You may have already seen yesterday’s guest review of Embrace by Jessica Shirvington.
Today, I’d like to welcome Lisa, the Badass Bookie herself, to share with us her dream casting for Embrace and the Violet Eden Chapters. Those of you who have read it, do you agree?
Violet – Christian Serratos (Twilight)
Lincoln – Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl)
Phoenix – Ian Somerhalder (The Vampire Diaries)
Griffin – Jonathan Patrick Moore (LA Complex)
Dad – Hugh Laurie (House)
Steph – Dakota Fanning
[…] check out the Dream Cast for Embrace that Badass Bookie guest […]
I love the pick for Violet. She is perfect. I can’t remember who she played in Twilight for anything, but she fits Vi to a tee. I also love the picks for Linc and Phoenix. Perfection! I don’t know about the pick for Griff. I think I had him pictured as just a little bit older. Maybe Chris Hemsworth? Yum. Or James Marsden. The rest of the cast are alright, but definitely down with the main 3
I absolutley agree with everyone, except im not sure about griffin and steph but everyone else, especially Violet, Lincoln and Phoenix , are exceptionaly perfect!!!!!!!!!
I love the choice for Violet but I think Ian Somerhalder might be a bit too old to play Phoenix. :/
I think all of them fit really well but I think Steph should be played by someone else mabye
Here I was, hoping that Phoenix wouldn’t be hotter than Lincoln. Geez, I ca’t help say this but, I love Phoenix then. u.u Just the picture I mean. Ian is like my everything. But the cast is awesome. Except for Griffin, he needs someone older? :
i agree with the first 3 defs! she looks a lot like Vi on the front of the books. i dont really agree with dad or Steph though
Everyone down to Lincoln is perfect but I have to disagree with your pick of Phoenix I think that part would be best played by Nicholas Hoult because he has that other worldly look about him not only that but he is every sexy ^_^ step and her dad no a million times no!! There both amazing actors/actresses but not meant to play such iconic people in the Violet Eden chapters and griffin ehh i guess but I think it should be someone eals
Oh just one more thing the girl who is said to be the best Violet she was Bella’s friend the nerdy one… The one that went to prom with the Asian guy @ Jamie Lester
Steph, Lincoln and Violet are completely perfect, but Griffin and her dad just don’t seem right, I pictured Griffin a little older, and Hugh Laurie just doesn’t seem to fit the role. I’m not sure about Phoenix, because I can’t picture him as any one other than Tom Ellis because of Lucifer, although I don’t think that has anything to do with weather or not he’d be a good choice. Other than that, it’s the perfect cast
