The casting for the Beautiful Creatures film adaptation is underway, and several of the principles have been cast. What do you think of Hollywood’s choices, all?
– Jack O’Connell as Ethan Wate –

… Shirtless Jack O’Connell… just ‘cuz …

– Alice Englert as Lena Duchannes –

… Which means it will look something like this …

– Jeremy Irons as Macon Ravenwood !!! –

– Viola Davis as Amma –

– Emma Thompson as Mrs. Lincoln/Sarafine –

– Emmy Rossum as Ridley Duchannes –
There’s a number of people cast here (most of whom I don’t remember or who are peripheral characters)… No Link yet… I’m curious to see who they will get for him. I’m iffy on Viola Davis, but only because I pictured Amma to be older than she actually is. I think she will carry it. I’m less sold on Emmy Rossum, not because I don’t like her but because she is so NOT what I pictured as Ridley… wasn’t she supposed to be blonde or am I making that up because I pictured a young Traci Lords as her when I read the book?
Jack and Alice look the parts. I hope they can pull them off.
… heart Jeremy Irons, especially because they can’t get a young Richard Anderson from this movie – who is exactly what I pictured when I first read these books… but alas, he’s very old, so Jeremy will have to do. *winks*
It’s slated to come out in February, which means they need to start shooting soon. Wow.
I think this calls for a reread of the books… who’s joining me?

I have only read the first book so far so I really need to read the rest! But the casting seems pretty interesting and I can’t wait to see how it develops on the screen! 🙂
