Lol, no I am ok having like famous people as the side parts but no named ppl for the big parts like; David, Tally, Shay, Croy, Zane. You know those kinds of characters. But Dr. Cale is always serious and so is Angelina and she plays those kinds of characters

All I know is she is never portrayed as serious any time I hear people talk about her and I'm sure if she played Dr. C that her character would not be taken seriously....Just my opinion...  :-\

That lady's eyes are a beautiful color of green. She does look cruel. She could work...  :)

The only thing is; she's not pretty...  :-\

Isn't Dr.C a cruel looking pretty? Not a mean looking ugly?  ???
((Not being mean, or disliking that actress, I don't think she'd work, plus she is blonde, I cannot picture Dr. C as a blonde, too bubbleheaded a hair color :P I'm sorta blonde or used to be before I dyed it so nothing against blondes xP ))

I agree when there should be no big names in Uglies. Except, i think for Dr. Cable there could be a bit of an exception. I think Angelina would be okay, but not the best choice.
My pick would be... Olivia Wilde! Because she's really pretty, yet has sharp, dark  features. Something that could be a "cruel pretty" aspect. I think she would be perfect~

Oh, and yeah, not Tilda Swinton... Sorry, no offense to her, just doesn't seem right.

Yep, I like Olivia as Cable.

I really like Nicole Kidman as Dr.C.... in all of her pictures she looks weird, but seeing her in "Golden Compass" you can tell that she would rock as Dr.C.
Title: Re: Who should play DR. Cable???????
Post by: shadley on July 14, 2011, 02:20:35 AM
Oh yes she could play Dr. C. I could also see her as Maddie.
Title: Re: Who should play DR. Cable???????
Post by: Bea-la on July 14, 2011, 02:46:32 AM
Yeah.  I think Olivia Wilde looks way too young for Dr. Cable.... I mean sure they have surgeries to make you look younger, but I always thought of Dr. C as being kind of older looking.... you know, to show authority.

ANGELINA JOLIE!!!!

Yeah, i know what you mean. But maybe by the time they ACTUALLY make the movie, she'll be older. I just can kinda see her playing that type of role, you know?
And I never thought about Nichole Kidman, she could work~ Except... I never pictured her as blonde...
Title: Re: Who should play DR. Cable???????
Post by: shadley on July 17, 2011, 12:35:24 PM
She could dye her hair black or wear a wig.
Title: Re: Who should play DR. Cable???????
Post by: Noelle-wa on July 17, 2011, 12:52:15 PM
True, true. Well, Olivia Wilde is my first choice, and Nichole Kidman could be second-best.

Nicole Kidman! She was simply EPIC in The Golden Compass, all she needs to do is die her hair and put on some harsh looking makeup, and, BABAM! You've got Dr. Cable.

I love love love Olivia Wilde, but I will forever see her as Thirteen from House...And if they did cast her as Cable I'd keep wondering why Thirteen was there and I'd waiting for house to show up on his motorcycle >.<

Thirteen?

Thirteen?

She's a doctor on the show House.

Well, I think, Angelina Jolie would be not bad as Dr. Cable. Angelina is a beautiful woman. Besides, it seems to me rather easy to imagine her looking cruel, so, she could really play a Special. But I agree, that it'd be better without big names in Uglies films... And it's doubtless, that Jolie is a big name... As for Olivia Wilde, from my viewpoint, she's too young and pretty to play such a character. Dr. Cable should be played by an actress aged 35-40, I guess.

I chacha'ed who would play Dr. Cable (chacha is like google only a real live person gives you answers) and they said that Tilda Swinton will play her, idk I think she would be good
Title: Re: Who should play DR. Cable???????
Post by: Bea-la on September 12, 2011, 09:43:10 AM
I just realized that Olivia Wilde directs/writes screenplays!! She's working on a movie right now called Free Hugs.

I think that Tracy Ann-Oberman should play Dr. Cable. She is the exact image I had in my mind of doctor cable.
Title: Re: Who should play DR. Cable???????
Post by: loveand1d on December 12, 2012, 01:31:42 PM
i know right? She wouldn't fit the part right. She doesn't look cruel.

I think, the woman who play Trinity in the Matrix Trilogie would be a good  Cable. Her Name is Ann-Carin Moss or so, right?
But she is old jet. How old is Dr. Cabel actually?

Really? I always thought Trin was kind of uglie. . .

I'm not against "big names" in the movies- however also think it would be great if they found some new breakout stars.

Here are people I think would be great as Dr Cable:

Cate Blanchett

Uma Thurman

Nicole Kidman
(http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Iq-0kUNsTnI/Tw-B3pgTGYI/AAAAAAAAA3A/QYJumIeBQDM/s1600/300.kidman.nicole.0fake.jpg)
She's got the scariest face... it'd be perfect.


And of course Angelina Jolie would be perfect.

I know I've thought of others that would be good in the roll but I've forgotten, I'll probably post them later on.

All of those seem awesome to me!!  ;D

Post by: Soph-la on March 01, 2013, 03:24:06 PM
Now that i think of it if they put Jolie in the appropriate attire and make her look kinda scary then i think she would actually be a pretty good DR. Cable!!
Title: Re: Who should play DR. Cable???????
Post by: Yone on March 04, 2013, 05:55:54 AM
Tilda Swinton or Uma Turman would be perfekt as Cable! Or the woman who plays the vizecancellor in the hitchhikers gude to the galaxy, Anna Cancellor (the name, LOL). She look like I have present me Dr. Cable.
