Yeah man Sorry. I assumed anyone contributing to casting "What if's?"  had read the book in order to make conections from characters to actors. My mistake.

    Does that mean I shouldn't mention the scene where Julie is ritually sacrificed by the Servants of Cthulhu in the crumbling ruins of Innsmouth?

    Yeah, that kinda sucked. I mean, it was good writing and all, and really cool, but I really wanted Owen to get the girl in the end.  :'(

    Ah, yeah, that was lame. I was expecting Franks to at least put up a fight, but he just ran and cried, while Meyers went after Skippy with a chair leg.

    Gotta get down to BN and pick it up.
    Should have known there was some dark family secret, as it was alluded to in the early chapters.

    Wasn't really takin' the idea that seriously (Still likin' Hugh Laurie for the role), I just remembered that bit in Armageddon where he goes completely-off-the-wall nuts with the minigun and figured "what the heck? can't hurt to put it out there."

    Hey, just throwing it out there, but I am kinda a fan of Taktarov. I think that he has the bulk, face and posture to be an agent Franks. If not, he could be useful elsewhere.
    If his accent wasn't so thick, and he were a better actor, he would be a good Owen, I think.

    Tactarov is a fun fighter no doubt.  But to lead the movie of MHI we need a real actor.  No WWE guys, no Football players.  A real stage and movie experienced guy.  Someone who could carry a movie without guns and monsters.

    I think I just found a good match for the physical description of Owen - Topher Jones
    Never seen him act though.  But his bio says he joined the Army at 17 and also worked as an EMT before pursuing acting full time.

    Sorry man thats not an actor.  Thats an extra  :devillol  He'd be the MHI equivalent of a RED SHIRT. 

    I studied acting for almost a decade so I have pretty high standards.  And a movie like MHI will live and die on the guys playing Owen/Julie/Tripp/Milo and Earl.  thats your core right there.
