Chasing Vermeer -- If I Could Cast the Movie . . .
When I read Chasing Vermeer by Blue Balliett, I thought it would be a great movie. Then a friend told me that Warner Brothers bought the rights in 2004 but they haven't even started casting the roles. So I started thinking about who could play Calder, Petra and Ms. Hussey. After some thought I this is who I would pick for the roles:
Calder Pillay: Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers. I think he has a little of a geeky side to pull off Calder really well. OR the other possibility for Calder would be Michael Cera — he's the guy from Juno, and he would be pretty good too!
Do you agree? Can you think of anyone better to play these roles in a movie?
