    If they made KOTH into a live action movie; who would play who?

    I hope it doesn't come to that. Wouldn't a live-action movie be somewhat redundant, given the show's grounded nature?

    Part of the charm of the show is the voice actor's talents. I suppose Stephen Root could pass off as Bill or Buck Strickland, but Toby Russ ain't no Kahn or Cotton. Oh and picture Peggy Hill with about 100 more pounds of a Liberal vegetarian animal rights activist without glasses, but just as ugly. And of course, Bobby is a woman.

    How about Jin from Lost as Kahn and Clint Eastwood as Cotton. Works for me.

    Clint's too tall, and Billy Barty died ten years ago.

    I couldn't see this as a live action movie. If they make a movie, which I personally would find stupid, then it should be animated. The characters might be easy to find people to look like them, but they sure as hell wouldn't sound like them. It would be pointless. Or so I think.

    You're right- it would be pointless, not to mention redundant.

    On that note, I doubt a KOTH movie will ever be made.

    A live action movie for King of the Hill really would be bad! Very, very, pointless, too!

    I would use the word redundant as well.
