Hugh Laurie as everyone. Failing that Ian McKellen as either Malfurion/Medivh. Also Danny DeVito as Mekkatorque

Ian McKellen should be Genn Greymane imo :-)

"Danny DeVito as Mekkatorque"YES, a thousand times yes!

Cast Danny DeVito oompaloompa style as all of the gnomes! And then the little person from Game of Thrones as all of the goblins.

When I thought of Mekkatorque, I thought of Steve Buscemi, actually. Maybe it's because I remember him best from "Armageddon" and his nutty, super-genius but rather off-kilter character.

I don't know about DeVito as a gnome; I like him a lot, but he always has a certain unctuousness about him; kind of a sleazy vibe that doesn't really fit gnomes well. Personally, I'd rather see him as Gallywix.

Actually, I'd say Ian McKellen as Cairne Bloodhoof, but there'd just be so much cgi involved with that.As for Mekkatorque, heck, why not Wallace Shawn?

I honestly wasn't interested in recycling the same old actors from LotR and other well known names in fantasy and sci-fi.As for Buscemi I did actually consider him for Mekkatorque before Dafoe, the reason I didn't cast him is I checked every actor with a google image search + 2011/2010. Buscemi is aging into a corpse and I wanted to see an actor who had a little more life left in his face while still being very unusual.

I love DeVito in any movie but his natural voice and persona fit more with the goblins than with gnomes sadly. Now if they enhanced his voice to sound all high pitched and bubbly that would be a dif story but if they did that they might as well get anyone for the part.
