Who do you think would be the perfect actress for Aeon Flux?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread

Well I think it would no doubt be Famke Janssen. This beautiful and sexy woman looks exactly like Aeon plus she is a fantastic actress.

No other woman looks like Aeon as much as her. :-)

From my personal point of view there is only one actress as far as I know that would do a perfect job, or perhaps that is AEON FLUX and her name is:

Michelle Forbes (movie Kalifornia with David Duchovny)

She is from my point of view the actress for AEON FLUX... Her voice, looks and her expression (at least from the movie Kalifornia) makes her the best choice.


-- Peter Fisla (pfisla@home.com), January 21, 2001.

Forgot to add, take a look at this picture and then compare the visual features with Aeon...



-- Peter Fisla (pfisla@home.com), January 21, 2001.

uh didn't we cover this? :o), Forbes does not look at aeon at all. her skin tone her eyes her hair, nothing like aeon.

-- Lady Morgan (AeonFluxFan1@aol.com), January 21, 2001.

Please use the existing threads for this, this has been covered more than twice.

-- William (stateofflux@yahoo.com), January 22, 2001.

I think the best would be Catherin Zeta-Jones. Perfect skin tone and a smooth voice. Now, how would we do the crazy hair?

-- FireWyrm-Zero (FireWyrmZero@variousanimesite.every1.net), January 22, 2001.

I had a comparison shot of Aeon and Catherine, before DS went down. She's a good match. And as seen in "entrapment" she can do some acrobatic moves when needed.

-- Chaos Knight (chaosknight@charterr.net), January 22, 2001.

famke janssen. i agree with travis.

-- joseph (jmaniwan@vt.edu), January 28, 2001.

My vote, which regrettably falls into the realm of the ludicrously impossible, is for Sigourney Weaver about ten years ago, with David Bowie cir. The Hunger (importantly, *before* he starts aging) as Trevor.

-- Kiru (kirub@earthlink.net), February 12, 2001.

i have always been for david bowie as trevor, but to bad he is not 20 years younger no? I am sorry but i don't mem sigourney weaver being in the hunger????????

-- Lady Morgan (AeonFluxFan1@aol.com), February 12, 2001.

I always thought Demi Moore looked like her. And Rutger Oelsen Hauer for trevor. He is the guy who played the blond replicant in Balade Runner.

-- iaj (maxim@charter.net), March 05, 2001.

Rutger haurer no. Although a very cool actor. He just isn't Trevor. Trevor needs to be ooohhh.... Some kind of wonderful. Jimmy Crickets, this is hard people just don't look a good as drawing of people. Lets just demand they do the who thing with puppets, they could market it as "The Dark Cystal" meets the enlightened mind.

-- (nadar@BigPoppaPump.zzn.com), March 06, 2001.

This old topic may actually soon become hot again. I can't say much more right now, but stick around.

My choice, now as ever-- Famke Janssen. No one else is even close. I've seen her in person (at the MTV movie awards a few years ago), and she is Aeon in the flesh. I just hope the folks at Paramount agree.

For Trevor... I'm wondering what Jeremy Northam would look like with short blond hair.

This may be happening, finally. Thanks everyone, for hanging on.

-- Peter Chung (pkchung@attglobal.net), March 25, 2001.

I must say that I agree. If anyone still has any doubt...

just click here.

She's already Aeon-and-a-half. Why even bother to groom her for the role?

-- Matthew Rebholz (matrebholz@yahoo.com), March 25, 2001.

I wonder if Famke Jansen, when at the MTV music awards that day, turned and saw the plan on the directors face? More than the usual admiring glance of a man. A swirling notion, creating a role for her that may be her true calling before the camera. 'Aeon in the flesh'. What a lucky girl you are Famke.

-- Barb e. (Suesuesbeo@aol.com), March 25, 2001.

I was going to say, she has my vote but that does'nt really matter, let's hope she has the vote of the people that decide. But, in a way, as we like Aeon so much (and are starting to know a little about her) perhaps that we think she would be good, does matter?

-- William (stateofflux@yahoo.com), March 25, 2001.

