Netflix has a holding page for their The Witcher series which says the show will be out in 2018. Really, so soon?
The witcher Geralt, a mutated monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.
But who is going to play the titular Witcher? Ask the internet who plays the Geralt of Rivia now and you get back Michał Żebrowski. That’s because he did! He played Geralt in the Polish film The Hexer. As for IMDB’s entry for the Netflix series, right now, you’ll get nothing.
Fans asking for Zach McGown
Zach McGown is certainly on an upward path. He was Captain Charles Vane in Black Sails, King Roan in The 100, the Russian submarine captain in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and recently completed roles in both The Scorpion King: Book of Souls and Death Race 4.
While some fans are putting Henry Cavill forward as the natural choice as the white-haired mutant, McGown’s fans are putting together some impressive fan art.
Check out this poster by voice actor Raff. Fortes. This fan art certainly seems to suggest McGowan would be a natural physical fit for the role. He’s that slender-muscular fit which The Witcher will demand with the angular face.
