so will he have a Candian/Scottish accent?

And because I have time on my hands I will list actors that are better suited for this role:

  1. Tom Hardy
  2. Micheal Fasbender
  3. Gerrad Butler
  4. James McAvoy
  5. Liam or Chris Hemworth
  6. Tom Hiddleston
  7. Alexander Skarsgard
  8. Stephen Moyer
  9. Ryan Kwanten
  10. Richard Madden
  11. Kit Harington
  12. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

That's 12 right there most of the bottom half would come cheaper than Reynolds!

I don't hate Ryan Reynolds, but he's much more suited for a comedy role, or at least an action role where he also provides some comic relief.  I just can't picture him as MacLeod, especially with the Celtic brogue.  If they maintain the character's Scottish roots then I could easily see Reynolds going the way of Kevin Costner as Robin Hood.  Costner couldn't pull off the English accent, so they basically took the character and gave him a very curious American accent.  Especially curious since America as a country didn't even exist yet.

@cinemaman72: Based on his career so far, I'd say Micheal Fasbender is better suited for every role than anyone.  The dude just nails every role, every time.  

@SpiderHero: "It's better to burn out than to fade away!"

I really don't see a need for a remake/reboot, but I am an unabashed fan of the original.  I also don't see Reynolds as a fit for this.  Generally, I like him, but this one just doesn't work.  Oh well.  Maybe they'll get lucky and do a good job with this.

Highlander hits a new low...

 It's not like Kevin McKidd wasn't available. You know, someone with an actual Scotish accent and isn't unfamiliar around using a sword (HBO's Rome). Instead they had to go with the least common denominator.

Ouch!  Reynolds didn't particurlarly impress me in Green Lantern.  I thought he was adequit at best.

I think RR is ok, the other factors like writer, script and direction will have more to do wether or not the film is good. Just like Green Lantern
