Gosh, I've always thought Jeremy Irons kinda looked like Frollo, now that he's older.
But honestly... Jeremy is Scar, that voice is Scar's only, I would be seeing him, not Frollo :/ The Hunchback is my all time favorite Disney movie, so it'd be interesting to have a life action remake, but that doesn't mean it would be a good idea though.
Well, Jeremy was the voice of Scar, right? one of the most famous and beloved Disney villains ever. Everyone recognizes his voice, every time I watch a Jeremy interview there are plenty of comments saying "All I can hear is Scar" ... It would be weird to hear Frollo with the same voice, it's Scar's voice.
Kevin's case is different, the movie itself is pretty underrated (which is extremely sad) so many people don't realize nor even know he was Pheobus' voice. But it would be very different with Jeremy.
I don't know, that's just my opinion. Many people see Peter Capaldi as Frollo, what do you guys think?
No, I don't want Jeremy Irons to play Frollo! My choice would be Malcolm McDowell! Irons, though sometimes he can make for a great villain, always carried charisma and eloquence about him that made him always some what likeable even when he was playing villains! I think McDowell has a much more sinister face and has a long established history of playing depraved villains and perverted creeps like Alex DeLarge from A Clockwork Orange and Caligula from Caligula. I'd rather Jeremy Irons play the Archdeacon. This is mostly because of his role as Father Gabriel in The Mission. I honestly think he gave the best performance of his career in that film and provided such a wonderful contrast between Father Gabriel, a kind and pacifistic priest, and Rodrigo Mendoza (Robert De Niro), a violent and ruthless slave hunter seeking redemption. Seeing him play the Archdeacon would bring back memories of Father Gabriel in my mind.
Here's my fan cast for a live action remake of The Hunchback of Notre Dame:
1. Daniel Radcliffe as Quasimodo
2. Camila Mendes as Esmerelda
3. Jeremy Sumpter as Captain Phoebus
4. Gael Garcia Bernal as Clopin
5. Malcolm McDowell as Judge Claude Frollo
6. John C. Reilly, Kenneth Branagh & Helena Bonham Carter as Hugo, Victor & Laverne
7. Jeremy Irons as The Archdeacon
8. Nina Dobrev as Quasimodo's mother
No, I think Frollo should be more like he was in the Disney film. I think Malcolm McDowell should be brilliant at playing a Complete Monster villain which (although he's played two in the past) is something he hasn't been given the proper chance to pull off in a good or memorable way!
Why not have John Noble play Frollo, Anthony Ingruber as Phoebus and Tom Holland as Quasimodo? Naomi Scott could play Esmeralda, Warwick Davis, Peter Dinklage and Linda Hunt as the Gargoyles. Ian Mckellen as the Archdeacon?
