ETA: 4/7/2011 This thread has been expanded to include not only the casting of an FMA Live Action movie, but the other aspects of making such a movie, too. So casting, as well as real well-known script writers, studios and anything else to do with a Hollywood produced FMA Live Action movie can now be discussed here. happy.gif

So, changing the thread title and description from And Starring As ...Who should play FMA characters? to An FMA Live Action Movie? Your thoughts on casting, script-writers, directors etc ~ Board Staff


Well with Aeon Flux turned into a live action and all, I was wondering, maybe they could do the same thing with Full Metal Alchemist!And I was thinking of who would play what part, and I just couldn't stop thinking, "Brad Pitt could be Havoc,Brad Pitt could be Havoc!"Who do you think would play the parts?




<Editing and adding "should play FMA characters??" to subtitle to more clearly describe the content of the thread. Also, moving the thread from FMA Anime forum to FMA Character Discussion forum. 02/19/07 ~Tombow>

The real problem is who would Ed and Al.

Though Armstrong would be interesting to portray.


I would vote for Sean Connery as King Bradley though.

I was actually going to come in screaming "NO BRAD PITT!!!!", but I guess he does have potential of making a decent Havok... But Wyrd_Raven's right..the real problem IS Ed and Al..because off the top of my head, I really can't think of anyone who can act well enough...and (after seeing those Star Wars prequels), I'm willing to bet that the liklihood of finding teenagers/kids who are capable of pulling off such complex roles is slim to none.

I don't know her name...but that girl who played "Gogo' in Kill Bill 1 would make a pretty cool Lyra, I think. laugh.gif

Ah, Chiaki Kuriyama! ohmy.gif She was great as Gogo! She would do a good Lyra!Dante...Just gotta dress Dante with a schoolgirl uniform since Chiaki only played schoolgirls by now! XD Teh sexyness...

I still think Daniel Day Lewis would make a great King Bradley <o< Hum...Monica Belluci as Lust perhaps? Envy would certainly have to be played by a girl...Ah now that I think about it I would love to see Chiaki as him just to see the result.

I can't see who would make a good Ed (But what is sure is that we need a small actor ~_~)...We would only need a big suit of armor for Al, ne?

'Buffy and Angel had gone out before and Buffy wasn't really comfortable talking to Spike and Angel at the same time, because now Spike and Buffy had been going out for 6 months and Buffy was afraid that Angel might tell Spike that him and Buffy went out, but it turns out that Angel had told Spike that they went out, Spike was heartbroken that Buffy never told him that they went out, so Spike broke up with Buffy to get back at her for not telling him that Angel and Buffy went out.'

I typically vote for unknowns (but good actors) for movies such as these. Often, to me at least, when there is someone really famous in a part I think of them as the famous so-in-so. Although, Angela Jolie might make a good "Lust."

I do agree that it would be difficult to find a teen actor who would act well enough to play Ed or Al.

^^Yes, unknowns would be best in these types of roles (that's what made Lord of the Rings soo great)....I mean, no one wants to go in seeing all of Hollywood in a movie. AND....if Tom Cruise gets cast as Mustang*in our movie*...someone will DIE! mad.gif

Angelina Jolie as Lust? hmmm....I'd concider it....she does have the body to play the part...but I hear the name and all that I think of is Tomb Raider....and then Lust isn't "Lust" anymore...she's AJ in a dress that she prob wore to the Academy awards last year...hehehehe tongue.gif

I can kinda think that Lindsay Lohan could play the part of Whinry *gets shot*

Either that or Hilary Duff (Even though I hate her...)

Oh god no...

Is this where we can call for another unknown? Sorry, but seeing any of those people as Winry (Lindsay or Hillary especially) would just ruin Haragen for me. Plus seeing anyone as Ed would just... sorry but I'd probably keel over sad.gif. Personally and thankfully I doubt very much Haragen would ever be made into a live action movie rolleyes.gif. Though it would be an interesting .... event and would stir up some drama among fans.

But wait... those are also bad things ph34r.gif. It's a unique idea though unsure.gif (now I'm just being repetitive).

Alphonse Elric - Haley Joel Osment
Trisha Elric/Sloth - Cate Blanchette
Greed - Hugo Weaving (It could totally work!)
Armstrong - Patrick Stewart (...Maybe. The voice, anyway)

If They were still in their younger years, I would totally hire Sean Connery and Christopher Lee for Fuhrer King Bradley and Colonel Frank Archer (Respectively).





--------------------
Attention Manga Lust fans:
Lust is dead. Finished. Kaput. Joined the Choir Invisible. Roy Mustang incinerated her repeatedly until her Philosopher's Stone dried up and dissolved into nothingness ("Mu" for you Japanese cultural enthusiasts). And she will remain killed off, written out of the plot. Greed was reincarnated because Father saved his Philosopher's Stone and had a guinea pig on hand. Lust is gone. Stop trying to play God with the plot line and bring her back at every possibly junction.
In the event that Hiromu Arakawa can skillfully maneuver around this narrative plot hole, I will eat my words with a pinch of salt.
