What I Dream About


Nope, it’s not a post about what I dream about at night. I’d have to change the rating of my blog and hand out Xanaxto all my friends who read my blog before I delve into that world! It’s not for the faint of heart. No, this post is just a little something in need to get off my chest. No, it’s not a confessional post about what I did with your sister in high school! Sheesh, would you let me finish. This post is simply my VERY BEST CASE SCENARIO for what I would like to see happen with Origins and the Demonkin series.

You see, I was watching TV last night. I have  tivo. I brought up the guide. LO AND BEHOLD! This is what I saw on the guide and it made me grin.

I knew they hadn’t gone behind my back and secretly turned Origins into a made for television movie. BUT, seeing Origins up on the screen gave me that “what if” feeling. That right there is my dream. To have my book turned into a movie. Of course I’d want a damn cameo. I’d like to be one of the background vampires. You know the ones? A brief screenshot, maybe a line? Then they get either decapitated or have a silver stake shoved through their heart? That would be cool.

Who would I cast as my other characters? Oh, that’s easy. See, I sorta write around movie stars. It’s easier to keep the characters in my head straight.  Want me to share? Okay,  I will.

 

Ashlyn: Would have to be played by none other than Dakota Fanning. She’s the only actress I can see playing her. She’s the right age and build and would probably love playing a non sparkly vamp.

Michaels: Greg Grunberg. Who? Ya. Greg Grunberg. He played an agent in the show Alias. He was also on the show Heroes. Great actor, goofy, funny. Perfect for Michaels

Thompson: Michael Clarke Duncan. You’ll remember him as bear from Armageddon? Yeah. Very Thompsonish.

Reese: Harrison Ford. HEY! It’s my dream, I can have Harrison Ford in it if i want 😛

Cicero: Robert DeNiro. DUH!

Marcel: It would all depend on how he could pull off a french accent, but I’ve got Alex O’Loughlin from Hawaii Five-O in my head

That’s about it.

So, when you wonder what I’ll be dreaming about tonight, it will be production sets and movie deals.

Dream Dangerously.

    Excellent casting ideas. I loved Michael Clarke Duncan in “The Green Mile”.

    One thing about that screen shot, though. Did it bother you to see it on the same page with Charlie Sheen? Maybe he could be Victim No. 1 in the movie version. Off him very early and in some particularly nasty way. Now, that could be a dream come true.

    Hey Sean,
    I’ve wanted to tell you this ever since we first met on facebook, and this seems like the perfect time since you’ve told us how your characters look in your mind.
    YOU, my friend are almost exactly how I’ve pictured one of my characters in my vampire novel. (now don’t get all dewy-eyed, because he is not one of the good guys! His main goal in life is to become the next vampire regent, and he doesn’t care what he has to do to get that title. (his name is Rohan) He pops into the story several times just to create havoc and even though he is not in every chapter, he is one of those guys we all love to hate!)
    I’ll tell you what: if my book ever gets made into a movie (hehe) YOU can play his part! How awesome would that be?!!?
    Sharon 🙂

      That would be AWESOME. I suck at acting, but i bet i could play a good bad guy. When is your book out, I’ll have to read it.

        I am in the process of editing my book now and hope to begin sending out query letters soon. I’m also writing the sequel so that should keep me plenty busy during the “waiting” time!
        I’ve posted a few very tiny excerpts along with some photos on my writer’s page, if you’d like to check that out it’s here:

        I am so happy to know that I am not the only one left out there still interested in vampires! I can’t wait to read your book too.

    It is a possibility Sean. Origins is just THAT good!Seeing you decapitated though? Hmm.No no no. That wouldn’t do!lol Your “dream” cast is perfect. I’m going to get back to you on my dream cast! Dakota definitely!She’s purrfect for that role!

      Thanks Eileen! I appreciate it.

    I can see Dakota Fanning playing Ashlyn. She’s a fab little actress with just the right amount of attitude.

    May we all dream dangerously. I think sometimes for writers the movie version comes before the book (at least the film reel in our headspace does anyway), makes it easier to envision who we would have play our characters. (Hugs)Indigo
