Venators Promises Forged Devri Walls DreamCast


Venators: Promises Forged Dreamcast – Let the Hysterionics Ensue…

Hi guys!!  Devri Walls here, author of the Venators series and I’m about to attempt a post about my dream cast. Ahem, attempt… yes, that was the correct vocabulary choice. But thank you for checking. In case you need a visual as to my current state I’m rolling on my floor, flopping my arms and wailing, “why, why, whyyyyyyyy!?” It’s all very dramatic. Send chocolate.

Me? Don’t Blame Me…

Who would be in my dream cast is something I get asked a lot. And one that I’ve avoided completely for two years. Impressive, no? (Also… see how much I’ve grown to love you Susan? LOOK AT WHAT I DO FOR YOU!)

I LOVE YOU TOO!

I suppose this does beg the question, why am I working so hard to avoid this?

 

The thought of making Venators into a TV Series makes me giddy with excitement. It’s something I would love to see happen. A dream that even played a part in how I designed the lay out of the series. But these characters… you guys, I made them up! They are full and complete people in my head with certain facial features and body types and mannerisms. It’s like pulling up a list of Hollywood’s A-listers and saying, which one looks just like your mom?

Uhhhh, none of them.

speechless

 

All right, all right, you get it. Without further adieu, here is my first attempt at a Venators cast—


Give Ms. Walls Some Space, Now…

In the role of Grey Malteer I would love to see…

Steven R Mcqueen. This is probably the one I’m most comfortable with on this whole list. I think Steven could get Grey pretty darn close to what I see in my mind.

Best known for his work on The Vampire Diaries and Chicago Fire, this is Mr. Mcqueen’s first nomination and winSteven McqueenSide Note- If Devri’s mom looks like this? She’s a bad friend and I need to move.


In the role of Rune Jenkins I would love to see…

I get a lot of readers who would like to see Kat Mcnamara. But, there’s something about her I’m not loving for Rune. Personally I’m leaning toward Marie Avgeropoulos.

Best known for her work on The 100, this is Ms. Avgeropoulos’ first nomination and win…

Marie Avgeropoulos


In the role of Tate the Venshii I would love to see…

Terry Crews really has the physical look I’m looking for, he just doesn’t have the right demeanor. I’m tilting toward Winston Duke.

Best known for his work in Black Panther, Infinity War and Endgame, this is his first nomination and win…

Winston Duke


Beltran of the Mage’s Circle

SO HARD, so much pressure. clutches head

I'm brokeThe

Apparently, we broke Devri.


<clears throat> … In the role of Beltran of the Mage’s Circle I would love to see…

I didn’t think I’d ever find a Beltran but then I watched Tom Riley on Da Vinci’s Demons. I am telling you, the man oozes Beltran. Unfortunately Tom will have aged out when this finally gets into production, but seeing him portray Davinci was just so… I got chills.

Best known for his work on Da Vinci’s Demons, this is Mr. Riley’s first nomination and win…

In the role of Verida of House Dracula I would love to see…

 I think Cara Delevingne would be awesome. I also toyed with Mila Kunis as a blonde.

Best known for her work in Suicide Squad as Dr. Moon/Enchantress, this is her first nomination and win…

Cara Delevingne


In the role of Zio I would love to see…

Charlize Theron…

Best known for all of the things… Ms. Theron has been nominated and won all the things. However, she states this is her most fulfilling work to date

     Introducing Omri, ruler of the Elven Empire…

My editor found the most perfect model ever on the face of planet earth. And now I will never be able to see anyone else. Sigh. Ladies and Gentlemen, please add some elven ears and a long white wig.


Bonus Round!

I was honored to choose one actor! And so for Rune’s brother, Ryker Jenkins…

I chose Mr. David Castañeda because he has the looks, demeanor and chops to play Ryker’s chip on the shoulder, insecure, but you want to love him and hope he just gets past that damn dark side demons that haunt him kind of character…

Best known for his work playing #2 (Diego) on the Umbrella Academy, this is Mr. Castañeda first nomination and win… 

…And let’s face it- this cast has become quite the crew of eye candy!


Closing Note From Venators Author Devri Walls

As for the rest of the characters I would love to hear who you, my readers, would like! No seriously, I love hearing who you all want to see. Thank you so much for stopping by today and I truly hope you enjoy the series and the bonus introduction to Omri, ruler of the Elven Empire….
