He doesn't look far off for the part, but I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to get the good doctor out of my head.

Natsu X FairyTail2629d ago

he's a good actor from what I'Ve seen him tho on screen in lost. I'd like to see him in ME without a doubt.

inveni02629d ago

I always thought he'd make that part perfectly. Plus, he would be a low-budget actor and not well enough known on the silver screen to be hard for an audience to accept. That seems to be the hardest part about casting video game and comic book movies.

Jack Shepard, Commander Shepard. Am I the only one seeing the similarity lol.

gaffyh2628d ago

Damnit, I shouldn't have approved this. This was a April Fool's joke that IMDB took a little too seriously and have put him as the rumored lead. Apparently, it's not gonna be him.

pwnzter2628d ago

I really want a female to take the part of shepard in the movie

zeeshan2628d ago

I remember that the first time I played MASS EFFECT, I said to my wife that Commander Shepard looks a LOT like Jack Shepard from LOST! I think this guy would be a great fit!!

Eamon2628d ago

Live together, die alone

DMason2628d ago

I think that Tom Hardy would have been a better fit. Plus, Tom Hardy looks like Shepard more and has the acting chops to knock it out of the park. He's been in movies such as RocknRolla, Bronson, Inception, and the upcoming Mad Max movie.

"I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to get the good doctor out of my head."

That's kinda what many says whenever he tackles a new important role . He "wasnt supposed" to shake off his character from party of five too , and yet he did with the short lived Haunted and with Lost.

I'm confident it will be the same with upcoming gigs

EVILDEAD3602628d ago

Huge Lost fan..but wow..that's an amazing match..

Always thought a M.E. movie would cost a 100 millionn if done right..hope it gets a great budget..

On the flip side I wish Bioware could do a Serenity game..


theEx1Le2628d ago

Wow, Bioware + Serenity game.. you just blew my mind dude

One with a dude and one with a chick.

Skizelli2628d ago (Edited 2628d ago )

Haunted was a good show. Short-lived indeed. Not sure why it didn't do well when you have shows like Medium and Ghost Whisperer now that don't even compare.

When I played Mass Effect, I remember naming my male character 'Jack' (being a fan of Lost and all).

TheLeprachaun2628d ago

He's actually perfect for the role. Every time I see Shepard in a Mass Effect game I think he looks like Matthew.

Kos-Mos2628d ago (Edited 2628d ago )

Good doctor? Now how good was he really? Did you understand Lost series at all?

The only game MICK0S0FT wants to cross over to hollywood is Halo.. and that will fail.

Pandamobile2629d ago

Why would 'Mickosoft' have any say in the matter? Mass Effect isn't owned by them. It's an Electronic Arts property.

ktchong2629d ago

for letting BioWare and Mass Effect exclusivity got away.

Pandamobile2629d ago

I don't think they ever had a choice. When EA bought Bioware, they bought the IP too.

Baka-akaB2628d ago

wasnt their say , it's obvious Bioware wouldnt give the full rights to anything they create to any console manufacturer .
Should consoles indeed die and leave place to pc or a new form , they dont intend to go the way of the dodo

edhe2628d ago

Yes.. that mass effect that's now multiplatform o_O

Oh shit it's MS only!

corneliuscrust2628d ago (Edited 2628d ago )

Healthy dose of MS hating out of nowhere...they have nothing to do with Mass Effect

thanks for showing up to spread the hate though. Typical N4G style

Skizelli2628d ago (Edited 2628d ago )

I'm kind of out of the loop on this, so if I'm wrong, please correct me.

@Genesis2oo9: You can't really assume it will fail. It's such an epic story, I think it would translate pretty well to a movie. I'm personally glad the movie keeps falling through. That shows me that people want to do it right. But it would take a great deal of money to really do it justice, money that backers are afraid to spend on a video game to movie adaption, despite how successful Halo is. That's probably why most adaptions suck, poor execution -- aside from the lack of a good story in most. The story is there, but the special effects would have to be as well.

orange-skittle2628d ago

Another jackass trying to be funny! Dumbass didnt know that Mass Effect was devloped by Bioware and Published by EA. Now what do have to say you moron?

Just thinking about it pisses me off, but Matthew Fox was great in LOST. I hope this movie is in good hands.

Hades13372628d ago

Agreed, 6 years of viewing for THAT.

pr0digyZA2628d ago (Edited 2628d ago )

I personally love the ending was leading there the whole time "faith vs science" was very emotional hope it wins some awards. Ive heard that most people who don't like it don't like the fact that it has religion same reason why some didn't like the battlestar Galactica ending.

electrolemon2628d ago

If you enjoyed the journey to the ending, then that six years wasn't a waste. If you hated the ending, great, whatever. But you watched for six years, and loved the six years, so why is it "ruined" just because of one episode? That's stupid.

Baka-akaB2628d ago

To each their own , but you dont have to think that way .

"THAT" , will be for me those 6 years of an excellent ride , regardless of the ending , wich was never going to live up any hype ? When do they ever anyway ?

In the end it ended like its biggest influence , Twin peaks ...

Mcardle2628d ago (Edited 2628d ago )

well not quite, Lost at least had closure on the main storylines.... Where's annie is more of a Lost season 4 type of ending....

Cheeseknight282628d ago

Lost's ending was bittersweet. I loved it at the time, sorta don't like it in retrospect.

They wanted a ending that people would remember (Sopranos), not something that is euphoric (Star Wars VI) I think.

Skizelli2628d ago (Edited 2628d ago )

Many of my Lost-loving friends hated the ending because they despise religion. Funny thing is, the show had religious undertones throughout the entire series.

I personally found closure in it. Sucks for them.

dinkeldinkse2628d ago

At least it didn't suck complete ass like how The Sopranos ended. 5 minutes of watching Meadow try to park and then when she gets out of the car and goes into the diner the picture blacks out.

x5exotic2628d ago

Best Tv ending ever,,,,beyond perfection but sadly 1/4 of the nation is retarded and didnt get it

FiftyFourPointTwo2629d ago

On topic: I dont know him, but he has the look indeed.

Count2628d ago


All shapes and sizes.

da305kratos2628d ago
