Who would you cast and why?
Roy Fokker - Matthew Mcconaughey
Do we have a can o' worms smiley yet?
Great choice. I seriously think he'd be awesome as Roy.
Because he's, unfortunately, a perpetual near-teen, I'd say Elijah Wood would be a great choice for Rick Hunter.
You could also go the route of "closer to teenager years and as yet untested on the bigscreen" route and choose someone like Tom Welling or...
I dunno, I can't think of anyone else who's dark-haired, teenagery and not yet a big name. Of course, it'd probably help if I watched shows that came on WB if I was going to name names.
A lot of these are from pooling through the imdb photo database and just random ideas:
Zhiang Xe (sp? Sorry!) as Lynn Minmei
Jada Pinkett-Smith as Claudia Grant
Naomi Watts as Lisa Hayes
Jude Law as Max Sterling
A thick-accented and done-up Mickey Rourke as Captain Gloval
Ron Perlman as Breetai
so far I realy like all of the cast choices made so I will go in a different direction and say that if I could get a live action Robotech movie made I would include all the sidestory stuff from the novlels (i.e. Thinking caps and what not) just so it's different and not just a carboncopy of the cartoon,and then maybe all the rabid Macross fans would not bitch so much if a Robotech movie was made. I mean can't just see and hear it, that and I read the novels way before I saw even half of the cartoon and have a much softer spot in my heart for them than the cartoon. But I do love Macross.
I'd throw out all the robotech stuff, and adapt Macross.
Owen Wilson FTW!!!
Isn't there like a 20-year difference between Lisa and Rick?
Anywhoo, here's my choices.
I actually think the people listed above are really great choices, so I'll just list some characters that weren't listed yet.
Khyron: Mackenzie Crook. He's from the British version of "The Office," and looks like a drug addict. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0188871/
Sean Bean would be good too.
Captain Gloval: Peter Stormare
Ben Dixon: Sean Astin.
Max Sterling: Christian Bale? I dunno, it just seems that Bale is so awesome, and Robotech is so awesome. Shrug. The two of them together would just be cool.
Gorg Bodolza: Bring Marlon Brando back from the dead. He'd be perfect.
Shoot. The other night I thought of the perfect guy to play Ben Dixon, but now for the life of me, I can't remember.
That's the Macross version (officially spelled Golg Boddole Zer). Robotech shortened his name to "Lord Dolza".
People should let Robotech die.
Separate names with a comma.
