    Haha! awesome casting I couldn't help smiling at the choice of Uthan, that's pretty much the way I imagined her.

    Was she? Thankfully I never had to endure any of that movie. I have heard the stories though, so I can see where that would put a damper on things. :p

    Oya Sam.

    So I haven't been able to post here from my computer for a while... it just kept telling me my message was invalid. Hence my silence.

    Regardless:
    No fair, you stole my nomination!! :( :p
    I think Ellen Page has the ability to portray both the youthfulness and maturity of the character all at once.Also, she matches up pretty well with how I imagined here visually.

    I nominate Miranda Otto, AKA Éowyn in The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

    Miranda Otto is a great actor, but unfortunately she's in her mid 40's. Remember we're trying to cast a character who's at least half that age!

    Dawson Casting. ;)

    Plus, Hollywood actors don't age. And I think Otto could pull it off.

    And Amy Adams and Anna Torve are both in their 30s. So there.:p

    Hey there, I'm a pretty regular member of the forums, and a pretty big fan of Mandalorians and Commandos. I've been stalking this topic for a while waiting for a good opportunity to help in the casting, because I'm honestly really bad at casting old dudes. But young, attractive women . . . oh yeah, I can totally do that.

    And for Etain, I would nominate Emma Stone:

    Because . . . well . . . she's Emma Stone. She can pull off a pretty impressive performance in a variety of roles (and haircolors) and I think she would do well as Etain.

    Oya H-Bomb welcome to the fanclub! Good nomination. If you are a fan of the Mandos then you should stick around and discuss our other Mando type topics when they come up.

    Dawson Casting sucks, and has no purpose unless the whole cast is supposed to be young(er). [face_phbbbbt]
    And maybe it's treu that Otto doesn't look any older now than she did 10 years ago, but 10 years ago she looked like a 30 year old. There's no way she could pass as someone who's supposed to be late teens - early twenties.
    Somehow I missed the Amy Adams/Anna Torve nomination but the same thing goes for them.

    What about Bardan's casting, Commander_Ducky? I imagine he's only a few years older than Etain, yet Sam Rockwell is in his 40s. I wasn't here when he was cast, so maybe the issue was brought up then as well.

    Plus, I always pictured Etain looking older than her age, so Otto could work, IMHO.

    Otto looks more like Jilka Zentis to me.

    It's much easier to make a 40+ year old man look like a mature 20+ year old then it is to make a 40+ year old woman look like a not-mature 20- year old.

    Woah, I can totally see that!

    It also made her look like she was only 4 feet tall.(She plays a villian of sorts I guess - I'd need my wife to explain it in detail). It could be the actors with her were just really tall :p

    Definitely an antagonist to say the least, along with the rest of the Volturi. The only reason I know anything about Twilight is my mom actually read the books and some aspects of the films, not related to the romance, were of sufficient interest to me to look up more details. The films irritate me so much.

    [face_laugh] So glad I stayed away from those then. I have heard rumors of sparkly vampires and that was enough to keep me away. My wife read the books just to see what they were about and was the first to tell me to ignore them. :p

    I too, like your wife, Bardan, read the books just to see what they were about and why there was such a fuss. The writing was admittedly good, however the story was absolutely awful. And I never even considered seeing the movies because, quite frankly, they look like a crime on cinema.

    My mom watches the movies when they come one television that I simply can't completely ignore them, so I have more familiarity with the movies than I would like.

    The casting looks pretty cool so far. I definately agree with Darth_Zandalor/Commander_Ducky, Ellen Page would be a good choice for Etain.

    Hey guys! Sorry I've been MIA for a while. Just been busy with other forums and selling and stuff. That's awesome that my nomination for Sephen Lang won the vote for Hokan! =D= For Etain, hm......I agree with Emma Stone. She's just awesome in whatever role she plays. So yeah, I can't offer any new nominations, but I concur with Emma Stone's.
