Dresden Files Fantasy Casting: Harry Dresden
If there’s a Dresden Files film or TV series, who would be a good actor to play Harry Dresden’s role?
Harry Dresden, the protagonist of Jim Butcher’s best-selling urban fantasy series the Dresden Files, is one of the coolest, funniest, and most developed character in the genre, and seeing him come to life in a film or a decent TV series would be awesome (And no, the one they had in the Scyfy channel doesn’t count). Who would be a perfect actor fit for the hero’s role?
And no, please not Nicholas Cage.

We all know that Disney’s film directed by Jon Turteltaub The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is a second-rate copy of the Dresden Files. With the fedora hat and the leather outfit, Balthazar Blake’s image looks like it was stolen from Christian McGrath’s illustrations of Harry Dresden. So let’s take Nicholas Cage out of list of our potential actors who would play Dresden’s role.
Here are some good choices instead:
Paul Blackthorne – I actually think he played the role well in the Dresden Files series in Scyfy, but I just thought the production of it was just terrible.
