A lot of you, like Baluk, thought of Shia Lebeouf to play Officer Jack Traven, which is a good thought as the young actor is making a name for himself in these kinds of fast-paced action roles. And it's hard to argue with CYL's suggestion for the intense Christian Bale to play the lead, too.
In the end I went with the Jack I liked best, as well as a great suggestion for Lt. McMahon: congrats to lilprisci!
