    Emma Stone!! She’s the perfect Rachel. :) BTW, please don’t let them make a movie… it HAS to be a series… one season per book… otherwise there is NO WAY they can do it justice :)

  2. Sydney S

    I feel that Elodie Yung would make a good Ivy. She has that exotic look and her acting skills show she can be a diverse actress in her roles

  3. SJD :)

    Rhys Ifans would make the PERFECT Al, he’s just so good at eccentric baddies. Plus he’s blond which helps :)

  4. Narya

    Heey,
    sorry for my bad english, it’s only school english…

    i’m a big fan of rachel but ivy is my favorite. i just read the 4 book because to much of my friends spoilered… i hope there will be many movies. can’t get enough! *-*
    i think
    - Chasty Ballesteros (maaaybeeee… *grin*)
    - Sienna Guillory (long black hair and a bit make up… :D)
    - Megan Fox (a bit unnatural but she looks hot and ivy is hot!)
    - Maggie Q (mabye she’s a bit too old..?)
    - Anna Silk (with black hair and some make up for her eyes she would be perfect too)
    - Moon Bloodgood (http://www.theplace2.ru/archive/moon_bloodgood/img/247011_MrShadow.jpg)
    - Karen Cliche (maybee… but i don’t know… ^^)
    - Kate Beckinsale
    would be good ivys but it’s really to diffcult to find the perfect ivy. ;(

    i really like the picture, don’t know if you know them already… but i just love them… *_*http://markrudeauthorartist.blogspot.de/p/dead-witch-project.html

    but please no Elrond for Piscary… it would ruin my world… Elrond *-*

    lovley greets. germany loves you bookes too! :)

    The things people suffer for their art!

    I just found out that my favourite for the part of Rachel, Milla Jovovich, when she was playing Leeloo in “The Fifth Element”, suffered hair loss from the orange hair colour treatment they used on her, so they had to make her a wig instead!

  6. Jackie

    Jessica Chastian for Rachel http://us.cdn281.fansshare.com/photos/jessicachastain/jessica-chastain-red-hair-db-43384293.jpg

    Jensen Ackels for Trenthttp://www.teenidols4you.com/picture.html?g=Actors&pe=jensen_ackles&foto=554&act=490&mv=4&pic=346312

    Okay so I can’t process further than that right now because I’m still in shock/bliss from The Undead Pool. ;) <3 <3 <3 Feelings too much feels right now!!!

  7. mila

    Perfect Trent? Gerard Way of course… Although his hair could be a bit longer than it was in the good old Black Parade days.

  8. I hope they would make a Rachel Morgan movie, with Emma Stone as Rachel. Emma looks how I imagine Rachel would look, and sounds alot like Marguerite Gavin, the performer in the audiobooks.

  9. Kara

    I was reading an article about how Netflix and now Amazon are in the “Original Series” gig. I think The Hollows would be perfect for Netflix to pick up. Not sure about Amazon as I havent seen any of their original series. This way it wouldn’t have to be PG-13. I personally think Netflix and HBO have way better showws then the major networks!

  10. Loretta Misura

    No comment on who should play the roles,, but musically, the perfect Rachael song is the song Demons b y Imagine Dragons.

  11. Rossy

    How about Kristin Kreuk for Ivy? I think she can pull off the look, I saw her the Beauty and the Beast series. Joseph Morgan as Al, I think he was born for the role =D

  12. John S.

    oh I was thinking maybe Jamie Campbell Bower (The guy from Mortal Instruments: City of Bones) for Jenks maybe…

  13. Kiraglade

    Rachel – Julie McNiven (Anna Supernatural)
    Jenks – Can’t think of anyone who could pull off his look
    Trent – Jensen Ackles (Supernatural – he’s so pretty)
    Al – Daniel Giles (Saving Hope)
    Ivy – Maggie Q or Madchen Amick
    Kisten – Justin Hartley
    Ceri – Zooey Deschanel (super cute & quirky)
    Nick – Callum Blue (Tudors)
    Newt – Tilda Swinton
    Matalina – Amy Adams
    Belle – Rooney Mara

  14. Marcia Siehr

    I’m kind of a newbie in The Hollows world. I just started book 5, and I just love them! I love picturing the cast in my head when I read, and this is who I see:
    Ivy- Ellen Wong (Scott Pilgrim v. the World)
    Rachel- Kat Dennings (with red hair obviously)
    Jenks- Zach Roerig (Vampire Diaries) or Jason Stackhouse from HBO True Blood
    Ceri- Evanna Lynch (Luna from Harry Potter)
    Trent- Kellen Lutz
    Kisten- I always picture Jason Lewis but I realize he is too old now… so next I guess Cam Gigandet or I picture the actor from CHUCK who played “Awesome, ” Chuck’s brother in law.
    Nick- Penn Badgley
    Al- Simon Baker
    Keasley- John Amos

  15. Alice

    Jenks – Adam Campbell
    Kisten – Henry Cavill
    Rachel – Izabela von Landsberg
    Trent – Alexander Skarsgard
    David – Ola Rapace
    Minias – Kostja Ullmann
    Newt – Tilda Swinton
    Al – Jared Leto
    Francis Percy – Adrian Brody
    Matalina – Emma Stone
    Glenn – Terrence Jenkins
    Johnatan – Carlos Leal
    Denon – Idris Elba
    Ceri- Diane Kruger

  16. lvlocalgirl

    OK Kim. There’s a new show on called ‘Betrayal’. The show itself is only so-so but the daughter of the lead (red head) and the young female computer hacker at the office (dark hair slightly asian) she is sort of dating are awesome together and I was surprised how perfect they would be.

  17. Sandy Pants

    Michael Fassbender were be peeeerfect for Al. His smile is quite mischevious.

    Rachel- Deborah Ann Woll
    Ivy- Olivia Munn
    Trent- Cillian Murphy circa 2009

  18. Jen

    I forgot Jenks!!! Simon Baker

  19. Jen

    Rachel: Laura Prepon
    Ivy: Lucy Lu, but she is too old so maybe Megan Fox even though she isn’t Asian
    Al: Johnny Depp
    Nick: John Krasinski
    Trent: David Beckham (who cares if he can act or not)
    Ceri: Cate Blanchett
    Glenn: The Rock
    Quen: Edward James Olmos

  20. Lisa

    What about Tom Hiddleston as AL, Ian Somerhalder as Trent, Scarlett Johansson as Ceri, Imogen Poots as Rachael, Grace Park as Ivy, Dustin Clare as Quen, Alexander Skarsgard as Jenks, and Henry Cavill as Kisten. I wish they would make a movie. I love this series so much.

  21. I’ve been picturing Al as Eddie Izzard. And, I know it’s a little too easy, but I picture Ivy as Lucy Lu. I have never been able to come up with a good Rachel, but I saw someone said either Kate Winslet or Jennifer Garner, and I’d be cool with either one of those. I’d lean more toward Jennifer Garner, though. MAYBE Kate Beckinsdale (sp?).

    • John S.

      Satoshi Tsumabuki for Takata (star from the J-drama Orange Days), or Takuya Kimura (played in the J-Drama Pride)

      Cillian Murphy or David Tennant as Al
      Emma Stone as Rachel
      Ziyi Zhang as Ivy
      Seth Green as Jenks
      Brandon Routh or Matt Bomer as Trent
      Jack Black as Piscary
      Ken Watanabe as Quen
      Josh Hutcherson as Nick
      Scarlett Johansson as Ceri
      Chris Pine as Kisten

      That’s just a short list off the top of my head for a beginning movie before Piscary bites it

    • Becca

      “Piscary bites it”

      (Drums) Bah dum bum tsssss!!!

  22. Lauri

    I can see Deborah Ann Woll as Rachel. She has the youthfulness and the intensity and the vulnerability.
    And Alexander Skarsgard could make a charming Trent or Kisten.

  23. Erin

    Maggie Q would definitely fit for the lovely (and lethal) Ivy

  24. Tracey Gillham

    Totally just watched lost girl and thought Anna Silk (Bo) would make a hot Ivy

  25. Tracey Gillham

    Rachel Nichols or BrittneySnow for Rachel and either Sienna Miller or Maggie Q for Ivy.

  26. When reading the book I always picture Al as Julian McMahon.

  27. I envision Isla Fisher or Amy Adams as Rachel; and Ming-Na Wen, Lucy Liu, or (my favorite!) Grace Park as Ivy.
    As I understand that Trent looks like a blonde version of Vlad Tepes, I have no Earthly Idea what actor to assign yet, lol.

  28. There’s an actress on Camp (the summer series on NBC) that immediately made me think of Ivy when I saw her: Charlotte Nicdao. She looks young, but Ivy is young, and she can be very intense, which is definitely Ivy.

    The trouble with Rachel is that she’s not drop dead gorgeous. She’s the girl next door you take for granted until she does something that stuns you and makes you see her, the real her. Imogen Poots is a great, pretty, girl next door type, and she could crush it as Rachel.

    Alex Pettyfer would be perfect for Kisten, especially with the accent.

    Ryan Gosling looks the part of Trent, but he has that mumbly speech pattern (is it an impediment?) that doesn’t fit. Trent is very careful about how he presents himself, and his speech would be very precise.

    I always picture a Raiders of the Lost Ark era John Rhys-Davies when reading about Al. There must be a younger version of John out there. Or a younger version of Ian McShane.

    Jeremy Renner as Quen. He has that rough but competent look.

    Amanda Seyfried as Ceri. She has a fey look with those amazing eyes.

    Andrew Lee Potts as Pierce. I wonder if he could do Al, though.

    Oh, well. I’ll enjoy the books while they last, and hope they decide to do a series or mini-series.

  29. SK

    I can’t help… I think Orlando Bloom (his look in “Lord of the Rings”) would fit perfectly for Trent.

  30. old72jim

    Hi Ms Kim-I can’t see anyone as Rachel but Mila Jovovitch.Morgan Freeman is keasley hands down. And ariany Celeste (Lopez) as Ivy of course..

  31. Becca

    Here’s why I imagine when I read the books:

    Rachel – I can’t think of an actress that fits her well enough. I always imagine the girl on the front of ever after but with curly hair
    Ivy – this one is hard for me to pin down in my head. But I see Maggie Q
    Al – Tom hiddleston. Hands down. Perfect.
    Trent – Ryan gosling. Crazy stupid love did it for me. Ryan in those suits?? Holy crap..
    Jenks – the guy who played Peter Pan. Idk his name
    Kisten – I always think of Shane west even though he’s not blonde idk why
    Wayde – Tom hardy. Yum.

  32. Kat

    Ian McShane as Al, he would be wonderful!

  33. Samantha Gilmore

    Jessica Chastain as Rachel
    Johnny Depp as Al while I was reading ever after when Al was drunk he just immediately shifted from what I was picturing to Johnny Depp

  34. Thank you for a wonderfull series :) I would love to see Emma Stone as Rachel. Rachel has a great sence of humor and so does Emma :)

    And also it would be awesome to see Matt Bomet as Kiston :) drop dead gorgeous!

  35. Megan

    So I’m currently reading “Ever After,” and I was shocked to realize that all of a sudden I’m picturing MICHAEL FASSBENDER as Trent!! I’m not sure where that came from, but I could totally see it!

  36. Kathy Meeks

    And for casting.. I say definitely some really talented unknowns who truly fit the part not only physically but in spirit.

  37. Kathy Meeks

    Please make The Hollows series into a movie! I think with all of the characters it would work much better as a movie instead of a tv series. We are seriously lacking in good movies & I think The Hollows would be great! I read about 4 books a month & The Hollows has by far been my favorite series to date. Just got Ever After today & can’t tell you how happy I am to have another book in the series. I was so sad when I finshed the last book. Again, please make the movie!

  38. I think it needs to be new, unknown actors. No one I can think of currently manages to fit how I see the characters in my mind.

  39. Maria kilpatrick

    Or Debra Ann Woll could be good for Rachel she’s got that bad ass/klutz thing going and that how I picture Rachel

  40. Maria kilpatrick

    Alexander skarsgard for Trent

    • OMG thats exactly what I thought but then I thought, maybe that would be too much since he already plays a character from a fantasy series of novels. I can just picture it though and he would be PERFECT.

    • Sara

      I think of Alexander for kist. I know he already plays a vampire but he’s soo sexy and so is kist.

  41. angel

    Woo! it would be sooo great.. well mm… i have a crazy list of beautiful actors who i want to share …
    -Rachel: Scarlett Johansson (really petite one) or Olivia Wilde (beauties)
    -Ivy: Maggie Q (fits perfect for me) or Devon Aoki
    -Jenks: Chord Overstreet (a youg men of course)
    -Trent: Channing Tatum (yummi) or Alex Pettyfer (ohmy!)
    -Ceri: Sara paxton or lena kaligaris
    -Kisten: Wenthworth Miller or Justin Hartley (justin!!)
    -Quen: Lenny Kravits!

    well hope you like it and get fun of it =D!
    thanks for the amazing books!!!!!

    • Rosslyn

      Maggie Q would be perfect for Ivy…don’t know about Channing for Trent, I don’t know that he can pull off the sauce thing. Stunning though he is

  42. Geoff keller

    Did some thinking. Leo Decaprio for either Kisten or Trent; I’ve envisioned both being blondes. Piper Perabo (from Covert Affairs) for Rachel; she’s got this innocent girl look in her eyes, but a good fighter. They could pick up unknowns I think for Ivy and Jenks..

  43. Geoff keller

    I watched an episode of Criminal Minds entitled “Masterpiece”, which had Jason Alexander with long blond hair and a goatee. That look is how I’ve always envisioned Trent Kalamack. Pauly Perette would be intriguing as Ivy I think, or Cote DePablo as Rachel. I happen to agree with Kim Harrison that Piscary would be best played by Arnold Vosloo or some other bald white guy.

