Halo TV Show: What actors/actresses would you like to see?

Recommended Posts

I know we are a long way out, but I thought it may be fun to spark up some conversation on possible actors/actresses to be in the upcoming Halo TV Show with executive director Steven Spielberg.

 

I know we won't see A-List Celebrities taking the role of The Chief like we might of gotten with a Halo Movie, but it's still worth making a wish list.

 

Here is a list of some of the key roles (This is what Wikipedia has listed as Characters of Halo)

 

Master Chief: Steve Downes Voice (current voice of MC)

 

Cortana: Lexa Doig , Olivia Wilde

 

Avery Johnson: Idris Elba , Samuel L. Jackason , Denzel Washington,

 

Jacob Keyes: Stephen Lang , Will Pation

 

Miranda Keyes: Evangeline Lilly ,Sprague Grayden

 

Catherine Hasely:  Sally Field

 

Franklin Mendez: Alan Dale , Demian Bichir

 

Terrence Hood: Ron Perlman (already the voice of character)

 

Kelly, Spartan-087: Gina Carano

 

Fred, Spartan-104: Scott Adkins

 

Naomi, Spartan-010: Gwendoline Christie

 

 

 

 

 

---Plug in some TV actors/actresses that you'd like to see fill these roles and feel free to add characters not listed!!!

 

I will update this with people's suggestions as they come in!

Lol, I love your pick for Johnson. 

 

Cliche, but Johnson's attitude automatically makes me think that Samuel L Jackson would be fitting.

I'd love to Samuel L as Johnson lol.  I could see him now with a big cigar saying something like, "These Covenant are some real Mother F*ckers!!!"

Sprague Grayden as Miranda Keys would be alright I think. She was pretty good in Jericho. 

 

If I had to guess for a Halo TV series, I think they might go with the whole Lasky storyline. Like pick up right were Forward Unto Dawn was at. I think they could keep the same actor to play "young" Lasky.

Ooohhh good pick there.  

 

I would be fine with them continue FUD storyline.  For a low budget mini-series, FUD was incredible.

Did they say when the Halo TV series takes place time-wise?

 

 

They did not. But they did say the budget would be similar to that of Game of Thrones which is a plus.

Some of these actors listed aren't tv actors though, sadly. And in order for them to be in the show they would have to take a big pay cut. I could see Jackson doing it though, he's been known to take pay cuts for roles he loves.

 

Nathan Fillion is a must IMO.

Lots of movie actors have been doing TV recently. Also a mini series isn't the same commitment as a continuing show.

This isn't a mini series though, this is a full out tv series.

I personally think that the show is going to be based off the events of Halo4/Halo5 more so than the past. But here are three characters I'd like to see in the show no matter what.

 

Kelly, Spartan-087 (Or any female spartan if they choose to follow the new spartans)

Gina Carano

Former MMA champion and now an actress, she stared in the movie Haywire.

Fred, Spartan-104

Scott Adkins

Has been in movies such as The Expendables, The Bourne Ultimatum, and Zero Dark Thirty. He does a lot of his own stunts and he is very skilled in Martial arts.

Naomi, Spartan-010

Gwendoline Christie

She plays Briene of Tarth on GoT, and she stands 6'3.

I'm aware of this, I was just pointing out that it'd be harder to get A-List Actors&Actresses for a TV show. :)
