As the title says this is the list of actors, I would cast in the key roles, in a remake of Westworld
- as well as the director.
Mickey Rourke was born Phillip Andre Rourke, Jr. on September 16, 1952, in Schenectady, New York, the son of Annette (Cameron) and Phillip Andre Rourke. His father was of Irish and German descent, and his mother was of French-Canadian, English, and German ancestry. When he was six years old, his parents divorced...
“ as The Gunslinger.
Even though the part is a "man" of few words - or perhaps because of it - it will need a true master of the craft to be interesting ... not just a lame action hero.
And Mickey Rourke, I believe, would superbly embody the sense of menace needed for The Gunslinger. ” - krungadoren
Michael C. Hall
Michael C. Hall was born in Raleigh, North Carolina, to Janice (Styons), a guidance counselor, and William Carlyle Hall, who worked for IBM. Michael is a graduate of NYU's Master of Fine Arts program in acting. He is known for the titular character "Dexter" in Dexter
and as mortician "David Fisher" in Six Feet Under
“ as Peter Martin.
His superb performances in Six Feet Under and Dexter establishes to me that he would be ideal to portray the hero's development from an insecure, somewhat nerdy guy to a tough survivor. ” - krungadoren
Christian Charles Philip Bale was born in Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK on January 30, 1974, to English parents Jennifer "Jenny" (James) and David Charles Howard Bale. His mother was a circus performer and his father, who was born in South Africa, was a commercial pilot. The family lived in different countries throughout Bale's childhood...
“ as John Blane.
He is a gifted actor, who would deliver the character's gung ho bravado well ... and ... well ... he just looks the part aka Josh Brolin. ” - krungadoren
Brent Spiner, whose primary claim to fame is his portrayal of the beloved android Data on the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation
, was born and raised in Houston, Texas. His parents, Sylvia (Schwartz) and Jack Spiner, owned and operated a furniture store, and were both from Jewish immigrant families (from Austria...
“ as Chief Supervisor.
He's a fine actor, that sadly has been used to little apart from his Star Trek duties. And it would be a wonderful geeky reference to have Mr. Data running around voicing doom and concerns about robot technology. ” - krungadoren
Alex Proyas has moved effortlessly between helming TV commercials and music videos to feature films. Born to Greek parents in Egypt, Proyas relocated to Australia with his family when he was three years old. He began making films at age ten and went on to attend the Australian Film Television and Radio School along with Jane Campion
and Jocelyn Moorhouse
“ as Director.
Not the obvious choice, I know ... but I wouldn't mind Westworld perceived through the foreboding dark suspense of The Crow and Dark City.
It would make a remake more than just a remake. ” - krungadoren
