Dream Cast

This post is linked with: Booking Through, Thursday 13 

"And while we’re thinking about books converted to tv/movies. Do you ever sit and wonder who could be cast as your favorite characters? (Please feel free to give examples!)
What actors do you think have done particularly excellent jobs with some of your favorite characters?"
Cleopatra VII of Dan Brown's latest thriller; if they're converting Inferno to film soon- I wonder how would a younger version of Maggie Smith do. A complicated fancy but it's free to wish.

Richard Harris (HP1 & 2) and Michael Gambon (HP3-6) were perfect for their role as Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore.

They couldn't have chosen a better actor than Leonardio di Caprio as Jay Gatsby in the recent The Great Gatsby.

Jacob Black of the Twilight series was played quite well by Taylor Lautner. I don't mind that he is not as tall as his book character. Taylor is the best shape shifter ever and he played Jacob very well I was in love with him for months.

Thursday 13: Random bookish photos in my files

1. the latest Dan Brown thriller

2. I piled these last Christmas to make a tree out of them

3. got to watch the film first; went straight to the bookstore for the reading experience

4. at my fave second-hand bookshop: deciding which ones to check out

5. writing a research-reflective note on a page of a Jane Austen book

6. I heard my mother mutter quietly while watching me bid goodbye to these books I bought after a week-long vacation at home, "Anastasia and her latest loot.'

7. Advertising Management books, Business Management Faculty office (my playground)

8. this boardroom at work teems with e-books
9. Kinokuniya search machine; looks like the one that replaced the note cards

10. a book filled with color drawing of fairies by Mary Cicely Barker

11. some of those books I bought from Logos Hope

12. normal state of the bed

13. playing with free photo background online


  1. And they say books will die. There are books everywhere :)
    I'm usually disappointed with books made into movies - if I've read the book prior, that is. Comparisons never go well.

    1. Oh no, not in my world. Yes to books everywhere! I used to be disappointed with movies from books, but since then I have decided to just look at the movie separately from the book.

  2. I agree with you on Dumbledore. I haven't seen the Great Gatsby yet, but I would have thought Leonardo DiCaprio to be a perfect pick.

  3. Surrounded by books. Just like me.

  4. Richard Harris was perfectly cast as Dumbledore it still hurts my heart that he died.

    My BTT

  5. I forgot to mention Richard Harris and Michael Gambon as Albus Dumbledore for the Harry Potter series. Thanks for sharing! Here's my BTT.

  9. I just saw The King's Speech and I loved it. I bet the book is good.

  10. A bookish Christmas tree is too cool. I love #10

  11. I think the cast of the new Star Trek series is spot on in regards to casting.
