Assassins Creed FANCAST(By the SoulEater)

So, since Paramount is making an Assassins Creed game, I have taken it upon myself to take my dream cast out of its dusty closet for a live action casted movie.

Follow TheSoulEater:
By TheSoulEater - 7/9/2012


SO, we've all heard how Michael Fassbender is in the production, honestly, I'm glad he's in it, and he's a good actor.




HOWEVER, I do not want him playing Altair, cause I'm spoiled, and if any person was going to be played right. He would be a brilliant Templar main villain, but not Altair.


For the character of Altiar, my choose way back when was Jim Caveziel

NOW as for why, for one, if people are seriously casting Michael Fassbender for the role who looks nothing like Altair (in my opinion) I'd prefer someone else of advanced years who fits the role.

Now I understand that he is 40 or so now, however he still plays people in their 30's, as where Michael Fassbender IS in his plus 30's.

And if that doesn't pan out, he could always be an older version of Altiar

So if that choice does not swing through due to age, my second choice presently is Starkiller's Sam Witwer, he has the personality down, and can do the stunts easily, as well as have that killer instinct/feel to him on camera.

Now for his counterpart in our Century, Desmond Miles, descendant of Altiar in the line of assassins. I choose Shalim Ortiz from HEROES.

Photobucket

Now for the character of Lucy Stillman, who else but her voice and likeness: Kristen Bell.

For her boss, the evil Prof. Warren Vidic, I choose Jonathan Pryce.

Photobucket

For Altair's mentor back in the crusades, I choose the infamous Ian McShane as Al Maulim

Photobucket
Photobucket

For the former Templar and later love of Altair, the Maiden Knight Maria Thorpe, I choose Lucy Griffiths from BBC's Robin Hood

Photobucket

for Altair's former one armed partner, I choose Oscar Isaac as Malik.

Photobucket

for the Templar's leader, the Ruthless French Knight Roberte De Sable, I choose Mark Strong.

Damn- this is a seriously excellent fan cast.

I LOVE the Caveziel choice, and I think with him in it, the age issue goes right out the window.
Starkiller is a perfect back-up.

Ian McShane leading the assassins is inspired
Well done!

@RobGrizzly Grand!

Thank you!
STARKILLER21 - 7/10/2012, 12:17 AM
@TheSoulEater, this is an EPIC Fancast, I like Jesus as and Assassin lol. Ian McShane is PERFECT for Al Maulim, I seen previous fancasts for this game and MANY chose Christopher Lee as Al Maulim. He woul have been great for the role but the dude is 80 some and is the same age as my grandfather.
Still Sam Witwer can pull of Altiar as he has that look to pull it off and Mark Strong as Roberte De Sable is AWESOME.

I saw someone put that Timothy Olyphant for De Sable but some people are still PISSED of how he played HITMAN, wouldn't blame them. Still Mark Strong is still a FAR better actor and can NAIL the role of De Sable.

GREAT Cast again and keep it up (givng a thumbs a up), I am just finishing my UNCHARTED Trilogy Fancast, I hope you check it out when I finish it.

I haven't been a real big follower of Assassin's Creed, but I'm impressed that big names are being sought for the big screen feature. Cast is pretty impressive (Sam Witwer is class and would be a good pick for the main hero).

Hey, how about you come and check my fancast for Spider-Man. It already debuted and just got buried by the outpouring of fancasts the past 2 days.
TheSoulEater - 7/10/2012, 2:13 AM
@STARKILLER21

I most certainly will! And i was considering putting Timothy Olyphnant as Sable. I may put him up.

@RoadDogXXIV

I will if you tell me how to link people to your fancasts like that
Hellsing - 7/10/2012, 3:39 AM
sorry but your Altair pick just fails on every level not trying to be a dick but how about casting an actor with middle eastern heritage. Having some one like Fassbender allows the opportunity to cast an unknown as Altair.
TheSoulEater - 7/10/2012, 4:30 AM
....how is Michael Fassbender even remotely better then Caveziel when Caveziel LOOKS and has PLAYED a middle eastern man a total of twice and Fassbender was a Scottish german spartan who's only tan was due to color correction saturation on a CGI plain?
Hellsing - 7/10/2012, 6:25 AM
What the [frick] are you even talking about. I don't think I mentioned any where that Fassbender should play altair, I want a complete unknown and fassbender as desmond. And its my personal perferance that I don't want to see a 40 year old white man playing a 24 year old syrian.
Lewis25 - 7/10/2012, 6:45 AM
I like all of your choices except I think Desmond, Altair,and Ezio should all be played by the same actor.
Caviezel is too old to play these characters.
Sam Witwer is a good choice but I think JAke Gyllenhal could pull off all three characters.

replace the "[" and "]" with a "<" and ">".
RoadDogXXIV - 7/10/2012, 8:08 AM
By the way, that link was to my old cast. So here's my Spider-Man cast.
TheSoulEater - 7/10/2012, 11:14 AM
@Hellsing my apologies, yes I can see an unknown as Altiar and personally would prefer that, its just that with Fassbender its obvious they want a stary cast, and if they're going that route or age group based off of his choice, i think the actors I selected in their stead work better.

