Well, you'd have to give him a ginger wig, and replace every line where he says "bloody hell" with "woah" - not convinced that would work, somehow :hmm:

I am thinking that this thread is turning a bit too unrealistic and spoof like. I am however willing to give it a last chance. If there are anymore completely silly castings it´s over and out for this thread in Muggle Studies.

Peakes July 7th, 2012 7:38 pm

Re: Re-cast the movies!
 
Much appreciated Hes.

Well, 100+ posts and we've had a lot of suggestions, the majority of them at least have been serious and had some thought given to them; of course, it gets a bit boring just looking at lists of names, so maybe now is the time for some discussion of those suggestions?

For my part, there have been some actors and actresses listed that I had never even heard of, and some of them have been quite inspired IMO - I wasn't familiar with Adrien Brody for example, but could see him as Professor Snape; then again I find it hard to imagine anyone doing a better job than Alan Rickman :)

So... you've seen plenty of ideas listed, what are your thoughts? There's been little mention of the trio - this would, IMO, be the hardest part to re-cast, as I think they really did strike gold with Dan, Emma and Rupert in terms of getting a trio who grew into their parts and stuck together for ten years of film-making; having to change actors part way through would have been a tough obstacle to overcome.

Would you re-cast the trio as 10/11 year olds with a view to remaking the films over the seven years of student life at Hogwarts? Or would you start with them a little older, and perhaps condense the film-making process (not the story) into a shorter period, maybe filming some of the instalments back-to-back?

One of the strengths of the films is the casting, IMO. However, are there any characters whose casting you feel cannot be improved upon from the originals? Conversely, are there any parts you think were mis-cast?

To quote my old English teacher... "Discuss."

I have just been watching Doctor Who and it struck me that Alex Kingston (River Song) could make a good Bellatrix.

I don't see enough craziness there; Bella is deranged, psychotic and unpredictably violent. Alex is a bit too homely... with red hair, I could possibly see her as Molly...?

Right, I'll continue by answering some of my own questions here.

This is one thing I'd had in mind since posting this thread; I think Dan did an exceptional job from the start, but it took until Prisoner of Azkaban for Emma and Rupert to really hit their stride. There are plenty of examples of actors being older than their characters, and whilst there's less leeway with child actors, I think that you could pass off a 13-year old as an 11-year old without too much of a problem, and if you make the films over seven years - then they're still only 19/20 by the end.

If I had to pick, I'd say Alan Rickman (Snape), Warwick Davis (Flitwick), Dame Maggie Smith (McGonagall) and Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid) out of the major characters - I find it hard to imagine anyone else in those roles. I'll also have a very hard time seeing anyone other than Dan Radcliffe as Harry, the only current child actor I can think of that has the look of Harry is Asa Butterfield (right down to the untidy hair) - but at 15, he's already a bit too old.

River Song's character isn't crazy like Bella, but that doesn't necessarily mean the actress playing the part can't play deranged and crazy. I myself wouldn't describe Alex a homely. I think she is an excellent actress who has played many parts, some of which are not what I would describe in any way as homely. She is capable imo of playing a deranged, psychotic Bellatrix. That's just my opinion on her as an actress.

A few more to consider . . .

Sirius Black:
Craig Horner
Karl Urban

Severus Snape:
Craig Parker

Voldemort:
Doug Jones

Re: Re-cast the movies!
 
For a young Tom Riddle: Asa Butterfield. He played Mordred in the TV series Merlin, so I can totally see him playing a young Tom. I can also see him as playing Harry. I know, I know, he has BLUE eyes, but so did Dan, and Asa might not be allergic to contacts like Dan was. (Asa also played Hugo in Hugo)

As for the Robert Downey Jr. suggestion for Sirius I read a few post back, that is a great choice! I can totally see him as Sirius.

I agree with Robbie Coltrane but not just because he suited Hagrid but because, for me, Hagrid in the books seemed to be very much based on his portrayal of the ghost in Blackadder's Christmas Carol.

