M. Night Shyamalan has found the cast for The Last Airbender, his upcoming live-action film based on the popular anime-inspired Nickelodeon series.
http://hollywoodinsider.ew.com/2008/12/shyamalan-casts.html

Noah Ringer as Aang, I can't find a picture. He's a karate star from Texas.

Jackson Rathbone as Sokka


Nicola Peltz as Katara


Jesse McCartneyas Zuko

He's also Roxas apparently...

THOSE ARE HORRIBLE CHOICES!!!!!!  >:(

They're good looking but they don't fit the characters at all! And I'm protesting if they make Jesse McCartney Zuko! ZUKO IS THE AWESOMENESS AND JESSE MCCARTNEY IS NOT!!!  >:( >:( >:(

Sorry about this outburst but I thought it should be said.

Alright but looking at his eyes he looks a lot like Zuko. Keep in mind that you can change the hair and add makeup to look like the character. Take the Joker for example, I had no clue that was Heath Leger for the longest time. Also you would never think that he could pull off that roll but he did is perfectly. You shouldn't judge something before you try it/see it.

well they might be able to pull it off looks wise but......I don't think they could act the characters very well. and it justs seems like a disgrace to have the voice actor for rufio play zuko and then go to jesse? nu uh. he not awesome enough.

but I must say I like that its being directed by m. night shamilagn(not sure if that's how you say it or spell it)

The look in his eye, and the shape of it and whatnot. But not the color! And I just don't see him as Zuko! I don't think he can pull that off properly. He doesn't seem like the violent-Zuko type. Or even the nice-Zuko type. He seems like the high school pretty boy type. And that's how it should stay.

I personally don't think that is true. No one can ever tell when I wear the ones I got. I mean if you are making a subtle change no one will notice. Zuko's eyes are yellow and his eyes are yellowish in the center around the pupil (that is what would be seen if anything) so I don't think you would be able to see it.

True. waiting until the trailer would be a good idea. I'm still just a little skeptical of this. hopefully it will turn out well.

...Hm. I like the choice for Sokka a lot. The face shape is really awesome, specifically the jaw. [..or maybe it's just the angle?] ....Although, I do kind of wish there was more of a darker complexion with Sokka and Katara.

so I told a bunch of people today about this including all the actors and actresses in it and who's directing it. they all looked at me like I was crazy and where I had heard such a thing. they also thought jesse mccartney was a bad idea. XD

I don't really like that Jesse McCartney is playing anyone, especially Zuko. Their Katara could be worse... whose gonna be playing Toph? Will there even be a Toph?
I'd also like to know if they have anyone to play Aang yet.

Expect a
TWIST!

We find out that Aang has lost his memory and is actually the long lost heir to the fire nation. He was undercover with the air benders when he was encased in the iceberg (by that last Avatar). Once he regains his memories he kills Sokka (nooooooo!) and duels Zuko for control of the Fire Nation. Katara helps Zuko defeat Aang (avenging her brother's death) and their newfound love brings peace to the world.
THAT'S a twist.

or worse.

We will discover that Aang is actually just another average American kid who dreamed the whole world while asleep in science class.

Actually, I'm really kind of excited for this movie. xD Even with all the wank going on about the actors. They matched face shapes to characters well, and the whole point of acting is to be someone who you really aren't so we'll see how that all goes, I guess. I, personally, think Jesse's face matches Zuko quite well.

also, @ people who wank about not asian people getting cast, the whole point of avatar is that the different nations are basically representing different areas/continent in the actual world. not everyone has to be asian, really.

fire nation = china
water nation = arctic and antarctica
earth nation = north america & native americans
and well, air nation is kind of gone, so who knows?

...just my personal take on the movie. : D

YES SOMEONE WHO AGREES WITH ME! I think their faces match the others faces really well. It is easy to add detail to a face but impossible to change the face shape :P

I really can't wait for this movie to come out. ^_^

even if it is bad, it may only be bad to those that have seen the cartoon. It might spark interest into the cartoon therefore getting more people into anime :P (if you consider avatar anime ::))
