|10:17 pm - Dream Casting: Cassandra Clare's "The Infernal Devices: Clockwork Angel"|
Yet another casting from me, this time from Cassandra Clare's "The Infernal Devices: Clockwork Angel." I finished reading this book a few days ago and absolutely loved it. It's a prequel to Clare's "The Mortal Instruments" series, but I have yet to read those, though I plan on doing so in the future. So on to the casting!
Sarah Bolger: Tessa Gray
I first fell in love with Sarah Bolger through her portrayal of Mary Tudor on Showtimes' "The Tudors." She's a cute, sweet little thing and I think she'd be brilliant as the shape-shifting Tessa.
Christian Cooke: Will Herondale
I've loved Christian Cooke in everything I've seen him in so far, namely "Doctor Who," "Robin Hood," and "Demons." He's such a cutie and I think he could pull off the dark and broody Will to perfection.
Max Minghella: James "Jem" Carstairs
I honestly have no idea who this guy is! My original pick for Jem was "Merlin's" Bradley James. Cassandra Clare's description of Jem was a hard one for me to cast. But most recently, Clare released the cover for the next book in the series, "Clockwork Prince," which depicts Jem on the cover. Ah! So now I have a better mental picture of what Clare intended Jem to look like. So I get on Google and type in "young British-Chinese actors," and this Max Minghella popped up a lot. Apparently he was in "The Social Network," which I have yet to watch, grr! But this guy looks really cute and I think could pull off Jem.
Tamsin Egerton: Jessamine Lovelace
The only thing I've seen Tamsin Egerton on currently is Starz's "Camelot." Jessamine is described as bein an absolute beauty, and I think she has the good looks to pull off the beautiful but snobbish Jessamine.
Carey Mulligan: Charlotte Branwell
Carey Mulligan is setting herself up to be the next best thing in Hollywood and the role of Charlotte would be a great fun role for her to play since she does lots of Indie films.
Rupert Grint: Henry Branwell
I think Rupert Grint will forever be Ron Weasley, but I think this role would be perfect for him since Henry is described as being red-haired. Henry's fun and flashy, into "clockwork" and I think Rupert would have a fun time playing this character.
Garett Hedlund: Nate Gray
I love Garett *sigh* He was sexy as Murtagh in "Eragon" and even more sexy as Sam Flynn in "Tron." The role of Nate would be a good one for him to stretch into the field of villainy.
Richard Armitage: The Magister
I feel as though I cast Richard Armitage in practically everything I read. I can't help that the man is sex-on-legs. Anyway, though the Magister appears only briefly (though it turns out he's Axel Mortmain), this would be another great dark and broody role for Mr. Armitage.
Natalie Dormer: Camille Belcourt
Natalie Dormer was MADE to be a vampire! She'd be great as Camille. Natalie has a very seductive appeal that would work great for the role.

