Casting movies based on real events can be a nightmare. There's instant scrutiny over how similar the actors look to the people they're portraying. When it comes to movies taking place far in the past, it's easier to get away with casting because it's unclear how many of those people actually looked – though strides are being made in that area through 3D CGI and forensic anthropology. Netflix's film Outlaw King tells the true story of Robert the Bruce, the real "Braveheart," being forced into exile and leading an army of Scottish outlaws in rebellion. But how did Chris Pine and the rest of the cast compare to their counterparts?
