|Thandie Newton as Dominique|
|Benicio del Toro in the role of Lerance|
Well, almost three years later, and after publishing my first novel, I thought it was time to finally cross over to being bodacious.
The following photos are of the very same people whom once rented space across my line of vision when I was writing The Delilah Case. Since I saw them everyday for years in my mind and on the page, I thought it fitting I should finally show the world my "celeb wish photos". I hung out with all of them from the start; everyone, but the sheriff. Regarding Futrell, I occasionally conjured up James Lee Burke's face, but alas, he's a writer and not a performer. It was later, after reading Wendell Pierce's Facebook posts, and listening to an interview with him on NPR about his grocery store project for New Orleans, that I
recalled how much I adored his performances in The Wire, and then saw how perfect he would be for this role. Okay, I had someone else in mind to play Darnell, but the process took longer than anticipated, and the actor got older along with the rest of us. Tyson is utter and true D.
Isn't this cast scrumptious!
