It's what other sites call a "Face Claim", a listing of actors who play various characters so we don't have four Angelina Jolies running around our Firefly sims... like one site I could name (that actually has one of these!).

Re: Actors Index

2nd Lieutenant Mila "Popcorn" Waczinski of "From the Ashes" is Hayley Williams, the singer of Paramore band.

Noriko Yukimura of "Radioactive" is Naoko Yamazaki, an actual Japanese astronaut.

My other characters, Cameron and the Red Comet, are based on drawings and not on real people.

The NPCs of PaRTS (the Pacific Rim sim) will be all actors, but they are not yet formalized.

Re: Actors Index

Great stuff. Small request please - if the actor is not in a currently broadcasting American television show or a Hollywood actor of some note, it's a good idea to let people (well, me) know where they're from.

Re: Actors Index

Can same actor/actress be in two different 'universes'?

Re: Actors Index

I'd say yes, as long as the same images aren't used (it would cause confusion). For instance, I could easily see someone using Hugh Jackman in his various roles (Wolverine, Les Mis, etc), when I am also using him in the D'ni sim, simply because the look can be significantly different between characters.

Re: Actors Index

Personally, I am not in favour of using major roles / well-known actors for images, as I find it can be immersion breaking. I'd rather use a background extra or some unknown, or artwork. Koji Kikkawa, for example, I felt was unknown enough to be used, given the small size of his role in the series as a whole, and the fact that most of the time he is there he is disguised by the rider-suit anyway.

Re: Actors Index

Major actors DO thousands of completely different roles...

Re: Actors Index

We don't have any hard rules about not having the same actor. For the sake of our collective sanities, though, probably best to avoid anyone who actually played a character in that universe (unless it's as that character), and to keep from two people using the same actor in a given setting.

Seems extremely reasonable. Just common sense.

Precisely.

Re: Actors Index

Kelvorn Sun-Campbell (Cydonia) - Ian McShane (Deadwood)
Dan Doherty (Cydonia) - W. Earl Brown (Deadwood)
Johnny Bridgers (Cydonia) - Sean Bridgers (Deadwood)
Christophe Bellamy (Cydonia) - Jean Reno
Joshua Temple (Jericho) - Tahmo Penikett (Battlestar Gallactica, The Dollhouse)
Worthy Summers (Stargate) - Tom Hollander

That's a start on mine. There are some actors I use for prominent NPCs where I GM, for example Stargate, but I'll get to them later.

This thread (and the page on the wiki) is a really good idea, by the way.

Re: Actors Index

I have a bunch more that I need to compile now, especially for Radioactive. This also reminds me we need a way to flag threads for revisiting. I'd love to have a reminder sent to me periodically (at a length of my choosing, such as 2 weeks) to revisit this thread rather than having to manage that elsewhere (like keeping the window open and potentially losing it on a shutdown).

Re: Actors Index

Agreed! And thread moderators could be better at closing completed threads or pro-actively managing open ones towards resolution too! Leaving threads open when they've reached resolution leads to confusion, sure as anger leads to hate and hate leads to sufferingggg.

You know, you could put a reminder on your online calendar.

Thanks for the updates - do you have Wiki access, Ash?
