Random Musing...

Whatever happened to turning Donna Tartt's The Secret History into a movie? I can't believe it never happened. In college my friend Meg and I appointed a few of the 'hiperati' in our school's Greek/Latin scholars program to serve as the characters in that novel, including a rather banal, dopey chap we privately dubbed "Bunny." Any thoughts on who you'd cast if a movie were made today? Adam Brody and Scarlett Johanssen came to my mind for a start. --Amy


  1. I always pictured the cast of Less Than Zero in the roles (Andrew McCarthy, Jamie Gertz, Robert Downey Jr., James Spader), with Downey playing Bunny. After that, Gywnnie or Winona and Ethan Hawke. But since that obvs. never happened, I'll suggest Topher Grace, Kirsten Dunst, and Cillian Murphy for starters. How's that for random? --Kim

  2. Oh God, a young James Spader is SO Bunny.... -- Amy
