It’s no secret that authors dream of having the rights to their books sold for film or TV. It’s also no secret that we often imagine the cast of our novels as we’re writing or once the book is published.

I actually envisioned Blake Lively/Esther Williams as Vivi and Emma Stone/Katharine Hepburn as Max while I was writing.  And then I put together the rest of this cast list just for fun:















Max’s Story

  • Max: Emma Stone
  • Marianne, the secretary: Bel Powley
  • James, the journalism student: Logan Shroyer
  • Professor L.: Joe Morton
  • Charlie, the co-worker: Ansel Elgort

Vivi’s Story

  • Vivi: Blake Lively
  • Ruby, the swimmer: Florence Pugh
  • Dean, the diver: Theo James
  • Jack, the agent: Gabriel Macht
  • Maria, the sister: Selena Gomez
  • Johnny Weissmuller: Johnny Weismuller 😉
