Poll: The Next Conan?

Who would you like to see play Conan in a new Conan movie? Click on the name in the poll box to the right. If you’d like information/photos on any of the candidates, I’ve linked their names to their IMDB biographies:

Arnold Schwarzengger
Dwayne Johnson (The Rock)
Michael Bailey Smith
Roland Kickinger

Although this makes Conan purists cringe, I think Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) would make a great Conan. His acting skills are better than many give him credit for (and much better than Arnold’s). He’s in fantastic condition and very athletic. He’s got the look as well. Arnold is getting a bit old for this sort of thing, unless you went with a King Conan movie, which I think would be a mistake. Michael Bailey Smith came in second to Arnold on the Conan forum’s poll, but he’s just shy of 50 years old as well. Roland Kickinger looks to be an interesting possibility, but can he act, and is he athletic enough?
