    They are far too established to play those roles. especially Mickey Rourke for Griss who would have very little screen time.

    Jeff Bridges has a very rectangular head while Mogr has a bit more square head. I don't really see it but you get definitely get worse choices.

    Posted this capture a couple weeks ago, but this is the relevant thread for it to be, here's some Rook'n'Alette :





    EDIT : Also you could pick anyone from the small cast of that film, but specially Ingrid Bolso Berdal who plays a decent villain there. Could be an Oddleif :





    But if the cast needs some out-of-this-world beauty .. then Eva Green could be casted to play Juno. Or other character, or just write something for her ffs ! (she's even doing lots of genre lately to boot). She could be a terrific witch too. A real one, not like that Yrsa wannabe.

    There's the need for some irresistibly atractive witch who enslaves children and plucks their eyes out with her nails in the Banner Saga II. Alex, get to it.

    Eva Green could totally play a great witch! But she feels so.... typecast.... but in this trilogy i'm sure she fits in somewhere.

    Josh Brolin's a great choice! Here's a few ideas for Vognir:

    -Sean Bean (Nobody would see his death coming!)
    -Russell Crowe
    -Gerard Butler

    To be honest Vognir shouldn't be played by A-listers like Russell Crowe (who to me looks the most like him out of the choices you made) and Gerard Butler. If he was a more major character to the storyline I could see it sure but he really isn't. There has to be a divide between who plays who. Someone like Josh Brolin is an A-lister (i think) and Hakon is one of the main characters so it makes sense to have him play the role. To have Russell Crowe play Vognir would be a nonsensical waste of talent that should be reserved for a less-known actor. And also they would ask for a big paycheck for a small role and nobody want's to give some guy with like 20 minutes of screen time (To me that would be enough to establish the character before his demise) a 50 million dollar paycheck.

    Less known actor+smaller paycheck= less budget inflation. That's how movie studios and directors tend to do things

    Oh my god I think my inner Hollywood executive just came out!

    And also I'm reserving Sean Bean for the right time. He fits in this story somewhere and i'm determined to wait until the bitter end!

    Hey! Benedict Cumberbatch's voice is the only voice i could imagine! Christopher Lee played the Jabberwock thing in Alice in Wonderland and he had little screen time! so

    Besides i'm looking at the big picture. That Serpent is being played up as kinda the big baddie and he will appear in the next two parts. Vognir even if he's mentioned a lot will not be. so... that's why things will been done the way they are.

    Sorry if i sounded like a dick back there Gudmundr! (or however it's spelled)

    This one I can partly thank balnoisi for! here's Juno:

    Look at some other pictures of her. the resemblance is nearly uncanny!

    Yup, Eva will do a fine Juno. Still waiting on Alette...

    @SirCritic -- Don't forget to supply the link to the whole cast in your latest posts; it will help those who flash through the thread. You could add that link in your forum signature.

    I'm going to save Alette for last just so you guys can suffer. and because I haven't a clue who could do it. all my suggestions have been.... underwhelming to say the least.

    Another idea for Alette: Zoe Graham

    She's a relative unknown, and I haven't seen her in anything, so I don't know if she can act well.

    Gudmundr... You might have something there. I am curious to know her age. and height (I think Alette should be the shortest human in the cast which will be hard because currently the shortest person in the cast is 5 foot 3) but that doesn't matter all that much.

    I have a feeling Alette would be the kind of character that nobody would approve of the casting regardless of who it is.

    Gudmundr you receive the SirCritic stamp of best choice so far! But i'm not going to add Alette until EVERYBODY else is cast. lets me search without having to rush. and i'm mean like that!
