The Mental Casting Call

20 Mar

Whenever I read a book, I look closely for the clues, descriptions and actions that define the main characters.  When I have a clear idea of how these character look and act, I then scroll through my mental list of actors and cast my book.

I don’t think I’m alone in this, why? Well, because when a book is in pre-production to become a film we all can have such different visuals as to who should be cast. I recall four years ago when Robert Pattinson was cast as Edward Cullen in Twilight, oh lawd the uproar, there were even petitions to have him recast lol.  Well we all know how that worked out, in the end Rob became everyones Edward.

Recent casting revolves around The Hunger Games series and the Mortal Instruments series.  I can honestly say I’m not emotionally vested in any of the casting for these films but I do have some favourites.  Over the next few weeks I’m going to share with you some of my picks for casting these films. I won’t be casting all the characters, just the ones for which I have a definite top pick. I’m also going to share some character visuals for other beloved books of mine.  I hope you’ll share yours.

    Yeah, I had a totally hotter version of Edward in my head for Twilight, but oh well. They did already cast Katniss with Jennifer Lawrence and I think she’d be perfect! But I didn’t know they were making the mortal instruments a movie series. How exciting!!!!

      I completely agree Jennifer Lawrence is a great actress and hair, make-up and wardrobe can transform her into Katniss perfectly. :))
