    Who should play Walt Disney?

    In the spirit of Saving Mr. Banks recently filming at Disneyland........what other actors (besides Tom Hanks) do you think would do Walt Disney justice (looks and acting wise) if a film based on his life were ever made?

    What about his wife, Lillian......or his brother, Roy?

    My picks for 20/30-something Walt:



    Shia LeBeouf:



    Joseph Gordon-Levitt:



    My pick for 40+-something Walt......

    James Franco:

    Not. And I repeat NOT Shia Lebouf. But JGL and James Franco would be good.

    I could care a little about. My main concern for films that include WD is who writes, directs and produces it. I want quality to be used when portraying a national hero.

    I'd like to see Kate Upton play Lillian Disney. I'd be at Disneyland all day watching her film.

    For a young Walt, I think Ryan Gosling would be good.
    Fear of the unknown.

    They are afraid of new ideas.

    They are loaded with prejudices, not based upon any reality, but based onÖ if something is new, I reject it immediately because itís frightening to me. What they do instead is just stay with the familiar.
    You know, to me, the most beautiful things in all the universe, are the most mysterious.

    Nobody. The Walt Bio-pic should be a full length animation using the best of modern technology. Animation, as it is today, has been built on the shoulders of Walt Disney Studios. So many of the ground breaking innovations were done by him, sound, color, multiplane camera, etc. It would only be fitting and a great tribute to use the medium that he reinvented.
    As for his voice, I think Jeff Bridges has the right timbre for the role. Shia can do the vocal work for Lady", Walt's poodle.
    Skiddley Whiffers is a cruel mistress; cold and unforgiving.

    Looking at the above stills - I think that Joseph Gordon-Levitt looks a lot like Walt when he was in his 20s and 30s - minus the mustache. James Franco has very similar eyes to Walt in his later years - Happy smiling eyes. Looking in them there was always something magic going on inside ---

    All these guys would be candidates to play Walt from the late 1910's to the 1930's. In the terms of Saving Mr. Banks I think Tom Hanks is best to play the Walt of the 1960's.
