Author Mentally Casts Film Version Of Unfinished Novel
WASHINGTON (CAP) - This week freelance writer Miles Kramer confirmed that he has mentally cast actress Rachel McAdams to play the female romantic lead in the film adaptation of his new novel, which is as yet untitled.
"I've only written a few pages of the book so far," he told industry reporters. "But I really think McAdams will absolutely shine in the role of Alice - or Dakota - not yet sure on the name, who will be the love interest of the main character, Devon or Michael. Or maybe Brad?"
When asked about casting for his male lead, Kramer admitted that he was still trying to decide between Brad Pitt and Edward Norton.
"If I went with Pitt, it might be weird for the character's name to also be Brad," he noted. "But then again, it might be kind of cool. Still, I think Edward Norton would be a pretty good choice as well. I guess it will all depend on how the character develops as I keep writing."
Kramer added that he was confident that his novel was going to translate exceptionally well to the big screen once it was finished.
"I'm pretty sure it's going to be optioned right away," he said. "It's really going to touch on a lot of issues that men and women struggle with when it comes to life and love in the modern world. It's also set in Seattle, which is such a great city to film in."
As of press time, Kramer had set his five-page novel aside and was playing Minesweeper on his laptop to "help clear his head and get those creative juices flowing."
WASHINGTON (CAP) - In a sweeping and unusual move, the Justice Department has secretly obtained two months' worth of telephone records of journalists working for Cosmopolitan magazine, uncovering in the process hundreds of secret sex tips beyond those published in every issue of the magazine for the last 27 years.
According to Cosmo editor-in-chief Joanna Coles - author of How To Set His Man Bits On Fire, Possibly Literally - federal authorities obtained cellular, office and home telephone records of five individual sex tip reporters and both the Sex Tip Editor and Deputy Sex Tip Editor. She called the Justice Department's actions a "massive and unprecedented intrusion" into sex-tip-gathering activities.
"Which ironically enough would also describe many of our sex tips," she noted.
WASILLA, Alaska (CAP) - As scientists continue to monitor recent explosions and seismic activity in Alaska's Cleveland Volcano, former Gov. Sarah Palin has informed local media outlets that she can indeed see the volcano from her porch, but that her family is safe and sound.
"Oh, yah, plain as day - it's practically in my back yard," Palin said as she offered chewing tobacco to reporters on her front lawn. "Todd and I were out back rustling up some grouse for dinner when we seen the ash and felt the rumblin'.
"So's I thought to myself, There goes ole Cleveland again!" she added. "But then I started yelling for a Code Pompei because who knows what was gonna happen!"
