So we’ve all known for a while that one of our favorite books, Fallen, is being made into a movie. When Lauren Kate stopped by to talk about Passion back in May, she couldn't really tell us much about it, other than to share our excitement. But it seems that there is finally some development we can report!
I noticed on IMDB today that the page for Fallen was updated with four additions in the “Cast” section. While they have yet to cast Luce and Cam, they have cast Dan, Arriane Alter, Roland Sparks, and Gabbe Givens!
According to IMDB, Dan Grigori will be played by Alex Pettyfer, who played John from I Am Number Four and Kyle from Beastly! To be honest, I was expecting they would cast someone who's less known, but this casting choice is totally fine by me. Plus, I would be lying if I said I didn't find him attractive (he used to model for Gap and Burberry).
Another notable star who'll be playing Roland Sparks is actor Khleo Thomas, who was also in a book-to-movie adaptation, Holes. I snooped a bit on his IMDB page and saw that since Holes he's been keeping busy with a variety of TV shows and movies, most notably CSI, House, Walking Tall, and Roll Bounce. With productions like these, I'm fairly certain Khleo will do more than a great job.
The ladies who'll be playing Arriane Alter and Gabbe Givens respectively, are the lovely Elizabeth Gillies and Indiana Evans. I recognized Elizabeth from somewhere but couldn't really place her, until I realized that she was Jade West in Victorious and iCarly. Elizabeth and costar Indiana both have a string of TV series under their belts, which makes me confident in their abilities.
Keep in mind that this cast has not yet been officially confirmed. However, this is a promising start in my opinion, as it gives me a better picture of who's who, and who I'd like to see. I'm so excited about this movie that I've even created a new thread over in the Lauren Kate forums, Fallen Movie Casting! I hope to see you Buzzers around there to chat about it as we get more news on development. I'm kind of hopeful that Ed Westwick will channel Chuck Bass' charming, bad boy self as Cam, but that's just me.
