D.E. Haggerty casts of the characters in the Hollywood adaptation of
Jack Gets His Man
I love thinking about who would play my characters in a Hollywood adaption of Jack Gets His Man. Of course it’s exciting to imagine one of my books being adapted into a Hollywood movie and being invited to the premiere to meet hot Hollywood actors and sip champagne with the elite. And then there’s the fun of perusing the internet looking at pictures of hot Hollywood men and women to make your choices.
Jack: Jack’s our main man or protagonist if you prefer the big words. He’s the easiest character to cast. He’s got a nice physique but he’s more lean than muscular. He also has green eyes and blonde hair. My choice goes to Jude Law. I can totally see Jude Law in skinny jeans showing off his fabulous behind. Okay so he’s going bald but he can totally wear a wig.
Damien: After that, there’s Jack’s love interest Damien. Damien is tall with green eyes and dark hair. He’s got a muscular physique. Let me see – muscular physique and green eyes – hmm… you know it’s got to be Channing Tatum. There weren’t any other actors in the running, really.
Izzy: Izzy is Jack’s best friend. She’s a tall, curvy, brown-haired and green-eyed. I like Demi Moore for Izzy as Demi as those gorgeous eyes. She’d have to curl her hair and gain some weight but it could work. Of course I couldn’t imagine Demi agreeing to gain weight but this is my fantasy so I can pick who I want.
Noel: Noel is Izzy’s husband and the detective that continually has to pull Izzy, Jack and the Gray-Haired Knitting Detectives out of trouble. He’s tall, muscular and has dark hair and blue eyes. Bradley Cooper would totally work and not just because I have a crush on Bradley.
The Gray-Haired Knitting Detectives: Betty, Ally, Rosemary, Martha and Rose: Even though Jack Gets His Man takes place in Oklahoma, I’ve chosen a bunch of English actresses for these roles. I have a thing for British theater and movies. Betty is the gang leader of the knitting detectives. I choose Maggie Smith for that role. Maggie can totally take care of things. Ally is the quiet, shy member who has a heart of gold. Julie Walters is my pick for her. I think Julie is a total sweetheart. Then there’s Rosemary. She’s the grandmother. I picked Judi Dench for this role because it would be totally awesome to have Judi as a grandma. Martha is the matchmaker. That’s easy. No other woman but Celie Imrie would do for that role. Finally, there’s Rose. She’s the smart one. Helen Mirren gets my vote there.
