Jeremy Renner as Michael Corleone
Bradley Cooper as Sonny Corleone
Emma Stone as Kay Adams-Corleone
Anne Hathaway as Connie Corleone
Daniel Craig as Tom Hagen
Giovanni Ribisi as Fredo Corleone


Michael Douglas, Christopher Walken and William Hurt are considered for Vito Corleone, but Robert De Niro is Nicolas Winding Refn's first and only choice for Vito Corleone and say it will pay tribute to Godfather

Paramount wanted Edward Norton or Mark Wahlberg for Michael Corleone but Nicolas Winding Refn chose Jeremy Renner because his attitude make him Michael Corleone

Bradley Cooper originally screen test for Michael Corleone, but Nicolas Winding Refn suggest him that he should play Sonny than playing Michael, and he did got a role of Sonny after Nicolas Winding Refn's first choice for Sonny, Jude Law dropped out

Emma Stone beat Amanda Seyfried and Jennifer Lawrence for the role of Kay Adams-Corleone because she make the character interesting rather being boring character and she also chose Jeremy Renner as Michael Corleone than Bradley Cooper

Rachel McAdams was originally cast for Connie Corleone but she have a creative difference with Nicolas Winding Refn and dropped out, Emily Blunt was considered for Connie Corleone before Anne Hathaway was cast

Clive Owen was originally cast for Tom Hagen, but was forced to dropped out due for scheduling conflict

Nicolas Winding Refn originally turn down the film but Ryan Gosling convince him to do the film

Nicolas Winding Refn wanted Ryan Gosling for Fredo Corleone but he turn down twice before Ryan Gosling suggestion than Giovanni Ribisi will be better choice than him

Nicolas Winding Refn decide to not including 2 Godfather's iconic theme because he doesn't want to make The Godfather same as the original Godfather

I gonna to ask you 3 question. One. Do you like casting choice of Wizard of Oz David Fincher, if not give me a some suggestion. Two. How do you describe David Fincher's Wizard of Oz Version. Three. Out of casting choice. Who was your favorite and least-favorite casting choice of Wizard of Oz David Fincher Version

And I was originally have Ben Affleck or George Clooney for Wizard of Oz but I decide have Ben Affleck for Alice in Wonderland. While George Clooney for Treasure Island.

And I couldn't think what David Fincher's version of iconic character from Wizard of Oz. Do you think what hos version look like?

Instead of making a Gladiator movie, Ridley Scott decided to remake the 1958 epic from Richard Fleischer "The Vikings", with the very same cast he envisioned for his initial Gladiator project :

Kirk Douglas/Russell Crowe







Tony Curtis/Joaquin Phoenix





Janet Leigh/Connie Nielsen





Ernest Borgnine/Oliver Reed





Frank Thring/Richard Harris






James Donald/Tommy Flanagan




"Father Godwin"

Alexander Knox/Derek Jacobi






Eileen Way/Giannina Facio





Edric Connor/Djimon Housou


post #2085 of 3248
By the way, this was my very first post... Nice to know you all!
post #2086 of 3248

Tony Scott's



Kurt Russell as JACK REACHER



Diane Lane as HELEN RODIN



Joe Morton as EMERSON



Val Kilmer as CHARLIE



Alan Arkin as ALEX RODIN





Charles Bronson as CASH



and Max Von Sydow as THE ZEC

post #2087 of 3248

Not to be super-pissy and to denounce the fake casting thread! But half of you guys just seem to be listing popular director and actor combinations at random.


Like I still can't get my brain behind a David O. Russell Thirteenth Warrior.

post #2088 of 3248

A different take...


ONE SHOT (1974)


Steve McQueen as JACK REACHER



Faye Dunaway as HELEN RODIN



Yaphet Kotto as EMERSON



Nick Nolte as CHARLIE



Jason Robards as ALEX RODIN





John Wayne as CASH



and James Mason as THE ZEC


Not so sure about Mason as The Zec but I'm pretty happy with the rest of the cast.

Maybe Pasolini? (Foreign director, kinda creepy looking, dabbled in acting. Assuming you wanted a parallel to Herzog, that is.)


I could also see John Huston or Peter Cushing in the role.


In any case, great cast. That goes for axelbratoski's 1995 version too. Either McQueen or Russell would've made a great Jack Reacher.

 Three Amigos

Directed by Judd Apatow

Lucky Day - Will Ferrell


Dusty Bottoms - Paul Rudd


Ned Nederlander - Steve Carell


El Guapo - Danny Trejo


Jefe - Antonio Banderas


Carmen - Salma Hayek

post #2094 of 3248

I like it... especially Rudd, but just for the hell of it:


Lucky Day- Jon Hamm

Dusty Bottoms- Jason Bateman

Ned Nederlander- Jason Schwartzman

Carmen- Sofia Veraga

Jefe- Luis Guzman

El Guapo- Danny Trejo

German- Til Schweiger

post #2095 of 3248

I think Charlie Day would make a good Ned Nederlander

post #2096 of 3248

Schwartzman is pretty perfect for Ned. He nails the pseudo-smartness of the character (I can't remember the exact line, but his knowing exactly what plane the german is flying because that was what he flew in 'Little Neddy Goes to War') and the politeness, but also the bursts of anger and sudden seriousness ('I never used trick photography!'). When Charlie Day does angry it feels like a child throwing a tantrum, Schwartzman reads much more adult.


I'd go Rudd for Lucky and either Hamm or Ferrell for Dusty (Hamm does the sardonic asshole (c.f. the Singing Bush scene) thing well, but Ferrell obviously kills at the oblivious confusion), though.

post #2097 of 3248

Honestly, I think Antonio Banderas as Jefe steals the show.

post #2098 of 3248

- Rush (1992)




- Dennis Miller as Jim Raynor



- Uma Thurman as Kristen Cates


- Tom Skerritt as Larry Dodd

- M.Emmet Walsh as Nettle


and Ted Nugent as Will Gaines

post #2099 of 3248

I went with Carell as Ned because he can play the innocence of the character. Michael Scott was like that. While he did try too hard to be liked and funny, which led to him being a bit of an asshole, he was naive about it.
