Now for round two:
I'll begin reiterating the cast from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 that will return. If you'd like to check out my Modern Warfare fancast, check it out!
James Mcavoy as John "Soap" McTavish
Daniel Craig as Cpt. John Price
Tom Hardy as Nikolai
Ok, now we continue!
Toby Kebbell as Ghost
I'd like to keep Toby Kebbell, Gaz from the first Modern Warfare, and make him Ghost as well. I think it would be fun to shroud this/these characters in mystery. Somehow make a story out of his return.
Sam Claflin as Gary "Roach" Sanderson
Sam Claflin is always strong in the roles he has, and can be very tough. He'd be a great Roach. Roach is one of the playable characters in MW2 so we don't know much about him, but I think Sam Claflin would be an excellent fit.
In addition to these main members of Task Force 141, I would include and expand these characters:
Jeremy Renner as Ozone
Jeremy Renner is Jeremy Renner; no other explanation needed. But, Ozone, a character featured in "Loose Ends", would be a more important character. He's an American soldier that would not be killed in this "episode", but will go on to play an important role later.
Idris Elba as Chemo
Idris Elba is a brilliant actor. He's very intimidating in all the right ways. Chemo would be another member of 141 and would, unfortunately - and tragically - die at the end of this installment.
Sullivan Stapleton as Scarecrow
Scarecrow is Ozone's best friend. Sullivan Stapleton is a solid actor and played a similar role in Strike Back. Always entertaining.
These three would be the primary additions. There would have to be other members as well (Royce, Meat, Worm, etc.). Also, this guy:
Norman Reedus as Pfc. Joseph Allen/Alexei Borodin
Norman Reedus is fantastic on the Walking Dead and would be great as the hardened tough guy who's hamartia leads to his death.
Now to the American campaign:
Wilmer Valderrama as Pvt. James Allen
Wilmer Valderrama is a great actor. He's proven himself to be tough, even scary in the From Dusk Till Dawn television show. I think he'd be a good character to follow in this storyline.
Tyler Perry as Sgt. Foley
Tyler Perry proved that he can do more than funny in Alex Cross. He did a solid job and I think he'd be great as Foley, barking orders at Ramirez.
Jamie Dunn as Cpl. Dunn
I think Jamie Bell is perfect for this role. He's always great and Dunn is right up his alley.
David Morse as Lt. General Shepherd
David Morse has played what is essentially the archetype for General Shepherd on multiple occasions. And overtime he has played it brilliantly. Why not one more?
Now the villains!
Jay Hernandez as Alejandro Rojas
He's a very solid actor. I would want to expand this role a bit, as well. But Jay Hernandez would make a good "Alex the Red."
Radivoje Bukvic as Vladimir Makarov
Radivoje Bukvic was a great villain in the A Good Day to Die Hard and Taken so why not Modern Warfare? He could play the absolutely detestable Makarov to perfection.
And that is number two. Stay tuned for Modern Warfare 3!
