Like many long-time Mitch Rapp fans, I’m counting down the days until the young CIA agent’s origin story comes to the big screen in American Assassin.
Every reader has their own idea of how this wildly popular black ops hero looks, how he moves, and what he sounds like. I totally get it. I inhabit the character for an entire year while working on a book and, to me, he becomes just as real as my much less dangerous next-door neighbor.
I’ve spent three years writing about Mitch and can definitely picture Dylan O’Brien in this iconic role. I think he’s a great choice and can’t wait to see how he makes the character his own.
