“Pretend-casting your comic for when it becomes a movie”
It's the end of Nanowrimo! And that means—working extra hard to finish your novel? No. It means making Tony Hawk 4 your life because your novel is 2/3 finished at the most. Anyway, in Nanowrimo we like to imagine which actors would star in the movie adaptations of our novels, so here is a handy compendium of talent for the near future when the rights are bought out to make a probably bad movie (not):
Tenku = Austin Rivers
I think Austin fits Tenku perfectly. He can run fast. That's all the role requires. Plus, this sort of kid will look amazing fitted out with today's special effects during fight, explosion, and chase scenes.
What? He's not really any part Asian? Hollywood doesn't care.
Natie = 2012 of the Apocalynx
2012 has much too sweet of a face and personality to play Natie, I know, but the scowl can be added in Final Cut afterward and we can get someone nasty to voiceover the swears.
Dakki = Wenxin Yang
This guy is already Dakkitoro. He probably won't even need to read the script. Clearly he can do his own stunts, too, and draw in the chicks so hard the box office will herniate itself. The kid that introduces him could double as Tenku for the scenes Austin won't do because his dad who coaches Boston is worried about his little boy. @austinrivers25, if you're reading this, I didn't mean that last part, you're amazing and we are all just jealous of your mad skills and know it will be awesome when you're the #1 Pick and we can watch you become a superstar while remaining the good Believer you are. #m.o.a.m
Kazuyuki = Gabe York
"To my mom's working hard, my grandfather, doing it big...my brother....my brother finally caught his break, going to Tennessee-Martin, I'm proud of him, Eli..."
Shakti = Erica Nicole Madrid
Because Kat from Monos Urbanos is too busy riding her jetpack around the world fighting evildoers.
So there you have it. Actually, I can't stand movies, it would be better if they all just attended a dunk contest to raise funds to build a rocket launcher that would automatically detect and vaporize plastic trash, toxic substances, and cigarette butts from the ocean, turtle nesting areas, and estuaries all over the planet. 2012 could probably vaporize them herself, but she really does her best to be a team player now that she's Rookie of the Year and WNBA Champion instead of just being the greatest college player ever.
