For Jacobs, I'd pictured James Spader. He's a favourite actor of mine and I think he could play virtually anything. To paraphrase a quote from Kevin Smith when talking about Ben Affleck, I think that Spader could play the shark in a remake of Jaws heh.

For Morton, I saw Edward Furlong. His life somewhat mirrors Morton's, and I always recall Furlong's grungy look from T2 when imagining aspiring young rock stars.

Jamie- Colin Farrell he was great on this year's true detective

Necro-ing this thread because I just finished "Revival." Now, this may only be because the hubs and I have been watching a lot of "Parks and Rec" recently, but...Usually I never have a very clear picture of book characters in my head, but this time Jamie (or at least young adult through recovered addict-Jamie) was definitely

and Charles Jacobs was present-day
. Especially as he aged through the book. He has that perfect look-handsome and charming, yet intensely haunted and unhinged just below that smooth surface.
