|Neil Patrick Harris: |
Is he Desi Collings?
No word on who they're playing but I have a couple of guesses. Neil Patrick Harris could be Tanner Bolt, the spray-tanned celeb lawyer, OR my guess; Desi Collings, Amy's boyfriend from her boarding school days who still sends her 'thick, padded envelopes that Amy tossed unopened after showing them to' Nick. Harris is a gifted comedian(How I Met Your Mother) and the BEST Tony award show host EVER but he hasn't had much of a chance to flex his dramatic muscles lately; I think he's perfect for the good-looking wealthy WASP and former boyfriend.
'In Amy's stories he was a pale Romantic figure, and their courtship had been of the boarding-school variety; chilly football games and overheated dances, lilac corsages and rides in a vintage Jaguar'. ... After Amy cut it off with Desi, he still lingered around the Wickshire campus, a ghostly figure in dark blazers' ... 'Amy returned from a dance one February night to find him lying on her bed, naked, on top of the covers, groggy from a very marginal pill overdose. BUT HE STILL PHONED HER.'
|Writer, director, actor Tyler Perry: Detective Gilpin?|
I'm really excited to see the rest of the cast; especially all the women. Besides the great parts of GO, Nick's hard-drinking twin sister, and Detective Boney - who Nick finds 'surprisingly ugly - brazenly, beyond the scope of everyday ugly' and then goes on to say he has an affinity for ugly women because he was raised by a trio of of ugly women who ' were all smart and kind and funny and sturdy, good, good women.' An admission from Nick on page 47 that had me questioning whether a wife killer would feel this way about women.
Plus there's the slew of crazy women on the periphery of the case; Frito-pie pushing Shawna Kelley who's putting the make on Nick, Noelle Hawthorne their neighbor and self-proclaimed best friend of Amy - the woman Nick doesn't even know. Hilary Handy, an Amazing Amy stalker. Desi's mother. A nice lineup of whackos.
In the words of Nick Dunne "Women are fucking crazy."
