Pretty sure @Meliogirl is Czarnian for “she who devours your entrails and thoroughly enjoys it” based off her Momoa meet scenario. The main man would proud.
Casting Lobo is tough, always has been. Been playing this game since the movie talk started back in the 90s. There was a lot of talk about it in the letters section of his original ongoing Lobo series. Somewhere between issue 1-12.
Around the same time, Muscle and Fitness magazine had an interview with actor Andrew Bryniarski (Batman Returns, “Chip” Shreck) who was actively rallying for the role. The film didnt happen, but he later went on to play him in a fan-made “Lobo: Paramilitary Christmas” short film and killed it. So, a shout out to DC film alumni and fellow Lobo enthusiast, Andrew Bryniarski.
I think with a little Hollywood magic he could still deliver.
That said, here are some actors who I think could pull off a version of Lobo.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan-Alot of people will immediately dismiss this choice, but think about it. Take his performance as the Comedian in Watchmen, mix it with his Negan performance, remove all remorse, regret, accountability, and I feel that’s a solid, intimidating, and charismatic 'Bo.
Ryan Hurst- He played Opie on SOA and now plays Beta on Walking Dead. His real life character seems like a fun guy who is high on life. Maybe for once he can play a more fun version of the strong/violent type. He has the height and hair.
Derek Wilson-Wolf from Future Man (pictured). I can see this working very well as Wilson has great comedic sensibilities and timing, while also being capable of delivering on action and drama. His character Wolf, his real life personality, and his role on Preacher show an extremely capable actor with a lot of range. Plus he’s pretty damn tall and buff. I think he’s my number one pick. He might be a bit too attractive for Lobo but I dont know if sex appeal has ever worked against a project.
