Default The Who Would You Cast In A Remake Of Game

Simple enough... Chose a movie (along with the characters) for the person below to remake. The next person choses the new cast then names the next film. If the person naming the film would like to name the original actors, go ahead, but it's not mandatory. Let's try to keep it to the main characters.

I'll start...

Casablanca
Richard Blaine (originally Humphrey Bogart):
Ilsa Lund (originally Ingrid Bergman):
Victor Laszlo (originally Paul Henreid):
Capt. Renault (originally Claude Rains):
Maj. Strasser (originally Conrad Veidt):
Signor Ferrari (originally Sydney Greenstreet):
Ugarte (originally Peter Lorre):
Sam (originally Dooley Wilson):

I think you picked a movie that's too difficult!!! I can't imagine anyone else in those roles-- even actors I really liked seemd ludicrous....

I mean, who can fill Bogart's shoes???

The Happening

Director: Matt Reeves
Stars: Sam Rockwell (main guy), Carey Mulligan (main girl), Joey King (kid), Ryan Gosling (main guy's friend)

Change the title. Tweak the story. Make it more believable and ominous. Make it look beautiful. Hell, keep M. Night or Fujimoto as the cinematographer. It's such a wasted plot that deserves a much better treatment.

Sam (originally Dooley Wilson): Cuba Gooding Jr.

Ok, here's one. Dog Day Afternoon:

Sonny (Al Pacino):
Sal (John Cazale):
Det. Moretti (Charles Durning):
Leon (Chris Sarandon):
Most Wanted: The Assassination of Jesse James... (Dir. Cut) Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit Arsenic and Old Lace The Devils Fail-Safe Lovesong The Muppets.

I know I'm just supposed to give a movie and let the next poster fill in the names, but here's my choices for:

Iron Man 2

Tony Stark/Iron Man - Sam Rockwell

James Rhodes/War Machine - Jamie Foxx

Pepper Potts - Anna Torv (Fringe)

Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow - Rachel Nichols (Scarlett in the horrid G.I. Joe movie)

Justin Hammer - Paul Giamatti

Ivan Vanko/Whiplash - Kevin Durand (Little John in Robin Hood remake, Keamy in Lost)

Nick Fury - Michael Biehn (Kyle Reese in the original Terminator)

Random casualties due to Iron Man/Whiplash battle - Channing Tatum, Paul Walker and Justin Bieber.

If they continue the Batman series without Christian Bale I think they should replace him with Garrett Hedlund from the TRON LEGACY film. He bears a striking resembelance to Bale. IMO

Huh?--Would I cast The Who in a remake of The Game??
Well, I can see an older Eric Clapton in the Michael Douglas role, but Roger Daltry might do well in the Sean Penn part.

If they ever remade "Dirty Harry". I think Hugh Jackman would be a perfect
replacment for Clint Eastwood. He has a strong resemblance to Clint.
