Lobo questions and rumors, Clancy Brown cast?



People online are having a field day with this one... Clancy Brown is in talks to star as Lobo, the superhero film to be directed by Guy Ritchie. People either hate it or love it, nowhere in between. I like the casting choice; Brown has a fantastic voice (he voices Lex Luthor for DC cartoons), and he has the physical stature to play Lobo. He may not weigh 300 pounds of muscle, but look what Mickey Rourke was able to accomplish for The Wrestler.

That's the rumor part of the post, what about the questions? Well the question remains, how will Warner Brother portray the anti-hero? Do they go all CGI like The Incredible Hulk? Or do they go half and half like Bill Nighy as Davy Jones in the 'Pirates' movies? OR, straight up makeup like Ron Pearlman in Hellboy? My vote is Hellboy status. The actor needs to act, or else you're using a body double like Darth Vader in the Star Wars films. The makeup in movies is way better than its ever been, they could easily pull off making Brown look like Lobo. Plus, Hellboy and Lobo are both cigar lovers, wink wink to all my fans. We'll keep you posted as more comes up.

I think Brown is a great casting choice!
He can act AND he fits the part.
Take a look at this picture of him:
