The Wheel of Time Casting Call Tier One Introduction

So, no Casting today. I just wanted to let you know how Tier 1 would work.

Basically, there are ten characters to cast:

Elayne Trakand
Nynaeve al’Meara
Egwene al’Vere
Moraine Damodred
Lanfear / Mierin Eronaile
Ishamael / Elan Morin Tedronai
Moridin
Perrin Aybara
Mat Cauthon
Rand al’Thor

I will be pairing up the characters two at a time (not releasing order yet, since I’m not 100% sure myself), so it will take five weeks to cast the remaining characters. After the final Casting Call (which, really, is going to include Rand, so set your calendar), I will do a Roundup post where I talk about changes I would make, differences in how I would make the posts, etcetera.

Anyway, hope you guys are looking forward to it – I know I am.

See you next week!
-Brandon

  1. Oi Vay…you’re stretching it out five weeks?? I’m gonna go crazy. Just thought I’d let you know lol. But seriously looking forward to it 🙂 Your suggestions so far have really helped my whole reading experience come to life. Thank you! Book five is really getting crazy now 😉

  2. I’ll approve it. Also, some of those castings are just CRAZY, dude! 🙂

    Feedback:
    Your Lan choice is awesome! 😉

    Allison Mack is awesome, but I don’t think she’s Elayne – she just doesn’t have that almost-near-perfection I think the Daughter-Heir requires.

    Keira Knightly . . . as Aviendha? Huh…

    I think Morgan Freeman’s voice is just too damned pleasant to be the Dark One. James Earl Jones would probably be a shoo-in, though I don’t think it even has the right level of menace.

    People really seem to like Helena Bonham Carter as Moghedien, but that’s one that I disagree very strongly about. Every description of Moggy is that she is very plain to look at, and that you wouldn’t pick her out of a crowd. Carter just looks nuts, and ALWAYS looks nuts. I agree that she’s the right kind of crazy, but I think she would make a much better Semirhage (wrong skin color or not!).

    Sarah Chalke is hot, and I have no idea who she is.

    Callum Blue’s not a horrible choice for Taim, but I don’t think he can look old enough, even with makeup.

    Bradley Cooper’s way too hot and tall of Ituralde.

    I understand why you’re going for Staunton for Elaida, but it doesn’t work – too short, too squat, and too old.

    Michelle Pfeiffer is a good shoo-in for Morgase, I would have used her had I not found my choice.

    A lot of your choices seem extremely out of left field, and some I can’t picture at all. Others are good (Statham works for Masema, Hardin works for Tylin, just dye her hair).

    Thanks for reading, let me know what you think of mine now!
