I only regret that I have but one blog to post for this mini-series.

History’s sprawling, six-hour mini-series about the Revolutionary War, Sons of Liberty, has culled actors from all over the TV landscape to fill out the show’s historic roles. You can read the whole announced cast list here, but there are some definite notables. Hank from Breaking Bad is Benjamin Franklin? Awesome. That Cajun serial-killer guy from season one of True Blood is Paul Revere? Count me in.

But as far as any further casting decisions go, I’m here to tell History they can just stop. I’ve got this. Here are my picks to round out the famous faces involved in the American Revolution, and who History needs to play them.
