The Buzz Girls have had done a little calendar switcheroo, and from here on, I (Tina) am your Tuesday Girl.
And the timing is great because I’ve got something I want to talk about today, and something I hope you of the media-saavy persuasion can help me with...
Here’s the sitch: I had a pretty surreal moment recently, sitting across from two industry film producers, having them ask me which teen actors I “saw” for my characters in TOP TEN USES FOR AN UNWORN PROM DRESS.
My mind raced back to how I wrote them:
5’2, with thick, curly blonde hair, spunky, athletic, and way cuter than she realizes.
6’0, dark, wavy hair, lean, quiet, and a to-die-for grin.
Ex-prom date Rascal
5’10, buffed and blond, and while hot, a good part of his attractiveness comes from his swagger.
I was blank for answers because the actors who fit them in my head have gone onto adult roles. For instance, Reese Witherspoon or Kristen Dunst could have played Nicolette, Jesse “Bring It On” Bradford was Jared, and Chris Klein from “American Pie” would have done Rascal justice. So I pretty much just shrugged.
Since then, the producers and I have signed an agreement for them to “shop” the project to studios. (Yea!) They have wonderful ideas for how best to move the Prom Dress gang to the screen, and if all goes as we hope, some day we’ll be casting for real!
So...I’m looking for a “few good guys and girls” who are teens today. I’d love to hear any ideas of whose HOT in the teen market, and who you think might be a good fit for my characters?!?
Thanks in advance!
