Marion Cotillard is your idea of a classic blonde bombshell?

Okay, then.
post #7403 of 7424

EYEROLLING YOU SO HARD, SCHWARTZ.

 

Headey's not blond, either. This isn't about hair color.

"Classic blonde bombshells ...." ....Overlord nods, liking where this conversation is heading .... "....Marion Cottilard ...."  ..... Overlord feels confused.

post #7405 of 7424
It's not just hair color. Cotillard also had a pronounced accent that would clash with the rest of her "family" and while beautiful, also has a distinctive facial "imperfection" that...complicates her look, I guess? She's just not what your description called to mind at all.

But I'm also a hardcore Headey partisan, so I'd not stand for your heresy no matter who you suggested.

Stop trying to make Cotillard happen.

post #7407 of 7424

Yeah, I can see why no one would think Cotillard could pull off the bombshell look.

 

 

And you guys are talking about hair color and accents? As if Peter Dinklage's accent in any way matches Charles Dances which in no way matches Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's.

 

And Emilia Clarke really does have silver hair!

 

I can totally see why my idea for Cotillard would break willing suspension of disbelief!

 

:P

You're the one who wants to replace one of the best performances on the show to better match the image in your head with an actress that is a worse fit for what you describe, bucko. I don't think the burden of proof is on those of us that like what we have.

I come here to get away from that shit, counselor.  

post #7411 of 7424

Worse fit is a subjective, purely speculative call. I think Rosamund Pike would've been an excellent Cersei.

 

But we have Headey. She's claimed the role. I've accepted it, and I enjoy her performance.

You can always demand trial by combat. I'll just pick nooj as my champion, though.

It's always weird to see Clarke's big beautiful brown eye brows and then this golden blonde hair.  Not that I'm complaining she rocks the look, but aesthetics on this show have long been kind of "eh fuck it."  Especially with the two Lannister boys being brunettes now.  

post #7414 of 7424

They shouldn't have even tried with Dinklage. Book Tyrion has mismatched eyes, nearly white hair, and we all know how fucked up his face is post-Blackwater.

 

I am glad they just stopped frosting his hair, though. And with NCW's hair shorn pretty short, they don't need to worry about it.

 

But yeah. The dark eyebrows are pretty funny. I always mock the elves in PJ's LOTR films for having them.

post #7415 of 7424

I didn't even notice it in LOTR!  Fuck.

post #7417 of 7424

AGHHHHH NOOOOO

post #7418 of 7424

So engaging in my semi-daily bored persual of clickbait articles, I happened upon the bit of trivia that one of the contenders for the Cersei role was Tricia Helfer.  Also, apparently Jamie Bamber auditioned for Jaime Lannister.

 

And now I'm stuck imagining an alternate reality where BSG alums are playing the Lannister twins.

 

(No, I don't think it would be as good...much love for the actors but they're not as skilled at their craft as Headey and Coster-Waldau...but Helfer definitely looks closer to what I'd have imagined book-Cersei to look like)

post #7419 of 7424

Helfer would've been a good choice! I don't know Bamber (I haven't seen BSG.)

post #7420 of 7424
Bamber's good. My first chice for Rick Grimes in TWD.
post #7421 of 7424

Helfer is the first suggestion I've heard for Cersei that I could actually see pulling it off.  But I think Yvonne Strahoski could have done better, after having watched her in The Handsmaid's Tale.

post #7422 of 7424

Haven't watch The Handmaid's Tale, but I'm sufficiently impressed by other work of hers that I can concur.  She would have been too young in 2011, though.

post #7423 of 7424

Hang on. Wasn't she the girl in Chuck?

post #7424 of 7424

She was, yes.
