I vote for Kelsey as Holly! I'm her Holly fangirl. xD


If you want my two cents, I would have Ashly Tinsdale over, let's say, Ashly Green who's Alice in Twilight.

Some cast memebers are hard to pick.
Artemis should be played by someone younger than he is in the book though because other wise he'll look weird in the later movies, exspecialy if more books are writen.
Mulch should be played by someone who has a natural beard, it will look funny if they don't look natural in it to begin with. And people making fun of A.F. will be bad ( duh ).
Butler, anyone thats buff in real life, except stalone.
Thats my prefferences.

Good points, Millzy. Age is definitely a factor, especially where Artemis' character is concerned,
So if they DO ever get around to making the movie, it will probably end up being an unknown.


Oh: and while I'm here i've done some more thinking since last time I posted, and have finally had a chance to read everyone else's posts, so i've made a few adjustments to my own preference list.

Please see my last post above. :>

I think Missy Peregrym would be good as Holly Short :)

For some reason I can’t imagine any “pre-existing” actors playing the Artemis Fowl characters in the movies. All boys are already too old or not Irish enough to play Artemis. All actresses are too old to play Holly. And everyone else is just... I can’t see it in my mind. Sure this will change once I see the movie, but now it’s just hard.

Except for Opal.

For some reason I always imagined Opal to be a younger Kristin Chenoweth, voice and all. Now I think that she is too old to play her, but if the movie was an animation, she could totally voice her XD

Kristin Chenoweth does have that pixie touch, doesn't she? Though hopefully the person who plays Opal will wear slightly more clothes... :lick:

Missy Peregrym has way too pale skin. I guess that with fake tan or whatever she could look like Holly, but that's not how I ever saw Holly.

Why don't any models wear freaking clothes?!

(*ROFL!*) I KNOW! :laughing:

Well, the fairy uniform is pretty much a catsuit, so whoever plays Holly and Opal,
Would probably need to be pretty confident with themselves...

BTW, I think I got another idea, for who would be a great Holly:
How about Mary Elizabeth Winstead, aka Ramona Flowers from Scott Pilgrim vs. The World ?

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0935541/


She's def. got both the attitude and the looks, imo, but I don't know...


Oh: and Kristin would be a great Opal! She's very cute, and very funny, both of which are key parts of the character, but I'm kind of the fence, on whether or not she could be really evil like Opal is.
Ehh, she's a good actress. she could probably handle it. 8)

Honestly, if it were made into an animated movie then anyone could play the characters. Here's my cast for the animated movie:

Artemis Fowl Sr: David Bowie
Artemis Fowl Jr: Someone unknown
Holly Short: Hallie Berrie (Maybe)
Butler: Gerrard Butler
Commander Root: Liam Neeson
Juliette: Ellen Page
"Edwin, what's the plural for Ox?"
"Oxen. The farmer used his oxen."
"Brian,"
"What?"
"What's the plural for box?"
"Boxen! I bought two boxen of doughnuts."

I'm not sure who I'd choose for an animated film, but for live action...

Artemis Fowl II- Asa Butterfield
Butler- Jason Straitham (sp?)
Commander Root- Robert De Niro
Trouble Kelp- Richard Armitage
Holly Short- Billie Piper

This list just came to me today.

*takes a broom, put on a Run Lola Run song and prepares to undust the topic*

Soo. I mentioned in my introducing post that I've been dreaming about adapting the book since I'm about 10/11. Which means I've got a lot of ideas, especially about the cast, so I'll do it short - name of character, actor/actress, little explanation then move on -, otherwise the post will be awfully long x)

Artemis - Unknown
To me, the best pick for Artemis would be a young, talented and unknown actor. It will sting the fans' curiosity, and maybe launch a career.

Holly - Ellen Page
Already explained in the topic dedicated to Holly, but I put on the photo back, because it's so damn hot *O*
Spoiler:
Image

If she doesn't fit (which is very unlikely because she's a perfect actress), maybe Franka Potente from Run Lola Run. Badass, cute and charismatic, the perfect combination =3

Butler - Bruce Willis
Jason Statham is most likely to be picked as he's mentioned in a lot of articles, but personally I think Bruce Willis would be better. He's a bit older, and looks more experienced (he is indeed by the way) and mature, it would be better even though the character is supposed to be quite young (about thirty I think), he has been through a lot.

Opal Koboi - Christina Ricci
My second favourite actress. She just has the perfect look for an evil machiavelic pixie (no offense, it's a compliment), just look at any picture, you can just draw pointy ears about her hair :D
Spoiler:
Image


Angeline - Natalie Portman
She might look a bit too young, but to me it's still the best : she can portray a character as sunny and tender as also fragile and insane - best example being this movie which convinced everybody that every ballet dancer was a schizophrenic psychopath called Black Swan.
Spoiler:
Image


Commander Root - Robert De Niro
No need to explain. Just look at the picture, he even as the cigare !
Spoiler:
Image


Vinyaya - Jodie Foster
My third favourite actress ! No need to explain either, she's just one of the best actress ever. Plus that would be fun to see her with De Niro again after Taxi Driver :D
Spoiler:
Image


Juliet - Elle Fanning
Dakota's little sister, just as talented but with something more than makes me like her better, no idea what.
Spoiler:
Image


Minerva - Garance le Guillermic
She's maybe a bit old now, but anyway, if they don't pick a French actress to play Minerva, I'll kidnap a warlock demon from another dimension just to turn them into giant steacks then throw them to the lions.
Spoiler:
Image


Foaly - Either Benedict Cumberbatch or Stephen Merchant
Because Cumberbatch is a good actor, but Stephen Merchant, who voiced Portal 2's best character, Wheatley, might be very funny.
Spoiler:
Image
no picture of Benedict, I think everybody knows him ^^

I looked through your list, and had to post just to say yes, this list is practically perfect. I definitely say Artemis should be an unknown. And Natalie Portman sounds like a really good pick for Angeline. I never thought of her before. :)

Well thanks ! I'm glad you think Artemis should be an unknown too, usually I feel a lot lonelier with this ^^'
And about Natalie Portman, actually as far as I can remember I've always pictured her as Angeline when I read the books.
A fun fact when I reread my ideal cast, practically all my favourites started their acting career as young actors : Natalie Portman in Leon (one of my favourite movies of all times, she's just so badass and cute in it !^^), Christina Ricci in The Addams Family movies, and Elle Fanning, Jodie Foster... even Ellen Page started at 10 or 11 ! If it goes on with my cast it's gonna be the child actors movie x) I've always been fascinated by child actors, especially those who manage a successful career after their debuts ; that must also be why I'm so for an unknown starring Artemis. Hmmm.

Thanks !! :D It's been a long time since I've seen an active Artemis Fowl forum (the French one is practically dead by now :'(), I really think I'm going to like it here ! :)
