Title: The Casting Thread...
Post by: CheeseBK on July 20, 2009, 05:48:08 am
So, we already had a thread like this on the old forum, but as you know, it got lost...

but, no worries, we can talk about it again ;) twice the fun ;)

I still remember that the following actors got mentioned for CURRAN:
matthew mcconaughey, daniel craig, casper van dien, paul walker and others...

for KATE we discussed:
cote de pablo, jessica biel, alexa davalos and many others...

Please discuss possible actors for kate, curran, derek, jim, julie and all the others here....

I remember Reese Witherspoon (or however that's spelled) was mentioned for Andrea.
This friday I saw 'Whitout a Trace', and thought Poppy Montgomery would make a good Andrea, too.

Cheese why do you insist in leaving out Hugh Jackman for Curran? :D

Post by: white_unicorn on July 21, 2009, 05:13:37 am
my cent of thought...

Gerard Buttler or  Ryan Reynolds....

Also there was a model on Ilona's  blog that could enter for a casting....

what do you think?
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: Midangel on July 21, 2009, 10:11:51 am
I still picture Jason Lewis in my mind as Curran. *sigh* No human male should be able to look that good.  :D

And Gerard Buttler. *fans face*  ;)

I wonder what Hugh Jackman would look like as a blond...He did Wolverine, seems like he might could do Curran.

Post by: 3girlmom on July 21, 2009, 05:31:46 pm
Just a thought for Curran...don't know if he can act. But is sure purrty to look at! Gabriel Aubry! :o
As for Raphael, I think Ilona hit the nail on the head with this one!! Erick Elias! She has a site in her live journal where he can be seen. He is quite yummy looking.

For Kate.....Mostly because she is striking looking I'm thinking Angelina Jolie. And there is also Natalya Simonova.

As for Andrea, for whatever reason, I ALWAYS saw Elizabeth Banks as her.  I don't know, was there ever a physical description of Andrea other than she had a face that made you want to spill your life story to?

I see Evangeline Lilly as a good option for Kate. :) And Gerard Butler as Curran...Gerard Butler... *swoon*
Jensen Ackles would be perfect as Derek, though I'm not sure the hair is right. :-[

However, I wuz thinking (yeah, it happens to me too at times, those "headaches with pictures", as Fry called them) that I could look for someone Curran-esque that isn't really an actor (since it's just us having some fun). :) And this got me thinking to rugby players, since they've got the muscle part of Curran right. ;) And I remembered Mark Cueto...

(http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm224/goodmazoku/_44184641_cueto2.jpg)
Not the best pic of him, but he's really good-looking, trust me. ;)

they never aired it in austria either. at least not to a reasonable time.... there's only one season and a movie (serenity). I think you might actually enjoy it maz, it might be something you'd enjoy. hey, do you have the same region code on dvds as we do? *wonders*

I'll second that vote!!! He would work quite well. :D

I agree Evangeline Lilly would work as Kate. I always saw kate as someone who if dressed up would be beautiful but chose not too (but apparently fighting is too hard in a dress :D)
But Kate wouldn't be Kate if she dressed up

I also pictured Niki Reed as Kate:

I second Mark Cueto, if'n we can't get ahold of Christian Bale. And if we can't get ahold if either, then Stephen Dorff.

I think Derek is prettier, with sharper features, and boy-band hair (when it's not clipped short).

Hi,

I am new at this forum.
When I read the books I always had Kate Beckinsale in mind as Kate, not only because it is the same first name, but because she really rocks at the Underworld Movies and proofed she can be a real hard-ass fighter.

I cannot help, but I also always had Matthew McConaughey in mind as Curran or another suggestion is Josh Lucas - although both are a little older than Curran.

For Derek, I thought about someone who is not really an actor but a famous European soccer player: Christiano Ronaldo http://www.freewebs.com/cristiano-ronaldo-pictures/cristiano-ronaldo-photo.jpg

if you have time, maybe you want  to check out the introduction thread and the how international are we thread....

Kate Beckinsale might be able to pull the role of (she really CAN kick ass, both in Van Helsing and Underworld) but I think I don't really see her as kate daniels.... but great suggestion.

and now, josh lucas. totally forgot about him... I remember that I suggested him at the old  forum.... now he's real yummy and if he was a little bit bulkier he'd be a grea curran ;)

Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: Sachiko on August 14, 2009, 12:52:09 pm
I hate to be Miss Contrary here but I think Kate Beckinsale was great in the Underworld movies precisely because the role played against her "type" or figure.

She's so little and delicate and pretty.

I see Kate as being taller, with an athletic build, and stronger features. So, definately pretty, especially in the strong healthy filly-with-some-spirit sense, but not like Kate. Kate is more self-contained and bitty.

Jessica Biel is closer to my personal little corner-of-my-world vision of Kate Daniels. She might be able to pull it off. But it's still not quite nailin' it.

And....continuing the Miss Contrary theme (sorry, I do want to make friends!) I always saw Doc Doolittle as James Earl Jones.
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: electricpeppers on August 14, 2009, 01:39:45 pm
Kate Beckinsale is a good one. Although she's probably too beautiful, and maybe too skinny.

I find it hard to imagine any known actor playing these characters. But Kate in my mind resembles (a little) Angelina Jolie in the Tomb Raider films -- in a very blurry water-coloury type way. In that it's the long dark brown plait, lightly tanned skin, the dark brown eyes and tall build. Her face isn't like Angelina's though. Angelina is also too perfect looking for Kate IMO.
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: xxVj7xx on August 14, 2009, 03:27:45 pm
I think Jennifer Garner for  Kate, cause she looks tough enough and she's tall, lean and muscular and she also has the almond shape eyes and the dark brown hair. She's pretty but not too pretty.   http://bit.ly/L9IQd http://bit.ly/2xVOZb Whenever kate mentions her braid I always picture it just like Angelina's in tomb raider. For Curran, I second the Rugby player suggested by Good Mazoku : Mark Cueto, Gerad Butler would be my second choice. I really am obsessed with this series...... It's official, I'm a kateaholic
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: xxVj7xx on August 14, 2009, 06:01:21 pm

Yeah, more Jennifer Garner!

And we'll all just agree not to mention Elektra.

Mention what? Sorry, the line's disturbed. ;)

Jennifer Garner: hmm, I like her, but I can't see her as Kate, somehow. She just doesn't make that "click" in my head. I like Kate Beckinsale too, but maybe she is a little bit too skinny as Kate.

I also thought a little and Milla Jovovich (http://www.traffyk.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2007/07/re-milla-jovovich.jpg) came to mind as possible Kate. :) She can kick some serious ass. ;)

I did think of Jen Garner as well, but those dimples...just too darn adorable for Kate. LOL!  And...though I don't see Gerard Butler as Curran, I think he would make an excellent Bran.  Ahhh...so tempting.

