Did you know:

The Hyasyoda megacorporation is part of the 'liberal' faction, but is internally extremely conservative in business and its internal culture, with a great deal of pressure for employees to 'fit in'? It is still largely owned by the founding Osmon family.

I think Wan would have to be played by Laurence Fishburne. This would be a pretty typical Wanoah pose:

I hadn't ever really considered this one before. I had to put some thought into and finally settled on Daniel Day-Lewis

I think it's pretty clear, for Silver: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBELC_vxqhI

Though I don't flatter myself that I'm that good. There are a couple of good, not very related points about argument and 'hand waving' in there, too.  :lol:

I think Hilion might need to be largely computer generated. Like Gollum.

Amieta... I'll have to think on.

Zu - Gina Torres - the woman who played Zoey in the series Firefly.

I'd have to think awhile on Deanna.

Attached photo for those that don't know who I'm talking about.  Obviously different hair style - but hair is a minor change with movie stars.

Edit: In hindsight - Zu should grow out her hair.

Too bad the only actress I'd pick for Shae is from the early 'talkies' era -- Nancy Carroll.

Holy crap, Shae, she even kind of looks like you!

I haven't got a decent actor right now, but Seriphyn would roughly be renegade Commander Shepard.

*nodnodnodnod*

Yeah, I'll get a decent one at some point.

I am somewhat (read: not really) ashamed to admit that the person that comes to mind for Morwen is Alizée Jacotey. (Additional image)

I blame Tainted Orphen's bio for linking me to the official music video for her song "J'en ai marre," and when I decided I liked the music, I poked around a bit and found this video (same song, from a TV concert or something) where I did a double-take when I realized she more or less matched my mental image of what Morwen looked like -- it was hard to tell in the first one with all the water.

The irony that Morwen is a musician in her spare time/as a hobby (from early on in RP), and that Alizée is a French pop artist, is not lost on me. :P

Morwen's Law:
1) The number of capsuleer women who are bisexual is greater than the number who are lesbian.
2) Most of the former group appear lesbian due to a lack of suitable male partners to go around.
3) The lack of suitable male partners can be summed up in most cases thusly: interested, worth the air they breathe, available; pick two.

Syyl'ara would be done by Mariska Hargitay, Law & Order: SVU's tough-but-tender Detective Olivia Benson.  Yaan'su I dug around for a while and came up with Reiko Aylesworth.

Hmm for Rob I'd love to say Samuel L Jackson but I'm pretty sure that he isn't badass enough (Rob not Samuel L Jackson obviously)

For Symon either Hugh Laurie with a mix of Bertie Wooster and House or

Robert Downey Jr with a mix of Tony Stark and Sherlock Holmes  :D

TONIGHT - WE WILL SHAKE THIS CAVE.

In light of the spate of A-listy and B-listy actors on the list, I'm gonna change mine to like...

...like if Mary Stuart Masterson and Jodie Foster had a love child that was a five-foot-ten fundie Brunette with a stare that could find purpose in the mining industry, I'd hire that.

Celeste used to be difficult to visualize.  Then I watched a few episodes of ABC's Better Off Ted.

Celeste = Portia di Rossi as Veronica Palmer.  Just give her silver hair and age her about ten years.

Vieve and Sabi?  Eeeeh.   This picture of Aishwarya Rai is close to Vieve (though Vieve's hair is black, and it'd be an explosion of curls if it was as long as Aishwarya has her hair in that photo).  Sabi looks more like Amanda Peet would if Amanda had to get herself in shape to take on the Linda Hamilton role in a Terminator 2 remake.

Best one I can come up with for Vik is Liev Schreiber.