  44. Kelly Hu is Ivy…all the way.
    Alicia Witt for Rachel…

    Since I love these two the best…I don’t really have an opinion about the others. =)

    VV

  45. brenda

    I definitely see Matt Lanter as Kisten. Tom Felton would be a great jenks, as he can do the attitude! As Rachel, I see the actress who plays Rizzoli in Rizzola and Isles, she’s not a redhead but that can be dealt with!

  46. Sandz

    can we take Tom Felton for Trent? aaand Johnny Depp for Al? They fit so perfectly!

  47. OK. So I’ve been picking these out on and off for over a year. I had picks for many, but some, when I googled the name others had come up with—were too perfect! So I had to steal them for my list.
    Here are the stolen ones: Tilda Swanson for Newt. Hugh Jackman for David. Devon Aoki for Ceri. Mark Valley for Rynn Cormel.

    Rachel- Amanda Righetti
    Ivy- Olivia Wilde (I was concrete on the Idea of Olivia Wilde, until I saw someone pair her as Maggie Q with Jamie Chung as Erica. -love love love, but will put my originals on here too)
    Al- Michael Fassbender
    Jenks- Alex Pettyfer
    Kisten- Matt Bomer
    Ceri- Devon Aoki
    Nick- Milo Ventimiglia
    David- Hugh Jackman!
    Keasley- Michael Caine
    Trent- Justin Hartley
    Newt- Tilda Swanson
    Matalina- Laura Vandervoort
    Edden- Dwayne Johnson
    Marshal- Coby Bell
    Alice (Rachel’s Mom)- Julie Walters (The Weasley’s mother in HP)
    Piscary- Paul Sorvino
    Erica- Bella Thorn (Or Jamie Chung)
    Leprechaun- Kiernan Shipka
    Skimmer- Kristen Bell
    Pierce- Sebastian Stan (plays Mad Hatter in Once Upon A Time)
    Mia- Allison Mack
    Rynn Cormel- Mark Valley
    Minias- James Frain
    Quen- Liam Neeson
    Glenn- James Rhodes
    Stan Lee- Simon Baker
    Ku’Sox- Paul Bettany
    Belle- Leelee Sobieski
    Tom Banson- Adrian Grenier
    Ford- Richard Speight Jr

  48. Oiver

    I always see Lucy Lui as Ivy.and Hudson Leick as Ceri. The others I’m kind of wishy washy on. I do like the idea of Mr Depp as Al and Morgan Freeman as Keasly though.

  49. Ashland

    I was watching Law & Order and I saw this chick and I thought “Dude, she might be a neato Rachel if they actually went through with this.”

    What do ya’ll think? Her name is Christiane Seidel (Apparently was in Boardwalk Empire) and she is VERY ginger.

    http://christianeseidel.com/wp/

    There’s a specific picture on this website where she’s in a black gothic like outfit.

  50. I’m thinking Maggie Q for Ivy. She has the elegance to pull off the roll. Rachel LeFevre or Emma Stone are both decent choices for our twitchy witch. And Fassbender for Al would be great!

  51. melissa

    I like Joaquin Phoenix for al.

  52. Thirza

    Hi,
    for me, probably Jessica Alba as Rachel. I loved her in Dark Angel. It`s her favourite character, too. Maybe, she hasn`t got the same humour like Rachel (??!). But she`s got definitly something, that Rachel Morgan has: she`s tough, kind of feministe, and I think, she would never put something on her, by a man. She`s not a bitch ;P
    The actresses on imdb: Maggie Q?! Maybe “kind of”, I see Ivy. Maybe Jill Hennessy (Crossing Jordan) could be Rachel`s mom?! ;) She`s also kinda crazy, `don`t mean that insulting!! Ha, I don`t know, just a thought.

    Greets,

    Thirza

  53. Hi Ms. Kim-I nominate Morgan Freeman for Keasly-I see him everytime Keasley is mentioned,-and definitely Jaclyn Swedborg for Ivy(She’s Playmate of the Year and rides a hog), and there is only one Rachel- Milla Jovovitch!

    • Gerry Sheldon

      I’m none too sure about Jaclyn Swedberg as Ivy but I thoroughly agree with Milla Jovovitch as Rachel — I thought of her as I read other suggestions, and she’s even a kick ass martial artist in her own right!

  54. For al, I have to put in alan tudyk, he is brilliant, and can play so many different roles, the one I am thinking of is alpha from dollhouse.

  55. Steve Garris

    These would be my casting picks Shay Mitchell as Ivy 
    Emma Stone as Rachel
    Chris Pine as Trent
    Johnny Depp as Al
    Andrew Garfeild as Jenks

    Im willing to compermise on Jenks and Ivys casting but the other for me are hard set.

  56. In my mind I always picture Johnny Depp as Al. Johnny Depp himself is an interesting character and would fully emerge into his role. For the role of Rachel I honestly don’t mind any red head buuut the one that sticks out to me is Deborah Ann Woll from true blood she is bad to the bone. For Ceri I do like Anne Hathaway.

    • Megan

      Ali Larter-Rachel
      Alt Rachels:
      Milla Jovovich
      Pauley Perrette
      Cote De Paublo or Daniela Ruah-Ivy

      I felt all 3 girls are highly talented actors who well look like adults. I loved watching Paublo and Ruah on NCIS and NCIS:LA where they’re definitely crowd favorites. And Ali Larter did an amazing job as Claire Redfield in Resident Evil, and has played in Heroes and Legally Blonde, which tells me she’s got the strength to carry a film.

      As far as alternates Jovovich carried the Resident Evil franchise easily. And Perrette who plays Abby in NCIS is definitely a favorite. More of a gothic look for Rachel she’s still got a cute vibe to her, which would offset the more dangerous one of Ivy and others.

  57. Blake

    I picture Rachel with much wilder hair. Like Rachele Lafevre. Maybe redder hair and I think it’s almost spot on.

  58. James R. Fox

    Hi Ms Kim-its Jim from Warren. I think Ariany Celeste (really Ariany Lopez) is out of the running-punched out her room mate. She made bail, but roomie is threatening all kinds of stuff so far, so Ariany might not be available. In her place I nominate Jaclyn Swedborg, Playmate of the year for 2012. She is dark,rides a hog,does lots of physical stuff.(The girls boss Dana White of the UFC says roomie was warned before about not keeping her left up)

  59. Sandypants

    Michael Fassbender would be an awesome Al. He’s so schmexy!

    • Audra

      Totally agree! He is who I’ve pictured as Al and didn’t even know it until I Googled Fassbender’s name.

    • candy

      i agree with you about fassbender playing Al. a lot of different websites keep saying johnny depp but i really don’t see it

  60. Speedi

    I find it extraordinarily difficult to find the perfect actors for the Hollows cast. Uh! So hard. I have to say that I did see a few actors from other people’s lists that I agree with. This is what I have come up with: Hugh Jackman for David, Tilda Swinton for Newt, Morgan Freeman for Keasley and Johnny Depp for Al. The rest of the characters would have to cast with new, unknown actors, since the Hollows would be a fresh new series of movies. It would work the best I think.

  61. Jams R. Fox

    Hi Ms. Kim-its Jim from Warren. Why has no-one mentioned Taryn Manning from Hawaii 5-0 for Rachel?. She’s got the slender build. And another vote for Ariany Celeste for Ivy,she has the talents(Can’t get the image of Ivy in Blood Work out of my mind sorry) and talent sells! I think Johnny Depp is perfect for Al.

    • Jams R. Fox

      Hi Ms. Kim-as long as we are putting out the best people for a part,the best Newt would be Jaye Davidson.You know played Dil in the Crying Game, and Ra in Stargate.He has gone back to his job at the day spa as he hates drag, but he might come out of retirement for a good part.

  62. James R. Fox

    Hi Ms. Kim-its Jim from Warren. How about Leryn Franco from Paraguy for Ivy? She is a world champion athlete going for the Olympic gold this summer(she already has World Games gold)in the javelin throw, and is widely known for her incredible beauty as well as her ability to spear things. you know,Ivy brings down a fleeing villan with a perfectly thrown pool cue or something.

  63. Tara

    I’m not sure about the other characters yet, but I picture Lindsay Price as Ivy :)

    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0697010/

  64. Zoe

    Hello

    Back again… I had to come back after watching Howling Reborn to say…

    What about Landon Liboiron for Jenks? Sorry if anyone has suggested him already! He’s rather tasty, looks young enough to pull it off, has rather nice legs :D (unless that was a stunt double) and the guy has the most beautiful eyes that I have seen in a while!

    http://img.poptower.com/pic-36661/landon-liboiron.jpg?d=600

    (forgive the link but I couldn’t decide from the google images which one to put on here!)
    x

  65. Katie

    I love reading all the comments and suggestions for whom should play who (or who should play whom or whatever :))…but I really want to know, are they moving forward on this? I would LOVE an update.

    • James R. Fox

      Hi Katie-its Jim from Warren-on her last post on the subject.I believe Ms. Kim said that she will hear in July if CW has picked it up. She said CW is notoriously slow about notifications.

  66. annapiendl

    A friend pointed out someone that would make a perfect Kisten….William Levy. Done and done!

  67. Zoe

    Hi,

    What about Benedict Cumberbatch for Al?
    I think he could be a good Al :)

  68. Nick- Grant Gustin
    Ivy- Dichen Lachman or Grace Park
    Rachel- Emma Stone or Allison Scagliotti
    Kisten- Ryan Kwanten
    Jenks- Thomas Dekker
    Matalina- Amy Acker
    Quen- Harry Lennix or The Rock
    Trent- Jamie Bamber
    Al- James Callis

  69. I’m for Johnny Depp as Al. While I think there are some very good choices here, I can’t help but wonder why most people think of an older actor for Al. Anyway, it’s fun to think about and I can’t wait to hear more about the upcoming tv show.

  70. Al – Jonathan Rhys Meyers or James Marsters
    Rachel – Jane Levy or Allison Scagliotti
    Kisten – Taylor Kitsch, maybe. I’m still undecided
    Ivy – Kate Beckinsale

    • Talulah

      i love the idea of jonathan rhys meyers as al.. he’s so hot! *-* but i think kate beckinsale is too old for ivy. she’s almost 40..

    • James R. Fox

      Hi Talula its Jim from warren Unfortunately you are right. That is why us males are cheering for Arrany Celeste or Gina Carrano. Both are models,both are MMA,(Gina held a belt at one point and has a wicked right, and Arrany has modeled for Playboy and is a playmate.) Arrany is a good all-in fighter.punches,kicks knees etc,and can do arm curls with 50 lb in each hand. Also both have acting experience.

  71. as for Ivy—lucy liu cristoper walken as al betty white as rachels mom when i have coffe ill post more

  72. oooook…I’ve read through everything and here are my thoughts:

    Maggie Q – IVY
    Alexander Skarsgaard – KISTIN
    Jackson Rathbone – JENKS
    Ginnifer Goodwin – MATALINA
    Christopher B Duncan – GLENN
    William Forsyth – EDDEN
    Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson – DENON
    Morgan Freeman – KEASLEY (c’mon, aren’t we all picturing him ;-)
    Miranda Otto – CERI (after seeing her in LOTR I can’t picture anyone else)
    Julian McMahan – TRENT (yes, he’s too old, and too un-blonde. I can’t help it- that’s who I picture. I know it’s wrong, lol!)
    Jared Padalecki – NICK (someone mentioned Tom Welling, which would work too)
    Kenneth Branaugh – AL (this is who I pictured when Kim describes the British gentleman get-up) <–though I also like the idea of Gary Oldman bc he's so insanely versatile!
    Tilda Swinton – NEWT
    aaaaaaand RACHEL…. when I first started reading these books, I was picturing someone resembling Alyssa Milano (w/red hair of course), but after getting through them all, well… I want to play Rachel Morgan, LOL!!!!! I even just did a photo shoot in honor of the series. BUT if the case cannot be made for a relatively unknown actress (me, lol), then I would be happy with Rachele Lafevre or Alicia Witt.

    • James R. Fox

      Hi Camille-its Jim from Warren.Have you ever thought of Lindsey Lohan for Rachel. She is a natural redhead when sober-we’d have to keep her away from adult beverages and those funny pills, and any cute girls(she is out of the closet,unfortunately her girlfriend beats her like her dad did) but she is a good actress and very good at sarcasm (see Mean Girls). Since she fits the bill except for the chest department(But she can use gaffer tape like Carrie Fisher did in Star Wars) I think it might work.

    • Jim – no. absolutely not. that makes me die inside just thinking about it. She would ruin Rachel. No offense meant to you, as you are entitled to your opinion…if that is how you envision Rachel, far be it from me to tear down you interpretation. But for me? NO. No. A thousand times, NO.

    • I did, however, like your previous suggestion of Arianny Celeste for Ivy…she would work just as well as Maggie Q :-)

  73. Anima Wittum

    Just a few people I thought of after going through the suggestions above:

    Ivy: Liv Taylor (not that I am a fan of her, but she’s got the oval face …)
    Trent: Alex Pettyfer (don’t know Trents a hard one to choose o.O)
    Kisten: Ian Sommerhalder (with blond hair^^)

    wasn’t able to find ‘my’ Rachel yet … still looking for her =)

  74. ann

    Rachel – Alicia Witt (she’s already in a series but her looks are perfect) OR
    Lyndsy Fonseca
    Ivy – Mylene Jampanoi
    Jenks – Alex Pettyfer

    • Kara

      OMG…you are so on point. I googled all 4 you have listed and you are spot on about Ivy & Jenks and Lyndsy as Rachel. Totally what I had in my head!!!

  75. kim

    Since it is going to tv, i’m totally thinking that i love the idea of these guys:
    Rachel: Amanda Righetti
    Ivy: Maggie Q
    Jenks: Alex Pettyfer
    Trent: Simon Baker
    AL: Kim Coates
    Ceri: Dianna Agron
    Nick: Jared Padalecki

    • kim

      Almost forgot poor Kisten i believe Taylor Kitsch would be just the right hottie for the job.

