I was actually asking Emerald rose if she knew if about the famrer's identity not if she were he.

James Cromwell in ST: First contact. Hmm he'd have to be Zephrim Cochrin.
<Rubs chin> nahh defiantly NOT Robinton material Too scruffy, and not tall enough. Doesn't look as calm as Robinton does.

James would make a creat holder or maybe Fax, or someone depending on the time period the make the movie in.

Well, how about him being Lord Corman? Stubborn, cranky, and never comes across as too bright. Zephram Cochrane with a shoulder knot.

Cromwell also played the warden in the Green Mile...Fandarel being a larger than life personality makes me think of Michael Clarke Duncan (also from Green Mile. and Armageddon)

Hmmm MCD might just suit the role actually.

He was Also in Star Trek First Contact, and I, Robot. I dunno, He does come across as grizzled in most of his roles, if he was a bit more filled out he might be Fandarel better than Robinton.

A possible other suggestion for Fandarel could be Oliver Platt.
I agree with the others that MCD would make the best Fandarel.

How about Oliver Platt (or JRD) playing Groghe?

Who would make a good Meron? From the talks about the Pern TV script, I would think that Meron's role should be expanded to give a face to an antagonist other than Thread.

And I think Sean Bean would make an excellent Fax.

think asna had space bar difficulty, was trying to say Judi Dench as Gemma. She was in The James Bond movies as M with Pierce Brosnan, also an air elemental in Chronicles of Riddick

She is getting on in years. definitely past childbearing age... but definitely had the "fire" F'lar was looking for.

AHh I know whom Judy is, and her Riddick Elemental and Classic "M", just not her chractor Gemma.
Judy would work well as a senior Weyr woman, or a Harper woman, or lady holder. Or a narrator. Some female charactor telling the story.

I stumbled across a website with hans' pictures of DragonHold Underhill and saw a nice picture of RObinton in Anne's diningroom. It got me thinking of an actor that'd fit him.

I don't remeber the actor's name. He was the charactor "Mr. Linderman" on "Heros". he has a cultured voice but not a baritone.

Thanks for the name Emerladrose. He'd make a wonderful Robinton.
Johnathan LaPaglia (Frank parker on 7Days) would make a good dragon Rider. Not too sure whom though.

well, he's got an older brother, Anthony (Jack from Without a trace) a little old for F'lar/F'nor , maybe Johnathan as T'bor.

Malcolm McDowell as Robinton? Maybe, though he's been across the board as an actor, anyone else seen A Clockwork Orange?

Anthony LaPaglia was great in Betsy's Wedding (lol) and as Daphne's brother on Frasier (he had a brief run of shows). He would make a good Lord Holder (bad or good actually smirk)
What about Eric Mabius (Daniel Meade from Ugly Betty) as one of the Benden brothers?
F'nor more than F'lar wouldn't you agree?

Now he would make a good Meron. Nice and overbearing. Does bad things without necessarily meaning to.

My main problem with Malcolm McDowell as Robinton, is that he looks too old for the part. I imagine Robinton (54 at beginning of DF) as still being very active for his age. He'd have the crow's feet around the eyes, and some salt in his hair. I see Robinton as really showing his age after his heart attack. If we FF to that point, then I could see McDowell playing Robinton.

I haven't seen Chicago, but did Richard Gere do a decent job with his singing in that film? I've heard a big complaint about Pierce Brosnan's singing in Mama Mia.

Hmm.

How about James Spader as Meron? He's good looking and sensual enough for Kylara (because, let's face it - Kylara wouldn't go for an uggo no matter how powerful he was), yet sufficiently creepy enough to give people like Lessa and Brekke pause.

http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2545259520/tt0402711

And...while I keep trying to put Milo Ventimiglia in the F'lar role, he just strikes me as more of a F'nor

http://www.imdb.com/media/rm1843041536/tt0813715

Though - neither of them will ever happen.

Most of the people on this list are too old to play Lessa - at least now. Adrienne Barbeau? Sally Field? Demi Moore? Even Jill Hennessy is pushing it.

Though I've always liked Lucy Liu for Lessa.

Uh, have you seen Bruce Boxleitner? I love the guy, but he'll never pass for 30 again.

Not to mention Clark Gable has the SERIOUS disadvantage of being dead.

I solidly endorse Hugh Jackman for anyone. I don't care who. In fact he can just stand there and take off his shirt and I'm good.

