To quote a Drive-By Truckers song: "Steve McQueen, the coolest Goddamn motherfucker on the silver screen." There isn't anyone alive who could come near recapturing Steve McQueen's particular brand of charisma. Men like Steve McQueen—or Paul Newman, for that matter—just don't exist in Hollywood anymore.

If they cast anyone even remotely resembling Paul Walker to play Bullitt, I will booze up and riot.

Oh my god. I think I just almost swallowed my tongue and choked to death during the seizure induced by you even mentioning Paul Walker within the realm of possibilities to play Bullitt.

Thankfully, I think he may be considered too young still. Of course, I'm also sure he's on some preliminary casting list.

Eww.

You hit the nail on the head. Don't remake great films. There are plenty of very flawed films with interesting ideas. Remake those. Leave Bullitt alone

From here I can almost SMELL them casting Mark Walberg in this clunker... oh why why why.....

Is it just me... or is there an acute shortage of American actors who are credible in "tough-guy-hero" roles?

There are plenty of guys who are passable-to-good actors, but just don't convince in the macho, grown-up-male department. They have this childlike, unfinished quality... weak chins, babyfat on smooth faces, reedy voices, teenager postures. You know... Paul Walker clones.

Next to someone like Lee Marvin (or Steve MqQueen for that matter), all those guys look like complete wimps. (Perhaps too much Botox floats in Hollywood's veins these days???)

In the works is the nephew of Frank Bullitt in Boston as a Massachusetts Police officer driving his Uncle's 1968 Mustang GT .
