Perception Blog Tour: Fantasy Casting – Justin and Gabriel

Posted by Irish in Blog Tour17 Comments

Hello everyone and welcome to the Blog Tour for Perception. The blog tour is hosted by Books Complete Me.

As you may have heard Clarity by Kim Harrington was optioned for television back in November 2011…and I for one would LOVE to see this happen…and with optioning comes the thought of who would play your favorite characters if a tv show was made. Which leads to my leg of the Perception Blog Tour….Fantasy Casting for Justin and Gabriel. If you’ve read Clarity then you know that those are the two perfectly flawed boys that Clare must chose between.  

Now…I am the first to admit that I *suck* at putting a celebrity face to a character in a book. My brain doesn’t usually picture real people when I read unless I’ve seen the movie/show that the book was based on first. So I was STUMPED! Luckily we live in a world with Twitter and the lovely people there were very helpful in providing me with many names of potential actors to play Justin and Gabriel. But boy…let me tell you…it was ROUGH looking at pictures of those hot boys to make this post. The suffering I must go through for my readers. I hope you appreciate it! lol

Now on to the casting!




So what say you internet? Who made the better choice, Kim or me (with assistance from Twitter)? Or do you think you have a better idea of who should play these two characters? Leave a comment below and let me know. Comments also enter you into a contest to win 1 of 3 copies of Perception – one of which will be signed!
 Perception by Kim Harrington  (Point, 01 March 2012) 
When you can see things others can’t, what do you do when someone’s watching you?

Everybody knows about Clarity “Clare” Fern. She’s the psychic girl in school, the one who can place her hands on something and see hidden visions from the past.

Only Clare would rather not be a celebrity. She prefers hanging back, observing. Her gift is not a game to her.

But then someone starts playing with her head . . . and heart. Messages and gifts from a secret admirer crop up everywhere Clare turns. Could they be from Gabriel, the gorgeous boy who gets Clare’s pulse racing? Or from Justin, Clare’s hopeful ex-boyfriend who’d do anything to win her back?

One thing is certain. Clare needs to solve this mystery, and soon. Because the messages are becoming sinister, and a girl in town has suddenly disappeared.

    I can so see Ethan Peck as Gabriel. Also, I was thinking about this more, lol, and I think Jeremy from Vampire Diaries would make an excellent Gabriel! (You can tell I’m not Justin’s biggest fan, lol since I really have no ideas for him.)

  2. Christina Fiorelli

    Both of you cast totally hot guys, but I have to say I’m kinda for Benjamin and Ethan.

    Benjamin is exactly like I imagine Justin:) And now I finally have a clear picture of Gabriel:))

    Great post – really fun:)

    Chris in the first match up, Ethan in the second in the terms of adorableness alone. I’d have to read the book to see if they’re who my brain would come up with after reading descriptions of said boys. —HoltAshleyN

    OK, so i can’t really comment on either choice, because I have not read CLARITY yet (I hang my head in shame), however, based on looks alone, I’d have to go with Gail’s pick for Justin and Kim’s for Gabriel. Shallow, I know, just going on looks alone, but it’s all I’ve got right now. lol

  5. Tee

    Oh man these are good choices but I have to say Chris Zylka as Justin because I love the whole bad boy vibe he has going on. I also love love love Blair Redford as Gabriel. He has the whole bad boy vibe going on and he also has a soft spot which is what draws Clarity to him.

    Aaahh! Gorgeous choices. Love Benjamin. He’s so sexy. I’d have a hard time picking which guy! So excited to read Perception. Clarity rocked my world.
