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.

Quiz: How well do you remember the 2007 Oscars?

3:32 pm EST, January 18, 2017

As the 89th Academy Awards approach, we take a trip back to 2007 to see how memorable the ceremony really was 10 years ago.

Ah, the Oscars. What a night. Glitz and glamour, lots of rich and beautiful people crying and thanking each other. What’s not to like?

In 10 years, will we look back at the 2017 Oscars and remember every detail of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling awkwardly accepting award after award for La La Land while the other nominees politely clap and try not to grit their teeth? Or will the event fade into distant memory?

Maybe we can get an answer to that question by dialling back the clock to 2007 and see just how clearly we remember the 79th Academy Awards.

How did you do? Tell us how well you remember the 79th Academy Awards in the comments!

The nominations for the 89th Academy Awards will be unveiled Tuesday, January 24.

You may know that one of those dogs-are-so-great-and-warm-our-hearts movies, A Dog’s Purpose, is hitting theaters very soon. Unfortunately, it’s now embroiled in controversy.

TMZ has released a video from the film’s Canadian set depicting a German Shepherd being forced into a fast-moving stream of water. As you can tell, the dog clearly does not want to go in it.

The most upsetting part of the video comes at the very end when we see the dog finally in the fake river but having trouble staying above water. The crew calls cut to rescue him/her.

You may know that one of those dogs-are-so-great-and-warm-our-hearts movies, A Dog’s Purpose, is hitting theaters very soon. Unfortunately, it’s now embroiled in controversy.

TMZ has released a video from the film’s Canadian set depicting a German Shepherd being forced into a fast-moving stream of water. As you can tell, the dog clearly does not want to go in it.

The most upsetting part of the video comes at the very end when we see the dog finally in the fake river but having trouble staying above water. The crew calls cut to rescue him/her.

“Sources connected to production tell us eight outboard motors were used to churn the water and recreate a rushing river,” says TMZ. “The dog eventually got in the water — or was forced in — but was quickly submerged.”

At 1:28 in the below trailer you can see a scene that looks similar to what was being filmed in TMZ’s video:

Universal and their partners at Amblin told TMZ in a statement, “Fostering a safe environment and ensuring the ethical treatment of our animal actors was of the utmost importance to those involved in making this film and we will look into the circumstances surrounding this video.”

A Dog’s Purpose stars Dennis Quaid and Britt Robertson. It opens next Friday, January 27.

Update: Josh Gad, who voices a dog in the movie, issued the following statement on Instagram. He speaks highly of the film but says he finds the leaked video “disturbing.”

“While I do not know all of the details and cannot speak to the level of care and caution that went into this moment (as I was never on set for the marking of this film), I am shaken and sad to see any animal put in a situation against its will.”

Since apparently some of you did not see the statement I issued last night, here it is again.

Moviegoers may be getting the Spidey we’ve all been hoping for! A new report reveals that Sony’s animated Spider-Man movie, set to hit theaters in 2018, will focus on the Miles Morales Spidey.

Update (January 18, 2017): Sony Animation confirmed on Wednesday, January 18 that their animated Spider-Man movie will star Miles Morales!

Original story (May 2016): Heroic Hollywood, who has a good record of breaking superhero news, is the source behind the exciting development. As was previously announced, the animated Spider-Man movie will be produced by LEGO Movie helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The duo are also set to direct the Star Wars Han Solo spinoff for Lucasfilm.

Who is Miles Morales? As we wrote in a lengthy tell-all about the character last year:

Miles Morales is the current Spider-Man in Marvel’s Ultimate Comics series. Introduced in 2011, Miles is a black-hispanic young man who, like Peter Parker, is a talented scientist and self-proclaimed nerd. However, unlike his predecessor, Morales steps into the superhero’s shoes at the surprisingly young age of 13.

Raised in Brooklyn, Miles was born into a family plagued by criminal activity. Before settling down with his wife Rio, Miles’s father Jefferson used to be crime partners with his brother Aaron (Miles’s uncle). However, where Jefferson tried to shrink away from the lifestyle, Aaron continues to embrace it — assuming the role of classic Marvel villain the Prowler. After pulling off a heist on Oscorp, Aaron unknowingly takes a genetically modified spider home with him. It is at Aaron’s house that Miles is bit by the spider and starts the transformation into Spider-Man.

Where Peter Parker relished the opportunity to become spidey, Miles is reluctant to enter the world of vigilantism. What’s more, his family’s criminal history causes him to question whether or not he can ever be a hero, or if evil is hardwired into him.

Oh, and one other cool thing about him: The guy is immortal, unlike the Peter Parker version of Spider-Man.

The rumor mill was alive with chatter about the MCU’s Spidey being the Miles Morales version last year, but obviously those reports never panned out. The Peter Parker version of Spider-Man was introduced in Captain America: Civil War, played by Tom Holland. He’s getting his own spinoff film, Spider-Man: Homecoming, next year.

Telling the Miles Morales story on screen may be just the thing the animated Spider-Man movie needs in order for it to draw people into the theaters in December 2018. We’ve had enough Peter Parker stories!

2018 will be a great year for super hero diversity: Marvel’s Black Panther starring Chadwick Boseman will be released a few months earlier.
