I'm up.

Ill take Harry Lange as my production designer.

Lange worked with Kubrick on 2001: A Space Odyssey. He is pretty much a specialist in designing plausible sci-fi sets, props and costumes, having worked for the US military illustrating manuals for fighter-pilots and worked for NASA with the legendary Wernher von Braun designing space-ships. Pretty crazy stuff.

He was also a production designer for George Lucas on The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, and on the James Bond film Moonraker.

Jackass has a pending pick, Vapid has 3 pending picks.
And Rizko is on the clock.

Thanks for the heads-up again Jasi

Dustin Hoffman

Quote:
Dustin Lee Hoffman[1] (born August 8, 1937)[1] is an American actor with a career in film, television, and theatre since 1960. He has been known for his versatile portrayals of antiheroes and vulnerable types of characters.[2]

He first drew critical praise for the 1966 Off-Broadway play Eh? for which he won a Theatre World Award and a Drama Desk Award. This was soon followed by his breakthrough movie role as Benjamin Braddock in The Graduate (1967). Since then Hoffman's career has largely been focused in cinema with only sporadic returns to television and the stage. Some of his most noted films are Midnight Cowboy, Lenny, All the President's Men, Kramer vs. Kramer, Tootsie, Rain Man, and Wag the Dog.

Hoffman has won two Academy Awards, five Golden Globes, three BAFTAs, three Drama Desk Awards, and an Emmy Award. Dustin Hoffman received the AFI Life Achievement Award in 1999.



He'll play the role of Hector Adonis

With my final pick, I'll take:

Anton Karas



He'll help with the score and play the zither for it.

Credit goes to Jasi. I forgot Hoffman existed until he mentioned him.

Okay the trade and free-agent period is on (24 hours). Once it's over we'll start posting write-ups. But, by all means, if you're happy with your team and aren't going to tweak, post your write-up whenever you want.

I'll quote the rules below:

2) If you choose to sign a free-agent, you must cut one of your cast or crew to make room for them.
3) Scripts and script-writers are NOT free agents.
4) Once a cast or crew member has been cut for a free agent they become available for other players to sign.
5) Trades must be even numerically.
6) No vetos

So far:
- LittleMoney has put Sylvester Stallone and Leonardo DiCaprio on the block.
No offers as of yet.

- I'm looking to trade Richard Taylor (LOTR production design guy)
No offers as of yet.

Ok, I cut Jeremy Irons and I sign John Malkovich.



Nothing wrong with Irons, but Malkovich just seems to me more appropriate to be the face of the pensive, tortured, charismatic soul of Ivan Karamazov, the eldest brother.

How well do people think Orson Welles would play the role of Don Croce?

Quote:
Don Croce Malo The extremely powerful Capo Di Capi who wields power not only in the entire island of Sicily but also in Rome and with the Italian government. A legendary negotiator, Don Croce quickly rises to the head of the Mafia and early into Turi Guiliano's career, is eager to make Guiliano the heir to his Mafia empire, but is unable to do so, due to Guiliano's deep hatred of the Mafia. As Guiliano's daring exploits increase and after Guiliano assassinates six prominent Mafia leaders and severely damages his interests, Don Croce takes the decision to kill Guiliano.

This is fat Orson Welles like in Touch of Evil:


The book says Don Croce is disgustingly fat, and Orson looks pretty bad in that pic.

He'll be great.
Another elite guy that went undrafted (especially as director).
Interesting how this draft isn't based on talent but on need...

Sounds like a prime candidate for Vito.

Vito is only in for the last 5 mins (he's only in the last chapter and it's only about 5 pages), Croce has a lot more screen time, but Croce isn't quite as iconic and his dialogue isn't as important as Vito's. Vito basically gives Micheal his first lesson as a mafia boss on how to survive. Though on the other hand the movie, while part of the Godfather universe, isn't quite a sequel/prequel movie so if one were to separate the movie from both Godfathers then Vito's speech loses some of it's importance.

Decisions, Decisions....

Yea I though he had been drafted as a director so I never really thought about drafting him, but I just checked and noticed he was still on the board.
