Casting Call: Charmed

This Casting Call is a followup to the one for Cursed. Bruno and Melina, the main characters, continue, of course, but Charmed goes deeper into some of the secondary characters. It's a great cast!

Bruno. Shedding his chimera curse, he's slowly transforming into a man. An irresistibly handsome man. :)

Still, he has secrets. It may be a good thing his treatments keep him unconscious a good bit of the time because he has a strong compulsion to reveal them to Melina.

Goran Visnjic is Bruno.

Melina Weaver has given up everything for Bruno. Career gone, her life revolves around him. Unfortunately for her, he isn't the greatest company (unconscious much of the time, as noted above). Which leaves her curious mind craving stimulation. She finds plenty in Bruno's library. But it likewise creates another problem, and more secrets between them.

Amanda Seyfried is Melina.

You meet Bruno's longtime friend, Marco Roagna, in much more detail in Charmed.

Long ago, Marco joined the Council because of its easy access to women. Now, he's grown tired of the shallow life and wants something more meaningful. He's likewise grown tired of the Council, and its outdated dictatorship. Which, as you might suspect, puts him in an awkward - and precarious - position.

Richard Armitage is Marco (I'm sure he can manage the Italian accent!)

Fiorella Battaglino is fairly new to the Council. She's somewhat of a mystery because she says little, but sees all.

Marco's intrigued by her, but isn't sure of her loyalties. He finds out in Claimed, the third book. :)

Rachel Weisz is Fiorella.

There's more to Luca Petulengro than meets the eye. A powerful gypsy warlock, he has longtime ties to Bruno as well. The Romanian gypsies want to break free of the Council, and Luca's joined with other rogue magicks.

Gerard Butler is Luca.

Another rogue magick, Fiona, is a bit of a loose cannon. You never know when she'll explode in anger - or shift into a wolf. Or a raven.

She was a lot of fun to write. :)

Olivia Wilde is Fiona.

Fiona was still not as fun to write as Bean Sidhe. Bean's a banshee with an attitude. And a sarcastic wit, which she never hesitates to use whenever appropriate.

Bean is instrumental in organizing the rogue magicks against the Council.

I am a huge fan of Helen Mirren's. She is so multifaceted as an actor, I'm sure she'd make an amazing Bean.

And that's my dream cast! You can imagine your own, if you like. Buy Charmed!

With Weisz and Wilde in the movie, I'd definitely watch it!
