ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK - Casting Draft - Sign-Up/Discussion - Page 11

Yeah, Monroe was the narrator in my Adam Wingard EFNY (starring Dan Stevens, Hunter).

You're lucky I opted against Wingard as my director. I am too. Monroe would've been my Chock Full o' Nuts Lady if that happened.

I picture Romero walking out of the building, off in the distance, as the intro plays.

 

 

 

And I picture him doing this song to puff himself up before Brain gets the drop on him.

Has it been confirmed that Jaime Lee is the narrator? I've heard that it was Debra Hill as well.

Pretty sure she was. She came back for L.A. too.

Not that anyone asked, but I was so torn between whether to go with Chelsea or Bernie as President.  It came down to Norman Lloyd being a more fun option for Bernie than anyone I could think of for Chelsea.

post #509 of 710

Chelsea would be the Escape From LA role.

Shannon is a fun pick for Romero but I had him down as Brain.
post #511 of 710

I'm surprised at the lack of GAME OF THRONES actors in this draft.  We've only had a few, and I would have pegged several more of them to show up in some fashion or another.

post #512 of 710
EFNY just works better with American actors, I think.

He was on my list too. Helped that I'd just watched "The Guest" just ahead of the draft. My first list had Stevens and him reuniting.

Well, boo to that. Plissken is a European surname.

We're reclaiming our own!

I know, that's what prompted my post.  Aiden's one of the few that made the cut.

He's enough!

It is. My typing on my phone is balls.
post #522 of 710

I assume we might get a bonus pick?  That usually happens for something off the wall.

Two picks tomorrow.

post #524 of 710

Two?  hrrrrrrrm....gotta think of more songs, now.

post #525 of 710
I think I'll have Toronto play New York.

Shannon had to go at some point. Would have felt wrong if he didn't.

post #527 of 710

I liked Shannon as Brain.

I don't watch "Game of Thrones." It looks like it's for nerds.

Yep, he and Chastain gave the best performances of the year in that movie.

Michael Shannon's rubber dummy is pretty good in BvS.

You're missing out on some great cans.

Not seen much, but it's a toss up between Premium Rush and that sorority letter video he did.

WAYNE'S WORLD, easily.

post #543 of 710

Two picks tomorrow?  I thought we were two a day except for the last day.  I only have one more role figured out...

My mistake. One pick tomorrow.

 

That said, you can throw in bonus picks once everyone has drafted.

post #545 of 710

Cool, Slag is a fun bonus pick for me.

Pick any episode he did of Boardwalk Empire, though preferably any time in the last season where he was one of the few highlights.

 

He's also good as the ringmaster(?) in the otherwise crummy remake of 13.

post #547 of 710
I wonder who I'll cast as the World Trade Center...
post #548 of 710

Dennehy was up there on the short list for Cabbie. Nice to see him get a nod as President. Funny to picture him in the wig.

Do you like the stuff he's done with Jeff Nichols? Check out SHOTGUN STORIES if you haven't.

post #550 of 710

Can we just pick our director, then? Not part of the draft proper?
