I thought about this while reading the X-men thread. If you could recast a reboot movie using only actors from one show how would you do it? I thought of Lost. I think Josh Holloway would make a good Wolverine because of his demeanor and attitude. His height doesn't matter. I included characters who never made it to the movies but I might like to see.


Terry O'Quinn - Professor Charles Xavier

Alan Dale - Eric Lensherr / Magneto

Matthew Fox - Scott Summers / Cyclops

Rebecca Mader - Jean Grey

Ian Somerhalder - Angel

William Mapother - Beast

Josh Holloway - Wolverine

Tania Raymonde - Kitty Pryde

Dominic Monaghan - Banshee

Henry Ian Cusick - Gambit

Evangeline Lilly - Rogue

Emilie de Ravin - Polaris

Nestor Carbonell - Mr Sinister

Jorge Garcia - The Blob

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje - Bishop

John Terry - Senator Robert Kelley

Sonya Walger - Moira Mctaggert

Andrew Divoff - Omega Red

Doug Hutchison - Mastermind

Daniel Dae Kim - Sunfire

Yunjin Kim - Psylocke

Clancy Brown - Sabertooth

Maggie Grace - Dazzler

Brett Cullen - Henry Gyrich

Alice Evans - Emma Frost

Sarah Wagner - Mystique

There's a few I can't find good casting for such as Colossus Nightcrawler and Iceman. Anyone have any ideas?

Madmen / Batman

Jon Hamm - Bruce Wayne / Batman

Sam Page - Nightwing

John Slattery - Commissioner Gordon

Jared Harris - Alfred

Vincent Kartheiser - Joker

Alison Brie - Harley Quinn

Aaron Staton - Harvey Dent

Peyton List - Catwoman

Colin Hanks - Riddler

Christina Hendricks - Poison Ivy

Jessica Paré - Julie Madison

Joseph Culp - Scarecrow

This one was tough because I wanted to cast a lot of Madmen actors but had no where to put them. Also I couldn't think of a good Batgirl or Robin.

I always wished Smallville would've spun off into a Superman show. Michael Ironside as Perry White is interesting too.

Personally best wolverine actor for me would have been Sonny Landham,from first predator movie in his younger days of course. Wolverine is supposed to be short and stocky not tall.

I like your Buffy casting but I think Seth Green should be Iceman and Armin Shimmerman could be toad.
