I still "hear" Paul Frees as the voice Ben Grimm, and Ted Cassidy as Galactus.

Bleeech, not only do I NOT like the ideas of Krasinski or Keanu, I can easily see Marvel casting either one of them, anyway.  Neither, to me, has the intellectual gravitas that the character of Reed Richards needs.

The only one who currently makes any sense to me is Patrick Wilson (great pick Stephen!)... His turns in the CONJURING films gives a good idea of where he could take Mr. Fantastic.

Shaun,

Isn't Patrick Wilson a blond?

This has been bugging me and I have considered a tonne of actors and haven't changed my mind that this would be a bugger to cast.

One I think would work would be Jeremy Sisto as Ben Grimm.

For Reed - Andrew Lincoln, Neil Patrick Harris or Matthew Morrison. John Krasinski doesn't fit with me as Reed at all, his main qualification seems to be that he's married to an actress who occasionally has blond hair

IMO Zac Efron is too old to play Johnny, it needs to be a much younger person. There is an actor on the TV series This is Us called Logan Shroyer who certainly looks the part, but like Tom Holland there are plenty of good young teen and post teen actors around (most of them under contract to Disney).

Sue is tricky as there are plenty of good actresses who look the part, Margot Robbie would be great, but doubtful she would be interest/available, but either Yvonne Strahovski who starred in Chuck or Julianne Hough are my choices.

For Ben, well theoretically this should be largely voice only (unless Marvel decide on another origin story) and given that maybe someone like Kevin James (don't all shout at once!!, and if you're throwing stuff throw money).

They have yet to cast an actual blonde as Sue or a teen (or able to play a teen) for Johnny--unless you count Roger Corman's version!

Because, apparently, there are no blonde actresses or young guy actors in Hollywood.

Liev seems a bit too old for Ben Grimm, but I'll admit, David... that's a solid-looking cast right there!

Austin Butler was who I was looking at for Johnny, as well.

Austin Butler is a former Disney kid.  
He is PERFECT for Johnny Storm to me.

Lievís voice alone is perfect for Ben.   His mocap acting should be amazing as Thing.

Ben Grimm.  Tough. Smart. Former football player and pilot....
