Who would play my characters in the movie?

I held an small contest on Facebook and through my newsletter asking this question.

Here are some of the answers (with pictures!) The winner of the contest (drawn randomly by my kid) is at the bottom of the post!

First, my own ideas for Donovan and Gabriella:

Elisabetta Canalis

Colin Farrell

For BLESSED ARE THE MEEK – Annalisa and Mayor Grant

Kimberly Guilfoyle

Mayor Gavin Newsom

Father Liam (played by my friend and the inspiration for the character, Father Seamus)

Kristin Boldon saw these women potentially cast as Gabriella: (she says this: Marisa Tomei might be a decade too old, but I can absolutely see this)

Rebecca Hall

Rose Byrne

Molly McConville saw Jason Statham as Donovan:

Sara Steffens GG = Younger Sandra Bullock with her original nose? (I dug up this picture thinking it might be what Sara had in mind. Is this with her original nose?)

Sandra Bullock

“Someone said Keifer Sutherland, but no way. I see Jack as much more of a skinny, evil Florida-type, ala Chris Cooper in Adaptation:

Siri Edwards:
I pictured James Spader in your novels . . but I am torn as to whether he should be behind bars or in front of them. Dang! But it’s James Spader for the movie for SURE! oh, and the girl from Gilmore Girls, Lorelai, as the crime writer I think. I know that is waaay off, but that’s how I saw it when I read it! ­čÖé Definitely stick with James. That’s safe. Gilmore Girls taking to the streets may be way too much!

(Okay I love this. James Spader can play two roles! Older as Jack, younger as Donovan! Ha!)

Younger James Spader