Siaman has a plain guy form and then was only an old rich guy as part owner of the games - so need to pick out TWO more.   Go for it, I've exhausted myself finding the right Dolly!!   ;D ;D ;D ;D

Post by: Sachiko on August 16, 2009, 08:39:19 pm
If the Kate Daniels books turned into a TV show then the Saiman character could be like a slot filled by various guest stars or returning guest stars.

Like, have the old guy persona played by Richard Matheson, and then Hot Young Thing person played by, I don't know, Pamela Anderson Lee, etc.

Yep! I just put the other one in there to show off the shoulder muscles!

Because whoever Curran really is, he has to look big enough to bench 700! Judging by Lewis's muscles, I'd say he can maybe pass 300.

Definetely, same with the Jason pic on the last page- but I think he needs to have a little bit longer hair then in the first pic. ;D

but I think curran wears his hair 'too short to grab in a fight'. at least before the flare :D  so the look might actually be pretty close to the truth.

I was browsing imdb and I stumbled upon Scott Speedman (not that I didn't know him, I've seen Underworld a gazillion times, he just hadn't occurred to me before), who might also be a good match for Curran. :)

Oh yes! Saw him in Underworld.
He's perfect and his body is not bad either as far as I can remember.

Found my perfect Derek:

just without that weird moustache...
I know Orlando Bloom might be too skinny but hey the girl in me just has to sigh every time I see him...and those beautiful eyes...hmmm...O.K have to stop drooling... ;D
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: Sachiko on August 17, 2009, 02:33:53 pm
Yeah, but that's what makes it so powerful. Orlando Bloom is so PRETTY and has those delicate features, and to see them flattened and broken and roughed up, we get a taste of Kate's mourning for him and her wrath towards those who ruined his looks.

Not that Kate's all about the looks, but we humans are visual types, and seeing someone very pretty become very scarred has a gut-impact. It's even worse when you see half of their face, and see what they could have looked like, if that Terrible Tragedy hadn't happened.

Wait, wasn't there a character like that in LKH? Jean-Claude's buddy or something? Anyway. Very effective. AND has the impact of knowing that people really really do get hurt in Kate's world, and makes the books much more powerful, because we have to take threats seriously, and injuries aren't something that people laugh off and pretty back up from by the next book.

(I just glanced over my hastily written post and, oh, my grammar.....forgive me)

I also thought of a German actress Nora Tschirner http://www.phatbastard.de/wp-content/myfotos/noratschirner2/24291_Nora_Tschirner_h6_122_249lo.jpg
She is not really an action-actress, but the German bookcover of Magic Bites/Burns kind of remind me of her...

And as Curran my new suggestion: http://www.thehollywoodgossip.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/10/eric-dane-1.jpg ??

Unless someone wants to make Mahon black and use Ving Rhames or something.

But I saw him as a black bearded, maybe balding big guy, rumbly voice, huge hairy arms, etc.

Speaking of, do shifters go bald? How does male pattern baldness affect them?

I've read a lot of urb-fic where shifters/weres are all really schmexy hotties with great metabolisms and superhuman strength and whatnot.

You'd think people would be breaking down shifters' doors not to rout them out but to beg them to "infect" them. Esp. if it cures baldness, too.
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: Alecia on August 28, 2009, 07:17:10 pm
maybe if you were already balding it wouldn't cure, but balding after infection? Can't see it.
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: Sachiko on August 28, 2009, 07:21:04 pm
okay, so, get infected in late teens/early twenties? Before anything heads south, but after you've passed puberty?
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: Alecia on August 28, 2009, 07:24:53 pm
Maybe, shifters are prob pretty picky about who they turn. Attractiveness, intelligence, loyalty would be some of MY requirements before I let someone be changed.

So I wonder if you shave will your animal form have no hair on its back legs? Some most books never talk about it but I always kinda wondered and if you shaved then changed would the hair on your legs grow back instantly? *just wondering*

Liked both Mahon and Hugh choices but i'm not so sure about Derek!!!

Yeah, I keep wondering that too. How does the hair/fur thing work? How do the teeth change? Do all the human teeth fall out and you grow new ones? Or do the teeth re-form? How deep does the renewal go--can shifters maintain tattoos or does the Lyc-V dissolve the ink?
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: Alecia on August 29, 2009, 09:39:26 pm

Hair/Fur is TMI.

Me personally, I don't think they would be able to maintain tats.

What I want to know is if you have filled cavities will the teeth reform? ;D

I found some disguises that Grendel can use once he grows out his hair: 

He could be a peacock:

He could go as a chicken:

Or he could become a camel - who would notice that??:

I'm sure he could be very incognito as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle:

It took me a few minutes t figure out it was ON THE SIDE of the dog. I thought the dog was standing beside a stuffy. AND if that woman put all that effort into grooming her dog, couldn't she have a least brushed her OWN hair before showing the dog?

edited OOPS that was  the wrong link. Sorry Dragon poodle lady, your hairs looks fine. How horsie lady......maybe it's just the horse thing? I mean, lots of times i don't brush my hair till mid day, course, it's last my butt and usually tied up but still...

The worst part is when our hair gets so bad that the horses mistake it for hay and start chewing on it and leaving big green goobers all over.

It hasn't happened to me, but it has to my SIL.

Me, the green goobers the horses left in my hair didn't come from their mouth. I hate picking hooves. :P

When I see Mila Kunis I think "Jackie" from That 70s Show, but she looks different all made up in that photo.  And her features are different enough from the standard Aryan beauty that she might match Kate's "exotic features" a little better.  She's not perfect, but she outstrips all the others.  I think she'd be a very workable Kate.

Well, if they can give Orlando Bloom silky platinum locks, they can darken Max's hair a bit. It'll prolly darken on its own as he gets older.

I was watching Kit Kittredge: An Americal Girl! with my kids--yeah, I know, but I'd lost our Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children--and saw him in it and I thought, "That is soooooo Derek!"

LOL 3girlmom - a frying pan ;D ;D! I think that hits the mark! First when I saw him as cast for Edward I only thought- "OMG how ugly" -though I have to admit now, that I really liked him as Edward, at the end he did quite a good job in Twilight and had that appealing mystic aura.
But he is definetily not our "boywonder" Derek! Jesse Metcalfe is already a very good choice, though he is not such a fearnought that I imagine as Derek...

Never saw a movie or something else with that actor but he came up when I googled "Teenie Star"  :D

WHAAAAT???  Are you all doing a motion picture?  I totally want to be in it if you are, you should have auditions!  I'm a tiny girl, so I would probably only be able to be one of those background people, I don't think I match any of the main characters.  Unless you have a caucasian woman about 5'2", 102 lbs, long brown wavy hair (can be straight) and bright green eyes?  But since I read your books, I know for a fact I don't meet any of the requirements for Kate's characters.  I bet I could pass for a werecat.  My friend Lorelei would fit Andrea's description perfectly.  And that guy off of "Crossing Jordan" um,, Nigel I think his name is in the show strongly reminds me of Raphael.