|07:37 pm - Markus Zusak's "The Book Thief"---My Dream Casting|
I just finished re-reading Markus Zusak's The Book Thief for the second time last night. Such an amazing story of friendship and the hope in the human race despite the fact that human race is often cruel and heartless.
This book MUST be made into a movie! It's such a powerful story full of interesting characters. So here's my proposed cast list and some reasoning behind my casting:
Liesel Memiger: Emma Watson
Okay, Emma Watson is seriously too old to play the part now as she's in her twenties, but every time I read the book, I see little Emma Watson. In all actuality, whenever a movie is made, it'll probably be an unknown actress somewhere around 13-16 in order to play Liesel as she ages.
Hans Hubermann: Thomas Kretschmann
The man's hot, what can I say? Plus, he's played practically every German character there is, so why not Hans? I think Thomas Kretschmann has the intensity and the voice to pull of Hans completely.
Rosa Hubermann: Helena Bohnam-Carter
Physically, Helena Bohnam-Carter resembles nothing of how Zusak portrays the character. But for me, Helena has the voice and the spunk that I think can pull off the character. Plus, Helena's usually all up for distorting her features (like teeth for instance), so if she wanted to put on a fat suit, she could.
Max Vandenburg: Iddo Goldberg
Max is my FAVORITE character in the whole book. I feel for him every page that he's on and I adore his sweet and innocent relationship with Liesel (I honestly love to imagine that the two end up together and get married. If she was 18, he'd only be in his 30s, so not bad I don't think. Zusak doesn't specifically mention Max's name, but near the end when Liesel is thinking about all the important people in her life, Max isn't even mentioned. A subtle hint? I think so. Plus, I read somewhere else that there was a large migration of Jews to Australia---where Liesel moves to later---so, another coincidence?) I've only see Iddo in a few movies/TV shows where he has pretty small parts, but I really like what I've seen, and I think he could pull off Max's despair and anguish.
Death: Richard Armitage
Ah! Our narrator! Both times I've read The Book Thief, it's always been Richard Armitage as Death. I simply refuse to see someone else cast as Death. Richard has the dramatic dark, pale looks, and the confidence to pull of such an intriguing and mesmerizing character. Even if moviemakers decided to not show a physical representation of Death, I still think Richard's voice alone would be perfect since he does a lot of voiceover work.
Ilsa Hermann: Carice van Houten
I think Ilsa is one of The Book Thief's most interesting characters. We really don't know a thing about her other than she's the Mayor's wife, that her son died, and she likes to wear a bathrobe all the time. But she has a very unique relationship with Liesel throughout the book. I've only seen Carice van Houten in Valkerie, but I think she'd be a great match as Ilsa.

|06:56 pm - Madeline Usher's Tale|
Well, I've most recently finished writing up a proposed novel that I'd love to get published one day. What I need now is mega help in fine-tuning my novel and enriching what's there. Meaning: help with grammar errors, sentence structure, wording, characters, setting, well, anything you can think of. So if you have spare time, please check the link out down below, and I'd really appreciate it forever.
So my novel: it's called "Madeline Usher's Tale," based off of Edgar Allan Poe's short story "The Fall of the House of Usher." I've always wanted to tell Madeline's story since she's a non-existent character sort of.
Anyway, intstead of posting the whole thing here on Livejournal, I've discovered this new site called Wattpad where you can put all your poems, short stories, novels, and even fanfiction. It's such a fun site and gives you lots of options: like creating a cast list and making a mock book cover.
So check out the start of my novel here http://www.wattpad.com/1138856-author%27s-note
I start off with a very short Author's Note, then a brief Introduction from Madeline, and then 11 chapters. So it is "done" in terms of havin a beginning, middle and end.
Oh, and check out this freaking awesome book cover my sister made for me. Maybe that'll get you futher excited. And yes, that's Richard Armitage as Roderick Usher and Katie McGrath as Madeline Usher:

Massively bored today!
Are you a lover of books? Do you love to create your own dream casts? I freaking LOVE casting for my favorite books. So something new I'm thinking about doing is casting for my favorite books---maybe updating either every day or a couple times a week.
And here's a site I'm totally addicted to: www.storycasting.com where you basically cast your fave books. Very addicting site.
So my first dream casting:
"The Secret History of the Pink Carnation" by Lauren Willig

|07:14 pm - Guy & Marian: Taking Over Me|
Hey guys! Sorry for being absent for, like, well, forever. I've decided to delete all my posts on this channel cuz I honestly just didn't like them. Sorry for those who liked my writings---if anyone even still remembers them, haha! I just really wanted to start over.
Anyway, here is the second part to my "Soulmates Never Die" video. As a refresher: future Guy had dreams about Marian, and then later went nuts and started seeing "Marian" everywhere." Well, in that part, I didn't have any type of access to Lucy Griffiths clips so "Marian" ended up being another woman who wasn't really Marian. So in this second part, I tell the reincarnation theory through "Marian's" eyes and refinding "Guy." And this time I used clips from Lucy Griffiths "The Little House" and also "Spooks" with Richard Armitage again. So enjoy!
Also, question: I've been toiling with the idea of writing a very short fanfic with this Guy/Marian reincarnation theory. Is anyone interested?
