Winner:  Patrick Stewart

Runner-up:   Christopher Walken


Winner:  Paul Bettany    

Runner-up:   Johnny Depp



Winner: Morena Baccarin


Runner-up: Catherine Zeta-Jones

Catharine Zeta-Jones made a strong initial showing, but at the end of the day Morena Baccarin leapt from behind to claim victory. Morena may be best known as Inara from Firefly; as such, she's got prior experience with Nathan Fillion, our Daine!  Click here to see all of the contenders!



Winner: Ralph Fiennes


Runner-Up: Gary Oldman

There were a lot of excellent suggestions for King Kaius III – so many that, at one point, we had an eight-way tie! Click here to see the full list.

So, we've covered the main characters in MY novel, and one of the iconics of Eberron as a whole. But where do we go from here? This week, instead of casting a particular character, I want to know which characters you want to cast! Let us know!


Michael Clarke Duncan

Runner-Up: Vin Diesel

We had a good range of ideas for Pierce ranging from those who could physically carry off the part to people chosen purely for their vocal talents. In the end, Michael Clarke Duncan (of The Green Mile, Sin City, and many others) narrowly edged out xXx's Vin Diesel. Click here to see a full list of suggestions!


Kevin Spacey

People had a VERY hard time agreeing on Jode, and we don't even have a clear runner up. But at long last, we did get a winner: Kevin Spacey, who's even modeling the bald look for Superman. Click here to see the full list of suggestions!


Winners: Kate Beckinsale and Jennifer Garner  

Lei drew considerably more suggestions than Daine, and we finally ended up with a tie for first place. Personally, I've had a soft spot for Kate Beckinsale since her work in Cold Comfort Farm (the inspiration for the green family in Gloom), and I think she's slightly more aristocratic in her demeanor, but I think either of these two could do a fine job.

Not only were we tied for first place, we had a four-way tie for second, between Gillian Anderson, Alyson Hannigan, Natalie Portman, and Kate Winslet. Hmm… John Cusack and Alyson Hannigan as Daine and Lei? I have to say, it's a movie I'd be curious to see!

Winner: Nathan Fillion

Runner-Up: Hugh Jackman

We received a surprising range of suggestions for Daine, ranging from Lord of the Rings veteran Viggo Mortenson to High Fidelity's John Cusack. But after a hard-fought battle, the title went to Nathan Fillion, perhaps best known as Captain Malcolm Reynolds of the television show Firefly. As it turns out, he's also the person I cast my vote for! Click here to see the complete list of suggestions!
