So I was thinking earlier about how cool it would be if my Vital Secrets books got picked up by one of the streaming video services, and who I think would be really good choices to play the characters.
I say streaming services, because there’s just way too much good stuff to try to cram into a ninety-minute or even two-hour feature film.
Now granted, between the day job and the writing, I don’t watch much stuff on TV lately. But I know who and what I like, and who I think would really bring Nathan and Lizzie and the rest of the cast to life properly.
If I had a chance to build my ‘dream team’ to bring my stories over into a visual medium, my choices would be (drum roll please):
Character Name – Actor/Actress
- Nathan Thomas – Cam Gigandet
- Bella Amsel Thomas – Elizabeth Olsen
- Lizzie Zimmerman – Scarlet Johansson
- Donny Atherton – Chris Evans
- Rick Conner – Chris Pratt
- Faith Thomas Conner – Melissa McCarthy
- Max Jones – Sam Elliott or Gary Sinise
Now, ya’ll know that there are more recurring characters than what’s listed here. But this list is a good start in the whole ‘If I could do this and pick anyone I want’ department!
Will it ever happen? Who knows.
But man, would I love to see this amazingly talented bunch of people bring my stories to life on a screen somewhere…
