You think you're better that I am?

If I were to re-cast the man with no name, I think I'd use an unknown. I think what made the man with no name a great character was that they got an outsider [in the acting business] to portray an outsider in the story, a relatively unknown actor like Clint Eastwood.

I think Christian Bale would make a good villain, just a give him a tan, a few scars and a moustache.

I think you'd really have to disregard who's popular, and at times acting ability, and just focus on faces that portray emotion without the need for dialogue.

It's perfect timing, large one...

That's it. That's pretty much what Leone did.


I'd very much love seeing the Czech actor Jiř Schmitzer in a Western, before he gets too old... He played a gunslinger in a film based on a Jack London story in the 80s, and he was great. He's the silent, immovable yet expressive type (strangely, a lot of the photos in the Google search show him making faces...).

And while I'm on the subject of Czech actors, I'd also put Viktor Preiss in there, just to see what he'd be like in a western... because he's the most versatile actor I know, period.

There are two kinds of films in this world:those which stay,even when their genre is forgotten,and those which don't.
