I must admit Keither does a great job in 24, but as Harry? Not too sure.

From Darkhorizons.com:

Quote
Dirty Harry
Currently in Australia to promote "Walking Tall", Dwayne Johnson has been doing the local press rounds and talk of a potential future remake came up - the classic Clint Eastwood cop drama "Dirty Harry". Speaking with Triple M Radio, Johnson said the classic film is "ripe for a remake", and that it is one of his favourite films of all time. He would of course play Harry Callahan.

(Shakes head at Johnson) Ripe for a remake? Eesh. Rocky, please stay away from this.

Hi Guys;

As far as a remake of Dirty Harry, am i surprised??..No. I'm probably one of the few Eastwood fans who felt Eastwood should have stopped after Magnum Force. Let's face it hollywood has become a panorama of stupidity recycled entertainment lately. If you think thats bad, check this out ..there is actually a remake of ' Play Misty For Me' starring Will Smith thats been on the drawing boards for the past few years. Gee, I can hardly wait.
AND GALS PLEASE!

If The Rock did the DH remake it would be full of techno garbage.  The movie would be full of violence and butt-kicking scenes.  Sure Harry kicked butt, though he did it with STYLE!

My vote:  Two Thumbs Down

For many years, I always thought the only other actor who could be cool enough to play Dirty Harry was "Hawaii Five-O's" Jack Lord.

He had the look, the magnetism & ability to play the role somewhat similar to Clint, but to a lesser degree.

Let's face it, there is NOBODY in movie history that would come close to portraying DH with the same combination of style & grit as Clint.

The late Mr. Lord would probably have come the closest, but that was many years ago when he was younger and, of course, still with us.

I really can't think of anyone among today's sad collection of what passes for "movie stars" who could play the role without being laughed out of the theaters.
