Christopher Kennedy Masterson was such the best choice for Guybrush ever. He might still be able to do it now, who knows.

LeChuck needs to be a blokey piratey bloke. A little short, a bit heavy, the kind of guy you wouldn't want to mess with. Kind of like Ray Winstone, but not him. Bob Hoskins but nastier. Harvey Keitel but less intense. Someone like Robert Shaw in Jaws.

That guy from Thank You For Smoking could be Stan.

But what the hell am I doing commenting on this post again :~

I reckon the Guybrush role should go to this guy.

HA!

All these people you talk of will be dead by the time you become a famous film maker. No offense or anything.

Because nobody under the age of 40 has every directed a film. And we're all 10.

I could be wrong, but scabb was probably being sarcastic.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Scabb was being metaphorical. At heart, we are all ten year old fans of the old LucasArts adventure games, with the child-like innocence and enthusiasm, but being a filmmaker requires life experiences, maturity, and a buttload of responsibility. So in order for us to succeed in the picture business, we'd have to "grow up."

(Yeah, I'm pretty sure he was being sarcastic.)

He'd have to be being sarcastic, I've never known scabb to be that insightful.

That guy looks somewhat like Jason Lee... although I would want Lee to play Otis. And Zach Braff still is THE ultimate Guybrush.

And I still vote for Robin Williams as Stan... I don't care the age. But the fast-talking sales-man... Williams could really pull that of FANTASTICALLY!

Just saw this thread... had to respond:

Zach Braff - Guybrush
Rachel Weisz - Elaine
Jack Nicholson - LeChuck

...more about character here than looks but that would be a pretty good cast.

A good comedic actor who is just coming into the right age range to play Guybrush:

Michael Cera (aka George Michael from Arrested Development.)

George Michael has the voice, but out of the Arrested Development cast I think G.O.B. would be a better fit.

Actually, Cera doing something more akin to this -- http://youtube.com/watch?v=nAV0sxwx9rY -- than George Michael would have been pretty sweet.

Wow. That is quite awesome.

I think, whatever else we might think about a Monkey Island movie, we can all agree that Uwe Boll should NOT be allowed to direct it. In fact, I wonder if it would be possible to get a pre-emptive restraining order that would prevent him from even considering a Monkey Island movie.

Having seen Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World lends further credence to my opinion that Michael Cera would make an awesome Guybrush Threepwood. And I'm surprised it didn't occur to me before, but I think Edgar Wright would be a good choice for director of a theoretical Monkey Island movie.

Maybe not, but what about Nick Frost as Winslowe in the Tales Of Monkey Island Movie? And come to think about it, Simon Pegg could be an interesting choice for Largo LeGrand.

I disagree with these new posts. Although I've warmed up to Cera playing the role

I've been thinking of Neil Patrick Harris as Guybrush. He can sing, is geek-friendly, sounds a lot like Dominic Armato, and looks eternally pre-20s.

A friend and I were toying with the idea of a Monkey Island movie. We've conducted a list of actors, though it's highly unrealistic to get them all:
Guybrush threepwood: Zach Braff
Le'chuck: Martin Sheen/William Shatner
Bob, Le'chuck's second in command: Kevin Spacy.
Dead voodoo head: Robin Williams.
Voodoo Lady: Woopi Goldberg.
Sword Master Carla: Halee Berry.
Elaine Marley: Angelina Julie.
Herman Toothrot: John Lithgow.
Otis: Alan Rickman.
Stan: Gilbert Gottfried.
Meathook: Michael Clarke Duncan.

That's as far as we got.

I'd like to add an addendum to my previous casting choices: Karen Gillan (Doctor Who's Amy Pond) as Elaine. She can act, she has a good sense of comedy, and as we've seen in the pirate episode of Doctor Who, she looks good in pirate gear.
