Replace the Actors Game...

Bored and am always interested/toying with the casting aspect of movies, I decided to throw this idea for a game out to see how others think of casting...

What If the actors in some of the most popular movies (or not,pick any movie you desire), were not available for the film?Not interested in the project? Who would you pick as their replacements? It isn't a stubborn reply of "ugh nobody could replace him or her in that role". Its a game and mindless fun, and you're supposed to be faced with the "fact" that the certain actor could/would NOT be involved....

Game is pretty simple - Each poster answers the following posters Film title and picks their replacements.

EDIT Try and be realistic with the timeframes (I.E. : Ashton Kutcher couldn't play the role of a mid-late 30 year old back in 1985)

So i'll start things off with...

Lethal Weapon

The next schmoe to reply should pick whom would portray the main characters of the film, Murtagh & Riggs, if Gibson/Glover could not be casted.

If you wish to go on further, you can also have fun with re-casting the later main characters such as Rene Russo,Joe Pesci etc.,

Enjoy hopefully.

Hmmm...this will confuse the game up a bit but i'd personally like to see your responses to Back To The Future & Nightmare On Elm Street with the year-fixtures (aka cast people from the 80s era who could play McFly,Freddy etc in that actual year,but thats just my curiousity)....

I'll do Entourage...a really tough one to pick for me besides Vinny since I can't stand Grenier.

Marc Blucas as Vinny Chase
Breckin Meyer as E
