  1. Peter Sarsgaard

  2. I think Leonard DiCaprio could do justice to this part.

  3. Marnie says:

    Keanu Reeves!!!

  4. adrienne says:

    Woody Harrelson

  5. Debbie says:

    Kevin Costner. He has presence, grace and humility written all over him. He is also about the same age and looks a lot like Mr. Farlow.

  6. Marianne says:

    Tom Selleck or John O’Hurley

  7. angie says:

    Bill Paxton. That picture looks just like Bill in Tombstone

  8. Doris Temme says:

    Timothy Olyphant

  9. Jenna says:

    A friend and I discussed this earlier… we think that Robert Downey Jr might be good for this role. Why? He is an amazing actor and can put all of him into the role, therefore, adding the feeling that “hey. this is real. i feel like I know this person.”

  10. Jorge Gonzalez says:

    I say Emilio Estevez.first I think they look alike in a way.Second I dont know how to explain why,but in the other hand Estevez has been workin as a director,as well.I think Emilio and Val,work as actors and directors in this project,I can assure it will be a tremendous surprise for the public.

  11. Karisma Wintak says:

    Billy Zane

  12. Kip says:

    I agree with the Billy Zane vote, here we are talking about someone on the front lines taking (bullets) verbal/mental assaults head on and being able to sustain order of character and poise in the midst of it all. This will be a challenging role for whomever gets it. I would even suggest Robert DeNiro for the role as this will require a robust approach packed with intellect and dignity to the character.

    Here we are talking about individuals that worked with Eddy who combatted sin head-on within themselves and rose to the occasion to combat it in others. Not easy shoes to fill by any means. The actors in this film are going to have that to consider these attributes if they are to bring an iota of authenticity to this production. (in my opinion)

  13. Micehlle says:

    I think Andrew MacNaughton would be perfect.

  14. Jan says:

    Matthew Macfadyen with his quiet strength would suit this or perhaps another character

  15. MadMooby says:

    Bill Paxton looks like him, and is about the right age…….

  16. jan says:

    Matthew Broderick

  17. Doris Temme says:

    Billy Zane is also an excellent suggestion!

  18. Wendy Ciarci says:

    Hard. A handsome man with intelligence and insight. Johnny Dep or Hank Azaria. Bill Paxon is a good choice too. Denis Quaid could play it and look the right age as well.

  19. Tina says:

    Robert Sean Leonard would be good in this

  20. Christine Schumy says:

    absolutely >>> KEANU REEVES <<<

  21. Rai Yules says:

    Take a look on his face! It must be Kevin Costner.

  22. Marnie says:

    Thanks Christine for your faith (& vote) in Keanu Reeves! I think he would be PERFECT and I think he definitely would be interested in the movie. Keanu doesn’t have to be the main character . .. he does alot of indies and supports good films/work. Give him a call, Val!!!

  23. Cassandra says:

    Cary Elwes, fine actor and could look the part too!

  24. Clopin says:

    Sam Neill

  25. Lynne says:

    Brendan Fraser or Matthew Broadrick (sp?) the one married to Sarah Jessica Parker….

  26. Teresa Tromp says:

    Skeet Ulrich played such a heart-warming, sensitive part in Ordinary Days, and he looks a lot like Alfred Farlow

  27. Walterhorton says:

    I see Val Kilmer

  28. Christopher Peckham says:

    My Alfred Farlow readings would go to :
    Dash Mihok and
    Timothy Olyphant

  29. Michelle says:

    Leonardo Dicaprio

  30. Kim says:

    Sorry folks but this part has to belong to Keanu Reeves devilishly goodlooking and he can act what more could you want, eye candy with a brain

  31. Shirley Schoenherr Carey says:

    Timothy Olyphant or Kevin Costner.

  32. Darren says:

    Guy Pearce – hansom, similar appearance, wholesome nature and can do American accents

  33. brwneyedtina says:

    Pleeeease cast Pierce Brosnan in this role….talk about perfection!

  34. heather dale says:

    besides the resemblence in the photo, the description screams Bill Paxton to me…if he’s not too busy, you should poke him on the shoulder and tell him he’s your guy ; )

  35. Karen Frazier says:

    Titus Welliver

  36. Christina says:

    Bill Paxton
    Mark Ruffalo
    David Jones (an up and coming actor…was in the Lifetime movie called Fatal Trust and by far the least expensive choice)

    Hope this helps Val :)

  37. I think Alfred Farlow should be played by
    Matthew McConnaghy

  38. Bradley Pettit says:

    If Val has a relative that looks like him and can act, I think he would be a good choice for this character. Something about the guy’s bone structure reminds me of Val.

  39. Bradley Pettit says:

    Or Kevin Costner. He’s one of the most under-utilized, talented actors in Hollywood today.

  40. pablo says:

    Paul James Rogic

  41. Joe Fox says:

    How about Matt Broderick?

    (Not sure about the site, but it’s a good photo and shows he’s capable of more than BUELER)

  42. Chelle says:

    Tony Goldwyn

  43. Kat says:

    Kurt Russell or George Clooney. Can’t get much more handsome and charming than those guys.

  44. Valerie says:

    My vote here is for Jason Lee.

  45. Christina Beisel says:

    Kurt Russell seems fitting. Maybe its also because I have always felt that Kurt and Val had great acting chemistry like paul newman and robert redford and how I would love to see them in another movie together.

  46. Doris Temme says:

    Matthew Perry

  47. Gennifer says:

    Bill Paxton
