Matched Author Wants Nina Dobrev, Logan Lerman, Nathan Fillion Cast For Movie
Are you ready for another love triangle between two guys and a gal?
In Ally Condie's Matched trilogy, a 17-year-old girl named Cassia lives in a dystopian future where the Society makes all the choices for the people, including their love matches. During her Matching ceremony, Cassia is paired with her best friend, Xander, but first a glitch in the system flashes the face of a boy named Ky. She becomes obsessed with Ky, even as she knows she should focus on her life with Xander.
The young adult series is in film development through Disney, and Entertainment Weekly talked to author Ally about her preferred casting for the characters. "I'm 34, so I'm mostly thinking about whose dad Nathan Fillion could play," Ally said, laughing. (No complaints! We’ll take as much Nathan as we can get.)
"A lot of fans have been sending pictures of actors,” the author continued. “I just saw Logan Lerman in The Perks of Being a Wallflower. A lot of fans have mentioned him, and I was kind of dying because he's the cutest thing ever — he would be a great Ky. Also, Nina Dobrev of The Vampire Diaries [would be good for Cassia]." EW noted that Nina looks like the girl on the Matched series book covers. "She does," Ally agreed. "I think she would be lovely. You hope you can get someone wonderful." Nina is all kinds of wonderful!
Fantastical young adult love triangles are all the rage right now, from Twilight and The Hunger Games to Nina’s own TVD. This Matched series could be the next big film series, if they cast it right. Are you a fan? Which actors do you see in the main roles?
