    I think it's time to begin looking somewhat more seriously for the actors who we will want to see playing some of the Men who will appear early on this season. We will have to be a bit careful and not rush ahead too much. For Bëor, we can start posting suggestions though. The discussions so far...

    The people of Haleth are described in a separate thread already. They're supposed to be short and have dark hair. The execs want Haleth to be tall though. We still have to make her appearance make sense, to make her look like she's of the same kind as the ones who are a bit shorter. We also have...

    Dain Ironfoot

    "Quiet; doesn't say much, gentle in speech. Taciturn but reliable." I nominate Russell Crowe. Age: 55 Height: 5' 11½" He can be mild while everyone knows that he's also The Gladiator. He'd be perfect as the Dwarf King.

    Edhellos is supposed to be physically imposing. I nominate Gal Gadot. Age: 34 Height: 5' 10" She's obviously known for Wonder Woman. It would be interesting to see her play Edhellos, as the role would have a destiny that perhaps would be unexpected...

    Erebor: The Lonely Mountain

    The mountain known of course from The Hobbit. It is the source of the river Running. Tolkien's illustration: Tolkien could have gotten the idea of this mountain during his trip to the Alps in 1911. He could have seen the Matterhorn. Or perhaps not - I'm not sure at all that he was anywhere...

    The casting demands say only that Glorfindel has to be gorgeous and blond. It should perhaps be easy, but it seems it isn't. I nominate Russian actor Vasiliy Stepanov. He's been in a successful Russian movie, Inhabited Island, and I think a sequel. I'm afraid I don't know a lot about him...

    In the Hobbit, we don't get much feel for the lord of the Woodland Realm. The casting instructions were: "weak, stern, //haughtiness of someone with low self-confidence,// not admirable, //short". Most of this was said as a comparison to Legolas, who we will want to portray as braver, and...

    Jonathan Frakes Age: 67 Height: 6' 3" The actor we're looking for is supposed to be a Balin who is "old, friendly, and outgoing". "Everyone's favorite grandfather." The search is over. I'd say Jonathan Frakes is Balin.

    I nominate Katie McGrath I think she'd be a great Noldo lady, and a perfect match to Curufin. Age: 36 Height: 5' 5½"

    I nominate Michael Shannon Age: 45 Height: 6' 3¼" The casting criteria say: "Bard is a bit dark and foreboding - maybe a unibrow, craggy face, someone whose appearance makes people take a step back (not 'cute' or 'sunny'), dark coloring" Michael Shannon has...

    I nominate Jon Bernthal to play Rhogrin. This character is supposed to be the physically largest captain of Gondolin, dark-haired and swarthy. Bernthal could definitely be that elf. He's good at playing complicated characters with moral ambiguity. This doesn't apply directly to Rhogrin but...

    I nominate Jeremy Irons. Age: 71 Height: 6' 1½" Irons is of course a wonderful actor, who certainly can play the warm, fatherly old wizard - and also in a believable way be someone people can be a bit intimidated by, while the great kings and leaders can...

    Barad Eithel

    The fortress of Fingolfin; the seat of the High King of the Noldor. It is set in the eastern foothills of the Ered Wethrin, at Eithel Sirion, the source of the River Sirion. Another place that will need a combination of location shots and the works of artists. Remember what has been said about...

    Tol Sirion and Minas Tirith

    An island in the River Sirion where it flows through the Pass of Sirion; fortified by Finrod. It's not easy to find a similar place in the real world. I think we have to combine photos and the worlks of artists. Here are some inspirational pics:

    Dain Ironfoot

    Dain is not exactly old, but not young. Quiet; doesn't say much, gentle in speech. Taciturn but reliable. [Not pompous like Thorin.] I'm not sure this is a suggestion, but I came across some pictures of Russell Crowe. I wonder if he wouldn't be a rather good choice. But then again, perhaps the...

    Celeborn's sister

    Celeborn's sister - should look like a relative of Celeborn; firm and reserved; isolationist, rarely speaks. Mysterious. Intimidating. [Mandos role] Tony's suggestion: 'beautiful woodswitch' So this is Celeborn, Patrick Wilson: The picture in the middle is from Aquaman, and the one to the...

    Bard is supposed to be a stern, rough man. He should have the kind of appearance that makes you a bit uneasy. I'll start this by suggesting Michael Shannon. He has an impressive, hard, dangerous look. But he has also a lot of warmth, at times. He's a really good actor...

    Dís is supposed to be stern in a way that makes people be a bit scared of her. I would like to suggest Glenn Close for this role, I think she'd be great.
