#026 Follow & Feature: Who Would You Cast In A Movie or TV Series?

FOLLOW ME FRIDAYHappy Follow and Feature, everyone! The long and short of it, life is crazy and reading is my life, basically. Go visit Parajunkee's View or Allison Can Read, to get the details on how to follow and have fun with everyone else. It's all about meeting new people, finding new blogs to follow, and basically just having a lot of fun.

This week the two awesome features are Mercurial Musings and Owl Tell You All About ItThese two girls are just as awesomesauce as their blogs, so definitely show them some love! :D


THE QUESTION OF THE WEEK


"What book would you love to see made into a movie or television show and do you have actors/actresses in mind to play the main characters?"


THE CHEMICAL GARDEN TRILOGY BY LAUREN DESTEFANO I don't usually like to see books adapted to film or become a television show. But, if I had to choose a series or book to be made into a movie, it would have to be Wither by Lauren deStefano. It would be amazing to see the dark gothic twisted carnivals, filled with their girls in glitter, and rusty merry-go-rounds. Plus, the gritty storyline, the danger, and seeing Rhine and Gabriel breaking out of the mansion and then being on the run always having to look over their shoulders and make life altering decisions, would be epic.

CLEMENCE POESY AS RHINE ELLERYClemence Poesy is the only uniquely beautiful and gifted actress, that I can honestly see taking on the role of Rhine Ellery. She has such a strange alluring beauty all her own, that I can see her pulling off overwhelming emotions such as fear, lonliness, and total despair.

She is such a wonderfully gifted and talented actress, that I were going to cast anyone in a movie of these novels, it would definitely be her. I just simply haven't found anyone quite as intriguing enough, unless it would be Amanda Seyfried, who is equally as stunning and beautiful.



THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS/INFERNAL DEVICES BY CASSANDRA CLAREI would definitely love to see Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instrument series turned into a movie. It's such an interesting other-world, downworld full of intriguing character's, dangerous peril, and shiny magic. Emphasis on the "shiny". I'm not exactly sure who I would cast as Clary, she's a bit of a hard one for me. Because, all of the younger actresses that I've looked at so far, have been well...a little too young and fresh faced. Plus, I don't want to go over a certain age limit, because I want her to appear the ass-kicking awesomely fierce character that she is.

ADAM LAMBERT AS MAGNUS BANEBut, I do know who I would cast as the super shiny amazing Magnus Bane. There is only one person who I've always had in mind, who could ever really do this truly fantastic character justice...Adam Lambert. Oh, yes! My boy. Or well...both of "my boys" kind of melted into one. Tell me you can see this. You know you can, right?! lol. Gah! They're both so pretty.

❝Excerpt from City of Glass❞

page 168

Magnus looked amused. "I was surprised when I got Sebastian's message this morning," he said. "Saying he was doing you a favor, no less. How did you wind up meeting him?"

"He's a cousin of some friends of the Lightwoods or something. He's nice, I promise."

"Nice, bah. He's gorgeous." Magnus gazed dreamily in his direction. "You should leave him here. I could hang hats on him and things."

"No. You can't have him."

"Why not? Do you like him?" Magnus's eyes gleamed. "He seems to like you. I saw him going for your hand out there like a squirrel diving for a peanut."





❝Hopping Through?!❞

  3. I haven't read Wither, but the way you describe it, seems like it'd be a great movie! At least for the scenery :)

  4. You should definitely give the Chemical Garden trilogy a read, when you're able to. The imagery in the book is just as stunning, as the development of the character's, the depth of plot, and just the writing in general. Lauren DeStefano is simply amazing and definitely one of my favorite author's discovered within the last year. :)

    Thanks, so much for stopping by the blog and for the follow. I hope you have an awesome weekend!

    Niiice! According to IMDB The Mortal Instruments is going to be a movie. The first book is my guess! Not sure of any explicit details, only that it's a movie in progress!

    Here's my Hops

  14. Yeah, I think I've heard somewhere that the rights for TMI have been optioned, so we'll see. I'm a little worried about who they might choose to cast as Magnus Bane, since he is my favorite character. rotfl. I just really want them to do him justice. :)

    Aw, thank you so much for stopping by the blog. I hope you have such a fantastic weekend. :)

  15. I've really enjoyed visiting your blog and checking out your Feature & Follow. Thank you, so much for the follow. I love meeting new bloggers and getting to know them. 

    Wither/Fever, would definitely make fantastic movies or television series. I think I'd be leaning towards movie though, for each of them. :)

    Happy reading and I hope your weekend is awesome.

  16. YOU HAVE TO READ WITHER.

    It's really that good, true facts. *g* I can't see anyone else as Magnus Bane, honestly. Since the movie has already been optioned, I'm a little scared at who they might choose to play him. I really hope they do him justice, unlike some of the actors/actresses they've chosen for previous books to film/tv. 

    Oh, I love your blog sfm. I'll definitely be back to visit more often. Yay! Thanks for follow via Twitter. Excited. :)

  17. Magnus is such a super shiny fantastic character with so much flare and colorful personality. I must check out the casting they've chosen for TMI, because I'm a little nervous to tell you the truth. 

    Haha, Wither/Fever was the first that came to mine. :)

    Thank you, so much for stopping by the blog and following. Can't wait to get to know you. Happy Friday!

  22. Oh yeah, I think they've already cast Clary, Jace, and a couple of other's. I'm a little nervous about who they'll be choosing for Magnus, since he's my favorite. But, we'll see if it's even remotely as awesome as Adam Lambert would be in the part. lol. I think it is actually the first book, City of Bones, I seem to remember hearing some rumblings about it somewhere. :)

    Thank you, so much for stopping by the blog. Will definitely be hopping back through to your awesome blog, to check your Hops later today! 

    Have a fantastic weekend!

  28. Interesting choices. I was thinking of adding Wither to my answer as well, but it didn't stick nearly as much as some other novels.
