Jo Perry's "Dead Is Beautiful"

Jo Perry earned a Ph.D. in English, taught college literature and writing, produced and wrote episodic television, and has published articles, book reviews, and poetry.

She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, novelist Thomas Perry.

They have two adult children. Their three cats and two dogs are rescues.

Here Perry dreamcasts an adaptation of her new novel, Dead is Beautiful:
In case your readers don't know, my protagonists are a murdered man and a dead dog he encounters in the afterlife.

That said, being alive should not disqualify any human (or canine actors) from the parts. I have always thought that Jonah Hill before he lost weight would have made a perfect Charles, but now that he's slim, I nominate Seth Rogen.

Dead Is Beautiful also features Charles's living sibling whom he refers to as his "shit brother." Joaquin Phoenix could play shit brother very well.

I have no dog actors in mind for Rose.
