Casting: Sierra Characters.

Post by Tawmis » Tue Mar 19, 2019 1:33 am

This thread and a thread on my Twitter for my Podcast (where someone posted 4 photos of actors and actresses asking who they should be cast as for comic book movies), made me think we should try something similar...

Feel free to expand on the below (for other characters who appear in the game)... These can be serious, fun, silly, whatever...

So...

King's Quest:
Sir/King Graham -
Valanice -
Rosella -
Alexander -

Gabriel Knight:
Gabriel Knight -
Detective Mosely -
Grace Nakimura -

Police Quest:
Sonny Bonds -
Marie Bonds -
Jessie Bains -
Officer Keith -

Leisure Suit Larry:
Larry. Larry Laffer -
Eve -

Quest for Glory:
Our Hero -

Space Quest:
Roger Wilco -
Sludge Vohaul -

Laura Bow:
Laura Bow -

Codename Iceman:
Naval Officer Johnny Westland -

Are we talking modern day actors, or can we choose from multiple eras?

I can't think of anybody yet for now. But just to add something interesting, how about a cast for a Sierra biopic? Who'd play Ken Williams, Roberta, Al Lowe, Scott Murphy, etc?

Gabriel Knight = Humphrey Bogart, maybe? Or Ed Bishop (who played Philip Marlowe on BBC Radio)?

Detective Mosely = Victor Mature? Peter Sellers?

Grace Nakimura = Miyoshi Umeki? Keiko Agena?

Alas. All the male actors I've picked are long gone. :(

If we are talking about actors from any time, then GK is obvious. Tim Curry from around Rocky Horror era.

I hate to admit it, but Paul Rudd is a great choice as Roger...
