4. Clive Owen


As good with a sword...

This Academy Award nominee has had roles in plenty of outstanding films, from critical darling sci-fi thriller Children of Men to the excellent Sin City.

But fans of the legend of Camelot will remember Clive Owen’s part in 2004’s King Arthur film, where he played the eponymous hero. The role proved Owen is a natural in a medieval setting – which is probably why, this 2015, he appeared in Last Knights, another film set in the Middle Ages.

Both films were panned by critics, but they don’t take away from the fact that Clive Owen would make a great character in a medieval fantasy film like the Witcher movie. And because of his enormous screen presence, he should be no one else but Geralt.

3. Gerard Butler


A scary, scary man

If you enjoy your fantasy films populated with sweaty, half-naked beefcakes, then there isn’t a chance in the world you haven’t heard of Gerard Butler.

Gerard Butler’s iconic role as King Leonidas in 300 made him the ultimate Hollywood badass, but did you know that in 2001, he also played Attila the Hun in the Attila TV miniseries? For those who don’t know, Attila is recognized as one of the most savage warriors and effective military leaders in history. Butler also lent his uber manly voice to the character Stoick the Vast in the How to Train Your Dragon movies – another manly man whose CG biceps are so huge you can fit five Hiccups in one arm.

For his impressive physique and unparalleled onscreen ferocity, we believe Gerard would make a great Geralt in the Witcher movie.


Someone just pissed him off

2. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau


Overly fond of his sister

There is no fantasy fan today who hasn’t heard of Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

This bad boy is turning heads (and stomachs) as the incestuous Jaime Lannister in the television phenomenon, Game of Thrones.

And we all know from that show that, as well as looking great in medieval armor, the man can act. Coster-Waldau is theatre-trained, who, as a young man, made his debut in a stage production of Hamlet. In 2005 he starred alongside Orlando Bloom in Kingdom of Heaven, a film set in the 12th century Crusades. And in 2016, he’s set to appear in Gods of Egypt, an epic fantasy film involving Ancient Egyptian mythology.

He’s terrific with the sword, has experience in medieval fantasy shows, and can pull off Geralt’s look. The Witcher movie would definitely be something with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as its lead.


His pretty boy good looks have the ladies swooning
