Men (as in humans)

Right... I mean I can find short actresses easily. Mila Kunis for example. I guess you could add stockiness but that would feel like cheating.
And getting an actress to put on 20-40 lbs. isn't exactly the easiest thing to do. As I mentioned in the "House of Finarfin" thread, Jewel Staite gained 15-20 lbs. for her role as Kaylee on Firefly, and it was considered rather shocking. Kaylee isn't even what I would consider stocky.

Also, I would prefer that she be solid rather than just fat. Fat girls aren't _that_ hard to find in Hollywood, but they hardly bring to mind someone that would be capable in combat.

EDIT: DISCLAIMER: I am not using fat as a derogatory here.

Iain de Caestecker. I was thinking of him as a possible Brandir. He plays Leo Fitz on Agents of Shield and they share some characteristics; both are physically weak and not comfortable with weapons. They also have an attraction to a young woman that they cannot verbalize; Simmons for Fitz and Nienor for Brandir.
Age: 29
Height: 5'8"

Summer Phoenix. She could be a candidate for one of the House of Haleth. Maybe even Haleth herself. upload_2017-4-12_15-28-44.jpegupload_2017-4-12_15-29-0.jpeg

Here she is to the far left:

did i mention i want danny trejo as brodda?
Don't think you did. I like him as a type but isn't he a bit too old? He turns 73 this May. Well, I'm not actually arguing against casting him but the age could be a problem.

at least sador and aghan have to appear as main characters... maybe we even should invent a few drughs to have spokesmen for them when we show the haladin.

question woukd be:how di they look and what kind of actor di we imagine for them...

Yes, by 'a lot' I mean a couple of main characters and a few more (which may not even be included in casting, I don't know). Drawing a parallel to the discussion about Dwarves, where we've talked about creating some kind of continuity, showing them beginning in season 3 and never really leaving them (except for when we're in Numenor, I guess...). With the drúedain I think we should avoid continuity. When we get to the later Third Age, we want them to be almost forgotten. They should return as something oout of the past, I think, reclaiming their rightful place as Men among the free peoples.

Exactly, I wonder the same thing...
