Actor line-up: Derek de Lint, Sergio Hasselbaink, and more!

by - 2012/05/01 52 Comments Filming, Production

It took a while to get everyone confirmed! Here’s the line-up:

  • Derek de Lint, “Old Thom”. One of the few Dutch actors with a lot of international film experience
  • Sergio Hasselbaink, “Barly”. He’s a new talent here, former dancer/skater, famous for his lead role in “Sonny Boy”.
  • Rogier Schippers, “Captain”. Rogier is very well known as theatre & TV series actor in the Netherlands.
  • Chris Haley, “Tech Head”. Chris is Pixel Pusher at JEHProductions. He was selected after a wonderful youtube audition!
  • Jody Bhe, “Djenghis”. She’s an experienced musical actress, currently doing Miss Saigon.
  • Vanja Rukavina, “Thom” and Denise Rebergen, “Celia” were casted via auditions at Kemna Casting. Excellent picks from our casting agent Houdijn Beekhuis!

Extra’s for scientists fighting with robots: Daan van ‘t Einde (Blenderhead audition), Keir Meirle (libmv dev), Campbell Barton (Blender dev). Hippie: Jeremy Davidson.

    So which character is Ton playing? :D

  2. Aaron says:


    Oh, will the film be in Dutch with subtitles, or will it be English? :)

  4. Gianmichele says:

    Ohhhh Campbell and Jeremy…way to go guys :D

  5. Tadd says:

    I was very close to submitting for this .. but then I realized I’d be up against talent and I needed to be in Amsterdam … one of these things posed a problem. I’ll let you decide which.

  6. Daan says:

    Look like awesome leads! :)

  7. Davis says:

    I’m crazy excited! :D The actors look awesome!

  8. awsome i +1 to Ton having a cameo….or maybe the rest of the crew showing up here and there

    >>”Hippie: Jeremy Davidson.”

  10. FreeMind says:

    Why isn’t Ton acting? It’s a must.

  11. joel says:

    Derek de lint! daaaaamn, i love that guy!
    But i might just as excited about Keir playing one of the scientists :P

  12. joel says:

    i do hope the actors speak english without a horrible dutch accent >_<'
    Emo in elephants dream was a good example of this..

  13. BakkerTom says:

    Great actors! Derek was pretty great in ‘Nova Zembla’ and his role in ‘Gooische Vrouwen’ is also pretty hilarious. Haven’t seen Sonny Boy, so I can’t really comment on Sergio and all the others. Overall, I think you casted some really great actors!

  14. pb says:

    Great to see Chris Haley get the Tech Head part! If you haven’t seen it, I urge people to check out his audition (that’s how you submit an audition tape!). Just hope you don’t get all shy in front of the movie crew, Chris – keep that mad Tech Head mannerism thing going (just imagine you’re back in your audition room… or that everybody’s naked… ugh…).

    Also, Ton should definitely do a Stan Lee/Alfred Hitchcock type walk on. It’s what the people demand. :)

  15. jay says:

    Derek de Lint looks like a total badass, can’t wait to see this guy in action!

  16. Joeri says:

    Great lineup.
    Temper the overacting and this will be great!

  17. Blendiac says:

    +1 for a cameo by Ton

  18. Extensor says:

    +1 for Jody nude scene

  19. Xero says:

  21. eon mach says:

  22. roofoo says:

    As long as they can act better than those guys in Big Buck Bunny, I couldn’t understand a word they said.

    • Manuel says:

      Actors in BBB? It was all hand-animated and there was no voice acting other than ‘ehh’-sounds, i don’t understand where you draw the connection.
      Maybe you mean the BBB ‘advertisement’ for and from

      • roofoo says:

        Wow, has no one ever heard of sarcasm? It was a joke, I am well aware there was no dialogue in BBB. :P

  23. Christoph Pöhler aka Dracio says:

  27. Nabil Stendardo says:

    This is what I have been waiting for. I really like the line-up. I am sure you are right about Vanja and Denise. Who knows, it might be the start of a great career for them.

  28. J. says:

    Maybe it’s funny to have one actor shouting in Dutch ”gloeiende gloeiende!” when everything’s on fire. (it’s an alternative for language like ”damnit” and it means ”glowing glowing!” :D)

  29. lancelet says:

    Old Thom looks a bit like Gary Graham (Soval from StarTrek).

  30. mookie says:
