DID YOU KNOW?!
A) Did you know that Ender's Game is one of my top 5 favorite books? (If the answer to this is no, you haven't taken the friendship quiz. Or if you did, you failed.)
2) That after YEARS of IMDB saying that they were in "pre-production" for the movie they finally released a cast list?!
tres) That I'm beyond thrilled about all of the casting that I've seen so far?
You wanna see?
Right?! I mean, he's a little older than Ender is in the book, but he's a phenomenal actor and I love him already.
Believe it or not, that is Abigail Breslin. I was shocked. And amazed. And thrilled because she's a lovely actress.
I never imagined Graff as being good looking. Ever. Just fat. Really really fat.
This might be my favorite casting decision of all. He's precisely who I imagined Mazer looking like when I read the book. I squealed a little (read: A LOT) when I saw his name on the list.
I haven't decided yet how I feel about them changing Anderson's character into a woman. I have NO doubt that Viola Davis can pull it off (the woman can ACT), but it changes the tone of the character quite a bit.
(There are about a million more characters, but I'm only going to give you two more. You can go here to see the rest of the cast).
Once again, she'll do.
Bean is my favorite character in the book next to Ender. And since I've seen this kid on NCIS, I give him two thumbs up. He's fab.
So there you have it. My nerdiness is about to hit a whole new level, friends. Prepare yourselves.
