Who should play Julius Root?

Which actors would you like to cast? What do you want to see? What would you do if you were the director?

Who should play Julius Root?

Postby ArtemisFowlfan96 » Sat 14th Mar 2009

Okay, guys. I think I have, in my opinion, found our Julius Root. Give it up for Miguel Sandoval. He has played (mostly minor roles) in Medium, Gotta Kick It Up, 7th Heaven, Batman Beyond, Air Bud: World Pup, Seinfeld, Jurassic Park, Law & Order, The X Files, and SO many other movies! Here's a link for some images of him:

Anyway, who do you think Root should be played by?

Thanks.

The world is a strange place....

Dr. Spencer Reid, played by Matthew Gray Gubler, on Criminal Minds, is the most amazing guy in the world. And HE'S ALL MINE!!!

Hello everyone! I'm new here, but i had also sort of looked at Robert DeNiro for Julius Root. He just seems like he would fit the character nicely.

Artemis: And one more thing. About my name - Artemis - you were right. In London, it is generally a female name, after the Greek goddess of archery. But every now and then a male comes along with such a talent for hunting that he earns the right to use the name. I am that male. Artemis the hunter. I hunted you.


Holly: Are you grinning, Artemis? For some reason I get the feeling you're wearing that smug smile of yours.

I thought maybe Dennis Franz:

He played Andy Sipowicz on NYPD blue, and from what I've seen there, he'd make a pretty good Root. Maybe a good Homage to the cop genre.

Dennis Franz and Miguel Sandoval both seem about equal. I can't decide. :?

J.K. Simmons has always been what I imagine Julius Root to look like, he'd make the perfect Root;

I'd say they're both good candidates, but all elves do have darker tones of skin. It's right there in the Fowl Files.

J. K. Simmons? Never heard of him. By the picture I think he would need to gain a little mire weight. And with the darker skin, you could always put stage makeup
on him. Or give him a spray tan. x3

Then I think he would be perfect.

JK Simmons plays J. Jonah Jameson in the spiderman trilogy :3

Like you said, a spray tan could fix his skin tone, and if you watch the old spidey movies he can pull off the 'angry boss' so well!

It's not really that simple, changing someones skin color to represent another race (though in this case species) is highly controversial. It stems back to the American civil war. Yes RDJ did it but not without getting some noise about it.
Hiring actors of color is a much better way to go.

Damn, I forgot that elves have a dark skin tone. I was gonna suggest Danny DeVito because he has the same stature that I'd imagined Root having and I know that he could play the role because he's been in Mafia movies and he was great as Matilda's dad.
But I'm gonna go back to the drawing board on this one.
