City of Last Chances: 

Fantasy Spoof-cast


A return, after some time, to my occasional practice of spoof-casting a book with actors who seem to fit the roles. Most of the time I don’t have real people in mind at all, when I’m writing. Very occasionally someone does intrude – in this case Capaldi was irresistible as Ivarn from the get go, and impossible to shake. Other roles were profoundly hard to find a good fit for. Also, you can absolutely see what I’ve been watching recently from some of the picks. 

Here we go, though, the absolutely made-up and spurious casting call for City of Last Chances.











Shoreh Aghdashloo as Langrice, the Innkeeper











Elliot Page as Yasnic, the Priest










Stellan Skarsgård as Blackmane, 

the Pawnbroker











Zendaya as Lemya, the Student











Diego Luna as Ruslav, the Thug









Claudia Black as Carelia and 

Evene, the Revolutionaries











Ben Mendelsohn as Hegelsy, the Inquisitor











Peter Capaldi as Ivarn, the Academic











Tom Hopper as Hellgram, the Soldier











Rory McCann as Culvern, the Governor









Dev Patel as Shantrov, the Artist












Dominic Monaghan as Fleance, the Thief












Nimra Bucha as Vidsya, the Aristocrat












Andy Serkis as Orvechin, the Foreman












David Strathairn as God












Denise Gough as Aullaime, the Conjurer












Vivienne Acheampong as Nihilostes, the Cultist












Toby Jones as Dostritsyn, the Scavenger
