Ideal Casting

1. Michelle Rodriguez

Actress | Avatar

Known for tough-chick roles, Michelle Rodriguez is proof that there is a cross between beauty and brawn. She was born Mayte Michelle Rodriguez on July 12, 1978, in San Antonio, Texas, to Carmen Milady Pared Espinal, from the Dominican Republic, and Rafael Rodríguez Santiago, who served in the U.S. ...

Co-starring as Sergeant Cristina Salazar, callsign Jaguar. Michelle Rodriguez is exactly what I had in mind when I created Jaguar - a fiery, badass woman capable of delivering performances equally powerful and punishing.

2. Demián Bichir

Actor | The Hateful Eight

Demián Bichir Najera was born in Mexico City, Mexico, to Maricruz Nájera (María de la Cruz Nájera Botello), an actress, and Alejandro Bichir (Alejandro Bichir Batres), a theatre director. His parents met in the theatre. He has two brothers who are also actors, Bruno Bichir and Odiseo Bichir. Demián...

Demian Bichir is perfect for 2nd Lieutenant Emilio Cárdenas - a commanding officer and a father figure to both of the main characters. A leader equally grief-stricken and determined is a role that Demian can master.

3. Luis Guzmán

Actor | Traffic

Actor of Puerto Rican descent who gained fame making many memorable films in the 1980s and 1990s due to his villainous physical appearance. Guzmán born in August 28, 1956 in Cayey, Puerto Rico, but he raised in New York City's Greenwich Village, as well as the surrounding Lower East Side ...

I chose Luis to play Alejandro 'El Lobo' Vega, the nefarious drug lord of the Los Zetas cartel. He certainly has the look and the history of playing villains to embody the most dangerous drug lord in Mexico.

4. Emilio Rivera

Actor | High Crimes

Emilio Rivera has discovered that turning your life around is the key to making dreams come true. His acting credentials have allowed him to top the list of successful Latino actors. His resume continues to grow with starring roles in films such as High Crimes (2002) with Ashley Judd and Morgan ...

Emilio Rivera has experience playing villains, and he certainly has the look to play Joaquín 'El Chapo' Guzmán, the present drug lord of the Sinaloa Cartel.

5. Dianna Agron

Actress | The Family

Dianna Elise Agron was born in Savannah, Georgia, to parents Ronald and Mary Agron. She grew up in a middle class family, in Savannah, before moving to Texas, and later, San Francisco, California, due to her father's career as a general manager for Hyatt. Dianna and her brother, Jason, were raised ...

Dianna Agron proved that she doesn't have to be typecast as the innocent cheerleader with her performances in 'The Family' and 'I Am Number Four' - and I think she could do well as 2nd Lieutenant Alyx Wolfe of Delta Force.

6. Gael García Bernal

Actor | Mozart in the Jungle

Gael García Bernal was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, to Patricia Bernal, an actress and model, and José Ángel García, an actor and director. His stepfather is cinematographer Sergio Yazbek. García Bernal began his acting career as a child, working with his parents in a variety of plays. When...

Gael isn't an actor one would typically expect to play a powerful lieutenant of a major drug cartel - but the Los Zetas cartel is comprised of many faces, and subtlety is one of them. For this reason, Gael could pull off the role of Ignacio Rivera.

7. Álex González

Actor | X: First Class

Álex González was born on August 13, 1980 in Madrid, Spain as Augusto Alejandro José González. He is an actor, known for X-Men: First Class (2011), Scorpion in Love (2013) and The Good Boy (2005).

In 'X-Men: First Class', Álex González played a young and rebellious villain - which is exactly the role needed in playing Jesús Guzmán, son of the disposed head of the Sinaloa Cartel.

8. Felipe Calderón Hinojosa

Actor | Entre lo publico y lo privado

Felipe Calderón Hinojosa was born on August 18, 1962 in Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico as Felipe de Jesús Calderón Hinojosa. He is an actor, known for Entre lo publico y lo privado (2004), Chavismo: la peste del siglo XXI (2018) and 0.56% ¿Qué le pasó a México? (2010). He ...

