Who would you cast in a Chrono movie?
« on: May 16, 2009, 06:04:51 am »
Out of boredom I figured I'd post that good old question that eventually seems to pop up on all anime/video game sites. If they were to do a CT movie who would you cast in what role?

This'll by far be far from a full list from me since all I'd do is populate it with LotR actors and far too many obvious choices or popular names but one guy that I could truely see as either Gasper or Melchior would be Ian McKellen. As for Dalton I'd say James Marsters (Spike from Buffy and Piccolo from the god awful Dragon Ball movie). Spike's nature in that series usually had those comic relief moments yet he could still be a menace which is exactly what would be needed to play Dalton.

In any case what do you guys think? I always find these kinds of topics intresting so I'm eager to see what you guys say ^_~

Hmmm....this would take a while for me to complete, but here's the early list, going for "names" here:

Queen Zeal:  Meryl Streep
Marle:  Anna Farris (too old?)
Gaspar:  Michael Caine
Melchior:  Bill Nighy

Ummmm....thought I had more....more will come!

Jokes:
Dalton:   Conan O'Brien
Frog:  voiced by Morgan Freeman

Heh....already see some good ones and some crazy ones but this one.....
Dalton-Conan O'Brien?!
For the love of all that is good in this world not him! It's already bad enough that Leno is leaving the Tonight Show and being replaced by that humorless turd. Nothing good can come from Conan O'Brian!
(And while I understand it's a joke it still scares the shit out of me :P)

I do like DeVito as Ozzie however. That one seems to fit wonderfully in my mind when I try to put his voice to Ozzie's lines ^_~

I always hate these threads...I wouldn't want a Hollywood-filled Americanized Chrono Trigger movie. I might want a nice television anime series, but that'd be it...and then I would also not care for the dub, so I wouldn't want to cast that either...

Oh, and Leno is a douchebag with terrible writers. Conan trumps all.

Yeah, I think you mean it's bad enough Conan left his own show and was replaced by that humorless turd.


In any case, I wouldn't want to have a movie made, but if it had to be done,

the main actors would have to be older than the characters (14-16 years old, right?)

Crono - Ryan Gosling

Schala - Summer Glau

Frog - Ray Park (The guy who played "Darth Maul", and "Toad" from X men)

Belthasar - John Noble (The guy who plays "Walter Bishop" from Fringe)

Melchior  - Alan Arkin (I like the idea of Michael Caine as Gaspar, and these guys would form quite a trio of gurus)

That's all I got for now.

Robo's voice - James Earl Jones hahaha

Edit: Chrono would have to have red dreadlocks, some bound into spikes with rubber bands. It's the only way I could visualize that crazy do. Too much gel = too much emo/harcore scene kid/not messy enough. Plus people with dreadlocks are often arrested without saying a word. Cause they're so high. Teeheehee.

I'm sort of thinking Aaron Eckhart for Dalton... Odd, I know, but I think he could pull it off.  He would have to be more akin to his character from "Thank You For Smoking" and less Harvey Dent.

I think Bill Nighy would be a great Balthasar.  He'd have that right level of strangeness, a little crazy but a little over-the-top genius.

Gaspar could be... Dang.  I'm suddenly at a loss here.

AARON ECKHART YES!!!!!!!  How did you know I was thinking of him???  If we wanted Dalton to be more sinister and less goofy, I think Aaron or maybe Dominic West (cuz I'm biased) would be perfect!!

Great minds...

Taban - Tom Arnold or John Goodman

Lucca - Zoey Dechanel (Hottest woman in Hollywood)

Marle - Scarlett Johansson (Think of the depth she'd bring to the role! Plus she's the second hottest chick in the business)

Ozzie - Jack Black

Magus - Eric Bana?

But yeah, Ian McKellen would be great for Belthasar I think.
Danny DeVito would be great for Ozzie.
Michael Caine for Gaspar....Perfection.   :lol:

Hmm, for Magus, I don't know Zachary Quinto?  Probably not.

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