I don't like daniel craig. he purses his lips like a girl and it drives me mad. plus I don't see him acting the way curran acts....it's kinda like casting tom cruise. you know it's tom cruise, you know it's tom cruise ACTING like he's tom cruise playing a role, but you just can't believe it. cus it's still just tom cruise. I want an actor that can play curran. period. someone who's all about the role. not the fame, not the reviews, not the money (though that is a primary goal for most actors). And I want someone who's read the fraquin book to know how to act like curran.  movies based off books irritate the snot out of me. most often times they aren't accurate and there's "creative licensing" that just well, homicidal thoughts happen. Big named stars for this movie would be in my opinon a bad bad idear.

As for the next person who suggests angelina jolie.....really.....you think she'd actually fit the part? really.....

I have to agree with that one. He is a little too odd looking to be uber sexy Raphael.  ;D
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: Jesalli on October 14, 2009, 04:34:30 pm
He's just what I pictured from the description.  He is not supposed to be the typical "sexy" but he gives off an aura of "experience" to me.  I don't picture Raphael being hot.  Just mysterious looking and intelligent looking, and smooth like silk.  That's not Ilona's words, but it's how I pictured him.
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: CheeseBK on October 14, 2009, 04:41:39 pm
jesalli, we all picture the characters a little differently in our minds. that's the beauty of books.... you still get to paint the details yourself in your own head. and if YOUR raphael looks like steve valentine, well, that's fine ;)

I just have this one line in my head, that is used in one of the books to describe raphael (might be paraphrased)

when you  looked at raphael, you thought about sex.

valentine does not quite stir up that kind of reaction in me, but I still think he is an awesome actor and plays the quirky doc in crossing jordan brilliantly!!!
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: SylviaSybil on October 14, 2009, 06:08:59 pm
Raphael's actor would haveto be a fantastic actor, to be able to project SEX from the character through your tv screen.  His looks would be much less important than the other actors.

Keanu is delicious IMO, until he opens his mouth... Just stand there and look pretty.  DrOOl
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: Steinchen on October 15, 2009, 12:10:53 pm
Well at least in the movie "Point Break" Keanu is synchronized/dubbed in German by my absolute favorite male dubbing artist, I only call him "The Voice" wOrshiP, Nicolas Böll!
Everytime I hear that voice my face looks like this  DrOOl and bf runs screaming out of the room because he cannot stand the dreamy look my face gets. ;D ;D

Seriously, there were times when we were kind of "obsessed" by dubbing voices and we could not watch a movie together without saying "Hey the voice is the same that Kate Winslet had in Titanic",  "And he is also...the voice of Edward Norton"... nowadays we play that "game" less often.

That is a very bad example, because the moaning may sound to some of you who do not understand German  like porn, but actually it is  a commercial and I could not found a better one so quick: http://www.sprecherdatei.de/sprecher/Nicolas_B%C3%B6ll.php?demo=1

I finally found who I would choose for raphael, Edward Norton. not handsome in the classic sense of term and not alpha male but he can pull out the dangerous air quite nicely (see American History X). And he really has this very sexy decadent smile (well, I do have to fan myself when I see him smile...  :D)

And really for Kate, Rhonda Mitra (and definetely not Angelina Jolie). In my view, Rhonda Mitra really can pull out the role (see Doomsday) and she has less Barbie doll future than Angelina Jolie. I don't know why but I kind of picture Kate as having thos very classy features but who do not take the time to show them off.

As soon as I forget her guest appearance at the TV show Nip Tuck (2nd season), I agree that Rhoda Mitra would be a nice choice... but Nip Tuck was really, really aweful, I wish I could brainbleach that memory... *need brainbleachsmiley*

Anybody here considers Jessica Alba as Kate? - mentioned her at one of my earlier posts at this thread...



Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: Ying on October 15, 2009, 03:07:10 pm
Jessica Alba would be good. She can kick-ass. But I sort of have Evangeline Lily in my head. It's easier to cast Kate than Curran. Every time I try to cast Curran I have a picture of he-man in my head.

and yes, the sex scene was....  anti-climatic, somehow. and that's a pretty sad statement for a sex scene :D

That is a good Derek. Is that a current 28YO pic? I think the longer hair makes someone look younger but he's still gawky, that helps.

I think that pic is around two years old. Ben Barnes has been looking a bit rough lately, though.

That's a recent pic of him from September 2009. Maybe if he shaved and cut his hair he'd look more like Derek.

The two movies I've seen are "the lion, the witch and the wardrobe" and "prince caspian".

I enjoyed them - no they don't follow the books exactly, but the I think they captured the overall theme.   Worth opening the wrapper and taking a peek!   paW

don't shoot me peeps, but johnathan rhys-meyers doesn't do it for me. I keep staring at his lips, thinking that something's off with them. sure, other people might call those lips sensual. I call them HUGE AND TOO PRETTY FOR A MAN! :) and his eyes are a little too dreamy.

all in all, he's too pretty for me (just my personal opinion, though).  a little roughness, a little imperfection... mjam.

I have a pic here..... and yes, I know he is too old. I know, I know.... and maybe you all don't agree with me, but this guy (the lead singer of creed) is the KIND of guy I envision as derek. huge eyes with long lashes, but not so perfect it makes me want  to search for mistakes  :D

mind, I don't think he would be the ideal derek, just the type of guy I could envision as him. but he's probably 15 or more years too old by now :D

Bradley Cooper

Bradley's got some good facial features for Curran, but he doesn't look menacing enough in those photos.  Curran's actor needs to pull off intimidating very well.  I've never seen Bradley act, though, so I dunno.

I just never remember actors names.

Totally agree with Erick Elias for Raphael. 100% match IMHO.

Do I even want to think about an actress for Kate now? My mind is just on *drool* I suppose Kate Beckinsale would do, though I think she's a bit too pale.

Yep.  I showed this one to Gordon.  He growled a little bit.  

Just as an aside, from a woman's point of view and not a writer's, it is always better to say, "Oh look what X sent me.  Can you believe it?" rather than have him accidentally stumble on the email because I either accidentally forwarded it to him or because I wanted him to look at a particular email and he noticed this one instead.  I find honesty helps me avoid hot water, because people send me some seriously odd stuff sometimes.

I'm torn. Sure, the books provide supercool special effects. Modern technology could really do it justice. And it would be so WOW to see it on screen. But... I dunno. What if they totally get it wrong. Like cast a white European for Kate (irgs!). Or make it too fluffy and romantic to conform to Hollywood standards...

Maybe I'm too picky. But, as an example, the Harry Potter movies just didn't work for me. The actor who played Harry (forgot the name) was just so not how I'd imagined Harry. Totally put me off. So after the first two or so I gave up.

Daniel Radcliffe. I think the Harry Potter films get better from 4 onwards when they start getting a bit darker. I absolutely hate 3 and this is my favourite book so I nearly gave up on them.

