*takes a broom, put on a Run Lola Run song and prepares to undust the topic*
Soo. I mentioned in my introducing post that I've been dreaming about adapting the book since I'm about 10/11. Which means I've got a lot of ideas, especially about the cast, so I'll do it short - name of character, actor/actress, little explanation then move on -, otherwise the post will be awfully long x)
Artemis - Unknown
To me, the best pick for Artemis would be a young, talented and unknown actor. It will sting the fans' curiosity, and maybe launch a career.
Holly - Ellen Page
Already explained in the topic dedicated to Holly, but I put on the photo back, because it's so damn hot *O*
If she doesn't fit (which is very unlikely because she's a perfect actress), maybe Franka Potente from . Badass, cute and charismatic, the perfect combination =3
Butler - Bruce Willis
Jason Statham is most likely to be picked as he's mentioned in a lot of articles, but personally I think Bruce Willis would be better. He's a bit older, and looks more experienced (he is indeed by the way) and mature, it would be better even though the character is supposed to be quite young (about thirty I think), he has been through a lot.
Opal Koboi - Christina Ricci
My second favourite actress. She just has the perfect look for an evil machiavelic pixie (no offense, it's a compliment), just look at any picture, you can just draw pointy ears about her hair :D
Angeline - Natalie Portman
She might look a bit too young, but to me it's still the best : she can portray a character as sunny and tender as also fragile and insane - best example being this movie which convinced everybody that every ballet dancer was a schizophrenic psychopath called Black Swan.
Commander Root - Robert De Niro
No need to explain. Just look at the picture, he even as the cigare !
Vinyaya - Jodie Foster
My third favourite actress ! No need to explain either, she's just one of the best actress ever. Plus that would be fun to see her with De Niro again after Taxi Driver :D
Juliet - Elle Fanning
Dakota's little sister, just as talented but with something more than makes me like her better, no idea what.
Minerva - Garance le Guillermic
She's maybe a bit old now, but anyway, if they don't pick a French actress to play Minerva, I'll kidnap a warlock demon from another dimension just to turn them into giant steacks then throw them to the lions.
Foaly - Either Benedict Cumberbatch or Stephen Merchant
Because Cumberbatch is a good actor, but Stephen Merchant, who voiced Portal 2's best character, Wheatley, might be very funny.
