Faces for Mark's Stories

Recommended Posts

I got this idea from Dom Luka's board. Mark generally has models for his characters- Tony Dow is the basis for the Hayes look, for example- but I thought it might be interesting to ask how YOU picture the characters.

 

I'll start.

 

Actor Ryan Devlin is how I picture Mark in On the Mark.

Of course, at this point he's too old to play teenaged Mark, but I think he'd be a damn good mid-20's to early 30's Mark. I've got Mark pictured as having a narrow, triangular face that's cute, very whitebread, and endearingly dorkly.

 

So, any of you have an actor or a model that you've pictured as one of the characters in Mark's stories?

I feel like JJ's blond. I picture him more like either this:

Or this

To be honest, now that I'm thinking about it, Jesse McCartney is more Drew than he is JJ. I think Jeremy Sumpter-during-his-Peter-Pan era hits JJ closer.

 

Mark, what's your thought?

And aren't the Cramptons generally blond as well, Tonto and Maman notwithstanding? You described JJ as having the Crampton good looks, if I recall. With Bitty having a blond father, and Jim either being blond or having blond hair in his family, I think it makes sense for JJ being blond. Plus, this kid looks a little too Russian or Eastern Euro to work for JJ. JJ's gotta look completely WASP.

I can see this, but I think Jeremy's right. Didn't I already write that JJ had the Schluter strawberry blond hair?

 

Yeah, but look at that bubble butt!!

Here's a guy I think would make a good JJ- Sterling Knight...he's part of the Disney tween show circuit, but he's actually 22 years old.

I could EASILY see a middle school version of this guy getting picked on for being cute in a femme way.

Psycho Derek from One Tree Hill as Lark? I see Lark as having very blond hair and a long, Dutch-like face. I've been watching youtube clips of Psycho Derek and it struck me that Matt Barr looks close to how I picture Lark in my head.

This guy might make a good Captain George Granger...although maybe he's a bit older.

A little Paint shop will change the hair color ... this one looks like he's got scoliosis

If does doubles the girl she will toss him up and catch him ... he will feel a new crunchy feeling ... I guess by that time knock twice would not matter

Not really. George Granger is 20, Matt Barr(the guy) is 26. Plus you gotta remember that in the 18th century, people tended to age faster- especially when you consider that George Granger is already married with two kids and has been through a lot of war. I can't imagine George would look all that young.

 

But hmm, that's an interesting take. I was thinking Lark because I'm positive that Mark mentioned Lark having a long Dutchmen's face...I never would have considered Granger.

 

As for photoshop...it would change his hair, but it wouldn't take away the obvious Russian/Eastern European look there. Dude's gotta look WASP.

My vision: take this guy, give him Derek's hair, a gap between his front teeth, and a more sinister look, and that's probably what I was thinking.

That's a thought, but as Jeremy said, his looks are almost Dutch, and he's bonier than I visualize Granger. He'd have definitive English looks.

I keep feeling that Matt Barr looks like someone who'd be in one of your stories- mainly because he has that Dutch look you really seem to love, and that California blond hair. Probably that random hook-up Brad had with some surfer named Jan, I think.

 

So what about Sterling Knight for JJ? I keep thinking he hits pretty close- right facial shape, sharper features, right hair color, and the right air of being cute but in a really young and almost feminine way while at the same time looking like he belongs to a WASP family. And he has the same deal of looking much younger than he actually is- I picture JJ being the type of guy who gets carded for an R-rated movie when he's 22. Much like this guy would if he weren't a Disney star.

 

You were thinking Jesse McCartney, but I'm thinking Jesse McCartney looks too All-American-boy-next-door and jock-ish for JJ. Our mutual buddy Dallas kinda agreed with me on that, saying JJ's a little too prissy to look like Jesse McCartney. Jesse McCartney would fit Drew better, actually.

Oh, that Sterling Knight kid comes extremely close to my vision of JJ (note to self: get rich, buy television, stay informed on who the famous people are...).

I see him with just slightly lighter hair (but this one is close enough) and a slightly longer face (which is what I imagine for all Cramptons). But this is quite close.

 

I also like your Lark although I used to picture Lark a lot shorter and somewhat less athletic, and with a slightly squarish face. In other words, not nearly as handsome. ;) But he has something Lark-y about him :2thumbs:

Well, that's kind of why I picked him...he's got a rugged look about him as if he'd been at sea for quite some time, he has a strong face and looks like he could command a ship. If you gave him a baby face I would think the crew wouldn't take him as seriously....I wouldn't call him pretty though, not exactly like George Granger was described.

Sterling Knight is on a Disney show called Sonny With A Chance. Horrid show, but he's actually pretty good on it. He was also in Seventeen Again with Zac Efron as well. Pretty cute guy, and I thought about it and was like, "You know, he actually would make a better JJ than Jesse McCartney would." Bonus is that his body type actually seems better suited for figure skating anyway.

 

Matt Barr is on this CW show called Hellcats, but he's best-known for his role as Pyscho Derek on the teen soap One Tree Hill. He did batshit crazy extremely well. I'm not normally into that whole Nordic blonde look, but damn he's hot.

Armie Hammer from the Social Network as Captain Granger? I was thinking about it- he's tall, blond, well-built, with a face that's very strong yet still pretty. He looks WASPy as all hell. And the bonus is that, if you've ever heard his speaking voice, he has this voice that only a guy from a rich background could have.

Yeah, I thought the same. Same he didn't get a Golden Globe nomination. I do know Armie won me over as a fan. I was thinking, "If Mark ever needs a tall, blond, well-built blond guy who looks like he should be a preppy Ivy League fraternity guy, Armie's his man."
