Bringing Maggie Home by Kim Vogel Sawyer


Cast your book as a movie – who would play your main characters and why?

If Bringing Maggie Home appeared on the Big Screen, I would like to see Olympia Dukakis as Hazel. The actress’s appearance and spunk match Hazel perfectly. Margaret Diane would be best played by Sandra Bullock because I think Sandra could manage to be both snarky and sympathetic. Meghan’s a little tougher, but I think Lily Collins, who played Sandra Bullock’s daughter in The Blind Side would fit Meghan’s character well—tough underneath but innocent-looking on the outside. And Sean, Meghan’s partner, absolutely Will Estes, who currently stars on Blue Bloods as the youngest Reagan son. He’s already familiar with playing a police officer, and if we cast him, and if I got to visit the set, he MIGHT introduce me to Tom Selleck. That would be a win-win.
