   Many things to talk about today!  First off, I'd like to let you know that Cleo's book is coming along. I'm even tempted to share the first chapter with you. Let me think about it . . .  Also, I wanted to let you know that Dreaming of Ivy is now available in paperback! Yeah, really. Here's the link.  But mostly, I just wanted to play - Cast that Movie! Come on, you know it's fun.

   But it can be a lot of work, so I'm going to need your help. On my last trilogy, you guys kind of outdid me. I'm a big enough person to admit it. My casting skills are not what they should be, but I will do my best. 

   To begin. Falling for Rayne. Now Rayne is one of my favorite characters, she's smart, talented yet kind of feisty too. I'm thinking Emilia Clarke - what do you think? Yes? No? Am I off on this one? (I personally think I nailed it)

   So now Garrett, this one is easy. And yes, I watched a little soccer this summer. No judging please. May I introduce you to Olivier Giroud.You might recognize him from France's soccer team.

I'm pretty sure I got Ivy right too. Victoria Justice anyone?

 For Becket, the only guy I could imagine in my head was Charlie Hunnam. 

Cleo was easy too. Hello - Brooklyn Decker?

Now, I don't want to ruin Cleo's story for you. There are two guys she might end up with. Tai Matafeo or Asher Murphy. So I'll cast both for you.  
Here's my idea of Tai: Sonny Bill Williams (Yes, he's an actual Rugby player)

 And last, but not least, our beloved Asher Murphy :) Or as you might know him as, Mats Hummels from Germany's Soccer team. Yeah, sorry. The World Cup is over. I'll stop now. (maybe)

   So how did I do? Agree? Disagree? Show me who you would cast. We'll have a little competition to see who wins.

I love who you picked for Tai and Cleo, those two would be beautiful together. I don't know if that can be topped. Makes me want to read their story even more now. (I'm on Team Tai, obviously.) :)

Thanks! And I'm glad you're on team Tai, but you know how much I love redeeming my bad boys. So you never know . . .

I pictured Garret as a short haired Ian Somerhalder and Rayne as Evangeline Lily, mostly because of her green eyes. You're on a soccer kick (no pun intended), I'm on a Lost kick. I totally agree with your Cleo and Tai.

Shannon said...

Brianne - I LOVE Evangeline Lilly! Of course I'm a huge Hobbit fan too. I used to be into Lost until I got totally lost and couldn't follow the story :) But thanks for backing me up on Tai and Cleo. I've had some people completely disagree on Tai.

Kath said...

Hmm, I do know how you like to redeem the bad boys. I guess I'll have to try and keep an open mind. I've just been on Team Tai since he was introduced in Tough Love (I think that was the one).

Also, I used to LOVE Lost. I was always a little confused about what was going on, but I just loved how original it was and the cast was fun. I liked it up until the last hour of the entire series. I HATED the finale and how they explained everything. I'm still confused about it actually. :)

I want Tai since I don't think highly of Asher now. I think you might have Asher in your next series if you don't have him end up with Cleo. Nevertheless, I can't wait for the book!
