Casted! is a new feature here at The Crazy Bookworm that will feature sporadically, but likely once a month. It is where we take our favourite reads, can be old or new, and conjure up our dream cast!

I would love it for you to join in with me! Either commenting your dream cast or making your own post. If you make your own post, be sure to link it in the comment so I can come check it out :)


Looking for Alaska

Okay, I know I am biting off a lot here. This book is pretty epic, and it would take some fine actors to live up to these parts. Here is who I would cast for Looking for Alaska.

Looking for Alaska
About the Book: 
Before. Miles “Pudge” Halter is done with his safe life at home. His whole life has been one big non-event, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave “the Great Perhaps” even more (Francois Rabelais, poet). He heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young. She is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. Then. . . . 
After. Nothing is ever the same.

When I saw Nat Wolff in The Fault in Our Stars I knew he would play the perfect "Pudge"! 

Alaska Young played by Cara Delevingne

I know she stared in Greens'  Papertowns but let's admit it, she would rock the part of the wild Alaska Young. 

The Colonel played by Miles Teller

I LOVE Miles Teller and I think he would easily adapt to playing this character!

There you have it! Who would you cast for Looking for Alaska?
