Just thought we could have some fun here.
Lets say you have an unlimited budget to create whatever film you wish. You can hire 4 A List actors…who would you hire, and for which character?
Hugh Laurie as my main antagonist. The guy is an absolute genius, and I honestly wish he would get involved in more films. He has such incredible presence, and I think could pull off a ‘Heath Ledger’ style bad-guy performance!
Robert Dinero would be in my film, but as a secondary character. I think his extreme subtlety can be relied on to push a story forwards, without overwhelming the screen.
Samuel L Jackson…as another antagonist. He is just always cool, and seeing him ‘bad’ is always good!
Finally, for a protagonist, Ellen Paige. I would just love to see these overpowering screen presences trounced by a petite young girl! She has some major acting chops, and a dry wit that I just love.
So theres my ideal cast! Whats yours?
