Dreamcasting – The Company of Shadows

Hey guys! I know I’ve been late on coming out with this post, but as you know, things have been crazy busy. As usual, I always cast the main characters in my books with who I’d like to see play them in a movie or television show. Sometimes it’s not physically possible (like I’ll see Sam as Jude Law – but from fifteen years ago), but it still helps with how I hear them in my head. Here is who I pictured while writing my new demon hunter series, The Company of Shadows.

Cady Garrett – Lyndsy Fonseca: If you’ve ever watched the show Nikita, you know she can kick serious ass, but I like some of her softer looks from other things like Kickass for Cady. I wanted a girl with streetsmarts, but not completely jaded, and I think Lyndsy can play that touch of innocence.



Ethan Shaw – Jeremy Renner: I went back and forth on this one a lot, and finally settled on a younger Jeremy Renner. He’s got that stoic charisma while still being utterly compelling to watch even in his quiet moments. I think he could convey Ethan’s bewilderment and discomfort at finding Cady thrust into his life and the gradual change as he discovers how much he needs her.

Ian Garrett – Shane West: Can you tell I was watching a lot of Nikita when I was dreaming this one up? I really like the chemistry between him and Lyndsy on the show and I could easily see him taking on the big brother role. He’s got that tough guy exterior down too, and it was easy to picture some of the menacing looks he’d give Ethan for messing with his sister.

Kelli Matthews – Anna Faris: I picture her as she looked in House Bunny, all blond hair and itty bitty clothes. She’s got that bubbly personality down with just a touch of sluttiness, but you still want to hang out with her to see what she’ll do next.



Rikard – Barry Sloane: I dunno, he just popped into mind the first time I conceived of the character. He just looks like an asshole in sheep’s clothing.





Gobi – Matthew Lillard: Cast your mind back to his role in Hackers with the crazy braids and Salvation army style clothes. I know he could bring his unique sense of wacky charm to the role. Seriously though, does this guy ever age?



Dylan Walsh – Johnny Depp: Who else could look completely seedy like a 70′s pimp but still slightly doable?





Asherik – Raul Bova/Jensen Ackles/Tom Hardy: Ah the many faces of Ash! For the dark intensity of his Claudio body, I saw Raul Bova. It’s easy to see how he could get any woman to fall at his feet. As Alex (the guy who approached her in the laundromat) he chose a guy who looked like Jensen Ackles. Good looking, but a little rougher around the edges once he got a better idea what her tastes were like. And as for the dream lover, her perfect man, Cady chose someone like Tom Hardy. He’s not pretty boy handsome, but there’s a quirky charm to his face (I especially like the crooked teeth!), and his musclebound tattoos lend him a sexy, dangerous allure.

So there you have it! I hope you enjoyed seeing these pics, I’d love to hear from you as to how you’ve pictured them while reading it (and I’d love a review on Amazon even more, there are only 2 so far!). I’ll be working on the sequel to this one late in the year.


Feedback is love!
