I’m pretty sure every writer fantasizes about their novel being made into a movie and even goes so far as to think about who would play their main characters. I know I have.
It’s taken me months to find someone who I would pick to play Thompson in One Night. In the last few weeks, though, I’ve run across a few potential candidates.
For example, this kid, Dash Williams, from Fresh Off the Boat could play Thompson in about 5 years. He’s a little young now, but I totally see him as Thompson in the future. If you ever watch the show he’s equal parts weird yet endearing.
Noah Galvin from The Real O’Neals could also play Thompson. He would need to dye his hair blond, and I still think he’s a little too pretty for Thompson’s character lol, but he has the right comedic timing.
As for Johnny, I’ve always pictured Theo James donning the white jumpsuit. I think it would be a great challenge for him to play an Elvis impersonator.
I could also see ABC news anchor/reporter David Muir as Johnny. He’s about ten years too old to play him, but I totally see Johnny’s face in his.
What about you?
Any ideas for the One Night cast or your own novels?
