Movie Cast Monday




I'm so thankful to Natalie from Mindful Musings on this one. Movie Mondays? I'm all over that.
For this Monday, I'm choosing Graceling by Kristin Cashore. And just go ahead and chuckle over the character's names, I know I did.

Katsa, the main character, is supposed to be beautiful, but deadly - her natural talent is killing. I think Ashley Green (Alice in Twilight) would be perfect for the part.


Prince Po was cunning, sweet and, when he needed to be, deadly. Ian Somerholder (Damon in Vampire Diaries) can do alluring and
confident with a soft side.





Prince Raffin, Katsa's cousin and best friend, is a healer in every sense of the wo
rd. He's caring, nurturing, smart, ambitious, and, of course, handsome. I think Zac Efron would be a good fit.


Princess Bitterblue (Snort out a laugh, it's alright) is Prince Po's cousin. She's frail and young, but strong and seen more than tragedy than most adults. Lara Robinson is adorable and could pull off being a princess.


King Leck. A charismatic mastermind. Nathan Fillion (Mal in Firefly and currently Rick Castle in TV's Castle) would be perfect to play the wonderful king. Why? Because everyone loves King Leck and everyone loves Nathan Fillion. Perfect match

Alright guys, what do you think? Are my picks spot
on? Or do you think I'm way off -- like I live on Pluto off?

I haven't read Graceling yet (though I've bought it and it's sitting in my TBR pile), but I love your picks! I'm not a huge fan of the Twilight movies, but I think Ashley Green is a great address, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE Ian Somerhalder! And Nathan Fillion's awesome as well. I loved Firefly! Why do they cancel all the good shows? Oh well...I'm leaving before I go on a rant. Thanks for joining in!

I said address...I meant actress...oops! It's late, I've been Christmas shopping all day. :)

I can totally picture those actors and YES to Nathan Fillion/Ashley Greene.I also love Ian too.

Well it is true, everyone loves Fillon so he is a great choice :)

Tina said...

Great picks......I always pictured Katsa kind of weird looking but beautiful, I think Green could pull it off with the makeup and contacts......Prince Po...H-O-T!!!

I haven't read this so I can't really say except to say I love your choice of Nathan. He's adorable.

PS Love the idea :)

Alexa said...

Way off on Katsa. But, I quite like your choice on everyone else. Although, Raffin is supposed to be a bit scrawny and awkward as well.

Pixie said...

I like your cast. Ashely is beautiful, so she has that part, but I think she would need to harden up to play Katsa. Ian as Po, Love it.

Natalie - Ashley Green probably has a nice address too. Hope your shopping went well. I know what you mean about the great shows. I loved Firefly and last season they got rid of Moonlight - oh, how I miss him as a vampire. Ian helps but...

Julie - Glad you think so too. Now if only we could get some financial backing!

Linda - I've loved him in anything he's done.

Tina - I agree!

Juju- so adorable!

Alexa - Ashley works because she is beautiful, graceful and deadly but I'm interested in what actress you would choose?

Pixie - I think I project more toughness into Ashley because in the Twilight books, while Alice looks pixie-ish (hey, that's a coincidence) and is graceful, she is also extremely lethal.
