Casting Women of Power



Fantasizing about one's book being made into a movie is always fun, especially wondering who migh be tapped to play your characters.  I decided to take a look at who might be good choices for the characters in Women of Power.


Elisha Cuthbert really works as Stella (aka All American Girl).  She looks great in short blond hair and could easily pull off Stella's sassy, ass-kicking style.


I like Blake Lively for Linda (aka Skygirl).  Linda is on the surface a sort of vapid farm girl, but is more than she appears underneath.


Bruce Willis as Professor Destruction.  Bruce Willis can play all kinds of parts, but I'd really like to see him as a villain.  His voice is perfect too.


Ryan Gosling as Perihelion, Stella's ex.  He's described as being just about perfect, as spokesmodel for Italian suits, and the most handsome superhero on the planet, so there you go.


Perihelion's new squeeze Omega Woman has a very unusual golden look, but is also beautiful in an unearthly way.  Lesli Bibb could pull that off.



Omega Woman's BFF Dynagirl has a quirky, retro thing going on.  Zooey Dechanel could pull off the cape, mask, and gogo boots.



Sam Worthington as Dark Energy.  He's a bad guy, but Stella finds him kind of attractive too.  She would never tell him so, partially because she's too busy pounding on him.


Sam Rockwell would be a great Irving.  Stella's agent Irving is one of my favorite characters, particularly since I've never seen a superhero's agent before, so I can claim to have come up with the idea.  To be Irving, you have to be able to do comedy and drama and Sam Rockwell could/has done both well.

There you go.  Let me know what you think.  If you haven't picked up Women of Power yet, you can get it for 99 cents wherever fine ebooks are sold.
