A Blog About Nothing is hosting this mini challenge asking us to
name of a book or series that you would love to see get made into a movie or a TV show and your cast choices for the main characters.I love Lesley Livingston's characters from Wondrous Strange and Darklight think it the books would make a great movie. Here are my choices for the main characters.
Kate Marie would play seventeen-year-old Kelly. Kelly is Irish and a red-head and Kate qualifies. I also think Kate while still innocent looking has a certain independence and self-confidence that Kelly also had.
For the role of Sonny who is also Irish, strong and confident, I think Ian Somerhalder will fit quite well. He is very hot and when Kelly first meets him in the park she has a hard time forgetting him. I know if I met Ian anywhere the memory would be etched in my brain forever.
For the role of Kelly's father Auberon, King of the Faeries, I think Hugh Jackman is perfect. Auberon is strong and handsome with a dark side and Hugh is all of this an more.
For Kelly's mom, Queen Mabh, I would cast Nicole Kidman. Kidman is beautiful as a red-head and has the ability to look regal, as well as hard and evil. Queen Mabh is described as beautiful, but also has a very dark-side to her, and Mabh and Kelly have to have a resemblance, which I think Kate and Nicole have.
For the role of Bob (Puck), I would cast Jamie Bell. I mean look at that face, if it doesn't scream mischievous prankster I don't know who does.
One other role I would cast is a member of the Janus Guard. Jason Stratham would play Maddocks, Sonny's friend. I chose him beacause I love to watch this man fight, but he also has a code of conduct that matches Maddocks.
What do you think should I give up teaching and apply as a casting director in Hollywood?
