I really like him. THOUGH I don’t think of him as a hugely versatile actor. He generally plays people that outwardly present a lot of swagger and are wise-crackers, which I don’t necessarily see Barahir as. Perhaps he can do more but I’m not sure I’ve seen it
Barahir should have a 'dashing' side to him. He's a warrior from a traditionally non-warrior people, and so he has to have that bold side of him to have embraced their new lifestyle. And he saves Finrod, which is a heroic action that would not happen at all if he weren't a risk-taking leader.
As for Lin-Manuel Miranda, he has done a period piece that was not intended to be modern - Mary Poppins Returns is set in 1930's London.
I am not sure that Barahir is a role that would require any singing, but I don't think we need 'save' him for a singing role, either.
