Potential Conan casting ranging from Stargate to Twilight

01.14.2010

No, we're not talking about who's going to play Conan O’Brien in the upcoming film adaptation of LATE NIGHT DISASTER: A STORY OF NETWORK EXECUTIVE ASSCLOWNS, rather this is Conan the Barbarian, and now there appears to be a shortlist as to who might be cast as the sword-swinger himself.

There are three lead contenders at the moment, two are known, and one is a mystery that promises to be an “established actor.” The others are Stargate Atlantis’ Jason Momoa and Kellan Lutz from TWILIGHT. You know, the big one who never says anything. As you can see from the pictures, each has quite a different look than the other, but both have “muscles” in common, as you would expect.

I suppose it depends how faithful you want Conan to look to previous incarnations. I think Momoa clearly has “barbarian” written all over him, and though Kellen is close to the traditional complexion and hair color, I can’t really say the same for him. As for this mysterious third party, I guess we can only speculate at this point, but I’m just crossing my fingers it’s not a professional wrestler.

Start With SG-1's 1st 5 seasons

I don't care one way or another of this story, but on your tidbit instead. The 1st 4-5 seasons are excellent then they sort of well run out of bad guys. Stargate Atlatis is mediocre at best & this new one Universe is only for the die hard Stargate fans as it's pretty damn weak to say the least. SG-1 although it went 10 seasons really should have never went beyond 6 or 7 seasons at the most. Well hope that helps as I've seen every single Stargate episode in the entire series of shows.

Contemplate this on the tree of woe.

Is it wrong that I hope they cast the guy from twilight so that it can be shittier than Conan the Destroyer?

My friends and I still imitate Grace Jones saying, "Grab Him! And Take Him!" Damn that movie was horrible. At least D'Abo was kickin it though.

Such a waste. Contemplate this, on the tree of woe.

Triple H

would be awesome for Conan. Looking at those two dudes, I know that make-up and wardrobe is gonna change everything, but right now I don't see either of them filling Arnie's shoes.

Tidbit: If you're going to try Stargate, stick with SG-1 and start from the beginning. Atlantis was fairly boring, and Universe just hasn't done anything that screams 'wow' as of yet.

Agreed on Universe, it's a show that I feel like I've seen before almost, and can guess everything that happens. Not to mention the ending to the finale was very 'bleh,' it didn't leave me thinking, or wanting to watch more... for some reason I did watch the whole season though.

Extra Tidbit: from beginning of SG-1. Atlantis starts after season 7 of Sg-1, and runs concurrently with SG-1 for 3 seasons.

Looks like Conan?

Conan is from the north, so pale white, and has long, straight black hair, square cut across the front... at least how Howard described him, and like a panther.

Jason Momoa looks NOTHING like how Conan should look, and he's not a very good actor.
I haven't seen Kellan Lutz in anything, but he does have the right look.

No better place to start...

...than the beginning. SG1 has the most to offer out of the franchise. Out of all the sci-fi franchises, though, its only second to Sanctuary and the least addicting. I've just flat-out changed channels in the middle of too many shows to recall. A big bowlful of 'meh.'

Actually I find Sanctuary to be more boring than watching golf. And that's pretty tough to do.
