Considering David was created "In his own image".  Why not just have Fassbender in heavy makeup play Peter Weyland.  it couldn't look any worse than Guy Pierce made up to look like an old man.

Was David created "in his own image"?

I don't care. That one flashback scene from Covenant made Weyland much more meaningful than his entire screen time in Prometheus and virals combined.

Agreed. One of the few perfect scenes in AC.

I didn't see David as a duplicate of Weyland but as an artificial "son" of Weyland.

From "Prometheus";

Quote
Weyland: ...His name is David. And he is the closest thing to a son I will ever have...

It would be nice having the different company leaders of Weyland have androids modelled after their looks, such as Bishop.

That's what I was thinking.   As much as I disliked AVP...I thought it was a clever tie in to have Lance Henriksen play Weyland.  I like Guy Pierce as well....it just seems like a waste having such a good actor with such little screen time without heavily applied makeup.

Wasn't it implied by either Scott or one of the writers that David was a combination of Weyland and Vickers?

Originally, the great Max von Sydow was going to play Weyland. That would have significantly reduced the movie's overall cheese factor and probably would have been much more effective.

If Fassbender had played Weyland, David, and Walter, I think it would have been too similar to Brent Spiner playing Soong, Lore, and Data on Star Trek. The dynamic between Walter and David was already a little too similar to the one between Data and Lore for my tastes.

Max Von Sydow was in ROBIN HOOD(Sir Ridley Scott).

Say his name - with title - enough, and he'll appear. Usually works better if done in front of a mirror.

RUTGER HAUER (3D) was ALSO a possible actor TO play WEYLAND

I'd be terrified if that drunken old Brit materialized out of thin air before me, especially if it works like Terminator time travel and he shows up naked.
