Why not Dominic Armato? He could easily look like Guybrush if he lost some weight and dyed his hair blonde.

There's another guy who can play Guybrush. He already got the (nasty) haircut:

Name:  trump.jpg
Views: 141
Size:  23.2 KBName:  trump_lookalike.jpg
Views: 147
Size:  15.4 KB

Unlike Mr Armato, Mr Trump doesn't have to dye his hair to look like Guybrush.
May need to lose some weight too, though.

I didn't like the Pirates movies.

Anyway we're avoiding the most important question - who's going to play the duck?

I disagree with Gray Matter but quite agree with GK1.

Dreamfall (I said some of these in previous threads too)

April Ryan: Jemima Rooper
Zoe: Gemma Arterton
Faith: Bailee Madison
Kian: Wilmer Valderrama
Brian: Alexis Denisof
White Dragon: Amy Acker

Broken Sword...it was scheduled for a movie but it got sacked....

the cast is puzzling......i'll think about it

PS:Gemma seems rather popular in these movies...maybe i should put her in BS too

I'm liking this!



L.A. Noire - just use all the actors that were used the first time...


Grim Fandango - Michael Fassbender (Hunger), Christian Bale (The Machinist), Frank Langella (Masters of the Universe, The Box), Keira Knightley, Renée Zellweger
Cast actual skeletons and you'll save a ton in visual effects...



But enough trolling. Some real suggestions:


To the Moon

Dr. Eva Rosalene - Rosario Dawson
Dr. Neill Watts - either Jake Gyllenhaal or Joseph Gordon-Levitt

(if done with different actors for the young and old Johnny and River)
Old Johnny - Jeff Bridges
Young Johnny - Liam Hemsworth
Old River - Jessica Lange
Young River - Alison Lohman

(if done by making one actor age with Benjamin Button-type visual effects)
Johnny - Johnny Depp (preferably in pre-Pirates mode)
River - Bryce Dallas Howard

Give it to either Duncan Jones or Matthew Vaughn to direct.
