Malik-Tor, In Pictures...

Ok, now I have a picture in my head of Malik, he is much older than Syndra-Kai, but he can't be so old it's weird, you know?
He has that tall, dark and handsome thing going for him, and he has to be old enough to look dangerous, but he has the soul of a poet, and that has to come through his face as well.
I had a tough time trying to find the perfect blend in one person, but here are a few images to give you the idea...
I started out with an idea of Oded Fehr, you know him from The Mummy (the guy with the tattoos on his cheeks) and Resident Evil.

If only he were 20 years younger...
Then I thought about Billy Zane...


Now he is just yummy, but honestly, sorry Billy, but your acting stinks. He is just way over the top... And he's almost TOO clean-cut perfect, if you know what I mean... I need darker... Again, he's too old as well... (Malik-Tor is only 25 after all)
Ok, did some more image searching, here's a guy you'll be seeing soon, he is playing the young Captain Kirk in the latest Star Trek movie, his name is Chris Pine...

Hmmm...where else could I go for yummy actors that haven't necessarily hit mainstream yet? I know... SOAP OPERAS!!
Here's a couple that could fit the bill...
First up, we have Eyal Podell, of the Young and the Restless... wow...

Next, we have Agim Kaba, of As The World Turns...

And last but certainly not least, if I had to pick one right now that I think could do the job right, it would be Tyler Christopher, who plays Nikolas on General Hospital...

Malik-Tor has golden eyes, so contacts are in order as well, but since I cast Vanessa Hudgens as Syndra-Kai, I think these two would make a really cute couple... What do you think?

I agonized over this choice, because I didn't have a complete picture in my head until I saw this pic of Tyler Christopher and was just... yessssss.... :)
I did have fun looking for cute guys online, I can only wonder what my hubby would have to say if he were to look at the browsing history, lol! Glad you approve... What do you think of Syndra?
