King's Quest movie thread!!
« on: April 26, 2004, 09:48:41 PM »
No, don't go thinking there's going to BE a KQ movie. But let's get theoretically and directory - what if there was? Who should get cast as who?

I vote David Boreanaz to play Alexander!! You may know as the man who reinvented dark & broody as Angel in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and then his own series, Angel.  Pictures viewable here: http://www.chosentwo.com/buffy/gallery/angel/angel.php

Also, he's hot. Which is good for us Alex fangrrls!  :lovegoggles:  ;)

So! What other suggestions do people have? :)

I thnk Sean Connery, while awesome, would be a bit too old for Graham. Oo! Harrison Ford! (Okay, so we based some drawings of our Graham off him...but it does work<grin>)

LOL, hmm...Sarah Michelle Gellar does have the blonde look but I don't know if she would fit personality/acting wise in it.

I stand by Nicholas Brendon as Alexander. Hey, he's from the same show. ;P

And I think Harrison Ford would work pretty well as Graham. Or, ironically enough, Robbie Benson.

I'm stumped on Rosella and Valanice too. I haven't seen many movies lately, so I'm way out of the loop on all the "it" actresses nowadays. I liked the actress who played Eowyn in LotR though... perhaps she might be a thought for Rosella?

Ahhh, Orlando Bloom as Alexander  :lovegoggles:

I dunno...I can see Nicole Kidman as a Valenice...not quite sure why tho  :S Or Gwyneth Paltrow

Cary Elwes as Graham...just coz I hav seen him in Robin Hood - Men in tights, and he suits the cap and tights  :suffer:

And why not Kiera Knightly as Rosella...

Hmm how about

Julia Stiles for Rosella?

There was another girl I can think of, but I can't remember her name.  I thought it was Rachel Leigh Cooke but that's someone else.  ;P

EDIT: Hahaha, I didn't even notice Kimmie thought the same too.  ;D

Didn't Cary Elwes also play Westley in The Princess Bride? I agree, he's too young to play Graham, though.

What about Sam Neill? Not really your typical action hero actor, but then, Graham wasn't really a "macho" adventurer.

And can we have Gary Oldman as one of the bad guys? Maybe Alhazred? ;D

peace & Luv, Liz

You can't do that.... Brendan Fraser will be too busy playing Roger Wilco in the Space Quest movies. ;)

How about this:
Graham: Snoop Dog
Alexander: Vanilla Ice
Valanice: Beyonce
Rosella: Sir-Mix-a-Lot

Special bonus casting:
Alhazred: M C Hammer
 ;P
She's back. She's proud. She will overcome!

NO WAY!! That is so wrong on so many levels ::)

For Connor, you don't need a drama/comedy actor like Fraser. You need some action-hero type, who's also very annoying... Ben Affleck for example :P

Ben Affleck doesnt have the right look for Connor nor the right build :-\, and Brendan Fraser was in the Mummy movies ;D, and in them he was definitely somewhat like Connor ;)

Brendan Frasier (Fraser?) would be a PERFECT Roger Wilco, agreed!!  

Hmm..I dunno, I think we could find a better match for Connor.

Ian McKellen (sp?) for Mannanan -what do you think?
