As release week continues along (Hey, I could have thrown us waaay back with a Sid & Marty Kroft reference: “I said LAUNCH not LUNCH,” but I didn’t. And you’re welcome), I thought I’d give your word-reading eyes a rest by showing you pictures–mostly location scouting, but some fantasy casting is under the cut–that I used as points of reference throughout The Bones Of You.
But first… It’s important that you know that in my mind, these were my inspirations for Moira and Dough Face:
But wait, there’s more! So much more…
Like Big Mike. Big Mike is one of my favorite characters, and not just because I had the visual of The Most Handsome Man On Planet Earth in mind. (Okay, Top 5 Most Handsome Men, because Idris Elba exists.) But like, picture Joe in about ten years. Yeah, that’s the stuff. (I promise I’m not a creep.)
Cambridge. Look at this magical, beautiful city.
And of course, Janos. Is there any reason why he and Moira wouldn’t have been drawn to one another?
But I feel it’s important to meet (my mental image of) Oliver, sitting in his empty apartment, looking up Seth’s play. In his britches. As one does.
I just… I feel like we, as a community, need these, too.
Don’t you feel better? I know I do. Whew!
And of course, the young-faced Seth who captured Oliver’s heart back when they were 16.
But we should see him as The Fair Youth.
You know, we should also see him shirtless. It’s only fair.Oh, how I love to think of the two of them grinning and flirting while punting. Hopefully you do, too.
Sigh. It’s fun to dream. Even more fun to think of all of these great things and write a story about it.
