Nick Chinlund
Actor, Con Air

Form there Nick attended Brown University and began his quest to reach his dream as an NBA player. During his freshman year he had a career ending injury and decided to take up acting...
“ Marcus Fenix
He just has that vibe for Fenix. He's played soldiers before and straight badass characters as well. He can actually act unlike the wrestlers people choose for movie roles. Nick has range and can actually portray believable emotion that playing Marcus requires. It doesn't hurt that he sounds like him too. ” - bluefalcon60893

Sam Worthington
Actor, Avatar
Samuel Henry John Worthington was born August 2, 1976 in Surrey, England. His parents, Jeanne (Martyn) and Ronald Worthington, a power planet employee, moved the family to Australia when he was six months old, and raised him and his sister Lucinda in Warnbro, a suburb of Perth, Western Australia. Worthington...
“ Marcus Fenix
I decided to add another option for Marcus because Nick Chinlund is over 50, So I chose an actor relatively young and Sam is the best I could come up with. Almost every role Sam has done has been similar to Marcus in some way. Some people choose Dominic Purcell and even though I like Dominic he's not as good of an actor as Sam and hasn't done as many Marcus-esque roles as Sam. ” - bluefalcon60893

Javier Bardem
Javier Bardem is the youngest member of a family of actors that has been making films since the early days of Spanish cinema. He was born in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain, to actress Pilar Bardem (María del Pilar Bardem Muñoz) and businessman José Carlos Encinas Doussinague. His maternal grandparents were actors Rafael Bardem and Matilde Muñoz Sampedro...
“ Dominic Santiago
He'd be the perfect Dom. He looks more similar than any other actor I could find. Javier is one of if not the greatest Spanish actor of all time and probably top 10 working today. He's never worked in an action film that I know of. However, if The Dark Tower gets made I'm sure it'll make more people think of Javier as Dom. There's no other Spanish actor that can portray the emotional distress Dom does in Gears 2 and 3. So he's an excellent choice. ” - bluefalcon60893

Lester Speight
Lester Speight is a film and television actor best known for his portrayal of Terry Tate: Office Linebacker in a series of Reebok commercials that first aired during Super Bowl XXXVII in 2003. The spots feature Speight, a former All-American Football player himself, as a linebacker charged with the no-holds barred enforcement of office policies...
“ Augustus "Cole Train" Cole
He is Cole Train. Theres nothing more I have to say. Terry Crews sucks and isn't big enough to play Cole. He's got muscle no doubt but Mighty Rasta makes him look like a kid and no one can play the Cole Train better then Lester. ” - bluefalcon60893
 
5.
Chris Evans
Christopher Robert Evans began his acting career in typical fashion: performing in school productions and community theater. He was born in Boston, Massachusetts, the son of Lisa (Capuano), who worked at the Concord Youth Theater, and G. Robert Evans III, a dentist. His uncle is congressman Mike Capuano...
“ Damon Baird
I really couldn't find anyone better for the role. Baird is by far my favorite character and Chris has that same smart ass attitude Baird has. I'm not to big on Chris Evans but there's honestly no one better fit for Baird. ” - bluefalcon60893
 
6.
“ Minh Young Kim
He's got the size to play Kim and looks similar as well. Ian Anthony Dale could also work. However I like David better for Kim ” - bluefalcon60893
 
7.
Diane Kruger
Diane Kruger was born Diane Heidkrüger in Algermissen, near Hildesheim, Germany, to Maria-Theresa, a bank employee, and Hans-Heinrich Heidkrüger, a computer specialist. She studied ballet with the Royal Ballet in London before an injury ended her career. She returned to Germany and became a top fashion model...
“ Anya Stroud
Anya is the most important female character in the entire series. So, picking an actress for her took awhile and I'm pretty sure I made an excellent choice. Diane Kruger has done action roles and dramatic roles. She has range and is an excellent actress who would be amazing as Anya. ” - bluefalcon60893

Robert Patrick
Robert Hammond Patrick Jr. was born on November 5, 1958 in Marietta, Georgia, and raised in Columbus, Ohio, the eldest of 5 children.

After leaving college, he took a job as a house painter and continued as such until a boating accident in Lake Erie in 1984...
“ Victor Hoffman
There's a lot of different people that could own this role including Robert Patrick. He's played high ranking military men before with the same commanding attitude Hoffman has so I believe he's very suitable. ” - bluefalcon60893
 
9.
Mickey Rourke
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.

“ Dizzy Wallin
I don't really like Mickey at all but he's just perfect for Dizzy and nobody can argue he's not suited for it either. ” - bluefalcon60893

His father is of Hawaiian descent and his mother, who is from Iowa, is of mostly German ancestry. Jason was raised in Norwalk, Iowa by his mother. After high school...
“ Tai Kaliso
He looks like he could play Tai and is has that tribal look to him. Khal Drogo was the leader of a tribe and Jason straight owned that role so he could play Tai. ” - bluefalcon60893
 
11.
“ Anthony Carmine
Joe could do it if cast. However, Anthony doesn't last very long and you never see his face so it doesn't have a big impact on the story as long as they don't cast some horrible actor for any of the Carmines. ” - bluefalcon60893
 
