I keep trying to post in this thread but when I do I get a message saying that it would have to be moderated. Not sure why, but 3rd time lucky I hope.
I think Anna Torv would be an awesome Jules. Just watch Fringe and you will understand.
I was thinking as well that Jeff Bridges would be great as Marnes. Thoughts?.
I've seen Jewel Staite apart from Firefly, and she does well with non-flighty, too. I'm not familiar with Anna Torv. I've haven't gotten around to watching Fringe yet. Jeff Bridges is a good choice for Marnes. He's a great actor.
I don't know what the deal is with the post moderation, but it's happened now and then to several people.
I think it's an anti-spam setting for n00bs. Once your post count hits a certain number you don't get those. I was still below 5 when I got the warnings.

Marnes - Somebody else suggested Jeff Bridges, yes, I think perhaps he would make a good Marnes.
Holston - Still thinking about this one
Lukas - ????
Solo/Jimmy - ????
Peter Billings - ????
So difficult sometimes to thinks of actors who would fit the bill. Feel free to add your thoughts and ideas.
Can't wait for the movie adaptation, but methinks I could be dissapointed with actors/screenplay.
Well, that explains it. I babble so much it couldn't get a warning in at all.

Location 2369 for Lukas' age and 2377 for Jules' age on Kindle edition.
I was pretty much spot on so it appears. Yay for memory!..
[URL="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0082517/"]John Billingsley for Bernard/[/URL] ... Thats who I saw while reading the book anyway. Not sure if he can act the part however.
The sheriff from The Walking Dead for Holsten... I am not a huge fan of his acting (He looks the part however) but it would be a short part and surely he can pull off depressed/not saying much for a few minutes movie time.
[URL="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0370035/"]John Hawkes/[/URL] as Marnes... He is only 53 or 54 but I think with some gray hair he could pull it. He also has a magnificent mustache.
All I have for now. Oh and first post!
Juliette is 34, Lukas asks her in W3.
