Nathan Fillion would do a damn fine Lansiron:

Image

Unless he's just putting in a non-speaking cameo, in which case he'll be portrayed by Rhapsody of Fire guitarist Luca Turilli, who actually looks like him, but I doubt he would really play the role...unless Lans has what'd probably be a thick Italian accent (I assume. I've never heard this guy talk. Only shred.):

Image

Norvallen I'm stumped on. Can anyone name a very tall (character's height is 6'4") blonde who's good at seeming sociopathically austere and otherwise sardonic?

Also, jesus christ she's incredibly tall.

Lans, what about Heidi Klum? She's like, 5'10 or something.

Her tallness is 'cause of that whole "valkyrie" motif, or some such. That and to make up for the fact that Lans is only about 5'8".

Coming to think of it, Uma Thurman probably dead-on. Looks are different than how she's drawn, but hell, I can see her nailing the personality and vibe, and screw looks for the sake of that. She's also about the exact right age. Even managed to get a picture where her hair is nearly exact:

Thanks, Tarq. And even if she ain't Heidi Klum, well...we got that eye-candy anyway!

True story, I have a friend who looks /a lot like Uma/.

No problem, Lans!

Tarq is, for anyone who somehow didn't know, played by the inestimable Ewan McGregor and His Beard.

Jak has always been somewhat more difficult to cast - possibilities have included Sean "Simon Tam" Maher, Jamie "Lee Adama" Bamber, and Eric "Lots of Awesome Roles Including That Kickass Jew in Munich" Bana. At the moment, I'm thinking about James Purefoy, primarily due to his portrayals of Marc Antony in Rome and, yes, Edward Plantagenet in the way-better-than-it-should-be A Knight's Tale
Image

He's somewhat older but I think it's workable.

One day, Marty says to me, "I saw Threnn on a magazine cover." It was something like Consumer Reports or Smart Shopper or the like. I went to the bookstore and found it, then found her name, and lo: Deanna Russo.

(Who is, apparently, in Knight Rider now. That little smile is so perfect.

Davien's a tough call. Morena Baccarin was a good candidate, but then, there's Saffron Burrows, who played Andromache in Troy. And? She's tall IRL, too. 5'10" or thereabouts (Davien is juuuust shy of six feet.)

Shaila'd be played by Ellen Page. Yeah she looks young, but so does Shai. I think she'd be able to nail the spunk while keeping the maturity Shai's able to show. She's also very small.

For Akeelah, Charisma Carpenter. One of her characters was what I based Aki off initially, after all.

Image

Rahna I've never really thought about. I'll have to give it some thought.

Closer set eyes, angular face, craggy look - all check. Originally started with Gabriel Byrne (mostly because of his portrayal of Uther Pendragon in Excalibur), but found the eyes to wide and far apart. Nykkomiakas was right - this fits better.

Aaaand, Jolly's dead wife (HAHA), Aedranna:

"I left my home where the dead never rose
But the streets of gold i've yet to find
And at the end of the day all you can do is pray
Without hope well you might as well be blind, yeah be blind
Tomorrow comes a day too soon"
