HOTD Casting Call: Felicia

Here is who I would have play Felicia in a TV show/movie adaptation of the Hunters of the Dark series...

Runners Up to play Felicia
Zoe Saldana (Star Trek, Avatar)
Zoe Kravitz (X-Men: First Class, Divergent)
My Choice for Felicia
Ashley Madekwe (Revenge, Secret Diary of a Call Girl)

A little older than the other hunters, Felicia Wales is the first hunter that Shanna actually encounters in the series, and she makes a big impression on her as a kick-ass chick.  Felicia is a reliable scout and leader, although her psychic powers can make her seem a little strange at times.  A versatile actress who can portray a strong woman is necessary, which all three here are certainly qualified to do.  In the end, however, Ashley Madekwe is less recognizable, and I think she's a terrific actress, so I would love to give her the role.  Plus, I love her British accent.

HOTD Casting Call: Noel

Here is who I would have play sexy vampire Noel in the movie/TV series based on Hunters of the Dark...

Runners Up to play Noel
Darren Criss (Glee, Girl Most Likely)

Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf, Doc)
My Choice for Noel

Joshua Bowman (Revenge)
Jordan's vampire flame gets all of the hot scenes, so a guy with smoldering good looks is going to have to play him.  Noel is gay, and again, I hate to type cast, so I would probably have to pass on Darren Criss in favor of the other two men (even though that photo makes it really hard to) because he is best known for his gay character on Glee.  And since Tyler Posey plays a supernatural creature on Teen Wolf already, I think I would want to give Joshua Bowman a shot, since I was utterly impressed with his performance on Revenge.  And it doesn't hurt that he's beyond delicious.  Especially shirtless.

HOTD Casting Call: Valor

Valor is the enigmatic woman who gathered the hunters together and sends them on their missions.  Here's who I would have play her in a movie/TV show...

Runners Up to play Valor

Tricia Helfer (Battlestar: Galactica, Burn Notice)
Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids, X-Men: First Class)
My Choice for Valor
Rebecca Hall (The Awakening, Iron Man 3)
Valor is very much in control and doesn't betray her emotions often.  When she does, it needs to be subtle.  She is very stony and strong, something all three of the women here can play.  I would love for any one of them to play Valor, but I think Rebecca Hall and Tricia Helfer just feel more like Valor, and between the two of them, I was blown away by Rebecca Hall's performance of a messed-up, cold woman in The Awakening, so very much like Valor, and she has this intensity that's magnetic, so I would have to go with her.
