Meghan Fox would be good for Wanda. I always picture her with black hair. Does SM mention that in the book?

Omygod, YES!!!

Melanie/Wanda was BLONDE--It says so somewhere in the book, i don't remember where exactly, but I remember being shocked becasue I so thought she was a brunette too!!

She (Mel,) just seems spunkier than Blonde hair can convey! lol.

Now Wanda in Pet's body, THERES a blondie. lol. I definately see Gemma Ward. Except, you know, younger. lol.

It's interesting though, that Lilly Cole has been suggested for Pet/Wanda as well. Because Gemma and Lilly are models most famous for their "Elfish" looks, and I kinda see Pet as having that defined delicate bone structure that the elfish sort of models have. lol. Like Jessica Stam. Only not ginga. lol.

Just a question: Does SM ever give a racial classification for the characters? I've only read it once, but everyone is picking white people. Anyway I think Lucy Lu or Kelly Hu (Deathstrike in X2) would be amazing as Melanie. They both can totally pull off the tough part of Melanie's personality. I couldnt find a good pic of Lucy Lu, but here is Kelly Hu as Deathstrike

her eyes almost look like Wanda is in there

I also think Sanaa Lathan (Love and Basketball) could pull off Melanie.

I cant think of anyone for Jared right now. For some reason when I tried just now, all I could of was Dwight Johnson (The Rock) But for Ian I like the idea of Justin Bartha. In some of his other movies (Failure to Launch and National Treasure) he has this great sarcastic wit. Think that same tenor would be exellent for Ian

Oh I love Justin Barhtha and his sarcastic wit!
As far as racial classification, the only thing I can think of is that Ian is described as being pale and that Jared and Melanie are described as being naturally tan.

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

no....sorry i'm 100% sure that Mel is a brunette if not very dark haired girl- i read the book twice and specifically remember the reference to her as a "dark haired olive skinned girl".

No offense to anyone that said Megan Fox would be a good Melanie, but SERIOUSLY?!?!?!?!?!? I cant IMAGINE her as Melanie... Its just, just.... NO!!!!!!!

I, personally, thought of a younger Natalie Portman as Melanie. Here´s a pic (the closest I could find):
http://files.nireblog.com/blogs/webnove ... ortman.bmp

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 (House, from, well, House).
I'd post pics, but the limit of links allowed is 5 :cry:

I FOUND THE PERFECT IAN!!!!! Hes nothing like I pictured Kyle, but in my mind, they dont really look all that alike. Sorry. Its Adam Gregory, from 90210 (He´s Ty... is he hot or what?)
http://www.denimblog.com/wp-content/upl ... -jeans.jpg

For Jared, I pictured a mix betweenTom Welling, Jensen Ackles, and Josh Henderson (He appeared on 90210 once.).

I think a great Wanda/Pet could be Alexis Bledel, only blonde, or maybe Taylor Momsen.

Someone that I think would be a perfect Sunny is Michelle Tratchenberg. She's just like I imagined her.

Umm no Melanie was a brunette.

"Her long dark hair was secured beneath a surgical cap exposing her slender neck."

And blondes (myself included) can be very spunky lol!

For Melianie I kind of agree with all of you. Megan Fox is really good.

i pictured melanie as jessica biel....average height, olive skinned, dark hair, athletic and rugged but beautiful, mature....
i agree, james marsden would be perfect for ian...although i pictured him a little more beefy than james marsden....
willie nelson for jeb?! perfect! but i also saw him as the old gravedigger guy that plays in Ghost Rider...the guy that turns out to be the old Rider....

I totally agree with you guys about Megan Fox as Melanie. She seems perfect.

Ian is the ONE character that just has to look perfect if they are going to cast him for a movie. Honestly, I don't think there is anyone perfect enough in the world to play Ian. (Or Edward for that matter, even though I think Rob Pattinson is a good choice.) Ian just has to have blue eyes and is very muscular. (I remember it being in The Host that Ian is buff, right?)

Love,
