I really liked Hitman with Tim Olyphant in it. I'm not sure about Paul Walker and if he can do the part justice but I guess all I can do is wait and see.

Any idea of how does Paul look with the agent 47 look?

I can see him with a shaved head but he doesn't have those eyes like Olyphant has and I really don't think he can pull it off as well either.

Olyphont was pretty good as Agent 47 in the first movie.

Paul Walker's a good actor, but i just don't see him being a fit for this role.
he comes across as more of a surfer dude type than the, well, less laid back character of the hitman.

but i'll reserve final judgement till i see the movie.

You guys praising the Olyphant Hitman film obviously are not fans of the game series. Otherwise you would hate it.

Yeah, it was an un-Hitman-ish as they come.

I don't hate Walker but I don't see this as a good fit.

Why can't Timothy Olyphant reprise his role as Agent 47?1
Ah nevermind, turns out it'
s a reboot.

But Pual Walker??? the mental imagery... it clashes soo hard.
