    If you're bringing in Denzel I say forget the rest of the cast. Bring in Paul Rudd & Keanu Reeves and have it all meta with the "real" Hollywood immortals cutting each others heads off.

    My ideal of Denzel Washington as a baddie is he still more regular human than immortal but still filled with experience of a hard life because he has experienced racism and fought in the Vietnam war. He didn't become a immortal until dying in 2003 or something like that. He is successful at killing immortals though because he doesn't follow any honor code. He will just shoot them with a gun and when going dead he simply uses his sword to lop off their heads in that moment before coming back to life. Meaning our leads have to come up with a new strategy to kill him other than showing up with a sword expecting a fair fight.

    That was actually an episode of the show (soldier sniping other immortals and then cutting off their heads) & kinda in Endgame (immortals ignoring the rules and "cheating" for kills)

    It was? I still haven't gotten that far. I am watching the show for the first time and I'm in the middle of season 3.

    Considering past casting in the franchise, I'd guess Australian Aboriginal.

    Based on genes alone, Emmanuelle Chriqui would be the last immortal standing.

    Isn't there an actress who was cast as a teenager for like 30 years straight? I can't remember who it was.

    Edit:. To clarify, she was cast as a believable teenager

    Charisma Carpenter is almost 51. She could still pass for teenage Cordi.

    I stumble across this today.



    "Thing have changed so much in 20 years since the original series"

    WTH. Didn't CSI JUST end a couple of years ago?

    I think it started just over 20 years ago. Finale for the LV one was probably five or so years back? - Last I watched it though was probably 2010ish

    Off the top of my head, the finale would've been at least six years ago since Ted Danson has had six seasons of three different TV shows since then, 1 for CSI: Cyber, 4 for The Good Place and whatever his new show is.
