During a Twitter Q & A earlier with e-reading company Kobo while attending Book Expo America, James Dashner revealed who he would like to play certain characters in the adaption of his second Maze Runner novel, THE SCORCH TRIALS.
Hailee is best known for performance in the 2010 True Grit remake that earned her a Supporting Actress nomination at the Academy Awards. She is also going to be staring in this summer’s Romeo and Juliet and in November’s Ender’s Game as Petra Arkanian.
Hmmmmm. Joel Courtney? RT @MightaZerie: If there’s a dream cast for Brenda-then who do you want to play as Aris ? #koboBEA13
Joel is best known for playing Joe Lamb in the 2011 movie Super 8. Joel was also James’s dream actor to play Thomas in THE MAZE RUNNER before Dylan O’Brien was cast.
Keep in mind that James has little, if any, say as to who gets casted in the movie, so don’t get to excited if Hailee and Joel align perfectly with who you thought of while reading the book. What do you think of James’s picks? Let us know in the comments!
“Good.” Rat Man absently picked up another piece of paper and turned it over. “At that point, the Scorch Trials will have begun. The rules are very simple. Find your way to open air, then head due north for one hundred miles. Make it to the safe haven within two weeks’ time and you’ll have completed Phase Two. At that point, and only at that point, you’ll be cured of the Flare. That’s exactly two weeks—starting the second you step through the Trans. If you don’t make it, eventually you’ll end up dead.”
Check out this Teresa/Thomas photo manip with one of my favorite scenes from The Scorch Trials. At least this is one of my favorite Teresa Agnes scenes. I’m still on the fence about how I feel about her in general, but this moment is really one of her better ones in my opinion. Plus I really love the quote!
Check out this fan made The Scorch Trials poster from allthatklunk.tumblr.com. What do you think of Jemima West as Teresa Agnes? I actually think she would be a VERY good fit for the role. I’m not much of a fan caster myself, but Jemima looks a lot like what I imagined Teresa would.
Who do you think should play Teresa? Let us know in the comments section below. And how excited are you for this to become a movie?! I know we’re going to get The Maze Runner first (obviously), but visually I might be look forward to The Scorch Trials more. Those first few chapters really freaked me out!
So, after 8 weeks of searching and you voting, we have finally come down to Thomas! Before we get to that, I have to announce our new Teresa. At the moment I saw the poll, Alexandra Daddario was at 20 votes, but Isabelle Fuhrman was at 21, officially making her our new Teresa! It’s moments like these I like seeing! This week is our last week of voting, then our very own admin Megan will be putting together an undoubtedly cool video featuring the cast that you chose! Without further ado… Thomas!
Colin Ford’s most recent box office movie was the heartwarming family film, “We Bought a Zoo.” Also, earlier in 2012 he played in the drama “Eye of the Hurricane,” for television. He has been in the TV series, “Supernatural,” as Young Sam Winchester, with his role spaced out for 3 years. Despite his record not being very long, he manages to do an exceedingly great job in every movie I have seen him in.
Logan Lerman gained everyone’s attention when he starred as Percy Jackson in “Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.” A yeard after that, he played in “The Three Musketeers,” as the witty wanna be Musketeer, D’Artagnan. Later this year, he will be co-starring in the movie “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” with none other than Emma Watson.
Braeden Lemasters has been featured in a lot of TV series, but the show he stayed with longest was “Men of a Certain Age.” He has also played a small role in “Easy A,” and a supporting actor role in “The Stepfather,” as the youngest in the family.
Luke Benward first REALLY came into movie existence when he played friend of the main character along with his ‘brother’ in “Because of Winn-Dixie.” Many may have also seen him in the Disney movie, “Minutemen,” portraying the young genius alongside actors Jason Dolley and Nicholas Braun. From what I’ve seen, he definitely has personality, but can he mold it to the maze?
James Gaisford is an unknown actor, famous for roles as Finnick and Haymitch on Youtube’s “Main Stay Productions” channel. Out of all the actors displayed today, he is the oldest looking, but usually older actors are made to play teens in movies. If you have seen him in the video “Hunger Games: The Second Quarter Quell,” then you know that he is an amazing actor when it comes to fight scenes and emotion.
Thank you all for taking your time out of your summer to read this! Vote for your favorite Thomas in the poll down below. Be on the lookout for the video with our entire Dream Cast! This will more than likely be my last post, because I am moving over summer and am very busy with extra schooling. I feel bad that I was an admin for such a short time, but I have loved every second of it and will miss posting! Thank you again for your support.
