    You totally had me until Alan Jackson!!! He. Cannot. Be. On. The. Dark. Side.

    At first, I was thinking Nicholas Hoult would be great for Jake, but Thomas Dekker is perfect! I think this would be an awesome cast!

  • Comment by Shan — September 13, 2013 @ 8:18 am

    Ha! Really, Nancy? I’ve always thought Alan Jackson had an evil glint behind that mustache. 😉

  • Comment by Cindy McCord — September 13, 2013 @ 8:26 am

    I agree with Nancy. Don’t see Alan Jackson in that role.

    Not sure about Alex O’Loughlin as Canaan either. I always pictured him as a bigger man.

    Maka is perfect though.

  • Comment by Laken — September 13, 2013 @ 8:31 am

    Oh my! Thomas Dekker, Matt Bomer and Sam Witwer are PERFECT!!

  • Comment by Sarah Penner — September 13, 2013 @ 8:32 am

    Love it! Especially Marco, Canaan, Michael, Damien and the Prince. They were perfect! Hope that one day I get to watch this movie!

  • Comment by Laken — September 13, 2013 @ 8:32 am

    If not them..then I’d throw in Jensen Ackles, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley.

  • Comment by Lisa Hall-Wilson — September 13, 2013 @ 8:40 am

    You had me at Chris Hemsworth 😀

  • Comment by Harmony — September 13, 2013 @ 8:49 am

    Personally I pictured Brielle more of a brunette and Elle Fanning to me seems to young. And someone who is a bit older. Alan Jackson as Javan doesn’t seem right. in his picture there he just seems to nice for me. For Damien I pictured some who looks a little meaner and taller and a bit more handsome. ha but otherwise its great! hope this becomes true someday!

  • Comment by Sana — September 13, 2013 @ 8:57 am

    I think the cast is awesome and I so much want it to be real. I guess you’re already planning a movie. 😀

  • Comment by Charity Kehl — September 13, 2013 @ 9:07 am

    I think it looks like you have a great cast with a mix of upcomers and well-knowns…as for how well they fit the parts you’ve cast them, well, I will need you to send me that trilogy to read and then I can let you know! 😀

  • Comment by Meredith — September 13, 2013 @ 9:08 am

    Not quite how I pictured Jake. My first thought was a young Dean Cain type. Your Matt could even be Jake. Lol. Dekker seems a bit (for lack of a better word) wimpy to me.

  • Comment by Britney W — September 13, 2013 @ 9:21 am

    I love it! Not at all how I pictured Javan, but then again I’ve met Alan Jackson in person so … yea, anyway. Great cast!

  • Comment by Shan — September 13, 2013 @ 9:29 am

    I LOVE that everyone has such different ideas about casting! Just proves that once the story is out of my hands, it’s yours as much as it’s mine. Imagine them all as you wish, friends and keep your choices coming! I love reading them.

    On my choice for Brielle, I agree that Elle Fanning is probably a bit young right now, BUT by the time we convince a studio to make the movies, she should be just the right age! 😉

    And Javan! I love the chaos here. Okay, so when I was drafting Javan–WAY back when he first appeared in Angel Eyes–I just knew I wanted him to be a super tall Marlboro man. Maybe cause I’m scared of cigarettes, I don’t know, but Alan Jackson reminds me of those Marlboro cowboy ads. I do agree that Alan doesn’t look all THAT evil, so I’m definitely open to suggestions. Who would you cast?

  • Comment by Hannah Peasha — September 13, 2013 @ 10:01 am

    Wow. I love seeing the dream cast! …but now I’m sad that it isn’t a movie that I can watch right now 🙁 I think we need to make some calls! Anyone have a Hollywood producers phone number? 😉

  • Comment by Sue Barney — September 13, 2013 @ 1:19 pm

    Im Loving the Dream cast! Especially the Angel picks….swoon lol The only one I would change is Alan Jackson and I would replace him with Taylor Lautner just so he has that tall dark and handsome thing goin on 😉 Thx for the Awesome giveaway! Really hoping to win would definitely be thrilled if I did 🙂

  • Comment by The Book Addicted Girl — September 13, 2013 @ 2:05 pm

    Oh brilliant cast!! Chris Hemsworth is good in anything. 😉 Admittedly I haven’t had the chance to read the book yet, but I’ll definitely have to and see if I agree with everyone!! 😀

  • Comment by Christy K. — September 13, 2013 @ 2:10 pm

    I love the cast, except for Alan Jackson and possibly Brielle. I’m not sure who I’d pick in place of Aland Jackson, but for Brielle, I pictured her a lot differently. I can’t put my finger on it though…probably why I’m not a casting director lol.