    • Nicole

      Ok, so have been–obviously–out of the loop for awhile! They’re doing your book as a TV show?!! Who has it? I liked True Blood for awhile, but I’m now starting to dislike it with capitals–don’t like how they’ve really got her as someone weak. They better not do that to Rachel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Shannon

      Simon Baker as Trent?!?!? no way. not at all as gorgeous as I picture that man. I always think of Gabriel Aubry when I read about Trent. mmm mm. Now he is the elf of my dreams.
      My perfect Rachel is Rachel Nichols (look up the pics of her as a redhead). She seems to have the perfect amount of spunk!
      And Tom Hiddleston would make a perfect Al.

      Kim, I know you thought up these people in your mind but you’re just casting them all wrong!! ;)

    • kim

      I will take your Trent but thats just because i found it soooo hard to cast him and Gabriel (YUMMY) yeah he could be Trent ;)
      I love that were both going for that weird, strange (but kinda sexy) looking guys for Al ;) I do hope they pick the right girl for Rachel as your right she will need the right amount of spunk but without totally annoying us.

  76. Chrisy

    How about Marián Aguilera for Rachel?

  77. hopnholla

    I know this has nothing to do with casting actors, but I REALLY think Celebrity Skin by Hole should somehow be included in the series. Just saying.

  78. Staci

    I know outta everyone I’ve thought of for Al, Johnny Depp ONLY person that could pull off that kind of character and crazy for the role.

  79. Amy

    After watching several episodes of Lost girl on SyFy I could see the guy who plays Dyson(Kris Holden-Ried) as either Kisten or David and then the girl who plays Kenzi (Kseni Solo) as Ceri. I am still not sure of who would play some of the others but still thinking on it.

  80. MARCUS

    Don’t know her name. but I believe the woman that plays Abby on NCIS , with red hair, would be perfect for Rachel Morgan. My favorite fictional character…

  81. S heger

    It may seem strange, but my friends and I agree that Al would be masterfully played by Marilyn Manson.

    • Karl Poff

      Sorry to disagree while I like his music cant picture him as Al, the only person I could see playing Al is Johnny Depp.

  82. Aaron

    Mylène Jampanoï is the perfect Ivy. I can’t imagine anyone could be better.

    As an added bonus, she’s in TV.

    http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x31/misscontest/mylene_jampanoi/mylene_jampanoi_18.jpg

  83. James R. Fox

    I have two for Ivy Gina Carrano, who is a model,aMMA women’s fighter, and has a Movie”Hardwired” coming out this spring I think it is. I also nominate Arianny Celeste, who is in MMA,looks vaguely Asian,is a model,has her own t.v. show, and did a spread in the Nov 2010 Playboy so you can check out her talents(BOTH of them). She can do arm curls with 50 lb in each hand,slender as she is

  84. Katie

    I have MY perfect Rachel and have thought so since I first saw her: Allison Scagliotti. Look her up!

  85. James R. Fox

    Hi Ms Kim-Definitely Jessie Gomez Maxim Mag’s bikini champ of the year. She’s tall,vaguely asian(chinese mom) and wins full shirt contests like Ivy.and she doesnt even wear a shirt(Or bikini)

  86. Ginger

    Don’t know her name but the woman off Hawaii 5-0 would be a good Ivy

  87. SSJ

    Jane Levy (red read from the new show Suburgatory) is definitely Rachel I think…and if not her then an older version of her.

    BTW, am I the only one who visualizes Anderson Cooper as Trent?

  88. Lindsay H

    I’ve been thinking on Al for a really long time (bouncing back and forth between a young Gary Oldman and Johnny Depp) but I think I found the perfect match:
    Al = Jonathan Rhys Meyers (aka Henry VIII from the Tudors; has the english accent and everything! And can be plenty scary when need be)

  89. Raffaela Wais for Ivy. No asian influence there, she’s not even an actress, just a competitor in a German version of American Idol, but she kind of fits my own personal image of Ivy.

  90. James R. Fox

    Hi Yelsha-its Jim from Warren. You are so right! I never thought of her.

  91. Yelhsa

    You guys, there is no perfect Ivy. However, there is a kick ass, dark haired, tough as they come beauty who is out there. I’m talking about the face of women’s MMA! Crush from American Gladiators, you can’t forget that booty shake! Not to mention she was placed at #16 in Maxim’s Hot 100 list! Her latest achievement being the lead role as female, bad ass, whip everyone’s butts in Haywire to come out in theaters January 20th. I’m talking about none other than Gina Carano.
    I know her personality isn’t the same. I know she doesn’t look even a little asian, but you’ve got to give that girl some credit. She knows how to kick ass, and look good doing it! She’s getting some acting under her belt, and if The Hollows were to be made into a movie, she could pull it off!
    Besides, look in her purse. She may have a bag full of makeup in there, but she only uses about three things. Can’t come much closer to natural beauty with celebrities these days!

  92. May

    Fiona Xie Wan Yu for Ivy. I just think her looks suit who Ivy is :) and she doesn’t look too pretty to kick ass :P

  93. Martin

    In my mind:
    Rachel – Emma Stone or Deborah Ann Woll its hard i like both but to stay realistic, i dont think emma stone would do a tv show so i prefer Deborah Ann Woll
    Ivy – Michaela Conlin the first time i was reading of Ivy she was my Ivy … ( and she did a great job by the way ;D)
    Jenks – Jackson Rathbone
    Al – Johnny Depp ( im not sure why so much people use Johnny Depp for all ^^ )

  94. SandyPants

    Rachel- Deborah Ann Moll

    Nick- Zachary Quinto

    Al- Christopher Meloni

    Trent- Jared Padalecki

    Jenks- Chad Michael Murray

    Matalina- Hayden Panetierre

    Ceri – Evan Rachel Wood

    Ivy- Davon Akoi

    These are a few of my picks. It’s kinda what I see in my head when reading, I just change hair and eye color, and sometime height mentally of course. =)

  95. Sandy Pants

    Davon Akoi for Ivy =)

  96. ioskjf

    Olivia Wilde for Ivy!!!!!

  97. James R. Fox

    Hi Ms. Kim-That sounds good.I don,t Follow T.V. all that much,,but if you don’t want has-been movie guys,we might look at the soaps,they always have people looking to move to bigger parts.

  98. Diva

    Time to revive this page, or what?

    Looking back through past posts it seems that a good many suggestions are for movie actors/actresses. I don’t see any of them taking on tv parts at this time, especially not the bigger name folks. So, with a look to actors/actresses who mostly work in tv already (or have in the past), what are some good candidates for our fave Hollows residents?

    I think Bridget Regan (formerly of Legend of the Seeker) would make a good Rachel. She was a brunette with chemically straightened hair for LOTS but she’s a naturally curly haired redhead from what I understand.

  99. Jessica

    Danneel Harris as Rachel
    Kevin Zegers as Trent
    Kyle Schmid as Kisten

    That’s all I got.

  100. Amanda_K

    I saw this picture and just had to share it with you. Tilda Swinton makes perfect Newt!

    http://regent.blogs.com/.a/6a00d8341ca4b653ef015433a7177f970c-320wi

  101. Kobie

    Correction:

    David: Hugh Jackman

  102. Kobie

    First: People you have to consider AGE. I love Jennifer Connely as Ivy…in 1992. Jennifer is 40 years old!! Michelle Pfeifer as Rachel….Really? Michelle’s gonna be collecting Social Security in a few years!! Come on. These are 20 or early 30 something year olds with a some exceptions…

    Rachel – First name that came to mind was Isla Fisher. But she just wouldn’t stick. The I saw ‘Zombieland’ with Emma Stone and she did. (no doubt about it. you don’t get her, you don’t have a movie)

    Ivy – Megan Fox (I know she’s supposed to have asian features but everything else screams Megan!!) I thought about Kristen Kreuk. She definitely has the look but not the physical or sexual presence that Megan brings to the table.

    Jenks – Gerard Butler (The only guy the comes to mind that can be intimidating at 4″ tall)

    Matalina – Nichole Kidman

    Kisten – Chris Pine or Alex Pettyfer

    David – Zack Galifianakas

    Piscary – James Gandolfini

    Skimmer – Kristen Bell

    Keasley – Morgan Freeman. Came to mind first moment.

    Trent – Very hard call. At first I saw Mathew Mcconaughey. Then I saw Tom Cruise. Then I saw Orlando Bloom (but then isn’t he just Legolas in a different movie?) Then I saw Hugo Weaving (too old and same as Orlando) I say go with Mathew.

    Quinn – Jimmy Jean-Louis (The Haitian from ‘Heroes’)

    Al – I’ve never seen anyone but Paul Bettany as AL. Same as Emma, perfect.

    Newt – Had no idea at all. Then I saw someone mention Tilda Swinton. Golden.

    Minias – It’s a bit role and doesn’t really matter. Though Johnny Depp would be cinema gold it would be a waste of 10 minutes of screen time and he would absolutely steal the whole movie. Use the director or Kim.

    Ceri – Melissa Rauch “Big Bang Theory”

    Nick – Jessie Eisenberg (nothing wrong with a little “Zombieland” subtext)

    Glen – Morris Chestnut

    Edden – Stephen Lang “Avatar”

  103. Shae

    For some odd reason, when I first read about Trent, I pictured a much younger version of Anderson Cooper. The blue eyes, pale hair…AC’s ears even look a little elf-like.

    Alicia Witt sort of resembles the Rachel I picture.

  104. Carolyn Peabody

    okay people! i have a LOT of free time! i made a video on youtube of a cast list that i think fits the characters descriptions! some people i skipped because i couldnbt think of anybody for them and other stuffs like that! if u wanna check it out my username is ThatsWhatHeSays and if u search that in the searchbar it should come up! please leave a commment on it too please :)

  105. izzybella

    Someone upthread mentioned Paul Bettany for Trent. I like the idea of him better as Al. I think he could really pull that off. Agreed with Emma Stone as Rachel-she’d be fantastic. And I like the Ivy Aaron picked Mylene something? Fantastic from the photographs anyway.

  106. James R. Fox

    I say that if you want live actors for the cgi,go with:
    Gong Li -Ivy’s mom
    Megan Fox-Ivy (We want a hottie here)
    Milla Jovovitch – Rachel (She can really get her demon on)
    Brad Pitt – Jenks (we Know he’s a lover)

  107. VICKI GREENE

    Maybe I’m gettin’ older but when I read a Hallows book I see Billy Zane as Trent Kalamack – beautiful, aloof and superior but damaged. The ghost boyfriend (sorry I have a mental block right now-3rd 12hour midnight!!) I always pictured him as Ryan Cartwright from Alphas/Bones. Al, I always thought of someone very big and overweight. And, next definitely Jensen Ackles for Nick. No matter how old you are, you can always recognize the bad boy. Rachael should be someone new, young, beautiful and tough.

  108. James R. Fox

    Hi Ms Kim-Its Jim from Warren-I say AGAIN-make the Hollows Series a set of video games. Better yet,have James Cameron do it like he did Avatar.In either case, have your pencilists supervise the cels. Since they do your GN’s they know what you want, and they have a body if work published here in the States to give them chops.They will do you proud,and you can sit back and let Alex and Zander count the cash.

  109. Carolyn Peabody

    okay I’m pretty good at coming up with cast ideas haha

    Rachel: mila kunis
    ivy:jamie chung
    trent:jensen ackles
    jenks:jackson rathbone
    al:mark sheppard

    these were the only characters i thought of……..

  110. I’ve noticed a couple of mine match some others but this would be my line up… I wanted to post picture links as to how I would see them looking in their roll but couldn’t figure out how >_<. Anyway enjoy and let me know what you think ^_^ ~~Lynda

    Rachel – Rachelle Lefevre
    Ivy – Shu Qi
    Jenks – Alex Pettyfer
    Kisten – Kellan Lutz
    Trent -Jared Padalecki
    Al – Dustin Clare
    Newt – Tilda Swinton

  111. LauraM

    Big Al = Michael Fassbender

    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1055413/

    Just played as Magneto in the recent Xmen: First Class movie

  112. I haven’t got everyone, as my visions for these characters are really specific, but I do have some that I would like to share, haha!

    Rachel – Rachel Lefevre
    Ivy – Jeon Ji-Hyun
    Jenks – Dane Cook
    Newt – Tilda Swinton
    Trent – Chris Pine
    Al – Luke Goss

  113. I can’t help it, every time I think of Kisten I see Kiefer Sutherland from his “Lost Boys” and “Stand By Me” days.

  114. JoshH22

    I would have to remind everyone that jenks could just be CGI or costume effected and voiced who i would pick Damon Wayans he has that
    small stature yet deaming voice.
    As for big Al remember they would most likely do the first two books together and he just transforms himself into different people so it be hard to pick an actor for him.
    Rachel-Emma Stone or Ashley Greene
    Ivy-Megan Fox or Famke Janessen
    Nick-Hands down Jared Leto
    Trent-I imagine him being Shane McMahon (WWE)
    Kisten-Cody Rhodes (WWE)
    Piscary-Giles Marini
    Eden- The Guy played the Captain on Monk
    Glenn-Chace Crawford

  115. Antonio

    Back in September, I put together a casting of 25 characters with 2 pictures each, and a short video of the top 5 characters and put it on one of my blog pages…WOW! I’ve had over 2,500 views since then. I cleaned it up a bit and added two more characters:

    Ku’Sox :twisted:
    Vivian :-D

    http://antoniomyblog.wordpress.com/2010/09/23/rachel-morgan-book-seriescharacters/

  116. Holly

    Bridget Regan – Rachel
    Oliva Munn- Ivy
    Cristina Cox- Vivian
    Hayden Christensen- Jenks
    Gerard Butler- David
    Ryan Phillipe- Kisten
    Johnny Depp- Al
    Jude Law- Trent

  117. Misha

    I’m sure some of these people have already been mentioned, but -

    Rachel – Annalynne McCord or Lyndsy Fonseca (obviously you would have to imagine them with red hair…at one point i was thinking Bridget Regan for Rachel…But Annalynne has the hair that can be wild at one point and sleek the next)

    Ivy – Sandrine Holt
    http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3066/2423548749_f937be55bf.jpg

    Trent – Trevor Donovan
    (find a picture with him in a suit and that’s close to how I picture Trent. Ha! Did it for you. lol.)
    http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5018/5479585699_afb13b5a25.jpg

    Jenks – Kellan Lutz
    http://www.mtv.com/news/photos/h/hollywood_life_party_090608/01_kellan_lutz.jpg

    Ceri – Adrianne Policki

    Nick – Justin Bartha or Chase Crawford

    Kisten – Cam Gigandet? (I don’t know…what do you think?)

