Who would you like to see cast for the show and for what parts?

I think the hardest part would be Jenks. He'd require the most in special effects and live action. There just aren't that many 4 inch tall leading men out there.

Rachel - I thought at one time I'd love to see Rachel Weisz as her, now I'm not sure, I think someone else, maybe Lake Bell.
For David - I can only think of two options - Hugh Jackman or Brendan Frasier.
Hope to see more ideas from others.

As far as Jenks go, they did fine with Julia Roberts in Hook. And that was how long ago?? It'd be pretty sweet to have an actual actor play him instead of a computer animation, in my opinion.

Though I must admit that I hear Rob Zombie's "DRAGULA" track playing at the beginning of movie when we first meet IVY (be still my heart) ! pat
Now, that show SUPERNATURAL, I do really enjoy that and the Dresden Files those shows rock !
History channel now showing the History of Dracula Family ! I just cannot get enuf of the Vamp Stuff LOL !

A movie or TV series seems like a no-brainer to me too!! I have a hard time coming up with actors for most of the roles except for Rachel. I think Mandy Bruno would be perfect!!! She plays Detective Marina Cooper on Guiding Light. Red hair, freckles, attitude...yup, perfect!!

Shoot I was thinking of Robin Williams as Jenks! He could pull it off with a little make up...or not.
The first red head to pop into my mind was Jayma Mayes. (http://eur.i1.yimg.com/eur.yimg.com/xp/premiere_ph
She usually plays comedic roles like in Epic Movie, but she is capable of much more. If you can do comedy well then you can do anything.
James Marsters (http://www.geocities.com/hiyakanowa/i/s/s42.jpg) as Kisten has been suggested. He'd be great. I'm not sure if he wants to be a vampire again though.
For Ivy, I chose Summer Glau from Fire Fly/Serenity/The 4400/The Unit. That would be her on the movie poster with the sharp pointy things.
Lastly there's Rex.. http://www.ntua.gr/dep/old/Iraq-War/Kitten+Gun.jpg
I'd like to post these as images instead of links but I don't know how here.

I think you have made some excellent picks! I love your little redhead! She could be a really good Rachel... funny, and with a little work, tough and kick-ass like Rachel! I also like your pick for Kisten, but I'll be honest I really see him more as a Patrick Wilson (The Phantom of the Opera). Very sophisticated with his long hair, with a touch of pretty mixed in with some sexy.
For Trent maybe Gerard Butler(300)He has a hint of danger and sexy mixed together just like Trent does.
As for Jenks, I'd say that Robin Williams is a bit old for someone who has the looks of a young 18 year old wouldn't you? He would have to be funny though, maybe a comedian like Dane Cook or Daniel Tosh or someone...I'd have to think longer on that one!
More to come as I continue to stew on the remaining characters...

You didn't recognize that red head? Think Burnt Toast KDner, Midland Texas and Sylar. She was Charlie the waitress. I really didn't want her to get Sylarized.
Robin Williams was my example of how bad I am at casting. I can't think of any funny young actors right off the bat.
Ivy was easy for me. Summer would be perfect for her except she is a a little on the short side. That's no biggie though, if they can make a 5 foot man into a dwarf, they can add an extra 11 or 12 inches to an actress.
Who ever plays Ivy has to have 3 things. Grace, believable fighting skills and a wide range of emotion. Summer can do all this and more. She was a dancer before she started acting, her dancing skills transfer to choreographed fight scenes very well, and she can change emotions faster than you can say VVkiss kissVV.
Kate Beckensale would be a good second choice and more expensive. She has the height. looks and skills for the job. She has also played a vampire and a vampire hunter. A vampire bounty hunter should be a snap!

I also thought about Kate Beckinsale and kind of liked the idea. I am not too familliar with Summer though. I agree that those three main things would have to be there for Ivy's character.
Who do you think David could be played by? Or Ceri? Nick?

Hugh Jackman as Nick I guess. ( http://users.static.freeblog.hu/z/a/b/zabszalma/fi
