more than meets the eye....

well, i'm not sure about "older" but Bard is the typical everyman character that comes to his own as the story progresses. thats why i thought Barnes would do well in that role. and he can look scruffy-- he just finished an indie film called "Valediction" where he is quite rugged looking.

as for looking sinister for Thranduil, thats wasnt my primary qualifier for casting, but more of who could convincingly look like he could be Orlando Bloom's Legolas' father. there is a likenes between the two, although quite frankly i have no clue if Barnes can pull off the blonde look. in any case i wouldnt put it past Barnes to play sinister. from what i've seen of the "Dorian Gray" adverts Barnes can be pretty nasty basterd, his eyes can convey a lot of darkness (literally and figuratively).

edit: one other thing, Barnes isnt that young anymore either, he is 28. being kingly and full of wisdom will probably be a walk in the park for him at this point since he's doing Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
