Henry Cavill finishes Witcher 3, considers role as Geralt

Somebody get Netflix on the phone - Superman's Henry Cavill has expressed his desire to play Geralt in Netflix's upcoming TV adaptation of CD Projekt Red's The Witcher series.

"Absolutely. Yeah, that would be an unbelievable role", said Cavill in an interview with IGN regarding his interest in playing the protagonist of The Witcher series.

For those unfamiliar with the novels or video game series, The Witcher franchise follows Geralt of Rivia, a witcher (a genetically mutated human with magical abilities who kills monsters professionally), intent on slaying monsters, claiming bounties, and bedding as many women as possible. And when asked if he would be interested in playing its star man Geralt, Cavill responded with a lightning-fast "absolutely", before saying, "that would be an fantastic role".
