The Maze Runner Movie Cast List
Yes, that is the answer to the question in everyone's minds who know my articles well and have been following me. Yes, I missed my calling in life. I should have been a casting director. I love to speculate on who will be cast for upcoming movies y'all!!! If you've read The Maze Runner then you know how awesome this movie will be! I don't think it is a rumor. I think Christmas came early this year and they are actually going to film this puppy. If they make it half as crazy cool as the book, and if the books continue to rock, this could trump Twilight and maybe even The Hunger Games. If you haven't read the books....READ THEM. Here's a review by yours truly http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Maze-Runner-book-review. The second book entitled The Scorch Trials just came out, and the third is already finished. If you rock and you have read the books let's do some casting! Good that?
The shank that changed it all. As soon as I started reading Josh Hutcherson popped into my head. I really liked him in every movie I've seen him in. He has grown up a bit and I think this role will help him transition from kid star to a force to be reckoned with.
The leader of the pack. He needs to be a strong character and actor. I actually pictured a guy I graduated with for some reason, but he probably can't act so..... how about Brandon T. Jackson. Who? You know the goat man from Percy Jackson. I don't think he quite fit that role, but this one would be perfect!
Second in command and just a great guy. Everyone has been buggin' me (OK...maybe just a few of people) to cast Drako Malfoy in Hunger Games as various people, but this character was written for him y'all! Tall, blond, and British........... you know I'm right. I would also like to see Tom Felton as the good guy.
The annoying little buddy. If you have seen Diary of a Wimpy Kid then you KNOW. This kid IS Chuck. He made that movie y'all, and he would rock this one as well. BTW.... I just wanted to tell you that my kids made me watch Diary of a Wimpy Kid. It was a bizarre, slightly disgusting show, but this kid cracks me up! Now, if Chunk from the Goonies was still alive (correction.....young.... LOL!) ....it'd be a whole new ball game!
Super creepy dude. Gally is the bad guy in a way. In some ways I feel sorry for him, you know what I mean? This was a struggle because who wants to be evil? I settled on this guy, Luke Pasqualino. Put some grease in his hair and there you go. Instant bad dude.
Running Man. I used to practice that dance. Some of you probably don't even know what that is. Yeah.... I'm getting old. So, who is this guy? Raise your hand if you know. That's right... it is the guy from Glee,Harry Shum Jr. He plays Mike Chang. I don't know that he has yet to have a speaking part on that show, but here's to hoping he can act as well as he can dance. I think he would be a great Minho.
THE girl! Sooooo... here's the dealio. I know a lot of you people want to see Kaya as Katniss, but I am telling you, she fits this part waaaay better. Black hair, blue eyes, pale skin. I'm sorry y'all. This is the perfect role for her! If you haven't read these books you should because they rock just as much as Hunger Games, Twilight, etc. I will be updating this list as always as I read the second book and get to know some of the characters better. Remember, Wicked is good. ;)
SOOO EXCITED FOR THE SCORCH TRIALS!
