I seriously thought of D at least two shades darker: more like Denzel Washington, honestly.

But for the Bokor you need somebody darker than Idris Elba's (now-graying) beard, if possible. Realistically, Omar Epps is about as pale as I'd cast him. Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje looks like a better choice, despite not being quite so thin.

Like I said, in a perfect casting, D would be Yaphet Kotto.

Funny enough, in my head, Baracus was Geoffrey Holder, also from Live and Let Die.

I can see it. I can see both of 'em.

Which means your pen did its job of portraiture well.
