And that's because I really haven't given it much thought. As you can see in that spot under the header, I begin with the character Muhsin Muhabi. And the story actually does begin with him. Muhsin is a forty-something Palestinian potter who owns a pottery shop in the Old City Market in modern day Nazareth, Israel. He works with his 14 year old son, Naji. And the only actor who comes to mind to play the part of Muhsin Muhabi is that guy from the TV show, Lost. Naveen Andrews.

Then you have a middle aged Professor Hiram Weiss. When I created him, I had in mind a middle aged Lawrence Olivier. But since he's no longer around, I'm not sure who would work. But that's the image I had in mind. So someone like that.
As for Captain Benny Mathias, well he's got to be someone who conveys a heroic personality. He's a war veteran, and a covert assassin. He heads the Kidon, after all. I haven't been looking for an actor for him, although I'm sure one could be found. I'll keep my eyes open.
What about an actress for Mary Levin? I think most stories should have a beautiful woman, and Mary Levin is just that. Unlike my blond beauties in Killer of Killers, Mary is a raven haired beauty. And right now, I just haven't found the actress for her. But when I do, I'll let you know.
As for Harvey Holmes? That one's easy. As he looks right now, Jim Carrey would be perfect. Harvey Holmes is a comedic character, but takes himself seriously. Jim Carrey would be the one for that role. Stay tuned.
