12 Angry Men 2.0 (Casting suggestions)

I paid attention to the movie, I swear, but while I watched the 12 jurors deliberate and discuss, I couldn’t help but start to wonder who would play them if 12 Angry Men was remade in this decade. Here are my casting suggestions. I based my choices in physical resemblance (for some) and/or character traits. Please comment if you agree (or don’t) with my picks 🙂

Juror # 1 (played in the 1957 movie by Martin Balsam) 

2011 version: Mark Ruffalo

Juror # 2 (played in the 1957 movie by John Fielder)

2011 version: Neil Patrick Harris

2011 version: Robert Downey Jr. 

Juror # 4 (played in the 1957 movie by E.G. Marshall)

Or, based only on looks, then Bryan Cranston:
