    Casting call for Vampire: The Masquerade NPCs

    A fun little exercise, I think.

    Basically, who would you cast for the various NPCs in the setting.

    Any actor at any point in history.

    For Beckett I would go with Harrison Ford in his early 40's and he already played Indy and this would be a different take on one of his signature roles and for Hesha Rudhza I would go with Denzel Washington.

    I've said as much before, but Baron Harkonnen from the Lynch version of Dune is my head-canon image of August Giovanni.

    Antje Traue is also my ideal casting for Sturbridge.

    William Hickey from Prizzi's Honor informs my mental picture of Ausustus Giovanni. Though I suppose it's a moot point now.

    For Aisling Sturbridge maybe Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

    A tough list to consider and there is lots of good actors and actresses to choose from.

    Tremere: Peter Cushing as an aged manipulative arch master mage would be an interesting take.

    Lucita De Aragon: Salma Hayek would be good as the rebel childe of Moncada.

    Montono: Idris Elba would bring the weight of duty to the role of Lasombra's eldest childe.

    Arch Bishop Monacada: Mickey Rourke can play creepy people with ease.

    Sasha Vykos: I think David Bowie ( I know he was mainly a singer) would be awesome as the fiend and play gender bending stuff with ease.

    Theo Bell: Will Smith even with the fallout of slap gate is still an awesome actor and has done serious roles before.

    Fathima of Banu Haquim: Penelope Cruz.

    Lodin/Olaf: Mel Gibson is out of left field for sure, but he would be perfect for the role as both of them have seen better days.

    Talley: Brad Pitt because of what I saw in Killing Them Softly.

    Ambridgino Giovanni: I would go with Malcolm McDowell in his early 50's.

    I once made some lucita renders for the campaign we're playing. I used Penelope Cruz as base figure.
