It would be funny to see Raiden from MK join Ghost Rider lol

Damn, Lambert didn't age to well, especially compared to Adrian Paul, who is only 2 years younger.

Christopher Lambert's response when he found out Nick Cage was returning as Ghost Rider...

I bet he is playing Connor MacLeod!!:) The Highlander vs. Ghost Rider!... Who would win?!

He'd also make an awesome Magneto.

OptimusPrime114 - High Five! I have thought that since MK.

Connery's character is Egyptian he only works for the Spanish king.

The perfect person to play Magneto, if only he could act, but he flat out can't, would be Vince McMahon. Since we all know he can't act, that leaves Eric Roberts as my personal favorite to play Magneto.

Excellent find @ LUCAX!!!

Gr8 actor... well I like him lol!

What part is he gonna play?

The bike?

Sorry but as entertaining as he was in MK, he was a shyte Raiden. There was nothing remotely close to Raiden in his portrayal. Well... i guess the lightning was the closest thing. Mass and OP are right though. He'd have made a stellar Magneto. Way better than Raiden or it's true name Raijin: the JAPANESE god of thunder. Would you have prefered an Asian to portray Marvel's Thor??? I think not.

@teabag: have you seen 'Machete'? I think Steven Segal has the worst Spanish accent out there lol. Sorry if I spelled his name wrong too, I'm using my iPod to type

@ teabag & @ siolentvex

whats more worse,is that they've got these terrible accents.

but they're exiled from another planet.
Siolentvex - 10/12/2010, 10:35 AM
@deadpool72
Yeah I think everyone in the universe has agreed to ignore the crap that is Highlander 2.

As a side note, I have always enjoyed the fact that Connery refuses to hide his native accent.

But to get back to the topic, I would love to see Lambert restart his career,.... but the first GR was so horrible that I can't imagine this one being any better.

woot!
Moltenman - 10/12/2010, 1:13 PM
@Teabag

The most cringeworthy part of Highlander is the oh so French Lambert explaining what a haggis is to Sean Connery. neither of them doing anything to disguise their natural accents lol
marvel72 - 10/12/2010, 1:47 PM

Siolentvex - 10/13/2010, 4:15 PM
I don't know why people say Lambert is french.
He was born on Long Island.

in unrelated Highlander news.

i love the original, and would hate to see it get a crappy reboot.
