The World Among Us Tour Stop
|March 2, 2012||Posted by Cambria under guest post|
Today I am hosting Beth Ann Masarik, author of The World Among Us. She has dropped by today to tell us all who she would choose to play her characters if her book was ever made into a movie!
So I will hand everything over to Beth now, Beth Take it away!
*waves enthusiastically* Hello everyone! It’s a real treat for me to be here on Cambria’s blog today. I am here to talk to you today about my novel, The World Among Us: Prince of Darkness. It is a YA/Urban Fantasy series that takes place in a little town called Port Washington, NY. It revolves around Greek Mythology, vampires, all kinds of paranormal creatures, and forbidden love. Let’s take a look at the synopsis first, shall we?
In The World Among Us, Hades, the god of the Underworld, plots to take over the world, and remove Gaia, the head Deity, from power. In order to do so, he plots against his own son, Damien, and cons him into killing his soul mate, the beautiful goddess of the moon, Selene. Hades does so, because Gaia is his natural enemy, and Selene is her favorite grandchild. He thinks that by killing off Gaia’s favorite grandchild, he will weaken her. With Selene out of the way, Hades then moves in on the Creatures of the Night. He wants to kill off their leader, Jason Aysel. Jason is the go-between person between worlds, and another person that Gaia highly regards. Hades manipulates and cons Jason’s best friend, Leon Greene, into murdering him, by offering him Jason’s position as his reward. Because of these actions, a war is to take place on earth between the gods and other Creatures of the Night. During this time, Selene is reincarnated, and kept hidden as a secret weapon to win the war against Hades. In order to win the war of wars, the gods and some of the demons will have to fight together, and learn to co-operate with each other. Will the Titans and Olympians be able to set aside their differences, and take back the world from Hades? Or is the world as we know it, doomed to fall under dark shadows, forever?
Now, doesn’t that sound interesting? Anywho, Cambria asked me what I thought was a very interesting question.
If The World Among Us was made into a movie, who would the cast be and why?
I have to admit, this was a very difficult question to answer, BUT, I think I’ve come up with a pretty good cast. I’d like to know what you guys think after you read the post.
Gaia would be played by Jennifer Anistan.
Why? Because she is just so beautiful, and I had her in mind when I wrote Gaia’s role. Jennifer has the same kind of charm and grace that I picture Gaia having.
Selene would be played by Amy Adams.
Why? Because I think that Amy is truly beautiful, and a wonderfully talented actress. I’ve seen Amy in several movies, and in every movie she just blows my mind away. Plus, she’s one of the few actresses with naturally red hair.
Damien would be played by Jensen Ackles.
Why? Because Jensen is just so good looking, and he kicks some serious ass, just like Damien. Plus, he’s got that whole bad-boy innocent type look about him. I just wanna pinch his cheeks! LOL.
Hyperion would be played by Orlando Bloom.
Why? To tell you the truth, it’s just because he’s so hot, that he looks like he could be a god. Enough said.
Theia would be played by Sara Michelle Gellar.
Why? Because she resembled Jennifer Anistan in my opinion, and she is just kick-butt. She may look sweet and innocent, but is not one to mess with.
DuVessa would be played by Summer Glau
Why? Because that’s just who I picture as DuVessa. She’s pretty kick-butt and looks great too!
Arianna Aysel would be played by Taylor Swift.
Why? No real specific reason other than the fact that was who I first thought of. I happen to love Taylor Swift, and I think her personality would just match Arianna’s character nicely.
And lastly, the role of Emily Smith would be played by Anne Hathaway.
Why? Well, for several reasons actually. I absolutely ADORE both Emily and Anne. I happen to think that Anne Hathaway is EXTREMELY talented, and would be a great addition to the cast.
Well, there you have it folks! That’s my cast for you.
