. . . One More Challenge

Ok, I had to take part in the one! The Lost Entwife wants you to:
Here is your question: Think of your favorite book – has it been made into a movie? If not (and maybe you’ll need to go to your 2nd favorite book and so on), tell me if you’d like to see it made into a movie and pick one character from the book and give me information on which actor you’d love to see cast in the part. Make your post as fun as possible, tell me why you think the movie would be amazing and why the actor/actress you chose would be perfect in the part!
I could have a great time with this one! Here's my choice. This may not be my favorite book of all time, but it's one I would die to see made into a movie. I would pick (and I feel sort of sheepish because I just picked Shannon Hale for another one, but still) Shannon Hale's Austenland! I just thought this book was so much fun. I've been looking for a fun "modern" twist on being "sucked into" the Austen world, and I had read a few others that were totally underwhelming. But Hale, she never disappoints. The funny thing is, as I was reading this book, it sort of FELT like I was watching a movie. I was completely charmed and entranced, and I just about flipped at the ending, it was great. It would be fantastic on the big screen!

So . . . I've got to cast Mr. Darcy's "twin," Mr. Nobely, because seriously, that's the most fun. So here he is--drumroll please:

Is it just coincidence that his name is Darcy, just one letter off? I think not! =) I think he would be perfect, with that great chiseled face. He was the male lead in Confessions of a Shopaholic, and even though that part isn't really close to Mr. Nobley, I think he could do brooding quite well. Yeah, most definitely. I can just see him with some long sideburns and a great tailored jacket--delicious!!

And if this book has been made into a movie and I just missed it somehow... somebody tell me!! =)
