Dream Cast - Chrestomanci series
If you haven’t read Diana Wynne Jones’ Chrestomanci books, it’s a children’s fantasy series set in a series of alternate (but related) worlds, it’s amazing, and you should go straight to the library and check out Charmed Life right now. I set out to do a fan cast for the whole series, which turned out to be ridiculously difficult and time-consuming and I got tired of trying to think of child actors by the time I got to Conrad’s Fate. So I’ve just done the first two books.

Dream cast - American Gods
I knew about halfway through reading American Gods that I was going to do a dream cast post for it. I didn’t find out until later that, just like A Visit From the Goon Squad, another of my favorite books I “casted,” it’s going to be made into an HBO miniseries. So, they could OBVIOUSLY use my help!
Dream Cast - A Visit From the Goon Squad
So, I’m not sure how they’re going to adapt A Visit From the Goon Squad (which has become one of my top five favorite books ever) into an HBO series. However, I DO have opinions about how they should cast it, and since making up dream casts is one of my favorite time-wasters, I thought I’d give it a go.
I’ve been re-reading this gem of a book—it comes highly recommended, btw—and amusing myself by casting actors for the movie version in my head. Read it, then revisit and tell me what you think.
Ruso: Eric Bana
Valens: Jude Law (smarmy!)
Tilla: Claire Danes
Priscus: Tom Hollander (who else can you imagine painting his head but Mr. Collins?)
There! Perfect! Someone make this, please.
