Dream cast for Warbreaker?

22 posts in this topic

With the entire Cosmere optioned for movies, I've seen threads talking about who should play the Mistborn characters, the Stormlight characters, but not Warbreaker, which may have the most potential as a movie. Most importantly, who should voice Nightblood? That's almost as important as deciding who should be the voice of Stick.

Just some quick thoughts:

Susebron: Brandon Routh (mostly for looks, plus he'll be better as an actor if he's not talking).

Siri: Daisy Ridley 

Vivenna: Katie McGrath

Denth: Simon Baker

Tonk Fah: Adam Baldwin

Vasher: Jason Statham. Kidding. Not sure yet.

Lightsong: Dunno. Would need to pull of glib and cheerfully willfully ignorant, while still looking godlike and amazing.

Llarimar: Sean Maher (with a little extra weight of course).

Blushweaver: Morena Baccarin

Bluefingers: John Cleese

Treledees: Clark Gregg

King Dedelin: Anthony Head

And the voice of Nightblood? Alan Tudyk. (Originally I had Jim Parsons here, but he can be Stick in SA.)

I know I've left out plenty of characters, but I like most of these.

Wow, I don't think any of those are how I imagine the characters, though those choices for Vivenna and Siri are pretty cool. Interesting to see such difference (and I see Vasher looking ~30, so Sean Bean seems much too old).

What's funny is that while reading the book, my mental image of Vasher had Sean Bean's head from when he played Boromir in LoTR.

There's already a topic for this, if y'all want to revive it. But also no please put all of these whitewashed castings back in the mistborn thread where they belong.

this is the original topic, if you want to continue there. As you can see, most of your suggestions are already there, with various discussion and about how you could do a lot better with these characters.

I posted in the original forum but I dabbled in Necromancy in doing so. So I'll post it here as well. I submit Ryan Reynolds as Lightsong the Bold.

Yea I think Daisy Ridley is a good choice for Siri

Since I do not remember a skin color assigned to Vasher....and hell even if one was....I can just see Samuel L. Jackson for the witty banter, sarcasm, and disregard for the status quo.....Vasher is like the Nick Fury of the Cosmere, lots of secrets and sarcastic as hell. 

Or maybe he should be Kel

Maybe Samuel L. Jackson (almost put Nick Fury) should be Hoid. :ph34r:

Ok… I need to reread Warbreaker with that in mind.  I can very much see him in that role, that's awesome!

I really like your list.I'll have a go.

Lightsong : James Franco

Vasher : Wolverine

Vivenna: Jennifer Lawrence 

Siri: Fresh face

Blush weaver: Scarlett Johansson 

Susebron : John Snow guy

Allmother: Jodie Foster 

Chris Pine might need to be cast in storm light archives a kolin. 

Kelsier has to be Dicaprio, otherwise I'd maybe put him on lightsong.

Forgive me if I don't buy Dicaprio  as Lightsong. There is something about his personality which lacks the goofiness which is needed for the role CGI chris pratt maybe?

I could go for Chris Pratt as lightsong. That works. 

That dicaprio/ tom hanks movie about the fraudster airline pilot/lawyer fake check maker guy was on when I wrote the post, which I why I was thinking of Dicaprio for a role requiring humor. 

James Franco? But would he get buff? Probably not?