12.
Lucas Black
Lucas York Black was born on November 29, 1982 in Decatur, Alabama, to Jan (Keenum), an office worker, and Larry Black, a museum worker. Without any formal acting lessons, Lucas made his film debut with a small part in the Kevin Costner film The War at the age of 11. The small role helped him land his next job in the series American Gothic...
“ Ben Carmine
This is just a stab in the dark. Lucas is a decent actor and you won't see his face so it'll be fine. ” - bluefalcon60893
 
13.
Kellan Lutz
Actor, Twilight
Actor and model Kellan Lutz was born in Dickinson, North Dakota, to Karla (Theesfeld) and Bradley Lutz. He has six brothers and a sister, and is of German, as well as smaller amounts of English, Swedish, and Dutch, descent. As a child, his family moved around, and he grew up in North Dakota, the Midwest and Arizona...
“ Clayton Carmine
The only Carmine not to bite the dust is the only one that has any actually muscle on him. Kellan is built and could definitely play Clayton. ” - bluefalcon60893

Ron Perlman
Actor, Hellboy
Ron Perlman is a classically-trained actor who has appeared in countless stage plays, feature films and television productions. Ronald N. Perlman was born April 13, 1950 in Washington Heights, Manhattan, New York. His mother, Dorothy (Rosen), is retired from the City Clerk's Office. His father, Bertram "Bert" Perlman...
“ General RAAM
He just seems like someone who can play RAAM. He could pull off a voice similar to RAAM and kind of looks like him so he could definitely pull him off. ” - bluefalcon60893
 
15.
Rachel Weisz
Actress, The Mummy
Rachel Weisz was born on 7th March 1970, in London, UK, to Edith (Teich), a psychoanalyst, and George Weisz, an inventor. Her father is a Hungarian Jewish immigrant, and her Austrian-born mother, who left Vienna in the 1930s, is of Italian and Austrian Jewish heritage. Rachel has a sister, Minnie, a curator and photographer...
“ Queen Myrrah
Rachel is an excellent choice for Myrrah. She's an amazing actress with incredible range. She hasn't played a villain that I know of. However, I'm sure she could. ” - bluefalcon60893
 
16.
Marisol Nichols
Actress, 24
From her breakout role as "Audrey Griswold" in Vegas Vacation, to her powerful performance in the prison drama Felon, to commanding the Counter Terrorist Unit in 24_, Nichols has consistently garnered award recognition and critical acclaim. Her evocative performances have cumulated...
“ Maria Santiago
Marisol can act, she's Spanish and looks similar to Maria so I don't see why she isn't suited for Maria. ” - bluefalcon60893
 
17.
Rachael Taylor
Actress, Transformers
Rachael Taylor grew up in Tasmania, Australia, with her parents Nigel and Christine Taylor. She began modelling during her teens, working for the Skye-Jilly International agency. She competed for Miss Teen Tasmania, as well as the Miss Universe/Miss World state finals. She moved to Sydney to further her modeling career as well as to pursue acting...
“ Samantha Byrne
Pretty much every role Rachael has done has been action, gun fighting, or things like it. She may be blonde but that's nothing hair dye can't change. She's Australian like Claudia Black who's the voice actor for Sam which makes her even more similar. Rachel would be an amazing choice. ” - bluefalcon60893
 
18.
William Hurt
William McChord Hurt was born in Washington, D.C., to Claire Isabel (McGill) and Alfred McChord Hurt, who worked at the State Department. He was trained at Tufts University and The Juilliard School and has been nominated for four Academy Awards, including the most recent nomination for his supporting role in David Cronenberg's A History of Violence...
“ Adam Fenix
He for sure looks like Adam and can play a character like him. One of the problems with Nick Chinlund playing Marcus is he's to old to have someone like Hurt play his dad. However, if Sam Worthington got cast then Hurt would work. ” - bluefalcon60893
 
19.
Aldis Hodge
Aldis Alexander Basil Hodge was born in Onslow County, North Carolina. His parents, Yolette Evangeline Richardson and Aldis Hodge, Sr., served in the U.S. Marine Corps. His mother is from Florida and his father is of Dominican heritage. Hodge played both the clarinet and the violin as a child, but as an adult his focus is on the violin; he purchased his first at the age of 18...
“ Jace Stratton
Young black guy capable of playing a soldier. I thought of having Michael B. Jordan play him but I didn't like it. Even though Michael did his voice I think Aldis would be a better fit to actually play him in a movie. ” - bluefalcon60893
 
20.
“ Richard Prescott
He just feels right as some uptight upper class snob like Prescott. ” - bluefalcon60893
 
21.
“ Bernadette Mataki
She's around Bernies age and could pull off the role just as well as anyone her age. Plus, who wouldn't want a Bond girl to play her. ” - bluefalcon60893

Zack Snyder

Snyder made his feature film debut with the 2004 remake Dawn of the Dead and has gone on to be known for his comic book movies and superhero films...
“ Director
Zack was born to direct a movie like Gears. 300 is an amazing movie and if he can bring that same skill to a Gears of War movie then everyone who's played Gears will enjoy it. ” - bluefalcon60893
