if it hasn't been said, and I didn't bother to read the whole thread, I always imagined the guy who played Steve Brady in Sex and the city as charlie asher

I read it with that voice in my head...

David Eigenberg, yeah, this guy:

that hammy caucasion!?! oh HELL NO!!

reveria has a sence of latino pride.. he's pretty damn dapper..
I would say antonio bandaras, but he's a a little too pretty for the role.. perhaps John leguizamo.

but yeah.. I agree with you on Margret Cho

but I still picture Dave Eigenberg as charlie

as for minty? no on sam jackson.. love the guy.. but no, too skinny.. too small too fair! Minty is supposed to be BLACK and HUGE!, with unreal blue eyes..
Micheal Clarke Duncan

lol. c'mon, you can never get enough hammy caucasian in a movie. I'm sure he could fake an accent.
as for minty, I was joking about Samuel. I was actually thinking about Michael Clarke Duncan, though I couldn't remember his name. I am inclined to think he would be a good pick. Or maybe Laurence Fishburne (Morpheus) or Forrest Wittaker (though he may be a bit old for the role now. He was awesome in Ghost Dog though)
are we all agreed that Uma Thurman would make a pretty mean Nemain? or maybe she could be Babd and Carrie Anne Moss could be Nemain.

I'm new here... *waves*

I haven't read this entire thread, but when I read the book I pictured someone like Edward Norton as Charlie.

Has anyone mentioned him yet? He's dorky beta, yet can pull out the cool when forced into it.

As for Lilly, I'm thinking the girl who played Juno- Ellen Page.

Oh, and I pictured Tony Todd (he played Candyman in that movie... a long time ago) as Minty Fresh. He's tall, big and has a slightly ominous face.

I thought of Tony Todd for Minty as well, but doubt he could deliver the funny lines as well as the Dunc'.

Some really good ideas here....
I have to read the book again though before I could really contribute my opinion. I'll get back to you, I'm thinking of doing a marathon of his books again.

Reading the book, I can't help but picture Charlie as Nathan Fillion and Minty Fresh as Mos Def. Not sure about anyone else. Let me think about it.

I am surprised that no one has mentioned Fisher Stevens as Charlie. He is the narrator for this great book, but because he is also an actor, I think he'd be perfect. He is, to me, the quintessential Charlie Asher.

I kind of pictured Colin Hanks as Charlie. And I pictured Lance Reddick from the tv show Fringe as Minty Fresh, and Lucille Soong as Mrs. Ling Smile

Actor for Charlie  Reply with quote  

Alan Cumming was who I had in mind the whole book. He could play confused beta male real good.
