Moving on to the point of this post. I've recently finished reading The Lost Symbol, and am pleased to discover that it, too, will receive a film adaptation with Tom Hanks returning as Robert Langdon, along with a new director, Mark Romanek. (Perhaps that substitution will enhance the film.) While there is no release date for the film, nor are there any rumored cast members, I've taken the opportunity to list my own possible cast for the film, based on how I imagined the characters in the novel. Here they are:
|Michael Fassbender as Mal'akh|
This image was so fitting to support my casting him.
|Liam Neeson as Peter Solomon|
I chose this picture because Peter Solomon is meant to have gray strands of hair.
See those strands in Liam Neeson's mane? They're there.
|Catherine Zeta-Jones as Katherine Solomon|
She embodies the role, as I see it, flawlessly.
|Morgan Freeman as Warren Bellamy|
An expected choice, but that's because it's meant to be.
|Linda Hunt as Inoue Sato|
Yet another uncanny match.
|Peter O'Toole as Reverend Colin Galloway|
I know this is a Pope's attire. Move past the small difference.
And last but not least...
|Tom Hanks as Robert Langdon|
Well, I sincerely hope you've enjoyed my little presentation of possibilities. Perhaps at least one of these actors will be considered, or even obtain the role! How neat would that be! Though not very likely. After a second glance at this list, I now find myself desperately wishing Michael Fassbender would audition for and win the role of Mal'akh. Such a terrific actor, he could benefit from playing a calm, menacing villain. And he's so attractive. With that, I bid thee good evening!
P.S. I am still watching Desperate Housewives.
