Hey everyone! If this was a movie, then who would play who? Im just curious to see what everyone else thinks.
Here's my thoughts:

Wanda-Julia Roberts(I loved her voice in Charlottes Web)
Jamie- Dominic Scott Kay (as a youngerish Jamie!)
Melanie-Emily Browning(From A Series of Unfortunate Events and The Uninvited)
Ian-Chace Crawford(Gossip Girl)
Jared-Taylor Lautner(I dont know why, I just think he reminds me of Jared!)

Mellady77 Stibich | 47 comments Pet/Wanda - Saoirse Ronan. She's still a year or two too young but this is exactly as I pictured. http://imigliorimusicals.files.wordpr...
Jared - Scott Speedman.
Melanie - Alyssa Milano
Ian - Chris Evans.
Kyle - Ben Foster.
Jaime - Anton Yelchin. he's probably too old for this now but

Thanks! I thought really hard about who matched the pictures in my head.

message 5: by Cindy (new)

Cindy (cindypliego) I like most of your choices Mellady77, but Ian and Kyle are twins, so why two different guys? I prefer Chris Evans for them, but I guess Ben Foster would do a good guy(Ian)/bad guy(Kyle) well :)

Carly I want people who look the part I hate it when they look nothing like how they r discribes

message 7: by Mellady77 (new)

Mellady77 Stibich | 47 comments SPOILER ALERT

I just pictured them as more frat twins I guess especially after the first time I read about them playing soccer together. She described their looks so differently but how she could still see this and that in each others faces. The second time I read the book I still saw them that way. But I agree with the Ben Foster comment too.

Stellabella | 1 comments I wish it would be made into a movie, but it would also be strange to see the characters I've constructed in my head to come to life on screen.

message 9: by Carly (new)

Carly OMG I totally agree on taylor lautner being Jared

Meghan Marie Cullen (So-the-lion-fell-for-me) | 22 comments Mod
um......ok i mean whatever I kinda said chace crawford as Ian in my first post....but thnx and thnx yea taylor lautner was always pictured in my head!

Meghan Marie Cullen (So-the-lion-fell-for-me) | 22 comments Mod
well.....replying to Mellady77's thought on Alyssa Milano, she was born in 1972???? I think that a 37 year old is a bit pushing it for a teen.

message 16: by Carly (new)

Carly yea thats true

I pictured her as a teen Alyssa. They would need someone who could both play a teen in the first meeting with Jared as well as a twenty-something by the time Wanderer was implanted in Melanie.

I also know that Jared is in his twenties and is described with dirty blonde hair, blue eyes, and a tan so I do not think Taylor would fit that part.

Carly i knoe but taylors hot and i ptretty sure jared is supposed to be too

message 19: by [deleted user] (new)

ya. altho he isnt excactly rite.. hes extremely hot just like jared is.

message 20: by Carly (new)

Carly yea

message 21: by Tyler (new)

Tyler (tylernicole) | 5 comments i have to disagree with Dominic Scott Kay as Jamie. I think he would be more...lanky - when he's older that is. when he's younger, i think he would have shorter hair and still be on the skinny side.

Saoirse Ronan is not right at all for Pet i dont think. she's supposed to look 'angelic' . blonde flowing hair and all. big eyes and shy smile.....

Emily Browning is a pretty good choice for Melenie i think.... but so is Alyssa Milano.

Chace Crawford is probably like perfect for ian. Chris Evans is a good choice too but im not sure if it's as good.....and then kyle would have to be someone looking like him with a broken nose. lol i dont think Ben Foster would cut it

Scott Speedman is probably a better choise for jared than taylor launter, even though i love him ...

Anton Yelchin is a really good choice for Jamie i think, but like said idk if he could anymore :(

thats just my opinion so ... idk just ignore it i guess and shape your own.. :)

Mellady77 Stibich | 47 comments Stephanie Meyer wants Matt Damon:
Just a visual on my previous post for Stephanie Meyer's thougths:

Uncle Jeb/Robert Redford with a beard:

Jared/Matt Damon:

Kyle O'Shea/Ben Affleck & Ian O'Shea/Casey Affleck

message 23: by Carly (new)

Carly wow

Mellady77 Stibich | 47 comments With Stephanie's actors in mind I sort of recast my little dream team, keeping some of my favorites and not changing hers:

Melanie/Jennifer Garner (just because it's too funny AND it fits visually)
[image error]

Jami/Harry Treadway (He did City of Ember with Saoirse and resembles, in my opinion Jennifer.)

message 25: by Mellady77 (new)

Mellady77 Stibich | 47 comments I stand corrected:

Pet/"Wanda" Wanderer as Alyson Hannigan

message 30: by Gracia (new)

Gracia (buhbuhgracie) | 4 comments i like s.meyer's choice of actors and actresses, as posted by mellady777. i think this movie is ought to be played by matured actors. just a thought. ;)

message 31: by Stephanie (new)

Stephanie (stephaniex88) Here's my ideal cast:

Sophia Bush as Melanie.

Ian Somerhalder as Ian.

cillian Pictures, Images and Photos
Cillian Murphy as Kyle.

i love Jared Howe Pictures, Images and Photos
Jensen Ackles as Jared.

wanderer Pictures, Images and Photos
Elizabeth Harnois as Pet/Wanda.

sam elliott Pictures, Images and Photos
Sam Elliott as Uncle Jeb.

skandar Pictures, Images and Photos
Skandar Keynes as Jamie.

John Terry as Doc.

Personally, I think Matt Damon and the Affleck brothers are too old to play the roles of Jared, Kyle and Ian. They're awesome actors but I just can't imagine them being in the movie.

OMG I love those!!!!

message 33: by Cari (new)

Cari Walker I love those pics that stephanie chose. I also think that Matt Damon and the AFFleck Brothers are too old for the roles in the movie.

message 34: by Stevie (new)

Stevie | 3 comments these are perfect!!!!

message 35: by Stevie (new)

Stevie | 3 comments but im wondering why most of you are choosing characters in their 30s to play teenagers? Like Julia Roberts? seriously, and come on, Ben Afflack? no offense, but when i pictured them, i didn't see those to actors in my head

message 36: by [deleted user] (new)

i agree with stephanies apart from kyle

Mellady77 Stibich | 47 comments Kinda excited the person I chose as my dream cast for Wanda was actually chosen to act the part. Way to go SR!!

message 41: by Aeriale (new)

Mia Wasikowska as Melanie,
Amanda Seyfried as Wanda/Pet,
