There has only ever been one F'lar for me - Adrian Paul
and Orlando Bloom would make a great Jaxom
Catherine Zeta Jones would be my Lessa and if Robbie Coltrane can appear as a giant in the Potter films I'm sure CZJ could be shrunk a bit !
F'nor would be Johnny Depp
Robinton - Richard Harris
Lytol - Liam Neeson
Mirrim - Zoe Wannamaker
D'ram - Viggo Moretenson
for starters

My dream cast would include Richard Dean Anderson, Johnny Depp, Viggo Mortensen, Heath Ledger and Orlando Bloom ^^

F'lar: Richard Dean Anderson
F'nor: Faramir (whoever plays him anyway)
Lessa: Veerle Casteleyn (she's only 4'9)
Jaxom: young Heath Ledger

Yeah, actually I like the Kate Beckinsale for Lessa idea.
Not much of a Baldwin fan (don't kick me out.) And if Connery were to play anybody of Pern it should probably be Robinton. But, he's got such a voice...it would have to be just right. Brosnan isn't bad because his voice can cover a few dimensions and still have that appeal. I like Connery, don't get me wrong. Tommy Lee Jones is the same way... he's got such strong features. Orlando Bloom is a dream, what can I say. But, he was mainly an unknown before LOTR and it would be great if the Pern movie turned out like that. Giving other actors a try.
Well, I've said too much. It's fun to think about and ponder on who would make a great cast.

OK, time to inject a bit of humour here (just becausa I can )

F'Lar - John Wayne
F'nor - Jimmy Stewart
Fax - Humphrey Bogart
Lessa - Maureen O'Sullivan
Manora - Jane Wyman
Kylara - Maralyn Munroe
Fandarel - Robert Mitchum
T'ron - James Cagney
Robinton - Stewart Granger

I think that's where I'll leave it for now!

OH NO...

Not Humpfey Bogart for the bad guy

Robert Mitchum for Fax...not without about 100pound added

John Wayne for Flar...please my sides hurt from lauging so hard!!!

James Cagney for T'ron...well only after you add about 6 or 7 inches

The rest of your humorous picks....are wonderfully funny..well all except for Stewart Granger, I did consider him for about 2 minutes for Robinton...but I had been looking at a lot of faces that day...and I do like his face but it wasn't quite right!!! Well but you know that already don't you

Actually, Bogie started out playing 'Bad Guy's opposite Cagney. It usually wound up with Cagney offing Bogart's character by the end of the film.

Ever seen Mitchum in the original Cape Fear?

The rest were just fun picks off the top of my head.

Kugai, OH MY your right...how did I forget that about Bogie as I have all his old films. Yes I did see the original Cape Fear...and now that I think of it a few others too...the one with "Love and Hate"(sorry can't recall the title) on his knuckles...he was unbelievably scary

I love the idea of Catherine Zeta Jones as Lessa though...I also like that Veerle Casteleyn for her as well.

I've always pictured Young Carrie Fisher as Lessa, especially when she (as Princess Leia) gets that feisty spark in her eye, with her hair all crackelly around the edges cause she's irritated or mad at Han.

That said, F'lar...Would prolly not be Harrison Ford... I've looked through stuff, and while not perfect (I had someone else in mind, though I don't know who it is) I put forth either Jason Behr, or the guy that plays Ted Sprague on Heroes... Although, Hugh Jackman would be cool with long hair again.

Sebell, my friend Nicolas Schneider, who plays far more instruments than should be allowed by one man, and wrote over 20 songs before his 18th birthday. That and Nic acts, looks, even has a distinct stride like Sebell.

Robinton, I dunno... He's so, hard... I first thought of Christopher Lloyd, when it talks about how his skin is across his face, but he's too serene and carries too much presence... Christopher Lee? Too bass... Liam Neeson? Ehhhh... Forget it! Someone else come up with Robinton. Or Jeremy Irons.

Fandarel--Vin Deisel with long grizzly hair and beard. Right voice and muscles. Though, there were others...forgot.

Fax--The guy who plays Nathan Petrelli on Heroes. (Hint, look for an angry/serious/thinking picture of him)

R'gul--John Rhys Davies

C'gan--Johnny Depp (older, but has a boyish face)

...I think that's it for now (brain's dead due to no sleep...)

