So the question is simple.

Please do not name actors and actresses who are already belong to the world of the movies.

The focus is not only on main characters, and you can name more favourites as well.

As for me, I would be happy to see Juliette Binoche, Rooney Mara, Olga Kurylenko, Tom Hiddleston, Theo James, and Alex Pettyfer in the Alien movies to come.

Who are your favourites?

Rooney Mara:

Olga Kurylenko:

Tom Hiddleston:

Theo James:

Alex Pettyfer:

Something Real

ATI - I would greatly enjoy seeing Sam Worthington in an Alien film! He is such a handsome and excellent actor! :)


PraetorianMember3378 XPJul-28-2017 5:18 PM

Something Real - I think your dream won't come true since he joined Cameron's blue universe. :) But there will be at least four new Avatar movies, so no problemo. :)

ATI - Oh, I know, my friend. While I do not mind seeing Mr. Worthington as a bear-chested, blue giant, I would very much enjoy seeing him battling against alien nightmares in Colonial Marine armor! A girl can have dreams. ;)

Aiden Gillen as a counterpart to Fassbender 


Thomas Jane as a downcast protagonist 


Morena Baccarin just because Im a huge Firefly fan.



Katee Sackhoff as a female lead

Oh man, one of my favorite past times is imagining my favorite/preferred actors/actresses in an Alien movie! My current list mostly comes from my favorite shows and movies, but here it is: 

Daisy Ridley

Peter Capaldi

Jared Padalecki

Jennifer Lawrence

I can't really think of anyone else at the moemnt... I don't really pay much attention to actors to be hoenst! I know lots of names and who I like or not if they are brought up, but I don't really think of them outside of when watching the films they are in, you know? 

So, I'm not totally sure how these actors would be in Ridley's next installment [although someone to truly rival Fassbender would be nice, as some have mentioned here, specifically IRaptus :) would be nice,] but my wish came true when Franco (sort of) was in Covenant, so I would LOVE to see any of the people I mentioned star or have a supporting role in a future Alien film!

Not a map, an invitation

Ridley Scott did say 6 more Alien Movies... if thats even just 3 more before we get to Alien and the Space Jockey... going by the Current Trend... Movie to Movie...

Then this has to be my pick for the Space Jockey ;)

Laura Prepon


OvomorphMember69 XPJul-28-2017 6:55 PM

Melanie Laurent


OvomorphMember69 XPJul-28-2017 6:59 PM

He might make an interesting robot


DeaconMember10416 XPJul-28-2017 7:05 PM

Yes i definitely can see Ridley Scott go this route.

I think he will be just the Perfect Size by the time we do 2-3 more Sequels....  Taking account the Normality of Space Jockey/Engineer Size reduction per Movie.

This is how he may look as the Space Jockey

Only if David 8 Shrinks per movie like the Engineers ;)

New crew of the Nostromo


DeaconMember10416 XPJul-28-2017 7:31 PM

Being Serious though i agree Peter Capaldi could make a Good Corporate Type Character.

Laura Prepon looks a bit Robotic she would do for a Female Synthetic.

Jeremy Sheffield i think could play a really Good Android, he is very good at playing the Emotionless yet evil kind of Character.

Maybe if they went the whole Alien 5 route.. i did mention this before... but Ronda Rousey does look very similar to Carrie Henn both as a Child and as a Adult

I would even say RR looks more like a Grown up Newt than Carrie Henn does LOL as Carrie has lost that mark under her Eye.

Hey if RS/FOX want to pass the Torch onto Newt as the Next Xenomorph Kicking Heroine... well Rhonda fits that role.. but then she is a unknown as far as Acting as she has not had much of a career but then RS is known to give people Big Breaks ;)

BigDave I have no preference on actors as long as they do a good job. As far as your post regarding size, it could be a great idea to use smaller folks or kids as Sir Scott did in Alien and was done in the Star Trek reboot.

I've been hashing out my own Alien story and these two come to mind as characters:

Dr. Curt Connors

ChestbursterMember661 XPJul-28-2017 9:10 PM

No A list, meaning Academy Award winning or nominee or Golden Globe winning or nominee, actor or actress is going to touch this franchise with a ten foot pole right now. Sorry to be blunt, I don't even think if Fassbender had not been in Prometheus before Covenant that he would even do it now. Yes Bichir has been nominated for an Academy Award and Fassbender multiple times and Franco, he really isn't even in the movie, but nobody else in Covenant is really a big name. Crudup, Waterston and McBride I'm sure most people have heard that know movies but I'm just saying not big names to the general public. They would have to get a cast for any future Alien movie, unless they go the Ripley route, similar to Covenant but minus the couple bigger names except Fassbender and returning cast members like Waterston and McBride if they even came back. Because this franchise isn't what it once was. I know I am missing the point of this topic but I'm just saying alot of things need to change, and maybe are, to get this franchise back to where it was. Hire a really great film director, sorry Ridley you just don't got it anymore, and great writers and you will get an A list cast. But does any really great film director even want a gig like this now with this franchise the way it is? Maybe it's just better for it to end?

Dr. Curt Connors

ChestbursterMember661 XPJul-28-2017 9:15 PM

And yeah some of the people mentioned in these comments would do it for sure but not the Rooney Mara's and Daisy Ridley's, she's pretty tied up at the moment, of the world would.


PraetorianMember3378 XPJul-28-2017 10:05 PM

IRaptus - Awesome list! Tom Jane is my big fav, but he joined the Predator Universe, so...

cuponator3000 - Daisy Ridley is owned by the Star Wars Universe, that can be a problem...

JonesRules - Melanie Laurent is beautiful...

Liscary - Donald Glover? I like him but he flew into the Star Wars Han Solo movie...




PraetorianModerator2414 XPJul-28-2017 10:46 PM

Thanks Ati, has Tom Jane been confirmed to be in The Predator yet??!! God i hope so, great actor! 


OvomorphMember66 XPJul-28-2017 11:00 PM

Jérémie Renier

Charlotte Rampling

Charlotte Gainsbourg

Gael Garcia Bernal

Laurent Lafitte


OvomorphMember12 XPJul-29-2017 12:17 AM

Ati- I'd ask what you mean by "flew into" but I haven't seen that movie so please, no spoilers!


PraetorianMember3378 XPJul-29-2017 12:27 AM

Liscary - The Han Solo movie will be released next year in May, Glover will play the young Lando Calrissian who owned the Millenium Falcon, that's why I wrote that he flew into...


PraetorianMember3378 XPJul-29-2017 12:37 AM

Rooney Mara is brilliant in the David Fincher movie 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' (2011):


PraetorianMember3378 XPJul-29-2017 12:59 AM

IRaptus - Yes, it is confirmed, you can find info about it here on the site, just look at the Predator news section!


PraetorianModerator2414 XPJul-29-2017 1:25 AM

Though my heart skipped a beat at first thinking you meant Jeremy Renner lol.
