Book Casting

April 30, 2013

This was a Readathon Challenge that I liked but didn’t get around to over the weekend.

Cast the characters in the book you’re reading:

So a recap of the books I was reading

Cote de Pablo, image from IMDBThe Chalice- Nancy Bilyeau

Cote de Pablo from NCIS would make an excellent Joanna Stafford. Beautiful, with dark hair,  intensely smart and a force to be reckoned with.

The others in that book are tougher. I can’t think of anyone quite scary enough to play Gardiner. Gertrude sort of made me picture Kristin Chenoweth, but I’m not completely sold there. Brother Edmund, I also have no idea. My picture of him was more about a general sense of broad shoulders under his robe, a rough voice, maybe a beard, rather than clearly picturing his face.

Ghost Hero by S.J. Rozan. I told Dad about the casting challenge, and he was stumped too. We both have a really clear picture of Lydia Chin, knowing that she’s Chinese American, not terribly tall, smart, sarcastic, and fierce. So I was trying to think of actresses. Lucy Liu crossed my mind and nope… I don’t think she’s easy enough to underestimate at first glance. And my picture of Lydia Chin is that she doesn’t look like a force to be reckoned with, but then you see her in action. I think the actress that could play her should be someone who isn’t already a celebrity.

    You must love Lucy Liu from watching CBS’ ELEMENTARY on which she plays Girl Watson. I remember you tweeting about ELEMENTARY regarding the role of Girl Watson played by Lucy Liu.

    I can see you are a clear and avid fan of crime and mystery shows on CBS.
