#T5W TOP 5 WEDNESDAY: Favorite Fancasts



Hey guys! This is a new feature I joined from Goodreads' Top 5 Wednesdays, a weekly book group about our top five favorite things in the middle of the week.

Created by Lainey from GingerReadsLainey and now hosted by Samantha from ThoughtsonTomes, this week's entry describes the top 5 favorite fancasts in media adaptations of books. I'm not very good as casting movie actors because I usually pay attention to castings when the movies are being made already. Popular actors from movies have been done already, so I'll just create some of my own. 

September 20th: Favorite Fancasts
--Discuss your preferred fancasts for some of your favorite characters. (Fancasts means actors you'd like to play your favorite characters or imagine your favorite characters as)


5. Alexis Bledel as Bella Swan in Twilight - Before the movie was first in pre-production and Kristen Stewart completely dominated as Bella, I remember there were so many fanmade videos of Gilmore Girls star Alexis Bledel as the shy, beautiful bookworm. And at the time, it fit because both Bella and Alexis are huge classical book fans, simple, shy, pretty normal girls. Even though I loved Kristen as Bella, it would have been interesting to see how Alexis would have handled the part too. 


4. Ashley Benson as Nora in Hush Hush - I remember Nora being this feisty redhead, and I think Ashley would have done a good job as her. Seeing as that she was feisty and funny as Hanna in Pretty Little Liars, it could work out alright. 


3. Katherine McNamara as Josie in Anomaly - Another fiery redheaded actress playing a feisty redheaded character. Tonya Kuper, the author of the book, actually used Katherine as a muse for Josie, so if she were cast in the movie or TV version, Tonya would freak TF out!! I know I would! Also, she already has the red hair because of Shadowhunters, so there would be nothing to worry about. 😉


2. Alex Pettyfer as Jace in Mortal Instruments/Shadowhunters - Remember when almost all of the Mortal Instruments fans were ecstatic to hear about Alex Pettyfer maybe becoming Jace in the first TMI movie? Yeah, that never happened... But I remember everybody and their mama wanted Alex to be Jace. But then, he'd said that he didn't want to do anymore teen YA movies anymore after I Am Number Four flopped (but then he did cheesy, sexy, stripper movie called Magic Mike, so which is it that you want, boy?) so that chance never happened. But I wonder how it would be if Alex was Jace and not Jamie Campbell Bower, or even Dominic Sherwood (from the TV show). 


1. Harry Shum Jr. as Prince Kai in Cinder - I really only know Harry in Glee and Shadowhunters, and while his acting is known for being fabulous, goofy, and joyous, he actually has more dramatic range. So I think he'd be a good serious Kai if Cinder were a show or movie.
