Who do you think could play The Punisher? So far, we have had three different Punisher movies and none of the have been very successful. Although, of those movies, Thomas Jane has had the most fans and support of being recast, most likely because of his short film "Dirty Laundry" and because he himself is a huge fan of the character.

I myself couldn't agree more. Who do you think could play The Punisher?

Frank Grillo - Too bad he already plays Crossbones. He would have been a perfect Punisher.

And my #1 choice. Aden Young from RECTIFY. Watch him on that show. He's ana amazing actor and he got the rough look and build for Punisher.

Ideally, I'd have liked to see Frank Grillo take the role on, but I'd also love to see Thomas Jane reprise.

Maybe Karl Urban?

Huh. This never would've crossed my mind, but I can definitely see it.

Thomas Jane is my number one pick. I love when actors actually love the characters they play. It adds a lot to the preformance in my opinion. Thomas Jane IS the PUNISHER!

After watching Hell On Wheels, I have to say Anson Mount would make a terrific Frank Castle.
