Who I would cast for Black Jewels tv-series

If Anne Bishop's Black Jewels series got adapted to a TV-series, these are the actors I would cast. This is my opinion!
I have no idea who I would cast for Leland, Robert Benedict, Wilhelmina, Geoffrey or Draca, so ideas would be good and welcome. If I forgot someone, which I'm sure I did, please tell me.
