Who should be Geralt?
Mads for sure!
He would have the look and definitely can command the presence.
Mads would be great, and look at that picture. Very on point
Matthias Schoenaerts is an actor from Beligium that speaks perfect English. Great actor and looks similar to Geralt. Mads would be amazing as his fellow Witcher that trains Geralt. Side note: Mads is da man! Can't wait to see more on Death Stranding!
Absolutely wrong, he is toooo stoic for Gerhalt.
I wouldn't necessarily disagree, but I would see him as Vesemir over Geralt IMHO. As said above, his commanding presence differs from Geralt's 'loner'' feel
Josh Holloway, the guy who played Sawyer from Lost, has the perfect face for it.
This isn't to hard honestly. There are 2 excellent actors who could pull this off very well. Both have done some great action films. Michael Fassbender Benedict Cumberbatch I'd give honorable mention to Charlie Hunnam.
But neither have the look for Geralt, I certainly would like to see them as different characters but Geralt should look similar to his in-game portrayal.
@Elit3Nick All of them could look like Geralt. Only Benedict would be a hard sell. All of them are excellent actors. Who did you have in mind? You want someone who can act as well, not just look like the character. @InTheZoneAC Reported?? lol!! For what? @Mr-Dude Mr Bean as a parody comedy maybe, but that's about it. Who were you thinking of to play the part? I'd love to hear other people's suggestions.
@Xander I rather see Mr.Bean play Geralt than those three...
Rowan Atkinson would be an amazing Geralt lol My name is Mr witcher
I think Travis Fimmel could pull the look off the best.
tbh Geralt wont be the main character they clearly stated based on the books not the game. the game made Geralt the main character when he was just a costar in the books.
Ah, nice to know I'm not the only one who likes Hunnam and Mikkelsen! ;)
I like all of those suggestions.
Scott Eastwood... I like the idea of someone who could pull it off, that could look like geralt with the right makeup and clothes but isnt a big star or as well known. Scott has the look, physique, and height, not sure about his acting. What I dont want, a big name actor who has alot of roles under his name already, like Chris Hemsworth.
Hope they don't screw this thing up.
Same here. Netflix has been really spotty lately. When they hit, they hit hard, but when they miss....
"Miss" as in all of Adam Sandlers exclusive Netflix movies? lol!!
He's a slight unknown, but Dustin Clare would be a great choice. He was Gannicus in the Spartacus series on STARZ. Plus he already has the sword training.
No one, the story sucks and the character is goofy as shit.
Gerard Butler, nough said
Charlie Hunnam-e-nam-nam I'm not hundred per cent but I'd buy him. Mikkel sure look bad asery but a bit tall and hence too skinny for a Geralt? Geralt seems more robust in body and Charlie have that. I don't know anything more about him though.
They are all good. Holloway is identical. Jaime Lannister would be great to bring fans in. Jax has the perfect type of character to be a brutal womanizer.
You mean "Nikolaj Coster-Waldau". He has the sword play. Not sure about the look though.
FYI, this is being done by a CG effects company ( http://platige.com/ ) , so most likely it will end up full CG. That will all depend on their budget of course.
get rid of the red hair, and put Toby Stephens in a witcher suit. ?He has the commanding presence from Black Sails as well as what could be whit from his time as a bond villian
So the studio who handled the Cinematic is handling the series.... http://platige.com/en/page/...
I just, again, want to remind everybody that the TV series is Netflix's own take on the book series, NOT the video game series, so the chances of seeing Geralt in the series are very VERY VERY slim. Maybe Netflix will reach out to CD Projeckt as they're not even involved in the TV series and ask them for licensing to the character, but if that's the case he may even just be a minor character and not the main protagonist.
You are joking right? Geralt is "The Witcher"
@Kran i'm guessing you've never read the books. start with The Last Wish. The Witcher is Geralt of Rivia, there are other Witchers, but he is The Witcher that the entire series is about. he will be in the series, if he isn't it isn't a witcher tv show based on the books, but a witcher show based on the world
Josh Holloway aka Sawyer from Lost.
I think only one actor should play Geralt. The movie will make more sense that way... 🙄
A 30 years younger Kevin Costner would of got my vote. Oh well
Armie Hammer or Alexander Skarsgard!
Sean Bean is the Perfect choice
Just putting this out there... Zach McGowan https://s-media-cache-ak0.p...
I actually think that Ewan McGregor would be a good cast. Skilled actor IMO.
