Practical_Draconian: If I recall, Clancy Brown was the star voice actor in the cancelled point-and-click Warcraft adventure game (well before WoW) showing the rise of Thrall, complete with him confronting a hookah-smoking Deathwing at one point.
Alphax: Not many other familiar names on the press release. Paula Patton, I've seen the name around, but don't think I've seen her work.Dominic Cooper? Mr. Howard Stark? I have no idea who he'd play. Though he's a tad on the short side, with a kinda high pitched voice, perhaps he could play High Tinker Mettatorque, with a fake beard.
Freschel: I'm here to say this, Everquest > World of Warcraft. That is all you'll ever need to know.
Smoke14: I'm OK with this as long as he does the movie in Mr. Krabs' voice.
drjekel_mrhyde: Smoke14: I'm OK with this as long as he does the movie in Mr. Krabs' voice.I just ran to IMDb to check that. Holy shiat you're right.
Monkeyfark Ridiculous: I don't know what you kids are yapping about in here but it kinda sounds like you're talking some kind of shiat about the Kurgan so knock that shiat off.
Non-evil Monkey: From my understanding it's going to be more of an adaptation of Warcraft 1 then anything else. It's really a misnomer to call it a World of Warcraft movie when it's set a good 25-30 years before even the earliest events of World of Warcraft. In fact the two main characters of the movie aren't even alive in World of Warcraft.
RevRaven: Poor Rawhide.

Alphax: Little about this on IMDB, but they do have this trivia gem..Director Uwe Boll contacted Blizzard about directing the film, but Blizzard refused. As quoted by MTV news Uwe Boll stated "I got in contact with Blizzard, and he said 'We will not sell the movie rights, not to you... especially not to you. Because it's such a big online game success, maybe a bad movie would destroy that ongoing income, what the company has with it."
js34603: I can't believe they're going forward with this movie. Any other movies we can make while the subject is at the height of its popularity? Maybe a Weakest Link movie?How about a Pong movie, that was a pretty popular video game, I think everyone played it...when it was the only game. If not Pong, maybe Contra or Street Fighter?/oh they did make several Street Fighter movies? How were those?
genepool lifeboat: He's a shoe-in for Medivh.
Alphax: genepool lifeboat: He's a shoe-in for Medivh.I'm not sure the voice is right, unless the spirit of Sargaras deepens his voice.
B.L.Z. Bub: Of course it says nothing in the article about Clancy Brown being cash-strapped. Silly me expecting the headlines on Fark to be at least somewhat accurate.
kb8080: Clancy Brown was great as Kurgan, is great as Mr. Krabs, but to me he will always be Brother Justin. I still mourn the loss of Carnivale.
Lady Beryl Ersatz-Wendigo: Blackhand the Destroyer, or possibly Gul'dan. I guess he's of an age to play Ner'zhul as well, but I've always pictured Ner'zhul as a somewhat angstier character than Brown usually plays./he won't be playing a human//we need to get some Ron Perlman up in here- now THERE is a man born to play Gul'dan
