Montag: Ed Harris
Beatty: Christopher Walken
Clarisse: LeeLee Sobieski
Ed Harris? Ew, I dunno, good actor, but kinda too bald. Put him in "The Martian Chronicles," he's more of an astronaut type. How about Matthew Modine? Did you catch him in the remake of "Flowers for Algernon?" He equalled and excelled Cliff Robertson's Oscar-winning performance! Winona Ryder would have been good as Clarisse, but she's getting a bit long in the tooth for 17 and if she keeps smoking like a chimney she'll shrivel up to nothing if she isn't already, but she does need a break. I like her. She is intense enough to play Millie, although I sort of picture Millie as blond and frowzy. I hope they don't get Hillary Swank, she's too annoying for Clarisse and not annoying enough for Millie. You know what, they should get Meg Ryan as Millie. I'm sick of seeing her play all these cute roles. I want to boo her as a real bitch.
This is a daydream I've entertained for years, and my list has evolved with time. At one point I had Harrison Ford as Montag (too old now), at another Gary Oldman. I, too, had Wynona Ryder cast as Clarisse, as well as Drew Barrymore. Christopher Walken as Captain Beatty? Interesting!
Here's my current wish list:
Director: Peter Jackson
Montag: Kevin Spacey
Beatty: Gene Hackman
Clarisse: Natalie Portman
Mildred: Kim Bassinger
Faber: Anthony Hopkins
What about this?
Director: Ridley Scott
Montag: Rutger Hauer ( I know he's probably too old...but still)
Rutger Hauer is such a mythical ageless hero type, why not? And where do you think Michael Weis (The Pretender) would fit in? He's so intense, he keeps you rooting for him 'til the bitter end! And please! please, someone! tell Meg Ryan to get a short haircut with some style to it. She's too old for those cutesy little shaggy do's she's adopted lately (hate to admit it, but she can act).
After discussion with a friend at work we came up with
Mildred ee Wallace
Clarisse:an unknown(perfect huh?)
Director:Jonathan Frakes(open your mind to this one everyone, go watch First Contact)
Montag: David Morse
Clarisse: Jena Malone (played the younger Jodie Foster in CONTACT)
Mildred: Julianne Moore
Beatty: Patrick Stewart
Director: Terry Gilliam
Wow! Some of you are really taking my idea for Beatty and sticking him in Montag's role. Here are my pics, but if you look in movies with the bradbury feel, you will see that I have gone through a million choices.
Director: Speilberg or Ridley Scott
Montag: Jude Law
Beatty: Ed Harris (watch the rock) or Hugo
Faber: 100% Patrick Stewart
Clarisse: Jenna Malone or Anna Paquin
Mildred: Juliet Landau
Director: Terry Gilliam or Stephen Speilberg
Montag: Hugh Jackman or Nicolas Cage
Beatty: Kenneth Brannagh or Jonathan Price
Clarisse: Cristie Ricci or Anna Paquin
Mildred: Drew Barrymore or Charleze Theron
Faber: Morgan Freeman or John Lithgow
Flexible cast choice, due to actor availability. I really want to see what actually makes it onto the screen!!! When it gets done.

I think I would rather have a bunch of talented unknowns play in F451. Having famous actors would give it the overpublicization that could lead to a flop, and I'd hate to see that.
wow. did i kill this thread? I apologize.
No, it's just sleeping. We're all waiting for real news about the film.
While you're waiting, add a post to the similarly-themed ILL.MAN thread I started; it barely got off the ground!
director: howard, spielberg, or maybe david lynch?
montag: michael weiss (the pretender) or maybe george clooney, but kevin spacey would be good also
can't have a movie without gene hackman...
That would be a tough call
I wouldn't mind seeing Roy Dupuis playing Montag (he played Michael in Nikita and was also in the Last Chapter with Michael Ironside). He is an amazing actor.
