Recently on Random Fandom, Host Drew Taylor and I discussed dreamcasting. As in if you were making a comic book movie, who would be your dream cast.
Suffice to say I had plenty to discuss on the matter.
You can download the episode here or listen below.
Right off the bat I mentioned Marvel’s best kept secret, Heroes For Hire.
Reuben Langdon as Danny Rand/Iron Fist
Moon Bloodgood as Colleen Wing
Terry Crews as Luke Cage
Vivica A. Fox as Misty Knight.
During the show, I discussed in detail why each actor best suited their respective role. Drew was speechless as all he could do was agree.
And while I didn’t mention her on the show, the perfect actress for Jessica Jones came to me later. You have to include Jessica Jones who for all intents and purposes is now a member of the Heroes For Hire/Daughters of the Dragon clique.
Holly Marie Combs as Jessica Jones.
But Wait, There’s More!!!!!
Marjean Holden as Photon– If you are familiar with the actress and the characer, you will know why this casting is gold.
Ellen Wong as Cassandra Cain– Nuff said!!!!!
Alan Ritchson as Freedom Ring– My first act would casting director, executive producer, and writer would be to make right what Marvel got wrong and erase the homophobic fail that Marvel’s answer to Kyle Rayner was subjected to. And because he’s already done the impossible by making Aquaman cool, Alan Ritchson would definitely be the leading man I would want let Freedom Ring!!!!
And since I’m dreamcasting, let’s talk about my favorite franchise. A Masters of the Universe/Princess of Power
Hugo Weaving as Skeletor– He’s played Agent Smith and the Red Skull. Let’s face it. Weaving is so good at being bad.
Melina Perez as Catra– Before I had anyone else cast, I knew for years that Melina would be first choice in a Masters of the Universe/Princess of Power film. If you’ve seen her in action in the ring, then you would know why.
Chris Hemsworth as He-Man– I’ve had my eye on Hemsworth since NuTrek. And when I mentioned the hottie that played Captain Kirk, people were like, no Neo, that wasn’t Chris Hemsworth, that was Chris Pine. And I was like nooooo, Kirk’s father (though Pine is fine too). For anyone who doubts that Hemsworth doesn’t have the chops to be He-Man google pics of him as Thor and then come talke to me.
Laura Vandervoot as She-Ra
Rachel Nichols as Teela
And last but certainly not least…….
Misha Collins as Midnighter- I frikkin want a Midnighter movie.I want one NOW! NOW!NOW!NOW!NOW!NOW!NOW!NOW!NOW!NOW!NOW!NOW!NOW!NOW!NOW!NOW!NOW!NOW!NOW!NOW!
You know, thinking about these films kinda pisses me off. Because I could so see these movies making both DC and Marvel so much bank and they would be incredible and we’ll never see them in theaters.
Oh well, a boy can dream.
