…Which actors and actresses would you prefer to play the roles in the work?
Here’s how we do it.
Choose any work you’ve read on NS and suggest who you think can play the role if adapted to screen.
For example, for JOIN THE QUEUE by @TolaO , I would choose the Naija comedian Basketmouth to play the role of ‘Amaziah’. The guy has a way with making issues like the one in the story into a laughing matter.
And to add to that: I think Chidi Mokeme suits the role because he really cuts that player figure for me perfectly. I love Ekwi’s voice! I just have this feeling that the MC in @fiyinsiku‘s “Love is like an Opiod” is a well-spoken lady with a certain swag about her, and Ekwi cuts this figure perfectly for me.
@jaywriter,Ellen Page?I liked her in Inception but she hardly looks like the character.Remember Ekundayo is half Nigerian,half Hawaiian. She’s a good actress but I don’t think she could pull this off. Also the person has to be tall.She’s only 5’1″.Ryan Gosling is too old.
But I see a sadly-sweet faced Ellan Page exchanging letters in the prison with Ryan Gosling. It’ll be sweet. Ryan Gosling can be changed to the guy in (500) Days of Summer, Inception and Dark Knight Rises. Think his name is something Gordon-Hewitt. But still Ellan Page for me.
@jaywriter,how are you going to explain Zac Effron without changing the plot?
I think Rihanna has enough baggage to pull it off.Also her eyes are what I am looking for.She just need some dark blue lenses.There is also a grace and elegance about her that fit the character.
