Which Book-To-Movie Castings Were Actually Perfect?

Tell us!

If you're like me, then every time you read a book you're already casting the award-winning movie adaptation in your head.

Warner Bros.

And then sometimes when the book actually gets turned into a movie, the casting choices are even better than you originally imagined!

NBC

Like, maybe you firmly believe that no other actor on Earth could ever play Effie Trinket as authentically as Elizabeth Banks.

Lionsgate

Or maybe you still can't get over how Alan Rickman's Severus Snape practically walked out of the books and onto the movie screen.

Warner Bros.

Perhaps Jordan Fisher's portrayal of John Ambrose McClaren in To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You wasn't exaaaaactly what you imagined, but SO. MUCH. BETTER.

Netflix

Or heck, maybe you hated Amy March when you read Little Women, but Florence Pugh's portrayal made you fall head over heels in love.

Sony Pictures Releasing

Whoever it is, we wanna know! Tell us which book-to-movie castings are absolutely perfect and why. The best responses will be included in a BuzzFeed Community post.
