Aang and Sokka have been casted
« on: February 12, 2008, 01:56:13 AM »
Aang: Jonathan Nguyen Austrailian actor
Sokka: Ether Brent Greek Actor

did some research myself and managed to contact Kevin Huvane from Creative Artists Agency (CAA) and beleive me when i say it was DIFFICULT!

He did confirm to me that castings HAVE NOT commenced (i'm pretty sure he's telling me the truth), except for some actors which have already been attached. Unfortunately, the main character, AANG, has already been assigned to attached Australian actor, Jonathan Nguyen, so i guess the rumors are true.

I'll try to phone again to ask about the casting information

Oh! You are "freelance" from the IMDB board, or are you quoting this? It was very gracious of Kevin Huvane to answer these questions so early in production. It's good news :D

Yes, thanks for the information, that was nice of him to give you that information.  I understand why they've already casted the leads.  They are kind of important and they want to get that out of the way.
I see the world Lucius Hunt, just not the way you see it.

Yes,I screen grabbed that photo myself for the fandom from UnFabulous. There is another scene where he is shown a bit better. He's only on camera for a few seconds. I will post that here if you would like :D

I kinda see some similarities. It's kinda hard to judge from just a photo. I think I have to hear the kid talk, and see what his mannerisms are like to judge whether or not he could be a good Aang. It's going to be a tough decision for the filmmakers involved here, but I think it can be done.

The one thing that comforts me is, they are professionals.  So they know what they are doing.

Yeah, getting the voice right for Aang is key. I can give them a little wiggle room, but ultimately the actor who plays Aang needs to sound pretty darn close to Zach Tyler Eisen.
