Who should star in Ancestor (the movie)?

  • Avatar of J.P.

    Pretend for a moment the movie version of Ancestor is in the works. If you were casting actors for the parts in the book, who would you want to see on the screen and in which role?

    I think Nathan Jones would be good fit for either the Magnus or Perry Dawsey role.

    Who would Baio and Pegg play? I just gotta know!!!

    In shaun of the dead and hot fuzz he has played some bad-ass who can just kick ass left and right and that role seems good for him.

    She might need a little makeup, or they’ll have to come up with a new MPAA rating to account for the raw horror of the whole thing. You know, it would be like when you put the wrong hot sauce on something and the heat completely overpowers the flavor of the food it’s on… I wouldn’t want her to ruin the whole thing by simply appearing too horrible. The story would be lost in the wake of it all. (Grin.)

    While he has some good action in his other movies I just can not see him in a serious slasher movie like this. I think if at all he be Claytons boy

    I agree with Nathan as Magnus.  I watched him in his brief stint on wrestling and in the movie The Protector.  It wasn’t a bad movie at all, and he was a beast.

    oh god….as much as i want to see that go down, deep down i know that andy would ruin the movie. he cant do anything seriously

    and presumably her state of health, with a little assistance from the special effects folks, she might make a nice McButter. (Hey, wait a minute, wasn’t Lassie actually a guy dog?)

    could play Magnus, he’s a little bit older than Perry, right?  And Trace is a big, bad dude.

    Avatar of Christian Vosler

    Russel Crowe as PJ, he’d be pretty good. Daniel Craig is too old…

    What about Sarah? Rhumkorrf?

    Avatar of John Vovers

     strap him in a body suit and get creative with the angles and you could make the FDO himself as Magnus.

    oh and John Leguizamo as Gunther 

    but who would be Chris Detweiler? i recon owen wilson looks right. 


    You kill me?

    no, no

    I kill you

    Who ever stared as Magnus in the Ancestor Trailer on youtube. Now that would be awesome!!!

    I love APC’s, so crunchy!!!

    Avatar of Terry Lee

    That trailer on youtube is cool as Hell after it freezes over. I shared it on my Facebook page and found out that I work with a junkie, I did not figure that that would happen.

    Man, I’d love to see Edward Norton if we had big budget. If we didn’t, I think Norman Redus is perfect. He’s in WALKING DEAD, and also the driver in this Lexus commercial:

    A new Zealand actor, been in many US movies now – awesome for this tough guy role.
    Good value for money too :)

    Avatar of Tom Ruddy

    What you talking about Bsby McButter? His name is close enough. I think he could do it. There is the little problem of not being alive but as FDO I’m sure you could figure something out.

    Avatar of Renee Jordan

    …that I should play every part, a la Eddie Murphy in The Nutty Professor, AND get the full pay that individual actors would get for each part. That’s just my opinion though. :)

    her’e some quick thougts on the whole cast, but i’m aiming more for a SyFy miniseries than for a movie…

    Magnus Paglione -> Stone Cold Steve Austin (actor / wrestler)
    Danté Paglione -> Robert Sean Leonard (House)
    Dr. Claus Rhumkorrf -> Bill Nighy (underworld)
    Dr. Liu Jiandan (Jian) -> Margaret Cho (drop dead diva)
    Dr. Erika Hoel -> Marg Helgenberger (CSI)
    Tim Feely -> Robert Carlyle (Stargate Universe)
    Galina Poriskova -> Beau Garrett (TRON:Legacy)
    P.J. Colding -> Stephen Collins (No ordinary family)
    Andy Crosthwaite -> The miz (wrestler)
    Gunther Jones -> Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights)
    Brady Giovani -> Vincent D’Onofrio (L&O:Criminal Intent)
    Sara Purinam -> Julie Benz (No ordinary family)
    Alonzo Barella -> Cliff Curtis (Trauma)
    Harold Miller -> Joel Moore (James Cameron’s Avatar)
    Andre “Cappy” Capistrano -> Gary Dourdan (CSI)
    Clayton Detweiler -> Johm Goodman (Speed Racer)
    Chris Detweiler -> Justin Hartley (Smallville)
    Sven Ballantine -> Hugh Laurie (House)
    James Harvey -> Ryan Stiles (Two and a Half Men)
    Stephanie Harvey -> Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie)
    Bobby Valentine -> Brian Van Holt (Cougar Town)
    Murray Longworth -> Mitch Pillegi (Grey’s Anatomy)
    Colonel Paul Fischer -> Chris Noth (Sex & The City)

    BTW, I also think that this guy who’s doing Thor this summer, Chris Hemsworth, has the size and look needed for Perry Dawsey or Quentin Barnes
