message 1: by Emma (new)

Emma I'm so excited for this movie! The script is already done, and it was written by Daniel Waters. The producer is Don Murphy.
Who do you think should play all of the characters?

♥ Becky  22  (becky22) | 19 comments I don't know, but Adrian better be hot.
Wait..Adrian won't even be in the movie, will he? Not if it's just the first book. Hm.

I always find it really hard to pick actors for characters that I see very clearly in my mind. Nobody looks like them!:D

Who would you pick, Emma?


message 3: by Renae (new)

Renae (myboybuildscoffins) | 10 comments I really want Pheobe Tonkin to be Rose. I think she'd be excellent! Ben Barnes is popular for Dimitri but I think he'd have to bulk up a bit. I'm not sure about the others.
But, I think Johnny Depp for Abe! I know I just jumped a few books, lol.

Emma i don't really know about rose.
i think lissa could be claire holt, but i'm not super sure.
adrian should look exactly like damon in the vampire diaries, but with a more oval shaped face.
ben barnes is exactly how i pictured dimitri, and i'd never even seen a picture of him before! he is perfect!
actually, johnny depp for abe wouldn't be that bad...
who do you guys want for christian, mason, eddie, etc.?

Brittany | 11 comments Would love if ian somerhalder played Adrian lol. Some people want Nina Dobrev as Rose...I just can't see her playing a bad ass chick lol.

Nah, Nina Dobrev would make a horrible Rose. She's too soft/weak-looking.

Yeah, I agree, Claire Holt as Lissa would be pretty good. :)


message 7: by ♥ Becky 22 (new)

♥ Becky  22  (becky22) | 19 comments And I kind of doubt they'd cast Ian Somerhalder as another vampire in a different movie. :)


message 8: by Emma (new)

Emma they shouldn't cast ian somerhalder because everyone already sees him as damon.
nina dobrev should NOT be rose.
i think drew roy should play eddie.


message 9: by Fatima (new)

Fatima I'm super excited for the movie!! I think Chris Massoglia should probably play Christian!! He has this badass look about him. As for Dimitri i nominate Steven Strait, but i don't know many others who could play the role. I think Elle Fanning or Anna Sophia Robb are great for the role of Lissa!!


message 10: by Emma (new)

Emma wow, those are all really good actors/actresses to play the characters! :)


message 11: by Fatima (new)

Fatima Thanks!!! I really hope they start on the movie soon:D I'm eager to know who they're gonna cast!


message 12: by Emma (new)

Emma me too!!!! we have to post here who was cast as soon as we know!


message 13: by Bexxy (new)

Bexxy (Desperately Seeking HEA's Blog) (desperatelyseekingheas) OMG so this is actually official??! I LOVE this series and I've been dying for this to happen!!

I like the ideas for Pheobe Tonkin to play Rose! I loved her is The Secret Circle.

I wish Adrian was in the first book.... Lol I'm a sucker for a hot tortured soul!!


message 14: by Emma (new)

Emma i know! i can't believe it's finally happening!!!!!!!!!!!
everyone loves the "hot tortured soul" guys. i know i do! :P


message 15: by Marwa (new)

Marwa (starborn) | 2 comments OMG I cant wait to see the movie!
I want Pheobe Tonkin to be Rose, and Johnny Depp would be Abe. They would be perfect for the role. ♥
I'm not sure about Dimitri or Adrian, but I think Clarie Holt will be good for Lisa's part but I'm not so sure.


message 16: by Jamie (new)

Jamie | 25 comments who i think should be Dimitri: a collision of Taylor Kitsch and Ben Barnes. TK's ruggedness and warrior likeness and BB's calm suaveness (if those are real words)


message 17: by Mehray (new)

Mehray | 27 comments Ginny Gardner for Lissa Dragomir. She's my perfect Lissa <3
As for Rose, Phoebe Tonkin
And Ben Barnes for Dimitri
Oh and Chace Crawford for Adrian.
Not sure about the rest though. What do you guys think ?


message 18: by Beatrice (new)

Beatrice Masaluñga (beatricemasalunga) I pictured Ben Barnes as Dimitri too! I heard that he will not play as Dimitri.

Rose- Phoebe Tonkin/Lyndsy Fonseca
Lissa- Claire Holt


message 19: by Mehray (new)

Mehray | 27 comments Ben Barnes won't play as Dimitri ? Why not ? ): I've always pictured him as my Dimka >.<


message 20: by Beatrice (new)

Beatrice Masaluñga (beatricemasalunga) ^ he didn't accept the role. (That's what I heard)


message 21: by Mehray (new)

Mehray | 27 comments Omg really ? I hope that's not true... Guess we'll find out though when they give us more info about the casting.


message 22: by Beatrice (new)

Beatrice Masaluñga (beatricemasalunga) I hope it's not because he definitely looks like Dimitri.

