Some one gentle enough to pull this line off,Yeah, a lot of people basing their choices on actors who are 'big' enough, in muscle terms. Its a tricky one, the actor would need to put on the muscle sure but the presence of the character would be the hard part. A man who was pure power and commanding yet kind and gentle? Very hard to pull off. For the record, Tom Hardy would be a no no. As someone said above, far far too pretty
He was pretty good in the Hornblower TV series, too.For an older Druss, I wouldn't be against Perlman at all. He's a great actor. The challenging thing would be finding the right people to play in the cast around him.
If you are making a film from Legend, then you have got to find the perfect person to play Rek since he's such an integral part of the story. You would need someone who can act but also has star power. I wouldn't be against Ioan Gruffudd. He is a classically trained actor who is recognizable because of his roles in King Arthur and as Reed Richards in the Fantastic 4.