And I most emphatically agree. Up to and including "standing there and taking his shirt off". In fact, just the other night, I was quite sick - feverish sick - and not paying much attention to anything, especially the TV. At one stage I turned and looked at it, and I can't remember the movie, but lo and behold, there he was, in all his naked glory.

Mum says that's the only moment of lucidity I had all night. *snort*

I don't think she speaks very good English though...or she didn't when Rush Hour 2 was shot. She might have picked it up by now.

Someone mentioned the actor from Heroes for Sebell --what about Naveen Andrews from Lost?

The two of them could play cousins,siblings, etc...

Zhang Ziyi would be a perfect Avril Bitra if they did a movie off the first pern book.

Just watching Lethal Weapon tonight. I had a random thought of Mel Gibson really showing the depression a dragonrider would likely feel on the loss of his dragon. Perhaps he would make one heck of a Lytol

YES I absolutely agree with y'all. Actually I was thinking of him for F'nor. . . But nevermind.

Dragongirl, do you happen to remember which channel you were watching? Nah. . .

Hope you're feeling better!!

I'm new, so please don't flame too bad. And a LOT of timing for this as well. After looking through The People of Pern companion book:
Alemi - the person who played "Face" in the A:team
Yanus - Ian McClellan
Robinton- ALWAYS heard Connery's voice
Fandarel - I agree with Michael Clark Duncan. He has the size, voice and presence.
F'Lar - Christopher Reeves
F'Nor _ the actor from Superman Returns (very close match in looks)
Morshal - I can see Jeremy Brett here(from the BBC Sherlock Holmes Series)
Tall,thin and quite an actor before the later series.

I admit I have a small knowledge of actors and actresses as I watch very little TV or movies. Still...
Oh, and did I read right earlier that there was a TV series planned? Or has it been nixed like many other plans. Any talk of an actual movie? I actually had the nerve to send a letter to Spielberg suggesting it when I was younger.Can imagine how far that got.

Hello there Elvenart, welcome to the forum.:-)

Nice choices. Sean might be a little too old for action parts, nice voice though.
Cristopher Reeves would've made a great F'lar but unfortuatly the dear man had died. So may be the gentleman from Siperman Returns could do both parts with make-ip changes. Or Clark from Smallville.

Hi elvenart! Welcome to the board and I hope that you enjoy your time here.

I don't watch alot of TV either, so I'm with ya there! Interesting choices on the actors. . . I have PoP too (I have for years) and love to look through it, but really, have yet to find someone who can act and EXACTLY matches the looks and personality of many of the characters on Pern. This is going to be one tough movie to cast!! (Lessa, for example, is probably going to nearly impossible. But then again, dragonriding is about doing the impossible.)

Yep, T'mynn's right, unfortunately Christopher Reeves has passed on.

well the initial premise was time machine or whichever to nab the person in question.

there would be an interesting endeavor. make a movie using only cgi, the characters being the actors and actresses, all computer generated from previous screen time with the computers forming audio and video of them. but would prefer Jurrasic Park level of work, not beowulf.

I'm sure The Doctor would help, or are we talking USS Relativity here?

Welcome Elvenart...you do have some good choices there...and mostly this thread is who we would all love to see play those parts, if they decided to do a movie again or a T.V.series. Think of this as a thread of the perfect * DREAM CAST*.

Yeah, I know Reeves has "gone Between for all time". A sad event. Still , it would have been interesting to see those two act opposite each other. It's hard to see too many people in these roles, as I don't have alot of actor/actress knowledge, let alone like many of the more current people. Still.... several of the cast of Lord of the Rings would make good choices. Ian McCellan and Christopher Lee would do outstanding in the proposed movie, I believe.Ian as Yanus (from People of Pern)?Maybe?Something about that picture of Lessa keeps nagging at the back of my mind, though. I seem to remember that when I bought the book oh so long ago, that there was an actress that fit the picture almost to a tee, though for the life of me, I can't remember who.(By the way, I love the necklace she's shown wearing. I would love that for my wife ).

I don't know about our good Doctor. He seems to bring along too many Baddies with him. "Destroy,Destroy. Annhilate." OH!Ahem. Sorry.... Maybe Picard or Kirk would be better choices for the time travel.

Speaking of which : Riker's actor as Oldive. He's quick and has a truely Macavellian glint in his eyes when he gets going! I could see him hunchbacking his way behind Menolly one minute only to tease her the next about being as blighted as he (huge grin followed by lots of rolling laughter!) .
