    I think warner bros is planning to do a remake of the Dirty Harry series. For you, who's the actor who could best portray the role of Harry Callahan a.k.a. dirty Harry?
    My vote would go all the way for Hugh Jackman. He looks exactly like a young Clint Eastwood.
    It would be great to see him say the immortal lines, "Go ahead punk, make my day....". :)

    Ben Stiller or Jim Carrey would fit the bill:banana:

    Speaking of Ben Stiller, I wish there's a third movie for the Gaylord Focker character:animlol:

    Tsk, ayoko na ng Focker movies...sequel na lang sa Zoolander!!! Hahahaha\

    Para hindi OT...

    Someone to play Dirty Harry? Jackman can pull of the American accent, but isn't he too small?

    Hugh Jackman was also the first actor on my mind that can be Dirty Harry. How about Vin Diesel, can he pull it off?

    what about ben affleck, but for me, hugh jackman would fit just right. he can pull it off, it's just like playing his role of wolverine without the adamantium steel claws.

    There'll only be one Dirty Harry for me.
    The original, Clint Eastwood.

    Accept no substitutes, punk.

    Russell Crowe, similar to his role in LA Confidential. Matatakot ka sa demeanor nya pag nagalit na. Parang raging bull. He has the size and 'mean streak' to just pull it off.

    Hugh Jackman is almost a look-alike to the young Clint. Pwede rin

    Why, oh why, do they want to do a remake of Dirty Harry?? Can't they come up with their own movie???

    If and when they do a remake, I hope at the minimum that they have a completely different plot line. If they just copy the original, that will be sad.

    Dalton,
    I'll see your Glock 10mm Auto and raise you .500 S&W Magnum.
    :tongueout:

    Now THERE's a handgun worth a new Callahan installment.
    Wonder if Clint could carry that monster convincingly, though.

    for me, i would still prefer the next harry callahan to carry the Smith and Wesson 686 .357 cal. although it may no longer be the most powerful handgun in the world today, there's still touch of originality into it. The next dirty harry should be a cool, tough as nails, badass detective. i think hugh jackman can pull it off. but of course, nothing can still beat the original clint eastwood himself.
    His adversaries should be believable psychos like ed gein a.k.a leatherface or serial killers like the zodiac. it would be a cool dirty harry movie if i may say so. I miss those police movies like stallone's cobra, walking tall.. and the deathwish series too.:) their lines back then may sound a little bit cheesy, predictable but they sure are worth watching.

    i believe it was a .357 magnum in the very first dirty harry film then he moved to the 44 magnum in magnum force. im not sure though but im pretty sure he used a .357 magnum.