    Al – Jason Isaacs or Julian McMahon (was the way i was leaning, but someone mentioned Alan Tudyk and I can see him as Al also…)

    If I come up with more, I guess I’ll post them up…for now *shrug* … it is what it is.

  118. Jethro

    Rachael- Amanda Righetti or Paget Brewster
    Ivy- Cote De Pablo
    Jenks- Jensen Ackles
    Matalina- Alona Tal
    Ceri- AJ Cook
    Algaliarept- Mark Sheppard
    Newt- Beth Riesgraf
    Minias- Richard Speight Jr
    Piscary- Julian Richings
    Glenn- Mark Harmon (maybe)

    Thats what I could think of off the top of my head. I think it wouldd make for an interesting cast. Ill add more when I think of them.

  119. Romeomffn

    Maggie Q as Ivy, Lyndsey Fonseca as Rachel, Evana Lynch as Ceri, and Kristen Stewart as Skimmer.

  120. Teri

    Emma Stone for Rachel
    Kristen Kreuk for Ivy
    Jeremy Sumpter for Jenks
    Tom Welling for Nick
    Johnny Depp for Al
    Hilary Duff for Skimmer
    Chad Michael Murry for Kisten
    Mark Harmon for Captain Edden
    Penn Badgley for Glenn
    Morgan Freeman for Keasley
    Hugh Jackman as David

  121. Josephine

    Kim Harrison is a genious I love her books. If The Hollows was ever made for TV or the big screen then you would need a pretty young cast. I bet Kim Harrison has a lot more tales to tell in the series.

    This is who I would like to cast in the roles:

    IVY -I quite like megan fox for Ivy she is so sultry and sexy.

    RACHEL – Lindsey Lohan. If she cleaned herself and her behavior up she
    would make a pretty good Rachel. She would probably give Ivy
    exactly what she wants too LOL. Leighton Meester could probably
    pull it off but she is a bit on the short side or Evan Rachel Wood.

    Nick – Shia LaBeouf

    Trent – Ed Westwick. His Chuck Bass character on Gossip Girl has all the
    arrogance of trent. I think he would look weird though with blonde
    hair.

    AL – Ed Westwick. Could excel in the smug department. (I need
    another Trent)

    CERI – Kristen Bell (quite sassy). Or Dianna Agron from Glee.

    TRISTEN – Chace Crawford.

    JENKS – Chris Lowell/ No im stuck i have no idea

    NEWT – Joan Cusack. (easy)

    DAVID – Hugh Jackman or Mark Salling (Puck Off Glee)

    GOOD GOD! Its so hard …….I give Up LOL

  122. Amanda

    Maggie Q = The perfect Ivy. I’ve thought so ever since I started watching Nikita.

  123. kelly

    I always think of Ivy as Michaela Conlin bc I had trouble creating an image of her in my mind I think my subconscious just picked her bc her fictional character Angela on Bones is bisexual, half asian/white, somewhat similar features and frame to Ivy (hopefully my html skills don’t suck to much and the pics post here)

  124. MK

    I’m not sure if I missed it but Emma Stone as Rachel is hands down the best person. Everyone keeps trying to cast people that are way too old for her role. and too sultry/sexy. Emma Stone is the perfect mix of kick ass/clumsy and cute that Rachel’s character requires.. Plus we already know she can do redhair… I don’t know, she might be a lil too tall though… You need to be able to picture the character smiling and simultaneously calling some one a “freaking bastard” (like Jonathan in book three) not a lot of actresses can pull of Rachel’s quirks but I think Emma stone could.

  125. Tiffany

    I believe Neil Patrick Harris would make a perfect Trent.

  126. Tora

    Shantel Van Santen as Rachel.
    Myléne Jampanoï as Ivy.
    Tom Felton for Jenks, maybe.
    Dominic Purcell as Al, definitely.
    Emily de Ravin for Ceri
    Neil Jackson as Trent
    Ben Barnes as Minias
    Tyrese Gibson for Glenn
    Kevin Zegers as Pierce
    Dakota Fanning for Mattie
    Viggo Morgensen as David?

    I’m sure all of these have been said before, but just puttin’ my two cents in. ::)

  127. Shandi

    I would love to see Helena Bonham Carter as Alice :D

  128. Stephanie

    I know if the Hollows were ever made into a movie it would never match up but, I would love to see the characters on screen. These are the people I can picture playing some of the roles.

    Rachel- Emma Stone or Bonnie Wright(Ginny Weasely. As long as she gets some acting lessons! lol)

    Kisten-Chord Overstreet ( Sam from Glee. Give him a few years and a haircut. lol)

    Ivy- Megan Fox (cliche maybe but I think she could pull off the attitude)

    Trent- Neil Jackson ( think someone else put this but I completely agree)

    Jenks- Toby Hemingway (from Covenant)

    Nick- Tom Welling could pull off that jackass

    Ceri – Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood HP)

    • Teri

      I agree with you about Tom Welling as Nick and Emma Stone as Rachel, but I think Kristen Kreuk for Ivy. I don’t know who the people you choose are.

  129. Aaron Irwin

    Hi guys

    I had kind of pictured Jenks as Owen Wilson, and hes played small before in Night at the Museum

    http://www.imdb.com/media/rm1553891840/nm0005562

  130. Amanda_K

    What about Neil Jackson as Al? He’s good actor, young enough, with beautiful voice and british accent. He played evil characters (as Marcus Van Sciver in Blade: The Series) and he’s good at it. If not Al, maybe Trent then. His hair colour would match and he looks good in suit.

    I don’t like this idea about the movie. These books are soo great and I love them to death. I have a feeling that film would spoil everything I had imagined. Anyway it’s impossible to find actors that would match them wholly.
    But that’s irrelevant, there’s some pics of this actor:

    *And sorry for my english, I still practice. Alas in my country there are only three books from Hollows series translated and I’m not a patient person, so I read them in original version. But at least it’s a very strong motivation to learn english :D and to be honest I found reading them in english more entertaining than reading them in my native tongue. Love you Kim

  131. Jenhifer

    And Marshall Allman would make a good Nick.

  132. Jenhifer

    I think that Al should be played by MarK Sheppard. He does sexy demon so well.

  133. Sandra

    Hey, I watched a Terrible movie last night on HBO- “The Final Destination.” It was god awful…but there is an actress in it that could TOTALLY be Rachel. Her name is Shantel VanSanten. This is completely how Rachel looks in my mind’s eye.

    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1416900/

  134. shayne

    im not sure she could pull it off but debra messing has the perfect look for rachel in my opinion

    http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2659948544/nm0005226
    http://www.imdb.com/media/rm325688064/nm0005226

  135. Grace

    Wow guys, the biggest thing that bugs me about this list is that Al is NOT supposed to appear old. Johny Depp is 47. While Al does change shape, he is supposed to appear YOUNG most of the time. NOT 47. Dx

  136. Gwendylan

    I always pictured Victor Raider-Wexler as piscary and if anyone was into the Angel series and remembers when Angel took over Wolfram and Hart. Episode 2 of Season 5 Victor Raider-Wexler is the necromancer spike and Angel fight Hansley. After reading the hollows series I couldn’t get him as Piscary out of my head.

  137. Rachel

    Well, A TV show would be a great idea, honestly, I think Kim should just throw out a few auditions and hire new talent, people who fit the characters. Even though Johnny Depp is prolly the only person I can think of for playing Al. Just because Depp is a GREAT actor, no matter what people say about him being only Jack Sparrow. He is a genius and plays all his roles to the full extent. Algaliarept played by Depp would be wondrous. I think I could only trust him t play favorite fictional character ever… but that’s just me o.o;

    • BadGirlChels

      I totally agree, a show sounds better than a movie. That way you don’t run into the issue of “I loved the book, but the movie changed/cut out too much of the story”. With a show, there’s more opportunity to show more of the little details that movies cut. Johnny Depp would make the BEST Al! He can definitely pull off the many sides of all (angry, passionate, sarcastic, haunted, moody, sexy, ect)

  138. Aaron

    I was completely unconvinced by the choices for Ivy until I saw Mylène Jampanoï — she is PERFECT!

    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1227864/

  139. The biggest problem with getting the right actors is the height issue, no pun intended. Most actors are actually on the short side so that narrows the choices when you’re going for vertical accuracy. Milla Jovovich is tall enough to be Rachel (5’8″) and could certainly pull of that roll. Jenks when he was big was 6’4″ – the only actor that big is Goran Visnjic and he’s already got the role of Al (after all, remember the amazing job he did in Practical Magic). Jude Law, at 5’11″ is almost tall enough to play 6′ Kisten. As a tall person, it always bugs me when they have short actors play characters who are supposed to be tall.

  140. Newport Girl

    I think Wes Ramsey would make a great Kisten.
    Drew Fuller would make a great Al or a full size Jenks

  141. Sheila R.

    Oops! That should be Daniel Dae Kim instead of Casey Affleck in Saladan’s role.

  142. Sheila R.

    I could really see them in supporting roles, too.

    Willem Dafoe; Pierce Brosnan; Hugh Laurie; Olivier Martinez; Kristen Bell; Robert Prescott; Richard Griffiths; James Franco; Hayden Christensen; Enrico Colantoni; Audrey Marnay

  143. Rose Sutton

    Since the Twilight movies came out I have been seeing a lot of Kristen stewart. I think she would make a great Rachel. Red hair, skinny, and tough. Oh, hell yeah!!

    • Jim

      She seems weak, clumsy, and insecure. Rachel is more confident than Kristen Stewart. Rachel has clutsy moments, but is over-all well-handled.

    • Antonio

      That’s a good pick, Rose. ;-) She meets my personal criteria: 1)matches physical description;2)good actor;3)age appropriate;4)and most importantly, is hot in Hollywood NOW–an up-and-comer or a bankable star. Personally, i tried to avoid those actors who were already famous for a “supernatural” role(Twilight,Supernatural,TrueBlood,Harry Potter,Underworld,etc), but still–I like Kristen Stewart. She’s very hot right now! 8-)

  144. Maryellen

    I still think Jude Law would make a great Al.

    • Jim

      He lacks a toughness required for the role. He didn’t even have me convinced after Repo Men.

    • Maryellen

      Okay, I see your point, but… he could totally pull off the supercilious British lord whose mood changes instantaneously. I’m just sayin…

    • Antonio

      I LIKE Jude Law, Maryellen! Nice pick. He DID play a bad guy in ‘Road To Perdition’ and was excellent in the role. He might make a good Rynn Cormel as well.

  145. Sabrina

    Saw “A Knight’s Tale” yesterday. Pretty old, this one, and I totally forgot about this incredibly sexy actress playing the role of Jocelyn. Shannyn Sossamon. She might become my pick for Ivy. Maybe. Still have to think about it…

    • Antonio

      She is sexy! But as you said yourself, it’s(the movie) a “pretty old one.” Finding a chinese actress who is a “name” actress NOW isn’t easy…If you get a chance to check out the new NIKITA TV series, there’s a terrifc actress named Maggie Q. It’s eery how perfect she would be for IVY. She’s THAT good.

  146. Antonio

    I always wanted to cast the “relax-someday” Hollow’s movie, but I always had a hard time finding just the right actor/actresses, ESPECIALLY ones to play Rachel and Ivy. I cast 25 parts and tried to include 2 pictures of each and a short sample video for the main characters/actors. I put it all on one of my blog pages so i wouldn’t “clog” up this page.

    http://antoniomyblog.wordpress.com/2010/09/23/rachel-morgan-book-seriescharacters/

  147. DeAtHsSwEeTKiSs

    I think Katherine Moennig could be Ivy or Skimmer…

  148. Krista

    Deborah Ann Woll is SO Rachel! frizz the hair and its totally her. Fantastic actress, can kick ass yet still show her feelings, funny, energetic….its a shoe in!

  149. Amanda

    I would rather see The Rachel Morgan Series as a Television show, maybe Showtime, but not as a movie series. A television show could delve more into the story, but a movie would chop it to pieces. Anyway, here’s my list.

    Rachel- Lake Bell
    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1128572/

    Ivy- Devon Aoki
    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1226817/

    Jenks- Hunter Parrish
    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1446060/

    Kisten- Ryan Goslin
    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0331516/

    Nick- Ben Whishaw
    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0924210/

    Trent- Chris Pine
    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1517976/

    Al- Johnny Depp
    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000136/

    Newt- Eva Green
    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1200692/

    Piscary- Ben Kingsley
    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005188/

    Skimmer- Abbie Cornish
    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0180411/

    David- James Marsden
    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005188/

    Ceri- Emily Blunt
    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1289434/

    Keasly- Morgan Freeman
    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000151/

    • Jim

      I totally agree with it being a TV series vice a bunch of movies. I am sooo with you on Ivy’s character. She has attitude and appearance. She’s not that tall, but everything elses matches. I’d stick with the rest of my original picks for the rest though, and add John Beasley http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0064040/ as Keasley. He seems like a sweet old man that will do good and may have a shadowed past. I’d think there could be someone elses better for Ceri too, like Cate Blanchett http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000949/. I’m not sure, she’s not exactly who I imageined in the role either, but a little closer.

    • Amanda

      I like your choice for Keasley. Some of the other roles like Ceri, I think I would prefer to see new actors and actresses fill the roles, or at least less known ones.

    • Nikkie

      Love Lake Bell for Rachel! I saw her in over her dead body and thought she would be perfect for Rachel! I too think the TV series would be great

  150. Sandra

    I am super suprised about the suggestions on this list. Is it just me, or are ALOT of people forgetting that Jenks is supossed to look like an 18 year old? That Ivy, Rachel, and Trent are ALL in their 20′s. They look like they’re in their 20′s. I don’t want to call some of these actors and actresses ‘old’ ….but…. some os these suggestions are WAAAY off the mark. Just saying.

