Olivia Wilde as Maddie and Mack
I always said I thought if a movie would be cast, Jennifer Lawrence would be in the starring role. The more I thought about it, the more wrong that statement felt.
Mack and Maddie are beautiful, brilliant, and strong-willed. I'm not saying Jennifer isn't or couldn't play that role, but she's really young. The more I thought about who they are, the more I thought about Amanda Tapping. I just loved Samantha Carter from Stargate. When Sam took over as Commander on Atlantis, I was thrilled. The more I thought about it, the more sense it made. She could easily play that fine line, the other side of the coin. Maddie is sweet and gentle, wearing her heart on her sleeve. Mack is more guarded and forceful. Both are borderline genius. Plus they can hang with the guys.
But Amanda may have an issue similar to Jennifer Lawrence. I doubt she could be believable as the 30-year-old character. I was researching who might be a good fit for Elizabeth when I came across Olivia Wilde. I think it would work.
Alex Pettyfyer as John Brooks
John is the resident bad boy of the ISC, at least until he saw Maddie. Many thought he was mentally unstable. They weren't far off. He has loads of charm and skills well-suited for the ISC.
Not bad. Not bad at all.
Brandon "Bug" Hall as Jackson Gray
Jackson is second-in-command and Mack's husband. He has an Air Force background which you'll see when his short story comes out later this year.
Stephen Amell as Seth and Logan Brooks
Michael Caine as Charlie Westlake
Sienna Miller as Elizabeth Levette
How does my cast match up with you? Did I miss the mark or overlook someone? Sound off in the comments! Maybe I'll get to work on a screen play. Who knows? I need another project to undertake.
