If the Hallows came to the movies who would you cast?

Hey Hallows lovers, I was wondering what actors you would like to see play what characters in the Hallows. Kim and I already started talking about this subject in another thread but thought it we should make it a new one. I suggested Joaquin Phoenix for Kisten and Kim said maybe Johnny Depp.

I never thought of him, but I like Johnny Depp for Al.I can see Al flouncing when he's sure he's going to get his way and then turning all evil.

I thought of Stephen Dorff (Decon Frost from Blade)for Kisten. He has that badboy "And I should care what you think why?" thing going on.

Skimmer - A.J. Cook

Ivy- First one that comes to mind is T.V. Carpio

I haven't found a good Rachel because all I can think of is a young Famke Janssen-ish person.

Hey tigerliliy,
I'm glad to see I'm not the only nocturnal being out there =) Yeah I'm having trouble thinking of anyone to play Rachel, no one seems to fit the bill. I agree that a famke like actor would be good although I just thought of the girl from the underworld movie.

Re: If the Hallows came to the movies who would you cast?

Hollows is crying out for a gifted TV producer to buy the rights... what a series it would make.

Also as I used to be a Video Editor and I'm now a struggling writer I think I would probably sell both my grandfathers and ten years of my life to big Al to be involved in some way :smileyhappy:

Anyway back to the question casting... Here are my thoughts.


Piscary - has just GOT to be Patrick Stewart. (Star Trek TNG)

Ivy - could easily be played by Mira Furlan (B5)

Rachel - I see Kate Mulgrew (Star Trek Voyager) or failing her Patricia Tallman (B5)

Kist - that's more difficult... maybe from B5 again I could call Bruce Boxleitner

Trent - would be Robert Picardo (voyager)

Ceri - could be Jeri Ryan (voyager) yes I know she usually plays hard... but she can do soft and sexy too and ceri is one hell of a tough little cookie underneath it all.

Jenks - has got me rather stumped - I have a very strong image of him but no one I can think of quite fits...
Witches - You will seldom notice the good ones... :-)

Hi all :smileyhappy:

I've said in the past that I think Rachel would be played well by Mandy Bruno. She plays Detective Marina Cooper on Guiding Light.

I work the night shift so I more or less keep the same hours as the Inderlanders :smileyhappy: Never really noticed it until a friend who also reads pointed it out to me along with the fact I live next to a church and there are dragonfiles in my yard. The moment I see one that talks back, I'm moving =0)

Re: If the Hallows came to the movies who would you cast?

I wouldn't mind seeing David Bowie have a part in it. He's amazing and he just captures me. :smileyhappy: I've loved him since I was three! lol

Other than that, it's so hard. I can't think of anyone who I would want to see play Ivy, people have said angelina jolie but I don't think I could stand her in the roll. She's too much for me, and annoying. lol

I could see Jenks played by Matt Damon lol

what about Christian Bale as Al?
