    Here's a thought I've been marinating on since I started watching the G1 series on The hub:

    Hypothetically, who would be cast as Dr. Arkeville & Marissa Faireborn in the Movieverse?

    I'm not sure who I would want for Dr. Arkeville, however my choice for Marissa Faireborn would have to be Mariska Hargitay! :thumbs2: 

    If there is anyone here who has seen Law & Order: SVU, you know that she would be an ideal choice for the role! Plus, I would like to see her star in something outside of Law & Order: SVU for once!

    What are YOUR casting choices for for these two characters?

    Mariska Hargitay for Marissa Faireborn is a pretty good call.

    Christopher Lloyd for Arkeville, please. I think it would be interesting to see him play a villainous character.

    Agree with these. CL was pretty evil in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, ignoring all the cheesiness of course. :lol

    John Malkovich would be great, but he's already someone else so I'll just go with Christopher Lloyd.

    According to IMDb Frances McDormand is playing Marissa Faireborn.

    Dr. Arkeville would be cool, that other character I don't give two shits about. Not sure who would have to play him though but I don't think he could go really wrong.

    IMDB is lying.

    Heh, he's the first one to come to my mind too! I could see Christopher Walken doing it too.

    And how do you know that? IMDb is not a reliable source but still many times their info is right. We can't say that they're lying till the movie is out or someone from the film crew officially confirms it.

    Thats not a bad idea actually. Would just be a nice nod to the fans even if she doesn't act like the character. She does play a similar kind of role.

    But yeah, you should take almost anything you see on IMDB with a grain of salt.

    Walken or LLoyd would be good in the role, as for Fairborne, I don't really care.

    I hated both characters and neither one of them should be in the movie.

    Andy Dick for Archeville. Mabye Robert Picardo or even Ethan Phillips. Patrick Stewart. Jim Carey.

    For Marissa, Sara Rue, Eliza Dushku (hair died red obviously), Jessica Alba...

    For Arkeville, Steve Buscemi.

    For Marissa, Scarlett Johansson.
