And while we’re thinking about books converted to tv/movies. Do you ever sit and wonder who could be cast as your favorite characters? (Please feel free to give examples!)
What actors do you think have done particularly excellent jobs with some of your favorite characters?
No, I don’t usually try to match a character with an actor. If a cover has the image of a character, I’m usually stuck with that in my mind.
I’m an old school Holmes fan: Jeremy Brett is the only true Holmes for me. I also like very much David Suchet as Hercules Poirot.
On the film front I thought the Lord of the Rings movies were very well cast. I especially enjoyed Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn and Orlando Bloom as Legolas.
