Mr. Coffee Nerves: Much more important: who will play the Iron Sheik?
rjakobi: That's surprisingly plausible, but who would play the fat kid Hogan?
TheManofPA: Orange pringles can....
Atomic Spunk: Hemsworth is too handsome for that role.
darkjezter: Game of Thrones: Tyrion in the books is described as being very ugly, but in the show he's played by Peter Dinkledge, who many female viewers find to be handsome.
vharshyde: Nah, get Will Sasso to play him.
JolobinSmokin: Ryan Reynolds/he's already ruined Green Lantern, Deadpool and ScoJO.
darkjezter: Atomic Spunk: Hemsworth is too handsome for that role.They refer to this as "adaptational attractiveness" on TV Tropes. Basically, whenever a true story or work of fiction is adapted to television or film, the actor is always more attractive than the person they're portraying. Take the movie Walk the Line: June Carter is played by Reese Witherspoon, who is quite a bit more attractive than the real-life June Carter. Or if you want a fictional example you just need to look at Game of Thrones: Tyrion in the books is described as being very ugly, but in the show he's played by Peter Dinkledge, who many female viewers find to be handsome. Also, Arya is described as being homely in the books, but in the show she's played by Maisie Williams, who is quite cute.
GungFu: Liam Helmsworth isn't bronzed nor baldy enough, and certainly doesn't have yellow string as hair.
DrMcNinja: GungFu: Liam Helmsworth isn't bronzed nor baldy enough, and certainly doesn't have yellow string as hair.He doesn't have blonde Chinese hair, and skin of a hot dog?
rocky_howard: Funny, I had always pegged Hogan for a Thor movie (c'mon, he looks like a Teutonic Thundergod).
gmpilot: Arya IS pretty homely in the show; I can't imagine what your idea of homely is.
darkjezter: But if you want an even better example of adaptational attractiveness you only have to look at Brienne; in the books she's described as a freakishly large and very ugly woman with crooked teeth and broad, masculine features. In the TV show she is played by Gwendoline Christie, who is plain-looking at worst and actually rather pretty when she's all cleaned-up.
scamp-dun-emer: Hulk Hogan has a vastly overinflated idea of how attractive he is/was./CH would not be believable
edip1976: rocky_howard: Funny, I had always pegged Hogan for a Thor movie (c'mon, he looks like a Teutonic Thundergod).You pegged Hulk Hogan?
Gunther: In the books it's pretty clear she's thought of as ugly because she's masculine in build and to Westerosi culture that's the worst way a woman can look. But yeah, even allowing for that; Gwendoline Christie has done some modelling in the past, it's a safe bet she's a little more attractive than the character.
Fixxor: Who will play the giant hulk hogan that demolishes the twin towers?
