David J. Pedersen's Blog of All Things
Much to my dismay, hasn’t called yet to make an Angst movie. In order to provide Mr. Lucas some inspiration while surfing my blog, I’ve thrown together my own casting call for Angst the movie.
has great timing and can also be charming. A friend recommended , who is certainly versatile enough. He even looked the part in . and both suggested . I always love it when comedians take on serious roles. While Angst isn’t always serious, he certainly can be.
There is only one guy who I have in mind, and that’s . The man is a beast, and for anyone who plays MMOs you know he’d make a great ‘‘. He’s got the size, and looks like he has a great sense of humor. (He is smiling in most of the pictures I see on the internets)
Hector is ex-military, a vicious fighter, a mentor, and more than a little cocky. is my first pick. did a great job of going ‘feral’ as in . He can definitely play ‘military’ as well.
This part requires someone intelligent, incredibly book smart but at the same time the character doesn’t always think outside of the box. can definitely do intelligent. I really think that could play Dallow very well. He’s definitely the right size, and his time on shows his comfort with being smart, and at times funny.
My friend Holly recommended from and . She certainly looks the part.
My friend is certain that Victoria is based on her, and I’m not a brave enough man to disagree. I’ve always had in mind when envisioning the princess. (If you question whether or not she can act, check out her Saturday Night Live skits.)
Hmmm…I struggled with this one. It’s tough to find an overweight middle-age acress in Hollywood these days (huh). And while my wife is perfect, of course, Heather tends to be not perfect. (I’ll leave it at that so I don’t have to spend the next week on the couch.) Her choice, and I think it’s a good one, is from . I also think (, ) could do this.
He’s powerful, arrogant, and gets his ass kicked all over the place. While I think would be ideal, my (drooly) wife disagrees. So, my first choice is from . Everything about the character ‘Nathan Petrelli’ convinces me he would be a great choice.
Additional Characters for the Angst Casting Call
People hate the Queen. She is a control freak who doesn’t seem to like anyone and then covers that in pageantry. from would do an amazing job at this. She may not look the part, but she could definitely play it. Alice Krige, the from could easily be an almost-evil queen that everyone tends to dislike.
Captain Guard Tyrell
Tyrell is a stoic, nose to the grindstone, stick to the rules (mostly) supporting character. always comes across as very sincere in the movies I’ve seen him in. (recently in ) could easily do this, too.
There are a lot of characters in Angst, and even though Graloon is a ‘minor’ character, I feel as though he plays an important enough role throughout the books to garner attention. from may just be the right person for this part.
Young (sort of), cute, and badgering to the point of annoyance. Aerella has been cheated of a normal life, and is very needy because of that. () would do a great job in this role. from could also do this.
In spite of being in a limited number of chapters, Anderhol’s a big character. was my too-obvious choice for this part. I know that could, no doubt, do this very well. His presence would easily fill the role.
Think smarmy, over the top, and given more power than he should. After seeing as in , I’m convinced he would have loads of fun in this role. from the 2nd and 3rd movies would also do an amazing job of being more than a little sleazy.
