Who's in your dream cast?

Community Casting

How it works:

1. Reply to the character's comment with your ideal casting choice. (If there's no comment yet, go ahead and make one.)

2. Or ideal choices, but please keep it to one choice a reply.

3. Include contextual information if you'd like, include a description of the character if you'd like to remind everyone. The more you can share the better; but if you want your choice to speak for itself, that's fine too.

4. No holds barred: your choice doesn't have to be an actor, doesn't have to be the right age right now, doesn't have to be living. Go chromatic if you'd like, play with gender if you'd like, if you want to cast a character at a different age, go for it.

5. You must include an alt attribute and/or a description following your images/links. Want some help? Read here. eta: If you forget, you'll get one reminder and a chance to repost. After a couple days, any

6. Keep your image sizes reasonable, please. That's to your own discretion, of course, but remember that people are viewing this on all sizes of devices. You don't want to make them scroll. If a mod feels your image size is excessive, we'll let you know and give you a chance to repost. No more than 10 images a comment.

7. Casting is srs business. Be respectful when you comment on someone's choice, even if you don't agree; and, be respectful if someone doesn't agree with you.

8. All other community rules are in effect.

Everyone with a comment so far as I add them! (hopefully alphabetically, by last name, or single name or title if that's all we know)

Sandra Oh on a picket line, with her hair everywhere, wearing shades, giving the camera a WTF face

Sandra Oh, Canadian actress extraordinaire, best known in the US for being scary and uncompromising on Grey's Anatomy. If her GA character got in a fight with Karrin Murphy, I honestly don't know who would win.

I like it, except that she's too tall! Maybe cross her with Bailey (spelling? don't know the actress name, sorry)?

I'm not attached to the idea of Murphy as blonde (or, you know, white), but I AM attached to the idea of this small women (in height) that kicks serious ass!

Tiny fierce loyal blonde well-practiced in the art of exasperation, anyone?

Murphy is probably the one character from DF that I have an absolutely crystal-clear headcanon casting for, because Sarah Jones is effing perfect.

Murphy 1

IMAGE: A woman with blue-grey eyes, a heart-shaped face, a short bob of straight blonde hair, and a cute nose looks coolly at the camera, face turned three-quarters profile. She's wearing a brown leather jacket with a black v-neck button-down showing underneath, and she's leaning back slightly against a stone doorframe. Methinks Murphy knows you're up to shenanigans, Dresden.

Murphy 2

IMAGE: A shot from the shoulders up, the same woman from above is in the midst of berating someone off-screen. This chivalry bullshit is getting old, Dresden. I can take care of myself.

Murphy 3

IMAGE: The same woman in her brown leather jacket again, troubled but laser-focused, staring hard at something to the side in what appears to be a hospital. This is her city and her cops getting hurt in the supernatural crossfire; Murphy won't stand for it.

Murphy 4

IMAGE: A small, icon-sized shot of the same woman wearing a black collared shirt in front of an office window with blinds, looking up with what could be a smile or a smirk, with her hair tucked behind her ear. I thought there ought to be one in here with her smiling. :)a

Murphy 5

IMAGE: Hair slicked down by rain, jacket soaked, but with steely determination sharpening her eyes, the same woman grips a black pistol with two steady hands and points the barrel almost straight at the camera. Sergeant Murphy in action, and she means business.

YES THIS. My god she is so perfect for Murphy.

Hey I know I'm years late but on the off-chance anyone still comes here, I've had a very clear casting in mind for Karrin Murphy since I picked up the first book.
