Fallout 4 is finally here. I repeat, Fallout 4 is finally here! I don't think I've ever been so excited about a video game release before, and that's saying something. A large part of this excitement is due to the fact that I loved Fallout 3 so much. I put weeks and weeks of my high school life into that game. The only thought I've had more over the last eight years than "When is the next one coming???" is "Why isn't this a movie yet???" What I would give for Fallout to be a movie, or even a tv show. Since I'm not in a place to actually do anything about it, I thought casting the film(or show) would be a great start!
James - Liam Neeson
This has always been the most logical choice for the role, given that Neeson voiced the loving father in the game itself. While he's a bit older than James should be, that can be adjusted. Plus, Neeson is all about taking roles below his age range should allow.
The Lone Wanderer - Stephen Amell
Yes, I would love the Green Arrow to star in Fallout. He's proven he can handle all kinds of action, and work with an ever growing supporting cast. The biggest problem is that, just like Neeson, Amell is a little bit older than the Wanderer is actually supposed to be. But, being as how the Wanderer is whoever we want him/her to be, anything's possible. Like father, like son, right?
Lucas Simms - Lennie James
If you haven't been watching The Walking Dead this season, one thing has been made abundantly clear; Lennie James is the real deal. I can't think of a better actor to don the cowboy hat, and rule Megaton with an absolute love for the law.
Moira Brown - Kristen Schaal
What's the first thing you think of when you think Moira Brown? That unique, and often annoying, voice she had. Kristen Schaal has an equally as memorable voice, and would be able to provide perfect comic relief to a story that can get pretty dark and heavy at times.
Mister Burke - Ed Westwick
The Gossip Girl vet is showing that he can get his elegant creep on in his new series Wicked City. I can picture him now, sitting in the dark corner of the saloon, trying to sweet-talk innocent bystanders into making a deal they'll soon regret.
Allistair Tenpenny - Christoph Waltz
Tenpenny sits on a tower of his riches, overlooking a wasteland that he can't stand the sight of. Sure, Waltz may not look as old, but he's proven he can pull of the prejudice. I can't think of a better actor to bring out his disgust and holier-than-thou attitude better than the Jew Hunter himself.
Three Dog - Jamie Foxx
The key to Three Dog is finding someone with that great voice for radio. Someone who can communicate his charisma, without losing any of his charm. Foxx brings that and more to the table. With his versatility and vocal talents, he'd be the perfect guy to lead the Wanderer through the wasteland.
Elder Lyons - Jeff Bridges
Just take one look at Elder Lyons and the only thing you'll be able to see is Jeff Bridges as Obadiah Stane. The bald head and the beard are perfect for Bridges, and he sees just enough of the action to keep ole' Jeff on his toes.
Sarah Lyons - Emilia Clarke
Badass blonde out to prove that she's more powerful than anybody takes her for? Umm, Khaleesi? Clarke has proven that she could don the power armor just as easily as she did a dragon, and she wouldn't be afraid to put the bad guys in their place.
Doctor Li - Ming-Na Wen
I can't think of a woman I'd rather have fighting on my side. Through her years as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Wen has proven she can fight the good fight, even when the lines get blurry.
Colonel Autumn - Oscar Isaac
There isn't a better villain in Hollywood. Plain and simple. I know that Autumn isn't the top of the evil food chain out in the wasteland, but he is the main antagonist for James and his son. Isaac has shown he can be a force for evil, and a showdown with Liam Neeson would be a thing of legendary proportions.
The Narrator - Ron Perlman
C'mon, is it really Fallout without Ron Perlman. Just like war, Perlman never changes.
