Delirium Fandom Fancasting Index: Alex Sheathes Part 3

 

Asher Book (by popular request… and it’s his birthday!)

About: 24-year-old american actor born in Virginia. Went to school in New York at the Professional Performing Arts School. He’s been acting since he was a kid.

Pros:

-A rather diverse portfolio, including a single-episode voiceacting job in Dora The Explorer.

-Certainly looks the part of Alex, which probably has to do with the fact that he’s a favorite fancast.

-Has done quite a bit of stage acting

Cons:

– Relatively new to the Hollywood scene

-I honestly can’t find many. Here ends my list of cons.

 

We’ve been getting a couple requests for him, so what do you guys think?

Delirium Fandom’s Fancasting Index: Grace Tiddle Part 2

 


Danielle Parker

About: Best known for playing Emma Lavery On All My Children.

Pros:
Danielle has been working steadily for years and has a recurring role on the popular soap opera All My Children which gives her experience.

She’s a very talented young actress. In 2012 she was nominated for two Young Artist Awards for her work on All My Children (which she won) and CSI: Miami. She was also nominated in 2011.

Cons:
She might be too old to play Grace. She is already 10 years old, though she does look younger. Whether or not she could pass as 6-7 year old by the time filming begins is still a mystery.

Douglas Booth

About: UK born actor who has worked on a number of miniseries and Shakespeare-related work (he’s played Romeo before!) He is also a model.

Pros:

– Perfect age-group for Alex

– Relatively unknown

Cons:

– He is known for a role in a bad Miley Cyrus movie. This can probably be forgiven considering the amount of Shakespeare he’s done.

-British accent. I haven’t heard his American accent, but this is a concern. Any thoughts on this?

 

I think he’d look great as Alex, but what do you guys think? Has anyone seen his work?

Caitlin Carmichael

About: Best known for playing Jenny McCarthy’s daughter in the Webisode In the Motherhood. She has also appeared on a number of TV shows and commercials.

Pros:

-She is currently in the right age range at 8 years old, but could easily pass for the 6 year old Grace now.

-She’s talented. She’s been nominated for the Annual Young Artist Award for two consecutive years (2011 and 2012).

-She has a solid resume for someone so young. She’s been acting since she was 3 and has appeared in many television shows, movies commercials in that time.

Cons:

-Will she look too old to play Grace once filming begins? Hard to say, but I think she is a capable actress who would do Grace justice!

Nikki Hahn (Sofia)

About: Best known for playing Tom Hanks’ daughter on a Jimmy Kimmel Live Skit, where she’s made multiple appearances.  She’s also appeared in commercials, films and a number of TV shows.

Pros:

-Like Caitlin, she is currently in the right age range, though a little older at 9.

– She’s been acting most of her life. She started acting when she was 3 and has had steady work for the past few years.

Cons:

-She doesn’t have as much as experience as some other young actresses out there, but this really shouldn’t hold her back from making a great Grace!

-She also might not look young enough to portray a six year old when filming commences, but we won’t know until the time comes.

Daniel Sharman

About: A British film and theatre actor who has had roles in  Teen Wolf as Isaac Lahey, Immortals as Ares, and the upcoming sequel film The Collection. He’s been a rather popular fancast for Alex.

Pros:

– He’s acted in a few Shakespearean plays. His recitation of poetry would probably be fantastic.

– Lack of involvement with other YA film adaptations.

– Aside from his role in Teen Wolf, he’s still rather unknown.

Cons:

– Interference with filming of Teen Wolf, as well as a few other upcoming projects.

– He’s 26, which might be a bit old for portraying Alex. But this is probably a non-issue.

Delrium Fandom’s Fancasting Index

Hello, Delirium-fanatics! Today here at Delirium Fandom we are excited to announce a new project we are rolling out over the next month or so: the Delirium Fandom’s Fancasting Index! Many fans have recently been inspired by the upcoming film adaptation of one of our favorite books, Delirium by Lauren Oliver, and they have been “fancasting” or “dreamcasting” many actors and actresses for the roles of Lena, Alex, Hana, and Grace. We’re so excited by the movie and the fan participation here at Delirium Fandom that we decided to compile all of your fancasting favorites for roles in Delirium and post them here on our site.

How will this work? Every other day, we will post two to three actors/actresses that have been fancasted for a particular character in the Delirium franchise. Today, in the next post, we will take a look at three highly desired actresses for the role of Lena. Then, on Sunday, we’ll look at a few actors for Alex, and then for Hana on Tuesday, and so on.

So, keep an eye on this site for profiles, pros, and cons of all of your Delirium fancasting favorites! Keep the love and spread the deliria!

Delirium Fandom’s Fancasting Index: Lena Haloway Part 1

Lily Collins

About: Love her or hate her, Lily Collins has drawn a lot of attention in the past year, especially in the fancasting realm. Collins came to the world stage this year with her role as Snow White in “Mirror, Mirror”. Since then she has been cast in a number of high-profile roles, including in the much-anticipated film adaptation of “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” as Clary Fray.

Pros:
– She would draw a lot of attention from YA fans to the Delirium franchise.
– There would be significantly more press for the Delirium movie if an up-and-coming actress like Collins were to be cast.
– She would appease a lot of Delirium fans, as she has been a fancasting favorite for the role.

Cons:
– She is already cast as Clary in TMI and would not likely accept another YA role so soon.
– She has been fancasted for just about every YA novel-turned-movie and if she was cast as Lena, a lot of other fandoms might be upset.

Naomi Scott

About: Naomi Scott is a lesser-known young actress who has gained some attention for her roles in the US Disney Channel movie “Lemonade Mouth” and in the UK mini-series “Terra Nova”.

Pros:
– An anticipated role as Lena would put Scott on the map for future teenage movie roles, which would increase interest in the Delirium franchise.
– She fits the bill for Lena as a short, brown-haired teenager with understated beauty.

Cons:
– Scott does not have as extensive acting experience as some of the other fancasts for the role.
– Casting directors may not be interested in choosing Scott due to her limited resume.

Emma Watson

About: Emma Watson is internationally known and recognized for her eight-movie part in the Harry Potter films as Hermione Granger. She will co-star in “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” debuting late September 2012.

Pros:
– Arguably the most well-known fancast on the list for Lena, Watson would bring considerable attention to the Delirium franchise.
– Watson has grown immensely as an actress since her first role in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. She has spend most of her life acting and possesses considerable talent.

Cons:
– Her American accent, as seen in previews of “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” could use some work.
– She would have to use a wig or grown out her currently pixie-cut hair.
– As such a well-known actress, Watson may decline the role for a movie of a lesser-known series as Delirium (compared to Harry Potter, that is.)
