This is a silly article

This article is silly. Coming from a source other than the computer games, trading card game, novels, RPG, or manga, its content is not part of official Warcraft lore, but nevertheless has become part of the culture belonging to the World of Warcraft community.

This page is about 'suggested Warcraft movie actors ideas in the next Warcraft Movie. They haven't been uncovered as of today, but you can propose here the ones you'd like to see in the main roles. Discussion will occur on the Talk page. This page is intended to be similar in idea to Rumored Races.

Since the plot of the film has not yet been announced, any major characters can be discussed. Some are listed below, but feel free to add.

Aside from the obvious, we would like to refrain from suggesting reuniting the cast of The Lord of the Rings, so consider carefully if you intend to add one of them.


WARNING!


The time, characters and places of the movie aren't known yet, so everything is possible, meaning that maybe nothing on this page will be true in the future. This is a plain supposition board, nothing here must be believed as true information.

Do not begin flaming those listed if you simply do not like them. This discussed their professional merits for the roles (or personal reasons for rejecting them), it is not a critique of their lifestyles or previous performances!


Magna Aegwynn

Dame Maggie Smith

Why?
  • She's attacked the role of Minerva McGonagall with a gusto rarely seen in actors these days, and might be open to an even more fantastic setting than Hogwarts.
  • Smith is the right appearance for Aegwynn after she transfers power to Medivh.
  • She can capture the full range of emotion displayed by Aegwynn, from arrogance, to rage, to grief, to humor.
Why not?
  • Dame Maggie is experienced enough to have the luxury of choosing the roles that interest her the most, and Warcraft may not make the cut.
  • Far too old (Aegwynn looks like under 30).

Alexstrasza the Dragonqueen (voice)

Angelina Jolie

Why?
  • Jolie has previously expressed interest in characters that were mothers, one of the more prevalent sides of Alexstrasza.
Why not?
  • Jolie would not fit Alexstrasza as a dignified matriarch and would come across as "slutty" or "Whorish".

Vanessa Redgrave CBE

Why?
  • The compassion and rage demonstrated by She Who Is Life are comparable emotions to those displayed by some of Redgrave's other characters.
Why not?
  • Apart from the occasional theatre production of Macbeth or A Midsummer Night's Dream, Redgrave has no particular connection to sci-fi/fantasy.

Aman'Thul

Bono

Why?
  • Has a stong, respected voice.
  • Shows compassion.
  • Can throw in his equality/humanity opinions into his character to fit a Titan.
Why Not?
  • Is not experienced with acting.
  • Might not be interested in a fantasy movie based from a game.
  • No sweet beard.
  • He's got an accent.
  • He's Bono.

Sir Sean Connery

Why?
  • Look at [1] this artwork* by Samwise.

Jason Flemyng

Why?
  • Great ominous voice when electronically altered.

Arthas Menethil

Christian Bale

Why?
  • With bleach, he can look like Arthas.

Jason Isaacs

Why?
  • All he needs is hair dye and skeletal armor.

Sean Bean

Why?
  • Physically resembles Arthas in terms of build and hair color.
  • Can flawlessly portray a knight.
  • Has been known to play both good and evil characters, so Arthas's defection wouldn't be a problem.
  • His age may be a bonus when portraying the corrupted Arthas who features appear to have aged.
Why not?
  • Arthas might be considered too similar to Boromir.
  • Depending on what timeframe the film will document, he might be just a touch too old.
  • Arthas is immortal, therefore his aging process is halted indefinitely. Sean Bean is in his 40s, therefore is not suiting for a 26-year old.

Vladimir Kulich

Why?
  • Resembles Arthas.
  • Has portrayed medieval knights in some of his movies.
  • Has a very catchy voice for a paladin.
  • Could realistically portray Athas's fall.

Why?
  • Resembles Arthas.
  • Body build fit perfectly for the character.
  • Experience as a wrestler may come in handy.

  • Proper age.

