He was in The A-Team, and he is a pretty popular actor. I can see him working.

^I'd hardly call Midnight Meat Train a light, comedic role for Cooper. And he's in the upcoming horror flick Case 39. For the commander of the military operation I'd love to see R. Lee Ermey(Full Metal Jacket, Seven, Switchback, R. Lee Ermey's Lock & Load) leading the charge against the Big-G. I was let down a bit with a lot of things in X-Men:The Last Stand when the powers that be just had him do a voice over when giving the troops their orders to equip themselves when dealing with Magneto's Brotherhood. I was secretly hoping to see Magneto and Ermey have some sort of face off. Onesided for sure, but have them butt heads nonetheless. Another gentleman with a heck of a lot of cred in the fan community would be Tom Atkins(The Fog, Night of the Creeps, Lethal Weapon, My Bloody Valentine 3D) for the milyary commander. Or a guy who often seems to be a bit type casted in the roll, Robert Patrick(Terminator 2, The Unit, Stargate Atlantis:The Rising, CopLand, The Faculty ).

You want military commanders?



You could probably have his mustache play a cameo as Mothra's Cocoon.

Would anyone like to see Danny Trejo (Con Air, Spy Kids, XxX, Predators, and Machete) play a role in the movie? I think he would be perfect for a military solider in the movie.

I'd love to see Bruce Campbell have a role in the film, because things could get ugly - reeeaaal ugly. Hail to the king, baby.

As long as an actor fits the role he/she is to play accordingly, I don't mind too much, as long as their acting doesn't suck and their characters aren't half-arsed carbon copies of some other character like a large number of character have been in alot of recent movies (and I mean both Hollywood and Toho with a few exceptions).

As a whole, I'd like to see an American and Japanese cast. In a scene with two or more Japanese characters speaking to each other away from and English speaking American character, they could speak in Japanese translated by English subtitles. Not only would it help acknowledge Godzilla's history as a Japanese Icon (Its Godzilla, you can't take the Japan out of him without totally ruining his character and style), but it can help people get used to watching a Godzilla movie in Japanese with subtitles.

As many of you are hoping for (myself included), that this movie may end up being good (as long as they REALLY live up to their promise to stay true to the franchise, and at least try to incorporate modern Hollywood suitmation on top of that), this can get more American interested in Godzilla and hey can watch the older films on DVD/Blue Ray/whatever in Japanese with subs, as well as any new Toho Godzilla films. A way to market the older films and creating an international atmosphere for a new series.

I cannot suspend my disbelief enough to buy Godzilla defeating Sam Elliot's mustache.

I don't care what anyone thinks about that movie, Sam Elliot as General Ross was the highlight.

What about Natalie Portman (Star Wars Episode I-III, V for Vendetta, and Thor) for a female lead role?

He played the perfect Ross.

Wouldn't mind seeing him as a military commander again.

John Rhys-Davies.

I say this because it seems that after Lord of the Rings he's been mostly working on Scy Fy Original movies. I think the last time got a big screen release was that Uwe Boll movie that managed to be worse than Dungeons and Dragons and...yeah. He's pretty popular with the Sci Fi crowd, or at least widely recognized.

She's nice eye candy but that's really it, Unless she does something amazing in ''Black Swan'' besides the lesbian scene with Mila Kunis which i look forward to. Besides she's already in heavy talks to be in the ''Alien Prequel'' at this point.. So i personally wouldn't want her in the upcoming movie.

Off the top of my head i can think of any female actress id want in the upcoming Godzilla film in a main role. That's not me trying to be rude, but most current female actress's can't act worth a shit.. Unless it was someone with experience an actual quality in there performance's then No.

Actually id laugh my ass off if ''Betty White'' got a small Cameo in Godzilla just because that woman can always make me laugh. Hell she made Lake Placid an she was barely in it.

Definitely no Megan Fox, no John Cusack, no big name stars in my opinion. I think it should be a relatively unknown cast to put more realism into the movie, and we don't want any famous actors-actresses outshining the real main character: GODZILLA!

Big name stars help the movie make money as well since it will make people check it out.

Once again, I can imagine James Spader playing a serious reporter like Steve Martin (from G:KoM).
I don't want to see Bruce Campbell.

Michelle Rodriguez was great in "Avatar" (2010), and "Machete" (2010). I still would love to see Danny Trejo in the movie as a human villain. A character that plans to destroy Godzilla while the other main characters believe that Godzilla is not truely evil at all.

Knowing Gareth Edwards, he might hire some unknown TV stars and maybe one or two main major actors/actress. Godzilla himself will be the big ticket seller afterall.
