D&D Movie/TV Polygon: Who is Hugh Grant playing in the D&D movie, and is it secretly Dagult Neverember?

There will never be a time when I don't chuckle and struggle to say "Mount Hotenow" with a straight face.

The Alagondar line who held the crown for most of the city's modern history disappeared in 1451 when the city was destroyed by Mageara the Hot-Pocket Titan.

Neverember came under the pretense to pacify and rebuild the city who was the shadow of itself in 1467.

The city in the trailer does not look like a ravaged city.

So it would seem he's a new lord from the most up-to-date lore, or he's a lord from way before the Alagondar, somewhen around the Orcgate and the whole magic war between Thay and Neverwinter.

In defense of these names, it's not like we don't have worse names for places in the real world. Case in point, "Boner Knob Mountain."
Yeah, that was part of how I leaned into things. The major mountain that the starting barony was based around was "Green Mountain." I just said the locals -- who included a lot of dwarves, for the record -- were a literal bunch.

"That green mountain is Green Mountain. That river with mossy banks is the Moss River. That village by the waterfall that used to be a goblin settlement is Goblin Falls. That range of volcanic mountains that periodically spew hot ash are the Hotash Mountains."

Since it comes up on a google search for cast members, Forge Fitzwilliam. He’s a fellow con man that chris pines character meets in the prequel novel before the movie time frame is set in.

Oh right. I thought maybe the novel explained how he took over from Dagult but I guess not? I read elsewhere that Dagult isn't mentioned in the book, but I see that he has an actor listed for the movie, so maybe we'll get an explanation in the movie.

FR wiki have an explanation at Dagult's page. I didn't check their source, but it makes sense.
