The Maze Runner Movie Cast List

Updated on January 22, 2013

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?

Source

Thomas

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.

Alby

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!


Newt

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.

Source

Chuck

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!

Source

Gally

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.

Source

Minho

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.

Source

Teressa

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!

What about this song?

...or this one covered by a more current, edgy band.

      Maddie (: 6 years ago

      Ive read both books and find them amazing. I think that those are all great actors. But in my opinion is that in the movie the actors shoulds be people who arent known yet, or atleast not known very well. All the readers of the book have gotten there own images of the characters and if the characters are done by big stars people are gonna think back to there other roles vs new unknown actors who haven't had a past.

      CoCo 6 years ago

      I actually think your choices for the cast are pretty dead on. Except for when I read both Maze Runner and Scorch Trials I visioned Newt differently. Brandon T. Jackson comes off as a comedian to me. I think the role should be a more serious actor. Also, Chuck I pictured him older. Other than that I LOVED your choices, especially Teresa, it was pretty accurate! I love this series! :)

      Maddie (: - Who'd ya choose?

      CoCo - Thanks! I thought Brandon wasn't funny enough in Percy Jackson actually. Plus I like to see people do different things. No one likes to be labeled.

      sara- I think they barely bought the rights. James said he really can't say anything about it yet. I hope it's sooner than later!

      Addie- This is another movie that could get really messed up if they don't follow the story line and pick a good cast! Unfortunately it's not up to the author. Once they give rights to their book to someone they have little say in anything. Stephenie Meyers was more involved than most authors are.

      ann- Thanks! I may put in some alternative cast picks for this one as well. I just really like this one though. :)

      The actor for chucky is the exact actor i was thinking about while reading the book. haha I like the choices for Thomas and Newt, although I doubt tom felton will want to be part of another franchise =/ When I read the books, i pictured Alby as Michael B. Jordan, the guy who plays Vince in friday night lights. And for Teresa, I pictured Daveigh Chase =)

      thanks! I just finished the first book now. I'm speechless by how amazing it was. I was literally at the edge of my seat with every chapter. lol

      But it worries me now knowing that Catherine Hardwicke is the director. I mean, she's a great director but her style of directing doesn't fit an action packed story like the Maze Runner... Then again, she might surprise us all and actually make it epic aha

      I have been following the Hunger Games cast list for a while now and saw you were making a cast list for this book too! I'm super excited for this book to become a movie (though I still think the Hunger Games are the best books EVER). I like your cast list except for Gally. That actor just doesn't look right to me. I think he needs sharper features.

    • Chewbacca23 profile image

      Chewbacca23 6 years ago from Colorado

      Hey MissE, The chuck, Teresa, and Alby characters seem perfect, especially Chuck, but I think that Gally needs to look older and meeaner, well no tougher i guess i could say, Kind of like Dally in the OUtsiders movie. He would be perfect if only he were younger haha o well. I think that your tomas is a little to old for my likings but i wouldn't be against him, i guess I have made Thomas a young person in my mind than in real life..also doesn't newt have brown hair? I justcould see Draco as him...

      o i almost forgot, do you know about when they are making the movie and around when it will be released???

    • MissE profile image

      MissE 6 years ago from Texas

      Lauren - Yeah, I have a better Gally in mind now. It's just been so much keeping up with the Hunger Games page I haven't given this list any love lately. I have a lot more time to work on this one though.

      Chewbacca23 - You think Thomas is younger? Hmmmm...IDK I think he's in his late teens. I'm also pretty such Newt has blond hair. The last time I checked up on this movie the author had said they are in discussions about it right now, but he can't talk about the details I will post when I find out more.

      I think there should be big names in this, but no Harry Potter or Twilight actors, even if they didn't have big parts because they have already had there fun for now, there still needs to be unkowns, just not a lot.

      I cannot see Luke as Gally in any way, shape, or form. I was totally in love him on Skins. I actually pictured him as Thomas, although I like Josh Hutcherson as well.

