I have unnatural mancrushes on Bradley Cooper and Ryan Gosling. They are so so as actors, but they could fill some of the big roles I feel.

Engaging Forum Necromancy. Here are my picks for a show that will likely never happen:

Kellhus: Evan Williams (Chevalier of Versailles)

Proyas: Pedro Pascal(Oberyn GOT), Alexander Vlahos(Monsieur of Versailles), Jonathan Rhys Meyers(The Tudors)

Conphas: Eugene Simon(Lancel GOT)

Achamian: If Robin Williams was still alive, he would have been perfect. :( But now? George Blagden(Louis 14th Versailles), John Bradley-West(Samwell Tarley. GOT)

Esmenet: Indira Varma (Ellaria Sand. GOT)

Mimara: Rosabell Laurenti Sellers (Tyene Sand. GOT)

Xerius: Rodrigo_Santoro (Xerxes in 300)

Istriya: Diana Rigg (Olenna GOT), Helen Mirren(The Queen)

The Synthese: Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad)

Cnaiur: Mick Foley(he was insane Mankind for WWE).

Moenghus: Jonathan Pryce (High Sparrow GOT)

I guess that’ll do for now. The rest? I either can’t think of any or just haven’t thought about it. :/

Here's a link to a nice and bearded Alexander Vlahos: https://divinesong.tumblr.com/post/165278919278/lookie-its-nersei-proyas-just-kidding-its

Wow that's quite the list. You're a fan of GOT, I guess :P.

Cranston as Synthase is a great idea.
Helen Mirren too

Totally. The Ketyai ain't white. Proyas should be played by a 20-something handsome dude from Bollywood, not some white cracka boi.

Why we gotta get racist up in here? ;)
“No. I am your end. Before your eyes I will put your seed to the knife. I will quarter your carcass and feed it to the dogs. Your bones I will grind to dust and cast to the winds. I will strike down those who speak your name or the name of your fathers, until ‘Yursalka’ becomes as meaningless as infant babble. I will blot you out, hunt down your every trace! The track of your life has come to me,

Pedro Pascal is a POC. And I was under the impression that the Ketyai were like Southern Europeans.

But, yea, yellowfacing is still a bit of a problem. :/

I mean, it's up to interpretation, but I'll die on the hill that the Ketyai are all POC in my head: Nansur are east Indian, Conriyans/Ainoni are Iranian/Persian, Kianene are Seljuk Turks/Saracens.

Saubon refers to Gotian as a "shit-skinned pick" in his fit of pique at Mengedda. I wouldn't think of a mildly tanned Italian dude as "shit-skinned" lol  Idk, I think it makes the racial politics of the world way more robust and divorces the Three Seas even further from Standard European Fantasy World v.598.

Priyanka Chopra is everyone's premiere fancast choice for Esmenet by the way.

Yeah, but her character sucks in Quantico ( maybe not her fault, could be due to baaaaaaad story and directing, so I'm open to it ).

George Alexander was born to play the role of Akka.

Also, the Seinfeld episode with Cool Tony bears an striking resemblance to Akka's relationship with Kellhus

Come to think of it, does Richards give off a Cnaiur vibe to anyone else?

Pretty sure this is the first time she's mentioned in this thread though ;).

Um, I'm no fan of Akka, but he doesn't deserve the Georgie Porgie treatment. Not sure who would be the best fit, but someone whose good with brooding self-pity.

He's a classically trained Broadway actor. He'll be great. Got the perfect look, the role is easy (coincidentally, I believe that's how he got cast for Seinfeld to - explicitly for his looks)

I would replace Bryan Cranston with Jonathan Pryce as the Synthese. There's just something about his face that makes me thing it would fit perfectly on top of a bird's body.

For minor characters, I think Katrina Law (Spartacus) could play Fanashila.

If it is made into TV, I pray it doesn't go as badly as Sword of Truth/Legend of the Seeker.

If it does there may be a Third Apocalypse