  151. Willow

    Okay, I’ve gone through this entire list checking out the possible Ivy Tamwood suggestions… and honestly, people? I love Olivia Wilde, Milla Jovovich, Angelina Jolie and Kate Beckinsale as much as the next lesbian but, Ivy? I think I am going to have to say my number one non-asian mix suggestion is Catherine Zeta Jones. Mostly because she has the charisma for the part if not the exact look. It’s a tough look to articulate since Ivy doesn’t necessarily have Asian features predominantly, but she does have some Asian characteristics. This would be a hard role to cast right. I picture her beauty to be so naturally captivating, that it is actually rather simplistically winsome.

    • Jim

      She’s gorgeous, but not angry enough. Her personality is not quite as strong as necessary. A prime example is the movie Entrapment. She does the whole damaged goods thing well, but makes her way too vulnerable for the role of Ivy I think.

    • Willow

      Yes, I can see what you say Jim. I’m afraid I am just grasping at straws there. I’m not sure an appropriate Ivy has emerged among us yet… Well, not a real life person representation anyway. *smile* I rather like Kim’s version.

    • Willow

      Update: This woman, a fan of The Hollows, is now my official “Relax-they-aren’t-going-to-make-it Hollow’s movie” pick for Ivy Tamwood.

      Carolyn Veronica Busby is quite a dead ringer for the living vamp, in my opinion.

    • John

      I think Mylène Jampanoï would be the perfect Ivy. I especially like that she has this intense look in her eyes…she’s also a good of asian and french so she doesn’t look too Asian but still enough that you can tell…http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1227864/

    • Sandra

      Weeeeell, I don’t know about that. She doesn’t strike me as Ivy. Ivy is willowy….and in her 20′s.

    • Sandra

      By the way, I’m talking about Catherine Zeta Jones right there. Not Carolyn Busby. Catherine is the one that is not a good fit.

    • Willow

      Yes, as previously conceded, she (Catherine Zeta Jones)is not actually the best choice… my point here is that at the moment, I really just don’t see any established actor as Ivy. Hence, my vote now lies with fan, Carolyn Busby.

    • Nikkie

      Check out Maggie Q from the new Nikita TV series. She’s very kick butt! I think you might like her. She was also in the new die hard movie. Shes my official pick for Ivy.

    • Leslie

      I keep thinking of Shannen Doherty as Ivy…..

  152. Beth

    Felicia Day without a doubt should be Rachel. The only other one I could imagine is Sam Rockwell as Jenks.

  153. Deana

    I always pictured a young and more understandable Ozzy Osbourne as Al. Must have been the glasses.

  154. Mandy

    ; 3;

    Why does everyone keep saying actors who look like drug addicts should be Al?? He’s a handsome demon, not a crack head!

    Oh, if only, if only Alan Rickman were younger, he would be the perfect actor for Al.

    And likewise, is Debra Messing (from Will & Grace) were younger, she’d be perfect for Rachel.

    I also think Sienna Guillory would be awesome as Ivy (similar to her Resident Evil: Apocalypse role).

  155. Micki

    I am having fun looking at all the suggested actors for the Hollows characters!! I wasn’t totally convinced of an actress for Rachel until I checked out the recommended German actress Franka Potente about a third of the way through.Her eyes have the look of having seen some very crazy scary shit and she looks like she could kick some serious ass!

  156. Courtney

    Alexander Skarsgard for Kisten! I think he would fit that role perfectly!

  157. Jim

    Rachel – Brigid Brannagh http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0909578/ She looked perfect for the role in the part she had in the tv series Angel.

    Piscary – Bob Hoskins http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001364/ I think he has the proper look and has shown hisself to be viscious and nice enough in some of his parts that he would fit.

    Kisten – Alan Ritchson http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2024927/ He hass the right look; he might serve better as Jenks. Philip Winchester also has the right looks, and demonstrated the right attitude in “Alice” http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0934618/

    Ivy – Kristin Kreuk http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0471036/ has the right appearance, minus the height, but not exactly the right attitude. Kate Beckinsale http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000295/ has the obvious going for her. I really don’t know on this one.

  158. cattopia

    im always disappointed by books made into movies. theres a good chance I won’t go. Love the hollows books and don’t want to ruin my perception of the characters. Jenks and Bis are awesome and its great how Al’s character has been developing. Can’t even think who would play Rachel, Ivy or Ceri well. Not to mention Trent. I love all the characters! Please keep on writing more books, this series is awesome! It’s hands down my favorite!

  159. I finally decided to put in my 2 cents about this :). I agree with many of you (thanks for such great ideas!).

    Some aren’t actors/actresses but how I envision the characters when I’m reading the books:

    Rachel – Mini Anden or Bryce Dallas Howard

    Ivy – Mylene Jampanoi or Moon Bloodgood or Lynn collins

    Al – Gary Oldman (As in Dracula) or Alan Tudyk, but I can agree with many and say Johnny Depp would work (I’d watch just about anything with him in it!) :)

    Pierce – Orlando Bloom or Milo Ventimiglia

    Trent – Paul Bettany

    Nick – Eric Balfour (first guy that popped into my head for him and he just stuck)

    Kisten – Taylor Kitsch or Jude Law

    Ceri – Kirsten Dunst

    Newt – Tilda Swinton (This is how I always thought of Newt)

    David – Liev Schreiber

    Piscary – Ben Kingsley

  160. Sandra

    dude.

    Trent- Cillian Murphy ( this I am firm on)
    Keasley- Morgan Freeman
    Ivy- Kristin Kreuk
    Rachel- Laura Prepon ( this was not my first thought, I stole it from someone else here- GREAT suggestion)
    Big Al- Gary Oldman
    Nick- Ashton Kutcher
    Jenks- Sean William Scott
    Kisten- Taylor Kitsch

  161. Michelle

    The only actor in my mind when I read this series is Mark Sheppard as Al – I always picture him in a crushed velvet suit the smoke colored glasses and hear his voice. He has always had the right balance of disarming charm with an edge of true danger under it all. I would personaly love to see a movie or TV series of these books – for know I am completely content to build the world in my head. Thank You for writing these books -

    I will now here Sigourney Weaver in my mind whenever I read Newt

    • Kristi

      Michelle, I was thinking Gavin Rosdale as Al probably only because he was a demon in “Constantine”, and it stuck in my mind! BUT….YES I can totally see Mark Sheppard! Good idea. And yes, Sigourney Weaver was my vision when reading about Newt, because she is gracefully aged, with an air of brilliance behind those eyes. She would also be capable of going from innocently curious to scary and all powerful in a New York minute! She would be perfect for that role!

    • Michelle

      Once I read your suggestion of Sigourney – it was perfect! Brilliant – she has that androgynous look to her face – especially with no hair (Aliens 3 I think it was) And her curious to scary in the blink of an eye genius!

  162. Kristi

    Rachel- Alicia Witt
    Ivy – Olivia Wilde
    Jenks – Seann Thomas Scott
    Matilda – Kate Bosworth
    Jax – Tom Felton
    Kistin – Jensen Ackles
    Nick – Matthew Goode
    Pierce – Robert Pattinson
    Marshall – Bradley Cooper
    Al – Gavin Rosdale
    Newt – Sigourney Weaver
    Ceri – Heather Graham
    Trent – Jude Law
    Johnathan – David Morse
    Quen – Tommy Lee Jones
    David – Breckin Meyer
    Glenn – Shemar Moore
    Edden – Joe Pantoliano
    Piscary – Al Pacino
    Rynn – Kevin Spacey
    Keasly – Robert Guillaume
    Lee Saladan – Lambert Wilson
    Francis – Doug Hutchinson
    Skimmer – Ali Larter
    Takata – John Corbett

  163. Brittany

    Al- Antonio Banderas
    Kisten- Alexander Skarsgard (eric of trueblood)
    Jinks- Seth Green!!! Hes so cute and short already :-)
    Matalina – Drew Barrymore
    Nick- ugh. someone evil looking…
    Trent- the guy who plays malfoy in harry potter…Tom Felton
    Ivy- Jeon Ji-Hyun or Megan Fox
    Piscary- Johnny Depp
    Rachel- Laura Prepon (off of that seventy’s show)
    Ceri- Scarlett johansson
    Newt- Bette Midler
    Glenn- Will Smith (yum)
    David- Brendan Fraser
    Pierce- Gerard Butler (yummmmm)
    Edden- Robin Williams

  164. Shana

    Am I the only one who sees Rose McGowan? She could so rock Rachel!

  165. Megan

    Jason Isaacs as Al! Did anyone see him as “Captain Hook” in Peter Pan? Yeah, Al all the way…only without the hook of course. ;)
    http://allaroundmeblog.blogspot.com/2008/09/captain.html

    Plus, Jason is superb at playing villains. Colonel Tavington in “The Patriot”, Lucius Malfoy in Harry Potter, Captain Hook in Peter Pan….Yeah, definitely think he could pull off big Al! Plus the man is supremely sexy, so that’s a huge plus. :)

    And for Rachel, Scarlett Johansson is definitely at the top of my list! When I was “Ironman 2″ and saw her as Black Widow, I immediately thought, “Wow…Rachel Morgan!” Haha!

    Those are really the only two that i have strong opinions about. :)

    • Holly J.

      Every single time I “see” Big Al I think of Jason Issacs; scary evil but supremely sexy. You want to, but you know he’s naughty. (Perhaps that’s the whole problem right there…)

  166. Danielle

    Karen Gillian would be perfect for Rachel, I think, if she could do an American accent. She’s a redhead, just under six feet tall, and completely mad. She’s been brilliant in the new season of doctor who as the companion.

    http://www.seriesadictos.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/docto.jpg
    http://www.beyondhollywood.com/gallery/uploads/2010/04/Karen-Gillian-who-3.jpg

  167. Gen

    Rachel Lefevre as Rachel Morgan. Seriously.

  168. Zach

    I think of Newt and I think of Annie Lennox. She’s just got…kind of a demonic thing going, and a powerful voice. I think she could really pull it off. Or maybe she could have at one point.

  169. Lindsey

    Ok, so I totally envision Derek Hough from Dancing with the Stars as Jenks. He can dance really good which would be good for the athleticism needed to play that part. Plus, he already looks like a pixie!

  170. Sabrina

    Found my Piscary. Don’t know if this one has been already mentioned by someone, but Mark Strong really works for me. Saw him in “Robin Hood” as Godfrey. Really liked his big bad ugly attitude :-).

  171. Jen

    Rachel: Rachelle Lefevre
    http://glambamm.com/images/rachel-lefevre.jpg

    Ivy: Kristin Kreuk
    http://www.kryptonsite.com/wrath1.jpg

    http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_UeUOG7UIPug/SxK3-E2FJxI/AAAAAAAABzI/pA1eJdA9_wI/s1600/JamieJohnston_.jpg

    I have vision of Trent with his white-blonde hair and business suit but I can’t quite match him up with a real person. I’ll keep working on it.

  172. Trish

    Ok a lot of these are great picks, but the one character (Al) where I kind of imagine in my head as reading, the craziest thing–is a cartoon character. The warden in Superjail.
    From wiki about the warden: “The Warden (David Wain) is the proprietor of Superjail. Clad in a purple tailcoat, gloves, a purple top hat, red cummerbund, and yellow-tinted glasses, the Warden has been described as a “sadistic Willy Wonka”. Despite his seemingly happy and carefree demeanor, he is unmistakably an evil and selfish man, as one possible future depicts him ruthlessly subjugating the entire human race and turning the whole world into a single prison state..”
    pic: http://fantazmigoriuh.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/29.jpg
    So I guess this isn’t really an actor pick afterall…lol. But yeah…XD

  173. Ali Roberts

    I think

    Ivy- Kristen Kruek or Olivia Wilde

    Rachel- Angie Everhart or Alicia Witt

    Jenks- Should definitely be Casey James from American Idol!

    Nick- Tom Welling from smallville

    Kisten- Paul Wesley (vampire diaries on the cw)

    David- It would be easy to say hugh Jackman but NAH! Peter Stebbings

    Piscary- Martin Short

    Ceri- Gwen Paltrow

    Keasley- Morgan Freeman

    Big Al- Ian Somerhalder

    Newt- Kiera Knightley

    Trent- Jackson Rathbone

  174. Off the Top of my head.

    Ivy – Selma Blair — she has the hair and the body.
    Nick – Joel Moore from Avatar, Bones and Medium
    Kisten _ SImon Baker, although, in my head he has the face of a young Robert CUlp.

    Edden — Glenn Morshower the good Secret Service Agent on 24.

    Ceri an actress who can manage great vulnerability and strength at the same time — Keira Knightly, Kate Bekinsale, Kate HUdson (Physical Type)
    Piscary – Bill Nighe

    Marshall __ Matthew McConaughey

    Rachel – Scarlett Johanssen.

  175. Tena

    Jason Behr would be a good Minias. He’s very hot.

  176. Karl

    What do you think about this list of actors for the Hollows:

    Al – Hugh Laurie (He is English and has the accent for Al ) but Johnny Depp would make and interesting Al as well or even Robert Downey Jr.

    Kisten: Clive Owen

    Jinks : Zac Efron? really couldn’t come up with anyone

    Keasley: Morgan Freeman

    Nick: Edward Norton

    Trent: Leonardo DiCaprio

    Ivy: JAMIE CHUNG, I think Olivia Wilde who play’s 13 on House has a good look for Ivy

    Piscary: Ben Kinglsey works for me

    Rachael: Kate Winslet, Jennifer Garner, Laura Prepon (that 70′s show)

    Ceri: Gwyneth Paltrow, Cate Blanchett

    Newt: Helen Bonham Carter, Kathy Bates

    Glenn: Terrance Howard (maybe) or Taye Diggs

    David; Hugh Jackman

    Pierce; Jude Law, Orlando Bloom

    Lee: Hugo Weaving

    Ryan: Robert DeNiro

    • cristina

      I do love these picks! Jenks is the hardest, it would probably have to be an unknown actor:) But Hugh Jackman, perfect!

