 Casting Couch

Ok, here's my (slightly Eurocentric) two pen'th:

Severian : Jeremy Irons (tall, lean, serious)
Master Palaemon : Sir John Gielgud (old, wise, lovable)
Baldanders : Gerard Depardieu (big, powerful, buried passions)
Little Severian : McCauly Caulkin (because I want to see him get
                       crisped by Typhon's ring) (in slow motion, ideally)
Agia : Sigourney Weaver (one scary adversary)
Dorcas : Helena Bonham Carter (lifetime's experience playing
             drippy girlies)
Jonas : Donald Sutherland (deadest eyes in the business)
Dr Talos : Richard E Grant (posturing popinjay - did "Withnail & I"
               make it across the Atlantic?)
Typhon's head : Alan Rickman (well, he's done every other
                       OTT villain...)
