The Partition of Africa – Dreamcast!


First thing’s first – I highly doubt The Partition of Africa will be made into a movie any time soon, if ever, so don’t think I’m delusional! But it’s fun to think about which actors you’d like to play which characters, isn’t it? I love to do that with books I enjoy reading, so I thought I’d give it a try with my own this time, and it did not disappoint.

Hattie Greene


While she may be a little too old to pass for nineteen or twenty, Emma Roberts has a sweet face and demeanor. There’s also something wholesome and pure about her which I think would be necessary for anyone portraying Hattie.

Claire James


If I had a time machine at my disposal, I would say without a doubt that Amy Adams would play Claire in this fantasy of mine, but she’s just a little too old. A more than adequate pick is Molly Quinn.

Cameron Wolcott


Colin Hanks fits the vision of Cameron I had perfectly, minus the glasses. The fact that his dad is Tom Hanks (my all-time favorite actor) may have helped his case, too.

Samson Campbell



This one’s tough! While Samson’s physical character was based heavily on Gerard Butler, I can also see Robert Downey Jr. doing a great job playing the caddish professor.

Sidney Campbell

I can’t think of anyone better to play Sidney than Cameron Diaz!

Piper McClure


I like the idea of Jennifer Lawrence for Piper. She’s a very talented actress who could pull off just about any role!

Trevor Pennington

Michael Cera

I like Michael Cera for Trevor. I loved his work in Juno, and I think he’s great at being awkward – and let’s face it, Trevor is good for awkward.

Tobias Reue


Stanley Tucci is far from meek, mild, or cowardly, but he’s a skilled actor who has played far stranger parts. I think he’d be a great Toby!
