I definitely think that Cote de Pablo is perfect for Anita. As for Jean-Claude I am not sure.
I thought LKH said she had decided not to do the series. I think she said something about it in her blog and on Twitter??
is that really true.
I went and looked it up on her blog to make sure here's the link http://blog.laurellkhamilton.org/index.php/site/comments/the_tv_show_on_ifc_is_not_happening/ I was quite sad about it too :(
I actually love the fact that LKH didn't want hollywood to wreck her books. I wish more authors felt that way instead of seeing dollars signs in front of their face and letting the directors do whatever they want to it.
@Alex P - I actually quite agree. I wouldn't want her to give it to Hollywood and then have them butcher the characters and the story. No matter how much I would LOVE to see a live action recreation of Anita's adventures.
I agree, I wouldn't want hollywood to butcher the series I love so much.
With some authors, they should do it. Sookie Stackhouse is definately better on TV (most of the time, they went a little crazy with the Menyad). The author doesn't do her characters justice. However, you can't change a thing about Anita Blake. She's perfect the way she is.
I can't think of anyone pretty enough to be Jean-Claude. I pick Jessica Alba as Anita.
