- Tom Cruise stars as Colonel Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg, a German World War II colonel who leads the plot
- Kenneth Branagh portrays Major General Henning von Tresckow.
- Bill Nighy portrays General Friedrich Olbricht. Nighy was cast to give a sympathetic quality, so Olbricht would not be the „fall guy“. Nighy wanted to convey Olbricht as divided between complaining about Hitler’s regime and actually doing something about it.
- Terence Stamp portrays General Ludwig Beck. Singer met Stamp to discuss playing a part in X-Men, having admired him for portraying General Zod in Superman II. Stamp endured the Blitz as a child and aided Singer in staging a scene where the Stauffenbergs hide from the Allied bombings. The actor described his approach to portraying Beck: „There has to be a kind of non-judgmental discernment, so when I’m playing villains, they don’t think they’re particularly villains.“ The actor sought to find „the part of Terence that would be prepared to fall on his sword for certain ideals.“
- Kevin McNally portrays Dr. Carl Friedrich Goerdeler.
- David Schofield portrays Erwin von Witzleben.
- Christian Berkel portrays Colonel Albrecht Ritter Mertz von Quirnheim.
- Jamie Parker portrays Lieutenant Werner von Haeften.
