Far Cry Live Action Fan Cast

by dragonknite | created - 05 Jan 2015 | updated - 04 Feb 2016 | Public

not a big fan of First person shooters but I think the far Cry games deserve a film series. So bare with me as I try to list the perfect cast.

1. Jake Gyllenhaal

Actor | Nightcrawler

Jacob Benjamin Gyllenhaal was born in Los Angeles, California, to producer/screenwriter Naomi Foner (née Achs) and director Stephen Gyllenhaal. He is the brother of actress Maggie Gyllenhaal, who played his sister in Donnie Darko (2001). His godmother is actress Jamie Lee Curtis. His mother is from...

Jack Carver/ The Jackal Jack Carver is the main character of the first game. He is a former US special forces soldier. He is ends up working as a freelance boat charter which leads him get hired by a reporter who needs to go to an island. It is rumoured that Jack is the Jackal in Far Cry 2. I believe Jake looks very much like the character, having dark hair, similar build and bing american.

2. Morena Baccarin

Actress | Deadpool

Morena Baccarin was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to actress Vera Setta and journalist Fernando Baccarin. Her uncle was actor Ivan Setta. Morena has Italian and Brazilian Portuguese ancestry. She moved to New York at the age of 10, when her father was transferred there. She attended the LaGuardia...

Valerie Constantine The reporter who hires Jack wanted to investigate the island which was once occupied by the Japanese during WWII. I would have Morena Baccarin for Val as they are both beautiful american brunnes.

3. Hugh Jackman

Actor | Les Misérables

Hugh Michael Jackman is an Australian actor, singer, multi-instrumentalist, dancer and producer. Jackman has won international recognition for his roles in major films, notably as superhero, period, and romance characters. He is best known for his long-running role as Wolverine in the X-Men film ...

Richard Crowe Crowe is a mercenary hired to by DR Kreiger to guard the island from outsiders. Judging by his rugged muscularity, I'd definitely have Hugh Jackman for this role.

4. Terrence Howard

Actor | Hustle & Flow

Terrence Howard was born in Chicago, Illinois, to Anita Jeanine Williams (née Hawkins) and Tyrone Howard. He was raised in Cleveland, Ohio. His love for acting came naturally, through summers spent with his great-grandmother, New York stage actress Minnie Gentry. He later began his acting career ...

Harland Doyle I'm a bit confused whether Doyle is Black or White because the far cry wiki shows two photos of this guy. I would assume he is supposed to be Black but his skin is kinda fair. I think Howard looks very much like the character.

5. Udo Kier

Actor | Downsizing

Udo Kier was born October 14, 1944 in Cologne, Germany, during World War II. His entrance was just as dramatic as some of his roles. On the evening of his birth Udo's mother requested extra time with her new baby. The nurses had gathered all of the other babies and returned them to the nursery when...

Dr. Kreiger Udo Kier was born in Germany so I would expect him to be accurate for the stereotypical German scientist Kreiger.

6. Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje

Actor | Lost

Born and raised in London, England, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje began his career as a model in Milan. He graduated with a masters degree in Law from London's prestigious Kings College, before moving to Los Angeles to make the transition to acting. Fluent in several languages, including English, ...

Reuben Oluwagembi Adewale is a British Nigerian actor. I feel because of his heritage he should play as Reuben who is also Nigerian. His accent will also be realistic.

7. Barkhad Abdirahman

Actor | Captain Phillips

Barkhad Abdirahman, is a young aspiring actor that can be seen in a number of films. From he's debut role in Captain Philips, a 2013 Sony production, to his recently Oscar nominated film Watu Wote: All of us. Originally born in the city of Galkayo, a city located in the north-central region of ...

Addi Mbantuwe Initally I thought Addi was supposed to be Somali because his name looked similar to Abdi which is generally a common Somali name. I think Barkhad who is only an inch shorter than the charcter and is of Somali descent can pull off a realistic portrayal.

8. Mahershala Ali

Actor | House of Cards

Mahershala Ali is fast becoming one of the freshest and most in-demand faces in Hollywood with his extraordinarily diverse skill set and wide-ranging background in film, television, and theater.

This past fall, Ali wrapped A24's Brad Pitt and Adele Romanski produced independent feature film, ...

Oliver Tambossa Ali's role as Mombassa in Predators shows to me that African-Americans can do native African accents.

9. Richie Campbell

Actor | The Frankenstein Chronicles

Richie Campbell is an actor and assistant director, known for The Frankenstein Chronicles (2015), Alien: Isolation (2014) and Anuvahood (2011).

