That would work
 
2013-08-19 06:39:57 PM  
Why is this on the Entertainm...oh, never mind.
 
2013-08-19 06:42:54 PM  
Nice Peter already has the part locked down, brother.

Hemsworth is too handsome for that role.
 
2013-08-19 06:45:26 PM  
yeah Hemsworth would be pretty good casting.  How do you cast Andre the Giant though?  Mark Ruffalo and the Hulk team?  Who plays Vince McMahon?
 
2013-08-19 06:46:32 PM  
That's surprisingly plausible, but who would play the fat kid Hogan?
 
2013-08-19 06:53:20 PM  
Who would Nick chauffeur to the set?
 
2013-08-19 06:54:39 PM  
get Hogans daughter to play him.

spitting image.

Much more important: who will play the Iron Sheik?
 
2013-08-19 07:03:08 PM  
Can't they get from Brad from Home Improvement to play Hogan? Not that he looks that much like him, I'd just like to see Brad from Home Improvement in something again.

/His last movie was also Thor

When he's down and out and the crowd energizes him, his eyes wide open, he's shaking, his opponent hits him not affecting him.  Seeing CH do that will be nothing but farking hilarious.

Tom Hiddleston?

Hulk Hogan has a vastly overinflated idea of how attractive he is/was.

/CH would not be believable

Mr. Coffee Nerves: Much more important: who will play the Iron Sheik?


the steel toe match between Iron Sheik and Sgt. Slaughter was my favorite match from when I was a kid. the sunday wrastlin before Kunk-fu theatre was the best tv line-up, and it was on the USA network!

Funny, I had always pegged Hogan for a Thor movie (c'mon, he looks like a Teutonic Thundergod).

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.

He also wants his pre-'roid testicles back.
 
2013-08-19 09:00:10 PM  
Are they going to include the scene where he and his son were racing and someone got half his head taken off? That might be saved for the director's cut.
 
2013-08-19 09:09:20 PM  
...and listen to his parents, and eat all his vegetables so he can get big and strong like the Hulkster,
 
2013-08-19 09:14:24 PM  
Yeah, he could probably pull it off...but I'm not sure if he is still in "Hulkster" shape.

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.


They do that because he's famous and the personality he portrays in the show oozes charisma. No qualm with being a midget, but the dude is not "handsome".

Stick to comparing real life characters anyway. Fictional ones are irrelevant in this discussion.

Erin Brockovich being played by Julia Roberts and things like that.

Nah, get Will Sasso to play him.

Take that back. He played one good DP, until the 'ending' (I prefer to think of it as an unhappy mirage.)

Arya IS pretty homely in the show; I can't imagine what your idea of homely is.

Liam Helmsworth isn't bronzed nor baldy enough, and certainly doesn't have yellow string as hair.

I really liked Hogan until he opened his mouth, I watched wrestling on and off as a kid, but seriously ever since he opened his mouth I finally realized how stupid he is.

/His kid deserves to be in prison, his wife might as well too with his/her alcohol problems

gmpilot: Arya IS pretty homely in the show; I can't imagine what your idea of homely is.


In the books, Arya is so long-faced and homely that she's frequently mistaken as a boy.  In the show, people being able to mistake Arya for a boy was dropped in Season 2 because Maisie Williams looks too much like a girl to make it believable (Tywin knew right away she was a girl, some of his more dim-witted subordinates didn't - and I don't think anyone has mistaken her for a girl since).

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.

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.

At 6'3", I'd still be afraid she'd break my dick off.

Hulk Hogan is Donald Trump only with worse hair.

Leave him back in the 1980s where he belongs.
