"The way your dad looked at it, Arrakis was your birthright. He'd be damned if any Harkonnens gonna put their greasy fat hands on his boy's birthright, so he hid it, in the one place he knew he could hide something: his ass."
These are my Sardaukar. I put googly eyes on them.
I can say that this is the first casting choice I actually REALLY dislike. DISLIKE!
Walken is, firstly, too old for Shaddam IV. His life has been greatly extended by his spice use, but looks to be ranging from his late 40s to mid/late 50s. But a very healthy, still very much in fighting shape type of look.
Secondly, Walken only really plays Walken. I really have a hard time hearing his voice and seeing his mannerisms matching up with the Emperor's, which should be regal AF...without the audience just going "IT'S WALKEN!"
My casting choices would've been along the lines of: Daniel Craig, Viggo Mortensen, Russell Crowe, Jon Hamm