  • Comment by Stephanie Morris (ochoa) — September 13, 2013 @ 2:17 pm

    Scott Patterson is who i picture when i read!!! and Alexis Bledel and milo ventimiglia totally works. You know i kinda pictured virtue as someone…i don’t know…bigger i guess and kinda buff. lol. Would be so awesome if these were movies!! Oh and as silly as it is I totally picture myself as kaylee. =D

  • Comment by Dorena — September 13, 2013 @ 2:59 pm

    Great choices for your dream cast. I like Alex O’Loughlin and Alan Jackson.

  • Comment by Alyssa — September 13, 2013 @ 3:07 pm

    This is awesome. Love everyone you’ve cast. They all look the part.

  • Comment by Cait D — September 13, 2013 @ 4:28 pm

    What a super cool cast! Love it!

  • Comment by Jolene A — September 13, 2013 @ 4:58 pm

    I love your dream cast! They seem spot on to me 🙂 Thanks for the amazing giveaway and chance to win

  • Comment by Margay — September 14, 2013 @ 6:27 am

    I love your dream cast! I think it’s perfect.

  • Comment by Nancy — September 14, 2013 @ 11:23 am

    Finally came to me. Josh Holloway for Javan. What do you think?

  • Comment by Jenisa L — September 14, 2013 @ 2:24 pm

    I always love to find the perfect ‘real life people’ for the characters in the books I read. I love doing this because it lets me imagine who the characters look like in my mind as I read what their thoughts and feelings are. It makes the books seem all the more real! I think what you chose was absolutely brilliant! I imagined Brielle a little more different, but otherwise, I think it is perfect! 🙂

  • Comment by jill hoke — September 14, 2013 @ 2:43 pm

    I would pretty much go to any movie with Chris Helmsworth in it.

  • Comment by Amber M — September 14, 2013 @ 8:26 pm

    I really love your dream cast! I really think they fit perfectly!! 🙂

  • Comment by Lauren — September 15, 2013 @ 2:05 pm

    Elle Fanning would make the perfect Brielle . . . BUT Alan Jackson cannot be evil!!!! 😉 Lol, I’m too much of a country music fan for my own good.

  • Comment by Sherri Jones — September 15, 2013 @ 11:25 pm

    Works for me esp Keith.

  • Comment by Elizabeth — September 17, 2013 @ 11:46 am

    Totally awesome! Great comparison! Chris Hemsworth would be an awesome Michael!

  • Comment by Shan — September 18, 2013 @ 8:07 am

    Okay, so! Nancy is voting for Josh Holloway as Javan and I think I agree. He’s kind of perfect. Got the whole Marlboro man thing going on, that evil glint in his eye, and he’s NOT Alan Jackson. Whatcha think? https://www.google.com/search?q=josh+holloway&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&channel=fflb&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hl=en&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=q8A5Uo3pBMHCqAGg84CICQ#channel=fflb&hl=en&q=josh+holloway&rls=org.mozilla:en-US%3Aofficial&tbm=isch&um=1&imgdii=_

  • Comment by Rachel Kasperson — September 19, 2013 @ 10:17 am

    I love the dream cast. This is probably the most spot on casting I have ever seen for a book.

  • Comment by Gabby — September 20, 2013 @ 10:43 am

    You must be a Gilmore Girls fan! hehe Me too! Love the dream cast!! Great pics. I never thought of her, but Elle Fanning is absolutely perfect for Brielle! :o)

  • Comment by chad c — September 20, 2013 @ 10:45 am

    I think it’s an awesome cast. I wouldn’t change a thing.

  • Comment by Donna — September 20, 2013 @ 11:09 am

    Oh, yes please. I couldn’t have picked anybody better than who you chose. Let’s bring Brielle and Jake to the big screen now.Ahhhhh….

  • Comment by Alicia — September 20, 2013 @ 11:24 am

    Confession time. I haven’t read the series yet!! I’m sorry I’m sorry. I have the first two books and haven’t read them yet. AHHH!!!! I haven’t read really anything in the past 7 months since having baby #3 and I miss reading terribly. I swear that I will read this series as soon as I can and will report back regarding this casting. Although what you have here makes me want to read it right this second!!

  • Comment by Sarah k — September 20, 2013 @ 12:01 pm

    I like your dream casting choices:)

  • Comment by Alyssa Faith — September 20, 2013 @ 5:36 pm

    You had me until Alan Jackson! Don’t see Alan playing a bad guy! But I really love Alex O’Loughlin, especially in Hawaii 5-O!

  • Comment by Kaitlin — December 21, 2014 @ 6:15 pm

    Hmm…I see Alexis Blendel, Milo Ventimiglia, and Scott Peterson. Did you watch Gilmore Girls??
