Casting!

Who's in your dream cast?

Community Casting


How it works:

1. Reply to the character's comment with your ideal casting choice. (If there's no comment yet, go ahead and make one.)

2. Or ideal choices, but please keep it to one choice a reply.

3. Include contextual information if you'd like, include a description of the character if you'd like to remind everyone. The more you can share the better; but if you want your choice to speak for itself, that's fine too.

4. No holds barred: your choice doesn't have to be an actor, doesn't have to be the right age right now, doesn't have to be living. Go chromatic if you'd like, play with gender if you'd like, if you want to cast a character at a different age, go for it.

5. You must include an alt attribute and/or a description following your images/links. Want some help? Read here. eta: If you forget, you'll get one reminder and a chance to repost. After a couple days, any

6. Keep your image sizes reasonable, please. That's to your own discretion, of course, but remember that people are viewing this on all sizes of devices. You don't want to make them scroll. If a mod feels your image size is excessive, we'll let you know and give you a chance to repost. No more than 10 images a comment.

7. Casting is srs business. Be respectful when you comment on someone's choice, even if you don't agree; and, be respectful if someone doesn't agree with you.

8. All other community rules are in effect.

luciazephyr: Harry looking out, embers of fire in the air around him ([DF] Give me a call- I'm in the book)

Lee Pace

[personal profile] luciazephyr 2011-10-24 02:45 am (UTC)(link)
Oh, is it time for me to shove pics of Lee Pace into people's faces again? OH BOY OH BOY. (I'm gonna add image descriptions after each pic and make my argument for him there.)



IMAGE: Lee Pace of Pushing Daisies fame in profile. He has short brunet hair, slightly mussed, a predominant nose, a face that is not thin, but looks somewhat gaunt without being unhealthy (if that makes sense). His eyes are hooded and his chin is peppered liberally with stubble.



IMAGE: Harry Dresden. Or maybe it's Lee Pace in a jacket, shadowy and intense.



IMAGE: Lee Pace laying across a sofa in a lazy sprawl, one knee bent. The picture shows off how long and lean he looks, a similar physique to how Harry is described in the books.

And finally:



IMAGE: Two images stacked of Pace in Pushing Daisies. Of interest is the bottom one, where a sweet, warm smile brightens up his face.

And not only is he physically, like, my dream image of Harry, but I think he could pull it off so fabulously. If you have Netflix, you had better take a few hours to crash through the some episodes of Pushing Daisies, wherein Pace plays Ned, the Piemaker. He pulls off dry humor, a realistic joyful sweetness, and the requisite angst of being a man with a terribly powerful, mysterious ability. I love love love love Pace for Harry and will trumphet his perfectness to my dying day.

LEE PACE FOR HARRY.

Andres Velencoso.

He's a model, not an actor. Also Spanish, so in the impossible future where The Dresden Files are made into a movie, it will probably not be him! That said: he's tall, dark, hawkish, and despite the majority of photos of him being all model-face, can pull off endearingly dorky like a champ. Plus, examine the features individually, you can almost see why Harry, with little in the way of a mirror, might not think he was attractive. Put them together, however, like we all know...

1.

Tall dark white man, late twenties or early thirties, with straight dark hair, above his ears, but kind of long and messy, and dark eyes. Profile is from the side, his nose slightly hawkish. He's got a thin face without being gaunt, predominate cheekbones, and a bit of stubble. his lips are scrunched up as he looks down and makes a face at the hem of his navy tshirt. He's exposing the top band of his boxers. Also he's butcher than Harry. Sorry, Harry.

2.

Tall dark white man, late twenties or early thirties, with straight dark hair, above his ears, but kind of long and messy, and dark eyes. Profile is three quarters. He has a navy tshirt, blue jeans and a brown leather. He's got a thin face without being gaunt, predominate cheekbones, and a bit of stubble. Left hand is on his hips, right hand is shading his eyes. He's staring into the distance and making an o! with his lips, like a dork.

3.

