The Selection by Kiera Cass: Dream Cast

So, I blew through The Selection and The Elite by Kiera Cass this past week.  Apparently the last book in the trilogy doesn't come out for another month-and-a-half, though.  WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME THIS?  

To pass the time while I wait for The One to be released, I decided to make a cast list.  When in doubt, cast a nonexistent movie.  Works every time.

To tell you the truth, I always pictured my beautiful red-headed cousin in the role of America while I was reading.  (I have several beautiful red-headed cousins, but for whatever reason, one in particular played America in my head.)  As this particular cousin has a life and a career and dreams that do not include acting, I had to find another actress for the role.  (However, should she decide to rearrange her whole life to accommodate my fictitious film adaptations, she would certainly be my first pick.)  

That being said, here's who I would cast in The Selection by Kiera Cass:

Young Jessica Chastain as America Singer

Alternate (not-almost-40-year-old) option: Emma Watson as America Singer.  
Emma would make a great redhead.

Dean Geyer as Prince Maxon

Robert Sheehan as Aspen Ledger

Blake Lively as Marlee

Camilla Belle as Celeste

Keiko Kitagawa as Elise

Erinn Westbrook as Kriss

Aimee Teegarden as Natalie

Holly Marie Combs as Anne

Joanne Froggatt as Mary

Anne Hathaway as Lucy

Josh Brolin as King Clarkson

Penelope Cruz as Queen Amberley

Eleanor Bron as Sylvia

Ceasar Flickerman as Gavril Fedaye
(kidding... sort of...)


  1. I love it when you do these. I'm going to read these now! Thanks for the tip.

    1. Thanks Janelle! I enjoyed the books, but you may want to hold off reading them until May so that you don't have to wait until the last book in the series is released. Enjoy!
