Okay, dunno how I missed her, but looks like her name was not tossed into the mix for Lessa, Laura Fraser. Watching A Knight's Tale, and seeing her as the blacksmith. I could so see her as weyrwoman. I looked up information on her, looks like she stands 5'-3" tall. Dark hair, light eyes, and definitely understated beauty.

His name is Johnathan Frakes. He's also a pretty decent director.

I caught the kinda old movie "Quigley Down Under" on TV, and it occurred to me that whoever the lady is who's the main female character in that flick would make a good Lessa. At leaSt she would have at that time! Tiny and delicate w/ lots of dark hair and a bit of a firecracker personality.

I'd probably switch these two. I think Sean Bean makes excellent villains, but The Rock makes a better good guy with a sense of humor. Can you imagine The Rock giving F'lar the eyebrow, after F'lar tells F'nor about one of his outrageous plans?

And yes, I know that The Rock doesn't fit the physical description, but since F'lar and F'nor had the same father and different mothers, this would emphasize the fact that they are half-brothers. And I also would like to see a more racially diverse cast than what is seen in The People of Pern. Especially Sebell being played by someone of Arabic or Indic origin (like Suresh from Heroes).

Oh and on the subject of the Rock playing F'nor. . . .well. . . that'll take some getting used to! While I agree that the Rock makes a great friendly, likeable- type guy, that's personally not the physical appearance that I always saw for for F'nor. And Brenda's right- where are we going to find someone that looksa like him? And Canth- what about Canth? What about Grall? What about Brekke?

Oh noooooooooooo Jube. Fandarel is a *tree Stump* of a man. He is huge, built like a heavy worlder. Robbie Coltrane has always seemed to me to be the perfect Fandarel...give him a short buzz hair cut and put him in leather pants and vest, he would be just perfect

Tom Seleck is just to gorgeous of a man to be Fandarel...in my drooooooling over him opinion....but he would make a hellva fantastic looking Dragonrider or Lord Holder.

If I choose Dwayne Johnson and F'nor, then a pretty good (older) F'lar would be Billy Dee Williams (Han's friend Lando, from The Empire Strikes Back). You'd need someone with a strong presence to play him F'lar with The Rock as F'nor. If BDW is too old, then maybe Wesley Snipes.

Someone mentioned needing a larger than life persona to play Toric. The Rock might fit that bill to a "T".

I like muti-cultural, and multi-racial casts. I suggested on an HP board, that the best person to replace Richard Harris would have been Morgan Freeman (and I still think that). But that would have required some guts.

Anyone know how well Morgan Freeman can sing? He's got the presence to play Robinton.

Morgan Freeman has the 'wisw old man' presence. He can pull off the sneakyness of Robinton, as for singing, he can lipsync if he can't actyally carry a tune. I'd love to see Morgan as Robinton, but from the pictures I'd seen of the Masterharper Morgon doesn't look like hinm.

I have to concur, which is why I put forward another relative unknown: Leah Cairns. Dancer thin already.

I don't mind stirring the racial pot where I can get away with it. Kal Penn for Sebell for example. Major changes with major characters...a bit over the top. I like Morgan Freeman (thought he was great as God in Bruce Almighty), but I don't see him pop to mind for anything in Pern except Zi Ongala.

BDW is way too old and I'd sooner cast Snipes as R'gul.

Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson works better for funny than truly bad, so I can't see him as Toric. For someone from the same batch of actors I'd sooner take Vin Diesel (if you've ever seen the Riddick films, he can do truly bad and better he can do truly ambiguous), although truth-be-told, my first choice for Toric might be Tahmoh Penikett with a blond dye job.

I want to repeat my choice for Fandarel (Michael Clarke Duncan from Armegeddon and Green Mile)
Thinking of Robinton's mobile face made me think of Jim Carrey (sp?) but he is wrong age and does not have the dramatic weight for Robinton (at least in pictures I have seen him in)...He has done some drama though.
If I watched more daytime soaps I could probably come up with some names. Tamara Braun comes to mind as Lessa http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2609289984/nm0105860

Jim Carrey is a very mobile in the face. For him to appear older just need some latex facial prothesis.;-)

Vin Desil, good actor.I saw the RIddick films. He's being considered for Hannible in one of the up coming "Hannible" films. Dwane still new as an actor, it leaves room to grow, seems to have a LOT of fun. Give 'em a shot for dramatic and see how he flys. Vin and Dwane "could" pull off sibling charactors. Putting a tan on Vin is easy with the spray tanning solution.

Vin "So I'm flyin' a dragon? Cool. Do I get to set some things on fire?"

FOr another bad guy, how about Temura (Jango Fett Star Wars). He was also in a few Dr. WHo episodes.

Emeraldrose...I love Michael Clarke Duncan to...and he is definitely big enough to play Fandarel...he was also in The Scorpion King, and he was marvelous. I think he would do a great job...but I still see Robbie Coltraine in my minds eye...I think he would be fantastic as Fandarel.

Diesel, is supposed to play THE Hannibal, not Hannibal Lecter of recent fame. The one Vin plays is the guy who brought elephants over the Alps to attack Rome, around two thousand years ago.
Come to think of it though, the dragonriders tend to be described as lithe/lanky, except for Jora. Light of frame at the very least. I can't see Diesel as a dragonrider. Hey, how about he be Brand.

Here is my two cents...
I did not come up with all of these on my own- some have already been mentioned and my mentioning is my agreeing with that choice.


Lessa - Amy Jo Johnson with black hair
F'lar - Christian Bale beefed up
F'nor - Eric Bana
Robinton - Jeremy Irons or Liam Neeson
Moreta - Amanda Tapping
Menolly - Emma Watson (Hermione)
Toric - Tahmoh Penikett
Jaxom - Tom Welling
Sharra - Jennifer Connelly
T'bor - Karl Urban
Kylara - Amy Smart
T'kul - Mel Gibson ( Think Lethal Weapon)
Peimur - Frankie Muniz
Sebell - Ewan McGregor
C'gan - Alexander Morton
Fandarel - John Rhys-Davies
F'lessan - Eric Dane

Neryma...Have you seen John Rhys-Davies lately. In the last few years he has been getting as thin as a rail...he's also way to old to be able to handle it now.

Last year I did a portrait of Liam Neeson as *Red Hanrahan* with red hair of course...so I can't really see him as Robinton.

Emma Watson...now that is a lovely pick for Menolly!!

I think Christian Bale is to hard looking for Flar

So ya like Eric Bana, Lady M.? He is such a cutie. He played Eowynn's brother (Eomer?) in Lord of the Rings.

How about we switch them, and make Christian Bale for F'nor (does he really have bright blue eyes like he did in The Dark Knight?) and Eric Bana for F'lar? They're both such lookers maybe that'd work!

the first message for this post said something about a time machine... so it doesnt really matter What he looks like NOW! And I always thought of F'lar being a little rough looking and Christian bale can clean up- any one remember Little Women?

I love "Little Women" (had a great day awhile back as the Little Women movies were in a marathon. Saw the versions with Kathryn Hepburn and June Allyson in addition to the one with Christian Bale as Laurie...
Using the time machine we could cast Carroll O'Connor as any one of the Lord Holders (except for Oterel--need someone gaunt for him)
Family is watching an episode of "In the Heat of the Night"
