If the title is too vague, I ask you who (one character or several) you would think would be the ideal choice to play in a movie based off of your favorite videogame. This can include both their looks (how closely they look the part), their attitude (how much they can act like the character), and their performance (how much most likely they would succeed with the part).

Here's just one of my many picks for example:

Game: inFAMOUS
Character: Cole MacGrath
Actor: Sam Worthington
Why: He's been able to hold his own in many films such as Avatar, Terminator: Salvation, Clash of the Titans, etc. He knows how to be the character and turn whatever attitude need be for the character into his own. I think he's an excellent choice.

Note to people wanting to post pictures: Try and keep the pictures no larger than the regular width of the forum page. It gets really hard to load up sometimes and it's more difficult to really see comparisons when their so massive.

i didn't go just by looks, i went by acting too, that's why daniell harris is rebecca, she's an amazing actress, and would do great if a hunter jumped through a window

You obviously didn't see her in the Halloween films then.
She ran like a bitch. ;)

They actually did quite an amazing job on getting the likeness of him into Desmond/Altair/Ezio's model. That's no easy feat.

Agreed.
As such, I feel like no one is better suited than him.

I don't know much about him but the fact that he is a model and is the model for the series. Has he acted in the past too?

I don't believe he has any acting experience. I know that aside from being a fashion model, he's the lead singer of a band. Although he has held multiple jobs on television; mostly interviews, but he was a journalist at one point. So...acting? Less than some. :p

Well you're never too later to learn, right? We should pester Ubisoft to make sure if they make a movie based on Assassin's Creed that he goes into the movie. :)

Definitely.
They did an amazing job with the Assassin's Creed Lineage film (which was a treat to watch) so I would love an official Assassin's Creed film to follow the games' storyline.

Oh my gosh, yes. Lineage was amazing! I think they could do a fantastic job with Francisco in a similar type movie. :tmb:

He can do Ezio & Desmond as well. Only thing that he will need is a voice actor for his role. :p

Unless he can do the accent properly.
If not, I guess a voiceover is appropriate. :)

Nolan doesn't even look like the guy in that pic anymore. He's all grey and middle-aged, now. We'd sooner see Zac Efron playing Nate. But, this is about opinion and not realism.

Anyways, I would like Emma Watson to play Lara, Alan Rickman to play Roth, and Maggie Smith to play Lara's prissy great-aunt. Oh! and Rupert Grint to play one of the people on the Endurance who dies a painful death.

I'd like to see Emma Stone as a badass, she's played nothing but good-girl roles, hell even in Zombieland she was a good girl. I'd like to see her in a more badass action role, I could totally see it. :p

Actually, I could see her, good girl included, as Lili from tekken. XD

No way.
Jacqui Ainsley.

CiaKonwerski
21-03-12, 03:28
Even though she did the motion capture, I definitely don't think she looks much like Madison, even if she had shorter hair. I think Madison's face is a bit more masculine. I've always though Mariska looked like a more "real" version of her, as in someone other than a model.

Catracoth
21-03-12, 03:30
What are you talking about?
Jacqui Ainsley is the face of Madison Paige.

Yeah...I know. :p I feel like QD made Madison's face a little bit more mannish than Ainsley's face however. I don't always think the models should play the characters.

Catracoth
21-03-12, 03:33
Yeah while they did edit her face to look more masculine, I just think the woman you suggested is too old. It shows in her face.

Oh definitely yeah I agree. Haha, If Mariska was younger probably, definitely not now. She would be my ideal though if she was younger. And if Ainsley was an actual actress I would probably choose her.