I agree with younger Carrie Fisher as Lessa. I always giggle when Leia gets the whole hands on hips, chin up thing going with the obstinate, feisty sparkle in her eyes because it reminds me of Lessa when she's about to have it out with someone, particularly F'lar.

Shame that Harrison couldn't be F'lar, he and Carrie had a good connection. On top of that, they were good at playing the whole "bantering and getting under each others skin" thing one minute, but then later on being and becoming one of the sweetest couples in history.

From wanting to kill each other to becoming soulmates in heaven, I love couples like that.

Though Jason Behr...hm yes indeed. He'd make a good younger F'lar. What about James Caviesal? Or Eric Bana?

==========

Summer Glau would make a good Lessa, I think. In my current read of All the Weyrs of Pern, that's who I'm using.

Jewel Staite is perhaps the most perfect candidate I've seen so far for Menolly.

I've always thought of Marc Singer for F'lar. Tall, angular, rakish good looks. Rutger Hauer might well work.
Laura San Giacomo for Lessa. Petite and well rounded.
The only other one that comes to mind would be Lindsay Lohan for Kylara. She's got the same amoral predilections as Kylara.

Let's not bash actors, please. Criticism is fine, but outright bashing of actors is unnecessarily rude.

Marc Singer has the looks and charisma for F'lar, but he's too old for the initial books now.

If it's not too late to join in?

I think I'd like Nathan Fillion as F'lar, because he's proven he is spectacular in a leadership role. F'lar had to make his own way with the dragons and riders he had before the Oldtimers were brought forward, and I think the guy who played Captain Mal to perfection could pull off the intense, almost desperate, even conniving attitude F'lar had.

For Lessa, I'm afraid I have to go with another "Firefly/Serenity" actor and choose Morena Baccarin. She's already proven she has great on-screen chemistry with Fillion, and she is quite beautiful; she could pull off Lessa's looks so easily. Her run as Inara did not give her a lot of chances to try for a more driven character, but Inara was intelligent, and Morena did wonderfully in the action scenes of "Serenity", giving her an intensity that just plain kicked butt on the big screen. If she focused that into Lessa's cunning, I think it could be spectacular.

For some reason, I see Christopher Eccleston as Fax. He can be quite forceful when in character, and imagining him in a leather vest, swaggering about as the arrogant, sociopathic Fax comes so easily. I've heard his voice ring with scorn and anger as The Doctor; that could be part of it.

F'nor is a tough one. So's Robinton. Lemme get back to you on that.

I could see Nathan as F'lar. He's a little old, but he looks young enough to pull it off.

Morena is too old and too tall to play Lessa (just like my favorites, Catherine Zeta Jones and Kate Beckinsale).

It would be nice to see Christopher Eccleston play anything in a PERN movie. Maybe have him be Lytol with Sean Bean as Fax.

Well, there are always camera tricks (or platform shoes) to make people seem taller or shorter. Take "X-Men", for instance. The actor playing Cyclops, James Marsden, had a scene where he looked down on a kid in a train station, but the kid was too tall to be looked down on. So Marsden had to stand on a crate and be filmed from slightly below to appear taller than he actually was in order to pull off the shot.

(Tyler Mane later put the crate in a bathroom with a note for Marsden saying "This is so you can reach the sink" as a joke. XD)

Marsdsen. Maybe he'd be a good F'nor.

I'll go for MOST of these.... Patrick Stewart for Robinton: He isn't tall enough, and he sure doesn't have the hair for it!

I don't think GHarris is serious, AnnMarie. I think he just recast "X-Men" as Pern, which works some places (okay, so I just want Hugh Jackman in ANYTHING--I even sat through "Van Helsing" for the man), and in others...(Famke Jansen as Brekke? Well, at least James Marsden would get the girl this time....)

If I had to cast anyone from X-Men as Robinton, I'd actually say Sir Ian for the simple fact that I love his voice and bearing. The man is capable of charisma plus.

Okay,

So we change the X-PERN roles for this:

Robinton: Ian McKellan
Fax: Patrick Stewart

It would give Patrick Stewart a chance to play against type. How long has it been since we've seen him play a bad guy?
