Judge DreddPopular rumor is that the lead role for the new 'Judge Dredd' movie will be offered to Karl Urban, best known to the movie-going public as Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy in the 'Star Trek' 2009 relaunch. Would he be better or worse than Sylvester Stallone? Should he be offered the part, we'll certainly find out.

Despite the crap quality of the 90's flick, I actually thought Stallone was a good casting choice. He's got the right kind of chin for it. On the other hand, Urban is a bit of a geek god having been in such flicks (other than 'Star Trek') as 'Lord of the Rings' and the big screen version of 'Doom.' He's a pretty flexible actor and could surprise everyone.

Urban also got a decent chin in his own right and he has to given that one of the stipulations of the new movie is that Dredd never removes his helmet.
