Mark Wahlberg sucked as Max Payne in the movie - who could do the character justice?

Sorry but no, Max payne is a weathered, bittered, cynical, jaded wretch and you picked out a cast of good looking dudes? As a straight guy, David Boreanaz is a hunk, Lee pace looks too clean, David Ramsey isn't grizzly enough (also a black guy playing a white guy? There should be more WAY more black actors and roles for them but I'm not a huge fan of race swapping ... is that latent racism? I dunno. I do know that I think he is PERFECT in Arrow), Colin Hanks looks like too much of a wuss and Zachary Quinto is your best bet but still looks a little too nerdy to be a dead inside cop.

Would I be too on the nose if I said John Mcclain Bruce Willis?

Personally, I would say Gary oldman. He looks like the guy from max payne 3 box art!

Not a single good choice, I like Lee Pace but like omega said "too clean".

So many better options like Josh Brolin or Clive Owen

Just get Sam Lake and have him dubbed over by James McCaffery - bam, perfect Max Payne.

I think Karl Urban could pull it off. With the right scruff/stubble he can look pretty grizzled and threatening (he did good as Dredd). And Collin Ferrel could work, if he could loose the Irish accent.
Though if they want to go with an older Max Payne, Micheal Biehn would be almost perfect for the role.

Poor choices there. The only one I might have believed from the list is Zachary Quinto.
I agree with twistedmic. Karl Urban would work. The job he did in Dredd speaks for it self.

Good idea, love Karl Urban in Dredd.
