Inspired by my the NEW PODCAST my friends patrondebris and papersquared have started making, Bellwether Friends (listen now, thank me later), I recently re-listened to one of my VERY FAVORITE books, Bellwether by Connie Willis (which I first received as a gift from the aforementioned patrondebris). IGNORE ITS WEIRD COVER, this book is just an incredibly satisfying romantic comedy about chaos theory, true love, scientific discovery, ridiculous trends, and the absurdity of corporate culture. While listening, I was struck ONCE AGAIN by what a terrific movie it would make. And, EVEN MORE THAN THAT, I realized that I knew exactly who should play Bennett O’Reilly, the red-haired, freckled, trend-proof-to-the-point-of-comically-bad-dressing chaos theorist. The kind, humane, trend-proof-to-the-point-of-comically-bad-dressing Benedict Cumberbatch. Really guys really, he would do SUCH a good job with this part. Once I started thinking that, I couldn’t get him out of my head, which left me with only one choice: Fancasting all the remaining main characters, Duh. For the book’s protagonist, Sandra Foster, the politely exasperated, fad-researching, quietly brilliant statistician, I thought and I thought and couldn’t get anyone right until I hit on Lucy Liu: 
She’s got this vital ability to carry off trends without ever being owned by them and she radiates kindness and loveliness and has just the right quiet, self-possessed humor to be Sandy. 

For Shirl, the masterfully efficient but loathed because she smokes assistant who helps bring Bennett and Sandra together, Susan Sarandon in old lady drag would be inspired casting: 

For Dr. Alicia Turnbull, the terrifyingly perfect, corporate-minded, drone-like biologist and romantic red-herring for Bennett’s affection, the only possible casting choice is Jennifer Garner: 

And, MY MOST INSPIRED CASTING. for the fad-obsessed, sullen, life-ruining, reverse-fairy-godmother, whole book lynchpin: Krysten Ritter, who is exactly a smart and canny enough performer to play dumb with perfect comic timing AND just adorable enough that she’ll be able to pull off duct tape forehead brands in a way people would WANT to replicate: 

Now someone just has to make this movie as soon as possible, please. I’m already impatient waiting for it. 

OMG brilliant choice for Flip! Just brilliant. Thank you @mrsfridaynext!

Ok look either use our pencil sharpener (three feet away from this very table) or CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELF. You are not a squirrel.

Thanks so much for destroying that copy of *True to the Game III* before stealing it. At least we know it’s gone and no one will ever be able to check it out. Go you.

I’m doing a persuasive speech and this would really help me out.

If you think animals should be adopted from shelters, reblog.

If you think animals should be bought from pet stores, like.

*REBLOGS FURIOUSLY*

always adopt - you will be saving some poor animals life, will know what their temperament is like AND cut down on people over breeding animals with the sole purpose of making money.
