Spielberg's "Tintin" Casting Begins

Posted: October 27th, 2007 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
SpielbergSubmit Comment
IGN is reporting that casting began in Los Angeles this week for "Tintin," a movie trilogy collaboration between directors Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg. The comics series, penned by Herge, follows the globe-trotting adventures of young journalist Tintin and his various companions particularly his dog Snowy and his pal the sea-dog Captain Haddock.

Spielberg has stated earlier that the film will be shot entirely with motion-capture technology, which is familiar to Jackson after "King Kong" and the "Lord of the Rings" films but still relatively new to Spielberg. The director said that each filmmaker will shoot 30 days of motion-capture: Spielberg will shoot his in the United States, while Jackson will shoot in New Zealand. Spielberg also said that the special effects will be produced by Jackson's Weta Workshop, but a high-speed internet connection between the two locations will allow the production to receive and process images quickly.

Actors are being auditioned in L.A. for the following roles:

Aristides Silk (British, 60s), a seemingly friendly British or international pickpocket with a memorable face who is balding and has a mustache.
Allen & Ernie (British working class, 30s-40s), two seamen smugglers disguised as workmen.
Barnaby (American, 35-50), a fat and sweaty Interpol inspector who's better at his job than he looks.
Lt. Delacourt (British, 30s-40s), the amiable, pipe-smoking commander of the Afghar outpost who helps Tintin and Captain Haddock.
Max & Gerontium Bird (British, 40s), these brothers' businessman-like appearance bely the fact that they're gun smugglers on the Karaboudjan.
The anxious, nerdy Merrydew (British, 30s), an envious reporter rival of Tintin's.
Mr. Crabtree (British working class, 50s-60s), a stall keeper/vendor at the Old Street Market.
Mrs. Finch (British, 50s), Tintin's landlady with a fierce, beaky face and personality to match.
Nestor (British, 40s-60s), a kindly, efficient butler who works for the Bird brothers and finds himself in troubled circumstances.
Omar Ben Salaad (40s-50s, International), a larger-than-life arms dealer with 14 wives and a commanding voice.
The pilot and co-pilot (international, 30s-40s) of Omar Ben Salaad's seaplane.
Red Rackham (British, 40s-60s), described as tall and thin, larger than life with a sinister edge.
Sakharine (30s-60s, International), a tall, thin and mysterious stranger with a foreign accent that can't be placed.
Ahmed (20s-40s, International), an obedient soldier under Lt. Delacourt's command.
Wetherbuck (40s-50s, British), Tintin's big, bellowing, cigar-chomping editor and mentor.
Thomson & Thompson (British, 35-50s), two ineffective, narrow-minded policemen described as more stupid than mean, moronic yet pretentious, comical and clumsy. They are identical and can only be distinguished by their mustaches.

Wetherbuck, Merrydew, Nestor, Mrs. Finch and Thomson & Thompson may appear in multiple films, while one actor could play both Thomson & Thompson.
