Now for what you have to do to win this book. If you anything like me when you read a book you imagination makes up a look for the characters; I find most time I am picturing someone I have seen before. This being said I have the hardest time with Vayl. So here we go send me a picture of what you think Vayl looks like. Most of us have a online picture account so I am assuming that you will just send me a link. Although for bonus points, leave a post on your blog promoting my contest with your picture you can have five extra entries. Now, this is not as hard as it sounds. You can send me a picture of a actor, drawing, picture of a friend whatever. Just have some fun with this. Whom ever you think portrays the best Vayl. You have until 11/26/2009 Thanksgiving to sign up for the contest.

There are two people I think would make a good Vayl.

Patrick Dempsey http://www.babble.com/CS/blogs/famecrawler/2007/11/08-15/patrick-dempsey-is-hot.jpg

and Adrian Grenier http://mrpoplife.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/2008/05/29/planet_green_11_wenn1891182.jpg

I've bben following Jaz since May 09 and read the first five books in a week. And think Jaz is WAY better than Sookie or Anita.

As for Vayl, there's only one person i could ever see playing him, and he's who i've pictured in my head the whole time: Antonio Sabato Jr. http://www.imdb.com/media/rm46503936/nm0004645

and i know you didn't ask for it, but fot Cole: Greg Cipes. http://www.imdb.com/media/rm315988480/nm0996651

to get a hold of me, or ceck out my jaz related blogs, see my facebook or myspace page. -Stacey M. Molina, of Modesto, CA

Caitlin said...

What a great contest! I haven't read the books, so I don't even have a clue. Just wanted to say.. great contest! ;-)

I'm definitely an Old Follower!
Please don't be mad at me :) , but I never really put anyone famous in Vayl's place--I don't like to do that, but a while ago I thought up my "Dream Cast" for the Jaz Parks series.

Unfortunately for some people, my "Vayl" person would be Ville Valo, and some people probably don't know who that is. He doesn't have short hair, which kind of throws off the description, but his face to me, is what I picture.
Here's the link of the best picture: http://fc05.deviantart.com/fs13/f/2007/063/8/a/Ville_Valo__3_by_Yalle.jpg

I would never be able to picture a Jaz that would match the one in the book, but I have found a perfect Cassandra. She's from the Pirates of the Caribbean who plays Calypso:

This is probably the closest person to be Cole that I could picture: http://access.nscpcdn.com/gallery/i/h/h_christensen/HaydenChri_Yasky_2431438_Ma.jpg

AYates said...

Jaz is the hardest for me to pick but I think Hilarie Burton would make a decent Jaz even though she doesn't have red hair.

Robert Buckley for Cole.

Jon Heder for Bergman.

Rochelle Aytes for Cassandra.

Unknown said...

Nope. For Jaz, it's gotta be Luci Romberg. And I have a whole cast picked out. I really think it needs to be made into a TV series or movie.

Bergman: Matt Winston
David: Geoff Stults
Cassandra: Christina Vidal
Vayl: Antonio Sabato Jr.
Cole: Greg Cipes
Pete: Jay Patterson
Albert: Scott Glenn

And i already have the book too, but i know a lot of people who i could give it to. And i also have a history of wearing books out, so it never hurts to have a back-up...

Jennifer Rardin said...

You may be reading my mind, AYates. If Patrick Dempsey could pull off a slight Romanian accent, he'd be dern near perfect.

Wow, Stacey, so cool of you to say!!

Then these pictures should give you something of a clue, Caitlin. Vayl was born in Romania in 1751 and became a vampire about 38 years later. Short, dark, curly hair. Classically handsome, broad shoulders, slim hips, with eyes that change colors with his moods. In other words, perfect!

Yes, Melanie, your Cassandra is perfect! And I'm with you, I still haven't seen quite the right Jaz. Maybe she'll be a newcomer?

How about this dude for Bergman: Rob Benedict, lately Chuck the Prophet from Supernatural....

Sorry for getting off the subject. My latest pick for Vayl?

for bergman-yes.

hugh jackman-no. i love him, but he is not worthy...

AYates said...

I don't know Stacey. I didn't think so either at first but then I looked at the picture. That picture of Hugh Jackman changed my mind pretty quick.

Unknown said...

okay. i was just watching this weeks bones and saw sweets (John Francis Daley) and thought he might be good for bergman.http://www.imdb.com/media/rm740007168/nm0197855

or even hoddgins in a pinch http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3829963008/nm0862328

and yeah, it is a great pic of hugh. but then again, have you ever seen a bad one of him? ;)

JBug said...

Bones is like the best show ever!!!!! I keep picturing David Boreanaz as Vayl, but he is and will forever be Angel in the minds of most of Americans. John Frances Daly would be an awesome Bergman-- check out his band, Dayplayer, with him singing. (Neverending Summer and Caveman are the best!!)

Kaytee said...

No way everybody. GERARD BUTLER could pull it off as Vayl.


I totally am imagining the sexy Phantom as Vayl; just take off his mask, unslick and curl his hair, and it's perfect. He's got a more manly face. Vayl is manly. Many of you posted men with boyish faces; that's not really how I imagine Vayl.

Unknown said...

yeah. Angel was my first vampire love. and i didn't realize JFD had a band! will difinetely check it out. and don't you just wish bones and seeley would just kiss already!!!

Unknown said...

GERARD BUTLER?!? YES!!! so hot! but every time i see him, i start singing the whole collection of PotO songs; kinda discracts from everything else...

Unknown said...


for bergman. maybe he could even create some real devices...

Paige said...

OMG. I'm like your biggest fan. Really. My mom picked up your first book and I stole it from her. The next day I went and picked up the whole lot of them and finished them in a week. All I have to say is Vayl is too hot to describe in somebody else's picture. I love Jaz to death and wish she were real. From what I know about Cole I'd totally go out with him and I feel bad that Bergman doesn't have anybody so I'd give him a chance too. I hope you keep writing these amazing books, I can't help but read them over and over and over.

AYates said...

I've been trying to find someone I think would make a good Albert, and I think Mark Harmon would be good because he can play the former Marine or army guy really well.


The Discerning One said...

Since reading I have not been able to picture Jaz to perfection; however, this is my Vayl:


...and my Cole


*don't laugh*...


Unknown said...

OMGosh! I love mark hamon!!! but i don't think he could be believable as a jerk. on ncis, he's just such a great guy. and i don't think i would want to see him mean.

And Linus Roache would be okay.

and again Luci Romberg would be good. she's a stunt double and i saw here in an encridible egg commercial. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFEPnmFvs1Y

And then Scott Glenn for albert. http://www.imdb.com/find?s=all&q=Scott+Glenn

and sorry if it seems like i'm hogging space here, but i have no life outside of books and movies, so this is what happens. =)

AYates said...

Stacey, don't forget that everybody who ends up meeting Albert ends up liking him except for Jaz. Mark Harmon wouldn't really have to be mean and he is really likable which is why I picture him as Albert.

Unknown said...

i know this isn't still going, but i was just watching Supernatural Season 4 and Castiel (Misha Collins) would be perfect for Raoul!!! (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0172557/)
