Dreamcasting for Hear Me When the Sun Goes Down

It’s time for a new dream casting post since I have a new Forged Bloodlines book out. As you know, I ALWAYS cast these suckers in my head when I’m in the process of writing, so I thought I’d share my picks for how I see the characters in my head. I’ll include Bishop, Rob and Anja as a refresher, but you can see the rest of the cast from my previous dreamcasting posts here:

Wake Me When the Sun Goes Down
Find Me When the Sun Goes Down
Miss Me When the Sun Goes Down
Follow Me When the Sun Goes Down

Anja Evans: Teresa Palmer – So I hadn’t cast a female lead as a blonde before, but since it went with the Viking ancestry link for this series, I decided to try something new. I like Teresa Palmer because she can play innocence well, but you get the feeling like she could seriously kick a little ass once she comes into her own. (see her with a shotgun in Warm Bodies)

Rob: Jason Statham – Rob is a character I borrowed from my True Blood fanfic, and I pictured him as Handsome Rob from The Italian Job at the time and the name just stuck. He looks like he could hold his own against a vampire and I just love his voice with the accent.

Bishop: Chris Evans – Before I even nailed down this character I had Chris Evans in mind, as he looks in the movie Push, which is a little rough around the edges, but definitely formidable. He’s got that ability to play tough, but with a vulnerability that makes him relatable. Plus, he’s so damn pretty to look at.

Corazon: Michelle Rodriguez – One of the few women I know who can scare the crap out of you with a single flat stare. She would be perfect to play the prickly Order member.

Amunet: Morena Baccarin – Okay, so I know she’s Brazillian born and of Italian descent (not Egyptian), but I still think she could pull off Amunet’s exotic sensuality and give Anja something to be jealous over.

Chad: Josh Hartnett – Yep, Chad makes his way back into the series though not in the way you might think. I wanted someone who could be strong and rough around the edges, but pretty underneath.

The Council:

Cordelia: Carla Gugino – because she looks so capable and strong but still sexy, it’s easy to picture her as a vampire who’s been around for a while.

Holt: Mark Strong – because he is in every movie.

Anders: Ron Glass – He just feels wise to me. Okay, so that’s probably just because of Firefly, but whatever.

Powell: Billy Burke – I first liked him as Bella’s dad and then even more in Revolution.

Durand: Michael Rosenbaum – Okay, I admit I had a total crush on Lex Luthor. Can you just see him as a powerful vampire?
