    Jensen Ackles

    • Shazay says:

      Thats a great idea for casting! I’m yawning at the idea of this production though. I liked the sound of music, I’m not interested in Peter Pan, and I’m wouldn’t bother watching this. BUT, I guess it would depend on who they got to play the roles…..I guess.

    • Drew says:

      He did this play a few years back, so he could do it. But his Supernatural schedule probably wouldn’t allow it.

    • jane4me says:

      Um..no, thanks. Oh my God the fans are already here. Actually hope that they have a couple of great guys in mind that are way better and at the same time really talanted, serious and deep actors.

      • Kathy says:

        Sorry you’re not a fan, or maybe that you think women fans are stupid. Your comment was pretty dismissive of anyone who is a fan of the show or the actors. But the critics (whom we presume to know something about acting) praised his performance of the play. So, yeah, maybe the ‘fans’ know something about good acting and story-telling instead of just admiring someone who’s good looking.

    I like the idea of live plays on TV. I would definitely tune in for this.

  3. S says:

    I would absolutely watch this! This could be phenomenal!

  4. Lyn says:

    Sean Feris in the Tom Cruise role. Scott Patterson filling in for Jack Nicholson.

  5. Nicolas Mancuso says:

    We should get some stars in there who have a Broadway backgroud: how about Raúl Esparza, Sarah Paulson, and Brían F. O’Byrne?

  6. Andrew says:

    Maybe “12 Angry Men” next?

  7. Ryan says:

    Stephen Lang for Jessup!!! He originated the role on stage

  8. Michele says:

    Jensen Ackles or Stephen Amell would be great in Tom Cruise’s role. Not sure about someone to play Jack Nicholson’s role that one always seemed more iconic. Can’t imagine anyone off the bat doing it justice. But I would watch this. I love the movie. Wasn’t interested in the Sound of Music or Peter Pan but it’s commendable that they are trying things live.

  9. TVFan says:

    NBC use Jesse Lee Soffer in there somewhere.

  10. kirads09 says:

    Um. No thanks. Rather watch the Tom Cruise/Nicholson classic.

  11. cp1945 says:

    I like Scott Foley for the Tom Cruise role. When he was Command he had the appeal and the gravitas for the part.

    • Andrea says:

      Yes to Scott Foley or Jesse Lee Sofer! Scott did a military role for The Unit, and I liked that show. Jason Beghe (also of Chicago PD) makes me think of Jessup. I will watch this if it airs.

  12. I hope they don’t change the play too much. It’s a really fantastic show (probably better than the movie) and messing with it too much could spoil things.

  13. Rob Lowe, he performed this in the West in London a few years ago. Was very good in the role too.

  14. Jensen Ackles got great reviews when he did this play I’d love to see him in it.

    “Interestingly, it’s Mr. Ackles who really sets off the fireworks in this A Few Good Men. He’s slick and funny, but human underneath. His stage technique is nigh onto perfect – and this is a guy who’s been working steadily on large and small screens for a decade.*”

    Give him a chance!!

  15. Alyssa says:

    Jensen Ackles!!! Like his wife Danneel said, he already knows all the lines. 😊

  16. Stephanie says:

    I actually think Jensen Ackles would be excellent in the Lt. Kafee role. And he’s done the stage production.

  17. Sintia says:

    Jensen Ackles!

  18. JVal says:

    Jensen Ackles!

  19. Hafsa ateef says:

    Definitely jensen Ackles … He has done it once on stage … N he ll rock his role..

  20. KB says:

    Jensen Ackles. pretty sure people have said this but he did it before and he would be really good but there might be conflicts with him filming Supernatural but he would be great

  21. Jensen Ackles as Lt. Daniel Kaffee AS he already did do the play :)

  22. Vick says:

    jensen Ackles! 😃

  23. Melanie says:

    Jensen Ackles…great actor and he rocks the uniform! I’m married to a marine so I know how important bearing is for this role.

  24. marykapa says:

    Jensen Ackles

  25. marykapa says:

    Jensen Ackles!!!!!

  26. Anna says:

    Jensen Ackles!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. vanessa says:

    I really do think that JENSEN ACKLES will be perfect for Daniel Kaffee. He had done the play before, in 2007 and his wife claims that he still do remember the lines. And his appearance fits the role as well.

  28. Sara says:

    As others have said-Jensen Ackles would be terrific in this role. I so wanted to see him when he did it on-stage in his home town a few years ago, but knew that I’d never get to-so this would be like manna from Heaven for me. He’s a great actor and looks fantastic in the uniform-as another poster mentioned-military bearing is a huge part of wearing the uniform and Jensen has that in spades.

    If his Supernatural schedule will allow it, it should be Jensen Ackles. He was excellent in the stage role!! :D
