Julian Rhind-Tutt, bit left field but he's a good actor who can be creepy enigmatic. If not Euron maybe Damphair. If nothing else he could be an excellent Marwyn.

Peter Sullivan is another terrific actor, has a very quiet, gruff, seriousness edge to him. Seems like he could be good ol Vic just a good soldier. However he is rather busy with the Borgias and the Hour.

Mads Mikkelsen is the one true Euron imho.

Offft that totally fits for me! Good shout.

Going to have to go with Richard Armitage for Euron and Ray Stevenson for Victarion (They resemble Patrick Malahide, too).

Now the opportunity for him to play Mance has gone, how about James Purefoy for Euron? Here in Solomon Kane.

Better yet, how about almost-Mance Dominic West?

The obvious choices for Victarion have been repeated ad nauseum (Stevenson, Kulich etc). Because they are all great choices :P

Hm, I'm really going for a family resemblance. I like my Greyjoy picks to look like Malahide now that he's become my head canon.

If everyone thinks Mads for Euron (agreed) then you can't go past Thomas Bo Larsen, a fellow dane, for Victarion. Not sure how good his english is but I saw both of them play off each other in 'The Hunt' the other night, and it gave me serious chills.

Mads for Euron is sold for me for months !

For Vic : Vladimir Kulich, Lars Mikkelsen, Thomas Bo Larsen, Karl Urban...

I'd love to see Ian McShane as Euron. Seems like he could perfectly pull off the character.

I'd love to see McShane on the show, but he's far too old to play Euron. This is what Euron is supposed to look like. Ian McShane is 60 years old, he could never pull off the look required for Euron.

But, he's one of my favorite actors, and I'd love to see him on the show.

The perfect Euron, in my opinion, is Mads Mikkelsen. But he's on Hannibal now, so I don't know if he's gonna be available. :unsure:

As for Victarion, they need to get Ray Stevenson to play him. Make it happen, HBO.

Yes, but he has to pass as Patrick Malahide brother... Malahide is 68, someone in his fifties is fine.

Yeah, but Patrick Malahide was supposed to look old. Balon was always described as old, with white hair...an exausted warrior.

Euron, on the other hand, is young, lean, imposing. Like I said above, the best choice would be Mads. Anyone that's older than him will have a hard time adapting to the character.

Stevenson is the perfect Victarion, but I keep picturing Eoin Macken (Merlin's Gawain) as Euron...

Somebody mentioned this before so I can't take credit for it, but it's a good shout: Joseph Fiennes for Euron. He would fit the part if they were directly taking from the book, but I supposed he's have to look aged in order for non-readers to get this is Balon's younger Brother.
