I-Team Casting Couch — the heroes

Moving right along — we have a production schedule to which we must adhere, after all — I think a couple of heroes are ready to be cast. But I need your vote.

For Julian Darcangelo, its down to fellow Italian, Raffaello Balzo. I love his eyes, which have Julian's coloring.

Or Eduardo Verastugui. I love his intensity and can see him playing someone known on the street as "Dark Angel."

For Reece Sheridan, a late-comer, Jason Lewis, who pretty much fits the description of Reece all around. No voting here. I'm just going to call this one.

And for Marc, either Henry Cavill

or Brazilian model Daniel Bueno.

So cast your votes, and we'll move on to the heroines. And thanks to all of you for the luscious photos you've been emailing me!

OK...I vote Daniel for Marc and Eduardo for Julian (although that is a really tough choice).

Barbara said...

I'm loving Julian!! Yum! As I told you, I know you described Reece to be on the fair side, but I piture him kinda dark. That's my own private fantasy Reece *wink*

Christine said...

for Marc, def. choice number two.
For Julian? I'm at a complete tie..
no...choice number 2 with choice number one being someone later on...

Debbie H said...

For Julian -- Raffaello

For Marc -- Daniel

Christi said...

can't type right now... too busy drooling!

Anonymous said...

Oh Eduardo Verastegui mmm yummy!!! I think i have pics of him somewhere on my external hard drive. In a file named "hotties" lol
And I'd vote for Daniel Bueno as Marc Hunter.

Now there's drool pooling on my keyboard....messy!


Debbie_D said...

Eduardo Verastegui = Julian
Daniel Bueno = Marc

*gets towel to wipe up drool*

Jane said...

I'm going with Raffaello for Julian and Daniel for Marc.

OK, so far the tally is running:

2 for Raffaello
3 for Eduardo
1 can't decide

6 for Daniel
0 for Henry Cavill

One abstention caused by being too busy drooling.

OK, we'll see if anyone pops in to shake up this vote. If not, then it looks like we have our three male leads and we'll move on to heroines. I've got some suggestions in my email.

I hope everyone is having a great day!

Luci said...

Raffaello for Julian and Henry Cavill for Marc. I might like Daniel but not having seen him before, in this picture he has too much hair in front of his face to see him clearly.

Raffaello Balzo has gorgeous eyes.

Love your casting for Reece :)

Wow! So with Luci's vote, we're tied with Raffaello and Eduardo. I guess that means I break the tie, unless someone else posts super-fast.

In the meantime -- I have ADD, I guess -- I have cast everyone else, so I'm going to share the pics with you in my next post. :-)

And then we can move on to other topics.


Vivienne said...

I agree with all your casting ideas, with the exception of Jason. He cannot act. I just saw him in a movie where he had the lead - FARAWAY WEDDING - set in India, and watching his performance was painful!! Henry Cavill can recite the alphabet and he would get my vote any day.

Wendy said...

I'm with you 100% on Raffaello for Julian. Perfect! Did a google image search to see more pictures(never heard of that guy) and had to lean back in my chair since my whole body went limp.

May I submit Ryan Reynolds for Marc? Not only is he gorgeous, but he has a sweet, vulnerable look underneath like I imagine Marc to have...

Hi, Wendy —

I just checked Ryan out. Nice physique for sure. And I could see him as Marc. :-)

Angie said...

Ok, done drooling. Henry Cavill for Marc Hunter and Eduardo Verastegui for Julian Darcangelo. But where's Gabe?
