Dream Team

Does anyone else do this? Sometimes when I get stuck writing, I imagine my book is a movie and cast it; then I imagine creating the character for the particular actor I've chosen. My dream team for The Golden Mean :

Aristotle: David Thewlis
Pythias: Sarah Polley
Herpyllis: Catherine Keener
Philip: John Malkovich
Olympias: Julianne Moore or Zoe Wannamaker
Callisthenes: Gael Garcia Bernal
Carolus: Christopher Plummer
Alexander: hmmm....

David Thewlis ... there's a guy who seems to have fallen away. This scene is from Naked, no?

This is indeed from Naked. I guess Thewlis got sucked into the Harry Potter machine.... I love the look on his face in this picture - very Aristotelian! Thanks for you comment.

If and when you get the BBC's 'Outnumbered' you might think it would be worth waiting until the curly haired boy in it is old enough to be Alexander. Once you've seen him you'll understand.
