    Default If there was a Van Halen movie made, who would play.....

    ...our guys? If you watch the show Bloodline on Netflix then I think you will agree the actor who plays Kevin has got to be a top pick for Mike!
    Who you got for the rest?

    Okay, I'll play. I'll preface this by saying that I'm thinking in terms of who could play them in, say, an adaptation of Van Halen Rising, or otherwise in their heyday. So, going for people who can play in their twenties:

    As Eddie Van Halen, Game of Thrones' Kit Harington:



    As David Lee Roth, Neighbors' Zac Efron:



    As Alex Van Halen, Mad Max: Fury Road's Nicholas Hoult:



    As Michael Anthony, Pitch Perfect's Adam DeVine:



    Can you guys see it?

    Good call on Efron. Never thought of him as Dave but I think he could pull it off.
    †"He has a swaggering retro machismo that will give hives to the Steinem cabal" -Camille Paglia on Donald Trump

    "Make way for the bad guy"- Tony Montana

    'This hamburger don't need no helper"- David Lee Roth

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesnít really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    I think Jeff Bridges as Sammy is a no brainer.

    I was thinking Bette Midler for Sam...
    I don't always listen to hard rock, but when I do, I prefer Van Halen. Stay Frosty my friends.

    The most important thing is to cast an actor for Ed that can teach the actor who plays Mike how to emote.

    I used to hate Efron because I was in middle school and that's who all the girls were into but I've come to absolutely love him as a comedic actor last in the last year or two.

    The first thing I thought of from the instant he appeared on screen in season 1..."DAMN, this guy could be Michael Anthony's cousin!"
    He's a Broadway guy, too, so I'm sure he could do Mikey proud hitting those harmonies.
