Booking Through Thursday: Dream Cast

Booking Through Thursday

A meme from Booking Through Thursday.

Today’s topic is “And while we’re thinking about books converted to tv/movies. Do you ever sit and wonder who could be cast as your favorite characters? (Please feel free to give examples!)

What actors do you think have done particularly excellent jobs with some of your favorite characters?”

Okay… I used to LOATHE fan casting but since I started following FYTortall… (link specifically to the Tortall fancasts) I’ll admit I’m fascinated. Though I want to scream and rant and update wikis when the fan casts don’t make any sense… like everyone is young and hot and skinny! Even though age is always tough with this series, this tumblr has some great Tortall fancasts. Thinking about Tortall casts gives me sympathy for when they had to cast the Harry Potter movies.

Actresses I feel have done a really good job with characters I love:
Emma Watson as Hermione Granger from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, etc.
Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games, etc.
Asa Butterfield as Hugo Cabret from The Invention of Hugo Cabret

More good ones that I thought of while listing the bad ones (6/21/2013):
Helen Mirren as Elinor from Inkheart, etc.
Viggo Mortensen as Aragon from The Fellowship of the Ring, etc.
