Re: the casting game
- Dear All,
Since this is my first letter, I am a 46-year-old computer support Technical
Manager, living in Dallas, Texas. My partner found Luck in the Shadows
early last summer, and when I got hold of it, I proceeded to devour the entire series.
And all this list-talk has got me reading Luck again...
In terms of the casting game, it would require a career change for the
individual involved, but Seragil would have to be played by ice skater
Philippe Candeloro. The accent would be wrong (altho just a hint of
accent might be appropriate), but in terms of looks, he's a dead
ringer. And when he performs, no matter what his costume/performance,
he becomes the part. If you've never seen his skating performances, you should.
As for Mardus, I just don't see Johnny Depp. Mardus needs more
maturity and elegance but with a certain amount of menace. My
candidates would be John Malkovich, Anthony Hopkins, Lee Van Cleef or
(going back a few years) Anthony Zerbe...
