It would be great if a Jamaican Actor could play the part. An unknown would be awesome as everyone who read the book probably has an idea in their head about what he looks like. A known actor might spoil that image while an unknown might be acceptable to all. A Jamaican accent would really lend an air of authenticity.

I actually like the idea of an aging Sidney Poitier in the role.

Clint Eastwood is great at playing a cranky old man. I realize that he is a white man, but his demeanor would be perfect.

Although he is young for the role, Sterling K. Brown. Someone suggested Morgan Freeman. He would be a good choice too.

I thought of Sidney Poitier, too, but I agree with all the casting choices of other readers. This might help Will Smith’s image at the moment and he is a very talented actor.

Sidney Poitier and Harry Belafonte were the images that prevailed in my mind as I read.

Morgan Freeman was my first thought as well.
