Highlander: The Remake

Posted in Personal by Will on Wednesday, September 30th, 2009 ~ 3pm

The Highlander remake people are asking on Facebook who should play Ramirez in the remake.

I feel that they should have new immortals not people named Ramirez and Connor. Anyone from the highlands is a Highlander, so it doesn’t even need to be a McLeod, for heavens sakes.

Nonetheless, I have some suggestions:

Remembering that Ramirez is Egyptian originally, not Spanish (even though Sean Connery played him as a sort of Spanish-Scottish character in the original), a black actor would make sense. In no particular order:

Chiwetel Ejiofor

Jay Laga’aia

Boris Kodjo

Richard T. Jones
