Lady Entropy What I love about Awoken (I haven't read the book yet, but I already am sure it's amazing and I'll love it) it's how it's totally different from all the rest of the YA wishy washy romance out there. There are real consequences coming from dating a guy like Riley (I mean, vampires really? You can kill them so easily), that's not bound by the laws of reality.

So, obviously, I wouldn't be surprised if, in a matter of months, this book got chosen for a movie adaptation (here's an idea, if you know someone in the movie industry, send them the link to the book and your support to see this turned into a movie).

Of course, the most important thing in a movie is which dreamy people would you choose to play Awoken's characters in the big screen?

I wonder if Tom Hiddleston has a younger brother....

Dan Stewart Anyone but Kristen Stewart for Andromeda! I mean, she's an amazing actor, but I don't want people to think "Awoken" is ripping off "Twilight" or something awful and stupid like that!!!

As for Riley, it should totally be Alex Pettyfer!

Lady Entropy Dan, I agree, I think Kristen is already typecast as Bella, also, she's now getting a bit too old to portray someone as young as Andi. She's a full grown woman.

It's the same reason I wouldn't choose Rob Pattison to be Riley. Plus, I think Pattison is a bit unprofessional, I mean, I read in an interview that he thought Edward was a moron, and thus he played him as one. While I'm sure he would be far more impressed with Riley than Edward (while Eddie is dreamy, he's just a vampire, an ex-human, while Riley has so much more depth and would be a total challenge because he's an Old One) I'm not entirely sure I'd want any actor who disses Twilight in any of my movies.

Bianca Nightshadow Yes to Alex Pettyfer!!!!!!! He was so hotttxxx in I Am Number 4,and Magic Mike(hehehe). He's only 23 so he could play high school. Aren't they going to cast him as Christian Grey, though? That role might define him too much and people would only see Christian and not believe him as Riley.

I can see someone like Lucy Hale from Pretty Little Liars or Sarah Hyland from Modern Family as the girl. Someone petite and dark who would look extra small next to Riley and emphasize how delicate and human she is. Or maybe Shailene Woodley, because she's in everything right now, and isn't too pretty. I hear she's a really good actress( she had better be, to portray Tris in Divergent!!!), and maybe by the time the movie gets made she will have grown back her hair she chopped off for the cancer movie.

Elizabeth They've just cast some Thor-looking guy as Christian Grey,I forget his name, but he's not Alex Pettyfer.

Shoshanna B I think India Eisley form Secret Life of the American Teenager would be a perfect Andi. She's pale, petite and soooo talented. She's who I picutred reading the book! Of if Kira Shipka from Mad Men was older, she could be really great. Riley is obvs the harder role to cast because he has to look perfect and be crazy talented. Josh Bowman maybe? Reading it I picutred young Ian Somerhalder. Cuz if that exists he's perfect!

Vik should be Avan Jogia. So hot!

Elizabeth Just Googled Avan Jogia. I'll be in my bunk.

I was considering who they might cast in the role of Vik, as the only "known" Indian actors are British and too old. This Canadian kid is definitely a contender though! The only problem might be that he is possibly TOO hot. Though that would explain why he becomes Ms. Epistola's "favorite student".

Violet Little I think Carly Chaikin would be wonderful as Andi if she changed hair colour and skin colour and eye colour a bit. It's just her phenomenally emotional acting that would be perfect for Andi. She's the blond girl here : .

Violet Little I would like Douglas Smith as Vik. I'm sure they can paint his skin or something of the sort.

That's an awesome idea!

Thank you ! I still don't know who could play Riley though. I think Alex Petyfer is too young for his role to portray all the maturity and beautiful alieniness.

Madeleine Shailene Woodley or Lily Collins. Or that girl Saoirse Ronan. Because they're like the only teen actresses in hollywood, right? and maybe for Vik like, a really tan Robert Sheehan, you know what I mean? And Karen Gillian for Bree, she's like the best redhead ever. I mean, like, she's the only redhead ever. And Riley can ONLY be played by Liam Hemsworth, or I will DIE.

Elizabeth Chloe Grace Moretz could be an interesting choice as well.

Violet Little You guys I think I just found the perfect Riley. His name is Jamie Olias and he is PERFECT :

PS : Sorry Elizabeth Chloe Grace Moretz would be perfect now that she isn't blonde.

Violet Little Here would be my ideal casting with up-and-coming internet actors who I think might accept the role. Please tell me what you think. You guys I am so excited !

Laina as Andi :
- See her character here :
- And here :
- See her transition to her real persona after the first 18 seconds here :

Violet Little Jordan Taylor as Riley:
- See his Batman voice that would be perfect when he sings in dreams and changes back to Cthulhu :
- See his normal acting (he's being sarcastic) :
- See his normal self (not much of a difference) here :

Violet Little Mary Kate Wiles as Bree :
- As Anne Of Green Gables :
- As a crazy jerkass woobie thespian Valley Girl (modernized Lydia Bennet) :
- As a snarky teenager :

Violet Little I know that Bree is supposed to be fat but I think that Mary Kate Wiles would totally be the sort of actress that can put on weight for a part and lose it for the next.
