Knowing that its a Larry Cohen movie really makes Atom's draft work a lot better. There's a cohesion to it that really suggests a specific kind of movie, and I want to say I find it really quite impressive. I'll head to head this, but the specific size of these really fist well together.

Rorschach - MacNicol V Moriarty: Moriarty for sure. Great pick, lots of fun. MacNicol looks a bit like Kovacs, and goes nuts plenty, but I can't imagine him kicking anyone's ass. ATOM

Dan - Costner V Bogosian: I don't think either are perfect, both seem a little Alpha for Dan. But Bogosian's Alpha-ness is more easily subverted and again, he fits the milieu. ATOM

Laurie: Shields V Carrera: I have only minimal opinion of Carrera, but Shields I think is a not very good actress and also exactly the person who would have been cast as Laurie in 1989. I don't know what kind of chemistry she'd have with Costner or Ramis, though. DRAW

Manhattan - Ramis V Carradine: Carradine works for this film, but I admit, I want to see how Ramis works as a naked blue rotoscoped God with an affinity for fucking. SIMBOB

Comedian Reed V Sorvino: Reed, all the way. Have I missed the old movies where Paul Sorvino believably kicked people's ass all the time? SIMBOB

Veidt: Brown V Roberts: Both pretty inspired. I think Roberts would likely be the more nuanced take, at this specific time in his career, at least. ATOM

Moloch - Prechtel V Spinell: I only know Spinell slightly, and Prechtel not at all. Both seem like good picks DRAW

Hollis - Heston V Fuller: Heston is one of the best Hollis picks. He'd actually be just about perfect at playing the character as presented in the book. SIMBOB

Sally - Dickinson V Davis: Unless Bette Davis is doing some very weird camp thing, I think this is an easy win for Dickinson. Seems a natural fit. SIMBOB

Simbob has one more in his favor, but I think in the end I'm still going with Atom's Larry Cohen list. It fits together quite well, and seems to have been planned quite well. I can see what this movie looks like in my head.
