CBM: Before I finish up the second part of my Dragonball fancast, I thought I would try to cast Mortal Kombat.
Nice list let's get her for Sindel.
Its good, but if it were possible....the people from Mortal Kombat legacy would do just fine.
I havent seen Legacy yet, but this guys fancast is pretty good. However, Michael Jai White definitely desrves the continuing role of Jax.
Seriously... stop making these articles. You just choose all the wrong people. Especially when there have already been something like a live action series, like Legacy. Just use the same actors as it would just make more sense. When you come up with cast lists, you sound like a hollywood caster, where you choose all the wrong people.
I think the problem is, a lot of people who make these articles choose actors based on whether they look like the characters, and not whether they can act like the characters. Take Jensen Ackles for example - He's a reasonable actor and he looks a bit like Johnny Cage, but from all the roles I've seen him in, he couldn't pull off Johnny Cage if his life depended on it. The role needs to be played by someone more sprightly and cocky. Jensen Ackles is more of a serious, gruff, "cool guy" actor. Not a loud, obnoxious, hyperactive guy like Johnny Cage.
When casting for a video game movie, you got to cast somebody who sounds the part AND looks the part. Hollywood casting directors only go for those that look the part. You on the otherhand go for people who just sound the part. You got to have people who look like the video game characters so they relate with each other. You aint exactly going to cast Ice Cube as Nathan Drake, now would you? Althoug they did cast Jamie Foxx as Lynch in the Kane and Lynch movie.... just stupid!!! EDIT: Thats a complete lie. What about the australian actress who plays Miranda in Mass Effect? You want an australian to play an american role!!! - Unless these arent your articles in which case, you should put who is writing it in the desc on N4G.
Me? I'm not sure why you think I'd only cast based on actors who sound the part. Of course I'd cast actors who both look and sound the part. o.O But then again, I have no idea who I'd cast for a Mortal Kombat movie. If I was a director, I'd probably send my company bankrupt trying to find the right people. :O
"Unless these arent your articles in which case, you should put who is writing it in the desc on N4G." Um...I did though? The site's name is in the description. o.O And all of the fancast articles were written by different authors (their names are right under the title at the source.)
Vin Diesel as Shao Khan would be brilliant
this list sucks,i will go with mostly everyone from MK Legacy series,except Sonya,i will go with another actress, a little younger,but not chosen cause she is pretty,a girl that has fighting skills,that is why i'm saying MK Legacy actors,cause they have these skills,some of them even compete in fighting tournaments,like Michael Jai White,they have belts won,and for a movie like this you need great fighting choreography,and for that you need someone who knows to fight,MK Legacy had great and fast fighting scenes,but they were to short to enjoy it
