Let's have a bit of fun.  Cast "bad" but hopefully inspired choices for movies that are well-known, and hopefully we can compare notes.  You need not list every part.

 

Example: The Hobbit Trilogy

 

Bilbo Baggins - Charlie Chaplain
12 dwarves - the Keystone Kops
Gandalf - David Niven
Thorin Oakenshield - Richard Burton
Smaug - Boris Karloff
Gollum - Peter Lorre
The Elf King (Thranduil) - Basil Rathbone
Bard the Bowman - Errol Flynn
Elrond - Fred Astaire
Mayor of Laketown - Charles Laughton
Bert, Tom, and William (the Trolls) - The Three Stooges
Dain Ironfoot - Edward G. Robinson

 

So, on to you folks.  To start you off, either cast your own bad-but-inspired choices in The Hobbit Trilogy, or The Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

Can totally picture Peter Lorre as Golum. Thank you for that giggle. 

Was gonna say, he'd be a natural.  Plus, Boris Karloff as Smaug would have been much more menacing, IMO.

 

....um, Scatman Crothers as Legolas?  Yes?  No?  Too far too soon?

That...is crazy, and inspired.  It's almost like you're starting to make a The Wiz version of Lord of the Rings.  😁

Not sure who would fill out the rest of the cast, but Rowan Atkinson as Iron Man and Jack Black and Captain America would make for a questionable Avengers remake/reboot.

But which Rowan Atkinson?  If you're talking about Mr. Bean, sure, but 4th season Blackadder (excuse me - series, not season) would just be a slightly more ironic and sarcastic Robert Downey Jr.

I totally see WWI Blackadder as Tony Stark. 👍

 

 

Muppets cast:  bad but inspired in the roles?

 

Sam the American Eagle as, what else?...Captain America (Steve Rogers version)

Gonzo as Ironthingy, er, Ironman.  Which makes Camilla Chicken as Pepper Pots

Miss Piggy as Scarlet Witch, which makes Kermit as Vision, and Link Hogthrob as Quicksilver

Janice as Black Widow

Animal as Hulk, Benson Honeydew as Bruce Banner

Skeeter as Hawkeye

Fozzie Bear as Antman

Rowlf the Dog as Black Panther

Pepe the King Prawn as Thor, okay?

Rizzo the Rat as Falcon

Beaker as Winter Soldier

Crazy Harry as Loki

Sweetums as Nick Fury
