I think we have our Luke Cage.

Action choreography was a little weird, but he certainly has more than enough build for the role.

Take some acting classes big guy.
SuperCat - 5/23/2014, 6:14 PM

WombRaider - 5/23/2014, 6:18 PM

So....if one film is good you right off everything else? That's pretty shitty.

Have you ever asked for a movie with a cast so outrageous , so eclectic, so INCREDIBLE that it spans the ages of the silver screens?


What's her tits from Baywatch


Huggy Bear

That Fat Italian dude who played a football player in "Last Boyscout" and a football player in "That Football Show on HBO"

Gene Lebell

Apparently from the Youtube comments a "Christian Singer"

And the dude this article is about

I prefer Nomis' sizzle reel.

dio - 5/23/2014, 6:53 PM
Dude lol B&Y...Yo Black&yellow...check that vid I posted above you. Was searching for some more work from this dude..and this was surprising to say the least
XF14 - 5/23/2014, 6:54 PM
I want to be happy that there are actors who actually read comics and respect them. I dont think dude is worthy, however, but time is the truest test. I wouldnt mind be proven wrong if deserving.
sKeemAn - 5/23/2014, 6:54 PM
Thats a big dude. Choreography was cheesy but he could work.
PsychoticSpaceRaccoon - 5/23/2014, 6:55 PM
No thanks. I'd rather have Chad Coleman (the reformed gang member-turn boxing coach from The Wire).
dio - 5/23/2014, 6:59 PM
Or from the Walking Dead too ; )
TheRationalNerd - 5/23/2014, 7:02 PM

Matt Damon for Luke Cage!
BritishMonkey - 5/23/2014, 8:09 PM
Enthusiastic. But I'm still in favour of Terry Crews.
batmanvsuperman - 5/23/2014, 9:51 PM
Need to see more but don't really care just cast him or someone
TelaVizion - 5/24/2014, 3:10 AM
I like the vid. But Terry Crews is still my top choice.
Jimbobatpool93 - 5/24/2014, 7:44 AM
Terry Crews or GTFO
Floke - 5/24/2014, 10:25 AM
Is Ronnie Coleman big enough?
LEEE777 - 5/24/2014, 11:02 AM
Don't know him tho if you say he's got the acting chops, shit yeah!
