Uh…shouldn't we at least have access to the game before making this decision?

It's not surprising that Ubisoft wants to turn their new IP Watch Dogs into a movie. That's just par for the course these days.

But what is moderately surprising is that the publisher is asking gamers who should play protagonist Aiden Pearce in the film. The list holds some big star power: Tobey Maguire, Henry Cavill, Ryan Gosling, Paul Walker, Tom Cruise, Clive Owen, Robert Downey Jr., Andrew Garfield, Brad Pitt and Edward Norton. Right now, Cruise has the lead at 30% while Edward Norton has 21% of the vote and Downey Jr. has 20%. Personally, I'd go with either Norton or Owen, based on what I know of Pearce.

Ubisoft is into the movie thing lately. They've got films in the works for Far Cry , Assassin's Creed , Splinter Cell and Ghost Recon as well. But what are the chances of any of them turning out decent…? Well, anyway, I'll still want to play Watch Dogs before deciding on a lead actor.

It bothers me that we're talking about a movie for an unproven game.

I have played a hands on demo of Watchdogs and gotta say this game is gonna kick ass 7 days till Sunday, but if they made a movie I'd watch it just along as it is in par with the game, this game is really fun and the graphics really kick ass best I've seen in a long time

Henry Cavill.

from what we have seen of Aiden I think Cavill would be a perfect fit.

I think (Mr. Bean) Rowan Sebastian Atkinson should play his role. j/k!

Honestly we do not know enough about his character to fairly vote for an actor. The polls are mostly going to get people to simply vote for their favorite actor.

Maybe after the game comes out we may be able to make more informed choice.
