So, ummm for some reason Green Arrow did not cross my mind to do a [Fantasy] Casting for, done all sorts of fan-casting tomfoolery like Ken and Barbie, Flashdance, Back to the Future, and so many more. Yeah, that’s right… nothing is sacred around here.
For the lame asses who don’t know, Green Arrow is more than just reasonable CW series, he’s an elite superhero of the all mighty Justice League. Oliver Queen aka Green Arrow, first appeared in 1941 as a Pacific Northwest billionaire of Queen Industries who utilizes his unique archery skills and employs a team to fight crime in Star City/Seattle.
Without much further udo….
Where do you know this beautiful face from, well, you know this beautiful face from programming straight out of teenage girls’ wet dreams, or out of the following The Secret Circle, Twisted, and 10 Things I Hate About You. Zylka has since graduated from teen girls’ wet dream, and moved on to HBO’s The Leftovers. He’s got the experience, the physique, and the overall arian aesthetic of Oliver Queen. Lastly, he’s a young’n who will be able hang for the next 5 kazillion phases DC Comics roll.
He’s somewhat of a cliche choice, but he’s still a solid choice. Not sure if the script for the project would be enticing enough to even peak Goslings’ interest, but damn I hope so. He’s going to put the butts in the seat that a lesser known superhero needs in order to receive a green light for a franchise, and of course has the chops and physicality to execute the demanding role.
Rounding out for the shallow choice of the night is Eastwood. Yet to see any of this fellas films, but I don’t recall ever hearing anyone say that his less critically popular films were bad due to him. That being said, he’ll come cheap as he’s no where near Hollywood’s A-List, making room to hire on highly skilled screenwriters, and director to make sure this film has a chance to franchise and doesn’t one-off e.g. The Green Hornet… if anyone still has the horrific memory of that shit.
Parrish is defintiely a dude that deserves a break, he’s a huge gamble because you know… no one know who the hell he is for the most part. If you can think far back enough to the mid-2000′s, you’ll remember his face in Weeds and if you managed to stick with Fox’s The Following you might recognize his face from there. He’s even bulked up little, not enough, as of late and could do this role with no problem. All Hollywood has to do is re-introduce him to the public as that new hottie, and boom! that boy is in there. He too has time on his hand as younger contender for this role for the many phases of a DC franchise.
Would love to take credit for the following two, but they are not my original ideas. So thank you, @bisexualbarbaragordon (aka tumblr crush #4810) for throwing Alexander Skarsgard and Charlie Hunnam’s names in the ring.