There aren't any actors who resemble the former Mexican President Felipe Calderón Hinojosa - and I don't see why he would be against portraying himself.

9. Joaquin Phoenix

Actor | Her

Joaquin Phoenix was born Joaquin Rafael Bottom in San Juan, Puerto Rico, to Arlyn (Dunetz) and John Bottom, and is the middle child in a brood of five. His parents, from the continental United States, were then serving as Children of God missionaries. His mother is from a Jewish family from New ...

Joaquin Phoenix, best known for his role as Commodus in 'Gladiator', is no stranger to playing the role of a commanding villain in an untouchable position of authority. This could see him play Léonidas Velasquez, an unapologetically corrupt Mexican Army Commander.

10. Marko Zaror

Actor | Undisputed III: Redemption

Marko Zaror Aguad (Santiago, Chile) is a Chilean martial arts action star and fight choreographer, currently residing in Los Angeles, California. His career began as a young boy with a passion for martial arts and fighting, inspired by Bruce Lee. At the age of six he started training himself, and ...

Marko Zaror, the Latin Dragon, is certainly still in his prime. Still, he could easily play a position of power with his voice rather than his fists. Marko could easily portray Admiral Antonio Aurajo Aragon of the Mexican Navy.

11. Jason Statham

Actor | Crank

Jason Statham was born in Shirebrook, Derbyshire, to Eileen (Yates), a dancer, and Barry Statham, a street merchant and lounge singer. He was a Diver on the British National Diving Team and finished twelfth in the World Championships in 1992. He has also been a fashion model, black market salesman ...

Jason Statham is the perfect choice to play Lieutenant Andrew Frost, callsign Spectre. With his impeccable performances as a ruthless badass from 'The Expendables' and 'The Transporter', and he has proven he can also master demanding, leading roles with performances in 'Crank' and 'London' - simply put, Jason Statham is Spectre.

12. Stephen Lang

Actor | Avatar

A stage actor of great recognition, Stephen Lang has shaped a formidable career on and off the various stages of the United States and abroad. Though he is arguably most well-known for his acclaimed performance in James Cameron's Avatar (2009), Lang began his career in theater. Broadway roles ...

Stephen Lang played the imposing and intimidating Colonel Miles Quaritch in 'Avatar' - a role that proved to be very impressive. Stephen proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that he could play a man whose ends justified his means - and that he could portray General Adrian Hawke, the film's second main antagonist.

13. 50 Cent

Soundtrack | Get Rich or Die Tryin'

Born in the South Jamaica section of Queens, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson has lived in New York City all his life. He was raised by his grandparents after his father ran out and his mother was shot when he was only eight. Growing up, the Queens rapper originally wanted to be a heavyweight boxer, but ...

50 Cent, also known as Curtis Jackson, is much more than a rapper - he's showed his acting chops in 'Escape', 'Home of the Brave', and 'Righteous Kill'. He could easily play Lieutenant Demetrius James, the armourer for the Joint Task Force X.

14. Kellan Lutz

Actor | The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2

Actor and model Kellan Lutz was born in Dickinson, North Dakota, to Karla (Theesfeld) and Bradley Lutz. He has six brothers and a sister, and is of German, as well as smaller amounts of English, Swedish, and Dutch, descent. As a child, his family moved around, and he grew up in North Dakota, the ...

In both 'Twilight' and 'Legend of Hercules', Kellan Lutz showed his capability at playing a powerful protagonist - but I believe he could also play a great villain. For this reason, I cast him as Corporal Ulysses Washington, callsign Reaper.

