  • General Casting

    So I wondered as there has been a significant time from most of the last posts. Who would you cast for a lot of the parts
    I would prefer Brits or Aussies for most parts but I could see Americans cast for Young Kingdom Folk.

    such as

    Elric - Jonathan Rhys-Meyers ? (I'm sure a lot of people have already mentioned Him. Dream Casting - Bowie circa 1970-1

    Yyrkoon - Christian Bale?/ Stuart Townshend?

    Cymoril - Samantha Morton?

    Theleb K'aarna -

    Moonglum - ?

    Arioch - Might be cool to cast different actors for the different ways he appears. Older/Younger/Etc

    Lord Donblas

    Xiomberg - Tilda Swinton? (perhaps she is too old)

    Jagreen Lern -

    Count Smiorgon

    Any others I have left out or Different ideas please post.......

    Elric - Johnny Depp

    Yyrkoon - Christian Slater

    Cymoril - Samantha Morton (why not...) or Audrey Tautou

    Theleb K'aarna - Marylin Manson

    Moonglum - Tom Cruise (perfect size)

    Arioch - John Travolta or Brad Pitt

    Lord Donblas - David Cronenbeg

    Xiomberg - Cate Blanchett (or Lyz Taylor )

    Balo - Seth Green

    Jagreen Lern - Henry Rollins

    Count Smiorgan - Patrick Stewart

            I look a bit like Johnny Depp, and I act better.

                I haven't any new idea for the casting, except one: the french actress Astrid Veillon as Yishana...

                    What's wrong with Tom Cruise? He's a fuckin' A as an actor.

                      I like Tom Cruise honestly, he's a very good actor. Have you ever seen Legend? Omg, i love that movie! One of my favorite fantasy movies. He knows how to do fantasy, and can be very good at it. I do believe that Depp fits more as elric but if Cruise were to play a role on any other level in this film i'd be pleased.

                        I still see Gary Oldman as the perfect Elric...

                          Oldman has a great persona and acting ability for the role, but his stature is a bit to be desired. I am sure if he was selected the movie staff would make him fit the role well and i'd still enjoy it. However, i think there may be better options out there.

                              Spongebob as Stormbringer? (shivers) Let's hope the movie people arn't that stupid.

                              I have no idea who that guy is, but damn you for it. I got a useless window hanging here that won't go away.
