Follow Friday - Casting my current read

Follow Friday is a feature created by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  It's a fun blog hop where you meet other book bloggers and find people to follow.
Activity! Dream cast your current read.
Well darn it. Did you have to assign such a difficult task?  Well I just started The Disreputable History of Franke Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart but I have no real impression of the main characters yet.  So we're going to have to go with my audiobook--Hammered by Kevin Hearne.

This is equally hard.  It's hard to imagine an Atticus as sexy as the Atticus in my head.  This is one of my biggest fictional crushes.  I mean look at the cover model (His idenity is unknown.  All I've managed to learn is that he's not actually a red-head but a blonde. Sadness I know.).

Come on how am I suppose to top that?  I'm googling and googling for something remotely workable.  Most seem to be older or the goofy best friend type. Most of the attractive redheads I find are slightly too old.  Nevermind that Atticus is really ancient (no, really). He's supposed to look 21.  Though I've seen yummy redheaded men in real life apparently attractive redheaded men aren't the ones who get famous. So I'm not undercutting Atticus by choosing someone unworthy of being him.

However Granuaile I can cast easily.  Mainly because I am watching Dr. Who on Netflix and Karen Gilliam who plays Amy Pond is amazing.  I'm fairly certain even though Granuaile has Irish history (Karen is Scottish for the record) she'd need to master an American accent.  But cute, sexy, long-legs and the type of girl who gets great tips working at the local Irish pub.  Yep she can do that.

I think she's pretty much adorable. Picture from here.   Of coures i have to find a picture for potentially THE MOST IMPORTANT CHARACTER - Oberon the Irish Wolfhound.  He is one of my favorite talking dogs.  He's smarter than your average pup but totally distractible by sausage and french poodles.   Picture found on this tumblr where there is more adorableness.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hammered sounds like it would be right up my alley. I'm going to have to check it out.

But, I do have to say that when I hear the name Atticus, all I can think of is Gregory Peck, lol.

Thanks for stopping by my post! I've not read the book, but the cover model's hair immediately made me think of Alex Pettyfor (his floppy hair I Am Number Four days). You also get major points for having that adorable dog in your post haha.

Happy weekend!

Amy @ Happily Reading Ever After said...

Aww, the dog is sooo cute.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Kristy Berridge said...

Well, I gotta say I thought the picture in 'Hammered' was Alex Pettyfer for a while there, but then you mentioned the red hair. Anyway, thanks for stopping by my blog, I just popped over to follow you back.

It is difficult finding a ginger isn't it! I'm glad to see I wasn't the only one having trouble.

Karen definitely seems a perfect choice :)
