Which actors would star in a Broken Sword movie?

I like Domhnall Gleeson for George.

I don’t think I’ve seen any George-style goofiness from him, but have no doubt he’s got the acting chops to pull it off.

That’s the thing. An actor can ACT like a character but they don’t all have the physical characteristics of the character. I like your choice.

Justin Long could work too.
Domhnall Gleeson would probably make me like George more than I do currently. He’s very sneakily sexy in pretty much everything he is on. Smile

And he’s the right age. I like the pick.

He hasn’t really done a lot of goofy roles, but he can definitely pull off adorkable characters.

And my Nico, Audrey Tautou.

She’s a bit older, but obviously a beautiful and very youthful looking 43. (I was shocked to see Gleeson was 37 himself.)

He looks way too young. I’d want someone with actual facial features and not a face like a baby.

I don’t know, George definitely looks 40+ in most images.

There are lots of older-looking pics of Gleeson readily available. I just grabbed one where he was clean shaven and not too red-headed for comparison to George.

Hey Guys. I just released a Broken Sword movie casting video with all actors chosen between all forms of social media. I think you will like the choices made. My favorite Is John Cusack as Khan.
I hope you like it.

I feel like Audrey Tautou is a bit too quirky for Nico. Maybe because I strongly connect her to “Amelie”. She seems a bit too “happy space kadet” or “adorably goofy”, but definitely perfectly French Laughing 

By the way, is there some kind of consensus about the age of Nico and George in-game?

There are so many great nominations for a few of the main characters albeit comparisons difficult as they’re presented differently in subsequent games.
But as they’re all actors any one of those suggested would do a good job.
Here’s another nomination for the part of Nico: English actress Rebecca Hall who seems to look the part:

My favourites for George are Chris Pine, & also Domhnall Gleeson great choices

Luhr28 -as far as Domhnall Gleeson goes you need to look up the actor’s interviews on YT to appreciate he also has a humour that would match George’s & there are of course alternative pictures:

 

Jude Law does seem to be a good match for Andre Lobineau in BS 3? But hey, Andre’s blonde so I present to you a couple of alternatives who with exactly the same hairstyle (i.e. pony tail) could present a guy that I perceive to be a little older, attractive enough to be a threat to George & with a tad of sleaze that these 2 very talented actors would be capable of injecting - Richard Brake & Laurence Fox:

My initial thought about Audrey Tautou is also that she’s too adorable to be Nico. But I don’t know, it might work if they tone down the quirkiness, surely she can act a character that’s more serious and driven.

It could be Amelie. Have you seen her in Da Vinci Code? Kind of a Nico-ish role but with more seriousness.

I agree, she would make a perfect Nico. I’d buy a ticket for sure. The Da Vinci Code kinda reminds me of Broken Sword adventure anyway. I loved The Da Vinci Code Computer game.

since this is all some imaginary nomination of roles, i think Brad Pit and Kate Blanchet are perfect, imagine Kate Blanchet the master of accents dying her hair.

we dont need to be shallow to choose actors with the look and nationality too, they are actors and they can fit many roles.

It reminded me even more of Gabriel Knight 3! They both riff off “The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail” rather blatantly. Of the two, I’d take GK3 any day.
