    After recently watching a few episodes of TANG (This Ain’t No Game,) a show that reviews movies that were based off of video games, with the results almost always being horrific. I couldn’t help wondering what would happen if Valve made a live action film based off of Team Fortress, ruining the franchise forever.

    [ame="http://www.giantbomb.com/tang-in-the-name-of-the-king/17-1080/"]TANG: In The Name of the King - giantbomb.com[/ame]

    So just to amuse myself, I started to compile a list of ideal actors to play each character from the game. The results however where nothing short of spectacular. It would either be the greatest movie in history of entire world... or the worst roll of film ever to see the light of day. I'll let you decide.

    My choices were made based on real actors, not just ones that look the part (that means you Stephen Colbert), but ones that could also bring out some of the character. I’ll be revealing my picks in great Valve fashion on my blog. One each day for the next week or so.

    Click on each title below to read the explanation for my pick.

    The player that video is using...the bottom bar...

    Ugghhhhhhh. I tried to pause that movie a few times and the bar just goes waaay out of whack and jumps around and avoids every single click ever. Blaarrrgghhh.

    Love the comparison pictures, though. As much as I know a TF2 movie would suck, I would probably watch it for a good laugh =P

    Yeah, apparently there is a bug with that video control bar being embedded in the page. Actually I never meant to embed it in the first place, it automatically did it. I went back and tried to embed it properly with the provided code from the site, but I guess HTML code is disabled on the forums? I think someone would need to make a BBCode specific for giantbomb.com in order to fix this.


    Anyway, does anyone think I should release the 5th one today, or wait till Monday?

    HAHAHA. I couldn't stop laughing at Colin Mochrie as the Pyro. Not only is he NOT a girl, but he's a guy who plays a girl frequently and is CANADIAN! WOOO!

    Here's a little something for everyone to hopefully help us forget we used that evil immoral idle program thing and lost every item we had.
