My favorite part of being an author is creating characters with secrets and hidden pasts. No matter how minor or major their role is I can't seem to help myself from including some mystery during their development. During many interviews I've been asked the question, "Who would your dream cast of actors be if your book were made into a movie." My first answer is, "A producer with a large budget!" You'll see why when your read the list below.
Lukas Bucklin - Clint Eastwood. Lukas is a multi-billionaire who takes matters in his own hands. He also has secrets. Big secrets! Clint could consolidate some roles in the movie and cut costs. He could act in the role I created, produce, and direct the movie.
Caitlin Martel - Sandra Bullock. Caitlin is an accomplished scientist and executive but at times is a bit quirky and too trusting, even when she begins receiving threats and cryptic messages.
Tomas Medina - Josh Duhamel. Tomas is a Senior Special Agent with the FBI. He's thrust into the investigation of threats Caitlin has received and plays an intregal role in the plot. However, he has some comedy scenes as well.
Jack Spencer - Nick Nolte. Jack is a former District Attorney. He's pretty much a straightlaced and play it by the book kind of guy. However, when he revealed to his daughter that he was adopted, he didn't tell her everything.
Scott Martel - Nicholas Cage. Scott is Caitlin's husband and Tomas's boss. He's a very serious character and trusts no one. However, he holds a piece of the puzzle which Tomas find's in Scott's FBI background check.
Barry Solerno - Tom Hanks. I wrote the character of Barry when I reached an impasse and realized I needed someone or something to catapult the past into the present. Barry ended up being my favorite character. He has his own demons he must deal with and plays a very complex role in the plot with his loyalties shifting from one moment to the next.
I've had the opportunity to bring some of these characters to life in ficticious interviews.
