...and my, how it's even changed the very way we think.
I recently took note of an actor (Chris Evans) in a movie and thought to myself... Wow, this guy would be perfect for the role of Zihn in a movie adaptation of my novel Midnight Chaser. (Should such an occasion ever arise.)
There's just one thing. They'd need to use CGI to make him shorter/smaller. Isn't it wacky? That such a notion would occur to me... and delightfully worse still, that it is in fact possible!
Also, it's the little things... Even though I had seen him in a film or two, I hadn't pegged him as my character before.... not until he sported facial hair and had a certain flair to his attitude.
So a word to the wise in terms of casting... sometimes perfection needs a little tweaking.
And to be honest, no matter who winds up playing him one day, CGI work would have to be applied to match a particular facial feature or two anyway.
For the record, that's my personal "photo" of Zihn. See here for more.
Yet another unforeseen "whoa" of the 21st Century.
