Lindsey Lohan is perfect for Jade. However, I think all of the teenage characters should be unknowns. Hollywood is filled is fesh ultra-goodlooking waifish actors, and the audience can come into the film without any preconceived notions on the characters. I see Cate Blanchette or Paltrow for Hannah and Clooney for Dad. And for the nutty June bug Eva Peron? Definitely Annette Bening.
It's probably just me, but from the moment she described Hannah in Fat Kat Foods the image in my mind the rest of the book was Darryl Hannah. Possibly just for the fact that I imagined the suit she was wearing to be exactly like the one she wore in Kill Bill, but yeah, that's who I see.
Blue - Ellen Page Gareth - Gary Cole Hannah - Cate Blanchett (w/dark hair) Eva - Susan Sarandon Smoke - Larry Hagman Verduga - Javier Bardem Jade - Blake Lively Charles - Ryan Philippe Zach - Bradford Anderson Leulah - Liza Weil Milton - Milo Ventimiglia
I don't know....Hannah was supposed to be drop dead gorgeous and in her late 30's , early 40's. I always envisioned Catherine Zeta-Jones as Hannah. I think relative unknowns for the Bluebloods would be a good idea. I think Alexis Bledel would be better as Blue than Ellen Page but neither would be perfect. I'd like to see someone we've never seen before. Actually, now that I think about it, Carey Mulligan, would be a great choice. She played the second youngest sister, Kitty, in "Pride and Prejudice" (2004) with Keira Knightley. She's being touted as the next big thing. She's talented yet still a relative unknown.
Has anyone ever watched Desperate Housewives? Orson? I think Kyle MacLachlan would be the perfect Gareth van Meer. I pictured him throughout the entire book.
As for Blue, it's silly, but I felt that I identified with her so much that it will be hard for me to see another person in her role. I spent the entire book picturing myself in her shoes. But that ain't gonna happen. Obviously.
Maybe I am way off base, but I thought of Sharon Stone for Hannah. Yes, she is somewhat older, but she is beautiful (in an old Hollywood glamor-way), has a dark, intelligent voice (I think)....and I sense she could play a whack job quite well. Jennifer Connelly is not nutty enough in my view...
For the Dad, I was thinking Ralph Fiennes. Blue...I have no idea. Hopefully an unknown. Ellen Page would go all-Juno and ruin it for me.
The suggestion of Lindsey Lohan for Jade is hilarious! Totally agree...
