The Warcraft Movie: MechanoChameleon Cast Picks

The Warcraft movie is a long anticipated project that has yet to become a reality. According to IMDb, the film is set to be released in 2013. Now that may be a long time from now, but speculations have already begun as to who will be playing what. Naturally, we've put together a list of cast members we'd like to see playing some of our favorite characters. Here it is:

Forest Whitaker as Thrall Son of Durotan 

He may be getting old, but so is Thrall! We're positive that Whitaker has what it takes to portray the strength and might that the character of Thrall represents, while maintaining the sense of honor and dedication that the leader of the Horde has been known for in-game.

Other picks for this character:
Vin Diesel, but only if he does his own stunts.

Vincent Cassel as Illidan Stormrage

Why? Cassel's physical appearance, to begin with. His facial features  resemble those of the rebellious Stormrage, and it seems to us that he would do a fine job in expressing the intense hatred and the lust for vengeance that the character of Illidan is ofter tied with. Cassel's serious demeanor certainly qualifies him to play the part of a serious character.

Other picks for this character: 
John Torturru.

Chris O'Donnell as Prince Kael'thas Sunstrider

Why? Well, for starters, the man hasn't been on the big screen for a while, so, why not? We thought it would be pretty nifty to see this guy play an out-of-this world crazy role for a change. Also, we feel that Mr. O'Donnell there has just the right look: half homicidal Nazi maniac, half arcane-crack addict. Perfect, no?

Other picks for this character: 

 Leonardo DiCaprio, because he's so good at playing roles which involve self-destructive elements, downward spirals, and insanity in general.

Rosario Dawson as Tyrande Whisperwind

Why? Dawson would probably be a good marketing choice here; I'm certain that most of the target audience for this project would not mind having to watch the beautiful Ms. Dawson in action. Her exotic look seems reminiscent of that of a Night Elf female. But beyond the eye candy reasoning behind our choice, we think Rosario Dawson is actually a pretty good actress.

Other picks for this character:
Keira Knightley, because she looked damn good painted blue in King Arthur.

Daniel Day-Lewis as Varimathras/Mal'Ganis

Why? Dreadlords. The very simple mention of their title induces images of Daniel's face. How kick-ass would he look in demon make up? The man was clearly meant to play the role of a deranged, power-hungry, blood-sucking, bone-chilling lord of dread. I can totally picture him in glorious purple armor, eyes glowing with the essence of undeath. Ok, let's not get carried away just yet. You get the picture.

 Other picks for this character:
We will settle for nothing less than Mr. Daniel Day-Lewis himself. (or Alan Rickman!)
