Casting the books

Who would play the lead characters in the movie production of The O Line Mysteries?

As the author of the books and producer of the podcasts that is such a difficult question. Imagining people playing the lead roles is very difficult because when I write the books now I actually hear the people who read for the roles in the podcast. If I ever turn the books into audiobooks they would be read by Nina, who played Annie. I can't imagine anyone else doing that.

But okay the casting. Well Michael would have to be a young Jackie Chan. Not so much with the martial arts but with nearly all Jackie Chan movies he finds himself in an unbelievable situation and he translates that 'holy crap!' feeling so well. And that ability would be so important for that role.
Tim would have to be an 'average joe' think Sean Astin.
I see Annie as perhaps Pauley Perrette, from NCIS, with auburn hair.
And Lorna would have to be played by Heather Graham or someone who can do comedy as well as she. I think she is a very under-utilized actress.
Lorna's sister, Tessa, I think Ali Wentworth would work well, or someone with her sensibilities.
And Sally would be someone like Rosalind Chao or China Chow.
Aisha Tyler or Debra Wilson would play Roberta Fitzgerald.
The rest of the cast would all be character actors and actresses.

By the way, I'm still working on the short story I mentioned earlier so stay tuned.
