Do you like Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia?

The Witcher Netflix series will cast Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5180504/?ref_=nm_flmg_prd_1

"Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts."
"Will be based on the books, not the video games."

Not sure how to feel about this. I have only watched the man from UNCLE, and Henry Cavill played a charming and classy secret agent.

To me Cavill seems more like the friendly neighborhood handsome knight captain who serves the king than an itinerant albino mutant who spends days and nights killing disgusting insectoids in the city sewers for meager coins...

I didn't have much expectation for this series, but after reading the scripts here, they seem to get the characterization pretty on point

If Henry Cavill aced this audition, I am officially intrigued

On the other hand, he'd make a really good Vilgefortz though, look at these

If you read the books, Cavill has Vilgefortz's fuccboi look, and he could play the charming, classy, devious role quite well, and he definitely looks like the guy who could cripple Geralt permanently in a 1v1 duel

Since they cast Henry Cavill as rough boy Geralt, it is really really hard to cast pretty boy Vilgefortz
