WANTED: The most powerful man in the universe. Should be muscular. Blond hair a plus. Needs to be skilled in the Secrets of Grayskull and immune to evil forces of Skeletor. Long hours, good pay. Some near-nudity required.
That, at least, is how one might imagine the casting call for the role of He-Man in the upcoming Masters of the Universe movie, based on the successful Mattel toy line – launched in 1982 – and already the inspiration for the 1987 feature Masters of the Universe, which starred a muscular, blond and nearly naked Dolph Lundgren as Eternia's greatest warrior and Skeletor's archenemy.
The proposed 2011 version is to be directed by John Stevenson, who co-directed Kung-Fu Panda and whose credits also include the Shrek movies. But still up for grabs: the leading role of He-Man.
This is where you come in. Imagine yourself the casting director, in search of the ultimate action hero. From these four box-office-worthy hunks, whom would you pick to fill He-Man's furry briefs?
