Default Who would you like to see in the cast of Avatar 2?

Obviously there will be some new people on the cast, so who would you like to be on it?

I've always found Matt Damon to be a good serious actor, capable of conveying realistic emotions and motives. I mean look at him as Jason Bourne or even him in the Adjustment Bureau (sure the plot was odd, but he did some great acting). I'd love to see him as a soldier, a real soldier (no more of this "kill them all" mentality of the first movie, but a soldier who actually thinks about what he is doing). Also I heard FOX wanted him for the role of Jake in the original film (which I think he would have done a fine job of).

However if the next movie is determined to have another Quartich type character, why not go with the current king of action, Jason Statham. Although he has played a more realistic character in Snatch, he has made his name with the Crank and Transporter series as an over the top action star. With an actor like him, you can have dirty smarter tactics. I picture him being part of an elite hit squad sent to destabilize the Na'vi (just so long as the rest of the Expendables cast doesn't get to come along).

Angelina Jolie has been in her fair share of action movies, from Tomb Raider to Salt. She'd make a good avatar, especially if soldiers are avatars this time instead of scientists. Or maybe she could be a Na'vi, but I don't see her being a particularly good one. Also who wouldn't mind an avatar with big... erm... lips, yes that's what I meant to say, lips.

Summer Glau. Enough said.

I agree with Matt Damon, and that's about it for that list. Damon could actually work with this.

As a serious thought for who might suit well in an Avatar-type film (because we really have no idea what Avatar 2 will be about, or what kind of characters are involved), Ed Harris could fit, just because of the way he can portray almost any type of character that possesses any spot of wisdom or intelligence, whether he be a hero or a villain.

I would like to see more of Alicia Vela Bailey in the role of the female leader of the Ikran clan of the Eastern Sea.

I don't want anyone too famous. Otherwise it becomes 'oh look, it's Celebrity X in that role.' Messes with my immersion. Sigourney Weaver I was OK with because she seems to belong in that kind of context, but I don't want to see a Matt Damon or someone like that.

I wouldn't call Summer Glau famous... except among nerds (so I totally think she is famous myself). On retrospect Jason Statham seems like the only one who would fit if he was cast as an elite forces operative sent to disrupt the Na'vi. Angelina is just to famous for her own good. I think Matt Damon would be ok though.
