Twilight Overload

I finished the third book last night and sent my husband (recent survivor of phase one of a root canal, thanks for the prayers) out to purchase the fourth one at about 9:30. What, quit looking at me like that. He's perfectly fine! I don't feel the least bit guilty about him driving through freezing temperatures with a cold and wet driver's seat (from my earlier coffee dumping session) and looking at no less than five different stores for my coveted book. He didn't find it.

So I'm having some withdrawal symptoms, and I'm feeding my addiction by imagining who really should play Edward Cullen in the movie. I have no problem with Robert Pattinson, but he's Cedric Diggory, dangit! Yes, I am the world's biggest nerd. I'm okay with that. So my mom (who's also a nerd, sorry Mom) and I like to read books and then watch the movies and discover who the real perfect person for the lead role is. We're still working on The DaVinci Code. Tom Hanks. *shudder*

So here are my mind's other Edward Cullens. Tell me what you think.

1. Johnny Depp
I watched Cry-Baby last night and it was a little weird. Though I'm not sure if he could pull off 17 now, the younger Johnny Depp is a perfect match. Just look at those broody eyes...

2. Adam Brody
I don't know anything about this guy, but he does have a perfect face. Something kinda nonchalant and yet he really does care...

3. Tom Welling.
He's already a superhero, and his eyes are just about perfect.

4. Marlon Brando.
Now I'm entering the realms of Fairyland, but look at him! He's perfect! STELLA!!! It rhymes with BELLA!!!!!

Gosh, I'm really losing it.

5. James Dean. The hands down, no doubt about it, most perfect vampire of all time. He wouldn't even need makeup!

I'm really not obsessed. It just looks that way. Darn you, Patti!

Oh you are so on--though I'm not a James Dean fan.

Brando looks the part but his voice always weirds me out.

Hi Sarah - I was so pleased when I saw your comment this morning. Feels like I've been away for years not months. I love your blog background and banner -just lovely! And erm...I'll go for Brando.

I did the same thing when I saw "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest." Having read the book more than once before seeing the movie, I knew damn well that McMurphy didn't look anything like Jack Nicholson. He was a big strapping redheaded guy. Of course, being the egotist that I am, I considered MYSELF perfect for the part.

I'm waiting to read the books. I like to savour something that I know will one day become an obsession. Stretches things out that way.

I finished the first book and am waiting for the rest to be available at the library. They're all on reserve until well into the next decade I think.
I didn't see the movie, but I did see Goblet of Fire, and I didn't really see Pattinson in the role either. I could see James Dean, though.
And oh yeah, I LOVE the new background!
