Fantasy Casting THE DARK DIVINE movie: Daniel Kalbi

*** Business First:

1. I'll be speaking and signing at the Bingham Creek Library in West Jordan at 7 pm on the 15th of November. Attendees may get a chance to get their hands on THE DARK DIVINE paperback (with a TLS preview) before anyone else.

2. Speaking of the TDD paperback, it comes out November 23rd (just in time for Christmas gift shopping)!!! The pb includes a the prologue & first chapter of TLS.

3. Mark your calendars: THE LOST SAINT hits bookshelves on December 28th! We'll be celebrating the launch at The King's English Bookshop at 7 pm on December 28th. You are all invited, of course. ***

Yowza, Bridget Moynahan smashed the competition to play Meredith Divine with 61 votes out of 108 (56%). Kelly Preston came in second with 18 votes (16%). Talk about a landslide!






Now on to the event we've all been waiting for. . . casting:

DANIEL KALBI!!!!

Physical description: Age 18. Naturally very blond but sometimes dyes his hair black. Deep, dark brown eyes. Lean build, but tall and well-muscled. Devious smile. Sometimes described as being "wicked hot" but also sometimes he looks like an angel. (A hot angel, of course.)

This one was super hard to narrow down the votes for. Seriously, I'm very protective of my Daniel, plus there were so many hot guys nominated to choose from. This is a very important decision, so I couldn't just show one picture of each actor. And since Daniel needs to have a nice upper-body, it only made since to include a shirtless photo of each nominee for proper inspection.


Thomas Felton (Who knew Draco Malfoy could be so attractive in real life?)


Alex Pettyfer (So, so, so, so hot!)


Chace Crawford (Very cute, but I think he may be too old.)


Mitch Hewer (Can you say "hot angel"? There's a part in TLS where Daniel looks just like the photo of Mitch with his eyes closed.)


William Moseley (was actually nominated for Jude, but I thought he might be better for Daniel. Perhaps a little too fresh-faced?)


Now I give you all the arduous task of picking one of these beautiful boys to play the part of Daniel in our fantasy casting of a TDD movie.

Be sure to vote for your favorite choice up over in the SIDEBAR and LEAVE A COMMENT to get another entry to win 1 of 10 bottles of TLS nail-polish. The poll will be open until 11:59 pm MST on Tuesday, November 9th.

And be sure to keep spreading the word about the $2.99 special on the TDD ebook that runs until November 22nd. Let me know in the comments what you've done to spread the word and I'll enter you to win 1 of an additional 5 bottles of TLS nail-polish. I'll announce those winners when I announce the fantasy casting winners.

Those are some nice looking young men. Glad they're all over 18, so I don't feel like a perv.

Meg said...

I voted for Mr. "Hot Angel" himself, Mitch Hewer. That was the best contest ever! :o)

I can't wait for TLS!

Malbebe said...

All the guys are good looking... but I will always chose Alex Pettyfer. He is an amazing actor.

Adriana said...

Alex is getting a bit too overrated for me. I love Mitch Hewer on Skins so he gets my vote for Daniel.

Kim said...

I voted for Mitch.

Aubrey said...

I really like Mitch! He is CUTE! But I voted for Tom Felton...I think he could act the part really well. It has been fun seeing him grow up on the HP set and I am interested to see him do something else!

Corey said...

I vote Mitch. Is it weird that i'm a guy commenting to get nail-polish... I don't know. I might give to a certain girl.

Jami Gold said...

I voted for Tom. I think he has the edgier look to pull it off.

Andy said...

I picked Mitch Hewer cos he definitely looks like an angel. :D

Culinary Contessa said...

Wow! I never thought of Tom for Daniel, but now I can totally see it!! He gets my vote!! p.s. I've never seen him shirtless... *stares* What? ; )

Enna Isilee said...

Mitch looks too much like a "good boy" to play the Daniel in my mind. Who is good, but doesn't look it.

So I went with Chance, even though I do think he's a little old.

This fantasy casting is fun!

Becky said...

Oh this was difficult. Alex is close, but I voted for Mitch.

BBB said...

Mitch Hewer for me. I don't think I can get over Thomas Felton being such jerk in Harry Potter, so definitely not him.

Chloe said...

I voted for Chace, although I'm pretty split between all the nominees and I'm not sure that any one of them seems quite right to me... Oh well, they're all gorgeous! ;)

Sue said...

Misha Fitt said...

Jessy said...

Voted Mitch!

Laura Brady said...

Love Alex, but his chin is wrong for how I pictured Daniel so I am going to have to go for Mitch.

Maybe I need to go back and look at all the pictures one more time...

Crazy for words said...

I voted for Mitch Hewer. He's likely the closest any of those guys got to the picture in my head. But attractive looking guys all around. Lol.

LeishaMaw said...

pepsivanilla said...

Mitch :)
I'd totally vote for Tom if he hadn't been in HP though. Those pics are hot!

Bree Biesinger Despain said...

This one was super tough for me to narrow down. Nobody looks quite like the Daniel in my head--but these guys are all hot, so that makes up for it. ;)

Anonymous said...

Daniel MUST have black hair, black eyes, and a black stone collar in his neck. That's very important, Grace is talking about this three things everytime.

P.D: Bree I loved your book, I read it thousand time already. My favorite part is the one tha Grace an Daniel are sited in the tree, that's so romantic ♥