Prosper Kouassi I saw Campbell as Ndale in Waterloo Road, a Malawi expariate to Britian. He pulled off a brilliant accent and he look young enough for the role. He is a British Eritrean actor.

10. Oded Fehr

Actor | The Mummy Returns

Oded Fehr was born on November 23, 1970 in Tel Aviv, Israel. He is an actor, known for The Mummy Returns (2001), Resident Evil: Extinction (2007) and The Mummy (1999). He has been married to Rhonda Tollefson since December 22, 2000. They have three children.

Paul Ferenc Paul is a Hungarian Israeli. Fehr is an Isreali actor of mixed Isrealis Jewish and some European descent which makes him suitable for the character. He is a bit tall being 2 inches taller but isn't much of an issue in my opinion.

11. Jonathan Gabriel Charles

Actor | Power

Jonathan Gabriel Charles, born and raised in Haiti for the first ten years of his life, immigrated to New York with his parents at the age of 10, Queens to be exact. As a graduate from the New York Film Academy, and studies from the historic HB Studio, Jonathan booked his first acting role in 2007,...

Andre Hyppolite Andre is of Haitian descent so I makes sense to have Haitian actor Charles for the role.

12. Jensen Ackles

Actor | Supernatural

Jensen Ross Ackles, better known as simply Jensen Ackles, was born on March 1, 1978, in Dallas, Texas, to Donna Joan (Shaffer) and actor Alan Ackles. He has English, German, and Scottish ancestry. Jensen grew up in Richardson, Texas, together with his older brother, Joshua, and a younger sister, ...

Warren Clyde Jensen Ackles is a bit short as Clyde is 6'3" and Ackles is about 6'2" but there is striking resembalance between the two off them.

13. Rade Serbedzija

Actor | The Saint

Rade Serbedzija was born in Bunic (Korenica) in 1946. Graduated from the Academy of Dramatic Arts in Zagreb. Still a student, he started to play the leading roles in films and theater productions. He is remembered as an outstanding Peer Gynt, Don Juan, Georgij, Melkior, Oedipus, Hamlet, Leon and ...

Josip Idromeno Rade Serbedzija is the Albanian guy from Taken 2. Because of that role he suits the character Josip who is a Albanian.

14. Jean-Paul Ly

Actor | Jailbreak

Jean-Paul Ly is an award winning action actor and can be seen most recently in his breakout role in JAILBREAK (on Netflix Global, winner of the 2017 Fantasia Film Festival for Best Action Feature), and NIGHTSHOOTERS (Nominated in Best UK Feature at 2018 RAINDANCE FILM FESTIVAL). He is also playing ...

Xianyong Bai Jean-Paul Ly is well known French-Chinese actor, Martial Artist and Stunt man. I feel that he should do more than just stunt doubling and that he suits Bai as both are short young Chinese men with a tan and athletic potential.

15. Waris Ahluwalia

Actor | Inside Man

Waris Ahluwalia is an actor and producer, known for Inside Man (2006), The Darjeeling Limited (2007) and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004).

Quarbani Singh A Punjabi Mauritian who serves as an ally or playable character. I felt a Sikh actor would be the best choice since Singh is a Sikh himself.

16. Tahar Rahim

Actor | Un prophète

Tahar Rahim was born on July 4, 1981 in Belfort, Territoire de Belfort, France. He is an actor, known for A Prophet (2009), The Past (2013) and Day of the Falcon (2011). He has been married to Leïla Bekhti since 2010.

Hakim Echebbi French-Algerian actor Tahar Rahim is well known in France and oversees for many performances and is fluency in multiple languages. Echebbi is an Algerian Navy soldier and I feel Tahr is perfectly suited to this role.

17. Erik Marmo

Actor | Mulheres Apaixonadas

Erik Marmo was born on June 24, 1976 in Niterói, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil as Erik Marmo de Moraes. He is an actor and writer, known for Women in Love (2003), Seven Sins (2007) and Mais Uma Vez Amor (2005). He has been married to Larissa Burnier since March 30, 2009. They have two children.

Marty Alencar Brazilian soldier alencar is about 5'10" and is seemingly either of White/Pardo descent. Pardo meaning Mixed Raced. I thought an actual Brazilian actor would fit the role.

18. Jason O'Mara

Actor | The Man in the High Castle

Jason O'Mara was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. Soon after graduating from Trinity College Dublin with a BA in Drama and Theatre he moved to London, England, to further pursue his acting career. Time spent in British repertory theater led to leading roles in acclaimed productions at some of ...

