Heck, I don't know, this is difficult... ;D I love a challenge.
I agree, it's pretty tricky thinking up actors.

Alexander: Dougray Scott ?

Valanice: Julie Christie ?

Yeah, but we don't want the KQ movie to be a trashy action film. We want it to go to the Academy Awards!

I think Cate bLanchett should be in it, but I don't know who she'd be. Maybe the Queen of the Winged Ones...?

And such an identity satisfies my artistic brain...

No no no people. You don't just think up popular actors for movies like this, you cast for unknowns.  Seriously, the best way for a movie like king's quest would be unknowns.

Graham would be an unknown DEFINATELY, it would be a joke to have any of the actors mentioned for him in that little hat of his.

Rosella I think could possibly be a popular actor but she needs to look more European.  Not any of these pretty american girls.  Actually, a Norweigan actress would work really well.

Valanice- Italian lady.  Kind of like Kelly McGillis: http://www.peterweircave.com/witness/km.jpg
She's gotten older since Witness but Valanice isn't exactly young.

Alexander-  Any number of guys could go for this   Heath Ledger actually sounds pretty good although I think his face structure isn't ideal for the character.  Orlando Bloom is a no no.  Not only does he not look anything like Alexander but also I can't stand his acting.  He conveys emotions generically and delivers them in such a insignificant way.  As far as innovativness goes, he's nothing special.
Another possible famous actor for Alex is possibly Joseph Fiennes but he might be a tiny bit too old.

Director- TERRY GILLIAM!  Best choice all around.  His quirky touch to this would be perfect.  The way he uses old methods instead of CG all the time for his special effects transports like no other director.  If you've seen Brothers Grimm you know what I'm talking about.

I think that if there was a KQ movie, it should be KQ6, and that it should be like an Indiana Jones Movie. I dunno who would play the characters though... nobody really looks like them (that I can think of) >_>

Mel Gibson = King Graham.  END OF STORY. ;)  But I do like the idea of casting unknowns as some of the characters.

didn't we actually make this character/actor link before, to base our modelsheets on I mean. The ones that come to mind are:

Edgar: Heith Ledger
Cassima: Jennifer Connely
Alexander: Joaquin Phoenix
Graham: Harrison Ford
Valanice: Julie Andrews (could be nice)
..
.
oh, and these could be cool for some of the non-main characters:

Shadrack: Vincent Cassel
Hagatha: Helena Bonham Carter
Manannan: Christopher Lee
Azure: Antonio Banderas
Pawnshoppe Owner: Morgan Freeman

Jennifer Connelly is not exotic enough, I think, for Cassima. Cassima needs to be someone like Monica Bellucci.

Well you still can't get away from the fact that no video game to movie transfer has ever been good (there's a curse).  If you say tombraider was an exception, I will pummel you.

I don't know - maybe the Halo movie will break that curse.  It's one of the few FPS's out there with a good plot.

Yeah, but it's based on an Xbox game, so it's evil by default. :P

And also the characters in Halo are generic with no real depth.  In order to bring realism to the characters, elements of the plot will be tampered with mostly just for the sake of limited screen time so they can fit in scenes that expand on characters.

Good point.  Most of the characters are just cannon fodder.  *shrugs*  At least the soundrack should make Moody happ-ay!  ;D
