For Mel Megan Fox was always who I pictured, Pet Taylor Momsen if she was smaller or Hayden P. for Jeb he's not really an actor but i forget his name but he was the last winner of Survivor, the seeker Leighton Meester ugh I can't remember the rest of my cast.

Just in case anyone was wondering, the Elisabeth that was talked about on the first few pages' name is Elisabeth Harnois. I agree; I think she would be a good Wanda, too.

EDIT: Here's another good picture of her: http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y282/opal_pixie/Harnois1_TH96042.jpg

Ooooo yum! Yeah. I could see that one.

The whole time I was reading The Host, I imagined James Marsden as Jared. He was the first actor that popped into my head for Jared. It

Ya know, I can't really see him as Jared. I see Jared as being more rugged. But I could definitely see him as an Ian. The eyes are stellar and he has that teasing playful quality and sensitivity that would be good for an Ian.

I chose Jensen Ackles for Ian! he is my Ian!! Him or Will Estes, but Jensen Ackles is my first choice!!
http://celebrity-pics.movieeye.com/cele ... 878704.jpg

I dunno. Wasn't he in Smallville? Never really thought much of him.

I read in an article that if there was going to be a Host movie that Stephenie pictured Matt Damon as Jared and Ben Afflek as Kyle and Casey Afflek as Ian

Thanks for that info. Yes. I could definitely see Casey as Ian!

Hayden Christensen as Ian....
http://keetsa.com/blog/wp-content/uploa ... tensen.jpg

UGGGH! No. I'm sorry. I'm a huge Star Wars fan. But Hayden really is kinda one to two dimensional as an actor. He does adolescent angsty well or problem young adult. He wouldn't be a good fit for Ian at all. Ian is too normal and stable.

Also, he looks a bit like Cillian Murphy from Batman Begins, who might make a good Ian

Meh. Too pretty in a creepy way. He'd make a good vampire, though.

Ian - Scott Porter

Not my first choice, but I could see him as Ian.

Ian - Henry Cavill allll the way!!

Yup. I could see that. He's got that rugged thing going but not so much as a Jared.

Out of those choices, I'd have to go with Ian Somerhalder definitely. That's about how I saw him in my head.

I don't like Stephenie Meyer's idea of having big-name actors being cast. I would like to see some entirely new people. I think seeing the same ol' stars playing the roles would ruin the movie for me because it would be a lot harder to imagine them as being the actual characters (Like "Oh, that's not Melanie. That's Angeline Jolie." I want it to be Melanie). I don't think Stephenie should doubt that some of the newer people might have just as much or more talent than others who have been in the business for awhile.

And Ian Somer-whatever for Ian is a big NO WAY. I don't think he's attractive at all and he's nothing like I imagined Ian. I like Steph's idea of Casey Affleck the most, and I wouldn't consider him a bigshot.... so he'll work. :D

Sorry, but that link will ask you to open the pic in Picture Manager. Press okay, I swear it doesn't contain any viruses.

While I was reading the book, I just couldnt think of Jeb as an old guy with white hair and all that, so I pictured Robert Sean Leonard (Dr. Wilson in House MD) or Hugh Laurie (Dr. House, from, well, House).

For Jared, I pictured Tom Welling.
Sorry, I found a perfect pic, but the maximum number of URLs is 5.

I couldnt find the perfect Jamie, but the closest could find is Haley Joel Osment when he was in the Sixth Element or Pay it Forward.

Also, sorry, but I forgot to quote it, someone said who they thought would be a good Wanda in her new body. The person said her name was Elisabeth. SHE'S PERFECT!!!

OMG, now that I think about it, Hugh Laurie would be the perfect Jeb! Genius!

Ack. No offense, but how anyone can imagine Jared as Tom Welling, Jamie as Haley Joel Osment, or Jeb as Hugh Laurie is beyond me XD.

Did anyone picture Nikki Reed as Melanie? For some reason, I did and I was just wondering what you guys thought.

I wish I could delete this since I posted the same thing twice.