15. Adam Rodriguez

Actor | CSI: Miami

Adam Rodriguez, best known for his role as Eric Delko on the internationally acclaimed CBS crime drama, CSI: Miami (2002) was just cast as 'Cookies' love interest on Fox's record-breaking series Empire (2015). Adam stars opposite Channing Tatum in the Warner Brothers feature film Magic Mike XXL (...

Perfect build and physique to play a special-operations soldier - and he's got the acting experience to back it up. Adam would do great as Lieutenant Diego Ramirez, callsign Scorpion, of the Cuban military.

16. Christian Meier

Writer | Terminal

Christian Dietrich Meier Zender was born in Lima, Peru on June 23, 1970. He's the youngest of four children (two brothers and two sisters) and son of Antonio Meier, businessman, and Gladys Zender, the only Peruvian Miss Universe (in 1957). When he was a boy he learned to play the piano and by the ...

Christian Meier, with a long list of roles in various Latin American television shows and movies, is one of Peru's finest actors - and as such, he could play President Alejandro Guevara easily.

17. Richard Madden

Actor | Game of Thrones

Richard Madden, born 18 June 1986, is a Scottish stage, film, and television actor best known for portraying Robb Stark in the HBO series "Game of Thrones" and Prince Kit in Disney's "Cinderella." Starring as David Budd in the BBC miniseries "Bodyguard" has also brought him more international ...

Captain Alistair Wallace, callsign Celtic, is one of Invictus' most intimidating characters, and the Scottish commander is an antagonist to be feared and respected. Richard Madden, as evidenced by his 'Game of Thrones' role, can play a man of that calibre without question.

18. Chris Pine

Actor | Star Trek

Chris Pine was born in Los Angeles. His parents are actors Robert Pine and Gwynne Gilford, and his maternal grandparents were Max M. Gilford, a president of the Hollywood Bar Association, and actress Anne Gwynne. His sister, Katherine Pine, has also acted. Chris's ancestry is Russian Jewish (from ...

Chris Pine showed clearly in 'Star Trek' that he can play the All-American American. In addition, he can play a sarcastic and cocky character - perfect for the U.S. Army Ranger's Corporal Eric Heisler, callsign Phoenix.

19. Adriana Lima

Actress | Ocean's Eight

Adriana Lima was born on June 12, 1981 in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. At the tender age of 13, Adriana entered the Ford Supermodel of the World Contest, where her unique beauty, derived from her Indigenous Brazilian, African, Japanese, Portuguese, French, and Caribbean heritage, won her second place. ...

Granted, Adriana Lima doesn't have the acting experience as many of the others on this list - but I don't think that changes the fact that she could play the confident Corporal Andrea Alvarez, callsign Eagle.

20. Saïd Taghmaoui

Actor | Wonder Woman

Saïd Taghmaoui was born July 19th 1973 in Villepinte, Seine-Saint-Denis, France, to Moroccan immigrant parents. He has 9 siblings. He dropped out of school at a young age and became a boxer; at one point ranking number 2 in France in his category. He met Mathieu Kassovitz with whom he co-wrote the ...

Saïd showed very well in 'G.I. Joe' that he could play a certain type of soldier - while he might seem meek, he's still very capable of standing up for himself. This landed him the role of Fahim al-Zakir, callsign Viper.

21. Sayed Badreya

Actor | Iron Man

Egyptian-born filmmaker and actor, Sayed Badreya, realized a childhood dream by winning roles in major Hollywood films such as Iron Man, The Insider, Three Kings, and Independence Day. He's also a renowned advocate for human rights and enriching the American culture through films and television. ...

With an impressive villain role in 'Iron Man', Sayed Badreya could deliver a perfect performance as the Taliban's own Zahir Abdul Qafar, the man who ruled Jalalabad.

22. Omar Borkan Al Gala

Self | Primer plano

Omar Borkan Al Gala, born September 23, 1990 (23 years) Dubai, United Arab Emirates is a model, fashion photographer and actor. His career began in Dubai as actor and model. Later he went to Vancouver to continue his studies in acting and modeling. He got famous after being on the news for getting ...

