Interesting choices.

I know you were probably going off the book's cast and not the Disney one, but if you had to pick actors for King Louie, who would you pick?

Shere Khan - Troy Baker
Father Wolf - Nolan North
Raksha - Jennifer Hale
Akela - Dwight Schultz
Kaa - Dee Bradley Baker
Colonel Hathi - JB Blanc
Grey Brother - Matthew Mercer
Tabaqui - Michael J. Gough
Mussua and her husband - Grey Delisle and Phil Lamarr
Buldeo - John Dimaggio

Additional Voices - Dee Bradley Baker, Eric Bauza, Josh Keaton, Neil Kaplan, Kari Wahlgren, Laura Bailey, Travis Willingham, Michael Gough, Steve Blum, Ashley Burch, Jeff Bennett, Sam Riegel, Khary Payton, Rob Paulsen, Nika Futterman

Voice Director - JB Blanc

I honestly think Fred and Phil could work as the Disney versions of Baloo and Bagheera, too.

I have ideas for casting choices I could see working for future "Jungle Book" adaptations, based on both the original book and the Disney movie.

Kipling Version:
- Steve Blum as Bagheera
- Clancy Brown as Shere Khan
- Fred Tatasciore as Baloo
- Keith David as Kaa
- Cree Summer as Raksha
- Charlie Adler as Tabaqui
- Patrick Stewart as Hathi

Disney Version:
- Kevin Michael Richardson as Baloo
- Liam Neeson as Bagheera
- Jeremy Irons as Shere Khan
- Phil LaMarr as King Louie
- Andy Serkis as Kaa
- Clancy Brown as Colonel Hathi

I think Steve and Clancy could work pretty well as the Disney versions, too.

True, Clancy I can see working well playing an animated version of the recent live-action version voiced by Idris Elba. If it was supposed to be like the original animated version voiced by George Sanders, then I would probably use Jeremy Irons.

Going for more of a composite approach with this take on The Jungle Book; some characters (i.e. Baloo) may be influenced also by their Disney personalities--

Baloo; Kevin Michael Richardson (Marvin Hirston/Roadblock, G.I. Joe: Renegades)
Bagheera: Jason Isaacs (Sinestro, Green Lantern: Emerald Knights)
Shere Khan: Jonathan Adams (Razorpaw, Transformers: Robots in Disguise)
Akela: Fred Tatasciore (Qui-Gon Jinn, Star Wars: Clone Wars)
Father Wolf: George Newbern (Clark Kent/Superman, Justice League)
Raksha: Vanessa Marshall (Hera Syndulla, Star Wars Rebels)
Kaa: Steve Blum (Orochimaru, Naruto) or Grey DeLisle (Azula, Avatar: The Last Airbender)
Colonel Hathi: Clancy Brown (...just... Clancy Brown, really...)
Grey Brother: Josh Keaton (Jak, Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier)
Tabaqui: Dee Bradley Baker (Kaynar, ThunderCats 2011)

Rikki-Tiki-Tavi: Jesse McCartney (Ventus, Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep)
Nag: Charlie Adler (Cobra Commander, G.I. Joe: Resolute)
Nagaina: Nika Futterman (Hela, The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes)

You know I would actually like to see someone cast Baloo with an LA actor who is neither Kevin Michael Richardson or Fred Tatasciore. Because that's the most common cast in the thread.

I suppose John Dimaggio would do, even if that to might be typecast-ish, and I'd prefer him as Khan.
