My WTF moment of the day...

So this morning whilst perusing the magazine aisle of my local Dominick's, I noticed the latest edition of Anime Insider. I took a look at it, and one article caught my eye. It was the inevitable "If FMA were to ever become a big-budget Hollywood movie, who would be cast?" bullcrap that AI always pulls because they seem to find it amusing. I would never wish such a thing on any anime series. But, just so we're all clear, Fullmetal Alchemist is NOT going to be made into a live-action movie. This is just retarded speculation that the magazine editors put in to be silly.

So here's what they said, and then here's what I say:


Edward Elric: Daniel Radcliffe (Okay, they pulled the Daniel thing when they were talking about who to cast for the Evangelion live-action movie. They must have a thing for him. Even in my worst nightmares I could never imagine that kid playing Edward. BIG FAT NO, NO, NO.)

Alphonse Elric: Macaulay Culkin (or however the hell you spell that loser's name) (They actually said "the voice" of Alphonse. OH MY GOD. WHAT THE FUCK. Again, never in my worst crack-induced nightmares could I ever imagine a voice like that coming from a 14-year-old metal body. NO, NO, NO!)

Roy Mustang: Christian Bale (I'm not sure if I got the name right, but in any case, I've never heard of the guy) (Meh. I don't know how I'd judge this, because I've never even heard of this dude before. If there's anything in his favor, it's that he's cute.)

Winry Rockbell: Amanda Bynes (Amanda as Winry I could MAYBE see. They both have wild personalities, but I don't think Amanda could pull off the angsty/sad side of Winry. I also don't think she'd look very good as a blonde. ._.)

Scar: Vin Diesel (Eeeehhhhhh... this one's hard. I think Vin would make a good Scar, it's just... his voice is so strange, it would make Scar seem less human than he is, and more "Arrr, I have no soul." I don't usually base casting off of voices, but in this case, it's kind of important.)



So yeah, there's my opinion on the incredibly AWFUL job they did in casting. So, who would YOU cast if (God forbid) a live-action FMA movie were ever spawned?