BTW: Thank You Peter!!!Thanks for showing us regard and informing us soooo early. Without you we'd be totally in the dark as to our obsession, and now we really have something to look forward to, don't we:) Keeping the faith and the fires burning, I'm sure all of us feel the same, (ecstatic)!

-- Barb e. (Suesuesbeo@aol.com), March 25, 2001.

Yes, thanks for the inside information!

I think Julian Sands would make a good Trevor; not only is he extremely close in voice and appearance (IMHO), but he's a "genre film" regular, and knows how to ham it up. Jeremy Northam strikes me as too... normal, somehow. Any word on who's directing this?

-- Inukko (nadisrec@worldnet.att.net), March 26, 2001.

After doing some visual research into Jeremy Northam, I have to say he'd fit somehow. He does seem a bit cute for the role... I always saw Trevor as the "unconventionally attractive" sort. Still, good looks never hurt, I suppose. I think he'd do well.

-- Matthew Rebholz (matrebholz@yahoo.com), March 26, 2001.

Uh oh. Look, I'm just replying to Travis' post. And I only mentioned Northam because I recently saw The Winslow Boy, in which he makes quite an impression as the egotistical lawyer. An excellent film by the way, directed by David Mamet, based on Terence Rattigan's play. I'm not slighting John Lee, who would, as a matter of fact, do quite well, himself. Ahem. That said, a dream choice might have been Peter O'Toole, circa The Ruling Class. Megalomania never looked so good. All right, I'll stop now.

-- Peter Chung (pkchung@attglobal.net), March 26, 2001.

Peter, I just am enthralled this even got a shot at being made. If Jeremy Northam is busy I'd just love John Lee in the role. Tie him down and dye his hair for heaven sakes!

-- Barb e. (Suesuesbeo@aol.com), March 28, 2001.

From what I have heard about the movie I am starting to worry.

To start if the are only considering it because they believe they can make some money from it (if the statement about the success of Tomb Raider being an indicator of it's realisation is true). Then if it is all about making money you could expect the studio to develop it as an action/special effects based movie. With little involvement from Peter or the original creative team the only thing that they would take from the original animated series is the name and a bit of the style (if we are lucky). Maybe I am being overly pessimistic?

The reason the series was cut was MTV did'nt believe it fitted in with whatever they were trying to achieve, I only hope they are doing a back-flip on this decision (to cancel it) and this movie and thinking ushers in a whole new era where we see more Aeon (that was the optimism).

-- William (stateoflux@yahoo.com), March 28, 2001.

I'm not sure which is worse, a bad Aeon movie, or no movie at all. I think I'd be perfectly happy letting Flux exist as it is, and yet, even a "bad" film remake might increase interest in the show. I guess I don't have hopes in either direction.

-- Mat Rebholz (matrebholz@earthlink.net), March 29, 2001.

Don't get down on this movie, just because it won't match the fantasy. If this film gets made it will be quite possibly the great story ever told. I think that I might if I where a casting director, try to get some unknown woman to play Aeon, mostly so you could get someone with and incredible physicality, like a dancer, or a girl who's double jointed. All the while I would cast Max Kellerman of HBO's friday night fights as Trevor. If you watch boxing you might see what I mean, give him blonde hair, shave the gotee, and make him look a few years older. If he can act or not is yet another question.

-- (hammerofthehorse@BigPoppaPump.zzn.com), March 29, 2001.

Marge Simpson is perfect for the part.

-- al from cal (allenrb@ix.netcom.com), April 02, 2001.

I can't wait for this movie; I am so excited at the prospect and I hope it gets made!...Aeon Flux in any shape or form is Aeon Flux: current again. What a kick to see her in the movies! Besides; the series will be sure to get some of the spotlight, and this may lead to its revival. Hoping, hoping, hoping.

-- Barb e (Suesuesbeo@aol.com), April 02, 2001.

Barb E. is right, lets all cross our fingers, and our toes. This is the real light at the end of the tunnel. We stayed with a show that had no production, and now the fanboys, and fangirls are to be rewarded with a movie. Bless us the cult fans. The sad and obsessed. Now all we need is to get in the cast somehow.

-- (hammerofthehorse@BigPoppaPump.zzn.com), April 02, 2001.

