Just Spitballing Here, But These 30 Actors Could Go the Distance in Disney's Live-Action Hercules
If there is one thing a Disney musical film is known for, it's for having the perfect voice cast for their iconic songs. That's why it's nearly impossible for fans to understand when the studio drops another live-action adaptation of our classic favourites — why mess with perfection? But when it came to the reveal that a live-action Hercules was in the works, the world stood still for a moment. A live-action production of a film that has arguably one of the absolute best Disney soundtracks to date? A live-action adaptation of a film that gave us thee Muses? It's foolish, ambitious, and a challenge that Disney thinks they're up for. I can respect that.
Most projects can be made or undone by the people behind the scenes, but this particular production hinges on one pinnacle component: the cast. Specifically, it's all about the Muses, but I'm an avid enough fan to include the rest of the cast in this as well. So, in hopes to aid Disney on their mission of bringing the magic of Hercules to life — in which they've already tapped Marvel's Dave Callaham to write the script with Avengers directors Joe and Anthony Russo to produce — I've compiled a list of some of the actors I think could truly go the distance.
