SWEETS: The Casting Call

It seems like every convention I attend, the topic of a SWEETS movie adaptation comes up and everyone has their own idea on which actors would be great for each particular role. Sometimes those ideas are fantastic, other times, no so much. I thought it might be fun to hear your opinion on the subject.

Who would you cast in the roles of Curt, Jeff, The Killer, and Palmer? And which director would you pick? What about Gabrielle, Dr. LeFleur, Maurice Culpepper or any of the other supporting cast?

Just remember, I make comics not movies, so this is just all in good fun and will have no impact on actual casting if we ever do make a movie. Those decisions would be up to whoever decides to write the check.

My favorite list overall will get a signed copy of the SWEETS paperback, and I might throw in a few more winners in various categories if I feel inspired.

NOTE: To qualify for the free paperback, your list MUST be posted as a reply directly to this blog post.

This is dream casting right? Budgets and success formulas be damned:

Bryan Cranston as Curt

Adrian Lester as Jeff (Adrian is British but 6 seasons of Hu$tle show his range)

Jamie Bell as The Killer (also British but I found him terrifying in Retreat)

and Jack Nicholson as Palmer
