Dream Cast: Voltron

Hollywood is in love with making movies from old shows right now and one of the most popular kids shows ever, Voltron is rumored to be on the way next, so I thought I would help Hollywood out and cast it for them.


Jim Sturgess – Keith


The hero and everyman, I feel like there needs to be people from all over the world if they plan on making this idea work so first up is the always great Jim Sturgess (who was fantastic in Across The Universe) as the team leader Keith.

Ben Barnes – Lance


Ben Barnes is cool, Lance is super cool and kind of a dick, I’m sure Prince Caspian here will do just fine.

Antonio Banderas – Sven


The only original member left from the first Voltron force, he’s kind of the mentor of the group, Antonio Banderas would be awesome in this role and I would take battle advice from Zorro any day.

Brad Williams Henk – Hunk


Hunk is sometimes the fat guy and sometimes the strong guy, let’s get someone who looks like that EXACTLY, Mr.Henk here’s name is even close to it!

Jaden Smith – Pidge


So we need a kid for Pidge, how about the hottest child actor on the market right now, Jaden Smith would be awesome along side Lost’s Brad William Henk.

Romola Garai – Princess Allura


The beautiful Princess Allura needs to be …well.. beautiful, so how about the gorgeous Romola Garai from British stage and film.

Jeremy Irons – Coran


Coran is Allura’s royal advisor, and the wise advice giver for the Voltron force, Jeremy Irons is the most regal man around so he get’s the role.

Glen Close – Haggar


Not only does Glenn Close look eerily like Hagar already, but she plays a great villain, Watch Damages and imagine her as a monster making witch, it works.

Ian Mcshane – Zarkon


The evil King needs to be scary yet regal, Ian McShane is scary as hell, watch Hot Rod!

Jonathan Rhys Meyers – Lotor


Zarkons son is a lot like his father, regal, scary, and powerful, with a little crush on Allura added in Jonathan Rhys Meyers from The Tudors is a perfect Lotor.
