Who Should Play He-Man?

I recently brought you news that there will be a live-action film based on the 1980s cartoon series "He-Man." A while ago, rumors swirled that this movie was being made with Brad Pitt purportedly taking the lead role.

While I wouldn't object to that, I think there are other people who could also do the role justice, namely: The Rock, on whom I have a painful crush. Or perhaps Josh Holloway (Sawyer on "Lost")? I've brainstormed a few options for possible He-Men, so tell me who you could envision playing one of the Masters of the Universe.

Well, I think an unknown might be a better choice. Not just any hunky blond but someone with charisma and very masculine such that they are believable in the role and it isn't too cheesy.

I agree with Jason Lewis, he definitley can pull off the hair. As much as I love some of those other guys I can't imagine them being He-Man.

I'll admit to a crush on The Rock as well, Buzz! I can totally see him in that role. Johnny Depp? I love the man, but NO!

Well based on those movie shots from Surfer Dude, MM seems like a good choice. He's got that brutish look down pat.

Groan Brad is going to destroy He-Man. He is justs not fit for that role looks or body aside. Jason Lewis or The Rock are so much better for the role.

I can't really picture anyone famous being he-man.. seems it would be better taken on by a lesser known actor.

As much as I LOVE Johnny Depp, I cannot see him as He-Man!! Maybe Matt Damon or Gerard Butler (who I LOVE even more!) would be a good choice.

I have no name but a blond muscualar handsome man with a nice simple tan (no overdoing) will do and also look great with shoulder length hair or a bit shorter, no geeky looking freaks to play a MAN'S role, haha ;)...like Daniel Craig...A man like Brad or better will do...someone said Kevin Sorbo from Hercules and Andromeda,....love him but....nahhh.

DEFINATELY Jason Lewis. Look at him for Christ's sake! He is BORN to be He-Man! http://imdb.com/name/nm0507314/ Look at him back in his Sex and the City days! With the longish hair! PHWOAR firstly, and HE-MAN secondly! I love Aero adverts. (I live in the UK) xxx
