Have you seen Sherlock Holmes? Have you read the book? Will Robert Downey Jr be Sherlock Holmes in your mind next time you read some Arthur Conan Doyle? I prefer to read the book before seeing the movie of most adaptations (natch), but sometimes the movie is in release or at least promotion before I read the book, and then it's too late to picture any characters. I know only pictured Brad Pitt and Ed Norton in the Fight Club, even though I hadn't seen the movie yet.
Suey had the players come up with a word to describe the situation where you are reading a book, and you end up being able to only picture the character as the actor that portrays that character.
