My Zombie Hero in the Movie Version of Dead Sexy

Hot Actors I’d Like to See Play My Zombie Hero in the Movie Version of Dead Sexy

by Paige Tyler

If you read my blog stop on the tour, How I Came Up with the Story for Dead Sexy, it’s no surprise that the hunks from Supernatural are right at the top of the list when it comes to actors I’d like to see play Drake Parrish, my zombie hero in the movie version of DEAD SEXY.

Jensen Ackles
Jensen Ackles could totally carry off Drake’s dry humor and brooding personality, while Jared Padalecki could completely carry off Drake’s sensitive, tortured side. And as for what they’d look like zombified, something tells me they’d be just as handsome.

Jared Padalecki

As for who else could play hero, I’d be fine with David Boreanaz, too. After all those years playing Angel, he certainly knows how to do tall, dark and brooding.

I’d be okay with Tyler Hoechlin—from Teen Wolf (love that show, too, by the way!)—playing Drake, too. Not only is he ruggedly handsome and looks great without his shirt, but he does brooding pretty dang well, too.

So, what actor do you think could play a brooding tortured hero who makes being a zombie look good?


Can her love save him from a curse worse than death?
Romance author Simone Kent thinks she might just have found the most perfect guy in all of New York City - in bed and out.
But Drake Parrish is about as far from perfect as any man can get. Eight years ago, he was cursed by an evil Voodoo priestess to live part of his life as a zombie. Since then, he has lived like a recluse on New York’s Upper East Side, afraid to go out for fear he’ll suddenly turn into one of the walking dead.
The sex is the hottest either of them has ever experienced and Simone discovers just how naughty she can be with Drake, while he finds himself feeling things for Simone he hasn’t felt in a very long time. When the Voodoo priestess learns of their relationship, however, she comes after him again. She's determined he won't have a future with Simone, even if that means killing both him and the woman he loves.

  1. Earlier this week I was reading a cowboy romance when I realized it was the same author as the Zombie book we were promoting this weekend. Fun to switch genre gears with you Paige!

  2. Sounds like a fun series to add to my TBR pile! Funny but I don't think of zombies as sexy, maybe I need to rethink,

  3. Lee - You're welcome!

    Pearls - LOL! Awesome! So glad you're loving my cowboy romance! I love writing whatever story moves me, in whatever genre that is! Hope you'll pick up DEAD SEXY!

  4. I read your author blurb above again today and zeroed in on the word "western." I hadn't realized you wrote some hot western romances. So I checked it on Amazon and woohee - Buckle Bunnies and alpha cowboys! I had no idea you had written so many books, which is great so I won't run out of reading material for awhile! :-)

    1. Janice - LOL! I'm so glad you checked out my other books! I have lot of sexy excerpts on my website for all my books, so I hope you'll check them out! And don't forget HER PERFECT MATE, the first book in my X-OPS Series coming out May 2014 with Sourcebooks!


  5. After reading Kylie Scott's zombie books I'm on the look out for more romances that contain zombies. And this is such a different storyline!
