    Hipolito Rodriguez:

    Hey, hey, no joke, but uh... someone who looks like Danny Trejo for Hipolito Rodriguez! For both when he was in his younger years during the Great War and in his older years as a guard for the Second Great War.

    Yup. Specifically I just picture Clarence Potter as Schroeder in his younger years, during the Great War. Anytime after then he starts looking waaaay different XD

    Who Would Look Like This Character?:

    So here's something. What character from the TL-191 Great War series would look like Lew Ayres' Paul Baumer from All Quiet on the Western Front? Or what character do you feel this one reminds you of the most?

    Well, he is german, and Germany is the Alt-US in 191, so I actually think this could be that californian dude....

    Chester Martin?

    Oh yeah! Chester Martin! The guy who fought on the Roanoke Front! Or this story's version of Verdun I guess. Yeah I think he was just a teenager or a young adult at the time of the war. Perhaps this could be him in his younger years on the Roanoke Front.

    Who Would Look Like This Character?:

    So, who do think would be this character here? What's the impression you get?

    I actually looked at Tom Sizemore and thought that this might be a good look for Michael Pound, Irving Morrell's tank gunner. However, I will admit Tom Sizemore here might be too young to be a stand in for Pound. I believe Pound would actually be around the same age as Morrell.

    Nice. Although, I imagined Hipolito Rodriguez to look less carved up with age.

    Within the context of TL-191, I just see a Confederate soldier.

    Mr Sizemore would actually be an excellent casting choice for Chester Martin - he has the right Blue Collar Everyman quality.

    Oh yeah! Yeah, he could be like the older version of Chester Martin in the Second Great War. Has a very good Blue Collar look.

    The fact that Morrel is now a cosplaying as a Russian from OTL disturbs me more than it should for some reason.
