So if the series actually comes to pass who would your fantasy cast be to play the key characters?
Here are my picks - for Anita (Scarlett Johannson with hair dyed of course), Jean Claude (Kyle Schmid because he worked so well as Henry Fitzroy in Blood Ties) and Richard (Josh Duhamel).
What are yours?
Leave a comment about any of the main or supporting characters from early or later Blake.

Lionsgate to produce Anita Blake for IFC
US cable network IFC has commissioned Lionsgate to make a two hour sci fi pilot based on vampire novel Anita Blake.
The series, which is based on a series of erotic fantasy books by Laurell K Hamilton, is set to be executive produced by X-Files and Final Destination producer Glen Morgan.
Craig Cegielski, EVP, programming and sales, Lionsgate International Television, told TBIvision that the Rainbow Media-owned broadcaster will air the two hour pilot next year, before deciding whether to order a full season. "It's a sexier Buffy The Vampire Slayer," he says.