Only film I think I've ever liked as much as the book is The Shining so whilst it'd be awesome if KD was made into a film I think everyone would expect something different and it's much more fun pretending on here where it's safe

It's hard because it could so easily be done wrong....I'd hate to see it ruined.  But at the same time, it'd be super cool if it was done correctly and well.  I just cringe thinking of the "Twilight" movies. I saw the first "Harry Potter" before I even read the books, so it was ok for me. (And I agree, book 3 was my favorite and the movie version was shoddy.)  LOTR was excellent. 

I just love the movie screen in my head....it's hard to compete with that sometimes, you know?

Oh, and I'm going to borrow some rope.  ;) I hope Raphael won't mind. *giggle*

LOTR had a huge budget and a huge fandom ready to rip off their heads if they got something wrong.

I totally understand....they left out a lot and added some things that never happened.  It's hard to enjoy movie versions of books sometimes.  Sometimes I'm able to leave it at the theater door and enjoy the movie for what it is....but most times I can't separate the 2 and the movie just doesn't do justice. 

But it's still fun to "Cast" our own movie of Kate.   :D

I ran across this picture and thought Derek. Just shave the facial hair off. He looks pretty young still and is on the pretty side. He might need to roughed up just a little bit though.

I assume you mean pre-Strikes.  Yeah, I can see that.  Can't see that as a roughed up Derek.  To pretty and doesn't look as though people would say "here's a guy who's been through some bad shit."  Nor does he look like a guy who kills people for a living.

I daresay it's going to be difficult to find a picture of Dereks "current" post-book-4 looks online. 3mily, was Derek ever described as having the looks of someone who killed for a living? I don't remember, but maybe after what happens to him in book 4?
Pre-strikes I think would be a good fit though, he looks like the kind of teenie-mass-swoon-inducing guy Kate sees him.

I'm just trying to think of a movie that has an appropriately "used" face in it and don't remember any. Could be due to my rather limited cinematic knowledge.

Meh, we can pawn some of that off on the makeup department.  Find a prettyboy actor for the first two movies and then hire a really good makeup director for movies 3 onward.

Have no idea what Craig looked like 20 years ago. I certainly did not care back then ;) Ah yeah but you're right, Craig looks slightly too old (maybe 10 years?) for Curran. Though with all the Kate related mess in his life, I'm sure there are worry and stress lines on his face...  ;D Still, Craig is my Curran vision. A girl can always dream. Those blue eyes..... DrOOl

dunno, but I think michelle rodgriguez might just be able to pull it off.  though she's not 100 % the kate I would envision (she's maybe just a bit 'too rough'), she played 'tough' roles where being pretty didn't matter that much... but she can be real striking, too! and the pretty pic I found even has a dress + hairstyle that more or less match with the one kate wears for fernando's

Curran???

That's Kristin Bell from Veronica Mars and Heroes. I have a girl crush on her, and she can totally do TOUGH-girl, but still has that face that people would tell their life stories to. :)

I could see Sam Worthington as Curran. He's only supposed to be 31, so he's not too young for it.

I always pictured Colin Farrell with longer hair as Bran:

Guys, does anybody know who Ilona would cast as Curran or who was she thinking about when coming up with that character looks?

Majority of people here choose actors who are above 40 year old, when Curran in books is 31 with the face of 20 something guy...
Hugh Jackman or Gerald Butler so not working for me!

I've conveniently ignored that
Curran in books is 31 with the face of 20 something guy...

I have conveniently ignored the latter since I read Craig Daniel's name and imagined him with a few lines less. He's got the right colouring and the intensity. Show me the real twentysomething blonde that is not soft around the edges?

Heck and I haven't even seen any of the Bond movies. I just had a look at a few pictures. Will I be mortally obsessed as soon as I see him in action?

I think he could work in a stretch, because Jim is suppose to be an imposing guy, not pretty, and it usually takes some size to have that come across on screen.   Smexy voice a must of course.   paW

My first thought was "Oh no, he's much too severe to be likeable".  But then I remembered that we see Jim filtered through Kate's perceptions, and he actually is a solemn and imposing presence.  So I like him for Jim, even though because my gut says that this guy is no fun at all.

Has anyone suggested Megan Fox (she's 24) for Kate? I can see her with Dean Winchester as Curran (he is actually 31). How about Taylor Lautner for Ascanio.
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: Hurog_Kate on June 06, 2010, 04:49:08 pm
No. No. NO. NO. NO. Not Megan Fox. EVER. I loathe her. I would actually NOT go see the movie if she was in it. (It's not even about her limited acting ability... but about the fact that in every interview I've ever read with her, she comes off as a vapid, self-absorbed, Hollywood tart... and she brings that quality to every role she's ever played, IMO.)

Sorry -- I know she has a lot of fans out there but she just makes me shudder.

Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: jessie18 on June 06, 2010, 05:03:27 pm
I can't say I have a massive problem with Megan Fox - I've only seen her in Transformers, but she does seem to have an 'arrogant' air about her. But that's just my first impression.
What I would say was that to me, personally, Kate is less of an 'obvious', poster-girl kind of beauty. More of a tough, slightly 'different' looking, have to look a bit deeper, kind of pretty.
If that makes any sense whatsoever. I quite like the 'Kate' that's on the old release covers and on the Magic Bleeds cover - I imagine her to look somewhat like that, maybe a bit less pouty lips and busty. :P Otherwise, think the model was rather dead-on.
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: CheeseBK on June 07, 2010, 03:02:40 am
I don't have a problem with megan fox because she is who she is (and yes, kate, I have to agree in most interviews she comes across as rather bitchy), but mostly because I just can't picture her as kate.
the kate in my head is somehow rougher, you know what I mean?
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: Ajna on June 07, 2010, 10:38:51 pm
I like Megan Fox in the movies I have seen her in and I have never seen her interviews, I HATE entertainment news so I tend to avoid it.

Anyway Megan Fox does not feel like Kate to me, btw who was on the original book? All of my books have the same lady who is not Kate to me either.
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: Jazza on June 09, 2010, 10:20:21 pm
Hi,

I am new at this forum.
When I read the books I always had Kate Beckinsale in mind as Kate, not only because it is the same first name, but because she really rocks at the Underworld Movies and proofed she can be a real hard-ass fighter.

I cannot help, but I also always had Matthew McConaughey in mind as Curran or another suggestion is Josh Lucas - although both are a little older than Curran.

For Derek, I thought about someone who is not really an actor but a famous European soccer player: Christiano Ronaldo http://www.freewebs.com/cristiano-ronaldo-pictures/cristiano-ronaldo-photo.jpg



Cristiano Ronaldo reminds me too much of Raphael... just my 2 bits :)

I can't seem to find a good picture of him but for some reason whenever I see Christian Kane in Leverage I think Curran. He seems to be one of those people that has charisma when acting but it doesn't really come across in any photo that I could find. Just imagine him without the long hair unless you are thinking during the flare.

