The usual suspects

Here’s something fun I came up with as answer to John’s new challenge: Crime Cast-A-Thon! You can check his post for the details (and rules) but long story short you need to put together a crew of expert criminals to steal the Maltese Falcon, which has been recently discovered and will be displayed at the MacGuffin Museum of Ancient Artifacts. maltese-falcon


After long pondering and evaluating strengths and weaknesses, here is my dream team of criminals to pull this heist.

Aisha is resourceful, smart, charming and deadly. Her attention to details happily complements her ability to see the big picture and plan ahead, which makes her the perfect choice to be the brain of the operation.


Every leader needs a capable right hand who keeps track of who is doing what and makes sure everything goes smoothly. Rusty is the man for the job bringing to the table his smooth-talker skills and his ability to read people.


In this day and age, you cannot plan a heist without a IT expert but why choose your average brilliant nerd when you can have Mai Linh who’s not only tech savvy but has mad fighting skills!


Organising a “job” always requires all kinds of materials, devices and vehicles so who better than Red to provide anything the crew might need? If he can do it in jail he will thrive in the free world.


A mind for business and a body for sin, con-artist extraordinaire and perfect lure Sydney Prosser will charm your wallet, bank account, personal passwords or whatever she needs out of you… with style.


Last but not least, a wheel man with unparalleled skills, steel nerves and good in a tight spot: the Driver. He goes like the wind and he never gets caught, plus he can keep his mouth shut.

  1. Okay, I’ll admit you took me by surprise. When nobody responded after the first week I figured nobody really was going to.

    Anyway, it looks like you’ve got a good variety of crooks. I can’t say I’ve seen a lot of these movies, but you look like you’ve got everything under control.

  2. Nice to see ‘The Driver’ featured. I absolutely loved this film on release, and don’t think I have seen it since. I was never a big fan of O’Neal, but that role was perfect for him.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Very cool options. Nice mix. Made me think what my own would be.

If you're all right, then say something
