Here at last is the cast list for my current Plot Bunny of Unusual Size, which I talked about here.  :D

Also, two attempts at a working cover that doesn't suck...and this is why I write rather than do anything visual - LOL.



Lou cover                                                                 Lou cover2



Main Characters

Nathan fillion resized     Benjamin Ferrin Macon-Jones (Nathan Fillion) – Ferrin has it all:  comfortable wealth, minor celebrity due to his family name, and Olivia, an intelligent, accomplished, ambitious woman who loves him as much as he loves her...until the day she refuses his marriage proposal, tells him he’s a detriment to her career in his family’s company, and leaves him.  Reeling from the rejection and unable to cope with his cantankerous family's attempts to be supportive, Ferrin decides to take some time away from everyone and everything.  With the help of Pierce, his business manager, he leaves town under the name of Lou Simon Upjohn, and quietly disappears into the Canadian countryside.

Michelle Rodriguez resized Lou Simon Upjohn (Michelle Rodriguez) – Unbeknownst to Ferrin, Lou Simon Upjohn is a real person – and she has problems of her own.  Besides having the stupidest name ever for a woman, Lou’s a recluse and agoraphobic, trapped within the walls of her family home in a small town in Saskatchewan.  To make matters worse, Ike, her only link to the outside world and the love of her life, has married another woman and now they’re moving to Vancouver.  Before he leaves, Ike hires the new guy in town to run her errands and do her yard work.  Lou isn’t happy, but she’s not sure she’s prepared to do anything about it.


Secondary Characters

Katherine-Heigl resized Tessa (Katherine Heigl) – The friendly, free-spirited barista in Lou’s small town home, she’s naturally curious about the stranger in town, and his budding relationship with the local recluse.

Pierce Brosnan resized Pierce Hotz (Pierce Brosnan) – The Macon-Jones’ personal business manager, he’s been working for the family for decades.  While the family drives him crazy, they pay extremely well and, he has to admit, they can provide hours of entertainment.  He has a soft spot for Ferrin, but knows better than to admit it to anyone in the family.

Olivia (Not yet cast) – Ferrin’s ex-lover.  She refuses his marriage proposal because she thinks it’s better for her career aspirations in the Macon-Jones company.  But does she regret her decision once Ferrin strikes out on his own, away from Toronto, the family...and her?

Ryan Reynolds resized Ike (Ryan Reynolds) – Lou’s best friend, protector and former lover.  He’s Lou’s lifeline to the outside world, both practically and emotionally.  He’s the only person Lou has interacted with for the last five years.  When he marries another woman and then leaves town, it sends Lou into a tailspin that takes her places no one could predict.


Tertiary Characters

Juan Martinez (Not yet cast) – The first person Ferrin meets in town, Juan takes an immediate liking to this stranger drifting into town, and offers him a job as a general labourer on his construction crew.

Harrison ford resized Abram Macon-Jones (Harrison Ford) – The oldest member of the Macon-Jones family, he’s the reigning family patriarch and the Chairman of the Board of the Macon-Jones business empire.  Like everyone else in the family, he has a soft spot for his cousin Ferrin, but would rather gouge out his own eyes before he’d admit it.

Helen Mirren resized Gillian Macon-Jones (Helen Mirren) – Ferrin’s stepmother, Gillian knows all too well the Macon-Jones’ tendency to exploit any sign of vulnerability.  She married Ferrin’s father filled with romantic dreams of life with the man she loved, but the reality quickly hardened her into the cool, refined and detached woman she’s become.


Glorified Extras

Ferrin’s Cousins – Cantankerous, sarcastic, cutthroat – but they all have a soft spot for Ferrin, who somehow manages to stay outside of the bickering while staying within the family.  (They're cast, but the numbers keep growing.  O.O  So far:  Kurt Russell, Jeff Bridges, Jason Bateman, Michael J. Fox, Joshua Jackson, Jeremy Renner.  No women yet...but these guys keep trying to take over the story already - LOL).

Irish – Ike’s wife. (Not yet cast and no other purpose yet... :(  )

They're all enormously fun - and they all want to take over the story!!! *bats at them with floofy bats*

Quotes

"All right," said Susan. "I'm not stupid. You're saying humans need...fantasies to make life bearable."

REALLY? AS IF IT WAS SOME KIND OF PINK PILL? NO. HUMANS NEED FANTASY TO BE HUMAN. TO BE THE PLACE WHERE THE FALLING ANGEL MEETS THE RISING APE.

"Tooth fairies? Hogfathers? Little --"

YES. AS PRACTICE. YOU HAVE TO START OUT LEARNING TO BELIEVE THE LITTLE LIES.

"So we can believe the big ones?"

YES. JUSTICE. MERCY. DUTY. THAT SORT OF THING.

-- Susan and Death in Hogfather by Terry Pratchett

---------------------

"And no practical definition of freedom would be complete without the freedom to take the consequences. Indeed, it is the freedom upon which all the others are based."

-- Lord Vetinari in Going Postal by Terry Pratchett

---------------------

They thought the Library was a dangerous place because of all the magical books, which was true enough, but what made it really one of the most dangerous places there could ever be was the simple fact that it was a library.

-- Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett

---------------------

As a wizard, it was something that Ponder had only before encountered in acorns: a tiny soundless voice which said, yes, I am but a small, green, simple object - but I dream about forests.

-- Interesting Times by Terry Pratchett

---------------------

In the 24th century, there will be no hunger. There will be no greed. And every child will know how to read.

-- Gene Roddenberry, as repeated by Jonathan Frakes in the documentary How William Shatner Changed the World

---------------------

We've got two lives, one we're given and the other one we make
And the world won't stop, and actions speak louder
Listen to your heart, and what your heart might say
Everything we got, we got the hard way.

-- Mary Chapin Carpenter, The Hard Way from the album Come On, Come On

---------------------

Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want.

-- John Mayer, Waiting on the World to Change from the album Continuum

---------------------

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says, "I'll try again tomorrow."

-- Mary Anne Radmacher, as seen in Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Tales to Inspire

---------------------

I never loved the soldier
Until there was a war.
Or thought about tomorrow
'til my baby hit the floor.
I only talk to God
When somebody's about to die.
I never cherished freedom
Freedom never cries.

-- Five for Fighting, Freedom Never Cries from the album Two Lights

---------------------

It may sound absurd: but don't be naive
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed: but won't you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream

-- Five for Fighting, Superman (It's Not Easy) from the album American Town

---------------------

Had a dream last night took a time travellin' ride
Back to my childhood where those monsters reside
They snack on innocence and dine on self-esteem
But I like to be in touch with what makes me scream
Vampires, mummies and the Holy Ghost
These are the things that terrify me the most.
No alien, psychopath or MTV host
Scares me like vampires,mummies and the Holy Ghost.

-- Jimmy Buffett, Vampires, Mummies and the Holy Ghost from the album Fruitcakes

---------------------

"I want to believe that... the dead are not lost to us. That they speak to us... as part of something greater than us - greater than any alien force. And if you and I are powerless now, I want to believe that if we listen, to what's speaking, it can give us the power to save ourselves."

-- Fox Mulder, The X-Files from the episode The Truth, pt. 2