Agreed. Although I do think Saoirse Ronan would have been brilliant as Hermione :)

http://s13.postimage.org/wwc6rnp7b/desde_mi_cielo_2.jpg

I love that she can look very plain sometimes (Atonement is a good example), but she can also be stunningly beautiful as well. She can do both extremes, and I think it would have made the Yule-Ball scene really special in the fourth film :)

I have a couple suggestions for Lily, too. My favorite would be Rachel Hurd-Wood (already mentioned :)), but I also like Lily Cole (who has not had many roles yet, but I think she's very good) and Natascha McElhone (if I was going with the more mature casting of that generation).

http://s11.postimage.org/dzfq1fyj7/1...0620022901.jpghttp://s9.postimage.org/n2n4lqktr/936full_lily_cole.jpghttp://s16.postimage.org/9li4tqtlx/thumbbig_168761.jpg

I like them because they each have really a unique, special presence on the screen that stays with you, and I think that's crucial in order to play Lily, because the role is so small. And of course, they all have beautiful eyes like DanRad! :)

Re: Re-cast the movies!
 
I was looking at Tim Roth earlier and it occured to me he might make a good Voldemort. He can do menacing brilliantly.

As for your earlier question Peakes about who was miscast, I wasn't overly convinced about Jim Broadbent as Slughorn, well though he acted it. I'd rather have seen someone like David Suchet - he wears crazy moustaches well. (Poirot!) I also wasn't taken with Adrian Rawlings as James Potter. I'd like to have seen Jude Law with dark hair and glasses.

I agree that it's hard to replace Alan Rickman, the only reason I think Adrien Brody would be a better choice for the role is simply for age reasons. Snape in the series is in his mid thirties to early forties and Alan in real life is in his mid sixties. Doesn't stop me from loving him but it does irk me a little bit.

I'm one who thinks that the trio were just an okay casting. Personally I think Emma was the most talented and I'm not all that impressed with Dan as an actor. The reason it's hard for me to recast the trio is because of the significant growth of the actors, the actual physical growth. The pool of child actors isn't all that huge so if you're looking to recast the trio you have to choose someone who is in their late teens or early twenties and extrapolate that they would be the perfect Harry at age 11.

Or would you start with them a little older, and perhaps condense the film-making process (not the story) into a shorter period, maybe filming some of the instalments back-to-back?
I would probably opt for option two in this scenario simply because we are used to child actors playing younger than they are due to required maturity of the actor and the demands of the role and of the business.

Quote:

Perfection for me was achieved in McGonagall almost exclusively. I like Robbie Coltrane as Hagrid but not so much that I can't entertain the idea that another actor could or would equal or surpass his performance.

Quote:

Conversely, are there any parts you think were mis-cast?
Harry - not a fan of Dan
Bellatrix - quirky personal reasons, I saw Helena as the perfect Merope though I think she did a good job in the role
James and Lily - both actors were too old, much too old
Bathilda Bagshot - I imagined her to be more of a grandma and less a scary old lady

o0o0o0o0o0o!!! Yes yes yes!! She would have made a great Hermione!

I'll throw out Theo James as a candidate for young Sirius - (his most well known role was as Kemal Pamuk, the Turkish ambassador guy, in Downton Abbey... :eyebrows: :D)

Much as I liked Emma's portrayal, Rebecca Ryan would have also made a great Hermione at the time.

Richard_G. July 8th, 2012 7:21 am

Re: Re-cast the movies!
 
As much as I hate seeing his name all over tumblr in roleplays as Remus, Andrew Garfield would make a very good Cedric, imo. Much closer to what I imagined.

Also, how has Meryl Streep not been mentioned for McGonagall?

Stanley Tucci is outstanding in anything, but I think he'd be a divine Snape. Or, in a complete 180, Arthur Weasley.

Could Christian Bale do Sirius? I feel he's got that good mix of laughing with a deeper sadness and bitterness in his eyes.

I know he doesn't look like the dashing young man Sirius was, though you'll agree that he looks thin enough to slip through the bars of Azkaban :p. Seriously, he's a great actor, he can be cool, serious and crazy at the same time.

I can't see anyone but Alan Rickman as Snape, because, though other actors, like Adrien Brody, can look Snape as well as him, they don't have his voice.

