-CLOUD STRIFE-

His resume with "Chronicle" and "A Place beyond the Pines" and even Harry Osborne in "Spiderman 2" tells me he can handle Cloud, who is at first cocky then as the story progresses becomes unsure of his identity. Plus he has the slender build perfect for Cloud.

2. Emile Hirsch

Actor | Into the Wild

Emile Davenport Hirsch was born in Palms, California, to Margaret Esther (Davenport), a teacher and visual artist, and David M. Hirsch, an entrepreneur and producer. He grew up in Los Angeles and Santa Fe, New Mexico, and having been introduced to acting while still at school, he got his first ...

-CLOUD STRIFE-

When he bleached his hair for "Lords of Dogstown" plus his great acting ability and his built/size make me believe he's perfect for "Cloud".

-AERITH-

She was amazing in "Whiplash". I felt so sorry for her in the film and wanted to see more of her. She has a quiet gravitas that IMO is essential for Aerith.

5. Jane Levy

Jane Levy was born on December 29, 1989 in Los Angeles County, California, USA as Jane Colburn Levy. She is an actress, known for Evil Dead (2013), Suburgatory (2011) and Don't Breathe (2016). She was previously married to Jaime Freitas.

-AERITH/TIFA-

Very charming in the short-lived comedy series "Suburgatory. She was great as headstrong Rockie in "Don't Breathe". She would be great as Aerith or Tifa

6. Chloe Bennet

Actress | Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Chloe Bennet is an American actress and singer. She is best know for the ABC Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Bennet was born Chloe Wang in Chicago, Illinois. Her father is Han Chinese and her mother is Caucasian American.

At 15, she moved to China to pursue a singing career under her birth name, ...

-AERITH/TIFA-

In season 1 of "Agents of Shield" she basically played a hacker version of Aerith, with no real combat skills. But in season 2, her character turned into a badass. I can see her being the Ronda Rousey-type brawler known as "Tifa".

7. Anna Kendrick

Actress | Up in the Air

Anna Kendrick was born in Portland, Maine, to Janice (Cooke), an accountant, and William Kendrick, a teacher. She has an older brother, Michael Cooke Kendrick, who has also acted. She is of English, Irish, and Scottish descent.

-AERITH GAINSBOROUGH-

She just has that gravitas that when she's gone you feel her absence.

Actress | Deepwater Horizon

Named the "next big thing" and one of the "top 35 Latinos under 35," by The Hollywood Reporter, Gina Rodriguez's profile has been rising steadily since her breakout performance as the titular character in FILLY BROWN during the Sundance Film Festival in 2012.

-AERITH/TIFA-

Makes you love her in "Jane the Virgin" and fearless in "Filly Brown" makes her perfect for either.

9. Tatiana Maslany

-AERITH/TIFA-

She is so versatile on Orphan Black. She would be amazing in either role of Tifa or Aerith, she'll make an impact either way.

Actress | Excision

AnnaLynne McCord is an American actress, writer, director and former model. Known for playing vixen-type roles. McCord first gained prominence in 2007 as the scheming Eden Lord on the FX television series Nip/Tuck (2003), and as the pampered Loren Wakefield on the MyNetworkTV telenovela American ...

-AERITH-

It's her look mainly, physically, IMO, she resembles Aerith. I'd like to see her act outside of her "high school cheerleader" roles.

11. Alexander Skarsgård

Alexander Johan Hjalmar Skarsgård was born in Stockholm, Sweden and is the eldest son of famed actor Stellan Skarsgård. Among his siblings are actors Gustaf Skarsgård, Bill Skarsgård, and Valter Skarsgård. For most of his formative years, his father was an acclaimed actor in Europe but had not yet ...

-SEPHIROTH-

Sephiroth is the Achillies in the world of FF7, the one everyone idolizes to be in that world but also fear his power. Skarsgard has played this type character on "True Blood" and he would be amazing as the charismatic antagonist of FF7.

12. Brad Pitt

Actor | Mr. & Mrs. Smith

An actor and producer known as much for his versatility as he is for his handsome face, Golden Globe-winner Brad Pitt's most widely recognized role may be Tyler Durden in Fight Club (1999). However, his portrayals of Billy Beane in Moneyball (2011), and Rusty Ryan in the remake of Ocean's Eleven (...

-SEPHIROTH-

I always seen Sephiroth as "the" Achilles of the FF7 with a hint of Tyler Durden. Brad Pitt can definitely walk that fine line of fallen-turncoat hero/the epitome of pure ID.

13. Leonardo DiCaprio

Actor | Inception

Few actors in the world have had a career quite as diverse as Leonardo DiCaprio's. DiCaprio has gone from relatively humble beginnings, as a supporting cast member of the sitcom Growing Pains (1985) and low budget horror movies, such as Critters 3 (1991), to a major teenage heartthrob in the 1990s,...

-SEPHIROTH-

-TIFA-

She was good Percy Jackson believable as a badass heroine. After watching True Detective we know she has the body-type as well. She would make a great Tifa.

Lyndsy competed in the International Modeling & Talent Association, where she was recognized as the second runner-up for "Young Miss Dancer of the Year" and was the first runner-up for...

Scott Caan is the son of tough guy actor James Caan. While it is obvious that he admires tough method actors like Marlon Brando and Sean Penn, Scott also has a strong egalitarian streak, evidenced by his reasoning for baring his body in films. He is quoted as saying that originally only the women ...

He's just a natural at being a lovable sarcastic *beep*
