Casting for the Sunder Movie

I don't know about other writers, but I generally have an actor or public figure in mind when I'm writing a character. I can't help but seek out a familiar face when I imagine my characters. I do the same thing when I read books. I definitely know I am not alone in that respect, as my voice was one of many shrieking "why?" to the heavens when Tom Cruise was cast as Jack Reacher. Wrong! Actor Kevin Durand is Jack Reacher! I will accept no substitutions. So I thought I would give a little insight into who I had in mind when I first wrote Sunder. Just keep in mind, I started writing in 2006, so the majority of these fine people look a tad different and one of them is no longer with us.

Alana de la Garza as Isabella

Alfred Molina as Alfredo

Tom Hardy as Caedda

Taylor Momsen as Saoirse

Jeremy Sumpter as Thorstein

Emilio Rivera as Julio Guerrero

Faran Tahir as Councilman Paul Canaan

Did I forget your favorite character? Who did you imagine as you read through?
