Perfect age? LH is 54, Linden is in her thirties in TWL.

they can easily make it work, LH is in great health and still young enough to pull it off, plus she can do the last chronicles. this is of course if they start now. if they wait 10 years, that kills the idea

LMAO!

Sorry, that's damn funny. I'm still laughing. Mr. Green

I'm not laughing. I find the idea pretty intriguing.
The dude is an actor, after all. I'm sure he doesn't talk like a mobster all the time.
This, however, is the best idea I've heard so far...

Very good choices, I particularly like Hugh Laurie, Susan Sarandon, Kevin Klein and Peter O'Toole. I don't know the actor proposed for Vain, but the look is very fitting)

I just watched an episode of DS9, and Rene Auberjonois' raspiness and authoritative presence caught my attention. I think he would be asesome as Prothall.

Not sure why pic isn't posting Confused

HA! I never knew there was a fan club for this stuff. I read these books (the first 2 trilogies) in the eighties. I just uncovered my (some first editions) books from boxes, and saved them from a garage sale. Started to look up value and stumbled here.

What interest it perked when I saw a film forum here! Too bad it sank, what a bummer.

Hugh Laurie is a great option. If he's too busy enjoying his royalties, Chris Cooper seems to be quit versatile. He can cover the nice guy, mean guy and the troubled guy. Everyone has likely seen him in movies, but he hasn't been big enough to get his name in everyone's head. I think he's one of the best actor's no one knows by name.

Director makes a huge difference in movies to. Good actors can end up in stinkers because the direction is poor. LOTR/Hobbit director is too "cheery" based on what was delivered, not saying he's bad, just cheery. Maybe Bigalow or Greengrass can make the jump to SciFi/Fantasy.

Good evening.[/img]

Julianne Moore is a great choice for Linden Avery in my opinion - in fact my internal visualisation of Linden is pretty close to how Julianne Moore looks.

If the 1st Chronicles were to have been filmed in the 1980s or early 90s I would have proposed Anthony Hopkins as Thomas Covenant, even though I always visualised him as looking like a young James Caan. As it is both would be too old for the part now, so instead I would go with Guy Pearce.

John Leguizamo would make an amazing Harrow, and Kathy Bates as the Mahdoubt would be awesome too.

Christian Bale as Caerroil Wildwood? Liev Schreiber as Trell? Charlize Theron as Elena?
Christopher Walken is a must as Kasreyn by the way!

No, I respectfully disagree. Bannor should be played by either Scott Adkins or Michael Jai White, both of whom have the correct physique for a Bloodguard and can move like cats. Ray Park would be a good choice for another Bloodguard, as well.

I might believe Dave Tennant as Amok, but in no way could I picture him as Bannor.


How about Chuck Norris as an aged Bannor? (The Power that Preserves)

The Last time I read the Chronicles, I totally saw Jennifer Aniston as Linden Avery. Not Rachel Green, but 2017 Jennifer Aniston. I think she fits perfectly.

Leonardo DiCaprio would be a great Covenant.

I think Andrew Lincoln has the right look for Covenant, but doesn't sound right Confused
