So this made the rounds and ended up on my news alert. So why not do a quick fire round of casting thoughts on these performers in these roles. This very off impromtu. Read the article here
Andy Serkis as Quasimodo – Unless it was motion capture I don’t see this casting. Serkis is a great actor but I can’t see him being a innocent child-like Quasimodo.
Gal Gadot as Esmeralda – I get it. She could work as Esmerlada but it’s not a casting that I would have thought of. I think there are better opinions but if did happen probably wouldn’t be the worst.
Peter Capaldi as Frollo – I have never heard of this guy, I apologize. Apparently I have see him in The Devil’s Whore, which I don’t remember at all. He has played The Doctor though and he was in the Vicar of Dibley of which I have only watched the last two episode. Well I will say this for this casting HE LOOKS the part so shrugs of this casting. Probably wouldn’t be a bad choice.
Chris Hemsworth as Phoebus – Did an actual post on this one back in 2012 so read it here. I guess this a popular casting pick for Phoebus.
Eddie Redmayne as Clopin – No! While I could see him as Gringoire and Disney’s Clopin has elements of Gringoire in his characterization just no to this one.
Kesley Grammar as Victor – I don’t understand this one. I want to but I don’t.
Betty White as Laverne – Don’t put Betty White in a Disney movie. Don’t censor her.
Jack Black as Hugo – Maybe but no. Sure they are both crass but still.
Anthony Hopkins as The Archdeacon – Well he did play Quasimodo in the 1982 movie so having him in another version could be cool but no. Again not the worst casting but meh.
But what do you think of this fantasy casting? And will Disney actually remake Hunchback?Follow thehunchblog
