Cast It! So now if you were the casting the movie version of this book. Who would you cast? Who are the actors that you were imagining while reading the book?
First let’s start with the Mocha Girl. Alicia Black. She seems to be a young lady who has it all together. She was well taken care of by her dad and the men in her life. She is a Nordstroms and not TJMaxx shopper. I have one women in mind for her, Kerry Washington. She is a powerhouse actress that would bring something to Alicia’s character to make her “real”.
Who did I pick for Pastor JT Valentine? I am glad you asked. First Kimberla Roby Lawson said he was… He was almost too good to be true, what with his at least six-foot-two body frame, flawlessly smooth skin, coal-black wavy hair, and pearly-white teeth. Ok, I had a hard time with this one. I want to cast Jesse Martin in everything. *sigh* But I think Boris Kodjoe would be perfect and he is a hottie that fits the bill and I can see him at the pulpit of a mega church.
For Alicia’s dad, Reverend Curtis Black has to be an old school actor that can express his feelings with a look. Old enough to be her dad and still got it! Denzel Washington!!!! Of course! Enough said.
I would love to see break out actresses, non-traditional actresses and underrated actresses cast in the roles of the other women.
Who would you cast in the roles? Any favorites?
