Here's the situation (not the stupid jersey shore dude), you have a huge budget to film any movie you would like. You can choose 2 actors to star in your film. The big question is: who would you choose?
I have been racking my brain around this one, and I think I have come to a decision. The choice of my actors depends on the script I have and the overall flavor of the flick. For me, I have to go Sci-fi horror. A huge film I love is Event Horizon, and I would love to capture something along those lines. The first actor I would love to cast in this movie is Cillian Murphy. What he brings to the realm of Sci-fi horror is immeasurable. He brings a natural creepiness and a versatility that can match any scene, whether it be a comedic or suspense scene.
The second actor I would love to bring in is Richard Jenkins. He brings in general awesomeness at the current moment. I love his acting style. In the film The Visitor, Jenkins delivers a serious performance that captures a widowed college professor in both believability and essence (in terms of human nature). I think he could balance very well with Murphy while delivering and amazing performance.
So, what actors/actresses would you choose and why?
