Jumping the Gun Just a Little

I know my book isn't even officially released yet but I've been thinking who would I cast if it ever got made into a movie.  Oh come on!  We all do it!  Every book you read, you get a very specific idea of what the characters look like.  Of course, if the book does get made into a movie (*ahem* Twilight) everyone is upset with the actor choices.

Now sometimes the actor does so well no one really cares they don't look just like them because they are them, but sometimes the actor doesn't and everyone is still upset! :)

The point of this is that I've begun a board on Pinterest for my vision of Army of Sorrow.  If you've read my book I would be EXTREMELY interested in who you think should play who.  I have yet to find an appropriate Abiageal so if you have suggestions for her please let me know!

  1. I love doing this! Sometime I should post pics of actors/actresses who look like my characters on my blog. I have a few people who are amazingly perfect :)

    1. It's really fun, however I'm having a difficult time picking for some of my characters (too many awesome choices!) and others, I can't seem to find any that work...guess that's why it's not really my job! :) By the way, are your books going to be available in eBook form? My husband is intrigued but he really only reads on his tablet.

    2. The one that will be published by the end of the month will be in ebook soon after the hard copy comes out. My others I'm planning to make into ebooks by Christmas. I'm going to do a second edition and re-edit them before hand though.

    3. I was thinking Emma Stone or AnnaSophia Robb for Brea, but Molly C Quinn is perfect! What about Josh Hutcherson for Caith?

    4. That's funny cause Gail and I were discussing this too and I said I wanted Liam Hemsworth (also a hunger games actor)for my main character:) and Gail said she'd want him for Caith too! So Josh Hutcherson works too! Long story, prob confusing!

    5. I hadn't thought of AnnaSophia! I think she might make an awesome Orla...I did think of Emma Stone as an alternative. Josh Hutcherson is a bit short to play Caith...what do you think of him as Orin?

  2. I could see Josh Hutcherson as Orin. I think AnnaSophia could pull off Orla or Brea, but I do think she looks kind of Leprechaunish in a way. Another thing to consider is if the said actors could pull of a believable Irish accent! I love Jamie Bell but he is probably too old now. What about some of the Harry Potter actors?

    1. I did look some of them up but they just didn't fit for my book...however the kids from Narnia would be awesome, if not for this book maybe my next. Lucy as Cordy anyone? :)
