In interviews, I get asked a lot who would I like to see play the characters in a film adaptation. I make a pretty good list, but whenever it comes to Jack, I draw a blank. Nobody ever feels quite right to me.

So do you guys have any suggestions for Jack? (Or any other character, for that matter.)

Martin Sharlow | 1 comments I still think Andy Gibb. The good new's is he's dead, so being a vampire can't be that hard. =) You could use a look a like and let someone have the chance to make it big in their acting career.

How about Johnny Pacar as Jack?

R*and*R (randr) | 28 comments Lucas Grabeel as Milo?


message 6: by Jean (new)

Jean (jeandoe) Hey, R*and*R
I am not sure about Lucas Grabeel as Milo,
I am not trying to "bust your chops" but, I just don't see it...
let me ponder this actor for a little while longer and I will get back to you ; )

I agree with Amanda, Jack does seem like a difficult character to
cast, those pink chucks seem hard shoes to fill, the actor should
be medium height to tall, lean and dark, yet be in touch with his feminine side as well as masculine side with a side order of playfulness.. hummmm, that's difficult, who could it be?
The jury is still out.

Jean (jeandoe) p.s. I could see Kiowa Gordon playing Bobby.If you goto yahoo images and type in: "2010 MTV Movie Awards or goto this link, this is the picture that made me think of Bobby, I think it is the hair style.

R*and*R (randr) | 28 comments OK Jean, I was a bit iffy on Lucas.
How about Dan Benson as MILO?
He is a CUTIE.


message 9: by R*and*R (new)

R*and*R (randr) | 28 comments Or his brother Nick Benson.

I just wrote a blog saying who I'd cast in MBA, but I still haven't thought of anyone for Jack.

R*and*R (randr) | 28 comments I think Johnny Pacar he would be GREAT as Jack.
He could rock the pink, the playful and the SMOLDER.


message 18: by R*and*R (new)

R*and*R (randr) | 28 comments If you've had the time to see our suggestions I'd be happy to know what YOU think Amanda?


message 19: by Jean (new)

Jean (jeandoe) Emile Hirsch is h.O.t...
especially with facial hair.

Please don't laugh at me anyone,
I thought about Peter when I saw this guy... all they need to do is,tone the blond down.. just a little ; )

Joe Slaughter:

Jean (jeandoe) Jack
Okies, I have thought about what actor who could play *Jack* and I have narrowed it down to my favorite three, I list one today, tomorrow and Wednesday, maybe we could vote on it =)
Sam Witwer:

I think it's too hard to pick, haha! I do really like Johnny Pacar.I haven't watched Make It or Break It at all this season, but I did enjoy him on the show.

And Joe Slaughter definitely has the eyes for Peter.

But I agree. We should come up with a poll or something. This is much too hard to do alone, haha.


message 22: by R*and*R (new)

R*and*R (randr) | 28 comments Jean?
Sam Witwer?
Uhhhh....,
NO.
In the book he has blue-gray eyes that are both young and old, unruly hair, and isn't overly attractive.


:http://www.profilekiss.com/picture/co...


http://sharetv.org/person/johnny_pacar Johnny Pacar looks both boyish and old, has lovely unruly hair, great eyes and that certain impish humor, vampire-looking something.
I can REALLY see him as Jack.


message 23: by Jean (new)

Jean (jeandoe) Hey, I am just tossing ideas around
Actors change hair color and wear contacts all of the time..

And amanda had to admit it, it is something about Joe Slaughter's eyes...
Back to Jack now - How about

Tuesdays Pick for Jack

- Gabriel Macht

message 24: by Jean (new)

Jean (jeandoe) As far as Johnny Pacar, this is the only picture I can see 'Jack'
once Johnny Pacar takes his hat off...sighhh
I don't know, it is something about his eyebrow to forehead ration
=)
check out the pic

message 25: by Jean (new)

Jean (jeandoe) p.s.
when looking at Gabriel Macht's pic if you scroll all the way down to the 30th picture of him with the Hat(yeah, i know a bit tedious),
I see a little of Bruce Willis in him and I thought of Jack..

R*and*R (randr) | 28 comments He is ok looking. (his look screams stockbroker)
BUT.
He just looks his age to me, I don't see that boyishness that Amanda describes as Jack.
That picture U have of Johnny Pacar is not Jack.
I like this one better.

