This is not a deadly serious thread, just fans of the game having some fun imagining a Gears of War cast. So, jump in the casting couch for the Gears of War movie. Who do you think would be good choices for the characters? I have a few picked:
Marcus: Dominic Purcell from Prison Break. He is bulky, tough and could play a scarred hero.




Cole: Michael Clarke Duncan. This guy is probably the only guy big enough. He has a deep voice and could say all of Cole's lines well.




I am away from home and my photoshop so here is my funny as hell mock up I did in paint. Surely someone here could do better.




Who do you think could play the rest? I was thinking Owen Wilson might be ok for Baird. He is a smart alec but might not be tough enough.

Anyway, keep adding (post pictures or links) actors to the cast and maybe we can do a tragic fan-poster. Light hearted suggestions welcome (ie Orlando Bloom as Baird) and remeber, this is not genuine speculation.

Nice Idea, I would love to see both of them get shot in the head. I think Harrison Ford may be good for hoffman.

Cole: Terry Crews

Dominic: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson maybe with some facial hair.

Toby Maguire or Topher Grace can play Carmine. Super powers or no, they're both still pussies.

Carmine should definitely be Sawyer from Lost.



He has the exact same kind of attitude in Lost as Carmine. I'm sure he could pull it off pretty well.

Lol some good ideas here, but whatever happens, Dame Judy Dench should play the Locust Queen!


Under much make-up of course

I took into account that The Rock did a terrible job in Doom. But I think he could maybe do better in gears.


Josh Holloway would be pretty cool for Carmine if you ask me. Good suggestion shane.

No he doesn't!

Sawyer isn't easily impressed, is a badass, and needs to have it his way. Carmine was impressed by Marcus, is a pussy, and is content to listen to Kim.

Sawyer > Carmine

Sawyer would actually be perfect for Baird IMHO.

Sawyer isn't nearly as muscular to be someone like Baird. Carmine is pretty weedy too.

My bad. I actually meant to say Baird. Typo on my part.
He does suit Baird's personality to a tee, and I don't think any of them are going to be the size of their game character counterparts. They're un-realistically huge in the game.

Terry Tate = only Cole. [He does his voice for any of you who don't know.]
