My Dream Cast

Inspired by Lisa Shearin and Raven, I've decided to put up my dream cast for some of the characters in Forging a Legend.

Abriel - Angela Bassett

Ok, Angela Bassett is probably way too beautiful to play Abriel, but I'd want her anyway! Look at those arms! She'd be perfect. Plus she's got great screen presence. She was the only reason I liked the movie, Strange Days and she'd make a kick-ass Abriel.

Verit - Val Kilmer

Dye his hair black and he'd make a great god of Truth. He's got that ability to pull off a hugely conceited character, as evidenced in Top Gun and Willow.

Thesk - The Rock

For another godly character, Thesk, the God-King of the city-state that bears his name, I'd want The Rock. He already looks like a god in this photo, and we know he makes a great villain.

I'll have to think some more about the other characters. For the few of you who has read it all the way through, I need a buff white guy (Danor), a fit white guy (Loqui), a teenage brown-skinned boy (Rendell), two fit brown-skinned guys (Yevin and Korzit), and a brown-skinned guy and girl with an ordinary build (Deverno and Ysande).


  1. You know I actually did this when I was asked for my thoughts on cover art for my upcoming book, TOUCH OF FIRE.

    Along with a blurb and a description of the characters, I also sent the art department pictures of various actors who could serve as inspiration when they design the cover. I can't wait to see what they come up with.

  2. Yes, Kilmer as a god of truth is no stretch at all.

    This is fun!

  3. Maria, that sounds VERY exciting and fun!

    Raven, I think so too. I'm already getting ready for the next post!

  4. Wow, Raven; we must have commented at the same time. Yes, it was Angela Bassett I was thinking of!

  5. Both Val and the Rock are pretty hot, I'll admit. Never knew you liked the hunks.

    Good luck with it. -C

  6. Yup. I like hunks as much as the next girl. And you've got to have a hunk to play a god.

  7. What a fun idea! Very yummy too. :)