Archbishop Benedictus

Christopher Lee

Why?
  • Has a strong voice.
  • Can fit the Look of Benedictus.

Clancy Brown

Why?
  • Given the right makeup, he could make a very convincing orc.
  • Good "scary" actor; just watch Highlander.
  • Blackhand could have concievably referred to others as "fat barrel of monkey spunk" and threatened to shove a baton in a subordinate's rectal cavity.
Why not?
  • Might be "too old" for the role.
  • Turned down an offer to reprise his role as The Kurgan in Highlander II: The Quickening due to his allergies to makeup.
  • Blizzard has already stated that the film will not be not be based in the First War, therfore Blackhand would probably not make an appearence.

Al Pacino

Why?

Why Not?
  • A night elf must look young ( who says he can't just contribute his voice? ).

  • His body fits the character.

Chen Stormstout

Samwise Didier

Why not?

Angelina Jolie

  • Not opposed to playing sci-fi/fantasy roles.
  • He got fat.

Illidan Stormrage

Johnny Depp

Why?
  • Illidan is slightly insane at various points during the story, and Depp has displayed the ability to capture unusual roles with great success.
  • Depp might not mind the winged costume.
  • The combination of Illidan fanbase and Johnny fanbase might do a chemistry.
  • He has portrayed Sweeney Todd who was a twisted character.
Why not?
  • Depp lacks the dense muscular build common to night elves in general and Illidan in particular.
  • Depp just doesn't seem to give off Illidan's twisted evil aura.

Michael Rosenbaum

Why?
  • He has proven himself a master of portraying a character falling to darkness and madness, struggling against the evil within himself. Ideal for the role of Illidan.
  • He has a dense muscular build like that of the night elves in general and Illidan in particular.
Why not?

Why?
  • Looks like Jaina.
  • Would enjoy Jaina's character development.
  • Highly experienced in fantasy.
  • After co-starring with warlords, gods, cyclopses, demons, nymphs and a warrior princess, orcs and night elves shouldn't be a problem.

  • Has experience in fantasy roles.

Kael'thas Sunstrider

Johnny Depp

Why?
  • Body built resembles Kael'thas.

  • Wide experience in fantasy.
  • Possible killer combination of Kael'thas fanbase and Depp fanbase.

Edison Chen

Jason Isaacs

Orlando Bloom

Why?
  • Looks elvish and is about the right age to portray Sunstrider.
  • A huge number of non-Warcraft fans will see the film.

  • Has so far played characters with a clearly defined morality. Might have trouble as the the more complex blood elf.
  • Another iconic elven character might be career suicide.
  • Nobody wants a theater full of vapid, gasping teenagers.
  • Shows no emotions; good for Legolas, bad for Kael'Thas

Christian Bale

Why?
  • The appearance is about right, and given his weight-changing ability he's shown in the past ( in The Machinist ), he could probably pull it off.
  • The part would require someone that can play a part of elegance and sinistry. Both of these facets have been portrayed by this actor very well in previous films he has starred in.
Why not?
  • May not have the forceful presence of a leader exhibited by Kael.

Takeshi Kaneshiro

Why?
  • Have the builds of Kael'thas.
  • Greatly resembles Kael'thas.

  • Looks like him...kind of.
Why not?
  • Might have had his share of elves and orcs.
  • Too Typecast

Lady Katrana Prestor/Onyxia (voice)

Catharine Zeta-Jones

Why?
  • People, just imagine Velma from CHICAGO saying this: Oh, my flight is pure evil...and we LOVE it.
  • Zeta-Jones has displayed the sort of humor required for Deathwing's daughter.
  • Already has experience with voice acting.
  • Would look good as Human Form Prestor.
Why Not?
  • Warcraft might not be the sort of thing she's looking for.

