Which Would Be A Better Butler?

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

<span style='font-size:8pt;line-height:100%'><span style='color:black'><div align=right>Okay, yeah, I know. You're probably wondering 'WTF nonsense is she spewing? She crazier then a goblin with a AA battery powered softnose' but I'm totally serious xP

I told my dad about the rumor of Jason becoming Butler. After a while, he finally replied with "Wouldn't The Rock be better?" He's sorta right :o

They have a lot in common. Though Jason as more of the hairdo, The Rock looks more Eurasian, is uber bulky, and is really tall (Not saying Jason isn't, but he isnt as much)

Truthfully, I really want Jason to get the role still. I like him as a better actor :wub:

Well...what do you think?</div></span></span>

The Rock is a great idea, but I still voted for Statham.

The only problem with the rock is that he has too much personality for Butler. Butler, particularly in the first book, is very cold+efficient. He doesnt crack cheesy jokes etc. the way the rock tends to.

I think the rock is a great actor for the roles he plays, but to me, hes a little too "fun" to play Butler :(

<span style='font-size:8pt;line-height:100%'><span style='color:black'><div align=right>Lol, nicely put XD

Exactly, Jason is better to that degree as well. I just can't explain the reason why I don't want The Rock to play it >.<;;</div></span></span>

Out of the two, I'd say Jason! I haven't seen him in any movies, but I've seen a couple of trailers, and in one he was in a suit...and he looked really COOL! B)

If Jason Statham didn't exist, I would have said Other, and gone for Vin Diesel :wub: I think his starring role in The Pacifier captured Butler's emotional and caring personality, as well as his kick-ass side in the action scenes! :D

<span style='color:orange'>Maybe I'm crazy, but I'm thinkin' somebody older would be cooler. I like the Statham thing, and I voted for it! But possibly...Laurence Fishburne? Or Ed Harris? Possibly even Bruce Willis... :lol: </span>

They're gonna have a hard time pleasing me with who they cast as Butler. Don't get me wrong, I love Handsome Rob! But... He seems a little small to me. Not that he's short or skinny or anything, but they always relate Butler to a mountain. Or a tree. Something massive and imposing. And Jason just doesn't do that for me... But I'm probably just really picky! :D

Anyone in mind who does do that though? Im all out of ideas, but I like Pirofan's :)

I agree with you that ideally, we want someone as close to Colfer's descriptions as possible. ^_^




Hmm...

Maybe they should just pick up some random mobster off the street and shave his head. That'd be intimidating!

...I'm just kidding. Seriously. He might murder whoever they end up casting for Artemis, and then we'd have to wait even longer for the movie to come out!
