  1. I always pictured Hermes with gray hair, but I still like Nathan Fillion :P

    Oooh. I haven't read The Selection yet, but I approve of the Chronicles of Narnia dude(yes, I sadly already forgot his name.)

  3. OHMYGOD.
    Nathan Fillion + Sea of Monster (One of my favourite Percy Jackson books.) = AWESOME.
    This is better then what I found out Ethan Peck was going to be the Prince Maxon in The Select.
    Excuse me while I nerd-drool a little in the corner.

    Btw, I caught that flash of Darth Vader when you said "Dark side", clever.
