If you got to cast The Vampire Lestat...?

or any other of the Vamp Chron books, which people would u choose to play which characters? They don't have to look like that now (or be alive, for that matter) or even be able to act xD

I'd choose:

Lestat - Martin Rolinski

Louis - I'd stick with Brad Pitt

Nicolas - Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Marius - Julian Sands

Armand - Taylor Hanson

Santino - Tuomas Holopainen

Daniel - River Phoenix

Also, I'd stick with Aaliyah as Akasha and Kirsten Dunst as Claudia.

    You are now officially my favorite person for asking this question. :) I agree with all of your suggestions, especially Marius and Armand (Bjorn Andresen is perfect for the role, it seems.) So is Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Nicolas-- he looks a lot like the tortured violinist we all know and love. Personally, I liked Tom Cruise as Lestat, though. He had a strange sort of accent in the movie, and for me, it fit all of Anne Rice's descriptions.

    Maybe Jason Isaacs could play Marius? http://l.yimg.com/img.movies.yahoo.com/ymv/us/img/... However, there's something not quite right about his facial structure. I always imagined Marius more delicate.

    Also, I almost suggested Joaquin Phoenix for perhaps Louis--but I don't think so anymore.

    Sorry I couldn't provide too many; don't know too many actors. :) But brilliant question!
