    What if in the not so distant future, due to the enormous popularity of the Avatar, they'd make a live action movie for it?  What actors/actresses would you consider perfect for the roles of the Avatar characters?  I know that the setting is distinctly asian, but for the sake of discussion, just let your imaginations run and give your opinion, be it asian, american or even... gasp... british actors (heheheh avatar characters with british accents ). 

    You don't have to give their exact names, considering not all of us can memorize it, just point out an actor playing a character in a movie and state which avatar character he/she would be perfect as. For example, you could say that girl in Uptown girls would be perfect as Toph.  Just dye her hair black, give her green contacts and poof!

    Questions, comments, reactions expected. 

    Praises welcomed. 

    Violent reactions ignored.

    I know! Maybe... Luci Liu as Mai, that would be perfect! And that gal from Elecktra as Ty Lee or the blond from Hihg school musical, and Azula... that one from Underworld! All with contact eyes glasses or whatever, and Ty lee... and toph with Dakota Fanning. Ursa: the woman that played the witch in Narnia.

    Neither would I, the movie will stink...just wouldn't see it happen. Although what katievil said about that women as Azula would be great.

    Azula: I agree with andreitayehp. Kate Beckinsale (AKA that one from Underworld) would be perfect as Azula.

    Iroh: Ian Mkellen (Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings)

    Aang: This guy at my school that looks like Aang when he shaves his head

    Zuko: No real person could accurately portray Zuko's hotness

    Those are good. Btw, severus Snape is played by Allan Rickman. And no one could portray Zuko!

    I actually think Dante Basco might be the best for the role for Zuko.

    1. He IS the voice for him

    2. He isn't that bad of an actor. He played that freedom fighter of Peter Pan's gang in "Hook" that replaced him.

    3. I just put a 3 here to make me sound smart, lol.

    Remember...these are supposed to be teenagers...that chick from X-2 would be perfect as Azula, but she's at least 28...if we're gonna use here may as well use Grey DeLise...a live action movie wouldn't please everyone and I'm totally against it. instead of spending all that money getting actors just use the current ones and use that millions on the already tight as hell animation and production...animation would be so crisp you'll wanna cry...

    I already knows what he looks like, I saw the movie "Hook" and saw the special features of ATLA. Thanks anyway though.

    He's okay, but not right for the job, although I do love how he talks...reminds me of Zuko*drools*, I've been drooling too much

    Yeah you might dehydrate before season 3 comes.

    I thought Dante because I don't know much good teenage actors that are good. But of these characters were adults, my sister thought Hayden Christenson (don't kno hot to spell) would be good. He plays older Anakin on "Star Wars".

    He's hot, but you do know that in movies and series, teen characters are not played by teens, but by adults. Like That's so Raven or Phil Of The Future.
