Dream Cast: Final Fantasy VII

This is hands down the most popular Final Fantasy game to date, although not my favorite. I respect the story and attitude of the game and believe I have found a solid cast who could portray these characters with pride.

Cloud Strife – Alexander Skarsgard



For the spiky haired hero I went with True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard. Why? He’s blond, has a very good look and is a great actor. Cloud is one of the most iconic video game characters, so I had to go with an actor who could properly display the wide array of emotions that Cloud goes through.

Sephiroth – Luke Goss



Sephiroth is another one of those Iconic characters, but in all honestly he was a dick, and kind of a bitch. Luke Goss’ portrayal of Prince Nuada in Hellboy II helped me chose this role with ease.

Tifa – Summer Glau



Tifa has to be sexy, peppy, and a complete bad ass. Firefly’s Summer Glau is perfect for the main love interest in this movie.

Aeris – Alexis Bledel



Aeris is confusing. She’s supposed to be beautiful– yet have an aura of kindness around her that you can almost feel. Gilmore Girls’ Alexis Bledel fits this role better than any actress in Hollywood.

Barret – Ving Rhames



Barret is a tough as hell bad ass who has a gun arm. Strap a mini chain gun to Dawn Of The Dead’s Ving Rhames and you have a perfect Barret

Vincent – Jared Leto



Vincent was ahead of his time: a brooding young vampire-esque man who is basically the worlds first emo. Fight Club’s Jared Leto does emo like a champ, and even though I’m not a huge fan of the actor, he would nail this role.

Red XIII – Ian Mckellen



All you need is an epic voice for Red, the rest can be done in CGI. No voice is more epic than Gandalf himself, Ian Mckellen.

Cid – Matthew McConaughey



I know I’m gonna get hell for this, but Cid is my favorite FF7 character. Southern charm and a bad ass pilot all wrapped up in one rugged package, Ol’ Matthew McConaughey from Sahara will own this role.

Yuffie – Brenda Song



For Yuffie I wanted a cute girl who can do cool ninja stuff, since Yuffie is a cute girl who can do ninja stuff, so Brenda Song of Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior is my choice.

Caith Sith – Steve Buscemi



Another voice, only this time we see the face in cameos. Steve Buscemi’s voice is perfect for the fast talking spy. Con Air’s Buscemi can easily fake a Scottish accent until it is revealed he’s actually Reeve of the Turks.

Zack – Karl Urban



Zack would only be in cameo flashbacks throughout the movie until (spoiler) it’s revealed that all of Cloud’s memories were his. Karl Urban (Star Trek, Resident Evil, Chronicles of Riddick, Pathfinder…) would do great as the awesome warrior and Aeris’ lost love, Zack.

Reno and Rude – Justin Chatwin and Christopher Judge (Respectively, pictures left to right Rude then Reno)



These guys are kind of the comedic relief for the evil side. The straight laced and quiet, yet strong, Rude would be portrayed by Stargate’s Christopher Judge while the sporadic, loud and quick Reno would be portrayed by Dragonball: Evolution’s Justin Chatwin

sweet cast! :)
Skarsgard would make a great older Cloud
if they ever made an adaption I wouldn't be surprised if they went younger with the cast though

@ Alexander Skarsgard I do not like as cloud(love as an actor). You need someone who looks younger and WAY shorter. The rest are great. I probably would of gone with someone like Chris Pine for Cloud. If Goss didn't work out I would go With Skarsgard for Sephiroth his character in True Blood reminds me of Sephiroth. I could Honestly see Pine and Urban as sparing with big ass swords.
