posted by Silverwolfpet on - last edited - Viewed by 5.5K users

Hey guys!

I figured out another fun little thing to do while we wait for the first episode. If there ever will be a Monkey Islandmovie, who would you cast as Guybrush, Elaine, LeChuck, Voodoo Lady, Stan, Murray etc etc. ?
Just write below something like this.
My Cast:
Guybrush - ?
Elaine - ?
LeChuck - ?
Stan - Jim Carrey
Voodoo Lady - Whoopee Goldberg
Murray - Christopher Lloyd :p
and continue the list

  • @doodo! said: Guybrush is pretty young unless you're going off his later years such as EMI and TOMI...

    These people you guys said are too old.

    Err, EMI only takes place like a couple months after CMI. Though in the Tales games, he looks like he's in his 30s. (Which I think he is...)

    As for thread topic, my vote's with "animated". Not so much for the voices, but because I think of Monkey Island as something that *needs* to be animated to be done properly. IMO, the cartoony nature of the series is one of the things that truely distinguishes it away from Pirates of the Caribbean.

  • Guybrush

  • Guybrush: Andrew Garfield
    LeChuck: Anthony Hopkins
    Elaine: Emily Blunt
    Voodoo Lady: Queen Latifa
    Stan: Robert Downey Jr.
    Herman Toothrot: Tom Hanks
    Carla: Halle Berry
    Otis: James Franco
    Meathook: Robert DeNiro
    Wally: Warwick Davis
    Captain Dread: Will Smith
    Largo: Danny DeVito
    Goodsoup: Michael Caine
    Haggis: Mike Myers
    Cutthroat Bill: Bob Hoskins
    Van Helgan: Liam Neeson
    Murray: Denny Delk (just use a CGI skull or puppetry, no physical actor necessary)
    Ozzie Mandrill: Russell Crowe
    Casaba: Christopher Walken
    DeSinge: Sacha Baron Cohen
    Morgan: Anne Hathaway
    DeCava: Christian Bale

    These selections are mostly based on how I can see them pulling off the roles, not necessarily voice or appearance.

  • Murray: Denny Delk (just use a CGI skull or puppetry, no physical actor necessary)

    Seems like a job for Andy Serkis ^^


    Cutthroat Bill: Bob Hoskins

    Definately

    Stan: Ted Danson

    Van Helgan: Johnny Depp

    LeChuck: Ian Mc Shane

  • I don't think an live action Monkey Island movie would be that good but an animated one would be great.

    Kevin Convoy (AKA Batman in Animated series,Animated movies, and Batman games) as Lechuck would be good. He has a low voice which Lechuck would have.

  • Guys... I hope I dont mess up too much in this old topic, but saw people typing David Spade for Guybrush and I just had to say that this is the best pick ever.
    I mean... look

    Gabriel Mann would be pretty cool too, but for older Guybrush

    And I dont think anyone has typed Harvey Keitel for Edward van Helgen
    Harvey+Keitel+i+Holy+Smoke

  • I would definitely cast Martin Short as Guybrush Threepwood mighty pirate! He looks just like the comic book version of him in Monkey Island 3 (same nose and everything!) and he's about the right age for this last Monkey island game ;-)
