    Locations

    This is just a first (but wow how late!) thread about possible locations for season five. So, let’s brainstorm: what do we have to look for? Harad, obviously. Anything in Beleriand? Nan Elmoth?

    Emeldir

    Emeldir is Barahir's wife, the mother of Beren. The casting guidlines are a bit vague and give us some room: "Scary. Tough-looking. Formidable. Not necessarily unattractive. Tall. Commanding presence." I nominate Asia Argento. IMDb She's 46 years old, and has starred in Les Miserables and Land...

    Elrhûn

    Elrhûn is the son of Annael. He's a Sinda serving under Fingon. I nominate Emilio Sakraya. IMDb He is 23 years old, born in Germany. EDIT: WAS CHOSEN; OK BY EXECS

    Hador

    Hador is supposed to be in his early 20s or maybe younger, tall, dashing, charismatic with a leadership presence, a warrior. I nominate Norwegian actor Tarjei Sandvik Moe. IMBD He is 22 years old and a little over 6' tall. I guess he could have been a little brawnier, but on the other hand he...

    Bëor

    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...

    Haleth

    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. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000128/ 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

    Edhellos is supposed to be physically imposing. I nominate Gal Gadot. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm2933757/ 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...

    Glorfindel

    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...

    Thranduil

    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...

    Balin

    Jonathan Frakes https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000408/?ref_=nv_sr_1?ref_=nv_sr_1 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.

    Diriel

    I nominate Katie McGrath https://www.imdb.com/name/nm2692146/ I think she'd be a great Noldo lady, and a perfect match to Curufin. Age: 36 Height: 5' 5½"
  17. Haakon

    Bard

    I nominate Michael Shannon https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0788335/ 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...

    Rhogrin

    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 would...

    Gandalf

    I nominate Jeremy Irons. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000460/ 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...
