Have you ever read a book and, halfway through, caught yourself thinking, “This character deserves so much better!?” It may be because they’ve been dealt an unfortunate hand, have lost a parent, or job, or simply can’t seem to get their life together.

If We Could Dream Cast “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”

As fans of Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill’s comic book The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen know, a tale about Victorian era characters banding together to fight evil is one of the most brilliant ideas ever.

Never to let a good dream cast pass us by, here's who we'd like to see fill the iconic roles this time around.