Strange you should mention him; I think Christian Bale would have made an outstanding Harry if the books had been around 10 years earlier - around the time of Empire of the Sun, in other words.

I don't know who that is but I could see Kristin Scott Thomas playing Bellatrix and doing a wonderful job of it. I don't think she needs to be that deranged actually. Villains are usually scarier if they keep their cool at least once in a while.
Also, Liam Neeson as Remus. For some reason I always thought of him as Remus even though I think David Thewlis is fine as well.

Quickquill July 8th, 2012 1:43 pm

Re: Re-cast the movies!
 
Aside from the fact that Harry's hair isn't quite unruly enough in the first two or three films,I have no complaints about the casting. Nor do I think it is a productive discussion to suggest actors for a recasting of the series so soon after it has finally been finished.

I think Jonny Depp would be a great sirius black.

I thought Alan's voice was too deep for Snape, actually. I imagine him with a solid tenor voice, capable of ultrasonic frequencies when Harry starts really pushing his buttons. :lol:

Clearly we're not interested in productivity in this thread :p we're interested in indulging our HP movie fantasies.

What about a dark-haired Dan Stevens for James? He's got a very sweet, open handsomeness about him, not the haughty, beautiful handsome Sirius is supposed to have. I think he'd be a good candidate.

IenjoyAcidPops July 11th, 2012 9:20 am

Re: Re-cast the movies!
 
I'm approaching this less as, "What if another series of films were made now?" than as, "What if the 2001-2011 series hadn't been made, and they were adapting these books now?" An alternate reality rather than a remake. I'm still avoiding any actors who were in the 2001-2011 film series, though. It has nothing to do with being disappointed in cast members from the actual series; on the contrary, I think the casting was the greatest strength of it. I'm also sticking to Brits, just because I want to, with a few notable exceptions.



Tom Baker as Dumbledore
(Glad to see some like-minded Doctor Who fans who’ve already mentioned this one. I’m sure people were suggesting this one back in ’01, but yeah, I’ve wondered about Baker as Dumbledore for years.)

Penelope Wilton as McGonagall

Robert Carlyle as Snape
(I admit to ripping this one off, because I could not think of anyone other than Alan Rickman as Snape until I read the suggestion of Carlyle. He’s not better than Rickman, but I like the choice.)

John Rhys-Davies as Hagrid
(The man's crazy tall anyway, so they wouldn't have to do all that much, effects-wise.)

Martin Freeman as Quirrell

Hugh Grant as Lockhart
(He was almost cast, and although Branagh’s brilliant, Grant’s also a fine choice.)

David Morrissey as Lupin

Geoffrey Rush as Mad-Eye
(One of the first bits of fantasy casting I ever did, before the Goblet of Fire movie even went into production.)

Judi Dench as Umbridge
(I remember picturing this one a lot while reading the book, even though I wouldn’t exactly describe her as “toadlike.” :lol:)

Brian Blessed as Slughorn
(I was rooting for this one, before Jim Broadbent was cast for HBP.)

Tracey Ullman as Trelawney

Ian McShane as Filch

Christian Bale as Voldemort
(I thought about Bale for several roles – including Sirius and Lucius – but this is the one that intrigues me the most.)

Nick Frost as Wormtail
(I really wanted to keep Sirius, Snape, Lupin, and Wormtail in the same age range, and Depp, Carlyle, and Morrissey are all around 50 now, but I struggled with casting Wormtail. I certainly can’t think of anyone better than Timothy Spall, but this isn’t about better as much as different and more current, and I kept coming back to, “Well, Nick Frost would be interesting.”)

Julie Delpy as Bellatrix

Michael Sheen as Lucius Malfoy

Naomi Watts as Narcissa Malfoy
(I was rooting for this one before Helen McCrory was cast for HBP.)

Tim Roth as Fenrir Greyback
(I was rooting for this one before Dave Legeno was cast for HBP – and before I realized Greyback wouldn’t be an actual character in that movie.)

Jonny Lee Miller as Yaxley

Johnny Depp as Sirius
(I thought about whether it's too obvious a choice, but if it's too obvious a choice, I think that's because it's a great choice.)

