WoW: The Movie

By now we all know that there is going to be a WoW movie directed by Mr. Raimi. I though it would be fun to think of some actors to play some of our main characters in a movie (even though I am sure they won't be using many of these characters).
Heath Ledger (R.I.P) as Arthas: Ledger showed that he could turn himself into a man while playing the Joker. He has also had his share of nice guy roles. A guy that could have played Arthas at any stage.

Mickey Rourke as Garrosh: Mickey Rourke has made a nice comback lately and plays a perfect badass. Plus he is fugly in real life which means less makeup to play an Orc.

Brendan Gleeson as Magni: He seems to be a perfect fit to play the stout Dwarver Warrior. They would obviously have to do something about his size, but it has all been done before.

Hugh Jackman as Varian Wrynn: I thought he had a good look for the part and has played Wolverine, yet another emo kid.

Ron Perlman as anyone who needs a part. Seriously. I love this guy. He is ugly as shit and plays awesome parts.

Megan Fox as Sylvanas: She just needs to look pretty. Speaking parts not needed.

The Rock as Thrall: Lok Tar Okar. The Rock would be a good look for Thrall, but I am not entirely sure about the acting part.
Anyways, what would be your choices for parts in the WoW movie?

Some good, fun choices. Yeah... Heath would have been awesome now that you mention it.

Michael Clark Duncan should totally play Cairne Bloodhoof.

And if we're not accounting for size, Nathan Lane would make a great gnome.

The Rock is actually a decent actor... discuss.

I actually like the Rock as an actor as well. Just kinda hard to take him seriously sometimes.

Ha ha this post is full of win! And I like your choices btw. What about Bruce Willis, no role for him?

You're right on with Heath Ledger as Arthas.

And my wife would approve of any role for Hugh Jackman. (Wrynn would be fine, but he could also do a Wolvar role if required.)

I cant picture thrall doing the rock bottom to anyone though. I def agree with ron pearlman, and any part where megan fox just doesnt have to talk at all. I also agree with the commenter above on Michael Clark Duncan. That guy even sounds like a tauren. Speaking of fomer wrestlers who look the part, have to get Nathan Jones in there somewhere.

Hugh Jackman is far too pretty to play Varian, IMO and Meagan unfortunately doesn't have enough intelligence in her eyes to pull off sylvanas.

I'm thinking Ron Perlman for Varian cause he's ugly enough and can pull off obnoxious yet in some ways sympathetic character.

Cristina Ricci for Sylvanas and Jennifer Aniston for Jaina :P

Love your choice of Thrall :)

Wallace Shawn as any gnome (or even every gnome...)

Hugo Weaving (Agent Smith) would make for a great blood elf. I think he played one in "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert," so he's got experience.

I think it would be better to put the rock as the arch druid mal. instead of thrall
