    Live action Witcher would be weird asf it'd be a lot better to make something like Netflix's Castlevania except less "animey"

    They should put Gerald as cameo, and play Henry as a new young witcher character in the series.

    I don’t hate the guy. I don’t think the main protagonist suits him.
    What about Eskel?

    I'm not mad at all. While Henry has this superman look. I think if he has gray hair, a gray beard, and the yellow cat eyes out opinions of him would change a lot. He has that deep well spoken voice that Geralt has so, why not!

    I've always thought a young Kevin Costner would have been perfect for the role but alas

    I'd love to see Joel Kinnaman as geralt , or at least in the series as another Witcher

    Mads Mikkelsen Is the best looks for Geralt. I think he already look like him, just dye his hair and you got Geralt!

  • ryaan Asady

    Watch the western series Hell on wheels. the actor anson mount who plays the protagonist is essentially the perfect geralt

  • Need Help
    Need Help 3 days ago +1

    he's not a bad actor he just got a really shitty script for the Superman movies but probably kept playing him because of a contract and/or didn't want to starve, but I think he could work as a younger Geralt.

  • Hnke90
    Hnke90 3 days ago

    Daniel Craig, Mads Mikkelsen, Nikolaj Coster Waldau, Cristian Bale, Hugh Jackman. all of them would fit imo. Probably forgot some obvious choises aswell

    I can totally see this; hopefully, this reaches whoever is in charge of casting for the show. If i'm to nitpick i'd say his voice might not be a perfect match but that's probably something they can fix in post.The fact that he's genuinely interested in the character and the world speaks volumes.

    I think he could get away with it. He has the looks and the voice for it.

  • Fallout Wanderer 2077

    Love him in the roles I've seen him in, and his knowledge and passion for the games and books is great but I don't think he'd be a great fit for Geralt, however, that doesn't mean he couldn't play another role in the show. I'm trying to think who he could play from the novels/games that would fit his look and style and Cahir comes to mind - witcher.wikia.com/wiki/Cahir_Mawr_Dyffryn_aep_Ceallach - Jaskier/Dandelion, Bonhart, Roche (if he's ever included) don't fit.
