Google "Netflix" and "Witcher".

I look forward to seeing who they cast to mumble through Geralt's dialogue.

Mads Mikkelsen as Geralt definitely. Great actor, plus actually looks like him.

Could be horrible. Or it could be decent.

Fantasy stuff with elves and Dwarves and such has never been done well on TV. I'm eager to see the attempt tho.

I predict there will be outrage at the casting of a black girl as Triss because there is a trend of replacing redheads with Black people, or they will stay faithful and there will be outrage over lack of diversity.

There should be lots of middle eastern roles right. I've always thought it rather ridiculous the way people focus on the race of the actor. I mean they are actors, they can pretend, so can the audience. The play is the thing and all that.

 

Can a white man play Malcom X. Well, no. Probably not. Is race at the forefront of the Witcher material, yes, but it's non human vs human. that is the divide. You could throw in any race to play human parts. It wouldn't matter.

Why does anyone need another Witcher TV series when we already have the televisual masterpiece that is The Hexer?

Hatred of subtitles perhaps.

They should cast Nicki Minaj as Triss, she would be perfect  :dancing:

Mads is a great pick. But I'd really love to see Josh Holloway (Sawyer; Lost) come back with some major work. I think he'd be perfect.

Not entirely sure if you're serious, but Zoraptor was joking; the Hexer sucked. Big time.

He's a lead in Colony right now so I think he has work. Wasn't there a rumor like a year ago about him playing the Witcher and it was denounced?
