In our development of this feature we discovered that the book blog Lit Snit featured “Casting Call Fridays.” Our Casting Call feature is in no way purposefully copying or stealing this idea and any similarities is purely coincidental. Also, you should check out their casting because it rocks!
Welcome to the inaugural post for our new feature (started along with some other VERY cool bloggers) called Casting Call. We’ve all done it; obsessed with a book so much we cast the characters. Maybe it’s just to help us picture the book or maybe it’s because you really want the movie to be made. I say whatever floats your boat! Personally I’m always hoping the books I read actually make it to the movie stage so I always have a general idea of what a character should look like but a good 80% of the time I don’t agree with who gets cast for the actual movies. (Since they don’t pay me I don’t think it bothers them all that much.)
For our first post we went with a book we’ve all read and become slightly obsessed with. . .The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson. I didn’t base my choices on acting skills as much as the theme of the book. (Ok maybe I based it a bit on things I’m obsessed with (HOT guys, all things British, HOT British guys, catchy songs, etc.)
Let’s start with my girl Lennie.
I say Carly Rae Jepsen. She’s cute and quirky, Definitely has to “I didn’t know I was beautiful” attitude we see from Len.
I LOVE Jennifer Lawerence. She’s stunning and a GREAT actress IMO. She can go both serious and crazy as only Bailey would.
I really liked him in Supernatural (I stopped watching when they had what I refer to as the “Clown Episode”) and think he can give off the cowboy/skater/completely soulful damaged BF look.
Ok so maybe I’m slightly
obsessed in love One Direction. It’s ok, they are all 18 or older (I’ve checked) They are so freaking adorable I can’t stop watching their videos on youtube. Harry Styles would be a great Joe. Just look at that smile! You can’t say that wouldn’t light up a room.
Speaking of Joe’s older brothers, let’s talk Marcus or Ethan Peck because that’s how I see him. I’m sorry but I just don’t want to live in a world where this gorgeous family isn’t at least possible.
Doped up Lothario of the family with kooky facial hair?? I couldn’t picture anyone else but Anthony Kiedis
Now I realize Gram was this tall woman but I say we ignore that for now. Anyone remember Annie Potts in Pretty in Pink? She totally fits in this family.
So what do you think?? Be sure to go check out everyone else’s casts! Since this is the first post we’ve all done a full cast or close to that but starting next week we will break up the cast so everyone can blog hop and participate.