Tall dark white man, late twenties or early thirties, with straight dark hair, above his ears, but kind of long and messy, and dark eyes. He's got a thin face without being gaunt, predominate cheekbones, and a bit of stubble. Facing the camera, hands in his pockets and shoulders shrugged up, a wide but slightly sheepish smile. Dorkface.

Aldis Hodge | Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden

[personal profile] binz 2011-10-24 05:16 am (UTC)(link)
Chromatic casting: Aldis Hodge.

He's tall, skinny, able to pull off sarcastic as hell, and also absolutely adorkable.



IMAGE: Tumblr compilation of three images across the top and three from the bottom, predominately face-focused. Top: 1: downward angle on his upward directed face, above lit. 2: Black and white and sepia full body shot, sitting cross legged, large hands prominent, big smile. 3: Face shot, head on, mouth open wide and nose wrinkled, screaming. Bottom: 4: Side view, midarm up, black and white and sepia, peering into distance, slight frown around eyes, chin just resting on the fingers of one hand, thinker-y. 5: Standing, image from bottom rib-line up, one arm crossed at camera line, one angled up towards face, hand curled. Head angled down, eyes looking up at camera. 6: Black and white close up, lots of forehead, peaceful expression.



IMAGE: screenshot from an episode of Leverage, mostly a sideways view, sitting facing the end of a hospital bed, right hand handcuffed to it, gesturing with left hand, looking up at someone/something with a faintly annoyed expression.

He would make an amazing Harry! He's charming in a geeky way and can definitely pull off the right combination of badass and adorable.

I am so late to the party, but THIS IS PERFECT.
And speaking of Leverage, Christian Kane would make a good Kincaid.

Also, now I have this whole racebend casting of Dresden Files in my head, starting with Chiwetel Ejiofor as Marcone...

I am suddenly deeply, profoundly amused by the notion of Harry Dresden being played by Ian Somerhalder, doing his Damon Salvatore "I think I am such a badass with this leer but actually I look kind of ridiculous and women want to cuddle me like a teddy bear" face. He's too short, but so is everybody.

Ian Somerhalder making a totally ridiculous face  that he clearly thinks is sexy, with the left half of his face all scrunched up and some kind of dorky come hither look

Yep, I used alt text. :-) (I have such mixed feelings about image descriptions outside of the alt tag. On the one hand, and makes them available to a larger pool of people, and encourages people to think of the problem. On the other hand, the technology exists! We should use it! On the third hand, most browsers make it really difficult for people not using screenreaders to have access to the information in the alt tag, and screenreader users are not the only people who might be interested in an image description.)

I saw the tv show long before I read the books (it was recced somewhere and I only stumbled across the books much later) and though at this point I prefer the books by a big margin, Harry still pretty much looks like that in my head (at least approximately) and I don't mind this at all.

Re: Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden

(Anonymous) 2011-11-04 09:43 pm (UTC)(link)
(this is xiilnek on lj)

Admittedly Blackthorne was my first image of Harry, since I saw the show first, but after reading the books I really think he's good for the role. His features are kind of goofy and awkward in an attractive sort of way (which I feel fits Harry quite well), and he's good at showing how awkward and earnest Harry can be.

He's also so amazing at portraying that frantically stressed out and desperate mood that is pretty much Harry's default mode through most of the books. You can just look at him and get the feeling that if one more disaster happens he is going to fly apart, which is a look poor Harry has to wear quite often.

He was ok but he was the only thing in that show that was ok they messed up the threshold concept they messed up Bob!!!!!!!!! He didn't have the trench coat for crying out loud and that was just the pilot!

How about some genderswap casting? I vote Lena Headey!

Intense sidelit brunette Lena Headey, wearing a brown leather jacket with tousled hair, standing in front of an old, graffitied garage door with peeling grey and blue paint

Okay, she's not that tall, but she could definitely handle the badass aspects. And the angst.

three-quarters profile, leaning against a bank of windows, same brown leather jacket and hair as previous image

And she has a sweet, surprisingly dorky grin.

Well, we’ve had chromatic and genderswap Harry, so Spatz suggested I link to the post I made on Mouse’s casting thread for some animal transformation!Harry as well, since this breed would fit so well for him too, haha!
