I’m still trying to process my feelings about this. But I knew the moment it happened I wanted to...
At the beginning of the episode, Mrs Hudson’s in the fridge,...
Mum and I were watching A Scandal...
Rory flirted with a Dalek.
I have so many ships that I’m about to open a goddamn harbor
I posted today that Meg and I spent about two hours debating who we would cast if Black Butler was made into a live action show. This is if we could pick the perfect cast, have the best budget, and all the time in the world to make it. We decided that we would pull from the manga and have very few things from the anime (mainly because neither of us are huge fans of the anime). We also threw in the musicals too mainly to have Alan and Eric.
We covered the majority of the main cast and a few of our personal favorites. So I present to you our favorite choices and why~
(and a few we’re still on the fence about)
Read through the list and tell me what you think~
1. Sebastian Michaelis
We debated this one for a while. We wanted someone who could play both the silly and the serious sides of Sebastian. And he needed to be damn hot doing it. In the end we chose Jude Law.
We think he’s the total package for Sebastian. We’ve seen in Sherlock Holmes that he can kick some butt and look damn good doing it. Plus, he could embody the demonic qualities of Sebastian.
2. Ciel Phantomhive
Ciel was one of the few characters we couldn’t place an actor with. But we both agreed that we would want it to be someone who was around the right age. We wouldn’t want it to be an older actor trying to play a preteen. He would need to make the audience love his vulnerability and then hate his cruelty. We just couldn’t think of anyone who fit that bill.
EDIT: sherokutakari suggested Asa Butterfield. I had never seen his movies so I didn’t think about him. Looking back at it, it’s the perfect choice
We wanted someone who could bring both Baldroy’s humor and maturity to this imaginary tv show. He’s a really funny character, but he’s a total badass with a very dark past. We also wanted to play in the manga canon where he was an American. When we realized it, we rejoiced over Jeremy Renner
He has those rugged qualities that Baldroy possesses, but Renner is a really funny guy. He would be able to play the sillier sides as well.
This was a no brainer for me. The moment we started talking about this concept, I knew Louise Brealey would be perfect
We know that she can play Mey-Rin’s sweet side from her work from Sherlock. But if anyone follows Louise’s twitter, they know she’s a totally awesome and tough woman. I have no problems imagining Louise whipping out pistols and kicking the crap out of people.
This was another one that Meg and I pondered for a while. Like Ciel, we wanted a younger actor that could really capture Finnian’s childlike demeanor. But at the same time, we needed someone who could capture his darker side. Being a nanny, I watch tons of Disney channel and Nickelodeon. As I was browsing through the actors on various shows, I came across our answer:
He still has that baby face, but has enough experience under his belt that with the right direction, he could do Finnian justice.
