Okay, we've had threads like this a few times before, and they were always lots of fun.

At any rate, if live action movies were being made of FF games, what actors would you like to see playing what roles?

Bruce Campbell.

In every role.

I'd like Danny Devito to dress up as a cactuar.
Also Will Smith - Rajin

I found Japanese actors who would be perfect for FFX.

Tidus "takky" ( a popular japanese celebrity who is in the FFX TV commercials )

Yuna Kyouko Nagasegawa (not sure about last name)

(not the best pic, but I have seen a poster where she looks just like Yuna)

No one person comes to mind but there are plenty of people who would be perfect for Lulu.

Auron could be done by Beat Takeshi or

I found a perfect Lulu! Shibazaki Kou! Photo below:

Note: the actress for Yuna is Hasegawa Kyouko, not Nagasegawa kyouko as I said earlier. my bad-


Here is a Wakka:

Aaaaand Auron is Ken Watanabe: Link here:

By the way I will clarify, Tidus should be played by Takizawa Hideaki:

An idea for Kimahri: Bob Sapp!? Just kidding. lol.

as for Rikku, I'm sure there are plenty of hyperactive teenage girls who would fit. as for Seymour, I am not so sure....


I apologize for the messy state of my post. Good luck navigating it! I think, however, you will find the cast to be a perfect fit!

What do you think?

Cid from FFVII - Dennis Leary

Cid from FFIV - John Rhys Davies

General Leo from FFVI - Bruce Willis

Vincent from FFVII - Stuart Townsend

Kain from FFIV - Jason Stathom (though he is missing the blonde hair)

Strago from FFVI - Anthony Hopkins

that's all I can think of for now.

Shibasaki Kou would make an awesome Lulu. She's so pretty.

I've got insomnia right now, and I'm bored, so I suppose I'll do some casting.

Final Fantasy IV

Cecil: Maybe Joaquin Phoenix ([Only registered and activated users can see links]) ? He doesn't seem the perfect fit, but he's one of the few people I can imagine as a Paladin and as a Dark Knight.
Rosa: Kate Bosworth ([Only registered and activated users can see links])


Final Fantasy VI
Terra: Alexis Bledel ([Only registered and activated users can see links])
Celes: Jeri Ryan ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

That's all that comes to mind at the moment, I'll try and think up more.

Durendal
08-11-2004, 04:36 PM
Wow, that Alexis Bledel is pretty freaky lookin', which would make for a good Terra.

Cyan from FFVI - Adrain Paul, better known as The Highlander, at least he already knows how to use a katana

Best casting I could think of would be Micheal Duncan Clarke (Or Micheal Clarke Duncan, been so long since I've seen his name anywhere I forgot which order it went in) as Barret from FF 7.

The guy that played Kingpin in the Daredevil movie, for those who don't know who he is.

Anyone that thinks anyone else could play that role better would be quite silly. I mean, he's got the build for it, and a voice to match what I figured Barret would sound like--unless you want him to have an ironically high-pitched voice or something.

He also played in The Green Mile, a move I absolutely love. But indeed he'd make a good Barret.

I know he was in that, too. I just figured more people around here would be apt to recognize the Daredevil role than The Green Mile.

He also did some voice work in the Planet of the Apes remake they did a while back.

I am surprised no one has done the Tidus - Meg Ryan comment yet...


Naphtali, I like your choice for Wakka. But Ken Watanabe's head has the wrong shape for Auron, I think...

Auron always struck me as someone that could be well played by that guy from Mystic River... Sean something. Anyway, he looks the part of the old guy, and he's known for the monotone in his acting voice.

As for Tidus... we could just leave him out entirely. I mean, he was a character that didn't technically exist in the world anyway.

The guy who played Silent Bob would be great for Ward in FF8, also. :D

I always say that Michael Clarke Duncan should play Barrett too.

Someone always pops up and says "NOOOO! Only MR. T can play Barrett".

Without fail.

C'mon Mr. T people. I'm waiting.

How about different shriners playing the roles of Final Fantasy characters?

Udo - Moogle

Micheal Clarke Duncan would kick Mr. T's ass, hands down.

Wow! Those are good people! Hmm, am I the only one that thinks the guy that could play Tidus is cute? I couldn't see the LuLu pic unfortunately. I think the girl who could play Yuna isn't pretty enough (not that she isn't pretty, but I think Yuna is just really cute ^_^). I'll look around for people that could work--including American actors.

I'm glad you liked the choices, but was suprised that the Lulu link didn't work. Shibasaki Kou for Lulu was by far the best fit! Anyhow, I've included an image and a link:

I can send anyone the definitive list and photos for all playable characters in FFX as japanese actors by e-mail if you let me know.

Oh, by the way:

Naphtali = ziggypop

sorry for the confusion.

I completely agree that Meg Ryan should play Tidus. The right look, the right voice, everything seems right.

They might have some trouble with the semi bare chested part of Tidus' costume, but I'm sure they can fix that up digitaly.

Hey thanks! It worked, and yeah, you're right!
