Potential for Acting

I've been perusing the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America site for helpful advice on marketing novels. Along the way, I came across an article for Jeff Carlson's Plague Wars trailer. I have never heard of Carlson or his book before, but I was fascinated by the idea of making a live-action trailer for a book. What a great way to get word of your book out there to people! Like most authors (I assume), I'd love to see my novel translated to the big screen (and into a graphic novel). So the thought of making a trailer fits right in. In fact, I can already visualize it.

Is there anyone out there who might like to play a gutsy, if clumsy, heroine in a short 2-4 minute preview?
