Any experienced sorceress/seductress role would do. She was just downright evil in Romeo is Bleeding, and I'll never forget that laugh towards the end.

Ralph Fiennes:

Has anybody thought about parts for him in the saga?
I keep thinking about Valannus in "Beyond the Black River."
I'd enjoy hearing aout other thoughts.

Willem Dafoe:

And how about potential roles for him in the saga.
Somebody who happens to be smug,smarmy,irritating and annoying.
Now,that's NOT a total projection on my part.
i'm not irritating and annoying.
I'M OBNOXIOUS!

Well,I just got finished watching a marathon of "beastmaster" episodes,and,to be quite frank,rather enjoyed them.
I found myself rather impressed with this particular actor.What roles,if any,do folks imagine him portraying in the saga?

1.)Thoth Amon
2.)Olgerd Vladislav(needs a wig and a beard).

Any others?

Yeah, I could see him as Thoth-Amon.
"Did you deem yourself strong, because you were able to twist the heads off civilized folk, poor weaklings with muscles like rotten string? Hell! Break the neck of a wild Cimmerian bull before you call yourself strong. I did that, before I was a full-grown man...!" - Conan, in "Shadows in Zamboula", by Robert E. Howard
"... you speak of Venarium familiarly. Perhaps you were there?"
"I was," grunted [Conan]. "I was one of the horde that swarmed over the hills. I hadn't yet seen fifteen snows, but already my name was repeated about the council fires." - "Beyond the Black River", by Robert E. Howard

I can easily see him as Thoth-amon.

Well,as I mentioned recently,I spent the holiday watching a "Beastmaster" marathon.
What roles,if any,do we see him portraying in the saga?
I saw him as Valerius in "Witch Shall Be Born."
Also,Baltus in "Beyond the Black River"
Any other suggestions?

Maybe Murilo. I think of Balthus as younger.

Daniel Goddard looks kind of Brandon Lee-ish, huh?

I don't see him as Conan. He looks more like an agile Tarzan than a hulking, battle-hardened barbarian. Maybe it's just me, but he doesn't look big or tall enough. And he looks a little creepy...

Basedow IS creepy (what. the. hell. is wrong with his hair?!). My wife and I used to get much enjoyment out of mocking his fitness commercials. But if he must be in a Conan movie, maybe Conan could chop him in half on his way to a real fight or something...

Charlotte Comer:

I just finished watching a special on the History Channel this afternoon about Boudica,the Celtic queen who led a revolt against the Romans in Britain c. 60 AD.
This actress was portraying the title character,and seems from,what I was able to see, as good material for somebody in the Saga.Womanly,strong,well built(in all senses of the word)passionate,etc.You should get the drift.
She appeared on 2000 in 2 episodes of the series'Dark Knight.'
I could see her as either Red Sonja or Karela.Maybe with a dye job as Belit.
Any other observations.

Nice to see you again Hans, I missed you.

But I have to say that I am resistant to the idea of casting someone in a Conan film just because they show up in a ancient history epic, although it may be easier for some to visualize her in such a role.
