If I were casting the Warcraft Movie – Alliance Part1

Its not confirmed that there will be one..  In fact people are saying they shouldnt make one as Wow Insider reports Why they Shouldn’t make the warcraft Movie.

In my opinion – 11 million players will probably not translate to 11 million people who would watch this hypothetical movie – I would, but I think just based on the cinema-tics that have been released I think an animated movie would be just as awesome, and possibly better scripted and acted then a real movie could ever be!

But I figured I’d run some casting calls anyway – so for a token person for each race and sex who can I imagine in each role. –  This is being done in two posts – First is Alliance, then I will work on Horde – that’s a little harder but I’m half done.

Update:  Completed:  If I were Casting the Warcraft Movie – Horde Casting

*disclaimer – This is for fun only.  Yes I have changed some of their colors – ( some badley) some are stereotypical of the race picked . Forgive me. Yes there are also a few Australians in there. Oi oi oi!




Male:  Ron Perlman who was Hellboy

or Ka D’Argo(Anthony Simcoe ) From Farscape


Female– Beyonce


Night Elf –
: Crais(Lani John Tupu )  ( Farscape ) Imagine him with green hair – but he has the goate!)

Female– Claudia Black ( Farscape, SG) (  I added the blue, and the stars)

I didn’t Pick Liv Tyler because her role in LOTR while strong in conviction she wasn’t physically strong claudia has the grace of a night elf, and the ‘strength’ as well in the characters she has played.


MaleRussell crowe


Female: I did pick Princess Leia aka Carrie Fisher (  She has that Innocent delicate look those female mages seem to have ) but she is getting rather old..  but it would have to be the easiest  race to pick.

Any female actress,  from Kirsten Dunst , Kristen Steward, Charlize Theron,  think Wholesome  looking characters, then throw Pauley Perrette from NCIS  in as a warlock ( She is 40 – I so hope I look that good at 40 )



Male( Gimli – LOTR) John Rhys-Davies ( who else eh?)


towers2Female   Rosie O’donnell –  I’m thinking the gear could be hunter gear?



Male Verne Troyer ( Mini Me)



Female– Jewel Staite ( She has the look  they would just need to shrink her a little- and she has played an Engineer )

    Depends on how you look at “confirmed”.. at Blizzcon ’07 there was a panel with a bunch of movie types, the director, producer and some others, who talked about how the movie concept was coming along and the Blizzard folks assured us the movie was “in the works” and they were committed to not only bringing this movie to the big screen but also to ensuring the movie was as kick ass as possible.

    To me that was a pretty solid shot in the “confirmed” category.

    However, I heard that there was no mention of the WoW movie at this year’s Blizzcon so it’s anyone’s guess and who knows.. maybe the movie conglomerates are a bit gunshy at the moment due to the economy. I know I read an article about how major movie funding was finally getting hit and the major studios were now having a harder and harder time getting financing and were having to post more up front capitol to garner their funding. This of course was leading the studios to reevaluate their projects and reprioritize.. maybe WoW got reprioritized.

    Nice work! Blue Hellboy just made me laugh!

    Man, I miss Farscape…

    Ahaha! Ron Perlman as a draenei… that would be one helluva weird accent.

    The Rosie pic, though… dear god what have you done.

    I had to go stare at the Leia pic just to get me back on an even keel.
    Did you read that?!

    I had to look at a half naked Princess Leia to get back to sanity!

    OK, I’ll be a troll no more. I’ve been reading your blog for quite some time and I’ve always enjoyed it. My only beef with Carrie Fisher is that she’s like 106 years old now. If we could cast her in 1983, I’d be all for it. But you’re going to have a hard time getting me on board now when she’ll be spending half of her on-set time on Geritol breaks. =)

    @Rogosh – x fingers for hoping it comes – It could be Epic! – It could get wow addicts away from their pc!
    @kyrilean – When Farscape was on our network Stations it was late at night after bedtime, I brought the DVD’s because I liked the two actors that were in Stargates final season, and when I discovered they were both in Farscape ( and claudia black is an aussie) I had to watch it! – Just starting season 3.
    @Euripedes – Rosie – that outfit is actually from a movie she was in ( no photoshopping ) called Exit to Eden
    @Devv – Hi! nice trolls are ok 😛 Ok. Fine. I will replace Leia with Natalie Portman. I think she would make a nice human mage too –

    Hi there, nice blog. I love this post, too. However, I DO have confirmation of the movie… as of Blizzcon 08… You can read the several different sources here. I for one would love to see a film adaptation of the game… It does say in the post though that the 2009 release date is prolly out, but that the film should be made eventually.
