The Host 질문

What do 당신 think about Stephenie's choice, for the men of the book?

She gave an interview (to Larry Carroll) and said whom she would like to see playing Ian, Kyle, Jeb and Jared.


"Larry Carroll had an interview with Stephenie Meyer the author of the twilight saga, and this time she talked about The Soul and The Seeker, 책 that will follow The Host; she also talked about the cast that came she thinks could play the part for Jeb, Ian, Kyle and Jared ; so this is what she said:

MTV: Do 당신 plan on 글쓰기 “Host” sequels?

Meyer: I hope. If I were to continue on with “The Host,” which is a possibility, there are characters and stories that could continue. … If I went ahead with that, it would be two more. … 다음 would be “The Soul,” and then “The Seeker.”

MTV: You’ve said that when 당신 write, 당신 cast actors in the roles in your head. Would 당신 like to see a “Host” movie? Who are your dream stars?

Meyer: I would. … With “Twilight,” I felt the actors needed to be up-and-coming artists that haven’t been recognized yet. … With “The Host,” I think the actors could be really big names. That would be cool. I’d 사랑 to see Robert Redford put on a beard and be Jeb; he would be amazing. … Matt Damon has some very Jared-esque qualities, and then [I'd 사랑 to see] Casey Affleck as Ian and Ben Affleck as Kyle. Imagine the interplay."


So, what do 당신 think about:
Casey Aflleck as Ian
Ben Affleck as Kyle
Matt Damon as Jared and
Robert Redford as Uncle Jeb?

Btw, I'm so against her. Specially about Matt Damon. Robert Redford is the best between those 4, but, still, not the right one.

ugh NO! no flipping way! Stephenie, what is going through your head!? i do not think they would be good at all for the characters. and Matt Damon and Ben Affleck look way too old to play them. and Casey Affleck looks to girlish! he is not at ALL the way i imagined Ian! and Robert Redford, just nuh uh. and for Ian and Kyle, if she wanted one of the Affleck's for the role did she only want the other one cause they are brothers and so are Ian and Kyle so she wanted them to have similarities? ugh, Steph, i 사랑 ya, but come to your senses please.

And Casey is soo small, he has NOTHING to do with the Ian that she described

"ugh NO! no flipping way!" -- my thoughts exactly. I think Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are talented actors, but they are so far removed from my mental image of what the characters are like its... like 당신 thought about the cast for The Host right after watching Good Will Hunting... like shopping when you're hungry...

I absolutly hate it. lol. Don't get me wrong, but they look nothing like the characters in the book. You're right the only one that I could imagine is Robert Redford, but the rest of them just don't work. I also saw an interview were she said she pictured James McAvoy as Ian, and althoughh I 사랑 James McAvoy, I think he's a great actor, I can't see him playing that role

James McAvoy popped into my head after 읽기 the novel, but it was 더 많이 about the characters he has portrayed than his looks. I think he could pull off the sweetness and angst of Ian, but he definitely doesn't fit the physical description.

I like James McAvoy, too. He doesn't fit the description. No, I can't agree.

I can see where Stephenie Meyer is coming from. If I think back to their characters in Good Will Hunting, I can see all of them playing Jared, Ian, and Kyle; however, it is 13 years later. They are all entirely too old to look like the characters now. Plus with many of the roles they have had in recent years, I just couldn't imagine them playing the personalities of Jared, Ian, and Kyle.

I can picture Robert Redford as Uncle Jeb, but I'm not sure he could be as crazy as a fox... haha.

But I still can't understand how she said that they could play them (the host guys) today. It's.. weird.

Yeah, it is odd especially since she is the author. But think about how many people on this fansite suggest actors/actresses who are way too old 또는 barely fit the 설명 of the characters. Sometimes 당신 get a certain image stuck in your head and 당신 can't be realistic... haha.

Yeah, that's a fact, haha, but still being odd because what she described have almost nothing to do with who she imagined.

I can only agree about Robert Redford, too. I understand her when I think of Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Casey Affleck in Good Will Hunting. They were wonderful there but they don't really match the descriptions. Matt has sorta woman-like lips like Jared's but his other features don't match. They are all old to play these roles now.

Her choices, for Twilight, were better, but strange too.

Ugh, no -- they're all too old! Justin Hartley (Oliver 퀸 on Smallville) NEEDS to be Jared -- he is EXACTLY how Jared is described in the book!!!

Yes, I like him, I could see him as Jared, though, he's a little too blond, but that can be fixed easily

well, i know its her book and all, but i just got thru with it, my wife read it to me, and it was frickin awesome, but i sorely disagree with not only steph's pick, but a few others on here

heres my small list, i hope it gets to stephanie:

Jeb - Kris Kristofferson (or alternately Sam Elliot)
Jared - Tom Welling (someone said the green 애로우 from smallville, but he doesnt even fit Steph's 설명 closely)
Ian - Steven Strait
Kyle - Gerard Butler
Melanie/Wanderer - Summer Glau (and after she is re-inserted - Reese Witherspoon)
Doc - Jake Gyllenhaal (or Ed Norton)
Jamie - John Chilleri

Hm ... I think 당신 should change your Jared (Tom Welling) for your Ian (Steven Strait) is your and your Ian for your Jared, fits better the description. I agree with your Jeb, but Reese and Gerard are too old to play their roles, Jamie has to look like Melanie, because they are siblings, and your Melanie, in my opinion, isn't pretty enough.

I agree with ksteiner, Reese and Gerard are too old, however, I like Jake Gyllenhaal for Doc, I imagined him taller, but he could work :D

Yeah, these are the proofs that Melanie is REALLY pretty

Well, I can see where she is coming from. And I admit the cast to Twilight is great. But- I can't see Matt Damon as Jared. When I was 읽기 the book I saw a Casey type playing Ian sure. But I saw Jensen Ackles playing Jared right off. Thanks to 수퍼내츄럴 we know he can be charming, but has the tough side. Jared is lovable but is hardened. He is practical but loyal. Hello! We know Jensen can so pull this off! Plus, he is good looking. And it describes Jared as beautiful. Matt Damon is not "easy on the eyes" but doesnt come close.
