Hello and welcome to a new series of threads that may or may not be successful.
Good news, Hollywood are remaking tonnes of classic films… and they’ve asked YOU to be the casting agent.
First up is Back to the Future.
Who do you think should play Marty McFly and Doc Brown?
Please show your working.
Most likes wins.
Doc: Bruce Dern
Someone old and Tim sherwood (one of them has a gilet right? Not seen it)
Marty McFly - The fella who plays Spencer Reed on Criminal Minds
Dunno who Doc Brown is
Marty McFly: Sam Rockwell (will need cgi de-aging)
Doc Brown: Ted Danson
Never really saw any of the classic 80s kids films when I was a kid then watched a couple when I was a bit older (the goonies, ferris bueller) and didn’t like them so didn’t bother with any of the others
Marti - Hailee steinfeld
Doc - idris Elba
marty mcfly: jason statham
doc brown: the rock
Mart: Tom Holland
Doc: Michael Gambon
George: Tom Hollander
Lorraine: Florence Pugh
Biff: Armie Hammer
you’re quite good at this
gambon is too old though. @Steved’s bruce dern shout is pretty good. think he’s past it as well
Swap Gambon for Clark Peters
tbf, the Goonies and Ferris Bueller aren’t actually that good, compared to the likes of BTTF.
ooh…can he do zany though? what about bubbles? he’d be good
Doc - Larry David
Marty - Millie Bobbie Brown
Hailee Steinfeld would be really good as Marty.
Not sure about Elba though - I’ve never seen him do manic without looking too threatening.
Emma Thompson as Doc Brown might work, if you were completely gender-swapping the cast.
bryan cranston could do a decent doc brown i bet
