Vote on Who Should Play Mitch Rapp

Vote On Vince Flynn’s Consent to Kill Lead

All New Mitch Rapp Movie Update – June 2011!

Okay, people.  We know you’re looking forward to the movie version of Vince Flynn’s novel Consent to Kill.  We also know that there are strong feelings and much anticipation about who should play lead character and major badass Mitch Rapp.

So we’re going to give you, the fans, the chance to vote for the best actor for the role.

Movie Rewind wants to know who you think should play Rapp.  First, pick your favorite three choices.  The three actors with the most votes will then make the finals and everyone picks the Big One, the one actor who more fans want to see play Mitch Rapp than any other.

And who knows?   Maybe Vince himself will stop by.  We already know studio types subscribe to our feed because, well, we can see them.

Hey, maybe Eric Bana’s next door neighbor is a faithful reader.   You just never know.

So get to clicking, campaign for your favorite, get your friends and fellow fans over here to do the same and if you choose “other” tell us your choice in a comment.  I can tell you that I will turn down the role if it’s offered to me, so do not feel pressure to write me in (though I am an obvious choice).  I don’t know about George, he could probably kick some Mitch Rapp butt.

[poll id=”25″]

Okay, fine, I put in the last one just for myself.  Be thankful that I didn’t use it as an excuse to post another picture of RDJ.  So come on now, LET’S VOTE!

The minute I saw him, it popped in my head that I was looking at "Mitch Rapp"! Boy, did that shock me. Then I found out he was also a motivational speaker AND an actor! Check him out. Read Less

    Why not consider Karl Urban of Pathfinder, RED, etc? Good- but tough-looking, an element of nastiness in his attitude, yet a sense of right & wrong (noticed more of it after viewing his performance in RED) Sassybabs

    Mark Wahlberg is the best choice for Mitch Rapp, a close second would be James Caviezel.

    In my opinion, Mark Wahlberg would be the best decision (Gerard Butler in a close 2nd) to play the character Mitch Rapp. Both actors demonstrate the swagger, assertiveness, and the cool headed state of mind that this character needs.

    When I read about Mitch Rapp, I envision Joseph Fiennes for some reason. I think he'd make a good Mitch Rapp, but possibly not intimidating enough?

Eric Bana could look the part, he has played a Delta before (Black Hawk Down) and didn't do a bad job, so he is in the running, but I have another suggestion. I know I will be jeered for this suggestion, but give it a thought first. Ashton Kutcher. His nose is large enough and eyes are dark enough that he could portray a middle easterner. He has the lean, muscular build that Rapp should have. He has a distinctly American accent (which Butler sadly cannot bring). He is in his early 30's, which would translate well for a franchise and the story line. He has to be dying to do more serious roles and I was impressed with him in "The Guardian" so I think he might just be able to do it. Any thoughts? Read Less

Liam Neason is a great actor, and his role in Taken was amazing. But not for Mitch Rapp. It think he's a little too old and lacts the rugged quality of Rapp. And Jona Cena, please give me a break. His acting is horrible and looks exactly like what he is.....a wrestler. Not a counterterrorism operative. The charcter needs to be human. Someone that can pass for middle eastern, someone with supurb acting skills with dark features. I would prefer to see someone thats not an extremely well known actor. Alex Oloughlin is a good choice. I think Jim Caviezel is also a good choice as his acting in movies such as The Counte of Monte Cristo and Deja Vu were phenomenal. Gerald Butler could also fit the description and has impressed me with his acting abilities. As long as he can pull off an American accent. But no Brad Pitt, or Colin Ferrell, or George Clooney. Let it be someone who is less known to really capture Mitch Rapp the character and not the actor playing a role. Read Less

Either of them would be terrific! Some of the others that you have listed begs the question: are you kidding? maybe Hugh Jackman but the others don't come anywhere near Mitch. Geeze, what the hell were you all thinking with your suggestions--BAD, BAD, BAD. Brad Pitt, ugh! Come on guys, put on your thinking caps, look at some actors, maybe bit players, but someone that's good but hasn't gotten a chance yet to shine. Some of the names mentioned don''t fit our guy, you all must know that. And if the wrong actor is used it could kill the picture! The Shooter was mentioned in credits for director/writer, if that's so, watch it again and see who plays Bobby Lee and how well a job was done on that. Anyway, just one fan's opinion. Read Less

His role in Taken was amazing and portrayed a man who has what it takes to be Mitch Rapp. None of the listed actors (most are over hyped, mainstream to get attention. Pitt, Farrell, Jackman, Clooney and Jr.) have what it takes to pull off the intricacies that come with the Mitch Rapp character. Liam is Mitch Rapp in ever aspect. Any one who is a fan of the Mitch Rapp series and has seen Taken knows that there is only one person good enough for this role. Now I would like to take this time and say Mr. Flynn has made a huge mistake going to Hollywood with what I call best CIA/Terrorism series ever. He should have approached cable channels such as Showtime, HBO , Cinemax, or others as the whole series starting from day one could be portrayed the way it is in the book. Hollywood is going to destroy this story to no end. Read Less
