My novel is not published but, my dear Sir Jim of Jimmingtonham – I assure you I am working on it so you can read it.
In other news, when I began my novel some time ago I started by getting to know my characters. This game of finding famous actors and actresses who reminded me of the characters I was creating is one I’ve played before. I also found this particularly helpful when describing to my husband the characters and the plot. Assigning real life actors and actresses gave him a visual and he would often respond with, “AH! Now I get it.”
Let us begin:
Main Male Protagonist: Professor Evan Murphy – Mark Ruffalo
Main Female Protagonist: Morgan Osmond-Carredine – Ellie Kemper
Supporting Character: Professor Whitney Vanderveen – Cameron Diaz
Supporting Male Antagonist: Professor Aaron Vanderveen – Jason Bateman
Supporting Character: Elise Merrifield – Julia Stiles
Supporting Male Antagonist: Joey Merrifield – John Krasinski
Supporting Female Antagonist: Robin Carredine – Kat Dennings
Two key players I do not have a cast for are Prof. Evan’s children. His daughter Karen is 17 and an aspiring model which both Evan and Whitney support to different degrees and their son Chad who is about 21 and lives an artist life. Evan respects his son, Whitney thinks he is foolish and a waste.
There is my cast. But one step at a time. Still need to get a book out!