The picture doesn't do him justice, you have to watch the show and watch him fight.

@Kalimera I think that's a good fit for kate, specially on the 2nd picture.

I was watching E entertainment the other day and Maxim 100 hottest women was on and Moon Bloodgood (I'm not sure that's her real name) was on the count down, she was in Terminator Salvation, I haven't seen the movie so I don't really know what roll she played, but when I saw her on the screen she reminded me of Kate with the slightly elongated almond-shaped eyes and I think she looks tough enough.

I think she would make a better Eve Dallas especially the second picture if they ever make a movie of the J D Robb books IMHO. She looks a little too old for Kate.

Okay, I've been over every page of this thread.  Oh, the burden.  Oh, the pain.

 DrOOl

And now I'm going to show you people just how old I am.  He's a d-list, straight-to-dvd actor who's too old to play Curran but this is who I visualize:

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_HQtYHYy2Hpc/SZwhw3ukJpI/AAAAAAAAAjo/gQ_opbMLgCU/s400/270px-Dolph_Lundgren.jpg

If I were actually casting the actual movie, I'd cast Garrett Hedlund:

http://content.internetvideoarchive.com/content/photos/6321/26551519_.jpg

He's a bit young, but a movie takes years so, by the time production actually started he'd probably be the perfect age.  I tried to get a Tron pic but it wouldn't paste.  Those are the most Currany.   8)

Post by: Kitara on August 30, 2010, 03:25:02 am
Shorty, wow. The first actor is actually very good. Pity he is too old now.

I saw the second one and immediately thought, "Too Pretty-Boy." Even with more years on him I think he would be too pretty boy. Like Derek. Die the hair brown and do you think he looks like a Derek pre-rakshasas?
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: SylviaSybil on August 30, 2010, 03:46:27 am
Seconded, the first actor is good.  He's got the bad-ass face going on.  And his muscles are so developed they have that vein popping - so ew - but I think pretty realistic.

The second actor's face is too emotive, I think.  Although I got distracted by the neck. :P

wow, this is a fun thread.
I see lots of people picture Curran in a twenty-something age.
But to me, I always think of him a lot older than Kate...
Todd Lowe from True Blood is who I picture as Curran. But he doesn't have too much muscle, so I have to connect his face with other guy's body lol

As for Kate, she is always the model on the cover of Magic Bites in Chinese version.

For Andrea, I like the girl from Twilight. She looks like she's capable of managing guns. Normally I will dye her hair in my imagination.

Don't know if anyone mention Dr. Doolittle. But for me, Danny Glover fits the image.

However, his schedule is pretty full.  He's already pegged as both Rhage (BDB) and V'lane (Fever) for a lot of fans of those series, so he's kind of every-hero.   ;)

I think Bridget is on the right track as far as some of Kate's facial structure, but I think she is a bit too Celtic looking (too light skinned, etc.). I am trying to figure out myself who would be good and I am drawing a BIG BLANK. A least you came up with a good idea!

So I found the perfect Curran.  The problem is he isn't an actor but the CEO of the company I work for, not good.  I haven't seen him since I read these books but Tuesday he walked into my office and all thought left me except for OMG, hello Curran.  He's about six feet tall and all muscle.  I wouldn't call him handsome but attractive.  He looks hard as nails but once you get to know him he is actually very nice as long as you don't disapoint him.  He is also very protective and in-love with his wife (very sweet!).  When he walks into the conference room everyone goes silent and all eyes are on him.  It's very intimidating.

Anyway, for three days I had him siting accross my desk asking me detail questions about our plant (I'm the controller) and all I could think is that Ilona had describe him nude, in detail.  Very uncomfortable.  Now I know the impact I'll have my wits about me next time.  Don't get me wrong I'm married and very attracted to my own husband but no kidding this guy is exactly how Ilona has discribed him.

HOW CRAZY!
That is so funny, actually.  ;D

I think I'm going to side with Shellette on this one.  I like Cote de Pablo.  She's lovely while at the same time having just the right touch of exotic and experience playing the bad a$$ (and smart a$$).  Downside is that it might be type casting with her.  She's mainly known for playing Ziva David, the tough-as-nails assassin and secret agent. 

Portman could pull it off.  She's flexible and talented as an actress, able to go from action to sci-fi to high drama and do them all convincingly.  I just don't know if she has the right look for the part.  She looks so... Hollywood Perfect.  That's not necessarily a bad thing, I just always pictured Kate as being unconventionally pretty.

Of the suggestions so far, I go with Portman as well. I think she has the acting chops to carry off a tough-persona role, even with her beautiful face. And if this movie was made, I would expect Hollywood to go with someone who would be more beautiful that we expect from Kate. That's the movie business.  :)

funny, but she doesn't work for me, at all. Don't get me wrong, I think she's a great actress and has played her share of rough roles, but I can't see her as Kate. Not at all.

Michelle Rodriguez is very clearly Hispanic.  Kate is very clearly not.  If anything, she'd look like a mix of Caucasian and Middle-Eastern.  Also Michelle Rodriguez was in that horrid Machete movie.  Bleah. 

That said, I don't want to argue and have my choice picked to pieces.  I like Serinda for Kate and since I kind of wrote the books, y'all's Kates will have to get in line after mine.  :P  I declare Serinda Swan to be Queen Kate.  All other Kates can be ladies in waiting.

In my head, Aunt B is either her or Judi Dench, though Ms. Dench is a bit too old for being Aunt B, I think. :-[ Judi Dench from 10 years ago, though... :)


Maybe I already suggested her here or somewhere else, but what about Lauren Lee Smith (http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3219227904/nm0809049) as Andrea? I think she's got the right eyes and hair too. :)

I also suppose Stana Katic (http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2841164288/nm1065664) could be one of "Queen Kate's Ladies in Waiting". ;D I know her from the Castle tv-show and she reminds me of Kate with her humor. :)

Ron Glass is pretty close, even though he looks a bit older than I thought Doolittle would and I think Doolittle had darker skin. He does have a nice expression. From Bites: "Of average height and stocky, he had dark skin, glossy with an ebony sheen, and graying black hair, cut military style. The eyes peering at me through the thin-framed glasses were at once intelligent and brimming with humor as if someone had just told him an off-color joke and he was trying his best not to laugh."

I agree with this part, that guy isn't really how I pictured Doolittle. Remember the med guy from the Altantis cartoon? I know it's a cartoon character, but if we could find a little older, real life version of him- that's what I picture.
Going to see if I can find a pic of the cartoon character...
ETA: Found this while looking and had to share:
By these photos, a real life John Henry would be more of how I picture Dr. Doolittle.
(http://www.dumage.com/img/art/modern-disneys-man-vs-old-time-disneys-man/modern-disneys-man-vs-old-time-disneys-man15.jpg)
And because I mentioned him, Sweet from Atlantis:
(http://www.dumage.com/img/art/modern-disneys-man-vs-old-time-disneys-man/modern-disneys-man-vs-old-time-disneys-man16.jpg)

Actually, looking at them together, I'm still thinking Sweet is closer to the image in my brain. And no, it isn't bc of his...ahem...endowments. I'm looking at body type/size.  ;D
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: wont on April 22, 2011, 12:18:19 pm
LOL! I had not thought of Doolittle as that muscled. :o Maybe.....