@Lewis25 I just really don't want Jake Gyllenhall ever near the role of a middle eastern man again...

Hellsing - 7/10/2012, 1:22 PM
@TheSoulEater maybe I wasn't clear enough in my first comment so I apologize too but with out a doubt if they do go older I don't have a problem with Caveziel dudes a bonafide bad ass in Person of Interest, and also I can only see him as Punisher especially since Marco Checcheto draws him in the current books just reminds me of Caveziel but rest of the cast is damn fine one.

and I don't know if you have played deus ex human revolution but they just announced that the movie version of it is in the works http://uk.ign.com/articles/2012/07/10/deus-ex-movie-in-the-works if you have played the game then I would be very interested in seeing a fan cast done by you of it would be cool.
l0rdleg0las - 7/10/2012, 3:07 PM
alright. i have never seen anything with Witwer aside from Smallville and i didn't care for him on that show. so i am not really getting all the love this guy gets for basically any male character in all fancasts.

so can someone let me know of a movie of his i can check out so i can understand why he is suddenly the flavor of the month?
MrBlueSky - 7/10/2012, 5:50 PM
@l0rdleg0las He's on the American version of Being Human and was the voice of Starkiller in Star Wars: The Force UnLeashed.
Lewis25 - 7/10/2012, 6:02 PM
@l0rdleg0las, check out the U.S. version of the show Being Human, also the first season of Dexter he is in a few episodes.
MrCameron - 7/10/2012, 7:13 PM
Good cast, buy c'mon man, give Fassbender a chance. He could get tan and dye his hair black.

Anyway, your cast is really good. You should do a Red Dead Redemption fancast.
nowtheresaBATman - 7/10/2012, 7:28 PM
stellar casting SoulEater!
DDD - 7/11/2012, 1:04 AM
This is simply BADASS, @SOULEATER!

I love your ideas here!

If they have FASSBENDER as ALTAIR, then what
a terrible piece of casting!

FASSBENDER is fantastic but ALTAIR, no way!

SAM WITWER? YES WAY!
DDD - 7/11/2012, 1:06 AM
Say, why don't they just cast FASSBENDER
as everybody in every movie from now on!

Give me a frakking break!!!
STARKILLER21 - 7/11/2012, 1:55 AM
Michael Fassbender has been confirmed to play Desmond in the ASSASSIN Creed Film. Just to let you guys know, it is on ign.com, may not be true but sounds like it's true.

@TheSoulEater my Uncharted Fancast is on the site if you wanna check it out. The link to my Fancast is below.

TheSoulEater - 7/11/2012, 2:30 AM
@DDD Agreed, as much as i love him, he seems to be in these fancasts....all the time...as everybody. And for Altair? Just no.

@Starkiller21 Cool to know. I'm actually more accepting of him as a descendant of Altair in the 21st century then Altair himself, but even then my pickyness regarding this series would want someone else, BUT I'll take him being Desmond without a whine if thats the other option to him actually being altair.

@Furrerminator
I love Michael Fassbender, but here's the thing, I see him in the Assassins Creed hood, I think, Crusader, Templar, even with a...tan? I mean yes i've seen him with dark hair and a tan in 300 but again, they were all Scottish/English cgi color-corrected greeks, I kept waiting for them to paint their faces blue and sack Rome.

Sam Witwer with a scar and a tan, I can believe in the Assassins Creed Hood, and can totally picture giving off the bad ass and impatient mixed with resourceful and vengeful Altair personality.
DDD - 7/12/2012, 6:26 AM
@SOULEATER, it's not that I hate MICHAEL FASSBENDER,
he's simply amazing but HOLLYWOOD is over-using him
and I hate to see him miscast or wasted in a role!

FASSBENDER is like a fine wine, he should be used
only in good occasions and sparingly.
He's this generations SIR LAWRENCE OLIVIER!
