Who to cast in the role of Big Ben Donovan?   :)

Three candidates for Big Ben Donovan

Ken Norton (He played in Drumm and Mandingo)
Bubba Smith
Rosey Grier

Honorable Mention: Mean Joe Green

All good choices, especially Rosey, who resembles the character more closely.

 :) Rosey would be a good choice, except.....I see him as too friendly of a guy too.

Art Lund who played the corrupt cop in Black Ceasar could play Rackham.

Don't know about Commanche, but Shades? Either Carl Lee or how about this guy:

Bumping this back up...

I might be the only one who thinks this, but didn't Diamondback (at least in issue 2 of HERO FOR HIRE) kinda resemble Robert Guillaume?
