The Fault in Our Stars casting is now a hot topic among fans since news has been increasing over the last few weeks. Especially since the Breaking Dawn premiere where producer Wyck Godfrey commented that the script is as good, if not better than the book.

Of course, the next big question is who could play these beloved characters?

Godfrey also stated that “we’ve got all the actresses you would ever want to be in it want to play Hazel Grace,” so the big question is who do you think should play Hazel Grace? Its adaptation will truly depend on this actress’ ability to bring Hazel Grace to life and her chemistry with the actor chosen for Augustus Waters.

Check out our choices for Hazel Grace and tell us who your choice for Hazel would be in the comments.

Emma Watson

Emma Watson has proven that she is a diverse actress ready to take on a leading lady role outside that of Hermione Granger. Her turn in The Perks of Being a Wallflower has proven Emma can take on tough roles and make them her own. She also has the intellectual presence as well as the sassiness to play Hazel. While she probably won’t be most people’s first choice, Emma Watson has a lot to offer the role.

Mae Whitman

Mae Whitman has had a diverse career that started at the age of six. Her first film was When a Man Loves a Woman and since that time Mae has been in numerous movies and TV shows as well as voiced characters such as Tinker Bell. Mae’s most current role is on Parenthood where she plays a sassy, snarky teen. Mae is definitely up for the challenge of playing Hazel and her looks fit the description of Hazel making a solid choice.

Sami Gayle

Sami Gayle is a relative unknown. She can currently be seen on Blue Bloods playing Nicki Reagan-Boyle, the granddaughter of Captain Reagan played by Tom Selleck. Sami certainly has the look of Hazel. Even though she has a smaller resume than the others she brings a lot of talent to the table. Sami has an emotional range to her acting that would suit Hazel.

Hailee Steinfeld

Hailee Steinfeld first burst on to the scene in True Grit playing opposite Matt Damon and stealing scenes. She is also no stranger to adaptations considering she just finished filming Ender’s Game and Romeo and Juliet. Steinfeld has the acting chops to take on the role of Hazel and she also fits the age range. Steinfeld is on the brink of being the next big teen star, playing Hazel could be the ultimate role for her.

Abigail Breslin

Abigail Bresslin began her career at age six in M. Night Shyamalan’s Signs. Since that time she has been in over 30 movies and television shows. Abigail was nominated for an Oscar for her role in Little Miss Sunshine. Abigail has certainly proven ability to play diverse roles and could bring a quirkiness to the role of Hazel. Abigail also has experience working in films about cancer and would bring that knowledge to the role.

Now that you’ve seen our choices for Hazel who do you think should play her? Also, be on the look out for our Augustus casting choices.

A new Fifty Shades Darker trailer was released on Wednesday and ups the sexy for the sequel.

Ana and Christian are getting back together in the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel, but the former has a couple of new rules: No secrets, way less BDSM. Christian agrees, but new problems come to light: Is someone from the millionaire’s past haunting him?

Dakota Johnson continues to bring a fun vibe to Ana Steele, playing the awkward lines with self awareness better than Kristen Stewart ever did as Bella in Twilight. “Have dinner with me,” Christian begs. “Okay fine, I will have dinner with you, because I’m… hungry,” Ana replies. The line could come off corny if executed poorly, but Dakota has a strong hold on playing this character for fun.

Tickets for Fifty Shades Darker are now on sale. Check out a new poster for the movie below:

The Fifty Shades Darker synopsis reads, “When a wounded Christian Grey tries to entice a cautious Ana Steele back into his life, she demands a new arrangement before she will give him another chance. As the two begin to build trust and find stability, shadowy figures from Christian’s past start to circle the couple, determined to destroy their hopes for a future together.”

The movie hits theaters this Valentine’s Day. It stars Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Eric Johnson, Jennifer Ehle, Victor Rasuk, Luke Grimes, Rita Ora, Eloise Mumford, Max Martini, Bella Heathcote, Kim Basinger and Marcia Gay Harden, and is directed by James Foley.

It’s looking like Nick Robinson will go from battling dinosaurs to battling the process of coming out.

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is an excellent coming of age/coming out LGBT YA novel which we’ve raved about here on Hypable before. Nick Robinson is definitely an actor we can picture in the role, so we can’t wait to see him play the adorable character.

The film is being produced by Wyck Godfrey’s Temple Hill Entertainment, who’s responsible for The Maze Runner series, The Twilight Saga, and the upcoming Power Rangers.

What do think of Nick Robinson as Simon?

If you haven’t read it yet, we highly recommend that you do. The book was first published last year:

Netflix has unveiled a new Series of Unfortunate Events trailer, showing off Neil Patrick Harris’ excellent portrayal of the evil, wacky, will-stop-at-nothing-to-get-that-money Count Olaf.

Neil Patrick Harris’ ability to convincingly become any person — whether male or female, young or old, ugly or beautiful — becomes abundantly clear in the latest ASOUE trailer. While some of us may’ve been a little skeptical of his casting initially, it’s hard to imagine anyone else in the role after seeing previews like this.

The trailer begins with narrator Lemony Snicket (played by Patrick Warburton) warning that the new Netflix show is no delightful watch. Then the focus turns to Olaf and his mission to steal the children’s fortune, left to them by their parents after their untimely deaths:

A Series of Unfortunate Events premieres all eight episodes of its first season on January 13, 2017.

“Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) and starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans — Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – whose evil guardian Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises, in order to discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death.”

Another trailer was released two weeks ago — you can watch it here.

Is ‘Unfortunate Events’ looking as good as you hoped?

Harris previously confirmed that each book will be adapted into two episodes of the show. The first season of ASOUE covers the first four books, so presumably season 2 will roughly cover another four books. There are a total of 13 books in Lemony Snicket’s series.