Chace Crawford definitely :D


message 24: by Mehray (new)

Mehray | 27 comments Haha glad that someone agrees with me (: he'd be a pretty awesome Adrian !


message 25: by Emma (new)

Emma he would be perfect for adrian!


message 26: by Haley (new)

Haley | 8 comments I am soooooooooooo excited for the movie!!! I think Phoebe Tonkin is a great Rose!!!! I imagined Ben Barnes as Dimitri (yes he does need to bulk up a bit, but otherwise he's prefect cause he can even do a Russian accent!!) as for Lissa the only reason I don't think it should be Claire Holt is because I pictured her more as Sydney. Johnny Depp is the perfect Abe since he always plays weird characters and is an awesome actor :) CHASE CRAWFORD as Adrian is the best idea I've heard in a loooonnng time! I think Ian Sommerhalder is a bit to old for Adrian and I just never pictured him as Adrian. As for the others I have no idea :P

Chace Crawford for Adrian all the way :D people suggest Ian Somerhalder cause they look kinda alike, but not that much. But I love em both though in my own ways :D <3


message 28: by Ally (new)

Ally  Cakes (allycakes4) Oh wow now I have to push these books up from my tbr list. I love to see the outcome of movies from books.


message 29: by Mehray (new)

Mehray | 27 comments I've heard of people saying Ian Somerhalder should play Adrian too but yeah he's a bit too old and not really how I pictured Adrian to be. Chace Crawford on the other hand would be perfect for Adrian (: I think he can totally pull off his character. And I agree with Haley, to me Claire Holt is more like Sydney than Lissa.

Definitely Clair Holt for Sydney cause I think Sydney has like a neutral or pissed off face. Ahaha yup :)


message 31: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 11 comments Phoebe Tonkin would be good as Rose in looks, but I don't think I could ever get over Tonkins voice! I mean have you ever really paid attention to the way she sounds? The pitch or tone/whatever, the way she sounds would just throw Rose's character off.


message 32: by Jamie (new)

Jamie | 25 comments she's australian but she can do an american one :D


message 33: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 11 comments No, not her accent its literally the sound of her voice, the pitch it's just to high and sounds weird lol, but that's just me.


message 34: by Diana (new)

Diana Prince (dianaprincereviews) | 6 comments I'm on the fence about Phoebe as Rose (I remember watching her on H2O, I don't know if she would be able to pull off Rose) but I would like to nominate India Eisley for Mia. India with blonde hair. She's like 19 but has that face that looks far younger, and can pull off an attitude, both things that are pretty important for Mia's character.
I really dislike how some people want women in their 30's to play Rose; she's like 18, there's an obvious difference.


message 35: by Amanda (last edited Jan 09, 2013 04:48PM) (new)

Amanda (tindakins29) | 28 comments Phoebe would not be a good Rose!!! She does not have the right edge. The movies would be ruined with her as rose. No!
I do however agree Ben Barnes would make one hell of a Dimitri.


message 36: by Haley (new)

Haley | 8 comments To me the person who most looks like Rose is Odette Yustman, i don't know about her acting though I've never seen any of her movies

i meant accent


message 38: by Jana (new)

Jana | 7 comments I dont think anyone will ever be Rose the way I want her to be.


message 39: by Megha (new)

Megha | 143 comments OMG! Yes!! Phoebe Tonkin for Rose. Not sure for Dimitri... Amanda Seyfried could have been Lissa if she was younger. Claire Holt's too well known from vampire diaries

Ugh I wish Adrian was in the first book


message 40: by Molly (new)

Molly (molly123) | 3 comments I think Phoebe Tonkin would be an amazing rose, and I always imagined Dimitri as Ben Barnes...


message 41: by Megha (last edited Jan 30, 2013 07:54PM) (new)

Megha | 143 comments whoop whoop someone agrees with me. I guess ben barnes would be ok but he is a bit skinny for dimitri


message 42: by Megha (new)

Megha | 143 comments OMG!!!! They have the cast chosen for Rose, Lissa, Dimitri!!


message 43: by Jamie (new)

Jamie | 25 comments MORE HAPPINESS EXPLOSION <33333333 GOIN CRAZYYYYYY


message 44: by Emma (new)

Emma who did they cast?!


message 46: by T.J. (new)

T.J. | 65 comments I haven't read the books. Are they good?


message 47: by Emma (new)

Emma yes, the books are AMAZING! you should put them on the top of your to-read list. :D


message 48: by Renee (last edited Feb 02, 2013 05:45PM) (new)

Renee We have a cast!




message 49: by Renee (new)

Renee Lcy Fry as Lissa, Zoey Deutch as Rose and Danila Kozlovski as Dimitri!


YourFriendlyNeighborhoodSpidey I don't think the dude is right for Dimitri. He just... he doesn't have the Dimitri-ness, you know?
