    I thought Stuart Townsend looked very much like Elric should in the film "Queen of the Damned".

      Hello, Townsend would be pretty cool.

      Ant has a thread somewhere, that has alot of possibilities to choose from.


      Did you know that Stuart Townsend is in the new Nightstalker (Kolchack)
      on ABC?

          Yeah, too bad he is not a little younger, there is a pict of him on the casting archive as Elric.

              How about Scott Weiland? (Velvet Revolver,Stone Temple Pilots)


              I know he is not an actor, but he is very thin.

                Mike's very clear that Elric must be played by somebody who can act, and act well!

                        Paul Bettany would be an excellent choice I believe....

                        Good acting , and very physically able to pull off our sickly albino protagonist !! ( not being a musclebound wrestler type, I mean )

                          Hard To Say!

                          God, it is so hard for me to choose somebody to play the tortured albino princeling...most of the actors on here being suggested just are not doing it for me! Cillian Murphy, maybe, Crispin Glover--well, he has the look, if it weren't for the fact he's a bloody psycho puppy...it's impossible for me to choose the right person, as they have to have the perfect combination of looks and acting ability. And I've yet to see anybody who I think can hang with the role. So sue me...*shrug* Orlando Bloom can certainly act and has the look, but I think he's sick of period pieves for a while!

                            Ewan McGregor should play Moonglum. Timothy Dalton should play Yarkoon. Cillian Murphy could play Elric.

                              A new suggestion for Elric from the TV show Hustle is Marc Warren.
