@Tim_Battershell - And he has ties to LFL!
...You want Captain Darling and Percy to play VAU?
Also, I remembered my other choice.
RoboCop, Peter Weller.
That's a good one.
I think R. Lee Ermey could have worked too.
He seemed suitably sadistic in "Black Death"! Not too large a part, but done well enough, IMO.
I can't see McInnerny as anyone but this:
OK, lets open up the voting for Walon Vau!
The nominees are:
R. Lee Emery
Peter Weller. Both he and Robert Patrick are icons of late 80s/early 90s Science fiction, but I have to go with Weller. He has the emotional edge to him, being able to play emotions across his face while remaining entirely stoic in the process. That I feel works the best for Walon Vau, he's a hard ass, cold killer, but despite his viciousness, there is still an undercurrent of caring in him. He just shows it in a very personal way.
Just look at the way you can see his emotional state change while his face barely moves.
I'll go with Tim McInnerny on the basis of his performance in "Black Death".
This is the hardest vote thus far, alot of really good nominations. But I a going to stick with Clint Eastwood.
Definitely some good choices...but nobody who really feels like Vau to me like Lance Hendriksen. So I'm going to stick with him.
I'm gonna have to throw my vote in for Clint Eastwood!
Hm, I'm really warming up to the idea of Lance Henriksen. But I'll vote for Tom Sizemore anyway. Saving Private Sev FTW.
My vote is going to Peter Weller. Something about him just seems right to me.
Okay, I now officially vote for Lance Henriksen.
Lets give this until the end of the weekend incase anyone still needs a chance to vote.
Cool. Who's next in line I wonder? I've got a couple good woman leads. Also, epic avatar btw Rob.
I saw this in the last Star Wars Insider and thought it was awesome. They did other similar ones as well with Vader and others.
I'm going to have to go with Lance Hendriksen, anyone who does a masterful job with a traitorous American general, Shepard, who started World War III just to get revenge for his men, can do anything.
Seems we need a tie breaker. 3 Wellers vs 3 Hendricksons. Who is the better android?
Robimus has his coin of destiny to resolve all ties.
Robocop versus Bishop. One is a supercop with a bulletproof suit, and the other one is filled with milk bags.
If it was just the two of them I would go with Hendrickson, I think he could play "nastier" better. But I trust to the coin of destiny and won't change my vote.
Nasty or intimidating? Because Weller is a much more imposing man than Hendrickson. He might not have the vicious voice that will make you sit the f*** down, but he can stare at you.
I don't know, Lance just seems a little old and gaunt for my tastes.
Weller would be the more imposing of the pair. I suspect that is why they are tied.
