Casting the Highlander Remake  
Following up on my prior post.

Who would you cast in a remake of the original Highlander movie? I'm not up on a lot of current actors, but off the top of my head...

Connor: Viggo Mortenson
Ramirez: Oded Fehr
The Kurgan: No idea
Heather: Sophia Myles
Brenda: Morena Baccarin

Now it's your turn!

The fact that you stuck Oded Fehr in there?? Makes me love you so much!!!

I adore Oded! [shares Oded love]

Valentine Pelka would make a great Kurgan but then how would they explain Kronos still being alive?

Can Viggo do a Scottish accent?

Considering the Scottish accents in Highlander have never been all that, I think he could do at least as good a job as the others did.

Oded Fehr! He'd totally rock as Ramirez. Excellent idea.

I thought so :)

[anal]Psst - Connor is Conor, when used as a Christian name and not as a Surname...[/anal]

And I've just checked the internet and it seems to be Connor all over the place, nowadays [Shudders]. I guess I'll just have to resign myself to the Highlander fandom mangling my surname.

Edited to add: Oh, wait, I'm not going mad! They did have the correct spelling originally! LInk to ORIGINAL SCRIPT

Like the thought of Viggo and Oded in there. Very nice! I know Viggo would do a helluva job and would probably do his damndedest to have the accent. *visualizes Viggo with sword* Okay, back to work now.
Ithithildyn on May 21st, 2008 05:58 pm (UTC)
Now we just need them to listen to us! :)

I'm not big on the idea of Viggo or anyone mentioned for the Kurgan so far. How about Ewan MacGregor for the Highlander? By the "we know he can use a sword" argument Ewan proved it in the Star Wars prequels. And, for the Kurgan, Dwayne Johnson aka the Rock? He showed he can use a sword in The Scorpion King. The Kurgan should be a big guy, Jet Li is too short, and Christian Bale too lean.
Ithithildyn on May 21st, 2008 05:58 pm (UTC)
Yes, but Viggo is cute [g] Cute is an important factor in my casting! I like the idea if the Kurgan not being a big guy, do something different than the original. Jet Li does menacing really well.

I love that guy!! Espically in the first Mummy movie movie. HOT!!!
anya2112anya2112 on May 22nd, 2008 01:19 am (UTC)
How about Gerard Butler as Connor/Conor??

He's got experience with a sword, he's F--King Smokin' Hot and he's Scottish!!!!

Ding, Ding, Ding...we have a winner folks!!

How about John Barrowman for Conor? After all, he is Scottish and cute. (I'm just being silly of course, there's no chance he'd get it, plus he might be a little camp in the role) I reckon David Tennant might pull it off if he bulked up a little...

I just think it might be nice for an actual Scot to get the role.

Oded would definitely be fantastic as Ramirez. And if a Scot is out of the question then Viggo is a good choice. It's perhaps a little out there, but maybe someone like Alan Rickman or Christopher Walken as The Kurgan. I don't mean them per se as they are probably a little old for the physicality of the role, but someone like them who has that instant air of menace... Bugger, can't think of anyone younger who sends a chill the way they do.