I just keep thinking of him with the blue-black skin, but, smooth. I have seen black men (and women) who had smooth, almost unlined skin and looked far younger than their true ages. I suppose I am thinking the shapeshifter component would help with this. Having salt and pepper hair would age him to a degree, but, not cause him to appear elderly. (IMO only of course).

I agree about the darker skin, I do picture him darker. My reference to Sweet was more of how I picture the size & shape of his body. I also agree that the graying hair doesn't mean he's old. Some men gray very young. My uncle had gray hair in his twenties. Look at Steve Martin. That's why the pic offered before didn't strike me as Doolittle. That actor was older and had the gravity/softness that comes with age. I don't see Doolittle as having that. I guess I picture him as muscled because of the average height & stocky description. I added that with the knowledge that Curran makes his shifters practice self-defense/ work-out and ended up with muscled I guess. But I don't picture him as being someone most women would start drooling over as soon as he entered the room. I tend to think you'd notice the inteligence first, and you'd have to look to notice the physique. Not sure if I'm describing this very well, but that's how I picture him.

The most notable things about Doolittle in my mind are his smile and inteligence. I tend to think of him having a nice, big smile, when he smiles. I'm sure I must've got that from something in the writing but can't remember where?
The character of Sweet from the movie has layers, like Doolittle. At first he's mild-mannered and tends to blend in, but there's a real strength to him and inteligence, and he's got a mega-watt smile. The over-all impression reminds me of Doolittle.
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: mims on April 22, 2011, 05:42:04 pm
I always just assumed that Doolittle was older.  Well actually I have to admit that when I read the Doolittle parts I always imagine him as a real man sized badger a la Russell Hoban.

While checking out Thor I saw someone who could be cast as Kate  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1526352/  Her name is Jaimie Alexander.  

Ted - Jeff Bridges http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000313/
Mahon - maybe Stellan Skarsgard http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001745/

I love Jeff Bridges! I would so hate for him to be a despicable person like Ted. I know actors like variety, but I don't want to dislike him! LOL!

I've always thought John Goodman would make a good Ted. (http://i950.photobucket.com/albums/ad346/wonttorit/Ted1.jpg)

I had trouble finding a photo of him where he wasn't smiling. He's probably too old now, but I thought body wise he fit. I think he normally plays a happy type, but in that Coen Brothers film with George Clooney, he was definitely a baddie!

Jeff Bridges was such a good villain in Iron Man.  He also played a bad guy in The Vanishing too.  Jo Goodman would also be a good Ted or even Mahon.  I see him in team Heavy.  lol

hmm, I have this gentleman-vision of doolittle. I think michael clarke duncan is a great actor, but not 'my' doolittle.
I would think the looks a bit like this one:

this is ron glass, btw, in his role as shepherd book in the series firefly.


EDIT: *lol* I just saw that  a few posts back ron glass was already suggested :D

This would be my Doolittle also. But now Ilona can't kill him cause Ron has already had a beloved character die LOL

John Goodman as Ted - pure genius!!!

Ilona's Kate is good so is half naked Kate though, although I have no idea who she is and she needs to put some more clothes on!!!

You need a picture of him smiling, 'cause his face just doesn't look right without it. Sorta like Michael Clarke Duncan. He's got the build of a badass, but the smile lines of a big softie. Plus, he's got a nice smile. And very blue eyes. noDDing... However, he's almost 50, so he's a bit too old.

I have changed my mind about Jim. Now it has to be: Boris Kodjoe

Some bio facts:

Quote
The essence of a renaissance man is someone who is accomplished in multiple disciplines, and who has a broad base of knowledge and interests. Boris Kodjoe is well educated, with award-winning athletics and modeling experience under his belt, not to mention a thriving career in acting, a mastery of French, English, German (and some Spanish), an up and coming clothing line and a innate passion for culture and for his family, hence why he is the epitome of a renaissance man.
 

Kodjoe, the son of a German psychologist and a Ghanaian physician, has a unique background that spans the globe. Growing up in Germany, Kodjoe moved to the US when he was 18 to attend Virginia Commonwealth University on a tennis scholarship. To see him now and hear him speak with his perfect American accent, many forget that he is German. “People don’t understand that I’m from Germany cause they look at me and they assume I’m from here.” But it is his culturally diverse upbringing makes him who he is.

In January Ilona answered this question for me in the 'Ask the Author' thread. She said Doolittle appears to be in his mid-fifties. I'm sure that was the wording somewhere, but I've forgotten which book. That's why for me Morgan Freeman looked too old. He is about 75 and looks it. I think he is a wonderful actor, just too old for Doolittle. I took from some of the descriptions that Doolittle's skin was quite dark (blue-black). I'm still looking. Sigh. I previously posted a photo of a gray-haired man, don't know his name. I now think he would not fit.

I love him too. He is closer than MF. I think he may be too light skinned. Doolittle was described as having blue-black skin. I'm thinking almost as dark as the man above who was suggested for Jim.

Curran would be the hardest to cast followed by Derek. For Curran I noticed a lot of people posting pics of men who are either "cute" or on the "pretty" side. Even some that look more like weasles instead of lion like. Age is also a factor. He needs to look strong, intimidating, intelligent, confident, arrogant and dangerous... not easy for someonw who is blonde. Usually the dark haired men look more on the dangerous side. This is what I found after looking for ages. His name is Eric Dane.(http://i894.photobucket.com/albums/ac142/Tammy_Hallowell/Eric_Dane-2.jpg)

Sniggle: We had suggested Eric Dane to Ilona on another thread, she thought he looked like Leonardo DiCaprio!!! Except for the age factor, I thought he was perfect. We even found a photo of him sans shirt that showed some muscle. Not quite as is described in the books, but still nice. I think ED projects the strength you would want from Curran. Even if she didn't pick him, Ilona has said many times the casting is subjective and we all will have different choices. Sigh. And I agree about the blond problem too.

I ended up ranting a raving to my older sister about Aunt Petunia just was not right. She pointed out that maybe the director/ J.K thought she had the right attitude and worked well in that role, which she did.


Finding the perfect Curran and Kate can be considered impossible, but I'd rather the act the part better than look the part.
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: wont on August 09, 2011, 03:43:12 am
LadySoria, I agree completely. Between Jensen Button, Eric Dane and my blond-mystery-guy-in-the-hoodie (a few pages back), I would be on Cloud Nine I think with any of them as Curran. However, if the chosen person couldn't project some of what we would expect from the Beast Lord, his face would cease to matter.

