We put an empty can with a string attached to our ears and heard Mania.com whisper that Clancy Brown, the man who played the formidable and creepy Brother Justin Crowe in HBO’s Carnivale, as well as the heartless Captain Hadley in The Shawshank Redemption, keeps coming up in conversations over at Warner Bros. about who should play Lobo.

Also under discussion, apparently, is just how much CGI should be used for the character.  Brown is also an accomplished voiceover artist, working as Mr. Sinister in Wolverine and the X-Men and Mr. Eugene H. Krabs in SpongeBob Squarepants. As of late you can spot him in the teaser trailer for A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Lobo is an intergalatic bounty-hunter known for getting his man, getting incredibly violent and imbibing a hefty amount of  libation when the mood strikes him.  The film adaptation of the character is being helmed by Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes) working from a script that was (at last report) being penned by Don Payne (Rise of the Silver Surfer). Warner Bros. apparently wants the film to PG-13, which is something of a disappointment – unless they plan to push that rating to the limit.

Seems to me Brown is the perfect choice for a menacing, intimidating anti-hero.  Of course we here at Screen Rant also have our own list of nominees to play Lobo. Can you think of a better choice, Or is Brown a good fit in your opinion?

(Still) no word on when Lobo would hit theaters more powerfully than a locomotive.
