Casca is the Roman soldier cursed by Christ in AD 32. He can't die. He goes through the centuries traveling all over the world as a mercenary.
This is a series of books now numbering over 50. It would make a great TV series where every season could cover one book. History Channel or SciFi Channel would work. Might be good for CW or TNT.
It would take a young and upcoming actor to start w current young actor comes comes to mind. It would actually be best to have an unknown. Supporting cast would change from season to season as they'd be in different times and locations.
I don't think they'd make good movies over the long term. Think Conan movies. One or two and then they stop. A series would be better.
Wow, there are a lot of books in that series! I wonder how many seasons of a TV show they could be turned into? Probably quite a few. :)
Great idea for a series, and starting with an unknown who grows with the role.
It would depend on the numbers, Lydia. SciFi shows seem to hold up well, maybe something like this could too.
Yes Shari, you've got it right.
I need to check that series out... sounds good!
When teaching middle school they were the only books I could get the boys to read. They're short, except for the first one. Easy to read with high retention.
I've never heard of this but it sounds truly intriguing!
Unfortunately, I'm not able to participate right now, as hackers have hit my site and my host and I are working on getting things fixed, but for now I'm locked out.
I had problems last weekend with blogger too, it's getting crazy on the net.
That does sound like a good idea for a series - and a good starting point for an unknown.
We are agreed.
Sounds good to me.
Thanks for coming by, Megan.