The young Omar Borkan Al Gala has garnered worldwide media attention for reportedly being deported from Saudi Arabia for being too handsome. While the story proved untrue, the fact remains that Omar is an impressive actor, and could nail the breakout role of Muhammad al-Khalil, callsign Shadow.

23. Liam Hemsworth

Actor | The Hunger Games

Liam Hemsworth was born on January 13, 1990, in Melbourne, Australia, and is the younger brother of actors Chris Hemsworth and Luke Hemsworth. He is the son of Leonie (van Os), a teacher of English, and Craig Hemsworth, a social-services counselor. He is of Dutch (from his immigrant maternal ...

With his roles in 'The Expendables 2' and 'The Hunger Games', Liam Hemsworth proved that he can step up to his brothers' plates and deliver. He would be perfect for Lance Corporal Joshua Turner, callsign Toad.

24. Karl Urban

Actor | Star Trek

Originally from Wellington, New Zealand, Karl Urban now lives in Auckland. Born on June 7, 1972, he is the son of a leather-goods manufacturer (who had hoped that Karl would follow in his footsteps). His first acting role was when he was 8 -- he had a line on a television series. However, he did ...

Karl Urban can play the badass Judge Dredd or the valiant Eomer - and a fair mixture of both of these roles could see him master Staff Sergeant Bishop Holmes, callsign Archer, the ghillie-clad sniper.

25. Lateef Crowder

Actor | Tekken

Lateef Crowder was born on November 23, 1977 in San Jose, California, USA as Lateef Crowder Dos Santos. He is known for his work on Tekken (2010), Wonder Woman (2017) and Furious 7 (2015).

Lateef Crowder is one of Brazil's premier martial artists and stunt performers - take a look at his performances in 'Tekken' and 'Undisputed 3'. His role also includes acting - and he would do Corporal Thiago Rua, callsign Piranha, quite a bit of justice.

26. Sam Worthington

Actor | Avatar

Samuel Henry John Worthington was born August 2, 1976 in Surrey, England. His parents, Jeanne (Martyn) and Ronald Worthington, a power plant employee, moved the family to Australia when he was six months old, and raised him and his sister Lucinda in Warnbro, a suburb of Perth, Western Australia.


Sergeant Tristan Black, callsign Raptor, is an interesting role - one part stealthy and meditative, one part vengeful and defiant. Sam Worthington could portray Raptor excellently.

27. Mark Strong

Actor | Kingsman: The Golden Circle

British actor Mark Strong, who played Jim Prideaux in the 2011 remake of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011), is often cast as cold, calculating villains. But before he became a famous actor, he intended to pursue a career in law.

Strong was born Marco Giuseppe Salussolia in London, England, to an ...

Major Victor Alenko, callsign Gryphon, is one of Invictus' greatest antagonists - one that is charismatic, cunning, and equally dangerous with his mind as with his fists. Mark Strong, as evidenced by his roles in 'Sherlock Holmes' and 'The Long Firm' show that he was made for the role of Victor Alenko.

28. Lázaro Ramos

Actor | Madame Satã

Lázaro Ramos was born on November 1, 1978 in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil as Luiz Lázaro Sacramento Ramos. He is an actor and writer, known for Madame Satã (2002), The Man Who Copied (2003) and Carandiru (2003). He has been married to Taís Araújo since June 9, 2011. They have two children.

Lazaro Ramos is one of Brazil's most recognizable acting faces, and he could transfer his skills easily over to Arturo Silva, the Anaconda.

29. Ghassan Massoud

Actor | Kingdom of Heaven

Ghassan Massoud (born September 20, 1958 in Damascus) is a Syrian actor and film-maker. He is best-known in the West for playing the role of the Muslim military general Saladin in Ridley Scott's 2005 film Kingdom of Heaven. He has also played the "Sheikh" in famous Turkish film "Kurtlar Vadisi: ...

