Continuing the Suicide Squad casting call theme on this blog this weekend it just hit me who would be the perfect Bronze Tiger ( a.k.a Ben Turner). Now there's other possible candidates like Wesley Snipes or maybe even Billy Blanks ( from the tie-bow work out commercials) and Tiger Woods (just kidding) but if they ever introduce the Bronze Tiger character to the big or small screen they need to get Roger Cross to play the role. Cross has been in a number of things over the years but I loved him best as the dependable and highly intelligent tactical C.T.U. ( counter terrorism unit ) field agent Curtis Manning in 24.
Now I don't need to rattle off Turner's resume of what makes him such a bad ass. But in a nut shell, Ben Turner is the best Martial artist in the DC Universe next to Batman with Rick Flag and Richard Dragon as close seconds. Turner on more then one occasion has taken down super powered opponents by hand cause he's just that good at what he does. Every thing that Roger Cross brought to the role of Curtis Manning would be perfect for playing the Bronze Tiger. As you can see from the the photo he looks the part every bit as much as Hugh Jackman did for Wolverine. He's tall, buffed and with a voice that gives James Earl Jones a run for his money Cross was born for the role. Cross would also make a good Cyborg from the Titans or John Stewart who my ex used to call "the brother Green Lantern". Coming up next this weekend, Rick Flag and The Bronze Tiger - Band of Brothers.
I just found this tribute video to the Bronze Tiger. And it has the perfect 80's song to go with it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4Vlb6IOdZE
