How about Ray Liotta?  Classic hothead movie role...

I love questions like these!  It's so fun to imagine good actors in Shakespearean roles!

I can see Philip Seymour Hoffman as Tybalt.  He plays just about any role he touches incredibly well (did you see "Capote"???  Holy cow, he was good!), and he already has that snide, sarcastic edge to him down pat.

After seeing R&J in Ashland, I always picture Tybalt as a red-head - weird, huh?  The actor who played him at the OSF was AMAZING!

I like Draco Malfoy for the "evil" factor, but he's far too blond in my mind!

I picture Tybalt as a fit and preppy type of guy.  Like the Socs from "The Outsiders".  He'll be young and tempermental.  If we are staying true to the setting, he will be of Italian looks as well.  I like Josh Hartnett or Steven Strait.

I love Draco Malfoy as a choice.

Alec Baldwin, Matt Damon, any one of those NFL stars who think they're also actors would also suffice.

Good Luck!

Well, the character is pugnacious and hot-headed, yet loyal to his family name.  He would have to have a snide wit and sullenly carry a grudge far enough to challenge someone to a duel, even though he was told to leave the matter with Romeo alone.

My choice would be Tom Felton, also known as Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films.
