Thanks for the feedback. I did have Nicholson in mind after seeing him as Jack Torrence and, yes, as the Joker. What do you guys think of the other casts I've put up? I've also started a thread on casting for The Silmarillion.
These are all excellent, Ange!
I can't cast modern movies or really appreciate the casting of modern movies because I'm not really familiar with who the modern stars are.
To wit: as promised the casting of my fantasy Justice League of America movie circa 1965:
Superman (Clark Kent): Rock Hudson (Hudson was the person that artist Curt Swan based his Superman drawings on.)
Batman (Bruce Wayne): Guy Williams (he played Zorro, which was one of the influences for Batman.)
Wonder Woman (Dianna Prince): Linda Harrison (she appeared briefly as Wonder Woman in an unrealized TV pilot.)
Green Lantern (Hal Jordan): Paul Newman (he was the model on which Silver Age Green Lantern's look was based.)
Flash (Barry Allen): Steve McQueen
Martian Manhunter (J'onn J'onzz): Yul Brynner (exotic looking with bald head)
Aquaman (Arthur Curry): Robert Redford
The Atom (Ray Palmer): David Hedison
Green Arrow (Oliver Queen): Kirk Douglas
Black Canary (Dinah Lance): Stella Stevens
Hawkman (Katar Hol): Charleton Heston
Hawkwoman (Shayera Hol): Raquel Welch
Snapper Carr (Lucas Carr): Bobby Rydell
