Pazu - Fred Tatasciore
Saito - Nolan North
Borma - David Sobolov
Ishikawa - Paul Eiding
Tachikoma - Tara Strong, Kari Wahlgren, Amanda Troop, Laura Bailey
Aoi/Laughing Man - Steve Blum (Correct me if they're not the same character)
Operator - Kari Wahlgren
Kubota - Jim Miskerman
Azuma - Troy Baker
Sano - Gwendoline Yeo

Supporting Cast - Tara Strong, John Dimaggio, Cree Summer, Phil Lamarr, Jennifer Hale, Laura Bailey, Kevin Michael Richardson, Matthew Mercer, Dee Bradley Baker, Grey Delisle, Travis Willingham, Brian Bloom, Eric Bauza, Ariel Winter, Zack Callison, Stuart Allen, Josh Keaton, Crispen Freeman, Michael J. Gough, Debra Wilson

Special Guests: Ron Perlman, Rosario Dawson, Dwight Schultz, JK Simmons, David Tennett, Clancy Brown, Nathan Fillion, Gina Davis, Marķa Canals Barrera, Ketih David, Morena Baracarin, Scott Porter

I like Troodon2's a lot.

However, here's mine from the film.

Batou: Keith David
Motoko: Claudia Black
Togusa: Nolan North
Daisuke Aramaki: Efrem Zimbalist Jr. lol

All I recognize from the film.

Sigh, RIP Efrem. I think he would have made a great Daisuke.

Anyway, Keith David... might be an interesting cast.

(I also updated the cast and added some celebrity guests.)

As usual, you seem to be going by the established dub as source material - which is just perfect here, however I am curious that you didn't replace the VA's with younger ones similar to the Japanese for Arise.

Also, I like Brian but he isn't exactly a great choice for Batou. Marc Gibbon or Marc Acheson would be much better.

Okay, so here's my cast for the original 1995 movie.

Ron Perlman - Batou
Marina Sirtis - Motoko
Ed Asner - Daisuke
Tim Daily - Togusa
Malcom McDowell - Project 2501/ The Puppet Master

Additional Voices: Frank Welker, Corey Burton, Tress MacNeille, Jim Cummings, Rob Paulsen, Candi Milo, Carlos Alazraqui, Jeff Bennett, Lauren Tom, Nancy Cartwright, Michael Bell, Gregg Berger

Voice Director(s): Jamie Thomason and Jack Fletcher

This is incredibly good. Altho & i know we've talked about this, but I think KMR (or Clancy Brown!) would have been a great voice for Batou. I keep wanting to use cartoon actors as that's how it was done in Japan (whereas Ghibli films use live-actors+ cartoon VA's on the side, ala Disney films).

Maybe Jim Cummings as Aramaki?

Yeah, but I still like to add tv/celeb actors to mix things up a bit, since that's practically the norm here in the US. But since you brought mentioned it (and Jim Cummings as Daisuke) here's an alternate cast for the 2004 tv series made up of strict voice acting talent.

Batou - Kevin Michael Richardson
Motoko Kusangi - Jennifer Hale
Togusa - Nolan North
Daisuke Aramaki - Jim Cummings
Pazu - John Dimaggio
Saito - Dee Bradley Baker
Borma - David Sobolov
Ishikawa - Fred Tatasciore
Tachikoma - Tara Strong, Kari Wahlgren, Grey Delisle, Jessica Dicicco
Aoi/Laughing Man - Steve Blum (Correct me if they're not the same character)
Operator - Kari Wahlgren
Kubota - Bob Joles
Azuma - Robin Atkin Downes
Sano - Gwendoline Yeo

I think Corey Burton could work as The Puppet Master...
