(An IM conversation with The Hubster as we try to decide which actor would best portray Shannon Cooper, Brig Cooper’s father. You know, in case Hollywood comes calling. And desperately needs me to do the casting for the film adaptations of my books.
You know, in La-La-Fantasy-Land.
hows your morning going?
how are you?
did a little graphic work, now moving on to blog posts for my release.
you’re good with movie stars…
i need someone to ‘play’ shannon cooper.
oh no, i chased you away! come back! come back!
someone just called
funny, I just read that as ‘Sheldon Cooper’, not Shannon
ok, so Shannon is Brig’s dad, right?
tall, dark hair, blue eyes.
really good guy.
kindof a simple soul.
I picture Shannon being a guy like the dude from Revolution/Twilight
the guy who can fight real good with a sword on Revolution
*groan* geeze, your such a Twi-hard. I don’t want to just copy twilight, you know?
he’s sort of perfect, though.
oh, right, didn’t think of that. what’s a twi-hard? is it dirty? can we try it tonight?
*eye-roll* nevermind. do you have a second best?
what? no! tell me you’re not serious.
your pause is making me nervous
how about Viggo Mortenson!
huh? he’s on the list to be Dominic!! No!
he can pull of humble, though.
well now I’m flummoxed. *squinches nose*
ViggoM is too cool of a guy to be an evil Dominic
um, do you REMEMBER how he was in a history of violence?
…don’t remember ViggoM in history of violence, remember him as Aragorn!
Um, T…Shannon’s human. And not a warrior king.
no, dummy, like this:
oh, okay, I got it…
The guy who plays Boromir’s brother on LOTR and is in 300
He would be a great Shannon
gonna go find a pic…
he’s so fair-haired…could he pull it off?
Yes! just dye his hair dark.
maybe some facial hair
is he too ‘comedic’ for this role?
Here’s david wenham with dark hair and facial hair
my slutty inner goddess really likes that look on him.
just say it. He’s a hottie
but Nathan makes me happy. and Shannon’s not a morose guy…
I agree. Fillion wouldn’t be a bad choice at all
I just don’t know how well he can pull off bad ass if needed. you know, in the fourth book.
i’m going to put my faith in his acting ability and say he can.
he’ll do it for me. i know he will.
hey, gotta go
sorry to bug you with such stupid stuff at work.
no problem. have your gryffindor t-shirt on when i get home. *grin*
So there it is, readers! My vote for Actor Most Likely To Portray Shannon Cooper is Nathan Fillion. Do you agree? Ja? No? Totally want to hear your thoughts. And if you’d like to pin your thoughts to the Shrilugh – As You See It Pinterest board, drop me an email, and I’ll send you an invite!

The Hubster will be thrilled that he’s not alone in the Viggo corner! He really is fabulous, though, isn’t he? So much so that we MAY have given our second son his name…
Please forgive. I did read the whole thing, but I couldn’t stop laughing at Twi-hard comment. Just overruled all else lol!!
