Sean Connery as Scruffy would be hilarious, especially if his only line in the whole film was "I'm Scruffy. The Janitor." I would KILL to hear him say that.

[Scruffy]Second.[/Scruffy]

That'd be great...I'd see a Futurama live-action film just for that...otherwise, (yes, I know it's been said before) a live-action Futurama would be..."not good".

No, I don't really see Sean William Scott as Fry.  On the other hand, if they were doing a live-action version of "I, Meatbag" he'd make a great human Bender.

That would be particularly good if none of the other parts were played by big name actors.

But who would be playing Leela's Breasts?

I think the ideal real-life design Leela should be Jane Fonda's Barbarella, emphasising one eye.  That's pretty much the Sci-fi heroine description anyway, right?

Farnsworth should be played by a crazy old hobo found wandering around outside the studio. The Robot Devil should be played by Kelsey Grammer.

Maybe, I just can't see CGI working well with the feel of the show, but then of course, non-CGI would look awful. One of the many reasons I think Futurama just isn't suitable for live action.

Seth Green does seem to be a good Fry.

Seth Green would make a good Fry.  I saw Enemy of the State and the way Seth Green looked in that movie reminds me of Fry.

davis a is right on the money with kif, however i dont think it would work, it would lose the fantasy of the cartoon world, the complete impossibility of things that only cartoons can have.

I think Mom should be played by Angelica Huston and the oldest son should be played by gary oldman. And of course have the stupid youngest be played by DiMaggio for good measure.

Morgan Proctor- Helena Bonham Carter.
Umbriel- Bridget Fonda[or Parker Posey. It all depends on if you want her to sound like herself or look like herself.]
Edna- ....No one's sexy enough :/
Pam Anderson- Pam Anderson. ^^;

here's what I think

FRY-Seth Green
LEELA-Jeri Ryan, Angelina Jolie or Katey Segal, Katey Segal at top I think
AMY-Linda Park
HERMES-Marlon Wayans
PROF.-Christopher Lloyd
SCRUFFY-Sean Connery
ZAPP-William Shatner
MOM-Anjelica Huston
WALT-Ben Afflec, don't know why
LARRY-Matt Damon, cause he's Ben's bitch
IGNAR-David Spade
LINDA-Heather Graham
CUBERT and DWIGHT-randome annoying boys
SMITTY-what the hell, Billy West

I have no idea for Labarbra, or the Mayor or Leela's parents, or Amy's parents, and for the CGI characters get the original voicing people

Those people are all fine but what about Chyna for Leela for the obvious reasons that she could kick your ass if you made fun of her nose.  laff

Yeah I just can't see cgi really working either...  I mean imagine computer generated zoidberg, or even worse Bender.

Then again them dressing up in suits wouldn't look that much better either... Although the people in X-Men looked quite impressive without cgi.

I think a cartoon movie is gonna come out way before any live action one anyways.   big grin

I'm not sure if a cartoon Futurama movie will ever come out but I really hope it will. But I think I speak for every one when I say that no one wants a live action Futurama movie, and we're just speaking hypothetically, or at least I know I am.

And am I the only one who thinks Katey Segal would work for Leela? I really think she could do it, maybe need work on kicking people's asses but she's got the same body and additude, and does Leela's voice, so she would be good.

Cristopher Lloyd is by far one of the best calls for The Professor.
Or maybe Harry Shearer.
How's about Albert Brooks as Zoidberg?
or maybe Len Lesser (Uncle Leo from Seinfeld) or Wayne Knight?
And as long as I'm casting Seifeld actors into Futurama roles...
John O'Hurley as Zapp?

Here's an even spookier idea:
Cast the characters from the Simpsons
as the characters from Fututama,
The Duff Beer Guy as Zapp...

I will agree with that. David Hyde Peirce has shown that he can easily do voice overs for CGI characters. (If I voted in poster of the month that would be worth one)

I think it would interesting to have Lauren Tom (with some special makeup to make her look younger) play Amy.

Bender should be a chessy puppet whose arms don't work. (guess what I'm referencing)  wink

No, pick someone young...so he has that pep that only Professie can have...I think Will Ferral can do no wrong. If we have to pick a Zoidy, Hank Azaria. He does his share of live action stuff (Lunch, go see The Birdcage NOW). And I want to see Nicole Kidman run around in stretch pants as Leela. My only objection to Katey Sagal is that's she's a little too old to pass as a 20-something kung fu chick. Although she looks pretty damn good for 50...
Fry, maybe Seth Green, although I think the lead kid from That 70's show could do it (hell, take the WHOLE cast)

And no one's picked a Zapp?
