Good grief, this thread is over 1550 posts long. I wonder how long it would take for someone to go back through it and compile a list of the most popular casting suggestions for each character, maybe broken down by series. If someone could spare the time to do that (and I doubt that I could), maybe it could be made the start of a new pinned thread to replace this one -- otherwise it would pretty much get lost in the middle. (But with a link to the old thread so other suggestions would still be accessible, if anyone wanted to slog through 1550-odd posts.)
LOL. I actually was making a list awhile back and still have it. I just haven't updated since page 57 or 58 on here.
