God of War voice actor Christopher Judge tweeted a cheeky response to the rumors that Dave Bautista is the lead contender to play Kratos in a live-action adaptation of the video game series. “Don’t get me wrong I think @DaveBautista is awesome but…” he wrote.
This led to an avalanche of comments supporting the producer’s use of Judge instead of Bautista. “If you’re not the one playing Kratos I’m not watching,” the musician tweeted Joshy Singer. “No way. Have him play a villain or a supporting character. You ARE Kratos,” he agreed @PinkRangerLB.
Several fans insisted that while Bautista could be well suited for a supporting role or could work as another video game character, such as Marcus Fenix of “Gears of War” Judge is Kratos and there’s no way they can imagine anyone else playing the role.
Whether Judge ends up playing the role on screen or another actor takes the role, he definitely has what it takes to play the part. Christopher Judge, of course, has acting experience dating back to the 1990s (via IMDb). Aside from physically portraying the role of Kratos via motion capture photography, he has spent years playing Teal’c in the Stargate franchise and has appeared in other series such as NCIS: Los Angeles. So stepping into Kratos’ sandals wouldn’t be a challenge for him at all.
