Netflix revealed the first look of Henry Cavill in The Witcher on Wednesday. The silver-haired Geralt of Rivia, based on Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski's Witcher series, came to life for the streaming giant.

The screen adaptation of the Harry Potter series gave us Jason Isaac's version of Lucius Malfoy. Twitterati claimed that Herny Cavill could easily be interchanged with Malfoy senior, without many even noticing.
