Casting for Splintered: The Movie

Confession: I'm having a really hard time letting go of A.G. Howard's Splintered series until Ensnared graces our shelves next year. I found the series late and blew threw Splintered and Unhinged and now I don't know what to do (maybe it's not quite that serious). I thought I'd have a little bit of fun and cast some of the characters for the movie that is going to happen (because if they can make a Twilight they HAVE to make this).

Emilie de Ravin as Ivory

In my head, Ivory is a gorgeous, platinum blonde, innocent-faced woman. That is what I went looking for and that's what I found in Emilie de Ravin (come on, she played Belle). This photo with the super blonde hair just felt right to play the role of Ivory. 

Marcia Cross as Red

Red was a bit tricky. When I read about her, I really pictured her as being a middle aged [w]itch. So when I went looking for someone for the role of Red, I knew immediately when I saw Marcia Cross that she was the one! I mean, have you seen Desperate Housewives? But seriously, in this picture, she's perfect. 

Darren Criss as Jeb

Okay, so you'll have to put Blaine Anderson out of your mind in order to see this one (it took me a few minutes too). But Glee aside, Darren Criss definitely looks the part of Jeb as I'd imagined him... and his full lips totally match the cover of Ensnared. 

Amanda Seyfried as Alyssa

I have always loved Amanda Seyfried! I even have a couple signed photos and DVD cases from her! She fits perfectly as Alyssa, in my opinion. She has a look that can be either very innocent or super edgy. With the pink hair I think she just went up a few notches to land the part, as far as I'm concerned. 

Tyler Blackburn as Morpheus

I had such a hard time with the role of Morpheus! He is by far my favorite character in the books and I really didn't know what direction to go in to capture his sexy, dark, mysterious looks. Truth: I was dying to go with Johnny Depp or Ian Sommerhalder, but when it came right down to it, I don't think either of them fit. He's honestly not even one of my favorite actors, but once I saw this photo of Tyler Blackburn, I was sold. 

Izabella Miko as a Neverland creature

Because what the heck is with her face?
