Casting the Diablo 3 Movie
Enchantress – Svetlana Khodchenkova
After a solid cameo in last year’s Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, this Russian actress has the exotic accent and the otherworldly quality we’d look for in an Enchantress.
Scoundrel – Colin Farrell
Farrell is a hit with the ladies and something of a scoundrel in real life. He might even be convinced to grow some awesome facial hair for the role.
Templar – Brandon Routh
He’d need some Hollywood magic to make him look older and little more grizzled, but experience playing Superman will help him capture the Templar’s overzealous naivete.
Covetous Shen – James Hong
Acting legend James Hong provides the actual in-game voice for Covetous Shen, and his wonderfully weird performance deserves recognition here.
Haedrig – Robert Carlyle
Gauranteed to do a better Scots accent than the in-game voice actor. Also has the requisite beaky nose and angry eyebrows. Might need to pack on some “I’ve been wielding a hammer for my whole life” muscle.
