Bubba suggested that the movie not be made with Mr. Gibson.


This started me thinking of potential alternate lead actors..





IF the movie were to be made, and Max Rockatanski were still to be the lead character, who do you folks reckion ought to be courted for the part?





Myself, I think Russell Crowe. He's good, he's rugged and has that brooding, kinda sad/cool thing going for him.








IF the movie is set some time AFTER Max's death.....


Hell, I have no idea. I'd need some info on the lead character do even BEGIN thinking of casting.

Colin Farrell would make an excellent Max Rockatansky.


He played a Villian/Hero character in American Outlaw based on Jesse James. His performance was quite good in this complex dual role.


I have to agree though, Russel Crowe can create bad ass pensive characters that transcend to the myth surrounding Max.

No.


Mel GIbson is the only one who could play Max Rockatansky.


Just create another character. If they'll do that, well, I wanna see Clive Owen playing a Mad Max-typed lead character, still not being Max himself...


Max is the one.

Be at ease, Uncle..





We're merely thinking of alternate actors we feel would be good as a Second Best in the event they attempted to do the movie WITH Max, but WITHOUT Mel..





Obviously Mel would be Ideal and It would not be the best idea to do Max Without him..





My thoughts would be Why do a Mad Max mnovie at ALL without Mad Max??

Here's one from slightly left of centre ...


Shannon Knolls (runner-up from Australian Idol)


Think of the mechandising, teen appeal and he could do the theme song as well. We don't need another Tina.


I'm only being kind of serious here folks!
