The Mad Trapper
I Would have to choose Chuck Norris for the part of Albert Johnson. Chuck is well built and can portray a tough man very well. Chuck has the endurance and could easily pull off being a quite, mysterious man who tests his strength to the fullest.
Who else would be able to survive out in the freezing cold for fifty days, climb mountains in blizzards, survive explosions and evade a manhunt for as long as Albert Johnson. The only problem with chuck being the mad trapper is Chuck Norris doesn’t run away.
I believe that Tom Cruise would be a great actor for Spike Millen. Tom is well built and can portray the attitude of not giving up . Spike led the manhunt and Tom can easily take the roll of a leader. Tom has acted in movies like Mission Impossible and War of the Worlds.
“The autumn sun was almost gone behind the Richardson Mountains. Its last light flamed against an underbelly of clouds, polished the water of the Peel River into uneasy boils of glistening black and vivid, almost bloody, red. Distant sounds drifted by: geese flying south, water lapping against rocks, but over all lay the immense Arctic silence of the coming winter.” Pg. 11
“The rim of the thirty-minute winter sun emerged on the south horizon sometimes inside an enormous halo of smudged, flaming light; sometimes a cross stretches through and across the entire circle, or, like today, two brilliant repetitions of the sun itself stood one on either side of the bands of the cross with the air so cold it seemed to hang in silver crystals.” Pg. 75
“The glazed surface of the snow was rushing at them; May’s knees held the plane relentlessly with its dive centered on Johnson. Snardon was bolted rigid in his seat, his mouth a hole of soundless terror.” Pg. 186
“The ice split. One great sheet of thin ice heaving both up and down as Thompson staggered, lost his balance in and immense boil of black water bursting up around him and he fell, head and shoulders plunging down and then his snowshoes gesturing desperately for an instant, and everything gone.” Pg. 121
“When the blizzard staggered, momentarily eddied into daylight and, as it seemed, caught its breath, he would sometimes glance up to see the peaks about him: the enormous vista of groaning, moving snow, the ravines and the ice-blasted pyramids that howled dolefully as the blizzard shook itself and howled, howled.” Pg. 144
