The Rock is playing Kamehameha!?! Cool. That's actually really great casting. And I fully agree - DDL is also a top choice of mine
for Kane as well! For what it's worth I think Viggo Mortensen would be perfect for Cormac Mac Art.
I always pictured Bran as much smaller in build though than someone like The Rock. Lithe. Lean. Pantherish. He has to have a certain sort of 'darkly exotic' appearance. Regal even. Like a survivor of the purest, most untainted line of a race that is almost extinct, as per Howard's own descriptions of the character. But also somewhat sinister and full of pent-up cerebral strength and fury. Bran was - for lack of a better term - one of Howard's more 'classically literary' characters if you know what I mean(???). More Hamlet than Beowulf! Bran was always written as brooding, melancholy, darkly poetic, and given to lengthy dialogue. Far more so than say, a Conan who was - let's face it - more about brute strength, action, and few words. For Bran you need someone who can really act.
If not DDL, IMO other reasonable choices could include:
Johnny Depp (Really...laugh first, but then stop and think about it.)
Mark Dacascos (TV's The Crow
, and Mani from Brotherhood Of the Wolf
Christian Bale (I know, I know...he's Batman now...but seriously, he could do it.)
Any other suggestions!?!
