Rob -- Andrew Garfield

Lindsay -- Kristen Stewart

Elody -- Saoirse Ronan

Ally -- Nikki Reed

Juliet: Dakota Blue Richards

 

 

also; I think it'd be best if YA book-to-movie casts avoid anyone from Twilight; it's kinda overused, IMO

Re: Casting Call!

I'm absolutely horrible with actors/actresses, so I'm just going to leave it at I agree that Dakota Fanning would make a great Juliet.

Re: Casting Call!

Hmmmmmm.

I like:

Hayden Panettiere for Lindsay
Kirsten Dunst for Ally

 

Other than that, I'd say avoid the Twilight cast and those general Disney stars. Those actors and actresses would make this a very tween-focused movie, and I think the power in the book wouldn't really make it through with them. I like the idea of a cast with a few unknown actors and actresses and some more mature 20-somethings playing a few of the characters just to draw the audience while maintaining the novel's power.

Re: Casting Call!

Sam could be easily Nina Dobrev,

 

Rob versus Jensen Ackles (I know it, not so younger for the role, but I thought about him due to his role in Supernatural)

 

Ken could be Taylor Lautner or Ian Somerharder (for seeing him changing from his villanous role)

 

To Lindsay's role would be perfect Charisma Carpenter.

Re: Casting Call!

You guys, I totally see Juliet as Dakota Fanning.

I think that Kristen Stewart would be a good Lindsay. Also I totally see the girl from Juno as Sam.
