MORTAL KOMBAT fan cast!

My fan cast for a future (faithful to the source material) MK film!

Follow Asterisk:
By Asterisk - 6/2/2011
Leonardo Dicaprio as Sub-Zero/Kuai Liang/Tundra


While this may seem like an odd choice to some, I believe that in a true dramatic Mortal Kombat movie, Dicaprio has the acting chops to pull off the torn hero of Sub-Zero.

Tom Hardy as Scorpion/Hanzo Hashashi

Hardy has proven himself as an AWESOME actor in films such as Inception and Bronson (awesome, by the way), Tom Hardy would be an amazing Scorpion, proven his acting abilities. On a side note, however, could someone point in the direction of a film with him doing an American accent? I want to know if can pull it off.

Jay Chou as Liu Kang

If you've seen The Green Hornet, you know how AWESOME this guy is. If you really want to know why Chou would be a perfect Liu Kang, watch him as Kato in The Green Hornet.

Liam Neeson as Raiden

I really don't understand why this hasn't been suggested before! Neeson is a WONDERFUL actor, and he and Ewan McGregor were the only good things about The Phantom Menace. Neeson pretty much screams Raiden. He looks like him, he has the acting ability to pull off a god, so why not?

Hugh Jackman as Noob Saibot/Bi-Han/(Elder) Sub-Zero

Hugh Jackman is best known for playing Wolverine, but the man is a very good actor, and imagine him as a STRAIGHT UP EVIL character, who doesn't give a damn about human life. He's willing to betray his own brother because of small matters, and kills Scorpion's family for the hell of it. Cool, right?

Djimon Hounso as Cyrax

Cyrax needs to be portrayed as an ultimate badass, and there is no one more badass than Djimon Hounso. His voice would also make for a great robot voice.

Mark Strong as Quan Chi

Mark Strong pretty much IS Quan Chi in my mind. He looks like him, and he's shown that he can pull off evil characters like Quan Chi. Imagine Strong with Quan Chi tattoos, hanging out with Tom Hardy as Scorpion, and you'll get why I love this choice.

Ray Park as Baraka

Ray Park is an awesome creature actor and martial artist. Put that together and you get a perfect Baraka.

I still need casting for Sektor, Shao Khan, Kung Lao, Reptile, Smoke, Kitana, Jade, Mileena, Sonya, and Kabal. Got any ideas?

how is it faithful if u have white guys play asians? lol i mean if they were white it would be great i mean dragonball evolution proved u cant jus make an asian with an asian name white

There is a canon explanation on why Noob and Sub-Zero look white. It's their mother, who was caucasian. It was Ed Boon who said that :/

As for Scorpion....I don't know, I like Tom Hardy and it seems like he could do it. It's not like he's going to take off his mask alot anyways. Unlike Dragonball Evolution, I'm casting for acting SKILL, not a so called "cool factor".

sub zero and Noob being played by white actors is ok I guess since there mothers caucasian and all but Scorpion sorry but no as god as an actor Tom Hardy is him playing a guy named Hanzo Hashashi doesn't work

why would you type cast based on race? i could care less what race a character is(kind of racist if you think about it), i just care how good an actor is.
Weedbeater - 6/3/2011, 11:44 AM
actually i might. its just how i didn't mind a black guy playing heimdall, i thought it was cool

@supersayianfan1

actually a Cuban guy could play Black Panther you realise their are Black Cubans (Afro-Cubans). also Cuban is a nationality not a race.

@jazzman black panther isnt black cuban lol
@weedbeater it depends on the character like if batman was black or asian it mite not work but heimdall is black which he did well but imo it makes no sense how can there be one black guy in a realm and also one asian in a realm lol
