Who Would You Cast To Play In The Dragonlance Movies?

On Tuesday, I posted my interview with extremely talented fantasy author, Margaret Weis.  Since this is the 30th anniversary year of the first Dragonlance novel, Dragons of Autumn Twilight, I think it's high time we started to cast out characters for a motion picture series based on the books.  Take a few moments and put your minds back into the world of Krynn.  Go on, just try.  Now, what actors/actresses of today would fit those roles?  Post your cast lists here and we can discuss them.  There are no crazy suggestions, just suggestions.  Heck, I thought selecting Michael Keaton for the first Batman was going to be really bad, but now there's Ben Affleck.  Not sure they could get much lower...LOL.   

Go ahead post your ideas.  I think that David Tennant or Tom Hiddleston would do really well as Raistlin.


  1. I might be a little late to this but here we go I'll give the book character first then the Actor/Actress.

    Tanis Half-Elven - Kristofer Hivju
    Sturm Brightblade - Michael Fassbender
    Tasslehoff Burrfoot - Andrew Garfield
    Riverwind - Tahmoh Penikett
    Goldmoon - Elizabeth Frances
    Flint Fireforge - Mark Sheppard
    Caramon Majere - Eric Bana
    Raistlin Majere - Cillian Murphy

    Some of these performers are well known and some not to known but personally I think this would make a nice cast.

    1. Andrew Garfield for Tass sounds fun. Eric Bana would work for Caramon. Good list.
