Ideas anyone? Dream teams?

My ideas:

Henry Gloval- Fatherly type, warm but serious Hiroyuki Sanada (Sunshine), Jim Broadbent (Moulin Rouge), Peter Stormare (Big Lebowski)

Lisa Hayes- Super serious with vulnerability Eva Green (Casino Royale), Evan Rachel Wood (Upside of Anger), Rose Byrne (Troy)

Lynn Minmei- Naive, stubborn, and talented  Melissa Reyes (The Search for the Next Doll)

Maximillian Sterling- <Badass yet dorky Sung Kang (Tokyo Drift), Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes)

Rick Hunter- Young, wide-eyed, but confident Aaron Yoo (Disturbia), Nicholas Tse (Time and Tide), Leonardo Nam (Perfect Score), Daniel Radcliffe!?

Roy Fokker- Cocky and charming Chris Evans (Sunshine)

Claudia Grant- Calm and smooth Zoe Saldana (The Terminal), Gabrielle Union (Bad Boys II)

Khyron- Shady as all hellCillian Murphy (Sunshine)

Gonna go with the picks I listed earlier, along with some new additions:

Lisa Hayes - Jenna Fischer (The Office)

Claudia Grant - Rashida Jones (The Office) or Halle Berry (Catwoman… c’mon, most of y’all know who she is!)

Rick Hunter - Jensen Ackles or Jared Padelecki (Supernatural)

Lynn Minmei - Eriko Tamura (Heroes) or Hikari Utada (J-pop idol)

Roy Fokker - I can see Matthew McConaghey (A Time to Kill, Sahara) or Paul Walker (The Fast and the Furious) in this role

Max Sterling - Good call on Milo Ventimiglia!

Capt. Gloval - Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Supernatural, the upcoming Watchmen movie)

Ben Dixon - Ron Livingston (Office Space, Band of Brothers)

Breetai - Kane Hodder (Jason Goes to Hell) or Tyler Mane (X-Men, Troy)

Khyron - Cillian Murphy’s a good idea, but I can also see Christian Bale (American Psycho, Batman Begins) in the part.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan is a great Gloval!

I am not sure how casting would go for Rick Hunter… Maybe I am hater, but I don’t want to see some teen heart throb WB actor in that role. I feel casting an Asian American in the lead would be revolutionary (or just plain ballsy).

Minmei shouldn’t be all “chinadoll” orientalist. I’d be damned to see another white boy love (and leave) an Asian sister on the big screen. There are so many upcoming pop stars that would be good for that role.

Robotech celebrated a diverse cast for an animation made so long ago. It would be so cool to have the film reflect that in this day and age. Same as Star Trek did back in the 60s.

I always thought Jewel Staite really fit the look for Lisa Hayse, but I haven’t seen her act in a while, she might be terrible.

Capt. Gloval - Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Supernatural, the upcoming Watchmen movie)

Awww, come on, they have to look and feel like the character their portraying…

Best Gloval person in current industry is Stellan Skarsgard, plus having such a world famous, prolific actor as the head of the Ship will defiantly get the fans in.

I really don’t like any of these choices.

I rather like some of Ign’s picks, especially Nathan Fillion as Roy.  He’s damn near perfect, and he’s played a similar character previously so stepping into the role should be second nature to him.

I like the choices whitecygnus.com/Macross-cc made for the robotech movie except for one.  Holly Marie Combs while I admit would be perfect for Lisa if she was younger would be just fine.  But she has gotten a little bit older and I’m not sure if she would be right for the part now.  Maybe someone like Elisha Cutberth or Jessica Alba.  Some one like that maybe.  But thats just what I think.

Which Voice actor from the series would you have announce the Series and Would you have the Voice Crew from the Animated Series also protray the UN counsils Military Generals?  That way they have a Cameo in the Movie?  Maybe Dan Woran as Admril Hayse?  and so on.

I do like some of the casting idea’s, Nathon as Roy, Clive Owen as Breetai.  Even Seth Rogen as Dixon, lol

But some of the other choices.  Keira Knightly as Lisa Hayes?  Way tooo young.

IGN had Clint Eastwood as Gloval.  Also they made the mistake of claiming Gloval as Italian, not of Ukrainian background.  Need either a Russian or a person who can do great Russian accents.

I know he’s getting much older these days but a good Khyron would be Robert Carlyle!  lol

What about the loveable Zentraedi trio? I’d pick Vince Vaugn for Bron, Rob Schneider for Rico and Luke Wilson for Konda

I completely forgot about those three.  Those are great choices for those three but what about someone such as Jeff Foxworthy Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable guy.  I’m not trying to be sarcastic I just think if you want commidy why not go with those three.  They are great you have to admit that. :rofl:  ^_^

Maybe Dan Woran as Admril Hayse? and so on.

Actually.. for those of us who have interacted with Dan, especially during after-con parties..

Dan acts, talks and looks the part for a real life Roy! Amazing if such a thing happened, but alas, this is Hollywood, so you’ll find some out of state actor to play him, like Nathan Lane, eish!

is that http://www.whitecygnus.com/Macross-cc.htm has the best potential cast yet…except that I agree with Vermillion 7 that Rose Byrne would make a good Lisa Hayes.  And of course, Jeri Ryan is the best match for Miriya, I don’t think that she’d be to “big” for the role either.
