Movie Cast for RUIN FALLS
Normally, as I’m reading- my insides are buzzing with good feelings about the characters- like “ooh, the way this person said that line makes me think of XYZ from that television show/movie.” Or, maybe I’m watching TV and some character just comes into focus and I’m all “THERE! That’s who needs to play XZY in the movie version of said book that I am
obsessing (err,,,, reading) currently. So, when I started thinking about RUIN FALLS, I was surprised to say that I’m blocked. Like, as I was reading, I was getting very little “ooh this person” moments. A few days of scouring the internet has helped come up with some possibilities (plus a watching of THE BLIND SIDE where I may have jumped up and screamed “He’s PAUL! He’s PAUL!” )
Liz: At first she’s kind of laid-back and easy-going- though we later find that is not exactly how she wants to be. I’ve been seeing a few ads for THE BEST OF ME, and when I saw Michelle Monaghan, I was intrigued. I could see her playing Liz. However, a viewing of THE HELP on the TV a few days ago gave me an intriguing thought: Ahna O’Reilly who plays Elizabeth in the movie might just have the chops for Liz in RUIN FALLS. She could play that earlier version of Liz- laid-back and easy-going pretty well- but the later version, where Liz begins to figure things out- that is what I’d like to see Ahna sink her teeth in.
Paul: I never really cared for Paul. Like, he just rubbed me the wrong way. So Paul was hard for me, at first, to find someone that kind of fit in with my image. Watched THE BLIND SIDE on ABC Family a couple of Sundays ago- and seeing the coach in that- well, it just kind of hit me- HE would be good. He’s got something that works- but he could also be very multi-layered (which Paul is!) Ray McKinnon could be a good Paul!
Tim: Tim was a #literarycrush in RUIN FALLS. So, I decided that Matthew Goode would be a possibility. He’s easy on eyes and exudes confidence.
The Shoemaker: My darn book is at home and I can’t recall his real name. But, The Shoemaker is good-looking- with something chilling about his personality. Ian Somerhalder is who came to mind for me during an internet search. He’s gorgeous- but I think he could play someone with a chilling personality as well! The Shoemaker wins the #literarycreep award!
So….. tell me what you think if you’ve read the book- and be sure to check out Rhiannon @ Ivory Owl Reviews cast!
Happy Reading and Bookishly Yours,
