Is not a thing. Let's get that straight right away. But as it's one of those things you speculate about, I'm interested in any thoughts people might have about actors and characters. Feel free to bung your suggestions in the comments, or to be on Facebook or Twitter (@aptshadow) or Goodreads. Then, when I have a few, I'll set out a dream team cast because hell, if you can't dream, what can you do? And feel free to suggest actors who are, you know, dead, or whatever, because there ain't no film so why not. But please do remember that Beetles, for example, are dark-skinned and so forth. No whitewashing . Tune in soon for the casting director's pick.
