The Butler I think That Would Kinda Work.

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

My Butler Pick - and other notes

Post by TuathaDeDanann » Sun 30th Jan 2011

I know most people want Jason Statham to be Butler, but whenever I read about Butler in the books I've always imagined a bald Liam Neeson. After his roles in Taken, The A-Team, Batman Begins, Michael Collins (my favorite), and his new movie coming out called Unknown, I think he may be able to look tough enough for the part, but still have the softness to enjoy reading romantic novels! (just like Butler)

I know he's probably 10 yrs too old, but he has the build. He is really tall! (And Butler ages prematurely for a while anyway). Liam's all Irish, but just maybe he could pass as Eurasian???

I would also love to see mostly unknown Irish/European actors for other various roles. I think that just like the Original Star Wars & Harry Potter, it's nice to give parts to new actors we've never seen before. I think it keeps the story fresh and exciting.

While Liam's about 25 years too old for the part, he's certainly pulled off Middle-Eastern in Batman Begins, and he was even a ninja in that. However, I'd rather not see him in this.

The Butler I think That Would Kinda Work.

Ok so the person that I think will work would be..... PitBull. I don't know why, but every time I read about Butler he pops up in my head. If you didn't know who he was he is that Rapper/Singer dude who sometimes does it in Spanish. So here he is.....

Sorry about it kinda being blurry, it was the best one I could find.

he's not bad, but he doesn't look too bodyguard-ish in my opinion though

I thought Butler as more of a gentleman and not looking so gangster-ish.
To me, a James Bond actor like Pierce Brosnan would do the job perfectly.

Hello all! :D

Just a quick note to say that this topic is the biggest topic on who should play Domovoi Bulter, but there were a few little side-suggestions and mini topics. In an effort to keep everything in one place for the movie's release, I have merged a bunch of these topics into this one.

This thread will be our official, Domovoi Bulter - Dream Cast thread, where we can discuss who would play Butler in our ideal worlds. Have fun! :D