    • Nicole Stevenson

      I could totally see 13 as Ivy, and Laura Prepon as Rachel

  177. Maria (Germany)

    I don’t know if you guys know “snooker” (its something like pool and very popular in Europe) but there’s a player from australia and he is everything I ever thougt of TRENT (well he’s not an actor but hey, he’s hot!)

    It’s Neil Robertson
    and he doesn’t even have to change his hair ;)

  178. Amy

    OK… I’m going to hate myself for actually assigning people to the fantasy world in my mind….but here we go.

    Al- Hugh Laurie (Dr. House)
    Kisten- Taylor Kitsch (Gambit in Wolverine)
    Jinks- Orlando Bloom
    Nick- Jude Law
    Trent- Alexander Skarsgard (don’t wanna see him as another vamp!)
    Ivy- Kate Beckinsale
    Piscary- Ben Kingsley
    Rachel- Anne Hathaway
    Ceri- Kate Blanchett definitely
    Newt- Meryl Streep
    Glenn- Benicio Del Toro
    David- Christian Bale (minus the weird Batman voice)
    Pierce-Viggo Mortensen

    • Karl

      I agree with you in hating to assign people to certain roles as I always picture them in my head differently, that said I agree with many of your choices,

      Al – Hugh Laurie (He is English as the accent for All) but Johnny Depp would make and interesting Al as well or even Robert Downey Jr.

      Kisten: Clive Owen

      Jinks : Zac Efron?

      Keasley: Morgan Freeman

      Nick: Edward Norton

      Trent: Leonardo DiCaprio

      Ivy: JAMIE CHUNG, Angelina Jolie? (cant see Kate Beckinsale in this as she is described in the books as having an oriental cast) I did think the girl who play’s 13 on House has a good look for Ivy not sure she fits though) and definitely not Milla Jovovich.

      Piscary: Ben Kinglsey works for me

      Rachael: Kate Winslet, Jennifer Garner,

      Ceri: Gwyneth Paltrow, Cate Blanchett

      Newt: Helen Bonham Carter, Kathy Bates

      Glenn: Terrance Howard (maybe) or Taye Diggs

      David; Hugh Jackman

      Pierce; Jude Law, Orlando Bloom

    • Karl

      What about Hugo Weaving as Lee

  179. Angelika

    Hi I´m from germany so i would prefer some german actors i.e

    Jenks – Til Schweiger
    Denon – Jürgen Vogel
    Kisten – David Winter
    Ivy – Franka Potente or Caroline Herford
    Skimmer – Cosma Shiva Hagen

    But ther are some characters who can´t be played by german actors like

    Piscary Danny DeVito
    Nick – Matthey McConaughey

    and there ist a mus for Hugh Jackman as David

  180. Dave

    ivy -> Grace park (Boomer from New BSG on SciFi) or yes I love Underworld so Kate Beckinsale (Oh the skin tight black leather outfits)
    Rachel -> Scarlett Johansson (Think redheaded Black Widow / Natasha Romanoff in iron man 2)
    Trent -> Julian McMahon
    Big Al -> Cary Elwes (Princess bride is a classic) or Bill Nighy (Underworld)
    Jenks -> Bruce Campbell (Army of Darkness is all time fave cult classic)
    Ceri -> Monica Bellucci (Persephone in Matrix reloaded) or Cate Blanchett as many others said before
    Kisten -> Alexander Skarsgård (From True Blood on HBO)
    Det. Glenn -> Kevin Grevioux (Werewolf in underworld) or Richard T. Jones (From Terminator TV series)
    Edden -> Has to be R. Lee Ermey. He is the only one I can picture (Just like in Seven with Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman)
    Piscary -> Arnold Vosloo ( High Priest Imhotep in the Mummy)
    Denin -> Tommy ‘Tiny’ Lister (President Lindberg from the fifth element)

  181. Peggy

    Jenks: Sean Patrick Flannery or Craig Horner
    Rachel: Rachel Lefevre or Scarlett Pomers
    Ivy: Olivia Wilde or Summer Glau. Milla Jovavich? (Think Ultraviolet)
    Ceri: Charlize Theron or Dakota Fanning
    Kisten: Taylor Kitsch or Charlie Hunnam
    Trent: Johnny Depp, possibily (maybe) Cillian Murphy?
    Glenn: Bryton McClure
    Piscary: Julian McMahon
    David: Hugh Jackman
    Nick: Kyle Schmid, Hugh Grant
    Matalina: Mila Kunis

  182. Sabrina

    Found my Jenks while watching the TV series “Wire in the Blood”: Mark Letheren. Think he’s a pretty good fit.

  183. caleb

    edden-clint eastwood

    Jenks-stumped right now
    Kisten-blond guy from supernatural

    • Chris

      I agree with Andrew that Meagen Fox would make a smokin’ Skimmer but Jenks needs to be heroic and snarky and try as I may I really think James Marsters that keeps coming to mind.

  186. AndrewIslay

    The way I picture them in my head:

    Rachel – Keira Knightley
    Ivy – Olivia Wilde
    Ceri – Mila Kunis
    Jenks – Jesse Spencer
    Trent – Johnny Depp
    David – Hugh Jackman
    Keasley – Samuel L Jackson
    Al – Hugh Laurie
    Skimmer – Megan Fox
    Piscary – Brad Pitt
    Nick – Hugh Grant – don’t know why???

  187. Jan

    Rachel-Holly Hunter
    Ivy-Kate Beckinsale
    Nick-Ryan Reynolds
    Kisten-Josh Holloway
    Trent-Chris Pine
    Ceri-Charlize Theron
    Rynn-Robert Deniro
    Al-Ralph Fiennes

  188. Sarah

    David–Hugh Jackman
    Kisten–James Marsters (I mean, come on, people!)
    Al–Hugo Weaving or Mark Strong
    Ceri– Clare Danes
    Ivy–Lynn Collins
    Rachel–Alicia Witt

  189. dana g

    rachel- bryce dallas howard.

    ivy–> rachel evan woods….just dye her black. or Evangeline lilly (LOST)…maybe also check olivia wilde.

    KISTIN—> jesse spencer (dr. chase on HOUSE)

    NICK—> joshua jackson, kyle schmid, noah segan (brick)

    PIERCE–> Joseph Gordon Levitt (500 days of summer, MANIC) or James McAvoy (wanted, attonement)

    Marshall–> matthew fox (LOST)

    JENKS–>hunter perrish (Silas on Weeds)
    MATILDA—>Mia Wasikowska (alice in the new alice in wonderland)

    AL–>billy cudrup, Michael C Hall (dexter), johnathan rhys meyers (tudors)

    NEWT—> maggie gylenhall.

    CERI–> claire danes. especially now that she is a blonde or zooey deschanel.

    TRENT–>
    Elizabeth(trents ex fiance)—> anna torv (fringe)

    • Just Me

      I love this list. Especially Michael C. Hall as Al. Brilliant!

    • Trish

      It never occurred to me before, but I also agree that Michael C. Hall would be a brilliant Al. But it feels like typecasting since Dexter the character himself seems like a good Al (just that he has a higher moral and actually listens to harry) Al sometimes listens to Rachel. haha.

  190. LoveBis

    how about Rachel Lefevre as Rachel?

  191. Joe Blake

    Jason Carter – Marcus from Babylon 5 as AL
    Jason Akles as Nick
    Dakota Fanning as Ceri
    India de Beaufort as Rachel
    Ben Kingsly as Piscary
    Clive Owen as David
    Devon Akoi as Matty
    Elijah Wood as Jenks
    Jessica Alba as Ivy

  192. Allie

    Based on what I read above, and also knowing that no one will ever be able to look exactly like any of the characters the way I imagine them (they are all unique, and I do prefer the way I see them, but obviously, no one is going to picture them the same way!), here is what I think :

    Rachel : Bryce Dallas Howard
    Ivy : Megan Fox
    Ceri : Anna Walton
    Kisten : Chris Pine
    Trent : Channing Tatum
    Jenks : Jeremy Sumpter
    Matalina : Saoirse Ronan
    Keasley : Morgan Freeman
    Skimmer : Evan Rachel Wood
    Edden : Julian Sands
    Nick : Ben Whishaw / Jake Gyllenhaal
    Al : Stuart Townsend / Johnny Depp
    Newt : Hilary Swank
    David : Hugh Jackman
    Piscary : Patrick Stewart / James Marsters
    Rynn Cormel : Alan Rickman
    Minias : Ryan Phillippe

    Some of them may or may not really match their descriptions in the books but I like to let my own imagination go so I can actually put a face that I like and think would match their personality myself. I try not to go too far, though… !! I also think that depending on wether we think so and so is cute or not, that’s going to influence what we think the characters look like. So here are some of the people I think would do even though I prefer the ones in my head ! :)

    • Jin

      not sure about the megan fox or evan rachel wood thing but the rest of the list is killer….I so think that Johnny Depp could pull off Al. Channing Tatuam as Trent. Never thought of it but yeah it definately works.

  193. Jessie

    A friend just got me started on this series and so I’ve just finished the first book. I’m not far enough into it to know all the characters but I’m excited.

    Rachel: Jennifer Garner or Jessica Biel
    Ivy: Angelina Jolie
    Keasley: Morgan Freeman
    Francis: Andy Dick

    Not sure about the others though….thought about Simon Baker for Jenks but he’s not young enough.

  194. Scott

    I’ve only recently fallen in love with the Hollows having picked up White Witch, Black Curse and have had to read them in reverse order but having finished them all I have a few meager ideas so here goes…

    Ivy : Kristin Kruek this choice is based almost entirely on the one episode of Smallville where Lana was turned into a vampire she looked good with fangs and even better in tight leather need I say more? lol

    Ceri : Anna Walton who already played a shy semi naive elven princess in Hellboy II as Princess Nuala and from the moment I “met” Ceri Nuala is how I kinda envision ceri sans the freaky contacts and 6 inches of white makeup

    David: I totally gotta agree with one of the previous poster Hugh Jackman would be an AWESOME David

    Al: this was a another tough one but assuming he would be spending most of his time in his favorite british aristocrat I’d have to go with either Alan Cumming (nightcrawler in x-ment 2) or Malcom McDowell.

    and with that I’m tapped out I really wanted to suggest a rachel but I can’t for the life of me think of any actress that would do her justice.

    Jenks is another one I couldn’t decide on I just can’t think of any actors who could pull of a pixy.

    and with that I’m done I might come back if I get any new idea but till then I’m done and in closing I’d like to say I can hardly wait for Black Magic Sanction to be release I even have it preordered :)

  195. Demons:
    Algaliarept- John Malkovich
    Newt- Hilary Swank

    Humans:
    Nick Sparagmos- Ben Whishaw
    Detective Edden- Harvey Keitel

    Vamps:
    Skimmer- Evan Rachel Wood

    Elves:
    Jon- Daniel Craig

    Pixies:
    Jenks- Jeremy Sumpter
    Matalina- Saoirse Ronan

    Witches:
    Keasley- Morgan Freeman
    Marshall- Andy Whitfield

  196. Erin

    I*’ve picked a couple of Rachel’s but I think they should do open casting calls and see if someone new could portray Rachel.

    • Erin

      I just can’t really think of anyone from hollywood that would portray her so if they did make a movie that would be my choice

  197. Corey

    Cast ideas for first book ONLY:

    Rachel: Bryce Dallas Howard
    Ivy: Jamie Chung
    Jenks: Zac Efron (Jenks IS only 18)
    Denon: Dwayne Johnson
    Kisten: Chris Pine
    Trent: Ben Foster

    Still thinking of other actors for the rest of the major roles.

  198. Amanda

    For a while I thought it would be cool to see a Rachel Morgan movie made, but I talked it over with my friends and we decided that any attempt will never do the books justice. Too much would be cut out, and Hollywood might squash the sometimes off the wall humor that we love-mostly pertaining to Jenks. You guys know what I mean I hope. They’ll take the books and level it out to make it suitable for the majority. The only way I can see justice be done is if it’s turned into a short series, so that all the major points can be worked in, but even then we could lose alot. Sorry for the ramble, but I had to get that out. Horay for the upcoming graphic novels!

    • Chrisy

      I so agree with you. Exept maybe for Lord Of The Rings I was alsways disappointed in the movies after reading the books. But it’s Kims choice anyways.

  199. Jim

    Piscary: Patrick Stewart
    Rynn Cormel: Bill Clinton!

    Maybe it’s just me, but whenever I read Jenk’s dialog, I hear it in a broad New Jersey accent! I am from Jersey, but still, the attitude Jenks has is perfectly from Jersey.

  200. Rachel

    ok I love this series, and I know actors so heres my shot….. I liked a lot of the people previously mentioned… but here I go…
    Rachel- Milla jovovich (that woman kicks ass!)
    Kisten- I liked jensen Ackles, although kist would be hard to place, the face I see in my head…well i cant really think of an actor good enough, but Jenson is good at being a dick, but due to his time on days of our lives, I know he can do uber sensitive. James Marsters wouldnt be bad either, after his stint in buffy and angel as the vampire spike…with the dyed blonde hair and accent…. i dont imagine hed want another vamp gig though…. but hes got all the experiance. being good and bad.
    Keesly- I liked Morgan freeman
    David- I really liked hugh jackman and he did play van helsing, hes good in long hair.
    Jenks- Ryan renolds is good at sarcastic so I think hes good for the part.
    Ivy- i agree megan fox would be ok, she looks the part but shes not the most talented…but probably best for the part as she is pretty sexy.
    minias- I agree antonio banderas…if he could get rid of his spanish accent.
    denon- I dont know his name, but the guy that played biff in back to the future, I always see his face in my head when I read about denon.
    al-Gavin rossdale would be good in the part, hed look good in the clothes and glasses, also hes already played a demon and has the accent!!!!
    Minias- Tom cruise might be better as minias….or not. Jerry o connoll.
    Nick-Jake gyllenhaal.

