What writer doesn’t dream of seeing his characters jump off the page and on to the big screen? I certainly do! With ON TENTERHOOKS, I saw some of my main characters from the beginning of the writing process as a certain actor or actress. Others were amalgamations of several different actors or people I have known. This week I received a special treat – a reader sent me her dream cast for the movie adaptation. I don’t watch TV, so I had to go Google some of these people. I think she has some great ideas:
- Bradley Cooper as Steve
- Tyler Perry as Martin
- Dakota Fanning as Abby
- Uma Thurman as Veronica
- Jeff Bridges as Biker
And there is only one actor that could play Preacher and do it justice, Willem Dafoe.
In the dreams and flashbacks …..
- Sigourney Weaver as Helen
- Piper Pirabo as Julie (for such a small part, she could take a break from her TV show)
- Chord Overstreet as Zack (he could take a short break from Glee)
- Gabrielle Union as Maggie
