When I first heard of Johann Urb was going to play Leon in the movie, I actually wasn't sure about it. Although he had the looks, including the hairstyle, I wasn't sure if he was right for the role. Since I've only seen him in 2012 and The Hottie and The Nottie. Yesterday, I saw a clip of him as Owen Young in Small Gods on YouTube, after seeing him in that I relised Paul Anderson made the right decision in casting him as Leon in RE: Retribution! In that clip, he looked, acted, sounded exactly like Leon. Even the same type of clothes, I was actually convinced he was Leon S. Kennedy from Resident Evil. After watching him in that, I actually think he'd be better than Jensen Ackles would of been!

His name is Johann Urb, well done to Paul Anderson! He made the right decision in casting him as Leon, though Jensen Ackles would of been good too. This guy from 2012 will be alot better for certain. Question. Am I the only one who thinks Dougray Scott from Mission Impossible 2 and Perfect Creature should be Albert Wesker in future Resident Evil Movies?

Dougray Scott should be the new Albert Wesker. He's got the looks, voice, age range and attitude to portray the character and make it convincing. Besides, he made an awesome bad guy in Mission Impossible 2, and was Mike Whittier in Hitman. Which is also another movie based on a video-game!

I also think Ralph Fiennes or Mark Strong should play Nicholai Ginovaef, and Daniel Bruhl or Taylor Kitsch as Carlos Oliveira. Gerard Depardieu is perfect for the role of Mikhail Victor.

Message to Paul Anderson and CAPCOM, I just want to say you made the right choice in casting Johann Urb as Leon S. Kennedy. He made a fantastic Leon, and he certainly pulled off the role brilliantly, he certainly convinced me he was Leon. After seeing Johann play Leon in Resident Evil Retribution, and seeing him play Owen in Small Gods, I feel he was a lot better than Jensen Ackles would of been. I can't really see Jensen as Leon, but I can definately see him do a good Wesker though. Which is why I feel if they decide to do reboots of the Resident Evil Movies. I feel Johann Urb should play Leon again in an RE2 Movie, RECVX (Cameo), RE4 and RE6 Movie. I'm still thinking of Dougray Scott as Albert Wesker, he's got everything about Albert Wesker about him.
