Who Should Play...?

Back in my teens and twenties, like many comics fans, I often thought about what actors should play my favorite comics characters. Here's some art I recently did depicting my choices from back then in the roles I thought they were meant for:

Jack Lord as Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD. I always thought Lord looked a lot like Steranko's version of the character.  

Roger Smith as Hal Jordan, the Silver Age Green Lantern. Gil Kane is said to have based Jordan's features on Paul Newman, but I think Smith is a close match as well.

Jim Jensen wasn't an actor--he was the news anchor for WCBS-TV in New York City. But, to me, he looked just like Jack Kirby's version of Reed Richards, Mr. Fantastic...and maybe even a little more like John Byrne's version. Do you have any actors or actresses you think should have been the choice to play a favorite character?
