You've done an incredibly detailed job putting these together, and I know it has taken me a lot of time to process all of the alternatives. I LOVE your choices and can see how much you stopped and put each of these cast members into the personality of their counterparts.

Anything that has John Williams.... he's amazing! However, I think Howard Shore would be PERFECT!

Love, love, love that you have Brandon Gleeson in your cast list :D

Filming to be done in NZ? Yes!

Please don't be too despondent.....

You've put so much work into this I feel really bad for not having anything worthwhile to say on it. Fact is though, I can't summon up much enthusiasm for a film or TV version of the Silmarillion when I know that there isn't going to be one, at least in the foreseeable future. I'm also woefully bad at imaginary casting - there are a lot of names on your list I've never even heard of.

Maybe if you try to broaden the subject. You've obviously thought a lot about the characters in the Sil. Perhaps more people might join in with a discussion about favourite characters, not specifically related to who could play them.

The Casting Game

I once wrote (in More People's Guide to JRR Tolkien) that the casting game is really just a shorthand way for a fan to talk about how he or she sees the characters. If I see Tom Bombadil as (a younger) Brian Blessed, and you see him as a (still living) Robin Williams, we've had a brief conversation. The array of Hollywood actors, living and dead, becomes a kind of shorthand, like the language in the Star Trek Next Generation episode 'Darmok'.

Indeed, I see little point to the game otherwise.

seems like a fun idea. I always imagined Tulkas as Tolkiens version of Thor.
I'd like the cousins Turin and Tuor played by the same actor, since they never meet face to face. Different hair and dress and of course played differently. Could be done

Im afraid it's quicker to tell you which ones I do recognise!

From your first post:
Liam Neeson, Christian Bale, Daniel Craig, Hattie Moraham, Emma Watson

From your second:
Jason Isaacs, Domnhall Gleeson, Ewan McGregor, Tom Felton

From your third:
Alicia Vikander, Paul Bettany, Eva Green, Idris Elba, Asa Butterfield

Fourth:
Timothy Spall, Burn Gorman, Brandon Gleeson

Fifth:
William Moseley, Lily James, Freddie Highmore, David Tennant

I've never heard of any of the other actors you've listed - so though I take the point someone else made about this being a way of discussing the characters, I'd say it only works if everyone involved knows who the actors are!

But I'm interested that you've included Paul Bettany - he was always my first choice for Thranduil. I also used his face once as model for drawings of Elladan and Elrohir.

It also intrigues me that you've named Andrew Davies as writer. I think he would be a very interesting choice, partly because his adaptations are so good, partly because he is never afraid not only to cut things to bring outessential elements of the original, partly because he's never afraid of adding things if he feels it's necessary.

Huh? The Istari do not appear in Middle-earth until about the year 1000 of the Third Age or a bit later. And your casting suggestions for them are awfully young. How do they figure into the downfall of Númenor?

They came therefore in the shape of Men, though they were never young and aged only slowly, and they had many powers of mind and hand.

I suppose that could work if they are the messengers of the Valar to Tar-Atanamir (changed or extended to Ar-Pharazôn?). Those would still be very minor roles.

I'm not familiar enough with some of the actors to render opinions on all of them; but, keeping Hugo Weaving as Elrond and Daisy Ridley as a possible alternative to Liv Tyler's Arwen are good ideas (I might suggest Emma Watson or Saoirse Ronan for Elrond's daughter--although it might be better to find Ronan a role where she can keep her natural hair color).

Journeys and Errantries


In Reply To

Aragorn rode with Thengel, Théoden's father during his period of great journeys and errantries, starting in his twenty-seventh year and lasting for twenty-three years. Théoden was just a boy and his wife would not enter the story. After his time in Rohan, Aragorn (under the name Thorongil) served Ecthelion II, the father of Denethor. Denethor guessed at Thorongil's true identity and suspected that he and Gandalf were plotting together against him.

It was also during this twenty-three year period that Aragorn first explored the distant East and the far South, "where the stars are strange." It was after his time in Gondor that Aragorn, desiring to return to Rivendell for a while, visited Lothlórien and was reunited with Arwen for the first time since his twentieth year.

Oops!

Sorry, Tolkien wrote that Aragorn began his journeys and errantries when he was twenty-six, not twenty-seven. However, that might have to be modified if you are staying within PJ's continuity. It's not clear when Gandalf might have first met Aragorn in the movieverse: it might have been before the Quest of Erebor or after the Battle of Five Armies. If you stick with PJ's timeline, you get something like this:

2915 - Aragorn is born.
2917 - Arathorn is slain, Gilraen takes Aragorn to Rivendell where he is fostered as Estel.
2935 - Aragorn turns 20, is told of his true name and heritage. He first meets Arwen and goes off into the Wild. Probably in 2939 Aragorn meets Gandalf and they become friends. If they meet as late as 2941 then move the dates of Aragorn's journeys and errantries up one year.
2941 - Aragorn begins his period of great journeys and errantries.
2964 - Aragorn leaves the service of Gondor and is reunited with Arwen in Lothlórien, where they plight their troth.

At some point, either during this time or presumably before Balin attempted to reclaim Moria, Aragorn himself was in Khazad-dûm--on what business he would not say, but Gandalf was not part of it. If you want to keep the year 2980 for the betrothal of Aragorn and Arwen then you could posit a much longer period of wandering and service to Rohan and Gondor.

Keep in mind that Elrond's words were spoken over sixty years after the Quest of Erebor. Tolkien's Aragorn was not so conflicted. His experiences helped prepare him for the fight against Sauron and his destiny as ruler of the Reunited Kingdom. In the films, the Dúnadan feels that he does not have the right to ask Arwen to abandon her kin and her immortality for his sake. However, his travels and experiences still lead to his growth as a character and prepare him for the future. In a deleted scene from PJ's LotR Arwen still commits herself to Aragorn in Lórien however reluctant he is to accept that commitment.

I guess that I was going to have them mixed up,

Where Aragorn serves under Ecthelion first, and meets Denethor. Denethor resents Aragorn and Gandalf. Afterward, he travels to Rohan, serving under Thengel, and meets Theoden. The idea I had was that Theoden would be a young man, not yet married, but has a liking for Elfhild.

Peter Jackson has already screwed that up for you, unless you are going to ignore his films.

EOWYN: My uncle told me a strange thing. He said that you rode to war with Thengel, my grandfather. But he must be mistaken.

ARAGORN: King Théoden has a good memory. He was only a small child at the time.

Although even in Tolkien's canon, Aragorn served in Rohan before he went to Gondor. If we leave Théoden's backstory unaltered then he was born in TA 2948. Thengel became king in 2953. This works well with the dialogue above and with the timeline I proposed earlier.

In Tolkien's legendarium Théoden became the seventeenth King of Rohan in TA 2980 in his thirty-second year. I don't see any point where Aragorn would encounter Théoden as an adult until the War of the Ring when Gandalf and the Three Hunters come to Edoras.