Now if only some life could be put back into "NoWhere Man".

-- (hammeroftehhorse@BigPoppaPump.zzn.com), April 02, 2001.

So, I'm a cult fan? Hah! Well, if this movie plays, heh, maybe I'll go to it in a black trenchcoat! (of which I have a lovely one) and hmm....tall spiked black heels! I would encourage you guys to wear a Trenchoat and as for the heels...hmm; well its not Rocky Horror you know!

-- Barb e. (Suesuesbeo@aol.com), April 02, 2001.

"Hammer" as far as getting into the cast; which 'dead body' are you going to play?

-- Barb e. (Suesuesbeo@aol.com), April 02, 2001.

If people are going to call me hammer, I may just switch back, to the old address. Thats is either a clever jab at my ability to act, or a rather clever observation as to the amount of disposable extras may be in this. Could be like Braveheart, lots of actors can say,"I was in Braveheart!". Then afterwards they are asked, "what did you do?". To that they reply, "I was killed."

-- Not Hammer (hammeroftehhorse@BigPoppaPump.zzn.com), April 03, 2001.

Actually, a friend of mine was over and used my sn to write this, sorry. But you know if Peter does his 'hill of Breens' scene; hey, we could ALL be in the movie!!!

-- Barb e. (Suesuesbeo@aol.com), April 04, 2001.

I'd forgoten about that, it made me laugh so hard I used it as my name for a time. With that scene the rating might make this unavailable to people under 18. :( but wait I'm over 18 :)

How much was you, and how much was your freind?

-- (hammerofthehorse@BigPoppaPump.zzn.com), April 04, 2001.

That whole sentence was my friends idea. It actually is a pretty funny concept, all of us playing dead Breens is my idea. But wait, can't remember any female Breen soldiers. Were there?

-- Barb e. (Suesuesbeo@aol.com), April 05, 2001.

Yes thre was, but only in the first full length episode. I think. She had a "key" if I remember correctly. So there is hope for all of us male and female, black, white, or brown, rich or poor, strong or weak we can all die in the film.

-- (hammerofthehorse@BigPoppaPump.zzn.com), April 05, 2001.

To die for!!!

-- Barb e. (Suesuesbeo@aol.com), April 05, 2001.

Wow your right here to post after I post. super.

-- (hammeroftehhorse@BigPoppaPump.zzn.com), April 05, 2001.

Famke Jansen wasn't a very menacing Jean Grey. Most X-men fanatics I've talked to weren't to impressed. However Hugh Jackman was a perfect Wolverine. Now, who would be the perfect Aeon Flux? Tough one. Perhaps there's a star yet to reach a broader audience. I think Lara Flynn Boyle would be interesting as A.F. I was a admirer of hers long before I saw A.F. There's a thing about Lara's eyebrows which I also sometimes saw in the A.F. series. Ever saw Red Rock West? Lara has played nasty and bitchy women rather convincingly. There's another film in which L.F.B. playes a woman at a office who gradually takes over the top.Liked that one. She's a Emmy-nominated actress. However I haven't seen her lately so she might very well be a wee bit to old for A.F. Though L.F.B. is sneaky in real life as well. Dropping boyfriends frequently. She might not look like Aeon but who does. Angeline Jolie isn't very Lara Croft-like. Roger Moore didn't look like Sean Connery yet was Bond in 7 films. You get my point. Who cares if a actress is spot-on Aeon. As long as it's a dark-haired blue-eyed well-proven actress. Many other young actresses could do the part as well. Neve Campbell? Just kidding. It would be fun seing her as Aeon.

-- (danijel_peek_a_boo242@hotmail.com), May 12, 2001.

Famke Janssen, definitely.

-- Dr. Razzmatazz (boogiebaby37@yahoo.com), September 25, 2001.

Having thought about this some more today, I think my backup choice would be Yancey Butler (of "Witchblade," um, "fame" as of late). I'll be the first to concede she doesn't look nearly as much like Aeon as Janssen does, but she has dark hair, light eyes, and the right skin tone. Her voice is a little closer to Aeon's I think, too. Famke's still my first choice, though.
