Why are they all famous people? Because when I start writing, I need a solid picture in my head, and it helps to have a reference. Eye color, hair color, muscledyness (What? It's a word!) might change, but I watch a lot of movies, and I need a visual cue. These are physical only-- not character driven at all. So forgive me for... what shall we call it? OBJECTIFYING A BIT.
Here's a *LOOSE* run-down of the heroes of Sang:
CRIMINY STAIN of WICKED AS THEY COME
Old-school Johnny Depp with a slight dash of
Jonathan Rhys-Meyers for cheekbones and sulkiness.
CASPER STERLING of WICKED AS THEY COME and WICKED AS SHE WANTS
Brad Pitt as Louis de Pointe du Lac in Interview with a Vampire, but with the dimples of
Old-school Matthew McConnaughey, circa A Time to Kill. I was eighteen when it came out, and it made me feel a little funny when they scrubbed those floors.
MR. MURDOCH from THE MYSTERIOUS MADAM MORPHO
This one's a little tougher, mainly because he wasn't a one-to-one comparison. If I had to pin it down, I would say a dose of long-haired, jovial
Ewan McGregor with a dash of
Alexander Skarsgaard. I mean, I guess.
THOM MACCALLAN of THE PECULIAR PETS OF MISS PLEASANCE
Straight up Chris Hemsworth in a kilt. I HAVE NO REGRETS.
VALE HILDEBRAND of BLUD BOOK 3
I have my eye on this fellow:
With a dash of Henry Cavill as Melot in Tristan + Isolde.
CHARLIE DREGS of WICKED AS THEY COME and THE THREE LIVES OF LYDIA
And for the people on my Facebook page who keep saying he's hobbity (HOBBITY??), here's a less hobbity picture:
What, you didn't know Charlie was Benedict Cumberbatch? Silly goose!
Considering WICKED AS THEY COME is the only one actually available, did anyone else have another dude in mind? I'm curious.
