The Buzz: The Host Movie Cast

At this point I'm sure nothing is set in stone, but it's still fun to browse the possible choices for the male leads in The Host by Stephenie Meyer. Variety came out with an article (here) on who's being considered...squeeee!

I have no idea if the article is credible, but it also mentions that Stephenie Meyer wants The Host to be the first book in a trilogy. When I read that, I immediately read it again...a trilogy? Wait, what? AWESOME! I hope it's true...

Write on Stephenie Meyer! In the meantime, at least I can be excited about the movie, because that is a sure thing.

If you've read my past posts, you know that Saoirse Ronan is to star as Melanie Stryder. She's a little more delicate than I imagined Melanie, but after seeing Jennifer Lawrence transform into Katniss for The Hunger Games, I'm hoping she'll transform into her character just as easily.

As for the boys....drum roll please....

According to the Variety article: 

Liam Hemsworth ("The Hunger Games"), Kit Harington ("Game of Thrones"), Jai Courtney ("One Shot") and Max Irons ("Red Riding Hood") will test for the role of Jared, Melanie's boyfriend. 

Who do you think makes the best Jared? ...I'm going with Liam or Jai. It's hard to choose.

Dane DeHaan ("In Treatment"), Thomas McDonnell ("Prom"), Augustus Prew ("The Borgias") and Ronan's "Lovely Bones" co-star Jake Abel will test for the role of Ian, who brutalizes Wanderer before falling in love with her.

Who do you think makes the best Ian? ...I'm 100% for Thomas (super cute).

 It's just for fun, but who do you vote for?


  1. I can't even vote because Im so excited over the prospect of seeing The Host on the big screen. It's a favorite of mine!

  2. Kit Harrington and Jake Abel! Ooh, I can't wait to see this come alive!

  3. Ooh, I didn't know they were making a movie of The Host!
    Saoirse Ronan isn't at all how I imagined Melanie... Hmm. But actors can "transform" to fill their roles.
    I think I'd vote for... Liam as Jared and... actually Jake Abel looks very similar to how I imagined Ian. Interesting.

  4. I'm ashamed to say, that I read the Host, and remember loving it.. but now can't really remember much? something is not right, LOL
    I'm going to have to go back and reread it for sure..

    also, I saw that the sequel to it is coming out 2012 and it's called The Soul!

  5. Honestly, I just want to see the movie :) Loved the book, but I think it might be time to do some re-reading. I certainly hope she makes it into a trilogy!!
