Nathan Fillion meet Bill Rowland
Hello again. Please forgive me. I haven’t blogged in quite a while. I simply had nothing I wanted to say. Well, I do, now.
I can’t and won’t presume to speak for all novelists, but with both my novels, especially PASSWORD: DEATH, I have spent time thinking about which actor and/or actress fit the characters best if the stories were ever made into films. Who would they be?
Every actor I try to imagine playing Bill Rowland falls short in some way or another; something, some characteristic or emotional challenge eliminates them from my mental list. Any actor playing the role must have a large emotional arsenal at his disposal. Bill is a very complex man who carries deep emotional scars, yet he is strong and determined, anyone who tries to push him around regrets it, he’s ruggedly handsome, he is caring and can be very tender and sweet, he routinely exhibits that mischievous little boy quality in his eyes, in his voice and in his actions, and finally he is capable of unbelievably cold-hearted violence when the situation calls for it. Bill Rowland/Nathan Fillion. Damn, just thinking about it gives me goose bumps.
If you have read PASSWORD: DEATH, just think about it for a bit, and you’ll see what I see! I haven’t asked my co-author and partner in crime, Robin Zeller, what he thinks, but I have a feeling he would feel the same as I.
Whether I watch his portrayal of Mal Reynolds in “Firefly” or relish each episode of “Castle”, I see Bill. Come to think of it, Stana Katic would be absolutely perfect as Laura. Wow!
PASSWORD: DEATH is available at Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble it is available as an eBook in all formats including Kindle and Nook. Have some fun. Read it, and in your mind’s eye picture Nathan Fillion as Bill and Stana Katic as Laura. If you wish, please peruse my website to get more information.
It has been a long time since I could honestly say if asked, “yes, I most certainly have a favorite actor. His name is Nathan Fillion.” He’s stunningly handsome without being pretty, he is a very talented actor with an impressive emotional range, and he has a voice that, when he speaks, is so rich, smooth and perfectly pitched, it becomes as soothing as oil on a blister. All right, a little prejudice crept into that last part, but to tell the truth, I would be content to listen to him read the phone book!
So, to any producer or filmmaker out there, say someone like Joss Whedon, there is a novel that might just interest you. To anyone reading this, please pass the word on. Maybe if the fates are with Robin and me, we will catch the attention of Mr. Fillion or Mr. Whedon. Come on, guys, it would be a great film!
