If you aren't already aware, Stephenie Meyer's (author of the Twilight series) book The Host is being adapted into a movie. I've had the book sitting on my shelf since the very first day it released in 2008 and I've yet to read it, but I've heard amazing things about it. It's a very long, thick book and I've been waiting for my reading schedule to die down before I dive into it (which, knowing me, would be a few more years) but after the casting news that was announced today, I plan to read as soon as possible.
Playing Melanie/Wanderer: Saoirse Ronan
Playing Jared: Max Irons (OMG MY FAVORITE ACTOR EVARRRR)
And playing Ian: Jake Abel
I love this cast. Especially Max Irons (if you know me, you know I've had an unhealthy obsession with him for yearsss) I've seen several movies with each of them and I know they're fantastic actors. I need to finally get around to reading this!
If you've read The Host, what do you think of this cast? Yay/nay? Thoughts?
