Sleeper by S. M. Johnston - Blog Tour: Dream Cast and Giveaway

Today is my stop for the Sleeper tour and I'd like to welcome author S. M. Johnston to the blog. Sharon is one of the Aussie Owned and Read girls, and a great friend. Today she's going to tell us about her Sleeper dream cast...

Main Character, Mishca: 
Amandla Stenberg or Keenan Macwilliam: Amandla is a little young at the moment, but in a few years time she’d be perfect. It’d be whether she could do the Aussie accent. My other choice would be Kenan from The Saddle Club, but I don’t think she’s still acting.

Love interest, Ryder: 
Robert Sheehan, but only with his Mortal Instruments haircut and he’d need to beef up just a little and be able to lose the accent.

Second love interest, Colin: 
Ryan Gosling *drools* Originally I had a younger Colin Firth in my mind, but to have him playing the role would be a bit creepy now, too big of an age gap. Ryan Gosling, however, has the right amount of vulnerability and charm. But if I went with an Aussie it would be Joel Edgerton.

The best friend, Nerissa: 
Indiana Evans. She’s got the perfect baby blues and has that sweet, innocent look about her. And by book three, this choice will make a lot more sense.

Ryder’s best friend, Finlay: 
Brenton Thwaites. Finlay is a bit dark and broody, but at the same time he has a wicked sense of humour. I think Brenton’s looks are a good match.

Mishca’s Mum, Alicia Richardson: 
Naomi Watts. It was a tough swap up here between Naomi, Cate Blanchet and Nicole Kidman. Elle McPherson is also a good match.

Mishca's Dad, Tom Richardson: 
Eric Bana. Tom is still in good shape for his age. So while Eric is a bit younger, it can still work.

Ryder’s hot chick friend, Sophitia: 
Abbie Cornish . Sophitia actually has green hair, but I think Abbie can pull it off. She’s also a very sensual being with just a touch of snark.

Ryder’s side-kick, Connor: 
Callan McAuliffe. Not trying to stereotype Callan as a side-kick after I-Am-Number-Four, but he has this innocent nerdy look that is so Connor.

Mysterious hot priest, Markus: 
Chris Hemsworth. He can even keep the long hair to fit in to his Thor filming commitments!

So that’s my wish-list cast for the main characters and supporting characters in Sleeper. A girl can dream.

About the book:

A new heart should mean new life, not a living nightmare.

Mishca Richardson’s life is at an all-time high after her heart transplant. With new boyfriend, Ryder, the two of them have the perfect summer romance. Even the nightmares that have been plaguing her sleep since her operation can’t dull the high she’s on.

Things start to unravel as Mishca develops superhuman abilities. She does her best to hide them so as not to end up a science experiment in a lab. But she can’t ignore the instant attraction she experiences when she meets her university professor, Colin Reed.

Torn between the blossoming love and the obsession, Mishca must decide if she wants Ryder or Colin. But the organization responsible for her changes and her connection to Colin, is moving to secure Mishca for himself so that she can be the weapon he always intended her to be. If Mishca can’t resist her programming she’ll have a lot more to worry about than romance.
