Being a form of a cinematic-nerdfighter, while reading "Looking For Alaska" I continuously pictured different actors for certain characters of the novel, and so I was wondering...
...if "Looking for Alaska" was transposed into a film, and, for some reason (maybe because you're terminally ill, or maybe because you have the ability to scream a sonic boom, or maybe because you're just amazingly awesome), YOU were hired as the casing director; how would YOU cast the film?
Here's how I would do it:
The Colonel...Samm Levine
Takumi...KevJumba (ok, I know that's sooo lame of me to say, but tell me you didn't think of him at all?!?!)
Lara...(a younger) Amanda Seyfried
Of course, it's too hard (for me at least) to picture an existing person as Alaska, considering few people can personify the enchantment and interest as she did in the book.
I WANT TO HEAR WHAT YOU THINK!
PS< Sorry Mr. John Green. I know some authors hate when people do this, but Curiousity took hold of me and dragged me to the computer.
