I'm not talking so much about the major parts but the secondary characters considering that something like 95% of the MCU's minor players still originate from the comics... I was thinking about how tough it's going to be for them to cast a new J Jonah Jamison, in particular. JK Simmons owned that part so those are some huge shoes to fill. I've been trying to think of someone who could potentially play the part and I got nothing as far as a serious contender would go. Buuuuuut... on the other hand, I did think of one actor I would love to see play the part even though he's totally wrong for the part -- Wallace Shawn. Yeah, I know he'd probably be better suited for someone like Mole Man or Mojo or M.O.D.O.K. but I can just see him having one of his spit-spewing fits as Jamison and it would be hilarious...

Anyway, what's your dream casting choices for secondary characters, serious or silly?...

Well, if it were 1972, this would be my dream Master of Kung-Fu cast:

Shang-Chi: Bruce Lee
Fu Manchu: Christopher Lee
Sir Dennis Nayland Smith: Alec Guinness
Black Jack Tarr: Ernest Borgnine
Clive Reston: Sean Connery
James Larner: Marlon Brando
Dr. Petrie: David Niven
Leiko Wu: Angela Mao
Fah lo Suee: Tsai Chin

But, ya know. Not 1972.

I'll give this some thought and be back a little later.

They should just say "Screw it" and cast Simmons again. His portrayal of Jameson is the first time I've ever liked that repulsive fartknocker. They shouldn't just throw that away.

Saw a commercial earlier today that made me think Eric Braeden (Victor Newman on The Young and The Restless) would make a great Jameson but he's already 74, probably a bit too old for the part now...

I would also accept Bruce Campbell as Jameson.

Oh, and Chow Yun-Fat as the real leader of the 10 Rings.
