I think Dane Cook should play Crono. We'll see how long Crono remains a mute.
Hah.

Oh and Bekkler, John Noble as Belthasar is fucking perfect--I've thought that he'd be good for the role for quite a well, but sadly Scarlett Johansson is just too bosomy for the part of Marle. And Michael Caine would be fucking hilarious as Gaspar--that'd do quite well. Melchior needs someone a little heavier, in my opinion; someone booming and a little intimidating. John-Rhys Davies might work, but I don't really know.

I think the playable characters are the most challenging to cast--most of 'em need to be in their early twenties, otherwise it'd either look terrible (i.e. with actors too old for the part) or it'd be a fucking teen movie (with actors the "right" age for the part). Aaron or Shawn Ashmore could have made a decent Crono, if they were a little younger.

This would be live action right?  Not animated?

You do know we're not actually casting a movie, right Delta Dragon...?

I think I'd have to boycott a movie. The addition of vocals to the experience alone would be enough to put a stain on things for me, if they didn't match the characters that I've had in my head all these years.

I found the added cutscenes in the PSX and DS versions strange in themselves. Not bad, but they deviated a bit from my impressions from the game with their added visual detail. Wasn't sure what to make of them.

Can't imagine an actor playing Crono, really. Think it'd be a worse experiment than Russel Crowe's upcoming version of Robin Hood!

What do you think?   :picardno I'm being entirely hypothetical.

Righto, it's hypothetical: if you see it "easier" to cast an animated movie, then let's hear those suggestions.

especially since in that case, casting just means voices...

Oi!  Oh gosh... Now everyone's going to start naming Anime voice actors like Steve Blum (or whatever his name is)...

As a non-anime type of guy (well, for the most part), I forbid the use of anime voice actors!

(and I thus forbid my forbidden comment!)

ZOMG!! Why didn't I reply to this before!?

Obviously, the immortal (literally, sort of) Adrian Paul should play Magus:


Give Adrian Paul a scythe, color his hair blue, and give him whatever personality you ascribe to Magus...and subtract the Scottish Highlander accent. There's never been any doubt in my mind, though it helps to imagine Magus with tied-back hair.

If you need a poll just put up "Christian Bale as Magus y/n"

Gregg Berger could be good as a voice if it's animated.

These just came to me!


Dalton = Mark Hamill.

Melchior = Drew Carey (Have you guys seen him lately?)

Doan = Alan Arkin

Marle = Linda Cardellini (Check her out as a blonde)

Mark Hamill, holy shit, he'd be hilarious. Especially if he decided to act like an over-the-top, buffoon of a villain. Though hot, Linda Cardellini is twice as old as Marle, but whatever. Alan Arkin would be an exceptional Doan.

Drew Carey as Melchior...interesting, can he act well?

He did okay as Geppetto, but generally, no.  :(

But he's old enough now, it's Bob Barker Syndrome. As soon as you host Price is Right, your hair will change from dark to white. (<-rhyme) Slap a moustache on that dude and BAM! You got a pacifist swordsmith!

Man, I recently realized I don't know of any child actors anymore. I thought the kid who played Leech in Xmen 3 would make a great Janus, but he's too old now. Linda Cardellini is gorgeous, and I remember her from her role of Freaks and Geeks. At that age (like 10 years ago?) would have been perfect as Marle. Damn you, TIME!!!!

I think the subject is a little misleading... "Who would you cast in a Chrono movie?" Does that mean who would YOU play in a Chrono movie? or what everyone has been doing?
