Actors who could play comic characters

Post by Hourglass on Tue Jan 26, 2010 3:43 pm

Following on from a the DWM thread where Tony and I discussed who could play Aslom Daak, sighting "The Rock" as a possible choice, I thought I'd start a thread that handles this type of subject.

So which actors do you feel are possible candidates to play your favorite villians.

One suggestion I felt, and please dont laugh, is Stephen Fry to play Sinister from XMen. I just feel his profound way in speaking, and now his slimmer look, could really pull off the character well.

I know Stephen has lost a lot of weight, but Sinister is almost anorexic! I always think of Steve as more your classic Bond villain, a future Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

Johnny Depp could play Sinister, though. He looks the part.

Stephen Fry as Blofeld? No wonder I never watch Bond films. Fry? Madness...sorry, I laughed.

Well, thinking about it, Stephen's apparent aversion to stroking pussies might disqualify him, I suppose...

JUST FOR FUN!! If the `impossibility` of an "I. Spy" film could have been proposed in the early 70s then I would think musician Acker Bilk would have made a great Mr X and Jack Nicholson for Mastermind! Spike Milligan a formidible Mahairee Yogi and Richard Wattiss as Boss Spy!

Irene Handle as Granny Spy with actor Colin Farrell as Cammy Flage! For Mr Tempest -the actor who played Dr Zarroff in DR Who's "The Underwater Menace" (Can't recall his name! drat!) He was also in very first Callan ep "A Magnum for Schneider" He's be a great Mr Tempest! Very Happy Very Happy Smile Wink

Joseph Furst was the guy who played Zaroff, surely the villain responsible for Doctor Who's best ever cliffhanger ('Nuzzink in ze vorld can shtop me noooow!!!')

But...Acker Bilk? Really? Shocked

Looking at a picture of him, Acker reminds me more of Pa Angel...

We'd best hope that Rab don't read any of this! The thought of Acker Bilk playing Mr X in a movie, I reckon would have him in tears!
