The Three Musketeers -  Who's your favorite? by sparrowcrazy The Three Musketeers -  Who's your favorite? by sparrowcrazy
Because clearly I have nothing better to do than spend one and a half hour to put this together.

I've finally decided to finish reading the Man in the Iron Mask (which has a really tedious kick off) and it managed to get me right back into my swashbuckling fandom.:P

And since this is much more interesting than rereading my geology book I had some fun comparing all the different actors portraying the heroic group.:D (Well not all, I just picked the ones I've watched, except for the BBC one that only got to be here because I needed to have Santiago Cabrera in this.:P)

In horizontal rows from top to bottom:

Aramis: Santiago Cabrera, Jeremy Irons (best Aramis ever!) , Luke Evans, Richard Chamberlain, Charlie Sheen

Porthos: ?, Gerard Depardieu, ?, Frank Finlay, Oliver Platt (Jack Sparrow cosplay.. really?)

Athos: ?, John Malkovich ( Zzzz....... the best pokerface in the history of musketeers),Matthew Macfayden, Oliver Reed, Kiefer Sutherland

D'Artagnan: ?, Gabriel Byrne (the one and only D'artagnan for me..),  Logan Lerman,
Chris O'Donell
Michael York

So if you could pick your fav actors out of these, how would the four musketeers look? Would you keep them as they are or would you mix them up?

Personally I'd Keep Gabriel Byrne and Jeremy Irons from the Man in the Iron mask but swap Depardieu and Malkovich for Oliver Reed and Frank Finlay. :D

Yay! Feel the Barrowman love :D

I've been reading the other comments and I felt a need to discuss. I know that the new BBC series is meh and I was confused as hell by the beginning (I wasn't the murder/revenge plot) but I think that they were trying to find an angle on a beloved story which has, let's be honest, been done time and again. Tom Burke (Athos) said in an interview that of the story the beginning where D'Artagnan meets the Musketeers is the part that everyone remembers best and he was very pleased that they had gone with a fresh take. I'm not completely invested in the series but the show has enough 'moments' to make me at least willing to keep an eye on it.


Hey, have you seen Paul McGillion's show Captain Starship? I want to watch it but I can't find it anywhere :tears:

Haha yeah, well I'm not really a judge since I only watched the first 20 minutes or so... I guess one has to give it credit for being original at least. It true that the original version has been done over and over again, as with the BBC Merlin series it's not such a bad thing to try a new direction. But this time I guess it just wasn't my cup of tea... at least not enough to keep me watching... not now anyway. And I'm kind of fond of the book versions to be honest.^^ But I'm sure there are people who love it as well... but it does seem to have quietened down now.. I haven't heard anything about it since the first few weeks..:shrug:

Oh, you like Stargate?! Dubble Yay for that... :happybounce: The show needs more love... and yes huggles for Sheppard! :glomp:

No I haven't... indeed I haven't even heard much about it, other than the sequence shown in A Dog's breakfast.. or I think that was it anyway. It doesn't seem to exist anywere though which is weird for there use to be at least some mention of it... :shrug:

Funny how none of the Stargate actors seem to have any bigger project on hand though.. well not counting Jason Momoa who seems to have gotten a good start. I miss Joe Flanigan and David Hewlett...
Imagine my disappointment when I heard that Joe Flanigan was in my city and I didn't even know about it... OHGAWDNO.

OMG You missed out on Joe Flanigan?! Sad Hug Extended 

There's a trailer for Captain Starship on Youtube (LOL Daniel Jackson's his 'nemesis') and clips from A Dog's Breakfast. I think maybe it wasn't fully made except the pilot so maybe it's buried under loads of more important Stargate-connected stuff.

Yeah, I know right? David Hewlitt had a short cameo in the first Planet of the Apes remake and he's starring in a show called State of Syn (I know nothing). Joe Flanigan and Paul McGillion (la in love ) aren't doing much nowdays; Jason Mamoa is in a tv show called The Red Road (I know nothing) and is rrumoredto be starring as Aquaman/Arthur Curry in the upcoming Justice League film.

I know right! :cries: I found out when he posted a picture o twitter of himself in a cafeteria in town, in my fav part of town were I always go... and I was like "I know this place!" :iconlegaspplz:

Yeah that's all I've seen as well.. it's weird, but it might be as you said that it never got a proper kick off.:shrug:

Oh.. David Hewlet had a Plat of the Apes cameo.. Hmm I missed that movie.. I did see Paul Macgillion in Star Trek though.. for like one brief moment. I know Jason Momoa got pretty popular in Games of Thrones but then I'm not following that show either, but I can well imagine him fitting right in.=P
Justice League.. never heard of it but it sounds like something Marvel related.. am I right?
Heercums-N-Oxymoron Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2014
Yeah he played Karl Drogo, a big mean but cuddly horse warrior (if you Google too hard you'll hit a lot of spoilers). Game of Thrones is excellent: full of blood, gore, people you really really really wish were dead, interesting monologue and sex. Oh so much sex.

Um, kind of. Justice League is DC not Marvel: it's a group of planet-protecting superheroes who's base is a giant satellite floating around Earth. The group if led by Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.

Lmao, yes well now you know why I don't watch it, it's exactly the kind of tv I try do avoid. I'm not overly fond of tvseries that doesn't quite know the difference between good entertainment and porn.=P

Oh well.. same thing:XD: (Obviously not a huge Marvel follower since it probably a pretty huge difference for any fan.. :P)

Sounds interesting.. but hold on Superman and Batman in one movie.. isn't that the one were Ben Affleck in Batman?=P

Sorry my last comment was so message I was on my new laptop
what I meant to say was this is so awesome that you made this, I am on the books now and I see All the Kiefer gang of the musketeers growing into the Malkovich gang.  I haven't seen the Oliver Reed gang. But as you can see Athos is my favorite musketeers 
sparrowcrazy Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha that's ok I īgot the point. :lmao:

I'm reading the books now as well! :dummy: Or rather the second one.. I've read the first one some years ago.:D

I really recommend watching Oliver Reed's gang.. they are awesome! And idk about you but personally I think Oliver Reed as Athos is amazing. A bit more dark like in the books. The whole movie is more faithfull to the book then others to be honest.
My only problem is that D'Artagnan looks nothing liek waht i imagined him... for that I have Gabriel Byrne. Thought York got the characters personality down better than Byrne. Byrne lacks that impulsive, reckless and joyfull trait that D'artagnan always had, he's more like a slightly depressed D'Artagnan. :XD:
Needless to say that's my fav musketeer. :P And Porthos.. he's like a huge puppy... so strong and loyal and so very very silly. :XD:
