Re: Dune: The TV series

He certainly has the gravitas, but perhaps he looks a little young for the part. IIRC Shaddam is said to look no older than 30-ish despite being in his 70's thanks to the spice melange.

Perhaps for simplicity (and perhaps credibility) sake that detail can be altered somewhat. I believe the Lynch movie got around casting an older actor by saying the character is actually 200 years old.
