Lately I've really gotten into R.A. Salvatore's Drizzt Do'urden books. Drizzt, for those of you who don't know, is a renegade dark elf set in the fantasy world known as the Forgotten Realms. I doubt it will ever happen, but I personally would love to see a movie based on Drizzt hit theaters. I personally think it would be great if they started from the beginning, doing a film version of the Dark Elf Trilogy, which is the story of Drizzt's beginnings, and possibly Salvatore's best books, but I suppose they could also do the Icewind Dale series as well, as that series introduces a lot of other important characters like Wulfgar and and Artemis Entreri. But anyway, if such films were ever made, who would you cast? Here are some ideas I had: Drizzt Do'Urden: Here's a character who should be dark but noble; a little crazy but certainly resourceful. An actor portraying this part should be someone who is in excellent shape but also slim and not overly tall. I had to jump on the Jude Law bandwagon (I personally never wanted him to play Superman, Batman, James Bond, the Joker, or any other character people were petitioning to have him play) butI think he'd be the perfect Drizzt. His features and range would match up perfectly. But Law is a fairly big star right now, so it might be better to go with a less known actor, so in that case I'd go for Sean Patrick Flannery. Why? Well, the guy has some interesting range (check out his character in Boondock Saints and contrast it with the guy he played in Suicide Kings) and he certainly doesn't mind doing roles that require a lot of weird makeup (Powder). A while ago there were people saying that he'd make a great Silver Surfer. Silver Surfer, in many ways, is a similar character to Drizzt, and that's what made me think of Sean for this part. Zaknafien Do'urden: For the part of Drizzt's father and mentor, you'd need someone who can portray the whole "old and weathered warrior" part without actually looking old and weathered. My first choice would have been Liam Neeson, but since he's playing a role similar to Zaknafien in the new Batman film, I'll go with Timothy Dalton for Zaknafien. Although he's definitely my LEAST favorite James Bond, Dalton has done better when he's played darker, more embittered characters. Jarlaxle: I hate to cast an actor in the role of a bald character just based on the fact that the actor is bald, but damn, Michael Rosenbaum would make an awesome Jarlaxle. This is a part that would require an actor to be manipulative and calculating while at the same time charming and boisterous (if you've ever seen Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Johnny Depp's character is pretty much Jarlaxle... the only reason I'm not naming him for this role is because he's such a huge star). Rosenbaum has proven himself to play this type of role (to a lesser extent) on Smallville and I think he'd make a great Jarlaxle. I'll add more when I have more time... please feel free to give me your imput as well.
