The Fault in Our Stars is one of my favourite books of all time and recently it has been brought to my attention that John Green’s book, The Fault in Our Stars, will be made a movie. And everyone has their dreamcastings (and many don’t make sense at all). I’ve noticed that a lot of people are choosing actresses that look nothing like Natalie Portman whatsoever (and that’s the only reason why I’ve disagreed so often) and then many people have seen Logan Lerman (whom I adore) as Augustus, but as much as I adore him, I can’t see him playing the charming character (I feel like a horrible person for saying this). So I decided to put together my own dreamcasting because why not?
For Hazel Grace, I see either:
Sami currently co-stars as Nicky Reagan-Boyle in the CBS series, Blue Bloods. Basing it entirely from looks, Sami Gayle is my number one choice. As I read the book, I pictured someone with chestnut/light brown hair and big eyes just like hers. She isn’t well-known, which for some reason I like. I feel like there will be less expectations since she relatively unknown (as I mean people can’t compare and can just watch her portray the character).
I have absolutely adored Emma Roberts ever since I first saw her on the Nickelodeon show, Unfabulous. From that show she continued on to do some pretty good movies like Hotel for Dogs, Aquamarine, and Nancy Drew, to name a few. I loved her in those movies, but I wouldn’t have chosen her for my dream Hazel if it had not been for The Art of Getting By (2011) where she starred opposite Freddie Highmore. Emma has proven to have the talent to play Hazel Grace and she could very easily have the looks as well.
As for Augustus:
Remember Robbie from Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging? Yeah, well, he’s grown a bit and now he’s gorgeous and has proven that he can act. I always pictured Augustus with soft, brunette waves that sat perfectly on his head, but I can settle for Aaron’s gorgeous curls, too. I honestly just think he’s perfect for Augustus.
I have literally spent at least ten minutes arguing with myself over whether he should play Augustus or not. My problem is, I love him 50% of the time, I hate 25% of the time and I really can’t decide how I feel about him the rest of the time. He’s most known for his role of Sebastian Smythe on Glee and even though his character was cruel and an ass most of the time, I think he has the potential. Besides, he’s not a bad actor.
For Isaac, I only have one candidate and that’s Evan Peters:
As a blonde, as a brunette – I don’t care. He’s Isaac through and through no matter what. He’s best known for his role of Tate Langdan/Kit Walker in the television show American Horror Story.
What do you think? These are only what I think and I’m curious how many other castings people have for this movie.
