When I was reading MHI, I had the character of Mordechai Byreika pictured as Michael Fairman, who played Adelai Niska on Firefly. He seems to fit the part.



For Holly Newcastle, it's tough to come up with an actress that fits. Most can't pull off a damaged, genuine tough-girl attitude and aren't chesty enough to fit the character.

Maybe Kristen Bell? She did a pretty good job of a damaged girl on Heroes.



Maybe too sweet-looking and not seedy enough. Not sure.

    Desert Rat - Good pick on number 1 but I thought he died... 

    Holly Newcastle would be a tough one to cast. 

    So any takers on Julie's dad?

    I could see Hugh Laurie for Julie's dad. He's got that wild-eyed look that hints of madness and forbidden knowledge of eldritch secrets Man Was Not Meant To Know.

    And according to IMDB, Michael Fairman is still alive and kickin', so that's good.

    Larry, it just occured to me that if MHI is ever made into a movie, you should insist that every single actor involved undergo rigorous live-fire training.

    Oh, and random thought to keep this on-topic; How about Diora Baird (aka the green chick in the new Star Trek movie) as Holly?

    EDIT: OH! and how about John Rhys-Davies as the Old Man?

    Michael Fairman seems to pretty much perfectly fit how I was visualizing Byreika, but it would be hard to think of him as The Old Man, rather than someone more... solid.

    Julie's mom could still be played by a younger woman like Zeta Jones because she, being a vamp, prolly wouldn't show her age. I think Seymour, tho' setting the standard for hot-hot-hot in her heyday, is a bit old now tho' still classy.

    Didn't Julie's mom look virtually identical to Julie? Identical enough to fool Grant, and even Owen couldn't tell the difference when he was mackin' on her face to face.

    The same actress would work for both characters. A little creative makeup to change her look a bit, remove the glasses, and there you go.  ;)