      I just got Maze Runner a couple days ago and I'm only halfway through it, but I know it'd be a kickass movie and with most of your casting choices, it'd be AMAZING. Oddly enough, Josh is actually the closest person I've had in mind for Thomas. It just seems like a story that Josh would take on.

      i was surprised at how much i agree with you! haha usually i have different people in mind but the only one i disagree with is gally i think he needs to have more rough edges. The boy for chuck is perfect! so little and cute yet could play annoying. haha. josh is perfecttt so cute but can play it tough tho too! i just finished scorch trials and immediately went to my library website to reserve then next only to find they don't have it yet! i about cried! i lovee her as teresa too! pictured almost exactly like that too! omg i am soo excited(:

      I absolutely loved this book and am so glad that they r making a movie! I like the choices, especially Teresa but I think Alby should be more serious and Newt should be a little more laid back. Wut about Alex for Thomas, he has the perfect personality though he doesn't really look like him...

      Carlee 5 years ago

      I think this is excellent and we are literally on the exact same page for Thomas, I thought josh too. I thought of "grover" for Alby a bit as well, but i still picture alby as a little more built. I adore your Gally! But i think that for Teresa, Twilight Eclipse's Jodelle Ferland is the best choice. Mainly because I see Kaya as too old.

    • MissE profile image

      MissE 5 years ago from Texas

      Hmmmm....Jodelle would be pretty good. I don't think they'd cast Josh now, because of the Hunger Games. I didn't picture any of the guys to be that built except maybe the cook. Hmmmm.... I need to reread them again.

Btw, I love the maze runner and the scorch trials! I can't wait for the death cure in October. Also, if you like the maze runner, try reading the hunger games ( an equally fantastic read)

      Really great cast. I love all of the choices (although kind of unsure about Chuck...but he's my favorite character so I'm probably just being picky). Kaya's so beautiful and would make a great Teresa. I've never heard of her before.

Look i´m from chile , i´m 12 years old , but i speak and read very good in english(i write in english cos i think is easier for you to understand)but i prefer reading in spanish and i´ve read the first two books in spanish apart from other twenty books :) and i would like to know if you´ve heard some info about people traducing the death cure into spanish id be very happy if you could send that info and a plot of the 3rd book to dsantelicescornejo@gmail.com

      I think open casting is pretty cool. Harry Potter was huge before the movies started, so I think they didn't need as many bigger names. This movie needs a little more star power I think. I love the books of course, but not everyone has heard of them.

      With Hardwicke being the director I think she will bring a great cast to the maze runner movie. I think that is the best thing she did for twilight. It's not the actors or Hardwickes fault the screenplay was so bad.

      I picture lily Collins as a Teresa. I'm sure who ever is picked as Thomas , Hardwicke will find a good match for Teresa.

      Not going to lie, Josh Hutcherson was the first person that came to mind when I thought about casting for this movie. I think he would be awesome!! I was watching a youtube video about who they would like the cast to be and they put Logan Lerman down for the role of Thomas. I really like him as the part. I feel like he look more the right age even though him and Josh are the same age I think. Anywho, I like some of the casting you picked! I just finished this book yesterday and I can't wait to start the second! :D

      I just finshed the second book, it's on the same level as the hunger games to me. You never know what's happening at the end of each page, casting is great, I can see them as the characters, but is draco going to want to do another book based movie? I also think that the move will never be as good as the books, just like the Hunger Games movie will not like the books, but I do see them as AMAZING, and am excited to see them as much I was excited to read them.

      *warning this message contains spoilers* now that no one can virtually scream at me for ruining their book i will get to my point. first i loved this series and have finished them all. second i want to yell at dashner for not lieing like most authors who say " its a trilogy" then come out with 5 books. if he did that id be happy. i just wanted to get this out there cause im not sure how others feel. but what anoyed me about the scorch trials and the death cure was thomas inability to forgive Teresa like what was that all about. they were so good together (fyi im a guy and not gay so me saying that should show how amzing the conections between them were). don't get me wrong brendas great and all but shes not teresa. sure teresa did some bad things by betraying him and all but then she said sorry about 1000 times and saved his life a couple times two. so why not move on and get over it just take her back and be happy. YOU SHANK! but no why would he, he now likes brenda though she will never be teresa but then its all better because teresa dies. oh wait that makes it worse because eright before that dashner starts hinting that thomas feeling for her are coming back. then she saves his life and she dies. which btw was the worst death ever it was like 2 sentences long and she was an important character. not to mention she was about to say something right before she died but thomas couldn't hear the last word because ehis friends pulled him away. im done now thx... oh and good that.

