of mine! This would be a great role for her to show a different type of acting...To show off her dramatic, and action skills, along with her supernatural beauty!
She rocks the Scarlet red as well!
Quicksilver: Cam Gigandet
WHY: I honestly DON'T LIKE Cam...He is not that great! But, he fits this role pretty well...He can play douchey, cocky, bastards pretty well, so I used him! I have watched many of his movies, where he usually plays a villain type role, that is great, when casting Quicksilver! I think him and Gemma could pull off being twins, even though he is 28, he looks much younger than that!
Toad: BJ Novak
WHY: I watch him in the Office, and he just looks dirty...That is why I chose him. He has a dirty look, and just looks like you can't trust him! That is perfect for the Toad. Nasty.
Pyro: Riley Smith (Original Pick)
WHY: Original! I think he is an ok actor, but this is not a LARGE role anyways...I think he could do it, based off his looks and what I have seen him do as an actor. He just looks like Pyro!
Sabretooth: Alexander Skarsgard
WHY: I love him as the villain type character, in True Blood...He has shown great progress as an actor, and should totally take on a CBM role! I think his character in Straw Dogs was perfect. He played the psychotic killer pretty well, and I think he could do it again, except this time, with more action!
He is great!
Avalanche: Shane West (Original Pick)
WHY: I hate this character, actually haha! I chose, Shane West. He is a great actor, who can pull of this type of character. He has that natural bad guy look on his face, and it makes me angry, just like Avanlanche makes me angry...It is perfect! I really like him in Nikita though!
Mister Sinister: Viggo Mortensen
WHY: I did not use the fan pick, I used a more original pick...I chose Viggo Mortensen. He is a wonderful actor, of Welsh descent.
I think he has a very evil, and SINISTER look, that would work so well for a character like Mister Sinister! I have seen him play a villain before, and he was wonderful....I think he could do it again, except he would have powers, and be a little more insane!
Apocalypse: Arnold Vosloo
WHY: Again, I went more original, instead of using the fan favorite!
I chose the South African actor, Arnold Vosloo, because of his roles in The Mummy! He was a great actor in them, and could definitely play this role very well if given the chance!
He can pull off the action as well, so that is just a huge plus on his part!
I HOPE YOU LIKED IT!
If you want me to add anyone, just tell me, and I will!