I've seen this happen time and again, the right actor can take the role and make it their own. When that happens, you can't see anyone else in that role. Of course I'm drawing blank, but one such person (for me) would be Alan Rickman as Snape. I think he is the ultimate actor and he would not have occurred to me for that role. Now, I could never see someone else as Snape. He owns it.

The hunting is fun though! :D
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: sniggle on August 09, 2011, 04:17:35 am
Curran i think would be the hardest to cast because the character is so dynamic. He has to be 2 people rolled into one, the "face" of Curran and the "hidden in shadows" Curran. I have seen Eric Dane in several roles and I think he would be able to pull it off. He can be very harsh and dominant, yet subtle in his manerisms. His moods and thoughts even show in his eyes when he really gets into a role. Also his voice is strong yet silky smooth... a true seducer. Curran's role would need to be filled with an actual actor... someone who has experience.

Until we have more on Roland in the books, and that may not happen until the end, sniff, I think casting him would be hard. Since Kate is said to resemble him we could start with that. I'm thinking dark hair and eyes. I also think the most important feature for Roland would be to radiate menace. In spades. eviL

Viggo is an excellent actor, but I'm with Cheese, can't see him as Curran. For one thing, I'm pretty sure he's too short. I still like Eric Dane. He has such an aura of strength. That jaw! Definitely lion-like. ;D

She is an Indian actress and model. She was in the remake of The Pink Panther a few years ago. Here is a link to more photos:

She is.  She's been in tons upon tons of Bollywood films. She also won the Miss World pageant in 1994, and is routinely cited as the most beautiful woman in the world.

She's a pretty good actress (according to Bollywood standards ;D ). But I don't really see her as Kate.  Plus, you'd have problems when you got to Book4 - Indian actresses (and actors!) don't have sex on screen.  And I mean, anything that suggests that sex occurred is out of the question as well.  Rules have been changing a lot in the past 5 years, in fact, I heard of a movie where there was a bedroom scene, but I don't know how open Ms. Rai-Bachchan would be to that.  Especially considering how hesitant she was about an on-screen kiss several years ago (http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xe2e70_aishwarya-rai-60-minutes-the-kiss-2_shortfilms).

Rai is exquisite, and she could definitely carry of Kate in looks.  However, even putting aside the fact that I think she likely wouldn't be comfortable with the level of sexual themes in American films, I don't think I've ever seen her play anything like Kate's character.  She's  outspoken and relatively forward thinking in "Bride and Prejudice" that's a far cry from a kick-butt merc like Kate.  I'm not convinced that she could convincingly pull off a hardened killer.

I would never have thought of Demi Moore for Erra, but I agree. At least in looks, she would be great. One problem, wasn't Erra over six feet tall? I thought she was much taller than Kate. Demi is tiny. :(

No, I missed that one.  The clip looks promising.  I'll have to find the full movie.  How were the acting and story?

so then we're left only with what may be a reluctance on Rai's part to get into the often heavy-handed sex scenes in US movies.  That's one thing that Bollywood has over Hollywood.  Bollywood portrays sexuality and sensuality with far more class where Hollywood often uses it to cover up a weak plot.


One other possible thing = is it possible that she may be too attractive to be Kate?

There's a sword scene with Ash in Jodha Akbar, but Bollywood action scenes are kind of pathetic so I'm not even going to link it.  I haven't seen Legion, so I'm not sure about her ability to play soldier/merc.  Looks-wise I think she'd be fine, but I'm not sure how well she could act the role.  She's often type-cast into the lead actress role, and their only job in Bollywood movies is to smile, be beautiful, and look horrified whenever things aren't going according to plan.  She dances quite well, which puts her a notch above most of the other Bollywood actresses, but if you want a girl who can act (which I wholeheartedly prefer, lol), Rani Mukerjee or Lara Dutta are probably the best out of Bollywood.

Rani Mukerjee

That's what I was thinking.  Demi has the look for Erra and we know she can pull off the attitude.  I could easily see her as a psychopath willing to kill her own children so she could pilot their undead bodies.

Nice choice of Demi Moore as Erra, Kalimera!

****edited to add****
This is as close as I can get for a casting call for Roman.  The Irish Gypsy character is from the movie Chocolat.  He's smooth and charming with hidden depths.  The actor is Johnny Depp.  It's not exactly how I picture Roman but the Gypsy character's personality is what I think would match.

She's very pretty, Kalimera.

I've always pictured Kate looking like a younger version of the actress Claudia Christian.  This actress has played kick-butt characters before, and looks so much like what I visualize as Kate.

Post by: Chelle on February 12, 2012, 09:17:23 pm
Have we looked at any of the female martial artists?  Or perhaps professional dancers.  Kate often describes herself as being slender or muscular, and not having much in the way of feminine curves without the right clothing.  She's describing the body of someone who works herself hard, like the body of a trained fighter or dancer.  Many of these women are gorgeous as well as buff.  Just look at Summer Glau.  The reason she does so well in fight scenes is because her dance training makes her a natural with the choreography.

My first post! whoopwhoopwhoop

I always had a mental image of Kate having a Persian or Indo-European look - so I've tended to look towards actresses from that background.

I know she is too old, but I love the look of Bahar Soomekh.  She's American, of Persian Jewish heritage, and was in the movie "Crash" and a couple of the "Saw" movies.  Unfortunately, she's pushin' 40.

For Kate  - this has been the most difficult how about Michelle Trachtenberg – she’s part Russian ! But I don’t know if she can pull of the tough-girl.

I like this girl. Never heard of her before, but she seems to have that intangible "thing" Kate would have.

Man this is tough!

Even though he wasn't my first choice, I think Chris Hemsworth would be a great Curran. He may be taller than Curran is written in the books, but I think it's normal for Hollywood to lean in the direction of taller/prettier/more handsome, etc. If someone is suppose to carry the lead in a movie (big bucks on their shoulders), Hollywood will try to insure a positive reaction from the masses. Now, every photo I've seen of Chris, he has long hair. I'm very curious as to how he would look with Curran's short hair.  ???

Personally, Chris Hemsworth has been Curran to me ever since I saw Thor. He doesn't have that muscle in his other roles though, he gained 30 pounds of muscle for the role of Thor. If you take it away the muscle, you don't think of Curran so quickly. If you want to see him younger and with shorter hair go back and watch the start of the latest Star Trek...the guy playing George Kirk is Chris without the longer hair and extra 30 pounds of muscle.

Here is a picture that is a few years old of Chris (on the left) and his brother (yes ladies, he has a brother who acts also  :) ). The other three are just because I had to share the eye candy with you. ;)

This might be a little tangential, but one thing I love about the Kate Daniels series is that it isn't written to be made into a movie. I recently went back and re-read books 1-5, and I noticed this time how freaking hard it would be to put a lot of this on film. The half forms would probably look ridiculous unless you have some super-expensive special effects folks, and then there's Saiman's shape shifting, not to mention the appearance of the vampires, and the demon tentacles, etc etc. I love that the Andrews team doesn't hold back with the magic just to make it easy to translate to the screen.

