My Movie Wish

This hour's challenge is from Lydia:

Think of your favorite book – has it been made into a movie? If not (and maybe you’ll need to go to your 2nd favorite book and so on), tell me if you’d like to see it made into a movie and pick one character from the book and give me information on which actor you’d love to see cast in the part. Make your post as fun as possible, tell me why you think the movie would be amazing and why the actor/actress you chose would be perfect in the part!

This one is so easy for me! I have been wondering ever since I read

Ballad of the Whiskey Robber: A True Story of Bank Heists, Ice Hockey, Transylvanian Pelt Smuggling, Moonlighting Detectives, and Broken Hearts

How is this not a movie?!?!?

It reads like a great adventure. Where else do you have a Zamboni driver becoming a star hockey player becoming a bank robber? Attila is a crazy, lovable drunk that you just can't help but hope will get away with his crimes.

I can see Colin Farrell or Gerard Butler in this role.

Wow -- you're going strong. I'm envious (will be retiring to bed with my book soon).
