Before anyone says it, yes, I realize that there's absolutely no chance of an adaptation being made. This list is just for fun.

This is a "complete" list for a live action cast of the Final Fantasy series (minus FFXI and FFXIV since I never played those) that various GameFAQs users and I came up with. (With help from a few people from other boards and YouTube.) I consider this "complete" since all the main characters for each game are here already. (Minus masked and/or CGI characters.) There are also some minor characters missing, but I decided to stop here anyway because this will get outdated unless I revised it constantly and I don't want to do that.

So this is our Final Fantasy live action cast list for 2007-2012.

(Bear in mind that the list was started nearly five years ago. Some actors/actresses have since gotten too old for their roles. Basically, this list has a set time when it could've been made.)

That said, any feedback, and new or better suggestions would still be appreciated.

Here is a slideshow video of the choices:

And here's the complete list. (Credits for the suggestion are in parenthesis.)

Comments Edit

FF8 Adel

Wow, I gotta congratulate everyone who contributed. These are nothing short of brilliant! Every actor chosen looks almost identical to the character they're paired with. And some were hilarious (Ron Perlman = Kimahri). But seriously, these are great. Also, I think it's universally accepted that Christopher Lee is the real life Garland!

Thanks. I'm glad to have gotten a lot of good contributions too. (And yeah, I thought that Ron Perlman as Kimahri was awesome too.)

I wanted to avoid high-ranking A-listers like Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, who seemed to be in almost every live action cast list that I've seen so far. I think the less high-ranking A-listers, the better. (Unless they're the absolute best choice for that character.) And unfortunately, both Jack Nicholson and David Bowie are too old now to play those roles. =/

BlueHighwind TA

Speaking of Bowie, he wouldn’t make a bad Galenth Dysley:
What do you think? Nice, he would deff fit that role. AaaaaThe Netherealm awaits for you 00:48, December 18, 2011 (UTC)

Wow, David Bowie could just about play any FF character, can't he?

Except Serah. David Bowie can't play Serah.C A T U S E04:21, January 14, 2012 (UTC)

Hmm. good list so far. time to find a bunch of rich, FF-obsessed people to finance this. How about Christian Bale as Vince Valentine in FF7? He could also do Cloud, now that i think about it. Dynamitejoe 21:33, January 16, 2012 (UTC)
