Who should star in The Rookie (the movie)?

  • Profile photo of Jason Williamson

    Peyton Manning as Barnes (hes actually pretty funny and might be able to handle a simple acting role like this) Brett Favre as Pine? Probably not Favre but how about Alex Skarsgard from True Blood for Pine.

    To be honest though I would have to say this should be a CGI project with the live capture tech they used to do Gollum.

    Dark Knight Marine General

    Festina Lente

    I think a way to go would be wrestler from the WWE. Probably cheaper than actors with the same recognition, and I don’t think I would ever stop laughing if I saw John Morrison as Quentin Barnes and Dwaine The ROCK Johnson as Donald Pine. I don’t even think I would be able to finish the movie because I would completely lose my shit at that combo. Wiki for the wrestlers http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_World_Wrestling_Entertainment_employees

      The Rookie Cast

      Quentin Barnes

    John Morrison

      Don Pine

    The first person to come to mind is Jeffrey Donovan from Burn Notice.

    Dwaine The ROCK Johnson

      Fayed

    It’s a shame that Schwartsinager is old and now the Governator. How is he not tailor made.

      Yassoud Murphy

    MVP could pass if the character was somewhat reinvented

      Pareless

    Not to sure about the character, so I’ll just toss Batista in here

      Rick Warburg

    Chris Master could pull it off

    David Hart Smith could have the chops for this also

    So could Dolph Ziggler

    Dang, even Paul Burchill

      Choto the Bright

      Virac the Mean

      And other Quyth

    Jason Momoa – SG Atlantis

    Christopher Judge – Teal’c (as Virac the Mean)

    Michael Madsen – Reservior Dogs

      Tweedy

    Nathan (as mentioned earlier) could do it, but I don’t think he’s the best choice

    Another iffy pick would be Goldberg.

    This one is going to take more thought

    Profile photo of greg roberson

    yea ryan reynolds might work for Barnes, maybe. but paul worker shoud be pine, n kane hodder should b Tweedy, n brock lesnar for Fayed

    if they get the right make-up & effects folks involved to ensure he looks young.

    he may look to old though

    as Quentin Barnes.  He’s got the right build for it and he could pull off the swagger and the attitude without a hitch.

    If the FDO had a pet (besides his dogs) it should be Foamy!!

    that he (or she!) has nothing to be ashamed of. Foamy is the FDS (Future Dark Squirrel).

    While Nathan would work for either Perry or Magnus he would not work so well for Quentin Barnes. The reason being most of the players are quite large in the Rookie. Thus all the cast would have to be fairly large also. Vin would work as he and the rest cast would have to be of similar size.

    Nathan Jones, He’s a little old (39) but he’s got the size (6’11) and built like a tank.

    I even have a t-shirt and a 16 ounce coffee mug with Foamy’s likeness on them… I think he could petition the ELoE and get in.

    Yes, that big black dude from The Green Mile would definitely have to be in the movie as someone, but I think Vin Diesel would make a kick ass Quentin.  (just one womans opinion)

    keanu reeves would be a horrible pick

    Profile photo of J.P.

    I’ll put this right out there for everyone to chew on: Keanu Reeves should not play Barnes. Even though he’s done a football movie before, and Sci Fi, he’s way too dopey to play Barnes.

    Isn’t “dood” actually spelled “dhood?” And yes, the “j” is silent, like in swimming and kangaroo.

    Pretend for a moment the movie version of The Rookie 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?