  201. jeff forbes

    So many choices as to who plays who.And many i agree with,so here’s my contribution.
    Rachael Morgan-Jennifer Garner
    Ivy Tamwood-Megan Fox
    Jenks-Thomas Dekker
    Keasley-Morgan Freeman
    Ceri-Cameron Diaz
    Trent-Aaron Eckhart
    Piscary-Julian Sands
    Kisten-Chris Jerhico
    Al-Stuart Townsend
    Rynn Cormel-Ben Cross

  202. Jimbo

    I really think the books would do better as a series on HBO or Showtime. Somehow, I can’t see any of the Hollows books as a 2-hour movie; there is too much in them.

  203. Nick

    Simone Simons would make an awesome Rachel although her hair would need to be curled for the part xD

  204. Sandra

    Kisten – Channing Tatum or Cam Gigandet
    Ivy – Angelina Jolie or Megan Fox
    Rachel – Taylor Momsen
    Trent – I would agree with Tom Felton, but I think he might be too young. Better Bradley Cooper or Daniel Craig.
    Nick – Ashton Kutcher, maybe?
    David – don’t really know who.. somehow I can’t imagine Hugh Jackman as David
    Piscary – I always imagine someone who looks a bit like Mahatma Ghandi, don’t know why. :DD
    Matalina – Cameron Diaz or something..
    Al – Johnny Depp, definitely! But maybe Alan Rickman would be a good choice, too. ^^
    Jenks – Jared Padalecki
    Ceri – Evan Rachel Wood

    yeah.. just my ideas :D

  205. shayne

    ivy= koyuki (blood-the last vampire,the last samuri)
    david=hugh jackman
    keesley=morgan freeman
    denon=dwight johnson
    alice morgan=margareet gavin (audio book voice)
    al=sean connery
    ceri-liv tyler
    kist=Jensen Ackles

  206. Crystal

    Rachel-Amy Sloan
    Ivy -Kristin Kreuk or Elisha Cuthbert
    Jenks -Kyle Schmid
    Trent – Hayden Christensen
    Ceri-Elisha Cuthbert or Laura Vandervoort
    Al- Antonio
    Kisten-Brian Van Holt
    David-Hugh Jackman

    • Antonio Rich

      HEY! I resemble that remark! (Grin)

    • ashley

      I think Hayden Christenson is a wonderful choice :)
      I love Trents character and I think that Chris Pine would also make a good trent. I like your Hugh Jackman idea as well. :)

  207. Caroline S

    Rachel-Katee Sackhoff would play Rachel perfectly even if she isn’t a natural redhead..her acting skills are amazing
    Ivy-Grace Park…not to dip into the battlestar pool too much but this girl can act predatory and she’s 5’9″ which I think is essential to Ivy’s character
    Jenks-Hunter Parrish
    Nick-Topher Grace or Jared Padalecki
    Trent-Aaron Eckhart
    Kiston-Jensen Ackles
    Ceri-Jayne Wisener..Johanna from Sweeny Todd, she’s kind of ethereal like I imagine Ceri would be
    Keasly-Morgan Freeman obviously
    Skinner-Kristen Bell
    David-Misha collins…his voice as castiel on supernatural sounds just like i think david would sound

  208. Stephenie

    Ok, so I haven’t found ANYONE to play most of the characters, but the ONE I have found is Trent.

    I think in a few years Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy in Harry Potter) would be perfect. He pulls off rich, amoral, and (in the 6th movie) morally torn; very well. Give him some prosthetic ears, a little bit of self tanner, and a few years and you have a Trent.

  209. JB

    Rachel-Katee Sackhoff (Dye her hair obviously) (Battlestar Galactica)
    Ivy-Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds)
    Jenks-Justin Kirk (Weeds)
    Trent-Jason Dohring (Veronica Mars)
    Al-Gavin Rossdale
    Nick-Dave Annable (Brothers & Sisters)
    Kist-Jason Lewis (someone else mentioned him, and I like it) (Sex and the City)

  210. Beth

    Here is who I see in my head when I read, not necessarily good casting for a movie:

    Trent: Anderson Cooper
    Rachel: Alicia Witt (looks a little like Kim)
    Ivy: Cathrine Zeta Jones
    Al: Gary Oldman (ala Dracula 1992)

    • Victoria

      Anderson Cooper! Oh god, I can see it! If it weren’t for the fact that he’s, you know, a CNN journalist. The man was doing Katrina coverage in a suit and tie.

      This would be an awesome tv show…if it were to stay true to the books and film in Cinci. (I grew up there and would be pissed if it were set anywhere else).

    • Circe

      Oh my god he even has pointy ears! I think he would be better as Kalamack Senior.

  211. Roberto

    How about this?
    Rachel – Isla Fisher
    Ivey – Olivia Wilde
    Kisten – Ryan Reynolds
    Nick – Micheal Imperioli
    Trent – Julian McMahon
    Jenks – Woody Harrelson
    Keasly – Danny Glover
    Big Al – Mickey Rourke
    Piscari – Al Pacino

    • Antonio Rich

      You know, I see Julian McHahon as a really good Rynn Cormel. A bit too old for Trent…

    • Roberto

      I guess I always pictured him a bit older than Rachel. I think Eric Dane would be a great Rynn also

    • Rachel

      ya know what i totally agree…julian macmhan would be a good trent….he could also pull off minias.

    • Darren

      I for real see Olivia Wilde playing Ivy shes sexy and thats how i imagine her =] and Isla Fisher tas Rachel there both very beautiful women so its perfect

  212. Douglas

    Ivy = Milla Jovavich

    • Antonio Rich

      I’ve alwyays like Alicia Witt…she is 34 though…Mylene – pretty woman…although i don’t know if she speaks english…Tilda Swinton – that IS a perfect casting!

    • Caitlin

      Yeah, I’m not sure that Mylene speaks english, either. But to me, her look is perfect. Half French, half Chinese. She should learn English just to play Ivy!

  213. Flintsteak

    rachel-rose mcgowan ivy-kate beckinsale eden-kieth david jenks-tom jane al-stewart townsend nick-topher grace kisten-david boreanaz david-michael sheen trent- cillian murphy dali-jonathon hyde newt-robin williams(some explanation needed i know)- at first it was unclear that she was female, if you remember, so she cant be beautiful… Or even pretty… Or feminine. I imagine a demonic doubtfire-esque robin.

    • Antonio Rich

      You know, I’ve always had David Boreanez as Glenn. I know he’s white, but i think he’s great.

      Newt-Robin Williams? wow, that IS bold. My leading Newt for now: Shirley Mansion (tv’s terminator:Sarah Connor/music:lead singer–Garbage)

  214. Sarah

    Sorry if this message shows up twice. I try it a second time because nothing happend when I sumit my comment before.
    I think Gary Oldman is the perfect cast for Al ^_~: http://www.freeimagehosting.net/image.php?07b628bba3.png (original pic: http://n2.nabble.com/file/n2553678/039_9741.jpg)

  215. Sarah

    *g* I found this pic of Gary Oldman: http://n2.nabble.com/file/n2553678/039_9741.jpg
    I changed some details and now I’m sure he is the perfect cast for Al: http://www.freeimagehosting.net/image.php?07b628bba3.png

  216. Sinn

    OK, the ultimate pick for Trent is Hugo Weaving from Matrix… Mmmrs, Mmmorrgann…. (mmmr. Annndersonnn… get it!??)

  217. William C

    i think Robert Forster aka Arthur Petrelli from heroes would make a good Eden. plus Cristina Ricci would be a good choice for Ceri.

  218. Chrisy

    I watched Blade Trinity lately and thought that Jessica Biel kinda looked like I imagine Rachel to look…

  219. Antonio Rich

    I like E Lilly. Yes, i’m having a little trouble w/Rachel…right now i’ve got Amy Adams, Deborah Ann Woll, Anna Torv in that order. I like that Emile de Ravin…I was thinking Miranda Otto, Diane Kruger, Malin Akerman for Cerie right now. There are SO MANY characters! I’m going to tackle the Witches next week. Did you watch that Jamie Chung(Erica) video as she’s blabbering on and on…LOL it’s too perfect.

  220. Tiffany

    How about Evangiline Lilly (Kate aka “Freckles” from Lost) for Rachel.  For example, this scene is so Rachel IMO :)

    …and this one too – it totally makes me think of the scene where Rachel is in the everafter with Trent:

    Now that I think about Lost… 
    Emilie de Ravin (Claire) would be a good Ceri
    Matthew Fox (Jack) might make a good Rynn Cormel
    And Dominic Monaghan (Charlie) has that wispy blonde hair that lifts in a slight wind :) …if you make him clean-shaven he is pretty much how Trent looks in my mind.

  221. Antonio Rich

    Wow! There are SO many memorable characters to cast, especially when you don’t know how the movie script is going to look. I mean, will it concentrate on the “vampire storyline” that dominates much of the first 6 books? Or, will it start with Fistful of Charms(Kim’s favorite)? Or, will it be based on R&I First Year Graphic Novel? I researched everyone’s suggestions(they are REALLY good! But, try to include a picture/video) I decided to start with casting the Vampires. Here goes…

    • Chrisy

      Woo! You’re crazy! :D For Ivy, I vote for Summer Glau now. She kicks ass. :D

    • Antonio Rich

      Chrisy. I LOVE Summer too, i just wonder if she’s a movie star, you know…? What did you think of the Matt Bomer video? He’s starring in a USA Ntwk show starting tomorrow(oct 23rd)…

    • Kylie Ru

      Summer is absolutely amazing, and I really love her, but I can’t see her as Ivy. Olivia Wilde, though, I could see that.

    • Chrisy

      Antonio: Again I didn’t see any of Summer’s acting – I even didn’t know her at all. But she seems very… refreshing? Same thing with Mr. Bomer. Has to dye his hair blonde though. :) And since I am from Germany, I am not able to watch this show. Darn it.

    • Chrisy

      Kylie Ru: Hm. But Olivia has no asian eyes, no olive-touch skin… and I think she looks too much like all the beautful fake chicks you can get anywhere. Her attitude is wrong. Maybe she could change that. But.. I dunno. I don’t like her

    • Tiffany

      Hi Antonio!  Great ideas!  I love your choices for Kisten – this is how he looks in my mind too.
        
      OK Ivy…while I have to say I definitely became an Olivia Wilde fan after watching that video, I have to agree with Chrisie, she dosn’t have that “slightly Oriental cast” (which is also why in my mind at least, Ivy also doesn’t look entirely Asian either).  But also, if this makes any sense, she seems too whole and fun-loving, more of the prey than the predator, so to speak. Maybe we could cast her as Rachel…I think there is a moment in that video where she is feeling her new caps on her teeth ;).

      I have to say I haven’t found the Ivy in my head either, but so far I still like Jaime Murray for Ivy.  I can imagine her as having a “slightly Asian” look, plus I think she carries off both dangerous and sophisticated.  Here is a video link:

      I love that you put ideas out for so many characters.  Ben Kingsley as Piscary … I like that.  In my mind Piscary looks like Dio :)  I like your Skimmer also.  And Zach Levi as Peter is perfect! 

    • Tiffany

      Ok – coincidentally I watched Olivia Wilde in Year One right after posting this, not even knowing she would be in it. An I take it back – she definitely has that predator vibe going on ;). Just maybe not the self-tortured predator, though I think she could act it.

      So are you having trouble picturing the right Rachel too?

    • Antonio Rich

      It’s great to see these actors actually “act” before making decisions…I had only seen Jaime Murray in an interview before. I liked her although she may be a little too old for the part. You know who i thought of as i watched the clip? Ms Walker, the scary banshee from WWBC…

    • Tiffany

      I think she would be a great Mia also – the character Lila she played is full of that deviousness Mia has, so no doubt she’d be great. But too old to play Ivy? Woot?? She’s pretty much exactly Ivy’s age.

    • luxom

      I don’t know. I’d rather read than watch a movie. If a movie was created maybe it could depict when the characters were younger? It would be interesting to see how Jenks steals Matalina or how Rachel was in the make-a-wish camp before her memory is forgotten. Can’t wait till the next book after reading some clever cliff hangers…

  222. Samantha

    I totally love Kim Harrison. SO These are my picks so far.
    Rachel- Scarlett Pomers
    Ivy- Olivia Wilde
    Trent- Chris Pine
    Kist- Taylor Kitsch
    Nick- Nick D’ Agosto
    Minias- Johnny Depp
    Al- Stuart Townsend
    Quen- Alexander Skarsgaurd
    Keasley- Morgan Freeman

  223. Becca

    I always picture Jenks as a miniature Alan Tudyk. I’ve loved him since he played Steve the Pirate in Dodgeball. He was great in Firefly, Death at Funeral, etc. He’s funny, cute, and a fantastic actor.

    Anna Walton played Princess Nuala in Hell Boy 2. I picture Ceri like that character without the white skin and weird eyes.

  224. Raistlan

    And for Mineas Tim Omundson from Psych. (Lassiter)

  225. Raistlan

    Kim, I love your books. My dad was just browsing the web and found the first Hollows book on audio so he got it. We had to go to Nevada to visit his parents and listened to it the whole way there and back. Amazing books. My dad and I love them.

    Rachel – I dont know… My dad says Claire from Heroes…
    Ivy – Kate Beckinsale (KICK BUTT VAMP! Underworld says so)
    David – Hugh Jackman (With the Van Helsing look)
    Keasley – Hugh Laurie (I have no idea why… But I can just imagine him as Keasley)
    Nick – Ryan Reynolds?
    Trent – Matt Damon
    Al – Johnny Depp
    Ceri – I think that Miranda Otto would be a good Ceri (From LOTR)
    Newt – Halle Berry? Like in X-Men 3 as Storm.