Karen Gillan as Tonks
(Doctor Who fans know her as Amy Pond.)

Albert Finney as Vernon Dursley
(This is more motivated by wanting Finney involved somewhere, because Vernon’s not a role with much depth, but Albert Finney as Vernon fits.)

Joanna Lumley as Petunia Dursley

Lesley Manville as Molly Weasley

Rowan Atkinson as Arthur Weasley

Ian McKellen as Ollivander

Michael Caine as Barty Crouch
(As with Albert Finney as Vernon, this one is more about getting this actor involved somewhere – but I still like it.)

Steve Coogan as Barty Crouch Jr.
(I don’t know why. Maybe I irrevocably connect Caine and Coogan now after The Trip [and if you haven’t seen the scene where he and Rob Brydon do dueling Michael Caine impressions, you must find it], but there’s something about this one.)

Catherine Tate as Rita Skeeter
(Doctor Who fans will know her as Donna Noble - and she's also a great comic actress.)

Timothy Dalton as Scrimgeour
(I still insist that Dalton would have been better. I was disappointed with Bill Nighy, which still feels strange, because I like Bill Nighy.)

Simon Pegg as Xenophilius Lovegood

Stephen Fry as Aberforth
(I wanted someone who could just as well play Dumbledore, and who’d probably have a sort of similar rhythm to the person playing Dumbledore. There’s also the curiosity factor here, though, of what would Stephen Fry be like as this much darker, bitter figure in the Dumbledore clan?)

The ones I feel the strongest about are Tom Baker, Johnny Depp, Naomi Watts, Tim Roth, and Timothy Dalton, and the hardest one to cast was Bellatrix. Bellatrix, Snape, Hagrid, McGonagall, and Voldemort were the parts for which I struggled the most with selecting alternatives. Those are also the characters where I always, always picture the actors from the movies in my mind’s eye when rereading the books.

I wondered about the older actors - like, if I'm fantasy-casting a movie with 2012 in mind, should I really go for actors as old as Tom Baker, Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, and Stephen Fry, for a series as long as this? But it's fantasy-casting, so in a fantasy scenario, why not assume they'd live long enough to play these roles in their entirety?

Peakes July 11th, 2012 12:09 pm

Excellent post, I'll pick up on your last point in particular:

This was partly my thinking when I consider using slightly older actors for the trio and making them back-to-back over a period of five years, rather than spread over ten years.

The more I think about it, the more I wish with all my might Tom Baker as Dumbledore had happened. Such an eccentric man capable of turning on a dime and being dark and imposing...it would've been beautiful.

To throw a bone to some Game of Thrones actors, Peter Dinklage for Flitwick and/or Griphook. And Jack Gleeson IS Draco.

I have always thought that if there was to be an American version with American actors, he would be perfect for this part. There is something almost Byron-esque about both Sirius and Johnny Depp.

I would also like to put in a punt - as this is fantasy and we can therefore ignore the fact that he has now given up acting - for Peter O'Toole as Dumbledore.

I always thought Ian McNeice would make a good Slughorn, too.

Stephen Fry as Cornelius Fudge, perhaps? I just can't see him as Dumbledore. Maybe Aberforth.

Too young maybe? Though I'm sure they could make her look older. Speaking of models/actresses how about Eva Green for Bellatrix? Also too young but might work. She has the looks and she can act. Catherine Zeta Jones would have been good too but it's not the sort of role she usually plays.

I cannot see Matt as Sirius. :lol: Not that I wouldn't love it, but I picture Sirius to be more..ahem..sexy. :rolleyes: (Well as sexy as someone can be for being in Azkaban for 12 years, but you know) I bet Matt could pull it off though.

:tu: I agree with Asa. He could be a young Tom too. (As I suggested a page or so back)

Can't you just imagine this as Sirius sitting under the tree in SWM?

Barnes has been really popular as a young Sirius. Especially on Youtube. I do agree with this fan casting. he just has that..look?

