Authors are Rockstars Tour - Casting Unraveling with Elizabeth Norris & Giveaway!!

I am so ridiculously excited to be hosting the amazing Elizabeth Norris for the Authors are Rockstars Tour today! To me, Liz is a rockstar because not only is she an amazing writer, but she's an awesome person. Liz is probably the most hosted author on Literary Exploration, having done an interview for the Unraveling blog tour as well as for her stop during the Dark Days. I also had a post giving the Top 10 Reasons to read Unraveling. Needless to say, Unraveling is amazing on so many levels; being a sci fi thriller involving romance and aliens (So Jaime disagrees with me on the alien part but I am convinced they are aliens), nothing gets much better. If you haven't already picked up a copy of Unraveling you should really get on that ASAP!


 About the Author
Elizabeth Norris briefly taught high school English and history before trading the southern California beaches and sunshine for Manhattan's recent snowpocalyptic winter.

She harbors dangerous addictions to guacamole, red velvet cupcakes, sushi, and Argo Tea, fortunately not all together.

Her first novel, UNRAVELING (Balzer+Bray, April 2012), is the story of one girl’s fight to save her family, her world, and the one boy she never saw coming.


How I would cast the Unraveling movie.

As Janelle
I would definitely have to choose Jennifer Lawrence. The Hunger Games really proved how badass she is and I think she'd do Janelle proud!
As Ben 
Definitely a young Penn Badgley. I love him now and I loved him with long hair :) 
As Alex
I think Kevin McHale would do an amazing job!! He's so quirky and fun :) 
As Janelle's Dad (Jim)
Christopher Meloni! I loved him in Law and Order: SVU and I think he'd make an awesome dad for Janelle!
As Struz
Dax Shepard would make an awesome Struz! Blonde surfer-type? Hilarious? Yes please!

How Elizabeth Norris would cast the movie.

As Janelle
Hailee Steinfeld from True Grit
As Ben
James Franco from his Freaks and Geeks days
As Barclay
Taylor Kitsch

  47. I don't know D: I haven't read the book yet, so I don't have an idea, BUT, you say Jennifer Lawrence & I am all the way supporting you; I love her actuation skills~

    ReplyDelete
  48. That is a great question. Unraveling is one of my favorite books of this year, so the casting would have to be JUST right. I think I would cast Emma Watson(Hermione) as Janelle. As for the rest of the cast, I think I will have to reread and think on the cast while reading. But Emma would be great as Janelle, no doubt.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I think Elizabeth's casting was spot on!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Umm I would cast Shiloh Fernandez ;D

    ReplyDelete

  52. I haven't had a chance to read the book yet :( So I'm not sure who I would pick. But I would love to see Hailee Steinfeld in a new movie. Or maybe I'll just go watch True Grit again :P
