Cast That Novel by Guest Blogger Stacy Deanne & Giveaway

The_Wild_LifeOne of the many questions I get whenever I am asked about my books is who would I cast as the main characters? I imagine most authors would find it cool to have a certain movie or TV star to act as their characters.

It’s easy for me to choose with my current series. My interracial suspense series focuses on Albany Detectives Brianna “Bree” Morris and Steven Kemp. They are best friends, partners, and they used to be lovers. Casting is more than easy to me because stars inspired the characters for me.

I’ll come clean and admit I’ve always had a crush (and still do) on Stephen Dorff, the guy from Blade. I can honestly say I named Steven after him. In fact I base some of Steven’s looks on Dorff though not to a T. For example Dorff is a bit shorter with brown eyes and my character is very tall around 6’3 with flashing blue eyes. My obsession with Dorff is what made me create Steven in the first place. Whether that’s pathetic or cute, it’s the truth. LOL!

I always saw Gabrielle Union and Sanaa Lathan as the perfect Bree. Once again because I originally thought of them when creating Bree.

While some authors would prefer a movie made of their books I’ve always wanted a TV show made of my books. I think an interracial crime drama would be hot this day and age. With the success of shows like Scandal, I think viewers are ready for more dramas starring talented black women.
