The only casting requirement suggestion that I have is that Thom be played by Jeremy Irons.

What suggestions do y'all have?

Emilia Clarke as Nynaeve. Her and her eyebrows would do wonderfully.

There are so many people I'd like to see in it, now I just need to figure out what would actually be a good fit.

Starting out, I would say Mads Mikkelsen for Lan.

I would also like to see Nick Offerman as a role...I feel like he could play any of a dozen characters.

Emilia Clarke as Nynaeve. Her and her eyebrows would do wonderfully.

If it wasn't Emilia Clarke, I could also see Alicia Vikander since sometimes I can't tell them apart.

I feel like the boys and the young women- all the primary protagonists- should be played by unknowns.

... I am firmly convinced that Meryl Streep would be the best Cadsuane.

I would love to see David Tennant as Padan Fain. I absolutely think he could pull it off.

I'd love to see Mike Colter (Luke Cage) as Juilin Sandar.

John Rhys Davies as Bayle Domon.

I agree with everything except Mike Colter. Isn't Juilin supposed to be a small, slight man? That's how I always pictured him, anyway. Maybe I'm wrong. I don't remember his descriptions.

Bradley James for Rand. He would be perfect, especially after his run on Merlin.
Yes. This must be. Also, I must watch Merlin.

I would not be sad about Bradley James as Rand, though I like the idea of bringing in newer actors so we can observe their growth through the series.

Bradley James is too old at this stage. He's my age.

All the fantasy casting I've done over the years probably needs to be updated :P

I always thought Sean Connery would make a great Thom. Right age, great voice for a gleeman... I wouldn't be mad about Jeremy Irons either though.

@Dnae Ila

From the WoT wiki:

A native, and a Tairen thief-catcher by profession, he is dark-skinned with black hair and dark eyes, and often carries a notched sword-breaker and a slim bamboo quarterstaff.

So I have been thinking all day about who would be a good Thom for the show- and for me it really comes down to one person. What do you guys think about this as a pick.

Mads for Lan is a great idea, I do love him. I kinda imagine Nina Dubrev as a young Lanfear.

She'd be so good!!
She can be both sweet (Selene) and evil (Lanfear) really well.

Yeah she is from one of my guilty pleasures aka Vampire Diaries. Where she did play a sweet and evil person..So I thought it was a great fit.

For me, the only correct person to play Lan would be Viggo Mortensen. You know, Aragorn :look: Proper rough rogue look, and swordskill :)
