    I initially didn't like this casting because I though he was too skinny and didn't look the part until I watched The Last Station and found the Ubin I was looking for:

    I actually wanted Richard Attenborough until I found he was dead. there goes that idea.

    ...And Somebody! He is either Fasolt or Gunnulf but I can't put my finger on which. Mind giving me your opinion?

    His face says Fasolt but his hair makes me think Gunnulf. hmm... I think it's Fasolt.

    You know how I said I was saving Alette for last? yeah.... I lied. Once I saw a picture of this fine girl I had a massive heart attack and had to go to the local infirmary. My god she nails that innocent look! This casting is better than Sean Harris as Ekkill! I am dead-fucking serious! And if you don't agree with this casting I hate you!

    Well, the eyes and the look are certainly spot-on! Congrats for that, too, SirCritic. I just wish she had the hair-color too; but, we can't ask for everything, can we? I hope you don't (partially) hate me

    I forgot something else! These are the people who will be cast in the second part. If they are not perfect for any character i'll eat my hat (and I have many)
    https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000198/?ref_=nv_sr_1
    https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1985859/?ref_=ttmd_ph_nm1
    https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001602/?ref_=nv_sr_1
    https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000293/?ref_=nv_sr_1
    Mark my words! these people will be perfect for someone! If i'm disproven i'll give the first person to respond 45 pounds!
    care to speculate? we don't know any of the new character in the second part but we do know some people who will show up (King of the Humans, an assortment of Menders) .

    Another quick thing. Wouldn't it be friggin awesome if the King of the Humans (we all know he's in it eventually) was playable? That would be dope!

    I was originally apprehensive to cast this guy due to his... ability. This guy can act and that's what made me think he wasn't right for Gunnulf but he played Mike Myers in Halloween so he's accustomed to playing roles that don't have much talking. And I also felt he was too famous but then I thought well Gunnulf is a pretty major character(depending on how you use him) not key but pretty major. So here is Gunnulf:

    Pretty damn good if I say so myself

    I suggested Sean Bean a while back for a lead-role (Rook). Can I have some pounds now? Oh, wait, pounds of what?

    As for the Human King, I've fished some info about him from looking through "garbage" in the game-files, but I won't spoil you... unless I get some of those pounds!

    He'll do. Besides Gunn doesn't seem like the talkative guy. Now, you gotta find his lost twin to play Sigbjorn!

    I know Sean Bean fits in somewhere even when I was playing the game and I don't want to be spoiled so

    You know what sucks? The fact the every character is like squinting like they have too much sun in their eyes and it always screws me up. how can I cast competently when they don't even open their eyes fully! I have to guess!

    AHHHHH!!! All this searching for people for such small roles is sucking me dry. I only have 3 characters left and I only have one person in mind for ONE character. But its weird because they're related to someone else I cast! so color me clueless. Care to help? And no Russell Crowe!

    So, you need: Valgard, Vognir, Sigbjorn & Tryggvi? That last one is a much-loved character, so you gotta give it a good try... How about bring-in Day-Lewis? Before you start, I know Daniel is an actor for first-roles, but, this is a fantasy-cast, right? So who cares? Another "mustache actor" is Sam Elliot; he's got that crazy-merry look in his eye, too.

    I care! And I actually have a Valgard now. And an idea for Vognir and Tryggvi. So I guess you can call that progress!

    Buddy Boy! I'm done! I have now finished the whole damn list! I have cast Valgard,Vognir, and Tryggvi!
    https://www.imdb.com/name/nm4273190/
    https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0827170/
    https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0318543/ (Note: Imdb profile picture not representative of what lead to his casting. Google Images if you need proof.
    Complete List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls075059242/
    This has been an exciting two weeks I must admit. I got mentioned by the devs on Facebook, Gotta meet a few of you guys (via Internet only but still), found one actress who I now have a big crush on! But the only question that remains is what now?

    EDIT: I'm not casting Sigbjorn. i'm too lazy and the Devs didn't make him look different enough from Gunnulf.

    Indeed, the imdb profile pics weren't so good. It kinda worked for Tryggvi (that "crazy" look and the tattoos), but Valgard and Vognir, I wouldn't have understood them, honestly.

    Thanks for your complete list SirCritic So, what now?

    Shit! I was on Imdb admiring the list, and having a good time and I accidentally deleted who I cast as Yrsa. I reset it and put everything back in order but I might as well ask for your opinion on the casting (not that it matters much i'm not changing it) I want specific opinions on the people on the list before I started adding more people in and updating as I go! makes the list seem more complete if I get specific opinions on everybody. But anyways give me an opinion or die!

    This is the picture that made me cast her along with the fact that she's good in roles similar, is really awkward in interviews, and is hot. (those eyes make my day better!)