Kel'Thuzad

Christopher Lee

Why?
  • Has shown he can also do wizards.
  • Can catch the persuasive, the charismatic and the very dark side of a powerful wizard as Kel'Thuzad, as well as portraying his inherently good human nature.
  • Voice fits Kel'Thuzad in life as in death.
  • Resembles Kel'Thuzad.
Why not?
  • Might have had enough of wizards.
  • Kel'Thuzad's voice is dead and rasping, while Mr. Lee's voice (despite his age) is strong and commanding ( though it could be put through a synthesizer ).

Bernard Hill

Why?
  • Did a great job as a king in LotR.
  • With makeup, he resembles Kel´Thuzad much.
  • Resembles Kel´thuzad.

Kil'jaeden the Deceiver

Bill Nighy

  • Really good actor, won Golden Globe and 11 another award.
  • Fantasy exprience.
  • Evil guy.
Why Not?
  • Maybe too busy?

Lawrence Makoare

Why?
  • Has experience portraying evil characters under heavy makeup.

James Earl Jones

Why?
  • Has voice-acted with unbelievable effects, such as Darth Vader.

King Llane Wrynn

Malfurion Stormrage

Brad Pitt

Why?
  • Pitt has demonstrated the ability to do action-heavy roles in the past, and Malfurion regularly leaps, races, and rides on dragons.
  • Pitt's role in Troy indicates he's not adverse to acting in a film that could be classed as fantasy.
  • Partner Angelina Jolie nominated by certain WoWWikians to play Tyrande.
Why not?
  • Pitt is very likely to put his humanitarian work and family life before acting for a while.
  • While he could work great as a warrior, he might not be the best for the druidic side of Furion.

Viggo Mortensen

Why?

  • Enjoyed talking elvish in Lord of the Rings.

  • Might have had his share of elves and orcs.
  • Voice not right for the role.

Malygos the Spell-Weaver (voice)

Sir Sean Connery

Why?
  • Can convey the sense of humor Malygos had prior to Neltharion's betrayal.
  • Already has draconic experience from Dragonheart.
Why not?
  • It's likely that one dragon was enough for Connery.
  • He has sworn that he will not be acting in any movies anymore. (Act yes, but no one is asking him to act - just to speak... )

Medivh

Sir Ian McKellen

Why?
  • Has already shown that he can portray wizards with excellency.
  • Can play both good and evil characters ( Medivh switches sides ).
  • Correct age for Medivh if set in recent WoW history.
Why not?
  • With such a high-profile wizard under his belt, it's probable that another one is not needed.

Clint Eastwood

Why?
  • The lead characters in his movies are often outsiders with a dark past they prefer not to remember.
  • Has the skill, charisma and even possibly the appearance to skilfully pull off Medivh.
Why not?
  • Eastwood has never yet participated in a fantasy movie.
  • He can't use a .44 magnum as a wand...

Alan Rickman

Why?
  • Well-established actor with a broad and distinguished list of films under his belt.
  • Is best known for playing complex and interesting villians. See the Harry Potter films and Die Hard for examples.
  • Has an engaging and distinct voice. Perfect for Medivh.
  • Is no stranger to fantasy films and action movies.
Why not?
  • Might be too young or too old physically for Medivh, depending on what timeline the movie is set in.
  • Might be tired of the fantasy genre. He does have his plate full playing Severus Snape in the Harry Potter films.

Marcel Iures

Why?
  • With makeup can look like Medivh
  • Have portraited good and evil roles.
  • Would like a mage role under his belt.
Why not?

  • He could do a voice that is famous thoughout time like Nozdormu.

Keith Richards

Why?
  • He is the oldest man in existence, so it fits.
  • Why not?

Orgrim Doomhammer

Ramstein the Gorger

Matthew G. Taylor

Why?
  • The Nemesis makeup he wore in Resident Evil: Apocalypse was created especially for him by making a cast of his entire body and then molding a body suit from that, therefore, no other actor could fill the suit, and he can do it again!

Ron Perlman (voice)

Why?
  • Good actor
  • Usually bad guy, and has given voice to many monstrous characters.

