The Cast of the Warcraft Movie

The Cast of the Warcraft Movie

I thought it would be a fun exercise to act as though I’m the person responsible for selecting the cast of the Warcraft movie and share my picks for who I think would be great in some of the more well known roles.

Truthfully of course I have no idea which part of the the Azerothian lore they’re going to cover, nor who will be cast so this is just an exercise for fun, okay?

    These are all spot on. My only suggestion would be Ben McKenzie as Anduin Wrynn. Adrian Brody as Illidan. He’s have to bulk up a little bit, but I think he’d make a great Illidan. Jesse Spencer (House) as Malfurion.

    It must of taken quite a bit of thought to match these up so well. I think that you should be the casting director for the movie. LOL
