Disclaimer: There is currently no plan in the works to bring Thalia’s Musings to film or television. None of these actors have been contacted about such a project. This is pure fantastical speculation on the part of an indie author with delusions of grandeur. Please don’t sue me.
If you recall, this casting series was inspired by a Next Big Thing blog tour that I participated in last week. Today the indie author that I tagged, Carol Parsons, posted her Next Big Thing interview about the latest book in her Journals of Peregrine series. This feel-good sci-fi adventure series is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Go read about it!
PERSEPHONE: Kate Beckinsale, star of the Underworld film series, is my choice for the Queen of the Underworld.
In this post I cast Evangeline Lilly as Persephone’s mother, Demeter. I can see the family resemblance. Beckinsale is actually older than Lilly, but shut up no she’s not oh my gods she’s a real vampire.
HADES: The Iron Queen needs a dark King. The natural choice is Shane Brolly, aka Kraven, Kate Beckinsale’s fellow Underworld vampire.
They make a very pretty Power Couple of Darkness.
ADONIS: Chord Overstreet, currently playing Sam Evans, your average nice Christian teenage stripper next door, on Glee.
Yeah, he’s adopted.
MNEMOSYNE: Morena Bacarrin, perhaps most famous as Inara Serra on Firefly and Serenity.
Besides the fact that she looks perfect for the part, Morena has the right aura for a maternal Lady-of-the-Lake Mystery-goddess archetype.
MINTHE: Mila Kunis, recently seen in Ted.
I cannot stand Mila Kunis. I have no idea why. She just annoys me. Maybe it’s because she got to do a love scene with Natalie Portman and I didn’t. Anyway, for whatever reason, it would greatly amuse me to see Kate Beckenvamp turn Mila into a sprig of mint.
Next up: Casting the Muses!
