I’m not going to review this series right now. I’ll get to it, but it’s another one that I feel I have to put more heart into in order to do it justice. It’s amazing, and I can’t just blurp out a review because I want to fill some blog space.
BUT — I can blurp out some casting ideas. So here’s me. Blurping.
First and foremost — Kate. What’s she like? Well, she’s striking, athletic, intense. She’s got long, dark hair. She kicks ass; it’s her raison d’être.
I’ve had such a hard time coming up with someone for Kate, but then I saw the execrable Batman vs Superman and Gal Gadot stole the movie as Wonder Woman. I looked at her and immediately thought she’d be wonderful as Kate Daniels. Of course, already being Wonder Woman, she probably wouldn’t accept another kick ass female part, but she’s my Head Kate from now on.
Only Kate would never wear those earrings. It’s bad enough she’s got long hair that can be pulled out of her head in a fight, she doesn’t need her earlobes shredded as well.
Now on to Curran. What’s he like? Well, he’s powerful, only about 5’10” or 5’11”, but he seems bigger because of his intensity. He’s got short, blond hair. Kate often refers to him as a psychopath.
I used to picture young Dolph Lundgren for Curran, but Lundgren is way too tall. Now I picture Charlie Hunnam.
He’s got a stick! He’s gonna hit somebody!
Now I feel I really need to cast Andrea. She’s a little bit of a tough find because Andrea is a small, blond woman who’s kind of cute/pretty but is extremely deadly. But I’ll give it a shot.
And so I chose Dakota Fanning. I kept seeing her name pop up as I searched, but I dismissed her until I saw this picture. This is a good look for Andrea, I think.
Beautiful, but older than her years in that picture. That’s Andrea. Heck, that’s pretty much all the characters in this series.
I’ll have to come back and do some more casting tomorrow. There are a lot of characters and I’m too tired to manage it right now.
I love the photos of Kate and Curran above. She looks like she’s about to skewer him with a wisecrack for his tough-guy-with-a-stick routine. Ha!
