It must have happened to you: you see an actor and you say to yourself “damn he would be perfect in this role”. Besides, perhaps the producers even thought about it before you did and the actor in question didn’t get the role for some strange reason, it happens, but we decided to make a short list of actors that ‘we would see well in certain roles and you can tell us if we’re right or if we’re big idiots in the comments (but quiet about insults, we have a little heart too).
1. Adam Driver: Professor Snape
Table of Contents
The guy clearly has the head for the job, if you had to make a film about the origins or the youth of Severus Snape, you wouldn’t even have to do a casting, just take Adam Driver and give him a black toga, a book of magic and a canteen of polyjuice. Hop, you have your movie.
2. Karl Urban: Wolverine
You are going to tell me that Hugh Jackman was perfect and is barely older than Karl Urban and you are absolutely right. But sorry, when we look The Boys it’s hard to say that the guy doesn’t have the bestial side of the comic book character and that it would make a much darker version that would be fun and that would beat the crap out of adamantium blades.
3. Audrey Tautou: Snow White
You put a yellow and blue dress on her and you film her in the forest of Fontainebleau and that’s it, the miracle takes place. You don’t even need dwarfs, animals that do the cleaning, a big all-blue genius or a herd of buffaloes (it’s possible that I’m confusing several Disneys, don’t hold it against me) she has the physique for the role.
4. Jared Leto: Jesus
If we assume that Jesus existed (of which we are not certain), that he was white (of which there is no chance) and that Hollywood will brush aside these two questions to make money (which is guaranteed) then Jared Leto would be perfect for a biopic about Jesus. But not a torture porn biopic like Mel Gibson’s film, something a little more family-friendly where you can eat popcorn in front of it.
5. Chris Hemsworth as Brody (Point Break Remake)
I hope we never have to suffer a remake of this film, but if that were to happen, which Hollywood producers are quite capable of doing, we must admit that the handsome surfer / robber side would fit rather well with Hemsworth, not as good as Swayze, but it can be done.
6. Henry Cavill: James Bond
Yeah I try it, because he has the good face to do it and it would change a bit from Daniel Craig. But also because it could make a James Bond even more naughty and pissed off than the others, with lots of super cool James Bond gadgets. Then the guy played Superman and Geralt De Riv, blowing faces and putting on costumes, that knows him.
7. Keanu Reeves: Batman
If ever the producers want to make an adaptation of the Batman comics “The Dark Knight” a little better than Nolan’s third installment, taking an actor a little older than Bale would be fine. And as a tired old Bruce Wayne, Keanu Reeves could really deliver something very cool. The actor still has to decide to grow old one day because he still looks so young that he is asked for his identity card when he goes to buy a can of 8-6.
8. Matthieu Amalric: Toad (X-Men)
If you ever know the X-Men universe or just remember the toad character from the very first movie, you have to pretty much agree that Matthieu Amalric would be perfect for the role. Not only because he’s a good actor, but also because there’s something batrachian about him. Yeah it sucks, but I like it.
9. Mads Mikkelsen: All Roles
This guy knows how to play everything, even play everything well, both good guys and super creepy bad guys. But in addition, he is handsome, he has the mega class and he ages well. A biopic on Putin, a new Iron Mana film about adult Harry Potter, a bobsled in Rasta Rocket 2… Take Mads.