That said, totally joining the Chris Hemsworth as Curran bandwagon!

Today was a very good day. I found my Kate !  weightS
I went to the movies to see Haywire (which was awesome, by the way), and the first thing I thought was "Oh my god !! That's Kate !"
Here is Gina Carano for you :

She could definitely kick some serious ass, but the movie I saw her in, I thought she was not a very good actress.

I was having this discussion with a friend of my I persuaded to read the books, as when I read I picture the characters as if a movie but strangely my friend doesn't!  Or maybe it's me that's strange...


Doc:   Morgan Freeman - yes I know he's a tad bit older than Doc, but like many others it's who I always picture.
Rowena:  Christina Hendricks, that red hair, well endowed, a wiggle in her a walk (a wiggle, not Wiggles...)
Ghastek:  Christopher Heyerdahl (those who watch Sanctuary will know him as John Druitt/Bigfoot)
Dali:  Tania Gunadi (just picture her with glasses)
Jim: D B Woodside (I know he's in his early 40s, but to me at least he doesn't look his age and I would have placed him very early 30s)
Daniel:  Josh Lucas (I know some suggested him as Curran but ahh well this is where I see him)
Mahon: Brian Blessed (with a quieter voice if thats even possible)

Bono: Cillian Murphy - there's something just that little bit creepy/wrong about him that works well in the characters he plays.

Raphael: I always struggled with that one, but Ilona made a good call with Erick Elias I have to admit :)

Oh, I thought she was a total cold fish in Haywire. She had the action scenes down in an amazing way, but when it came time to actually act... I wasn't impressed. :(

Not going near Kate or Curran, but here are some of my thoughts on some of the other characters.

For Andrea, Kristen Bell. She even looks a little like the picture on the cover of Gunmetal Magic.
(http://ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/MV5BNTQ2NjU5NTE4N15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNDExNDk1Mw@@._V1._SY314_CR45,0,214,314_.jpg)

For Jim, I have to go with Idris Elba, every time.
(http://abagond.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/idris-elba.jpg)

My ideal Doolittle will always be a younger Ossie Davis. Obviously, wishful thinking on my part since the man has sadly passed away.
(http://www.zuguide.com/image/Ossie-Davis-Jungle-Fever.6.jpg)

For Ascanio, I'd go with Max Schneider.
(http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-vQf3FMswI9o/T7i_5CMFudI/AAAAAAAAANQ/JSjIxRlZ6yg/s400/max.jpg)

Finally, for Julie, it would depend on how close to the character's actual age they wanted to case, since it's not uncommon for people in their late teens and twenties to play young teens, due to laws on minors working. At the younger end, I'd go with Chloe Moretz.
(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-V3EDHaR8XZg/T2Wj9QVjKbI/AAAAAAAAAp8/u-JPlXFxjnE/s400/Chloe%2B-Moretz-new-2012-beautiful-pics-6.jpg)

On the older end, Dakota Fanning.

What do you think of this actor for Doolittle? It's Andre Braugher.

(http://i950.photobucket.com/albums/ad346/wonttorit/doolittle3.jpg)

He is fifty this year, so almost the right age.

He is closest for me so far.

Have you seen Jim Sturgess in Cloud Atlas? He has done really good fighting scenes. I think I would like him as Derek, but perhaps he could also be Raphael? He has that kind of bouda look in his eyes - all play and mischief...

Angie Harmon, too old, and too pretty. Plus I don't see her in some of the situations Kate lands in.

She's pulled off both a cop and a lawyer - granted that might lean more towards Kate, but you're right in the age and being too pretty - but I suspect she could pull off psycho b from heck

Yeah Serinda Swan is perfect. Just about what I imagine but she is really good looking.

Not sure about LLcoolJ for Jim maybe just too tough - not really hot enough. My vote is for DB Woodside.

Not many people have mentioned Roland and I know we haven't even had a description of him yet but watching a film last week and there he was!

Otto Gotz

http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3531648768/nm0653248

He is 6ft 6.  He would fit in well as Erra's brother.

I could see him charming and menacing!

Actually he's almost the exact age as Curran, and he's a bit taller which doesn't hurt. Curran just seems older. I can't visualize Curran looking young.

Ug, I don't even want to think of these books being made into movies, or even worse a tv series.  I'd watch, but would probably be hugely disappointed.

Jurassic Park was an excellent book that was made into a mediocre movie, and though I watched and enjoyed the series, I still cringe with what they did to Harry Dresden, turned him into a hockey stick wielding dork with a receding hairline... Ack

They'd turn Kate into Xena or something and though there is nothing wrong with Xena per se, that is not Kate

I'm kind of with you, having seen my share of unfortunate adaptations, but there is no denying that selling tv or film rights can take away a lot of financial worries for an author. However, since in selling the rights to the story the author also loses any control over it, the sale can bring on a whole new set of worries. Aside from the inevitable disappointment some fans will have at even those changes truly necessary to move the story into the visual arts, tv and film tremendously increase the pool of fans, and along with that tremendously increase the thankfully much smaller pool of entitled nutcases who show up online and in person. Things do not go back exactly as they were after that, no matter how hard one may wish for it. Story rights are a genie that almost never goes back into its bottle.

PERFECT!  She's had some supporting roles in movies, enough to get her face out there. Now that the show has been optioned, if they go tv series, it could be a very good launch for her as lead. 

She should be paired opposite another not-too-famous person for Curran. I'm a David
Lyons fan. He's not too tall, has the right coloring with the blonde hair, is nicely ripped and can do intimidation. However he might be too pretty to be Curran.

What do you think ?
Title: Re: The Casting Thread...
Post by: Chelle on August 14, 2016, 06:41:58 am
Very nice. The good thing about the mother-daughter dynamic in the series is that Kate is said to resemble her father, so you don't have to worry as much about the actresses matching. Kate is likely to be a few shades darker, maybe a few inches taller and probably quite a bit more muscular than Kalina.

As for the idea of David as Curran, I was thinking more season two of Revolution David. He scruffs up well, able to pull off bada$$ and scary then hit you with the "boyish" smile that makes you stumble in surprise.

Then again, what do I know? I think Billy Burke should be the new Harry Dresden now that they've reoptioned that series. There just aren't a lot of actors that are tall, roughly the circumference of a #2 pencil and can snark in their sleep.

Swinton's natural androgyny makes her a powerful choice.  After seeing her as Gabrielle in Constantine, I've no doubt she could pull off Saiman.  She would bring that air of aloof self-superiority that is the hallmark of the character.

Based on this photo, yes she looks like a good candidate for Kate.

Sorry, David Lyons, for me, isn't even close to being Curran. His hair color possibly is close, but he's much too small. Almost looks fragile. If it ever gets that far, I too hope they find an unknown who would fit.
