Found a pretty cool site called "My Book, The Movie". It showcases an author's novel and the author gets to explain who they had in mind, or would envision playing the characters in their novel. Take a look HERE
Deciding something like this for my novel Mindjacker was pretty easy, because I modeled each character after someone famous as I wrote the story. Basically, I had the image in my head and created the character based on that. The above picture is John Paul DeJoria, who I imagined as the nefarious, megalomaniac shrink Joel Fischer. But, I'd be willing to throw Mel Gibson a bone to get his career back on track, if he was up for it. How about any of you. Any famous or infamous people you envisioned playing a part in your stories or novels? Here's the rest of my cast for Mindjacker.
Tom (Fischer's brainwashed guinea pig) : Ewan MacGregor
Bryce (Fischer's other brainwashed guinea pig): Jarod Leto
Crystal ( Fischer' girlfiend and co-conspirator) : Jenna Lamia
Derrik (Fischer's bodyguard) : Anthony Anderson
James ( Fischer's bodyguard and chemist): Vin Diesel
Evan ( L.A. cop in Fischer's pocket): Josh Brolin
