Hola. I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who supported me last week through a crazy week of posting excerpts of my manuscripts. Your reactions and comments about my work and ideas, inspired me to plow forward on my quest toward publication.
One interesting thing that did occur; so many people suggested actors to play different roles. That is a game I often play with my family.
When I wrote The Executioner’s Diary, I thought of a younger Antonio Banderas as the perfect actor to play the role of a Cuban refugee turned hit man. I once mailed him and his representatives a copy of my screenplay; but never heard back from them.
The role of Veyda in Paradox was written for Kate Beckinsale. With the few remaining humans accepting their dismal fate; Veyda is the tough soldier who refuses to believe humanity will become extinct. After watching her gritty performance in Underworld, I wanted Kate Beckinsale as my female lead. (It would also provide Lonely Author the opportunity to meet one of his favorite actresses. Oh, God, she is so hot. Hey a chimp can dream can’t he?)
So, I ask you.
What actor /actress would play YOU in the movie about your life?
