I know I’ve shared my various desired actresses/actors for Something Strange & Deadly, the Movie (coming to a theater near you in the summer of never), but I’m not sure I’ve ever shared my ideal movie cast on my website.
So, as part of the Something Strange & Deadly Book Club, I thought I’d lay out all the faces I see in my one day award-winning film.
Something Strange & Deadly, the Movie
Played by Rachel Hurd-Wood. When she has blond hair, of course. But seriously, I love the way this actress can look so feminine and yet so feisty.
Played by the swoony Ben Barnes because he’s swoony. And intense. Also, can we discuss how this screencap below could easily have been taken from Something Strange & Deadly, the Movie?
Played by Emma Roberts. She’s just so pretty (I love her with dark hair) and I think she could totally be a match for Ben Barnes’s sister, no?
Played by Max Irons. Seriously, this guy is the perfect Daniel. If only he had an American accent….but still, I think he has the perfect looks, perfect arrogant smile, and perfect intensity for Daniel.
Played by Tang Wei. I used to say Jessica Lu (who I still think is awesome, btw), but I recently saw Tang Wei and just loved her. She’s just got the right smirk–and the right arch in her eyebrow.
Played by Anthony Mackie. First off, I think this actor is gorgeous–so that works well since Joseph is supposed to be handsome. I also think he has the right quiet presence that Joseph has. And again, ungh. He’s so beautiful.
Played by Nicholas Hoult. So, I realize Hoult is all swoony now, but I have adored this actor since About a Boy (which is one of my all time favorite movies. Ever.). I think young Hoult is the perfect little bullied Elijah…
And present day Hoult is a fabulous older Elijah. I also think Hoult is such a brilliant actor he could convincingly play Elijah’s warped sense of self…
And there you have it! The line-up for Something Strange & Deadly, the Movie (coming to a theater near you in my wildest dreams). Who do YOU see playing the various characters?
