7 Actors That Could Play Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher Movie

There are some rumors that a movie based on the epic adventures of witcher Geralt is in the works. Not much is known about the production yet but we have our top casting picks!

1. Sean Bean

Could Ned Stark pull off Geralt of Rivia? Sean Bean definitely has played many a knight and he might have what it takes to battle magical creatures. He did it all through Middle-Earth and it seemed to work out just fine, right? We're not saying that he's our top pick, but we do feel sorry that his time on Game of Thrones was cut short.

2. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

Summit Entertainment

Another Game of Thrones star that might have what it takes is Sir Jaime Lannister. We think he could definitely play Geralt, especially if he can figure out how to grow that hand back. He has the looks for it and definitely knows how to use a sword. He'd look very good with two of them on his back.

3. Gerard Butler

Summit Entertainment

The good thing about this guy is that he wouldn't even need to change his name too much for the role. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's co-star from Gods of Egypt has also no small amount of experience in sword-handling and horse riding. He could definitely play Geralt of Rivia, but is he our favorite? We're still not sure.

4. Hugh Jackman

There are a lot of superheroes on this list and this is one of them. Like Geralt, Wolverine is definitely a man of superhuman strength. He does have the right physique for the part too. It's difficult not to see him as one of the best ones for this part.


5. Chris Hemsworth

Another superhero, the hammer-wielding Thor could also be considered for the part of Geralt. His light hair and blue eyes are an added plus. We're just not sure if his personality matches that of Geralt well enough.

6. Josh Hartnett

With his most recent show Penny Dreadful coming to an end, Josh Hartnett could be wide open to take on the part of Geralt. His experience with various weapons is definitely an asset. Although, the biggest advantage might just be the animalistic side he showed to us on Penny Dreadful. After all, Geralt is also known as the "White Wolf." Josh Hartnett would have no problem embodying that part of the witcher's spirit.

7. Jamie Dornan

Last but not least, it is up to you if this guy deserves to be on this list. Known for his roles in Fifty Shades of Gray, Once Upon a Time, and The Fall, he's definitely got the face for the part. Could he raise up to the challenge and become Geralt we would be proud of? It's not certain, but based on his amazing acting skills in The Fall, he could at least give it a try.