Ghassan Massoud was a natural choice to play Abdullah of Saudi Arabia - his roles as Abu Bakr and Saladin effectively show that he can naturally embody the greatest rulers of the Middle East.

30. Blair Underwood

Actor | Deep Impact

Smart, confident, eloquent, exceptionally handsome African-American actor Blair Underwood was born in Tacoma, Washington in 1964, the son of Marilyn Ann, an interior decorator, and Frank Eugene Underwood, Sr., an army colonel. With his family, he lived all over the world. Trained in musical theater...

Blair Underwood doesn't look like he ages - and he's been using his charismatic persona in works like 'Ironside' and 'The Event'. Lieutenant General Jordan McKnight would be a great match for his character.

31. Brian White

Actor | The Family Stone

Brian White was born on April 21, 1975 in Boston, Massachusetts, USA as Brian Joseph White. He is an actor and producer, known for The Family Stone (2005), Stomp the Yard (2007) and The Game Plan (2007). He has been married to Paula Da Silva since August 28, 2010. They have one child.

I based my choice for Corporal Christopher Palmer, callsign Exxon, solely off of Brian White's role in 'Fighting' - the man is strong, and his other acting credentials only add to the choice.

32. Ryan Reynolds

Actor | Deadpool

Ryan Rodney Reynolds was born on October 23, 1976 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, the youngest of four children. His father, James Chester Reynolds, was a food wholesaler, and his mother, Tamara Lee "Tammy" (Stewart), worked as a retail-store saleswoman. He has Irish and Scottish ancestry. ...

Ryan Reynolds has a perfect physique, a good track record for roles such as this, and to top it off, he's a Canuck. This makes his role as Master Corporal Duncan Stone, callsign Orion, a sealed deal.

33. Fedor Emelianenko

Actor | Klyuch salamandry

Fedor Vladimirovich Emelianenko (born September 28, 1976) Fedor is a Russian heavyweight mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter. He is the current World Alliance of Mixed Martial Arts Heavyweight Champion and the last holder of the Pride Heavyweight Championship, Pride 2004 Grand Prix winner, four time ...

Fedor Emilianenko, the Last Emperor, has proven himself beyond any other to be the greatest pound-for-pound fighter on the planet. What's more, he's acted before. Sergeant Alexandr Kraznov, callsign Zero, is a role that requires someone who knows pain and agony - and I can think of no individual better to play the Spetsnaz operative than Fedor himself.

34. Naomie Harris

Actress | 28 Days Later...

British actress Naomie Harris was born in London, England, the only child of television scriptwriter Lisselle Kayla. Her father is from Trinidad and her mother is from Jamaica. They separated before she was born, and Harris was raised by her mother and has no relationship with her father. She ...

Sharing the same name aside, Naomie Harris has showed she can stand on her own in 'Skyfall' and 'Ninja Assassin'. She could bring the same performance to Staff Sergeant Naomi Williams, callsign Amazon - a woman who is truly dressed to kill.

35. Djimon Hounsou

Actor | Blood Diamond

Djimon Hounsou was born in Cotonou, Benin, in west Africa, to Albertine and Pierre Hounsou, a cook. He moved to Lyon, France, when he was thirteen. Hounsou has graced the catwalks of Paris and London as a popular male model. He has since left his modeling career and has worked on Gladiator (2000) ...

Take either 'Gladiator' or 'Blood Diamond' - both of these movies show Djimon Hounsou's great ability to perform. He could effortlessly play Commander Lutawo Muwanga of the Ugandan People's Defence Force.

36. K'Naan

Soundtrack | The Roommate

K'Naan was born on May 30, 1978 in Mogadishu, Somalia.

K'Naan has no experience acting, but it doesn't make too much difference. The role of Private Samuel Okello is very small, and it'd be a nice cameo appearance.

