So I have had a few days off of work and decided. "Hey you're single, bored, and itchy but let's play [Mass Effect](movie:589200)!" So like the little Alice I am I dived into the world of Mass Effect once again for the millionth time. I know what you are saying. "Get a life Nerd!" But no I refuse to, so it was off to gamestop where I bought the trilogy and flirted with the cute cashier who talked me into pre ordering a game I never heard of before I manage to finally hear the sweet indoctrination esque tune of the Mass Effect start screen. And let me tell you I was going in, surround sound blaring me staring into the screen unblinking Ashley being well racist. But other than that I was in the moment like it was my first time playing the game. I would imagine the feeling would be how a father feels seeing his son hitting a home run for the first time! And yes when I ultimately had to let one of my teammates die I teared up and had to pause the game. "Sorry Ash." But it was moments like this that drew the heart, mind and soul into Mass Effect. Until you start thinking hey this would make a Kick A double S movie. It would have to be a well written driving story Bioware has done the heavy work creating the massive universe but also creating characters who became part of our lives. In the movie you need beautiful scenes, great acting, a reality jerking story, and of coarse AWESOME CGI. But I know we are so far from this happening so I went online you know that dark scary places that senators can't keep their no no parts off of, and I read many Mass Effect fan Fictions. Oh and quick question "Why so many sexual fan fic's?" And in the end I wanted to have a casting call of my Mass Effect cast. Wish me luck. (Special thanks to Jessica Chen and Jonathan Cody Morgan.)
Let us Start with Commander Shepard-
For the win! No but really he has really become my favorite actor since I started watching Hell on Wheels. He can play the funny gruff guy but also the tortured hero with the world on his shoulders. And for Pete's sake His name is Anson Mount! Sounds like an wild stallion saving an princess.
Jackie boy as Kaidan Alenko.
Now I needed someone who could be that friend who has a darker side. And after watching him on Boardwalk empire Jack can so pull it off. See Kaiden like Jack were subjects for biotic ability and both were left with mental side effects. Kaiden's headaches and as a kid he did somethings that would scar any kid. He is a lover a fighter the voice to your renegade. And Jack has the talent to pull this off.
Those eyes! Liara
Did I mention the eyes? No really the eyes are a huge part of Liara she plays through those or I should say speak through them. Whenever she opens herself on screen she does it through her eyes and it's magical... I totally was just talking about Liara and Alexandra just now, see how alike they are. Plus Liara needs to be a bit young to match the Asari beauty.
Pew Pew Garrus.
"Pew Pew by the way is my sniper sounds." But really every hero needs a Co hero too Awesome to be a side kick this is where Alexander Skarsgård comes in. Look at that face I so would be his best friend. And thats what he is Shepards best friend the tall sniper with a heart. Alex has the charm and the natural wit to pull off one liners to Shepherds speeches. Side not I will be sitting here waiting on the restraining orders.
Sigh "Why you not my wife!"
My sadness aside she would be great as the all "american girl" and I use that as a term you see Ashley is very pro Human due to her family history she has become a harden shell. I love Olivia but she plays a girl in a shell well "Cough Tron cough." But being a great actress when the lovin starts budding between her and Shepard and you find out her softer side Olivia can portray that very well... plus she's beautiful so theres that.
If you dont know her then you literally have been off the face of the earth since for a few decades. But this is Tara Strong and she has the pleasure of voicing almost everyone on cartoons. From Timmy Turner to Raven from the titans. But it doesn't stop there she has many more look at her Imdb. She would be a beautiful Tali. I started this search strictly for voice actresses then my wonderful ex said. "Dude you know Tara Strong acts also." Mind equal blown I founds some clips and shes a great actress and she has the range to play the Tali the Smart but naive girl. Plus she's hot I know thats not really a point just wanted to state it.
When I say his name I hear thunder. But Just listen to his voice and tell me he couldn't kill the role of Wrex! Plus not only does he act but he plays the monster very well from Underworld to I Frankenstein put him in nice toadlike body suit and tada we have Wrex. Also he is a great actor and a writer a good writer I follow his work and it's incredible one of my role models.
Really this is just self explanatory. NEXT!
I wanted someone with a deep superior voice but then I though hey I want someone who can make Saren come alive someone who can play the bad guy like no one else but when the time come make us relate to the things he have done to make us tear up when his conclusion comes. Because like Shepard, Saren is apart of us all.
I played the game and instantly became intrigued with Matriarch Benezia But was so sadden when I realized it was so brief. And Her connection with Liara is a big part of the story so we need someone to bring alive the story of how this powerful kind woman became a servant to Saren. Meryl Streep is just that woman you can throw a couple of random names, personalities, and lines into a hat and she can take a handful of them and win an oscar. We need her to bring the Love, Life, and betrayal of Matriarch Benezia to the screen.
Joker!!! I so just sung his name in soprano.
Man are you kidding me it was like the writers pulled Seth into a room and said "Be you." And he did each line each face palm was so seth green it was funny three hours later. But then like the rest of the crew he has a darker side. His medical condition really impacts his life but he has proved himself time and time again that no pilot (AI) is better than him. And Seth can play the joker with humor that conceals his pain.
Ok So maybe like me you guys played with female shepard I so did her name was Sophie Shepard. But here is my choice for female Charlize She is a powerful actress and she loves action scenes but she also has the power to pull you into the movie she can give the speech. Punch a geth and look gorgeous all while doing it. Look at that stare and tell me she isn't making you wonder. "Whats is she thinking about?" But Hey Im just a Nerd what do I know?
