Here are my Top 5 actors for Alfred. I loved Michael Caine as Alfred and people say "bring Michael Caine back". This a reboot. If you reboot you start fresh.
#5 Ian McKellen.
Known for: X-Men (2000), Lord Of The Rings: Fellowship Of The Rings (2001), and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012).
Reason: He was great Magneto and he'd also make great Alfred.
#4 Malcolm McDowell.
Known for: Clockwork Orange (1971), Superman The Animated Series (1996 - 2000), and Halloween (2007).
Reasons: I think he would nail this role.
#3 Pierce Brosnan.
Known for: Ms.Doubtfire (1993), Goldeneye (1995), and Mars Attacks (1996).
Reasons: A nice James Bond nod. Go ahead hate me. He's my favorite James Bond. If you could believe Alfred was a spy when he was younger.
#2 Christopher Lee.
Known for: Lord Of The Rings: Fellowship Of The Ring (2001), Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers (2002), and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith.
Reasons: If you could believe Alfred was a bad ass in his day.
#1 Terence Stamp.
Known for: Superman II (1980), Bowfinger (1999) and My Boss's Daughter (2001).
Reason: I know he was Zod in Superman II. Chris Evans was Human Torch and Captain America so why not? He's a great/underrated British actor who can be warm/kind and at the same time he can also be a bad ass. I think he would do an amazing job. He was good friends with Michael Caine and I think Caine would be proud.
Let me know what you guys think? Who would like to see play Alfred? And if you disagree please be respectful.
