Paul, Rebecca, Elizabeth, and Conrad all worked today and they rocked. Just terrific. Tomorrow is the first day for Valerie, Raoul and Joanne. Can't wait to see them.
A couple things worth noting.
- Yes, yes, we cast a petite Irish-American for Susan and a striking Cuban-American for Murphy. The irony is not lost on us. But they were the best actresses for the parts. And we think you'll see our point when the movie airs.
- Personally, it's really nice having Elizabeth Thai in a pilot where she doesn't have to wear a bug suit the entire time. And she kicks even more ass as Ancient Mai than she did as Refractions of Dawn, if that's possible.
- Conrad Coates looks awesome in a dark purple striped tailored suit. And the man can handle a sword.
- We didn't even know that Raoul was a super-hip bluesman when we cast him. Ignorant American bastards that we are.
- We're still working on Bob. More to come.