      LOL! What a man! Tell us how you really feel. :) I agree with you though. I totally expected Thomas to end up with Teresa, but Dashner likes to change things around so you don't know what's coming. I also couldn't believe he wouldn't forgive her. She was always trying to help him and save him. I know that Dashner said it's a trilogy, but have you heard he's releasing a prequel? It's called The Kill Order and it comes out in August. Good that? :)

      Hey so spoiler a bit not really but in the 3rd book it says Thomas is 15 or well hints that he is 15 I think it should be open casting call cause they should get people who were never famous to become famous in this movie. If you think about it this movie if made properly can be better than the hunger games and maybe Harry potter like the whole concept and the maze like slot of people from any age will like it!

      And if anyone does get it, because they know Kpop and SHINee... you rock!!!!!

      By the way, I'm not serious. I can't imagine Minho with an accent.

      Okay, I don't wanna sound like a smart aleck, but Minho is pronounced Mee-noh. The 'h' is silent. I know some Korean. C:

      First book spoiler alert!

      I just finished the first book. I almost cried when

      Chuck died.

      Mockingjay spoiler alert!

      When Chuck died it was like when Prim died cuz both died horribly and both died to save people. Prim was saving children when she died and Chuck was saving Thomas. Both times, I was very sad and when Prim died, I threw the book.

I feel giddy. I feel like i could roll around on the ground and laugh. I need to pull myself together.

      I have always pictured a slightly heavier black haired, slightly pale boy to play gally. acne scars. greasy hair. the whole bit. I never imagined him to be even remotely attractive which i find odd now that I think about it.

      I like your choices except Thomas and Minho. I don't like Josh playing Thomas and I think that Minho should be stronger looking (no offense to Harry Shum Jr., he's actually pretty good). I was thinking about Derek Nakamoto from American Ninja Warrior but I don't know if he can act...

      I agree with all the characters except for Josh Hutcherson as Thomas. Personally I didn't like him AT ALL in the Hunger Games and I find the Maze Runner and Hunger Games in ways much similar so I don't want him to go and mess up Thomas too.

      Bleck 4 years ago

      Yeah! I'm agree with you, but I'm not to sure about Teresa, maybe someone else... no? And also Tomas... I think he could be better if the actor who appeared as Percy Jackson could be better than him no? Actually I imagined as Percy, more ... haha I don't know... like him! Not as Josh !

      About the others I'm agree with you, they are perfect!

      I agree with slinthead. I think all the choices are great, ad when I looked at them i thought "Wow, that's alost exactly how i pictured them in the book!" But the one choice i would have to disagree with is Josh for Thomas. Whenever i think of Thomas i think of someone taller and thinner than Josh. Josh is shorter and thick built, a good choice for Peetabin The Hunger Games but not Thomas. I think Greg Sulkin or Shane Harper would both be good canidetes. But i have no idea if either of them would do it.

      hmmm.... yo creo que los unicos que se parecen a los personajes de lo libros son teresa y minho porque de ahi en fuera como que no se parecen mucho yo me imaginaba a chuck pelirrojo y no tan.. pues no tan gordito, y ademas de eso o sea josh huterson o como sea que se escriba no va muy bien con la imagen de tomas, ya arruino mi saga preferida de los juegos del hambre ya que lo describian güero, ojos azules, pelo chino y no lo pusieron a el talvez antes tenia los ojos azules pero ya no y devieron escojer al que va a ser de finnick y no a el puero bueno ese es otro libro, el punto es que se supone que deben de estar muy guapos todos y como que no estan muy guapos que digamos , bueno por lo menos alby deberia ser guapo.

      Bueno ese es mi punto de vista y por favor respetenlo :)

      Ummm.... Who do you think you are saying Josh Hutcherson is too wimpy to play Tomas? He would be PERFECT. I personally think Alby should be played by Liam Hemsworth and Gally should be Alexander Ludwig. Im not tring to create another Hunger Games or anything I just really think these people are AWESOME actors and they should play those roles. You don't have to agree on my opinions I'm just putting them out there

      Josh Hucherson is a great actor, he would be great as Thomas. ButI think other actors need this more than he does, especially after Hunger Games. And becides, even if his hair wasn't blond, all anyone's going to see is Peeta. It's like Daniel Radcliffe in Woman in Black; great actor, but all anyone saw was Harry Potter.

      Hey,so I'm almost finished with the maze runner (I know I behind) but I just wanted to say that I thought Newt was Irish not British. Some of the words he says seem more Irish than British. ( maybe not). Also,I know you made this list a long time ago,but I think josh hutcherson is kind of out of the question because of hunger games( idk,just seems kind of weird.)
