I think every writer hopes that their book is made in to a block-buster movie (that doesn’t butcher the book too badly). With that in mind I think I know one person I’d like in the film; Daniel Bruhl. Maybe that will be one request I have when I sell it off, yes?
I like his portrayal of the characters in “Joyeux Noel”, “Woman in Gold”, “Inglorious Bastards” and “Burnt”. He has been in many films that I have yet to see. Mostly, I am jealous of his ability to speak so many languages. When I first went to the university I wanted to become a linguist, to speak as many foreign languages as possible. Without going into a lot of detail of the hows and whys, I ended up learning one of the most feared and difficult languages in the world; mathematics!
Below are some clips of Mr. Bruhl speaking French, English then German.