R*and*R (randr) | 28 comments His eyecolor is right, his hair is naturally unruly looking and he is gorgeous, in a non threatening way....


message 28: by Jean (new)

Jean (jeandoe) Wednesday's Actor for Jack
- Rick Malambri
http://www.imdb.com/media/rm199167232...
http://www.imdb.com/media/rm982810624...
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2463696/me...
He is no Johnny Pacar but Rick Malambri is nice to look at and I know he doesnt have the right eye coloring.

If we keep seeing the wrong guy for Jack,
doesn't that make it that much easier to see the Right one, right? =)

Monika MacFarlane | 4 comments I personally think Christian Cooke would be a pretty good Peter.

message 30: by Monika (new)

Monika MacFarlane | 4 comments I kind of like Melvil Poupaud for Peter as well...not the right eye color and he's older, but still :)

message 31: by Monika (new)

Monika MacFarlane | 4 comments I think James McAvoy would be a good Jack...I think he could really BE that character, but, not tall enough, wrong hair color, and too well known.


message 32: by Monika (new)

Monika MacFarlane | 4 comments Maybe a good Jack here, but probably too old:

message 33: by Jean (new)

Jean (jeandoe) I think Craig Robert Young has a real 'nice' look
I dont know if he would be a Jack but I could see him somewhere in the movie =)


message 34: by Jean (new)

Jean (jeandoe) ok, ok, ok I am casting my *Jack* vote
for Johnny Pacar, his eyebrows and those eyes speak ::Jack::
His look kind of grows on you the more you look at him..
plus I think he could rock the
"Real Men wear Pink" shirt =)

Christian Cooke is nice looking but, I think Tom Hughes would be a better choice to play Peter, he has more depth in his face.

R*and*R (randr) | 28 comments Tom Hughes

http://www.btvision.bt.com/showbiz-ne...

As far as James Mc-A-HOTTIE he looks like he'd be more suited to play Ezra. :)


message 38: by Jean (new)

Jean (jeandoe) Tom Hughes looks like he would be Good at playing a Bad AZ$ but he lacks that Self Punishing, that love hate going to kill u..
Peter look.
If not Emile Hirsch as Peter, then it should be someone who's
< Eyes > punch you when they look at you..

I agree with you Emile Hirsch IS Peter. Maybe Tom Hughes could be a lycan.

R*and*R (randr) | 28 comments I know THE PERFECT actress for Alice.

Danielle Panabaker
This link shows several photos of her if you scroll all the way down.


http://www.moejackson.com/category/da...

I LOVE Danielle Panabaker she is an incredible actress and she would be perfect as Alice. Plus, I think she would look believable as a love interest for both Johnny Pacar and Emile Hirsch.


message 42: by R*and*R (new)

R*and*R (randr) | 28 comments If Dan Benson played Milo looks like he could really be Danielle Panabaker's Brother if she were to play Alice.


message 43: by Jean (new)

Jean (jeandoe) What do you all think about
Tom Everett Scott as one of the actors in MBA?


message 44: by R*and*R (new)

I could see him as Leif.


message 45: by Jean (new)

Jean (jeandoe) Hey All, does anyone know how many books total are in the My Blood Aproves Series? Just Curious..


message 46: by Jean (new)

Jean (jeandoe) ~ Amanda ~
on amazon, you wrote that you were going to take a break from the My Blood Approves series after Wisdom, how long of a break will it be until the 5th book is out? Please don't make us wait indefinitely for the Story's Ending..


message 47: by Jean (new)

Jean (jeandoe) p.s...
what about this actor as Jack
David Julian Hirsh

He has a nice face, BUT, he does not have that boyishness, he LOOKS 37.
Johnny Pacar still has my vote.


message 49: by Jean (new)

Jean (jeandoe) This Actor has been in several movies
however I can see him playing a Vampire
Can anyone else see him being one, if so, which Character in MBA?
Chris Carmack

message 50: by Jean (new)

Jean (jeandoe) I am taking back.. My "Jack" Vote,
I think Topher Grace or Hayden Christensen
would make a better 'Jack' than Johnny Pacar...
anyone agree?
1.) Topher Grace

2.) Hayden Christensen
