On Friday, we heard that Stephen King’s Under the Dome had been optioned by DreamWorks TV as an “event series.” I think the new novel is extremely well-suited to a miniseries format and can’t wait to see how it turns out (if you haven’t seen my review of Under the Dome, it’s here).
Of course, this news can only mean one thing—coming up with casting ideas! I could see Elizabeth Mitchell of “Lost” doing a good job as Julia.She’s about the right age and could play the role of a relentless reporter without batting an eye.
Actor Cillian Murphy has a talent for being creepy without becoming a caricature (Red Eye, anyone?), so he’d be a great Junior. But at 33, is he too old for the role?
As for Big Jim and Barbie—I’m stumped! And what about the endearing Joe McClatchy and his teen cohorts? Other Under the Dome readers, share your ideas in the comments.
