Sam is the male protagonist in the “San Francisco Secrets.” Sam is a former San Francisco Seals baseball player turned private eye. Sam is a tough guy and was a war hero in World War II fighting on D Day and at the Battle of the Bulge.
The best actor to play Sam would be Jon Hamm. He could portray a man who is admired by men and is attractive to women
Amelia is the main female character in the “San Francisco Secrets”. She is a TWA stewardess and fell head-over-heels in love with Sam. Amelia has helped Sam unravel some mysteries and has shown a real knack as a PI. She marries Sam in “San Francisco Secrets” after their whirlwind courtship. Amelia is 25 years old, blonde hair and big blue eyes. She is often told that she looks like Grace Kelly.
I think Amanda Seyfried would be perfect to play Amelia. She’s beautiful, the same age as Amelia, who attracts a lot of attention from all of the men who cross her path.
Vince is a seasoned San Francisco Police Detective and Sam’s best friend. He grew up in a tough neighborhood in San Francisco and is known for his gravelly voice and tough demeanor.
Bruce Campbell, who stars in the TV series “Burn Notice” as Sam, would be a great Vince. He certainly could be an intimidating, hard-boiled detective.
Jimmy Jankow was Sam’s best friend. They met in England while preparing for the invasion on D Day. Jimmy and Sam were planning to become business partners until Jimmy is suddenly murdered. Jimmy was like a big brother to Sam and would be seen in a lot of flashbacks. The ghost of Jimmy continues to hang over Sam.
I love Simon Baker who was in the Mentalist series and in movies such as “The Devil Wears Prada.” He is perfect as a blonde pretty boy who can be a tough guy.
Capt. Mark Silver
Amelia attracts the attention of an older, debonair TWA pilot, Captain Mark Silver, who is known for his womanizing. Capt. Silver is ready to pull out all of the stops to win Amelia for his own in “San Francisco Secrets” including wining and dining her in Paris, Rome and the famous Rainbow Room in New York City. James Brolin would be great as Mark Silver.
Susan Howard was once married to Sam Slater before World War II. Their brief marriage was ended when Sam returned from Europe. In “San Francisco Secrets” Susan suddenly reappears in Sam’s life and has some big problems. Diane Lane would be ideal as Susan.
Dr. John O’Dell
Dr. John O’Dell is a prominent San Francisco physician who is being blackmailed in “San Francisco Secrets.” He hires Sam Slater to find out who is threatening to reveal his secrets. Geoffrey Rush would be a good Dr. O’Dell.
Dr. Bernard Ellis
Dr. Bernard Ellis is Dr. O’Dell’s partner and a man who is on a collision with Sam and Amelia in their investigation. Jeff Goldblum could bring the right amount of sinister mystery to Dr. Ellis
