This week's question is: It is up to you to do a Kickstarter campaign for your favorite book!!! Who are you casting for the main characters?
MY ANSWER: Oh crud mudgins! I hate this kind of question. I never picture particular actors to be cast as my favorite characters. My brain just doesn't function that way. I'm not even sure if certain actors could pull off some of my fave characters.


I much prefer newbies! Like the cast of Vampire Academy! They are all totally new to me and I love them already! I think from what I've seen of the teaser trailer that they will do good jobs! Will have to wait til February to find out of course.

In terms of Divergent, well, that's a little iffy. Not loving Tris actress a lot, but since I didn't watch the show on ABC Family, only through commercials, I don't totally know her, so she'll do. I LOVE Theo who's cast as Four! He was freaking awesome in the last Underworld movie, so we'll see how he does Four! Have high hopes for him! We have the same birthday too! Love that man! 
So hawt!!
So in conclusion, I cannot in good sense choose actors to be cast as characters in one of my favorite books. I'd want a set of newbie actors entirely! As long as their appearances can fit the role and they act good. There will have to be auditions of course.

And that's my final answer! ;)

  1. I like the idea of picking newbie actors, why didn't I think of that?!? This was a hard one for me this week, but it turned out to be a lot of fun. I also need to read Vampire Academy - it's been on my tbr forever!!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my FF. Haven't read Vampire Academy. I feel much the same. What's in my head, doesn't computer to real life people, although I managed to come up with two for my favourite book.

    Happy Friday!

  3. Ironically, I can't see your first picture either, Jessica. I guess we're just not meant to see each others' pictures today! I agree with you about the Vampire Academy cast - I know the girl who's playing Rose from a couple of other things, and I think she'll be great, but I don't know the others. As far as Divegent goes, I was a bit surprised by Shalene. The ABC Family show she was in was SO incredibly cheesy that I just couldn't stand to watch it (and I gave it a chance for a whole season), but I think that she might be a good actress in something better. We shall see!

  4. I'm definitely with you on picking newbies. I couldn't think of anyone I'd really want to star in Suzanne Johnson's Sentinels of New Orleans so I picked the ones I really wouldn't want to be cast instead. Here’s my F&F

  9. Oh, I'm the same. I rarely associate characters to actors or vice versa, and I much prefer newbie, no-name actors and actresses. I can't wait to see the Vampire Academy. So excited! I'm staying mum on the Divergent cast. LOL. I might have to reread the series again. Then again, maybe not—it'll only contrast the movie more. :D Thanks for stopping by FF earlier. ♥ Happy Friday!

  12. I loved Theo James in the last Underworld movie too! He's a total scene stealer, I adore him.

  13. I don't picture particular actors either, which can make it hard. I had to really think about mine. I actually like the girl in Divergent--she's pretty good--but I'm more uncertain about the guy playing Four. The only thing I've seen him in is Downton Abbey, where he played a foreign man-whore who died in the middle of sex. Yikes! Let's hope he makes us love him in Divergent!

  14. HAHAHA 'Crud Mudgins'!! *runs to write that down*
    And yay Theo James is a fellow Brit. First saw him in a series called Bedlam over here.
    I understand that you can't choose actors. It's really hard.

    Thanks for stopping by my eye candy FF.

  17. Great answer! I can't wait for Divergent, but agree that Theo was a fab choice...plus he's rather easy on the eye!

  18. Newbie actors is a good choice. That way you won't associate them with previous roles.

    Thanks for stopping by my FF :)

  19. Yeah, I watched like an episode or two of the Secret Life show and fell over that she was cast as Tris. Not at all who I pictured, but I'll give her a chance. And she can seriously thank Theo for it. YES to him as Four!!!

  21. I love Theo! I haven't seen Shailene in anything, but I've heard she was amazing in The Descendents and The Spectacular Now. Every actor has to be in some bad things before they get to be in good things, right?

  22. I am not so familiar with the cast of Divergent but I think they would fit the role. Of course, the final verdict would come out after we watch the movie.
