Here at BCB we’ve written a few times (here and here) about our love for the gruesomely-delightful comic series Chew, by John Layman and Rob Guillory. Well, apparently Chew is going to be adapted into a TV show — by the same folks behind the pants-crappingly good Walking Dead!!
MTV writer Josh Wigler already offered his ideal casting picks here, which includes Ken Leung as Tony Chu and Tricia Helfer as food critic and love interest Amelia Mintz.
Seriously, I’m well qualified. Yes, I’m aware that Amelia is blonde and blue-eyed, which lies well outside my phenotype, but they can do some amazing things with wigs and contacts in this day and age (just look at Lil’ Kim!). And I already have a fat crush on Tony so I won’t be a prima donna about make-out scenes — I’ll even put in extra rehearsal time! But most importantly, I already spend all day shoveling food in my gob and then writing updates about it on Facebook. So I wouldn’t even have to rely on method acting because the method is a little thing called MY LIFE.
PICK ME! Can’t wait.
Thanks Char Char!
