Casting Call?

If you're anything like me, you like casting different people in movie roles...especially if it's an adaptation of a book.

For example, my lovely friend (and s talented opera singer) Megan Welenc would make a wonderful Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter. Evanna Lynch did a fab job. Megan would've as well. She's just got this sweet whimsy thing going on. And she can act.

Then there's casting actors in movie roles. There's been lots of debate as to if this guy will do a good job of portraying Suzanne Collins's Finnick from The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire. (We'll see!)

Another fun thing to do--don't judge--is to cast characters in certain franchises/fandoms in other franchises/fandoms.

Say they had made A Christmas Carol episode of the 80's/90's TV show Full House?

Danny, of course, would be Scrooge. Instead of a miser, he'd be his usual dust-a-phobic self. My family sat down and thought up which FH characters would play Dickens's. We even had the plot twisted to fit...

What about you? (Please tell me my family is not alone in this madness!)

What actors or friends would you cast in an adaptation of your favorite book?
