I'd say Peter Weller would make a good powered armour hero as well. And if you're referencing Buckaroo Banzai - you should add in science-hero/gadgeteer as well.

 

Summer Glau - definitely a martial artist, with maybe a side of mentalist as well (y'know - River Tam, but not so crazy). Desolid/invisibility powers would work as well. Or for really weird - River Tam crossed with Cameron Philips :eek:.

 

(I have to mention Summer Glau - it's contractual, y'know :rolleyes:)

 

Jason Flemyng - a science-hero/gadgeteer type ('cos he played Professor Quatermass in the BBC's live remake of The Quatermass Experiment and I reckon you could drop Prof Quatermass and the British Rocket Group wholesale into a Champions campaign.)

Patrick Stewart - Mentalist

Jeff Goldblum - Gadgeteer

Alan Rickman - Mystic (seen Rasputin?)

 

The martial artists are too easy. Tony Jaa. Jet Li.

One of my characters, the Shadow Watcher, is a super-intellectual who carries around a plethora of everyday gadgets (PDA, umbrella, deck of cards, and so forth). I can't imagine anyone playing him but Ted Raimi.

David Leisure ("Joe Isuzu") for some reason always struct me as a natural to play Guy Gardner, so I'll have to say he would be an -- interesting Green Lantern.

Actually the title of that one was "For Him the Bell Tolls." It was this episode, along with "King of Assassins" and "Lyre, Lyre, Hearts on Fire" that showed me that Ted would definitely have the acting chops for playing the Shadow Watcher (though SW's much different from any of these characters).