Frank Bilders The Irish Hooligan was known for being a notorious Vandal and rioter before joining the IRA. I feel that a real Irish actor like Jason O'mara could pull off a realistic Irish badman.

19. Dania Ramirez

Actress | X-Men: The Last Stand

Dania is a Latin American actress born in the Dominican Republic. She grew up, living with her grandmother, in a poor household. Her parents left for the United States, when she was 6-months old, and she finally joined them in New York when she was age 10.

She knew from a young age that she wanted ...

Flora Guillen An Angolan girl from Cuba. She is an ally character in Far Cry 2 and generally is very cynical to others. I Dania Ramirez's role as Callisto in X-men kinda gave a good impression that she could play this character despite being Dominican.

20. Natasha Alam

Actress | True Blood

Born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, Natasha, Russian abbreviation for Natalia, attended school at the University of Technology for Aviation. In search of independence, Natasha moved to Moscow to model under "Red Stars" model management. A few years later, Natasha was scouted by the Italian agency, "...

Nasreen Davar Not the easiest character to cast as Davar is a 5'4" Tajik female soldier. Alam is from Central Asian aswell but she is 5'10" and from Uzbekistan.

21. Marion Cotillard

Actress | La môme

Academy Award-winning actress Marion Cotillard was born on September 30, 1975 in Paris. Cotillard is the daughter of Jean-Claude Cotillard, an actor, playwright and director, and Niseema Theillaud, an actress and drama teacher. Her father's family is Breton.

Raised in Orléans, France, she made her ...

Michele Dachss Bit difficult trying to find a French actress for Dachss as she is apparently 35 despite her youthful look. I felt that Marion can dye her hair blonde to reswemble the character since there is a slight similarity in the facial features.

22. Grant Gustin

Actor | The Flash

Thomas Grant Gustin was born on January 14, 1990 in Norfolk, Virginia, to Tina Lynne (Sweeney), a pediatric nurse, and Thomas Avery Gustin. In 2008, he graduated from Granby High School and went on to attend the BFA Music Theatre Program at Elon University in North Carolina for two years. He left ...

Jason Brody Grant Gustin is 6'2", quite slim and young so he kinda fits the look of Jason. Also Jason is one of the few Far Cry characters that initially is incapable of wielding a firearm.

23. Dane DeHaan

Actor | Chronicle

Dane DeHaan recently wrapped production on Amazon Studio's international cocaine drama Zero Zero Zero, in which he stars.

On the silver screen DeHaan was last seen as Billy the Kid in The Kid opposite Ethan Hawke and Chris Pratt. He played the title character in Luc Besson's Valerian and The City of...

Riley Brody Younger brother of Jason. I felt that when I first saw Riley he reminded me of Dane from the Amazing Spiderman films. Probably becasue of his height and young appearence.

24. Fabiola Sicily

Actress | Malibu Horror Story

Fabiola Sicily was born in Indonesia. She is an actress, known for The Malibu Tapes (2019), False Colors and Brando Unauthorized (2010).

Citra Talugmai Citra ethnicity is presumably ambiguous. However her name is a common and traditional name in Indonesia and Malaysia. It is likely she is SouthEast Asian Descent. So I felt Indonesian actress Sicily should go for this role.

25. Walton Goggins

Actor | Justified

Walton Goggins is an actor of considerable versatility and acclaim who has delivered provocative performances in a multitude of feature films and television series. He won a Critics' Choice Award for his performance in the HBO comedy series "Vice Principals" and landed an Emmy nomination for his ...

Dr Alec Earnhardt something about Walton looks remakably similare to Dr Alec. Albeit Walton may be bit younger.

26. Chris Pratt

Actor | Guardians of the Galaxy

Christopher Michael Pratt is an American film and television actor. He came to prominence for his small-screen roles, including Bright Abbott in Everwood (2002), Ché in The O.C. (2003), and Andy Dwyer and Parks and Recreation (2009), and notable film roles in Moneyball (2011), The Five-Year ...

Grant Brody Grant is the older borther of Jason and former member of the US military. I can see a similarity between Chris and Grant so I thought why not.

27. Sendhil Ramamurthy

Actor | Beauty and the Beast

Sendhil Ramamurthy (born May 17, 1974) is an American actor. He is best known for his roles as geneticist Mohinder Suresh in the NBC sci-fi drama Heroes and Jai Wilcox in the action spy series Covert Affairs. He appeared as Abhay in the Indian film Shor in the City. He played Gabriel Lowen in The ...

