Casting Couch

I'm starting off with a reminder to enter the give away for all FOUR paperbacks in the My Blood Approves series. If you haven't yet, enter: here.

Now I'm moving onto important matters. Who would I cast in a movie adaptation of My Blood Approves series? Most of these people aren't the people I necessarily envisioned why writing this, but they are the actors I think embody the characters quite well.

Natalie Dreyfuss as Alice Bonham


Natalie used to be on the Lifetime series Rita Rocks, and it was still one when I started writing the first book. She was actually who I always envisioned as Alice. 

Ezra Miller as Milo Bonham
 

The eye color is wrong, but Ezra Miller works for me. Plus, I think he could handle the transformation from geek to chic pretty well. 
 

Emma Watson as Jane Kress 



I'll be honest with you and say I never would've picked Emma Watson for this. Her real life personality seems completely contrary to Jane's. But when I saw her pic the other day with her new short hair, I said "That's Jane!" That's exactly how I pictured her.

Charlie Hunnam as Ezra Townsend




If you're only familiar with Charlie from Sons of Anarchy, he seems like a weird choice. But watch Abandon or Nicholas Nickelby. That's how I picture Ezra. 

Kate Winslet as Mae Townsend



She's British and warm and pretty perfect. 

Emile Hirsch as Peter Townsend



I got the film Speed Racer for Christmas a few years ago, and I watched when I was drafting My Blood Approves. I'd already developed the character of Peter and had a vision in mind, but Emile's eyes (digitally enhanced, I'm sure) in Speed Racer, those were Peter's eyes. Totally. Plus, Emile is ridiculously foxy. Check out Into the Wild for proof. 

? as Jack Townsend

I honestly can't cast him. If you have any ideas, throw them out.

  1. While I was reading, I couldn't imagine Jack, even when I tried to put someone there, it would just disappear. I just kept trying to think of the foxiest guy I could and I couldn't. Then I did, but you would NOT agree and I know that. So, still no clue.

  2. When I started reading it Matt Lanter popped into my head as Jack. He plays a pretty serious character on 90210 (Liam) but there are some episodes where he lightens up and has fun and has a beautiful smile. I just imagine him as the sort of guy that would wear a pink T-shirt and the style of dress that Jack has.
    Oddly enough I saw the other day that he is now playing the Edward character in Vampires Suck.

  4. I love Paul Wesley. All tho I have never watched Vampire Diaries. He has always been what I envisioned for a vampire in my book.

  7. After much deliberation, I'm happy that I don't actually have to cast this thing, because I never could.

    I've had a couple people that I like, but they'd be way too old or just not right. So... I'm flummoxed.

  10. Okay, now I know his hair is a bit dark but I think of Matt Bomer - from White Collar. In the book Jack is 24, but acts younger. He doesn't look like a teenager and could pull it off, although he might be too old. He reminds me a bit of Peter but has the right smile and eyes. He's very cute either way :)

    Here's a photo:

  11. I actually could have seen Charlie Hunnam as Jack when I saw that picture you posted. Go figure.

    Throughout the book though, I actually imagined Jack as Hayden Christensen. :) :) :)

    I think I also imagined Peter as older, even though I think I remember reading that he was supposed to be 19-looking. If only there were a younger version of Christian Kane out there.

  12. WOW!! I've had a very hard time picturing ANYONE as Jack, but Yes! I can see Hayden Christensen there. Hmmm. never would have thought that.

  13. He is kinda hard picturing, like som kind of god.. :p But I think Ed Speleers could make a good jack. He looks young and his smile is really cute :)

  14. What about Garrett Hedlund? That's pretty much how I envisioned him. :)

  15. I reckon Hunter Parrish would be great as Jack Townsend. He has blonde messed up hair, blue eyes and unbelievably hot! Is there gonna be a film or T.V series adaption of My Blood Approves? I really hope there is since I am hooked on the books!! I'm so looking forward to the 5th book! Thanks, Daisy:-)

  16. How about Steven McQueen from vampire diaries?

  17. I could totally see Matthew Bomer as Jack (blond obviously) I could see a younger Jared Ackles or Alex Pettyfer as Jack. Maybe Graham Wardle for Peter or Tom Welling (<3) Allthough i couldnt really find a description for Alice, seeing the actress above, it totally fits!

    ReplyDelete
  18. well yeah Alex Pettyfer suits it well ...
