To be honest, hopefully none of them but out of those five Frank Grillo.

I´ve yet to see the perfect fit for the role

I agree... the list is terrible. I like Grillo but he's already crossbones. Seeing him in The Purge: Anarchy made me think he could pull off the role of The Punisher... but no. He's a little too friendly looking.

After seeing Dredd, I'd definitely go with Karl Urban. He showed that he can respect the source material in Dredd (especially by not ever taking off the helmet)... I think if they ever did a movie or TV show, Urban would be a great fit. He can pull off a young (late 30's, early 40's) Frank Castle in the beginning stages of his career.

Either way, whomever they get, I just hope the guy is big and muscular. Frank Castle has to go fist to fist with the likes of Daredevil, Wolverine, Cap America, etc... he needs to look like he is physically able to fight them and win. I might even make a vote for Mickey Rourke (if he can get into The Wrestler or Iron Man 2 shape again). He can pull off an old MAX Frank Castle PERFECTLY!

After Watching Hell On Wheels, I think Anson Mount would absolutely nail the role. He's got the look, the tough but quiet speech.

The guy who played Crossbones in Winter Soldier would have been perfect for the role.
