Casting Call: Actors We Want To Star In Our Favorite Book Adaptations

TFIOS, Divergent, and The Hunger Games have all made it to the big screen, but so many novels are still awaiting adaptation. If the film execs need help casting, we have some ideas!

1. Just Like the Movies by Kelly Fiore

Disney Star, Laura Marano, has the look of the "over-achieving nerd-girl" who is looking for guy of her dreams. She's a dead ringer for the main character Lily!

2. Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli

Leo Borlock is a awkward teenage boy in the young adults book Stargirl. Craig Roberts has the perfect awkwardness to him that will portray Leo's small town quirk.

3. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

Of course we'd choose Emma Roberts! She plays a "damaged" girl in We're the Millers, "Privileged" in the popular TV program American Horror Story and beautiful in real life. She'd be the perfect Cadence!

5. I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak

Andrew Garfield would be a great Ed Kennedy because of his ability to channel and deliver all the wit and sarcasm Ed has to offer. Plus, he's Spiderman and that makes him unquestionably awesome!

6. House of Glass by Sophie Littlefield

Jen Glass should be portrayed by someone with a motherly instinct., someone with an ability to portray the pivotal hostage scene that defines Jen's parental and spousal instincts. Sandra Bullock would be the ideal actress for the job!

7. Looking for Alaska by John Green

No one can stop talking about The Fault in Our Stars adaptation, and us Green-fans are wanting more! Next on our wish list is Looking For Alaska and we have the perfect actor to star in it: Kodi Smit-McPhee. He's gawky, soft on the eyes, and would make a great Miles "Pudge" Halter.
