The Cast

     Perhaps with the recent (and excellent) documentary Casting By in mind, someone asked me who I would cast for a movie version of Those That Wake.  With no limits on budget or scheduling (or era) in my imagination, my ideal cast would be:
     As Laura, Shailene Woodley
     As Remak, Michael Fassbender
     As Mike, Paul Giamatti
     And as Mal, a very young Charles Bronson.  I'm sure there's a current actor out there who understands the power of silence, who would serve the part very well, but from the moment of conception, Mal was always a young Charles Bronson in my head.
