Casting a traditional Conan is challenging, to be sure. I like the 13th Warrior guy someone submitted. I assume that actor in question was the blond bloke who played the noble but doomed warrior prince who dies of poison after defeating the bear-priestess and her warlord. What an unbelievably great film that was. One of the unsung masterpieces of the genre.
But, kids, let's bite the hauberk and go the other way.
I'm talking about god-awful choices for the Cimmerian.
How about this:
Jason Alexander as the neurotic, parka-clad "nineties Manhattan" Conan? As a youth he survives being chased by pawn-broker/loan sharks through a snow-bound Central Park - stumbling upon the dead body of a hoary, skeletal money-lender. In desperation he tears a cash pouch from the lender's frosty dead fingers and uses the coinage to pay the debt - only to have the greedy usurious corpse reanimate and try to charge interest?