High Overlord Saurfang

Chuck Norris

Why?
  • Both are internet phenomena of being awesome, invincible, badasses.
  • Both physically fit.
  • Resembles Saurfang...in many ways.
Why not?
  • The movie might not be able to be heard over Chuck Norris jokes.
  • The film might also be completely overwhelmed by the sheer power of Chuck Norris' beard.

Shandris Feathermoon

Natasha Henstridge

  • Kind of resembles her ( long hair ect ).
  • Pretty.
  • Has the personality needed for that role.

Keira Knightley

  • Might not do well as undead.
  • Doesnt resemble her.

Angelina Jolie

Why?

  • Probably wouldn't mind being dipped in a vat of dye.
  • Playing unstable females just comes naturally to her.
Why not?
  • Might have to gain some weight.
  • I'd rather not have my respect for Sylvanas tarnished.

King Terenas Menethil II

Ian McDiarmid

Why?
  • McDiarmid has excelled at playing rulers and politicians ( both good and evil ) in the past.
  • Can capture the king's benevolence ( towards his people ) and arrogance ( towards Medivh ).
  • Looks kind of like Terenas.
Why not?
  • American audiences may forget themselves and think that he's the villain ( we'll always remember him as Emperor Palpatine ).

  • Neeson has a good voice for demanding respect and for leadership.
  • Neeson looks good with a beard.
  • He already has played characters that are wise and benevolent ( Aslan & Qui-Gon Jinn ).
  • Has that "fatherly appearance" which could be a prominient factor in the role.
  • Has similar facial and emotional features.
  • Has loads of experience with dying on screen
Why not?
  • Liam Neeson isn't old enough, but hair dye could help.

Thrall, son of Durotan (and/or other orcs/Rexxar)

Chris Metzen

Why?
  • Metzen already provides the voice of Thrall. Edit: No he doesn't. Clancy Brown of Highlander, Shawshank Redemption, Carnivale, Spongebob Squarepants, etc voices Thrall.
  • Who better than one of the character's developers?
Why not?
  • Studio executives might not like it.
  • Hes writing the script.
  • Does not look like him, at all.

Keith Hamilton Cobb

Why?
  • Perfect build for the role.
  • Good at being both intimidating and cheerful.

  • Another "badass" role might not be what he's looking for.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson

  • Has already done a fantasy type movie.
Why not?
  • Might not want to do the same sort of role twice.
  • Accent is all wrong.
  • Is more of a villain type actor.

Mr. T

Why?
  • Already under contract by Blizzard for WoW advertising
  • Resembles Thrall almost perfectly.
Why not?
  • Its frekin Mr T? For the horde...fool!

Tichondrius the Darkener

Christopher Lee

Why?
  • Tichondrius, moreso than other demons such as Archimonde and Kil'jaeden, is dark and shadowy, and must have an actor with the voice to match. This is exactly the sort of thing that Christopher Lee was made famous for.
Why not?
  • Perhaps another demon would be more suitable?
  • Voice doesn't fit.

Thomas Kretschmann

Why?
  • Voice fits (he even won Audience Award!)
  • Fantasy exprience

  • Has portrayed an archer in King Arthur.
Why Not?
  • Doesnt resemble her.
  • Shes not very tough.

Cate Blanchett

Why?
  • Vastly enjoyed playing Galadriel in LotR. She bronzed her elf-ear prosthetics after filming. She may be open to playing an elf with even longer ears.
  • Australian accent could give the Night Elves a new spin
  • Can capture the emotions exhibited by Tyrande.
Why not?
  • As much as she enjoyed playing an elf, she may decide that once is enough.
  • Her personality is too calm. Tyrande is a fiery warrior.

