Title: Admiral Zhao
Post by: ACDCguy on July 26, 2008, 12:56:58 AM
As we all know Jason Isaacs is famous for his role as Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter film series. But he is also the voice of Admiral Zhao of the Avatar: The Last Airbender series. And judging by his preformace as Lucius in Harry Potter I think he'll do a good job reprising his role as Zhao in the live action movie The Last Airbender.

I think Hugh Jackman should be Admiral Zhao.

Jason Issacs is not broad or big as Zhao, also he has blue eyes not brown

does it really matter? Those things can be changed. I bet none of the ppl cast will be exactly like their characters. It's just not practical.

Jasson Issacs would make a great Zhao! After all hes had experience playing a ruthless military officer bent on victory even if it means do thing considered 'unethical' in "The Patriot", so The Last Airbender should be a snap for him. Besides I'd like it if some of the voices were the same in the live action movies.

I can just see Jasson Issacs with sideburns!
Title: Re: Admiral Zhao
Post by: happyelectrons on August 03, 2008, 01:16:43 PM
ok maybe it's not sideburns but doesn't he look like admiral zhou in this picture?? plus he has the character down since he plays him and he is a phenominal actor and he might be available to do it because the project he is in during the time of shooting is likely going to get shutdown according to imdb.com.

Agree. I love Jason Issacs, he knows villain roles more than any actor I've seen, and he does play Zhao, so he'd be a good cast.

I even asked my mom if he'd be a good zhao, she said yes.  :D Hugh Jackman would be my second choice, but I don't think he's gonna do it for the reason of the wolverine movie.

Idk why but I think Jackie chan should be Zhao. He just has that kind of humor, he just needs to make himself fat.

Hugh Jackman is a lot more buff and more familiar with fighting scenes so I give him the edge over Jason Isaacs. As far as the Wolverine movie is concerned, it's already finished filming I believe.

Another vote for Hugh Jackman. The perfect person for Zhao
Title: Re: Admiral Zhao

Ya, Issac is not broad enough...I think this little forum thread should have been a poll
Title: Re: Admiral Zhao
Post by: Free Firelord on August 03, 2008, 07:41:18 PM
I still say Jasson Issacs would do a great job. He knows the character, he's familar with the story, plus he's a great villian, the kind you can just really hate. That and he probably isn't doing anything then. He's the kind of actor who will appear in only a few roles, but he's so great at them he will remain in your mind as a classic.

That was an awesome-ly summarized reason.

I pesonally think Jason Issacs should play Zhao, but I think think Hugh Jackman is a more logical choice because he does fit Zhao's apperance better and he is already done with his work on Wolverine while Jason Issacs will be going back to work on Harry Potter when The Last Airbender will be filming. Plus it would be a good change of roles for Hugh since he has been playing a hero in most of his current movies. I'll porbably be best if Issacs plays Ozai.

wow i never thought of that i mean in the harry potter movies he could pull it off as ozai!

Ya, and doing book 3 would be after Harry Potter book 7 pt 2 would be done
Title: Re: Admiral Zhao
Post by: monkeyswima on August 06, 2008, 11:09:40 AM
ya but i think he can go back and forth and btw mr malfoy doesn't have a major role in book 7 and with the way they film movies its going to not be predominant
Title: Re: Admiral Zhao
Post by: thejohngalt on August 06, 2008, 11:13:05 AM
Still, Ozai is much broader than Issacs, so Night may not pick him :-\

that is very true

excuse me, but i think that's phooey. lol. That stuff just doesn't matter as much when you look at the details.

And Issacs would have to get a tan
Title: Re: Admiral Zhao
Post by: happyelectrons on August 06, 2008, 12:41:37 PM
yeah like acting, character portrayal, chemistry, the sreen test, other projects he's doing. and a bunch of other stuff that goes into casting that we don't even know about. It just seems silly that Shyamalan might get hung up on the broadness of shoulders.

there's this thing called make-up....

they made Robert Downey Jr. black for goodness sake. I wouldn't worry about it.
Title: Re: Admiral Zhao
Post by: thejohngalt on August 06, 2008, 12:48:30 PM
ya, but do you think that movie will be any good :-X
Title: Re: Admiral Zhao
Post by: happyelectrons on August 06, 2008, 12:50:30 PM
I actually think it will be funny. But i only brought it up to prove a point. Make-up can make anybody into their character. You see what I'm sayin?

Don't point out my weaknesses!!!! lol  ;)

Back on topic, I was re-watching some of book one yesterday and when I heard Zhao's voices, I actually for a moment thought Hugh Jackman WAS the voice actor!
Title: Re: Admiral Zhao
Post by: thejohngalt on August 06, 2008, 01:06:55 PM
Interesting, which proves my point it should be Hugh Jackman
Title: Re: Admiral Zhao
Post by: Free Firelord on August 06, 2008, 09:28:48 PM
I still think Jasson Issacs should be Zhao. I mean all that stuff like fitness and tans can be fixed. Do you honestly think celebrities are alway so buuf and hot. No! They have personal trainers to prepare for roles and computer imagery can fix any 'unattractive' points of their bodies.
