Wizard Jeff Bridges can bring in the talent, as the casting calls for Seventh Son have demonstrated. Bridges will play a wizard mentor to a young boy and girl that are in the process of being cast. It also appears that Julianne Moore is close to playing a witch, a pairing that will require very little suspension of disbelief.
Thesps expected to test for the role of Tom include Sam Claflin, Caleb Landry-Jones and James Frecheville, while Imogen Poots, Felicity Jones, Alicia Vikander, Gabrielle Wild and Dianna Agron will test for the role of Alice. Neither Legendary and Warner Bros. would confirm.
I just had to Google like every single one of those names, except for Imogen Poots. “Imogen Poots” sticks with you after the first time you hear it. The good news is that all the actors and actresses in consideration are extremely attractive. Whew. That was close.
Further, all the actors are white. Whil I am an extremely open-minded person, I don’t believe that America is yet prepared for ethnic wizards. I’m not happy about it either, but it’s true. Every night I pray that I will see a Latino wizard in my lifetime, but cultural consciousness just isn’t there yet. Light a candle.