Ajay Ghale aka AJ Gale Ajay is a Karati American. So a South Asian American actor would be suitable for this character. Sendhil is nearly 5'10" and is has similar features to Ajay. Whilst Sendhil is actually Indian American, Ajay Ghale is Kirati American (Kirati being a Nepalese ethnicity). Funnily enough the Asian characters refer to him as Ah-Jay Gha-Le, but he and non-Asian characters always refers to him as Ay-Jay Gail.

28. Tom Wu

Actor | Marco Polo: One Hundred Eyes

Tom Wu is known for his work on Marco Polo: One Hundred Eyes (2015), Kick-Ass 2 (2013) and Ra.One (2011).

Pagan Min Pagan Min is the main antagonist of Far Cry 4. I personally consider him as an evil tyrant but not an antagonist to Ajay as he is kinda safe to him. Tom Wu is a British Chinese actor who is 5'11" and is well experienced in action films. Ironically Min is British Chinese and Ajay is Karati American however in British the term Asian refers to South Asians and East Asians as generally described as Oriental. In USA Asian refers to East Asians and South Asians are described as Desi. So neither Min or Ghale would be described as Asians in informal contexts in their National countries (Britian and USA respectively).

29. Amrita Acharia

Actress | Game of Thrones

Amrita Acharia is of Nepalese-Ukrainian heritage. She grew up in Ukraine, Kathmandu and England before moving with her family to Norway aged 13. After completing high school in Tromsø, Amrita moved to England to pursue her acting career. Since then she has worked in Norway, London and the US. She ...

Amita One of the allies of Ajay Ghale. She believes in modernising Kirat. Amrita is of half Nepalese, half Ukrainian descent. which fits because most of the Kiratis are Nepalese.

30. Shaan Rahman

Actor | Project Ommi

Born and raised in Bangladesh till age 19, Shaan Rahman now resides in Vancouver BC in pursuit of further acting training and work in film, TV and theatre. Having studied math, physics and performance arts through his life, Shaan is a scientist who dreams and an artist who rationalizes.

During his ...

Sabal Another ally of Ajay Ghale. He is the opposite of Amrita as he wishes to preserve the traditional culture of Kirat. Shaan Rahman is a Bangladeshi Canadian actor and martial artist. Being 5'9" and having long dark hair. He can definitly portray a convincing Sabal. https://ca.linkedin.com/pub/shaan-rahman/36/743/23a (link to see a photo of Shaan Rahman.)

31. Karen David

Actress | Galavant

From India to Canada, England to America, Karen David has crisscrossed the world making true fans everywhere along the way. With her exotic beauty and multicultural pedigree, of which she includes Chinese, Khasi tribe, and Indian, the actress and singer/songwriter has found equal diversity in her ...

Noore Najjar British/Canadian actress of asian descent. Karen David was born in the foothills of the Himalayas to the Khasi tribe. This make her very suitable for a Himalayan woman.

32. Lucy Liu

Actress | Kill Bill: Vol. 1

Born to immigrants in Queens, New York, Lucy Liu has always tried to balance an interest in her cultural heritage with a desire to move beyond a strictly Asian-American experience. Lucy's mother, Cecilia, a biochemist, is from Beijing, and her father, Tom Liu, a civil engineer, is from Shanghai. ...

Yuma Lau Ally of Pagan Min and his adoptive Sister. She hate Ajay's mother Ishwari because she blaims her for making Pagan weak. Therefore she is an enemy to Ajay.

33. Anjli Mohindra

Actress | Bodyguard

Anjli Mohindra was born in Edgware, London to parents Sandy and Bob Mohindra. She attended West Bridgford School in Nottingham and aged twelve was accepted into the Carlton Junior Television Workshops. She began as a child actor appearing in a number of seasons on the Doctor Who franchise, The ...

Bhadra A young girl who is also an ally to Ajay Ghale. She is generally very adventerous and is presumed to be the new Tarun Matara, the real life incarnation of the Bride of Banashur from Kyrat mythology. Anjli is a British Indian actress. She may not be a teen anymore but she could still play this character.

34. Alex Meraz

Actor | The Twilight Saga: New Moon

Alex Meraz was born on January 10, 1985 in Mesa, Arizona, USA as Alejandro Meraz. He is an actor and writer, known for The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009), The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010) and Suicide Squad (2016). He has been married to Kim since December 31, 2007. They have two children.

Vaas Montenegro I felt it would be best to have a latino actor for this latino psycho.
