Type Casting

Glen and I often pretend that his novels are being made into a movie and that we have to cast actors for the various characters. (I always try to work Clive Owen in there somehow; he'd make an excellent "Walt" from Correction Road: emotionally damaged, alchoholic, aged but appealing, rough yet handsome.)

The folks on Design Observer have been casting actors to play famous typographers:

Liev Schrieber as Giambattista Bodoni

Hugh Laurie as Nicolas Jensen

Benicio del Toro as Neville Brody

Edward Norton as Chip Kidd
