Danielle Girard's "Expose"

Danielle Girard is the author of Chasing Darkness, The Rookie Club series, and Exhume and Excise, featuring San Francisco medical examiner Dr. Annabelle Schwartzman. Girard’s books have won the Barry Award and the RT Reviewers’ Choice Award, and two of her titles have been optioned for movies.

A graduate of Cornell University, Girard received her MFA at Queens University in Charlotte, North Carolina. She, her husband, and their two children split their time between San Francisco and the Northern Rockies.

Here Girard dreamcasts an adaptation of her new novel, Expose:
I don’t know any writer who hasn’t toyed with the “perfect cast” for his or her novel. I’m certainly among the masses.

And some days when the words don’t come, I’m on the IMDb website for much much longer than I should be, going back and forth between Idris Elba and Michael B Jordan to play Inspector Hal Harris. Medical Examiner Annabelle Schwartzman is a little tougher as most actresses are simply gorgeous and I think of Anna as being an attractive woman but not so gorgeous. That said, I think an actress who can shift her look—Charlize Theron and Jennifer Lawrence come to mind—could play Schwartzman perfectly.

So, there you have it. Idris Elba and Charlize Theron.

Now, you decide! Who do you think should play Anna and Hal?