37. Abby Mukiibi Nkaaga

Actor | The Last King of Scotland

Abby Mukiibi Nkaaga is an actor, known for The Last King of Scotland (2006), Imperial Blue (2019) and The Silent Army (2008).

He played Colonel Bagosora in 'Sometimes in April', and Masanga in 'The Last King of Scotland'. That should give enough evidence that Abby Mukiibi can play Dominic Ongwen of the Lord's Resistance Army.

38. Carl Weathers

Actor | Predator

Carl Weathers was born on January 14, 1948, in New Orleans, Louisiana. A famous and successful football star at San Diego State, he played with the Oakland Raiders and retired from the sport in 1974, in order to give full attention to his goal: to be a real actor. Weathers first played small parts ...

People regularly mistook a photo of Carl Weathers in 'Predator' to be one of Joséph Kony. That resemblance proved to me that Carl Weathers could play the evangelical warlord - he certainly has the talent.

39. Nikita Mikhalkov

Actor | 12

Nikita Mikhalkov is the son of the famous communist poet Sergey Mikhalkov, who wrote the lyrics of the Soviet national anthem and had strong connections to the Communist Party. Nikita Mikhalkov's mother, Natalya Petrovna Konchalovskaya, was also a poet and daughter of famous painter Pyotr Petrovich...

The incredibly prestigious Nikita Mikhalov is both a writer, director, and actor, with a lifetime of theatrical experience. I believe he could play Admiral Andrei Emilianenko brilliantly.

40. Taylor Lautner

Actor | Twilight

Taylor Daniel Lautner was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to Deborah, a software company worker, and Daniel Lautner, a pilot for Midwest Airlines. He, and younger sister Makena, were raised in a well-mannered, Roman Catholic household in Hudsonville, Michigan. He is of English, German, Dutch, and ...

Don't judge me. Taylor Lautner is a fine actor, he's proficient in martial arts and stuntwork, and he's of First Nations descent - a perfect choice for Corporal Hiawatha Nightwolf.

41. Justin Rain

Actor | Fear the Walking Dead

Justin Rain is an actor, known for Fear the Walking Dead (2015), Lean on Pete (2017) and Mohawk (2017).

A First Nations actor who's truly on the rise, Justin Rain could play Dekanawida Stormsong with little difficulty.

42. Emilia Clarke

Actress | Game of Thrones

British actress Emilia Clarke was born in London and grew up in Oxfordshire, England. Her father was a theatre sound engineer and her mother is a businesswoman. Her father was working on a theatre production of "Show Boat" and her mother took her along to the performance. This is when, at the age ...

The beautiful Emilia Clarke could seduce a robot with a single gaze - and her acting prowess is nothing if not remarkable. The femme fatale role is one that she could embody perfectly - and as Anastasia Natalya Makarov, Emilia Clarke would deliver another fantastic performance.

43. Chet Anekwe

Actor | How to Get Away with Murder

Chet Anekwe was born in Lagos, Nigeria, raised in Jamaica Queens, New York City and now calls Los Angeles home. His work spans Hollywood, Nigerian cinema and New York theater. He can be seen in recent 2018 episodes of "How to Get Away With Murder" with Viola Davis,"The Affair" with Dominic West, "...

Chet Anekwe is big and strong. Okot Mbutu is big and strong. What else is there to say?

44. Javier Bardem

Actor | Skyfall

Javier Bardem is the youngest member of a family of actors that has been making films since the early days of Spanish cinema.

He was born in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain, to actress Pilar Bardem (María del Pilar Bardem Muñoz) and businessman José Carlos Encinas Doussinague. His maternal ...

Javier Bardem can easily portray a powerhouse - it comes naturally to him. Playing Sergeant Basilio Mendez would be a walk in the park.

45. Daniel Dae Kim

Actor | Lost

Daniel Dae Kim has made a career of creating multifaceted and stereotype-breaking roles as an actor, director and now, producer. Prior to his seven-season portrayal of Chin Ho Kelly on "Hawaii Five-0," Kim was best known for his role as Jin Soo Kwon on the hit TV series "Lost," for which he shared ...

