BROKEN Blog Tour: C.J. Lyons’ Fantasy Cast

Posted 11/03/2013 by alicemarvels in Author Guest Post

Today we’re excited to have C.J. Lyons stopping on her blog tour for Broken. We asked her to come up with a fantasy cast for the book, and she came up with an amazing group of actors to bring her main characters to life.

Fantasy Cast for BROKEN by CJ Lyons

Wow, that’s a great question! It’s so much easier to answer for my adult thrillers (we’ve had tons of producers and networks looking at them, but haven’t found the right partners yet) because I don’t have to worry about the age of the actors as much.

I think for BROKEN, I’d use the best of today’s teen actors combined with some stellar adult stars:


Scarlet’s Stepmom: Drew Barrymore


Scarlet’s Dad: Bradley Cooper


Jordan: Liam Hemsworth


Nessa: Nicole Lovince


Celina: Lucy Hale


Tony: Nolan Gerard Funk


Scarlet: Lily Collins



That is an amazing fantasy cast, thanks so much for sharing!


About Broken:



The only thing fifteen-year-old Scarlet Killian has ever wanted is a chance at a normal life. Diagnosed with a rare and untreatable heart condition, she has never taken the school bus. Or giggled with friends during lunch. Or spied on a crush out of the corner of her eye. So when her parents offer her three days to prove she can survive high school, Scarlet knows her time is now… or never. Scarlet can feel her heart beating out of control with every slammed locker and every sideways glance in the hallway. But this high school is far from normal. And finding out the truth might just kill Scarlet before her heart does.

In stores November 5th!

    Sorry, I kind of got lost right up there with Bradley Cooper. Staring is SO unhealthy, but I just can’t help myself. :D
    I love the sound of this book. It seems to be a contemporary, based on the description alone, but that last part could mean that there are some paranormal elements so I’m especially curious. At least it’s different from everythig that comes my way these days.
    Thanks so much for sharing.


    That would be quite the dream cast for sure!!


    I would totally watch a movie with that cast


    It’s difficult to think of Drew Barrymore as a mom…I still picture her as that little kid in E.T. (yes, I’m old). But I can totally get behind any cast that has Bradley Cooper in it. He’s just so adorable!


    I’m fully support any and all castings of Liam Hemsworth. And Chris Hemsworth. And really, the entire Hemsworth family, I’m sure they’re all gorgeous. I can’t wait to read this book, I’ve been in love with that cover forever, and now I have this amazing cast to picture in my head as I read so I’m ready to get my hands on it! Thanks so much for sharing:)


    What a cast! I am reading this one now and enjoying it.


    It is always fun to see a fantasy cast


    What fun to do fantasy casts. Would be curious to see how that would work on screen. :)


    I am with Maja, still drooling over Bradley Cooper! I am curious about this one. I want to see what a Pediatric Doctor can do! Thanks for sharing!


    Holy smokes that is a hot looking cast! Bradley Cooper is yummy!


    Well, that is quite the attractive dream cast! I haven’t heard of this book before, but I’ll definitely be looking more into it.
    Thanks for sharing. Lauren!


    I will see any movie with Drew Barrymore in it so sign me up! I have been seeing the cover for this one around a lot lately and I love it! So pretty!


    That is a great cast! And I’ll watch most anything with Drew Barrymore in it!


    Well I was sold after seeing Liam Hemsworth, oh yes! I’d enjoy this. I haven’t heard of this book but it sounds really interesting. Great post :)


    Lily Collins – wonderful! :)
