Passionflix Asks Fans for Black Dagger Brotherhood Casting Suggestions
Who would you cast as Wrath and Beth in J.R. Ward’s Dark Lover, the first book in her Black Dagger Brotherhood series? Whether you’re a longtime fan or new to the series, you’ve probably pictured who you’d like to see in the roles, and now Passionflix CEO Tosca Musk wants to hear your ideas.
“Okay, Black Dagger Brotherhood fans. I’m listening,” Musk tells the audience in a recent Instagram post. “Who is your dream cast?”
Not only does Passionflx need to cast Beth Randall and the dark and broody vampire king, Wrath, but in order to bring the story to life they’ll also need to find actors to play the other members of the brotherhood, namely: Tohrment, Zsadist, Phury, Rhage and Vishous.
Naturally, fans were quick to chime in with their ideas. There were some calls for Jason Momoa, Henry Cavill, Hugh Jackman and Charlie Hunnam (and they’re all great choices!) along with current and past Passionflix actors like Giulio Berruti and Michael Roark.
Wrestler Roman Reigns and Travis Van Winkle also got a lot of attention.
Many fans noted that it will be hard to cast the Black Dagger Brotherhood because they’re such physically imposing characters, but the consensus was that Passionflix has always done a phenomenal job with casting so it’s important to trust the process.
If you’re new to Passionflix, you might be wondering how much of an impact your voice and your suggestions can have on casting. As it happens, the Passionflix team reads every single response and does their due diligence. While we can’t always have Alexander Skarsgaard as the answer to every casting question (trust me, we’ve tried) the fans have helped to shape casting decisions before. And knowing what you see as the perfect leading man or leading woman can help them on their quest to find the perfect actors for the new series.
So who do you see as Wrath and Beth? Who would you cast as the other members of the Brotherhood? Let us know in the comments!

Wrath: Try taking a closer look at THE UNDERTAKER, MARK CALLAWAY. As for Beth, no ideas yet. Roman Reigns as Tohrment, maybe John Cena as Rhage, maybe AJ Styles as Vishous (still out on who could be cast as Phury) and maybe Triple H as Zsadist. But pro wrestlers would definitely be a good place to start (Vin Diesel could probably be cast as one of the Brothers as well).
Vin diesel and John Cena to old, brothers are in their 30s
Kevin Nash as Wrath!
I absolutely agree with Jason M for Wrath! There is an amazing specimen name I.am.stacks on Instagram…. He would be an amazing Rhage, or Lassiter!! His personality fits💯👏🏻 Beth – the girlfriend in Transformers, who’s dad was a Mechanic!
Jason Momoa as Wrath, Kellan Lutz as Rhage 🙂…
I trust in Passionflix to fit the right person to the character but we need to stay true to the characters in book. The books bring you in from the beginning. A lot of good names are being thrown out but do they really fit the idea we all have in our heads as Wrath? Wrath is the king of all vampires. It’s going to be someone who is strong in body and mind. Who will not leave after the first story and plans to work through each book if they become screens plays as well. Jason M Would be great but I don’t really see him playing the roll for more than the first story . Jensen Ackles would be a great Rhage. Most females and males alike love his personality. Chris Hemsworth would be a great Tohrment. Scott Eastwood and Miles Teller would be a great additions as one of the brothers.
I have to say no to most of the suggestions…nothing personal. BUTTT Thomas Beaudoin, now he can pretty much play any of the brothers except Wrath. But I can totally see him as Tohr.
Roman Reighns for Wrath.
Phoebe Tonkin or Odette Annable For Beth
GIULIO BERRUTI ❤️🔥
HELLO, I say David Gandy for VISHOUS! And Wentworth Miller for ZADIST. They are beautiful but in a sinister way. David Gandy will ALWAYS be V for me !! The others…big name or not has to play the part especially physically, and stick to the stories. I have been waiting for this for a long time.
I hope no matter what happens they are all manly and not baby faced!! I think they can be beautiful men but a little rough looking at the same time.
Im just so excited and grateful for JR and Passionflix to be doing this, I trust they will cast expertly!
