cast your villian!

Nicole at WORD for Teens is having a really cool poll and giveaway. She's asking readers to cast their favorite villain. Simply pick a villain in any book and an actor you think should play them in a movie. Easy, right? So run on over and enter...and you could win a copy of The Body Finder and an ARC of Desires of the Dead. How cool is that?

So here's my uber-short job as a Casting Director. I'm choosing High Priestess Neferet from the House of Night series by PC & Kristin Cast. She's super-evil and devilishly wicked. And I think it'll take a tough actress to portray such a devious, menacing character.

If they make a movie (which rumors are they will) I would love to see Neferet played by Darryl Hannah.

I know what you're probably thinking. How could the mermaid from Splash be mean? I have 3 words for you:

Watch Kill Bill


  1. oh i can so see her in my mind she has a wide acting range love her

  2. I've never read House of Night, and I've never heard of Darryl Hannah before, but she certainly looks like a villain in that picture!

  3. I haven't read House of Night but I did think Darryl played the evil lady in Kill Bill really well. I enjoyed it when Uma kicked her butt though. LOL. Great choice for a bad lady me thinks! ;)

  4. I love her, too Joanna...she's great in everything!

    Golden Eagle, do an imdb search and watch some of her stuff. She's really good!

    Talei I agree! She was great in KB, but of course I was rooting for Uma!

  5. I'm a Daryl Hannah fan; I see her as quite a versatile actress. I'm so glad she was never type-cast as the pretty blond.


  6. Donna, I 100% agree. She so easily could've been written off as a ditz after Splash, but lucky for us she's super-versatile!
