You know what, youre right.Butler's a great choice for his earlier days but he'd be too young if they started with Legend.
I'll admit that I had to do a Google image search but once I saw a picture I knew exactly who he was. He'd be perfect - plus the Scottish accent would be brilliant. I think we have a winner.You know what, youre right.
If they were to start with "Legend" then James Cosmo would be a wicked choice. Very gruff and imposing at the same time. Think it was James Cosmo who played Santa Claus in Narnia two years ago wasnt it?
I agree with you JED, if they made a film with real actors the battle scenes would have to be highly edited as the makers would probaly release under a CERT 15. With CGI you could get away with alot more blood shed during the battle scenes. Can you imagine Druss carving is way along the ramparts with no blood flying?If they made a film, which actor do you think there exists ( alive or dead) that could play Druss?
My choice would be......it would have to be CGI (like Beowulf)
No CGI IMO it must be a real person with real emotions.
CGI like Beowulf look horrible for fantasy,adventure stories. When they make it try to look "realistic" computer animation like the recent Beowulf it looks very strange.
Which is why i have no interest in the CGI Beowulf despite the famous story and one of my fav actors Anthony Hopkins.