Angelina Jolie

Why?
  • Her performance in Tomb Raider established that she enjoys action roles, and could easily try shooting arrows from the back of a tiger.
  • She has demonstrated acute acting ability, perfect for Tyrande's range of emotion.
  • Can perform in a flawless neutral English accent, which the producers may insist upon for all elven characters.
Why not?
  • Jolie has put her acting on hold for her humanitarian work before, and Warcraft may not be what she is looking for.
  • As the mother of three young children, it's more than likely that she'll put family before work.

Laura Bertram

Why?
  • Experience with makeup.
Why not?
  • Had to take days off on some episodes of Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda due to makeup taking a long time to apply.
  • Voice is too "sweet".

Liv Tyler

Why?
  • Has portrayed an elf and was good in the role.
  • The voice she used as Arwen would be perfect for Tyrande.
Why not?
  • Might not want to play another elf.
  • Might not be as good in the action-packed role of Tyrande.
  • Does not, in any way, resemble an elf. The only claim to elvendom is her previous role, which was lamented by many LotR fans.

Turalyon

Sean Bean

Why?
  • Has a matching features.

Why Not?

  • Too old.

Sir Uther the Lightbringer

  • His voice would work perfectly.
  • Could capture Uther's range of emotion quite well.
Why not?
  • He's done his share of fantasy/sci-fi in the past, with varying degrees of success, and might want more of a challenge than what Warcraft offers, as the film already has a set fan base.
  • He already turned down a part in the next Indiana Jones movie because he's enjoying retirement too much. Highly unlikely to come out of retirement for an entirely new franchise.

Liam Neeson

Why?
  • He does resemble Uther's portrait in Reign of Chaos.
  • Has played mentors in the past. In many of his mentor films, he is murdered.
  • Has the urgency and integrity Uther had.
Why not?

Will Ferrel

Why?
  • He does bear a certain resemblance to Uther's portrait in Reign of Chaos.
  • Has the urgency and sheer comedy factor that Uther brings to all Warcraft stories.
Why not?
  • El diablo...Spanish for "A fighting Chicken"
  • Would need to lose some weight and do some very extensive body building in order to portray the battle-hardened veteran convincingly (Uther gets some action, and that involves swinging a very heavy hammer around).
  • Will Ferrel is FAR too comedic for the Serious Uther.

Ysera the Dreamer (voice)

Micheal Jackson

He has the wacko voice and ........ the moonwalk

Zalazane

Wesley Snipes

Why?
  • Really good actor, many awards.
  • Can fight, and has fighting exprience.
  • Best villain award (and Zalazane is one!)
  • Fantasy exprience.
  • Slim like most trolls.
Why not?
  • He is currently "in the slammer".

Zul'jin

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Why?
  • Features a remarkable accent, in some ways similar to the troll accent.
Why Not?
  • Troll accent is supposed to resemble the stereotypical Jamaican accent, not the Austrian one.
  • Might not be interested in acting anymore.
  • Way too broadchested for a troll...

Djimon Hounsou

Why?
  • Great actor.
  • Accent is perfect for any troll.
  • We saw him as a fighter in Gladiator.
  • Has been in a few fantasy films.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson

Why?
  • He could wrestle the elves.
  • He's good at acting out the role of a leader.
  • Being a professional wrestler, he can probably do his own stunts.
Why Not?
  • He may not like being cast as a troll.
  • He may not like the heavy make up.
  • May not act well around Shamans.
  • A little too beefy to be a troll, they tend to be kind of skinny...

Wesley Snipes

Why?
  • Really good actor, many awards.
  • Can fight, and has fighting exprience.
  • Best villain award (and Zuljin is one!)
  • Fantasy exprience.
  • Slim like most trolls.
Why not?
  • He is currently "in the slammer".

Every Single Character in the World of Warcraft Universe

Every Single Actor or Actress From Pirates of the Caribbean, Lord of the Rings, or Harry Potter

Why?
  • They have experience with the genre, and it's easy to imagine them in the exact same wardrobe and makeup as we've seen them before
Why Not?
  • Might be tired of being suggested for the exact same role by you uncreative twits
