There's something about Gendo!

Postby Kiel » Sat Aug 07, 2004 4:34 pm

Okie dokallie neighborinos.

I think that Gendo is just one of those characters that needs to be casted perfectly...or else.

So here's my little poll about who you'd want to see as the Man with the Master Plan.

I've taken some of the best picks for an actor across the interweb, i think.

The actual poll system won't let me use all of the actors I'd like so...here they are!

Kevin Spacey,
Alan Rickman,
Billy Bob Thornton,
Dustin Hoffman,
Hugo Weaving.

You be the judge!

WOAH! WOAH THERE! What the fuck mate? That's not cool at all! How can you leave Patrick Stewart out of that list.

Alan Rickman.


Thats all there is too it. he might not look a whole lot like gendo. but alan rickman is a GOD at playing people like Gendo. I know a lot of people don'e want Harry Potter actors playing in the live action Eva movie. But come on people he is so good at stuff like this.
i think cosplay is a lot like communism, it seems like a good idea, but it never turns out the way you want.

If there is an english version of Gendo, I would like to see Gary Oldman take a stab at it. He is just absolutely bitchin in everthing he's been in.

Damn, it's too bad it isn't 1965. Yul Brynner would have been perfect either way... :cry:

Dustin Hoffman would make a better Fyutsuki
Hugo Weaving should play Gendo

What about David Carradine (Bill) from the Kill Bill series?

I see it like this...when the government seiges NERV Gendo whips out his mad kung fu skillz and fights his way down to the LCL plant!

No...nevermind...I'm taking too much artistic liberty with that one...but still it give me an idea :twisted:

That's just crazy enough to work!

I meant that whole thing as a bad joke...but still...I want to hear Gendo or the Gendo-esque character assert his pimpness, by saying and then doing something totally KICK ASS!

I'd have to say that Gendo very quickly asserts his pimpness during the first episode when the large steel beam goes flying at him and he doesn't even flinch.

Then again he asserts it when he removes the entry plug door thingy with his hands.

If either of those scenes are included in the movie then I think he'll come off looking pretty bad ass.

It would definatly help out his pimp factor if they make it seem like the rest of the Nerv employees are freaking out during the angel attacks but he remains completly nonchalant.

I wish I could make an eva movie.

LOL. I just got a mental image of Gendo using his signature hand gesture to hold a sandwich.

Relevance? I DON'T KNOW!!!!

Wait sec...what signature hand gesture? You the one when he's sitting down and he's got his fingers folded between one another?
