DOON, a Fantasy Casting Session


 Since Melissa brought up the titillating topic of who would play her characters in a book to movie adaptation, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the possibilities for DOON. Or perhaps *dreaming* is more appropriate. What author wouldn’t love to see their story played out in all its digital motion picture glory? A more serious literary author than myself might shun the idea out of fear that their vision could be tainted by Hollywoood’s commercial grip, but for me DOON being made into a movie would be a fantasy come true!
That said, casting the characters who have come to life in my head over the past two years, is a next to impossible task. Especially, my beautiful, tortured prince, Jamie MacCrae. Yet, as difficult as it is for one person to exemplify my larger-than-life-kilt-wearing hero, I do occasionally come across actors who are reminiscent of Jamie, top of the list being the gorgeous, Alex Pettyfer.    
Not only does this actor physically resemble Jamie with his golden hair, chiseled features and dimpled chin, but he has an indefinable quality that is the essence of Jamie—a combination of sensitivity and wickedness that makes him unpredictable and a little bit dangerous. 

I think he'd look mighty good in a kilt, don't you?

Jamie is fiercely protective of his sheltered kingdom, and his heart, so it takes a strong heroine to get past all his defenses. 
Enter Veronica Welling, the complex protagonist of our story—an idealist cheerleader with the heart of a warrior. Petite with long, dark hair and aqua-blue eyes, her ready smile expresses a sincere warmth and intelligence, but hides a constant struggle to overcome her heartbreaking childhood.
While recently watching the Disney movie, PROM, I discovered Danielle Campbell.
This young actress not only fits the vision in my head of Veronica, but she shows the potential to pull off her depth as well. And *bonus* she can sing and dance! And since the original Brigadoon movie was a musical, these skills just might come in handy for the film adaptation of DOON.   

 One of the most unique things about the DOON series is that you get two authors for the price of one! ;-) The first novel in our four-book series, releasing later this year, focuses on Veronica and Jamie, and the second installment, releasing in 2014, will tell the story of Veronica’s snarky, theater-obsessed best friend, Mackenna Reid and Jamie’s charming, younger brother, Duncan MacCrae. So stay tuned in the coming weeks for my fabulous co-author, Carey Corp’s continuation of the Doon fantasy casting session!

Thanks for allowing me to indulge in my pipedream, dear Honest readers. :)  I can’t wait to hear who you would choose to play Veronica and Jamie once you’ve read DOON!

Lorie Langdon and Carey Corp are the authors of DOON, the Scottish legend of Brigadoon reimagined, coming in September, 2013 from Zondervan/Harper Collins. If you enjoy romance, adventure and hot boys in kilts, we’d love it if you’d add DOON to your TBR list on Goodreads

How fun is this!!!! I cannot improve upon what you've come up with. I think both of these actors/models would be amazing. I vote yes! :)

Melissa Landers said...

Yummy! I already told you this, but I think of Jamie every time I see King Arthur's character on SyFy's "Merlin."

Jessica Lemmon said...

Mmmmm, Alex! I like those choices, Lorie! Can't wait to read DOON. :)

Lorie Langdon said...

@Jenn - Thanks! I'll be sure to let the casting director know when the time comes. ;-) This is my unofficial poll!

@Mel - I'll have to watch an episode of Merlin and check him out!

@Jessica - Thx! This was definitely fun, fun, fun! :D

Kimberly said...

Lorie,
I love your choices! As I've read an early version of Doon, I can see exactly why you'd choose these two! And yes! I can really see Alex in a kilt and playing Jamie. Let's just hope Hollywood gets a move on this. Otherwise, he'll be a touch too old then...
Fingers crossed for a quick movie production. :-)
I'm not too familiar with the girl, but it would have to be somebody great to play Veronica!
Can't wait to read the newest version of this wonderful story! It will be at the top of my TBR list! I'm putting it there RIGHT NOW!
Have a happy Monday!
Congrats again on Doon!

No clue why it commented twice.
I must be THAT good....:-)

Lorie Langdon said...

Aww, thanks Kim! You are absolutely right about Alex almost being too old, we need to get working on those movie rights asap! ;o)
Thanks for being one of our first readers, you've always believed in Doon and that means so much!!!!

Pintip said...

Wow! Lorie, obviously I haven't read your and Carey's book, but I am so impressed with your choices. They fit your description of the characters to a T! This is such a fun exercise. And it totally makes me want to read Doon! Congrats again, and I can't wait for the release!

Lorie Langdon said...

Thanks Pintip! I'm excited for you to read it too!! :D

Cecy said...

Looking forward to the movie!

Lorie Langdon said...

Me too, Cecy! ;D He he.

Jennifer McAndrews said...

I tried to read your post, Lorie, really I did. But I couldn't get past that picture of Alex Pettyfer. Somehow, my scroll bar just got stuck there... weird...

Lorie Langdon said...

LOL!!! I know the feeling Jen, I had to sort through a ton of pictures of him to come up with just the right ones...it was hard work, let me tell you. ;o)

Kristi Cook said...

I think these are perfect choices! :o)

Lorie Langdon said...

Thanks, Kristi! This was really fun. :D