How about James McAvoy as James? Or Remus? Or even Sirius? :scared: This is what happens when I brings one of my favorite actors into this...I picture him as everyone. I can see him being that fun teacher that everyone loves that also has a dark secret. I can also see him playing a crazy escaped prisoner from Azkaban, but ends up not being so crazy after all...I can also picture him as Snape, but I'm not going to go into that..:relax:



His hair is a bit too dark for Remus though..

I love the idea of James McAvoy but I have the same problem you have - who would he play?

You know? He might make a good Barty Crouch Jr. He has a sweet look about him, one that could get you to trust him, but then he could also play that villainous guy working in the shadows.

I'm really sad right now - I found a great suggestion for a James just the other day but now I can't remember who it was.

Oh I can see him as Crouch Jr. now too. Although I personally think David was perfect as Crouch Jr., he'll stick in my fantasy cast. :agree: For playing a baddie of sorts I think he could be a good Quirrel even. Or even Lucius as well, if we planted a wig on him of course. Maybe I should just keep McAvoy out of my mind, I'll just cast him as everyone at this rate.

I'm sure you'll remember. :)

Johnny Depp would be awesome! Personally, I thought pre-Azkaban Sirius would look exactly like Johnny Depp. But from what I remember, the book described him as having lost his good-looks so in my imagination, post-Azkaban Sirius would be a lot less attractive. He would be really skinny with long, matted hair, sunken eyes, and really skeleton-like. But even as post-Azkaban Sirius, I think Johnny Depp would be great for the role because he is a great actor and if you've seen him in any Tim Burton movies, you know he can really change his appearance!

My new favorite Ginny: Georgie Henley! :)
http://i.imgur.com/6tt8P.jpg?1http://i.imgur.com/Nbpk2.jpg?1
Although Bonnie fits the physical description much better, I think Georgie acts much more like canon-Ginny. She's really funny, lively, and bold, and I think she would fit right in w/the rest of the Weasley bunch (would have been great to see her opposite the twins & Rupert, especially! All of them very animated.)

Also from Narnia, I think Skandar Keynes could play a young James Potter in SWM (the hair :love:):

Although Depp looks like Sirius, I don't think the personality of the character is the best fit. I'd actually like to see his interpretation of Alastar Moody, even though the make-up team would have their work cut out for them making him look the part.

I think Johnny would be excellent as an eccentric character like Moody. The makeup shouldn't be a problem; wasn't Gleeson's only makeup the strapped on magic eye?

I believe so, yes, but Depp eternally looks quite young and Moody was described as being a very weathered-looking fellow in the books. Gleeson looked much more appropriate for the roll on his own.

True about his looks, but makeup technique is quite advanced. Wasn't there a Brad Pitt (?) movie where he was a very old man?

Although I like Peter Davison well enough, I'm not sure he'd be good in that role. I have to say that of the "modern" era of Doctor Who, I was a bit disappointed in his portrayal there. I don't think that's a good genre for him. He seems well suited for a different sort of character -- he was quite good in The Last Detective series, for example.

Actually I like Roth, I think he's a fine actor, but he's just not Snape. It would be interesting to see his interpretation; he did say he'd have been a different Snape. I wonder about his costume since the buttoned up Snape was AR's idea.

Ok, lemme see.

Dumbledore: either Michael Caine or Charles Dance. Wait, I actually think Charles Dance could make a good DE, maybe Yaxley?

Lupin: The Fassbender for sure.

Snape: I really could see Daniel-Day Lewis. He's a bit too handsome for Snape though. But something about him reminds me of Snape. I think it might be his lankness and he's really quite angular.

McGonagall: I cannot even contemplate it. Maggie Smith is near perfection for the role!

Umbridge: Meryl Streep. Seriously. Imelda Staunton was amazing, but I would kill to see le Streep at it.

Lockhart: Kenneth Branagh or Colin Firth.

Draco: Jack Gleeson. He plays a blonde snot well enough in Game of Thrones.:p

Sirius: Mark Strong.

Hmm, I can't think of any more. Heck, just divide the roles equally between Meryl Streep and Gary Oldman. That outta do it.:yuhup:

He was one of the actors considered for Slughorn originally though.

If they hadn't already used him for Vernon, Richard Griffiths would've been the perfect casting.
