Thread: Thorin Oakenshield
If not, what actor do you think is best suited for the role?
That's what we know as far as confirmed cast so far. I am not very good with names of actors, so... I couldn't give you a good guess as to who it might be
A number of folk have suggested Sean Connery for Smaug, but I think he's all wrong for the part, and he's already been a dragon to boot. This may be off the wall, but just to get the ball rolling on this thread: What do you think about Sean Connery in the role?
Dwarfs have already been established with Gimli as being vaguely Scottish, so that fits. And Connery has plenty of Kingly Gravitas and yet a wry sense of humour. So that would work for him too. Indeed, the more I think about it, the more I like the idea .
It is bordering on the ridiculous.
What about Roger Moore as Smaug...................
Brad Pitt as Bilbo,and 'Canoe' Reeves to play all of the dwarves utilising his skills plus CGI to pull off the big name acting coup of the century.Huzzah
Please, no more who'll play who threads........lets put our heads together and make this site worth reading.
I thank you.
Many of us have fun wondering what the roles would be like with some of our favourite actors in the parts. And yes, there are many excellent little known actors who deserve a shot. If you want to introduce us to some unknowns you've heard of, or tell us why Brad Pitt and Roger Moore would be totally wrong for whichever role (to which I would likely agree), knock yourself out.
Just try not rain on everyone else's parade .
Although I agree with GB that thinking about the the film's outcome is exciting, and it would be great if our faves' got picked ! Can't wait until its out btw! Do you think it will be in the U.S. first?
I wouldn't be surprised actually, if the film is released simultaneously. Now, any more ideas on Thorin?
By the way, Lester Cat, I neglected to mention how funny your sarcasm was. I particularly enjoyed your comment about "Canoe" Reeves playing all the Dwarfs with CGI . Very witty.
i'm not trying to rain on parades, i just get a bit stupid now and again (i'm at a funny age)
Enjoy the forum, for all it's daftness, and insight that's beyond me sometimes.
(although,that photo that was sent in of a tarmac road was funny,sorry BD)
But really, are there no actors that you've seen that you think might be good as Thorin? If it's a lesser known actor, we do all have the Google .
PS. Big fan of Bruce Lee as well. When water goes in the teapot, it becomes the teapot. Be water my friend. Bruce Lee.
