Live-Action TF2 Casting: Heavy

Oleg Prudius (a.k.a. Vladimir Kozlov), like Randy Couture, has lots of sports and martial arts experience that would be valuable in playing Heavy. He’s Ukranian, not Russian, but he spent his wrestling career playing a Russian heel character. I think he’s got the schtick down. Oh, and did I mention that he’s 6'5"? (That’s 1.96 m for everyone else in the world.)

Okay so you know my boy Vladimir Kozlov (amazing choice btw I am on board) so I gotta ask: what's your opinion of Paul Wight (The Big Show) in his younger days as a Heavy? He's got the nose for sure.

Yeah, I mean, I guess? My picks aren’t necessarily the absolute 100% best fits of all time for their chosen parts, just the ones I know of who I think would be great if you were to start shooting a live-action TF2, like, next week.

Now that I think about it, I’d be super interested to see who people think would’ve played them if they’d made a TF2 movie in the late 60s-early 70s. I’m afraid I’m all researched out at the moment, though…
