Cast of Damaged Goods

by maddiemoiselle | created - 03 Jan 2013 | updated - 17 Feb 2013 | Public

I am writing a book and even though I've tried not to, I have created a 'dream cast' for a film, though by the time I'm done, some of these people will probably be too old to do it anymore, namely the teenagers.

1. Sandra Bullock

Producer | Miss Congeniality

Sandra Annette Bullock was born in Arlington, a Virginia suburb of Washington, D.C. Her mother, Helga Bullock (née Helga Mathilde Meyer), was a German opera singer. Her father, John W. Bullock, was an American voice teacher, who was born in Alabama, of Irish, English, French, and German descent. ...

Sandra Bullock as Dana Sherbrook. Mother of three Dana is overprotective of her daughter, Harper, but doesn't realize it. Dana's major flaw is that she cares too much, regardless of who she's dealing with. At the end of the day, her children and her faith come first.

2. Paul Rudd

Actor | Ant-Man

Paul Stephen Rudd was born in Passaic, New Jersey. His parents, Michael and Gloria, both from Jewish families, were born in the U.K. He has one sister, who is three years younger than he is. Paul traveled with his family during his early years, because of his father's airline job at TWA. His family...

Paul Rudd as Immanuel Sherbrook. Father of three Immanuel has been married to his wife, Dana, for twenty years. Unlike his wife and mother of his children, Immanuel understands that his kids need their space. He is slightly naive to their individual antics and needs, but his job as an adoption attorney gives him an advantage not only in the lawsuit plaguing his family but in connecting with his children.

3. Sarah Hyland

Sarah Hyland as Gabriella Sherbrook. Gabriella, or 'Gabby', is the eldest child of the Sherbrook family. Gabby is a senior in high school that struggles to make herself seen to her parents, because her younger sister Harper always seems to be most important. Naive and completely oblivious to the world around her, Gabby makes friends with a group of people that completely alter her life forever. But is it for the better?

(I'm not sold on this one, but he's the best I can do) Jake T. Austin as Saxon Sherbrook. Saxon is the twin brother to Harper Sherbrook, and at sixteen he knows just how much his sister's condition really affects his family. For that, he always has a positive (and often comedic) outlook to everything, but he is much more complicated than he seems to be. Under the surface, Saxon is just as vulnerable as his twin and struggles to be seen as important as she is.

5. Mackenzie Foy

Mackenzie Christine Foy was born 10 November, 2000. She began her career as a child model in 2004, working for Garnet Hill, Polo Ralph Lauren, and Guess Kids. She has also modeled in print ads for companies such as Rubbermaid, Jones Apparel Group,The Walt Disney Company, Mattel, Target Corporation,...

Mackenzie Foy as Harper Sherbrook. Harper is sixteen, but she looks nine. She was born with a condition called Turner syndrome that makes her appear much younger than she actually is, and has plagued her life with illness.

Morris Chestnut as Alexander Flint. As a lawyer hoping to appear professional, Mr. Flint does not reveal much about himself. On the surface, he seems like a stoic.

He is strictly business and will do (and force Harper to do) anything that will help them win the case.

7. Jennifer Lopez

Actress | Gigli

Emma Roberts as Stephanie Hawthorne. Stephanie is the blonde bombshell, the new girl in school that the entire student body seems to be lusting after...but she's taken by Johnny Abbott. Past her outer appearance, however, Stephanie is blunt and in your face, but is a good actor at acting sweet when need be. Along with her best friend, Clove, Stephanie takes Gabby under her wing and puts her through such a catastrophic metamorphosis that they completely change who the oldest Sherbrook is.

9. Lucy Hale

Lucy Hale as Clove Robinson. Clover Robinson (but don't call her Clover) is quiet and withdrawn, but she is not what she seems to be. Clove is much more blunt than even Stephanie, but unlike her best friend, there is no heart of gold just waiting to shine through. Clove has a reputation, known best for being "easier to screw than a light bulb". Along with Stephanie, she becomes a "role model" for Gabby, but for all the wrong reasons.

Josh Hutcherson as Frank Lloyd, Jr. Frankie, as his friends call him, is the popular senior boy. He's the all around good guy, who plays sports and is the captain of the varsity football team. With Saxon as a sophomore on that team, he takes the young Sherbrook under his wing and shapes him in his own image, like Clove and Stephanie have done to Gabby. But Frankie's choices could cost Saxon greatly, in more ways than one.

Sadie is very athletic and joins the cheerleading squad at her new school in order to fit in. When Saxon wins over her heart, it is certainly not without conflict.

Lori Loughlin as Lydia Mooney. Ms. Mooney tries her best to be strictly business, but what gets in the way is her overly inflated ego. Her biggest weakness is that her favorite subject is herself. Ms. Mooney is bitter and angry that she has to compete against Mr. Flint in the case of Sherbrook vs. Sherbrooks, knowing that he is the best lawyer that Charleston, South Carolina has to offer.

15. Sofía Vergara

Actress | Hot Pursuit

Sofia Vergara as Celeste Moreno. Celeste is just as doting as Claudia is to her boss, Mr. Flint, but with one difference: Celeste actually cares for her job and employer. Hired mainly by Ms. Mooney as a translator for Hispanics, Celeste loves to gossip just as much as the Sherbrooks' teenagers do. However, not matter how much Ms. Mooney wants to dismiss Celeste, she can't because they're "best friends".

Steve Carell as Kent Norridge. Kent is Dana's older brother, and he is quick to tell anyone that. A bit egotistical, Saxon's sometimes poor sense of humor more than likely came from Kent.
