With Robert Rodriguez signed to helm the live action Jonny Quest movie, it's time for a little fan casting fun to see what an awesome movie we could see on the big screen.
RACE BANNON (GEORGE CLOONEY)
Having worked with Robert Rodriguez on other projects, George Clooney would be perfect as Dr. Quest's right hand man and Jonny's body guard. Having played a pediatrician in ER and a secret agent in several movies, this would be perfect casting for Roger "Race" Bannon.
DR. BENTON QUEST (EWAN MCGREGOR)
Having already pulled off the mentor type as Obi Wan Kenobi in Star Wars movies, Ewan McGregor can even pull off he beard. An attentive if somewhat busy father and well grounded, if mildly absent minded genius. A scene where Dr. Quest walks into a gathering with his lab coat on over his tux could only be pulled off by this guy.
JONNY QUEST (CHARLES VANDERVAART)
Canadian born actor Charles Vandervaart has been tagged a few times as JQ, and it would be a good fit for the energetic young actor. We need Jonny as a younger, decent, well trained, if impetuous kid. We need an all American kid, and this Canadian would fit the bill.
HADJI SINGH (KARAN BAR)
Karan Bar has humor and charm to spare and could pull off the level headed adopted brother of Jonny. As Hadji is a master of slight of hand and eerily world wise and mature for his age, this would a good role for Karan to leave the Disney camp and stretch his skills with.
DANNY TREJO AS MACHETE
It's a Robert Rodriguez film and a Machete somewhere between Spay Kids and Machete Kills would be fun in this film.
So, there you have t my casting ideas as shared with others of the net. Cannot wait to see what Mr. Rodriguez comes up with himself.