Daniel Dae Kim is a great actor, as evidenced by his roles in 'Lost' and 'Hawaii 5-0'. While the role of Li Jong-un is small, it can still be a good chance to shine.

46. Til Schweiger

Actor | Inglourious Basterds

Actor, producer, writer, and director Til Schweiger is Germany's best-known actor and also the country's most successful director. With more than 51 Million admissions no other German filmmaker drew more people to cinemas. He runs his own production company Barefoot Films based in Berlin, Germany.


Til Schweiger can effectively play the German soldier - Sergeant Axel Broemme required a man like Til.

47. Shahid Kapoor

Actor | Haider

Shahid's rise to stardom reads like a bollywood script: from a struggler to a winner. With his hard work, perseverance and sincerity, he has written his own destiny.

Shahid is a mine of unabashed talent and spark, beneath his calm and innocent veneer. Shahid Kapoor is young and vibrant, with a ...

I wasn't able to find a Nepali actor - but the Ghurkas have a history that spans an entire continent. Shahid Kapoor, a well-known action star in Bollywood, could effectively play Quartermaster Sergeant Ramgahan Thapa, the Nepali Ghurka.

48. Liev Schreiber

Actor | Spotlight

Liev (pronounced Lee-ev) Schreiber was born in San Francisco. His mother, Heather (Milgram), is a painter, and his father, Tell Schreiber (Tell Carroll Schreiber III), is a theatrical actor who had a small role in The Keeper (1976). His mother is from a working-class Jewish family from Poland and ...

Liev Schreiber can play the bad guy, that's not up for debate. His roles in 'Salt' and 'X-Men Origins' stand alone. Liev is the perfect choice for Aslan Zakhaev, alias Tamerlan Akhmadov.

49. Imogen Poots

Actress | Green Room

British actress Imogen Poots was born in Hammersmith, London, England, the daughter of English-born Fiona (Goodall), a journalist, and Trevor Poots, a Northern Ireland-born television producer. She was educated at Bute House Preparatory School for Girls, Queen's Gate School for Girls and Latymer ...

Emily Hastings, a BBC reporter, is an admittedly small role, but the role belongs to Imogen Poots without question.

50. Kristofer Hivju

Actor | Game of Thrones

A second-generation Norwegian actor, Kristofer Hivju was born on 7 December, 1978 in Oslo. He is the son of actors Lieselotte Holmene and Erik Hivju, a prominent character actor who appeared with his son in the short film Flax, where Kristofer shared screenwriting credit with director Bård Ivar ...

A hefty Scandinavian with a glorious red beard? Fits Ragnar Thorgård, Norwegian representative to the United Nations, to a tee.

51. Carlos Santana

Soundtrack | La Bamba

Carlos Santana is a guitarist, composer, singer and band-leader who helped to shape the concept of "world music" by his experiments with blending many styles of music from a multitude of ethnic sources.

He was born Carlos Augusto Alves Santana on July 20, 1947, in Autlán de Navarro, Jalisco, Mexico....

Carlos Santana has never acted - but the role of the master Ahuizotl is one that could only be done by a man with Carlos Santana's calibre of worldliness and culture.

52. Michael Fassbender

Actor | Shame

Michael Fassbender was born in Heidelberg, Germany, to a German father, Josef, and an Irish mother, Adele (originally from Larne, County Antrim, in Northern Ireland). Michael was raised in the town of Killarney, Co. Kerry, in south-west Ireland, where his family moved to when he was two years old. ...

The primary antagonist is Mikhail Konstantinovich Arkhov, alias Archangel. A religious extremist inspired by his own divinity, a master at swordsmanship and marksmanship alike, and the ultimate example of righteousness, Archangel is one hell of a role. I can think of no greater actor to portray the Archangel Michael than Michael Fassbender.
