    Who would play Walt in a Disney Bio-Pic?

    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!

    I agree nick10, Ed Norton would make a great Walt Disney.

    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?

    I think Matthew Perry of Friends fame would be great at it too.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    George Clooney, not for any other reason other then I just want to look at George Clooney, I guess it would be sort of combining the best of both worlds....Disney and Clooney
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    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.

    Why not? He's already playing in every other Disney movie: The Lone Ranger, Pirates 4 and Alice in Wonderland!
