Nicholas Cage, Christian Bale, Roy Disney
Hey everyone, I just finished the book "Remembering Walt", and it got me thinking about a bio-pic movie of Walt's life, and I want to know who you think should play the man himself - Walt Disney.
I think this was brought up before and Edward Norton was mentioned. I personally think he would make a good choice!

As a young Walt ,Ed Norton. As a older Walt..maybe Sam Neil or Kevin Costner or Dennis Hopper.

I could totally see that. He's got the geeky skinny thing going on. He could even do older Walt I think with the right wardrobe and makeup. Problem is, he's a lot shorter than Walt was isn't he?Originally Posted by nicks10
I think Matthew Perry of Friends fame would be great at it too.

I think Ed Norton would be a good pick and I don't think height would be that big of an issue. They can do all sorts of tricks to make people look taller or shorter (see: The Lord of the Rings trilogy).
I think Arnold Schwartznager would be great. Ok not really but I could see Tom Hanks playing an older Walt. I also like the idea of Edward Norton.

I think David Strathairn would be a great older Walt Disney.
Now that I saw Ed Norton mentioned here, I think that he would make a very good choice for Walt Disney with the ability to cover a wide age range.
