This will be a different kind of association game. Let's pretend that I'm casting a big movie, and I'm looking for just the right type for the following roles in a romantic thriller. Who would you recommend for each role? Should you consider the chemistry between the actors? Or go for the oddball setup? (I had three hours sleep last night, so forgive me if I sound kind of punchy. I'm still editing and typing a bunch of stories for the publishing center at my son's school.)
Who quickly comes to your mind when you read these brief character descriptions?
Our Leading Man must be quirky and edgy.
Our Leading Lady must be brazen and vulnerable.
Our Villain must be conceited and adventurous.
My first thoughts were leading man Jamie Foxx, leading lady Jodie Foster and villain Robert Downey, Jr. Why that combo came to mind, I really don't know. Interesting to think of Foxx and Foster running through the dark alleys of Paris. I'm having a hard time picturing the romantic scenes though. I can definitely see Robert Downey as the crafty villain. I think this may be a comedy with this cast!
If you're game, I'd love to hear about your casting trio. Try to go with what first comes to your mind. It's funny to see what everyone thinks. I'm still not too sure if this game makes sense. Thanks for humoring me anyway! I better go back and type some more and more and more...
