WYLAN VAN ECK
I’m a big supporter of letting gay actors play gay characters, and Brandon fits the bill. But not only that, he’s been convincing as the vile and then tortured Justin in 13 Reasons Why, so I’m betting he could play the shy merchant’s son with a talent for blowing things up fairly well.
Alex impressed the hell out of me in Netflix’s The End of the F***ing World. He can act through the odd, the fantastical, and the macabre and give Wylan the sarcastic punch we see in the books. Plus, he’s got the type of build that I imagine for Wylan.
The dude has awesome natural curly hair, he played a wonderful gay character in Netflix’s Alex Strangelove, and then played another dramatic character in Altered Carbon. He’s a great actor and I think he would definitely have fun with this role.
