Here Snow shares some ideas for casting an adaptation of What Came First:
The premise:Learn more about the book and author at Carol Snow's website.
A single mom, longing to give her son a sibling, sets out to find the sperm donor she used nine years earlier, only to turn the lives of two other women upside down.
Laura (an attractive, self-contained, slightly chilly lawyer and single mom): Téa Leoni
Ian (Laura’s eight-year-old son): Any random blonde kid from the Disney Channel stable; twins preferred
Vanessa (twenty-nine-year-old dental receptionist, eager to start a family with her commitment-phobic boyfriend): America Ferrera looking like she really does, not like Ugly Betty
Eric (Vanessa’s boyfriend; thirty-two-year-old slacker and failed musician): Eric Hutchinson, a successful musician whom I pictured while writing the book
Wendy (fortyish, frazzled, frumpy, overweight mother of wild five-year-old twins; conceived via same sperm donor as Laura): We’d have to go with an unknown actress; no one fitting that description has ever found any screen success!
