Actors to portray the boys of south park

Postby Thrawny » Thu Nov 22, 2007 11:02 pm

I would love to see them make another movie. But add another twist, make it a real movie instead of a cartoon. What actors would portray the boys and adults most accuratly?

Stan:
Kyle:
Cartman:
Kenny:
Butters:
Randy:
Garrison:

That'd be...rather tricky :lol: They really couldn't find the eight/nine year olds to do and say the stuff the boys do, and if they used midget actors, it wouldn't be quite the same either.

If they had the characters aged up to teens for a movie, then it'd be QUITE the change. A rather drastic one.

What would be funny, IMO, in terms of live-action SP would be a bit with the VAs or staffers 'playing out' the characters (in rather cheap getups) or random actors that don't look much like the characters dressed all oddly and acting out a scene. As some sort of live-action hallucination/dream sequence or something.

If we're going with the 'older SP boys' angle, it'll be tricky anyway to find actors who could fill the parts. Let's see...DEFINITELY no Frankie Muniz @_@

Of course, we could have total fun with this and just try to fill any actor in there, too :P

Hehehe...I've always had fun imagining the BBS-ers doing a stage interpretation of South Park: BLU...

I could pass off as Stan, I guess...I'm short, I've got the shaggy black hair...I have a slightly similar voice at times...

...I do have that Kyle costume of mine, too...

I'm still laughing, myself!

All joking aside...
Stan:Trey Parker
Kyle:Matt Stone
Cartman:Jack Black
Kenny:George Carlin(Just for his sense of humor since his face won't be seen for the most part)
Butters:Robin Williams
Randy:Billy Bob Thornton
Garrison:John Travolta in Drag.

These are all what I could picture to play each character.

That'd work. I'm liking the Jack Black as Cartman idea myself. After seeing School of Rock and...what was it...Nacho Libre (?), I think he could play that role pretty well.

Inspiration! I think I'll go make a game thread- match a user to what South Park character they would best act as...

dude that's totally work...well, I'm not feeling it with Robin Willaims as Butters. And (don't get me wrong, Billy Bob is rad) Billy Bob Thorton always plays the same charactor (but it is a good charactor...) he's always kinda a d*ck, I don't think he could play Randy. BUT I LUUUUV JACK BLACK AS CARTMAN!!!

These days that would probably happen. It's getting kinda old. Ha

But in all seriousness, I've always wanted to see a live version of the show but didn't know how it would work.

Hard question. I kept thinking right away of the kids from the 1994 The Little Rascals movie. Since they were all so very adorable and I could see a few of them being in a South Park kid role. But sadly, that they are all in there twenties now. :(

I don't know, I see Trey as Randy and Matt as Gerald-you know? Playing their own dad's type thing, since they're about the right age now.

I don't know how they would do the kids correctly though.

Teenagers is a good idea. I'm thinking Michael Cera as Butters?

LOL WIN.

Well like Spill.com said on the review for the movie Superbad, Jonah Hill should be Cartman. XD I mean in Superbad, his role was a foulmouthed fatass. He's perfect. *killed*
