your Caves of Myrddin cast

Regular commenter Anon of Ibid, inquiring about Sunday's NPC listing, asks, "Do these characters have actors assigned to them as well?"

They do now.

William Atherton/Walter Peck from Ghostbusters is Father Sithny, Vicar of Endeltstow.  Yes, it's true; this man has no dick.

Rhea Perlman/Carla Tortelli from Cheers is Ewella the Alewife.  She'll readily supply you with as much barley-based poison as you can drink.  Just don't get on her bad side.

Cassandra Gaviola/The Witch from Conan the Barbarian is Dremelza, Witch of Camelton.  She's alluring but also hella dangerous.  And pretty much the only game in town for arcane services.

Harry Morgan/Colonel Sherman T. Potter from MASH is Father Wendron, Abbot of St. Emmet.  He knows what you and Hawkeye get up to when you're not on duty but he doesn't care as long as you're fighting the good fight.  Keep the bishop out of the loop and you're aces in his book.

Julian Glover/General Veers from Empire Strikes Back is William of Crevan, Castellan Bottreaux.  Something about General Veers always struck me, like he was a reasonable man who happened to be on the wrong side of the conflict.  The Imperial Admirals in Empire and Jedi seem to be douchebags of one sort or another, but Veers doesn't give me that same vibe.  Like if you beat him at chess he wouldn't pitch a fit or hold it against you.  I dunno.

Zero Mostel/Max Bialystock from The Producers is Merwik the Merchant.  Clearly not trustworthy and more than a little berserk at times, but lovable nonetheless.