  226. Teresa

    Ceri – Miranda Otto (she played Eowyn from LOTR2)

    Kim, my wife, Valerie, amd I listen to a lot of audio books and found you first with your, go figure, your last book, White Whitch Black Curse. We were hooked. We went back and ran the series. We are almost finished with The Outlaw Demon Wails and we want to make one request, loose the reader! Gigi may be great at other things, but after 6 editions by Marguerite, we can barely handle her bad vocial and mis-pronunciations. Now that I’ve vented, are you working Rachel’s next adventure? We are waiting with “brimstone” baited breath. Thanks for many a great laugh and time very well spent.

    Being a movie buff & a writer, Every time I read (and re-read) the Hollows books, it would run as a movie in my head.

    So my two cents ~

    Characters:
    IVY – First choice: Famke Jansen – though she would probably be too old to play it by the time it got to production. Jeanette Lee (pro pool player) would be a close second.
    Rachel – Scarlett Pomers. I wish I could send a photo, because she is an actress and looks the part to a tee!

  229. Jamie MN

    Okay I just surfed this while checking something else out, but if anyone has seen Sons of Anarchy, check out Charlie Hunnam & see if he would make a great Kisten! He’s totally got the look, but I haven’t seen the show to see how he acts, what his voice is like! This is my new pick for Kisten!

    • Antonio Rich

      I was researching him myself last night for my own list(he was also on a show called Undeclared when he was younger), and i really like him, but if anything, i see him more as Lee…He CAN act by the way.

  230. Chelsea

    Scratch that. Definitely Luke Goss for Piscary.

  231. Chelsea

    I always imagined Ceri as Anna Walton’s character (Princess Nuala) in Hellboy II. I think that’s exactly how she’s described, but without the lines on her face and the yellow eyes :P
    And for Piscary, I was thinking Tom Colicchio. I know he isn’t technically an actor, but he is sort of in the business.. and I know he looks happy when he smiles, but he can look pretty mean on the show Top Chef. That’s another plus! He’s already a chef! haha :)

  232. Jamie MN

    Wow, lots of good choices & I have done way too much research for this fun! But I love casting books while I read ‘em! My choices:

    Rachel – Rachel Lefevre or maybe Jena Malone
    Ivy – Devon Aoki is totally my Ivy or maybe Kristin Kreuk
    Jenks – Hunter Parrish, but the last episode of Bones had Reidar Larsen & he could be Jenks or even Jax

    Kisten – Alexander Skarsgard or Jensen Ackles
    Trent – I totally see Julian McMahon, but Jason Lewis could be good too
    Glenn – Dorian Gregory has always been my idea of him
    Ceri – Kristin Chenoweth or maybe Kirsten Dunst
    Keasley – Morgan Freeman, good choice
    Nick – I can’t quite find the right guy, but maybe Ryan Kwanten
    Al – Gary Oldman or maybe Ewan MacGregor

    • Robert

      Charlize Theron as Rachel or Ceri
      Ryan Reynolds as Kistin, or Jenks
      Got to go with Morgan freeman as Keasley
      and Gary Oldman as Al
      Chris Pine as Trent
      Gerard Butler as Minias, well, he has to be here somewhere.
      Natassia Malthe from Bloodrayne 2, would be a good choice for Ivy.

  233. Melissa

    Stuart Townsend is Al!!!

  234. Tzigane

    Just had to add I reakon Jena Malone would make a brillent Rachel not sure about any one else though :)

  235. Monique

    I think the Jensen Ackles scruffed up would makw a great Kisten. He’s got that cheeky attitude and he’s sexy.

  236. Maria

    OMG! I totally agree with you Chelsea! Chris Pine would be just perfect for Trent. Well I can’t imagine him look anything but stunning with white-blond hair *wohoo*

    As for Rachel – I think they should cast someone new or rather unknown, I don’t come up with someone suitable..

  237. Chrisy

    Johnny Depp for Big Al…

  238. Chelsea

    I think Chris Pine would make a PERFECT Trent Kalamack. I mean, just look at him. He looks wealthy and smug, much like Trent. I think he would be great.

  239. shauna

    I reckon The Hollows would be pretty good as a TV series, more time for characters and story, someone could even get a spin off series…
    ‘Nick: life as a crap for brains’ I’d watch it – if he died in the end…

    • LOL….

      and I agree with you…it´s obvious that tv shows are the new movies ;-)

    • Heh heh heh Nick is an ass. I still remember reading that whole ‘just up and leaving’ saga and then having to go to sleep and I actually ground my teeth in my sleep I was so mad at him! And yea, they would have to make it into like a mini series or a proper tv series because making nooks into movies never works! It’s all good for the people who haven’t read the books because they don’t know what they’re missing. But they always miss big chunks out of them and swap bits around (i.e Twilight, Harry Potter) and it annoys the hell out of book fans. Although with True Blood they pretty much rearranged half the books lol.

      I was thinking, I really don’t like High school musical, but that guy whats his name? You know, the main singing guy… anyway, bleach his hair, spoon feed him some attitude and life experience, and he could make a good Jenks.

  240. Juliet

    All these actors and actresses, but who is going to direct???

    I vote for:

    Baz Luhrmann…yay, applaus, applaus :-)

  241. Piscary-Robert Denero- Trent-Mat Damon-Ivy-Angelina Jolie-Al-Jonny Depp-Ceri-Michele Phiffer- Rachel- Kate Beckinsale -

    • Erin

      I think Michele would be to old for Ceri but Robert I could see as Piscary and Kate looks more like an Ivy especially from underworld black hair looks fierce on her

    • Lyra Nicole

      I am soooo with you that Johnny Depp would be perfect for Al… I love the way he can play a character that is evil yet still lovable at the same time. I think that he would be able to pull off the complexities that make up Al’s persona in a way that no other could!!!

  242. shauna

    Oh yeah, i forgot about her (Jaime Murray) she would be good, wouldnt she- i hope theyed let her keep the accent.
    I cant think of anyone for Nick, i can never picture him well….maybe Jake Gyllenhaal (hope i spelt that right)

  243. Tiffany

    I was thinking of a character from Dexter for Ivy too – but I was thinking of Jaime Murray who played Lila in season 2 – she has those almond shaped eyes and exotic look. Mmmm. God save me from myself, as a favorite author might say ;)

    How about Minnie Driver with her hair dyed red for Rachel? Nice square jaw, strong and venerable at once…I like it.

    Also, how about Hayden Christensen for Jenks?

    • Antonio Rich

      I really like Minnie Driver, but by the time they make this film i think she might be better as Rachel’s mother…

    • Tiffany

      LOL – I don’t know about Rachel’s *mom* (Rachel is 27-30, Minnie is 39), but you’re right. Damn…how long ago was Good Will Hunting anyway?!?

  244. shauna

    I think Jennifer Carpenter (From Dexter) could play Ivy.
    I had an idea for Rachel, but i saw Sues comment up there and I changed my mind. Rachelle Lefevre would be pretty good.

  245. AJ

    IVY – Karen Cliche

  246. Stacie

    What about Joanne Kelly for Ivy? She played the vampire Bianca on The Dresden Files, though mentioning that show makes me think that Paul Blackthorn would make a great David as well. I could see either Alyson Hannigan or Amy Adams as Rachel, and I could definitely see Topher Grace as Nick and Allyn Hyde as Jenks…

  247. Juliet

    We have the perfect Rachel here in Germany…but she is an author (one of the best) and not an actress so….relax :-)

    http://www.fotoecken.biz/alexa/images/IM1Y4806.JPG

    @sabrina: Eva is great, but I stay with Jennifer ;-)

  248. Sabrina

    What about Eva Green for Ivy? I think this woman is sexy as hell.

    • Erin

      HELL YES!!!! That is all I have to say, she is sexy and gives off the perfect vibe just in her pictures alone and in Casino Royale she is confident and seems safe with just enough hint of danger lurking underneath to make you think twice about crossing her path. Yess yess yes and again yes she is absolutely PERFECT!!!

  249. Juliet

    Glenn: Bryton McClure
    Ivy: Jennifer Connelly
    Rachel: Anna Torv
    Trent: Patrick Wilson
    Jenks: Hunter Parrish

    Just like they look in my head ;-)

  250. Chrisy

    I love Bryan Greenberg… maybe he could be Glenn… or someone… anyone.

    • Chrisy

      I found my perfect Kisten! Jensen Ackles! This video convinced me that he’s the perfect choice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0Fz_egtEgc
      He is a play-child (does this word exist in english? …) just like Kist. And he acts like he’s the man…. man.

    • Natalie

      OMG!!! YES!!! Jensen Ackles would be the perfect Kisten!!! I totally agree!!
      mh another opportunity would be Jason Dohring … but he could be Al aswell

      and … as Minias XD JOHNNY DEPP …

    • Antonio Rich

      Chrisy. I like J Ackles too and have watched his tv show Supernatural…but, i gather you haven’t seen the show, because if you did you’d see that his acting & speaking mannerisms closely resemble Sylvester Stallone! I could see him starring in the next Martin Scorcese film before i could see him play the gentlemanly part of Kisten. I could see him as Art or maybe David maybe…

    • Chrisy

      Hmm.. you’re right Antonio Rich, I didn’t see anything with him. I just liked his attitude in the video. ^^

  251. Cuthien Moonleaf

    After months of searching, we’ve finally found the perfect Jenks. Allan Hyde is almost unknown. He has the body build necessary and would look good as a blond with green eyes.

    Gary Oldman would make the perfect Al. As seen in Bram Stoker’s Dracula,

  252. Rob

    Kisten- Alexander Skaarsgard (Eric from True Blood)
    Trent- Chris Evans (Push, Fantastic Four)
    Ivy- Kate Beckinsale (Underworld)
    Nick- Nick D’Agosto (Fired Up)
    Rachel- Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica from True Blood)
    Jenks- Topher Grace (That 70′s Show, Spiderman 3)

  253. Jamie MN

    I have one suggestion to add, which is Cary Elwes for Jenks. I can totally see his style, a la Princess Bride, with that mix of humor from Hot Shots! He’s probably getting a little old (they all want the characters to be so young these days!) but I still think he’s got that roguish look that Jenks definitely should have!

    I can only imagine Kim Harrison playing Rachel Morgan!

  254. Sue, Chicago

    I’m still sticking to my pick for Kisten. He’s a canadian actor named David Paetkau. He’s currently on the show Flashpoint. If you look him up on IMDb.com, they even have a picture of him with the beard stubble. Since seeing that picture, no one else comes close!

    My pick for Rachel would be Rachel Lefevre. I know she’s in Twilight, but she’s still the closest I’ve seen to my idea of Rachel.

  255. Fan(g)girl

    My personal favorite choice for Trent would have to be Aaron Eckhart.
    I think Lucy Liu would be my choice for Ivy.

    • Abrelle Poole

      Lucy Liu would make a smoldering Ivy… she can definitely do kick ass and attitude; toss up between her and Angelina Jolie?

  256. Angel

    Oh and Mika Boorem for Rachel

  257. Angel

    I think Kristin Kreuk from Smallville would do a good Ivy.

  258. Chantal

    Even though she is too young right now, I think Alia Shawkat would make an excellent Rachel Morgan. I’ve only seen this actress in Arrested Development, but the spunk, attitude, and looks are pretty good :)

    Not sure about the other ones yet…

  259. Angelique

    Hmmm…who to cast…

    David…Hugh Jackman (After the Van Helsing ref, who else could he be really?)
    Al……Ewan Mcgregor.
    Jenks……Peter Sumpter (kid who played Peter Pan in the 2003 film…not such a little kid anymore)
    Nick….Topher Grace
    Ceri-Anne Hathaway but blonde like in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland
    Keasly….Morgan Freeman
    Glenn…..Dwayne Johnson

    Trent….(Maybe Ryan Philippe still thinking about how to cast for Trent)
    Still puzzling out Rachel and Ivy….I looked up Sabrina’s pick for Kisten, I could go for him.

    • Celina

      I agree with all your picks! Trent I’m stumped. Rachel I first thought maybe someone like Milla Jovovich and Ivy would be played nicely by Angelina Jolie when she was in the tomb raider movies or Kristen Kreuk would work for Ivy as well. But Angelina holds more of the forbidden sexual energy that Ivy gives off I think.

    • Celina

      Kate Beckinsale I can also see playing Ivy as well!

    • Melissa

      I always see the guy who played Smith on Sex in the City as Trent. His name is Jason Lewis, I think.

    • Melissa

      Opps, I forgot to say Topher Grace as Nick, PURE GENUIS!!!!

    • Haha Ewan McGregor would make such a good Al. I don’t think it’s possible to find someone good enough to play Trent, he is way too..hmm whats the word? Unique? Something like that. Not saying that the other characters aren’t, but that I dunno, I find Trent very out-of-this-world if you get me. It would be hard to find someone magnetic enough to play him.

    • Sinn

      OK, the ultimate pick for Trent is Hugo Weaving from Matrix… Mmmrs, Mmmorrgann…. (mmmr. Annndersonnn… get it!??)

    • Janis

      In reference to what Sinn said, I can’t picture Hugo Weaving as Trent, mostly because he’s a little too old, but I could definitely see him as Al.

    • Jude Law for Trent. I had thought Kisten before but he’s probably too old.

    • Antonio Rich

      Topher Grace is inspired! That’s the one that’s perfect.

    • Jenks……Peter Sumpter (kid who played Peter Pan in the 2003 film…not such a little kid anymore) <— Just yesterday a friend and I were talking about what a perfect Jenks he'd be!

  260. Sabrina

    I’ve never really thought about which actor I would like to see as someone from the Hollows but when I watched “Wolverine” at the cinema and Taylor Kitsch made his first appearance all I could think of was: He would be a fantastic Kisten! So, yes, he’s my Kist.

    • Chrisy

      I totally agree!

    • Nynaeve

      Today I found a picture of a German actress – her name is Milena Karas and I think she’d do an acceptable Ivy…

      @ Sabrina: I’m right there with you – Taylor Kitsch is my Kisten, too!

    • Celina

      OMG!!! I totally agree with you but I also thought of James Marsters for Kisten. But now I”m not sure anymore! Ahhh!i like ‘em both!!
