Euron Greyjoy

I see where you're coming from, but nah. He was crazy and evil in Django Unchained, but Samuel L. Jackson was the guy really running things. Even while, evil Leo was too.....I dunno civilized for my liking. HIs Wolf of Wall Street performance was too funny for me. I wouldn't be able to take him seriously as the king of the Ironborn.

But somebody I can think of who might pull it off is Simon Merrells, who played Marcus Crassus in Spartacus. He has the sophistication mixed with the battle cunning, a commanding presence and can be terrifying when both silent and fuming at the mouth.

He played a good evil in 'the man in the iron mask' but i think given the chance, since he hasn't played many evil roles, he could really do well.

Simon Merrells would be alright actually (haven't seen spartacus in a while didn't see past parts of season 2) but i don't think he has that attractive factor that Euron is supposed to have.

Julian McMahon is a good choice!

Spoken as a straight man, I disagree

He was obviously a lot leaner for the Spartacus role (everyone was)

I also really reccommend you watch the final season, War of the Damned, it is much better than the rest of the series

Yeh i should get onto that.

Speaking as a female who is also straight lol that picture isn't too bad, i mean he looks alright. But i expected sort of above-average-stands-out kind of handsome. i guess i just pictured something else in my mind

I see what you mean (added two more pics btw), the thing with me is, I always figured Euron looking comely compared to his brothers, while his magnetic personality would serve to make him really attractive to the Ironborn cause.



Merrells would stick out quite a bit when you put him next to Balon, Theon and Yara (im sorry, the girl is not pretty at all).

Simon Merrells definitevly not, I can't see him as Euron. Julian McMahon is a very good choice...

hahaha not quoted in this post but your penguin picture made me laugh :lol:

Too be honest, i don't like Euron, he's an awful person so his looks don't concern me too much. As long as the character is portrayed correctly i'm all good.

I think the actress who plays Yara acts the part really well. i guess its just disappointing to some male fans considering Asha was supposed to be really beautiful in the books. But then again Theon was supposed to be hot as well so we all got jooped on the greyjoys :dunno:

I don't think it's correct to say Asha was meant to be 'really beautiful'. She's hard and sexy and unconventional. Personally I find show-Yara fits the bill on this entirely (her writing is dodgy, yes, but there's nothing wrong with her acting or appearance, in fact she's one of my favourites - see especially her first scene, her scene at Winterfell and the end of s3)



Theon, yes, doesn't look like his book-self at all. But I watched season 1 before I read the books, and I think Allen is pretty much the best actor in the whole thing - just right for the best written character. I'm happy with two distinct Theons existing productively and simultaneously.

ha i said nothing about how they act, i think Alfie and Gemma perfectly act their roles. Both don't match their book's appearances, no, but as i said doesn't really bother me. Same as Euron, if they don't cast someone handsome ill neither be surprised nor disappointed.

Charismatic eccentric who thinks outside of the box but also sick violent lecherous psychopath with perverted world-view, paranoid tendencies and highly superstitious. Also advance enough impulse control brilliant strategic and tactical mind and otherworldly amount of vicious cunning.



I would picture him in a near constant power poses, sudden and aggressive gesticulation mixed with idle kind of gesticulation Jack Sparrow/Ragnar kind. His eye constantly watchful even in the impulsive or hedonistic behavior time periods while simultaneously taking great care not to seem as vigilant.



That is kinda like how I picture him and how I would prefer him to be acted out.
