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.
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. (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.)
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
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.
