Although the 2002 and 2004 films were enjoyable, and have become somewhat of a guilty favorite, they weren’t technically the best…So I’d love to see a new attempt at a live-action Scooby Doo film! WB plans to make an animated cinematic-type universe reboot for Scooby Doo, but I think it’d be fun to see another (better) attempt at a live-action. Perhaps instead of calling it Scooby Doo, Mystery Inc would better suit. But who should play the roles? Let’s fan-cast!
Fred “Freddy” Jones
Fred isn’t too hard to fan cast, which becomes a problem when trying to narrow it down. Like each character, whoever cast should be able to act like Fred. He doesn’t necessarily need to be blonde but there are always hair dye/wigs.
Each member should be in their teens/early 20s. I don’t know if a live-action film would actually follow them in high school, however. Whatever they do, they should be young. For Daphne, I tried to look for actresses that can not only pull off the role of Daphne, but also has similar features. It’s easier if the actress already has red hair but there are such things as hair dye or wigs.
Velma should be a bit shorter than Daphne. Again, hair can be fixed with a wig/hair dye or cut. Like the rest of the gang, I looked for actors who can pull off the role of Velma. Velma has a recognizable/distinct voice, so the actress would need to be able to do that as well.
(Norville) Shaggy Rogers
Shaggy is a bit hard to fan-cast but as long as the actual actor cast is lanky, tall, and can pull off the “Scooby Doo where are you?” I’m good.
Frank Welker should continue doing the voice of Scooby Doo in my opinion! So I’ll just leave the fan-cast for Scooby’s voice blank…

Here are my top picks!
I could go on and on about why I chose these 4 but I’ll keep it simple – I think they can pull off the characters.
