By Josh, I Think He's Got It!
Oh where to begin! What makes an awesome leading lad? He's the guy who respects your wishes without being a doormat. He's tough enough to fight off anyone who would bring you harm, but secure enough to let you fight your own battles. He's experienced life, has street smarts as well as plain ol' smarts, but he's not corrupt. And of course, he's totally hot!
If I could cast one actor to play Davey in my Extreme Hauntings series, I'd choose Josh Hutcherson. I think he'd do an awesome job capturing the depth of Davey's struggles, but still keep him upbeat, not to mention…well, I can't say because that happens in the next book, Detour 2 Death. (You get a few good hints in School's Out 4-Ever.) I know for sure that Kaylee would definitely approve.
So who's your favorite leading lad? Personally, I'm torn between Hugh Jackman, Vin Diesel and Jensen Ackles (huge Supernatural fan! ;) )
