Can this be the perfect Half Life 2 Movie Casting? Check the screenshot.
Jean Reno! Are you serious?
I don't think a Half Life movie would even work.
Works pretty awesome IMO, and this is on $500 budget. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Perfect I'd say yes but actually getting them to do the movie is another, most are used to being main actors and some wouldn't accept being cast into side roles.
hey, don't talk sh*t about jean reno. he's one of my favorite actors of all time, you guys should watch the professional. @darkmurder are you kidding? have you seen the cast to the Ocean's Eleven movies? george clooney, brad pitt, matt damon, julia roberts, don cheadle, elliot gould, bernie mac, andy garcia, and carl reiner!? the only way to have a better cast would to have robert dinero in it. seriously, the ocean's movies are some of the best of all time. it's so classy and sophisticated, yet ballsy and in-your-face at the same time. i don't see how having popular actors in the same movie compromising any one else's spotlight unless it's some egomaniac like christian bale.
Would make a badass(and witty) Freeman.
Like Rosario Dawson though. But here's the BIG question.... where's my Episode 3?!
That dude from House would bring a much more vocal, wise cracking Gordan Freeman, something fans would hate, while average movie goers would find entertaining.
House is not the only thing he's done in his career.
What are you saying Mindedone? That he had a life and a career before he moved to America? Next you'll be saying Jackie Chan has movies older than Rush Hour. And I'm pretty sure Jet Li never did anything before Lethal Weapon 4.
and somehow I know this AND live in the United States at the same time!
He's a man of little words. Little being none. When he first encountered Striders did he say a word? No. When He was thrown across a pit of death in a car did he say a word? No. When time stopped just as the Citadel was about to be destroyed did he say a word? No. He doesn't have a personality. He has no feelings. He's a face that gamers only see on the front of the box and on the tops of Greatest Games lists. I think a movie would suck.
lol i would love to see hughie retain his wise-cracking sarcasm for gordon freeman just for laughs. it'd be ironic as hell, but i love laughing at game-to-movie translations, watching hollywood fail miserably at recreating the same amazement from the said game. i'm not joking when i say this, but i would nominate dragon ball evolution for comedy of the year since it was so sh*tty and cheesy.
"Next you'll be saying Jackie Chan has movies older than Rush Hour. And I'm pretty sure Jet Li never did anything before Lethal Weapon 4." I hope you aren't being serious.
We forgot that Gordon is mute the guy must really hate talking.....gets to look at Alyx's ass most of the time, was thrown in a vehicle across a massive hole...yet not one word.
That House guy can't even shut up for any more than 5 seconds (and can't go without making some a$$-faced sarcastic comment for anymore than 5 seconds). They need to get someone better to play Gordon Freeman.
dude he is a character. HOUSE IS A CHARACTER HE PLAYS THERE NOT THE SAME PERSON THEY DONT EVEN TALK IN THE SAME ACCENT! You cannot bash an actor because your bashing a character he plays on tv. House is not real.
I dont know why these fantasy castings always insist on someone just because of their hair/facial hair style. I mean how many times have you heard someone suggest a role (eg, like Hitman or Kratos) for Vin Diesel for no other reason than he's bald, like Ed Norton couldnt shave his head or something. Still, it would be funny to hear Barry say GFY while slurring your ethnicity and sexual leanings. Ari Gold, you rock.
Hey, Hugh Laurie wears glasses. HE'S PERFECT!
GORDAN FREEMAN, LETS HUG IT OUT B**TCH. OH, AND TAKE THIS CROWBAR. Decent (if obvious) look alike list. Terrible casting choices though. Seriously, Dennis Hopper? Has that guy even done a role where he hasn't acted like he's high on cocaine?
If we're gonna have a Half Life movie, there needs to be an anon as Freeman. Even if Laurie tried to do a serious role I just couldn't appreciate it at all. To each his own I suppose.
I approve of this. Good choices. Hugh Laurie.
There's more to creating a perfect cast for a game movie than just finding actors who look similar in ways to the character they'll be playing. Some people don't understand this for some reason, especially those in Hollywood. They're all a bunch of morons over there. I remember when there were some people who wanted Vin Diesel or the Rock to play Duke Nukem in the movie.. I wouldn't have even pirated the movie if one of those douchebags were in it.
nope they do not include Mark Walhberg, Matt Damonm, Or Matthew Lillard so I do not approve lol
Dennis Hopper is dead
No he is not.
Fail comment fails.
How 'bout we get Tom Hanks to play all the parts?
Or Eddie Murphy.
A movie, based on a character that never talked. WOW! It could work though, if they make Gordon Freeman somehow like Rain Man.
I always saw the character Alyx been played by Halle Berry, but Rosario Dawson is just as good.
If that House guy would be Gordon Freeman, I wouldn't take the movie serious at all. So, NOOOO. And Dennis Hopper, come on. And Morgan Freeman? You gotta be kidding. It would be a crap movie.
No Jean Reno,no Rosario Dawson as Alyx,the best chosen actors are Hugh Laurie-it looks alot like Freeman and Christopher Walken is perfect for Gman
I hope they don't make a HL movie. I mean that Escape From City 17 video is pretty cool, but I doubt anyone can get a movie to capture the same experience as the game. On a side note though I'd watch anything with Rosario Dawson in it :)
I agree Rosario Dawson is so talented. Very underrated.
Ed norton was born to play this role
that is perfect!
