Richelle Mead, the author of the Vampire Academy Series has decided to option off these popular vampire books for a movie. This series has risen in popularity and fans everywhere are anxious and excited about seeing one of their favorite series getting its chance on the big screen.
This is a continuation of the article "Who should Rose play in the Vampire Academy Movie", but here we are going to be discussion Dimitri Belikov. The strong, sexy Guardian Dhampir Rose Hathaway has an ongoing romance with in the books.
You can check out some of the other characters at the below links.
Now that is a handsome group of men there, and really I think I could fall in love with any of them, but Dimitri requires some special attention here. Dimitri is tall, strong, sexy, and silent. He is a strong fighter, and strict teacher. He also turns Strigoi in the third book, so that is something to keep in mind as well. Dimitri has a deep Russian accent, and intense eyes that create an aura of fierceness within him. Dimitri is also young, and by young I mean in his mid twenties, he's older than Rose, but still young enough for their love not to be gross.
The crowd favorite here is Ben Barnes and Andrei Andrei (commonly referred to as BB or AA, respectively). Among the other fan favorites are Danila Kozlovsky, Taylor Kitsch, Jaren Padelecki, Channing Tatum, and Rick Malambri.
My favorite out of this group of gorgeous guys is Danlia Kozlovsky, he is dark, handsome and come from Russia, so you know he has the accent down pat! He does seem a little old for the part, but I think Andrei Andrei is also a bit old for the part.
Ben Barnes is the fan favorite and there is no doubt that he is smoking hot and sexy too, but I don't see him having the build I imagine for Dimitri.
Taylor Kitsch is also a fan favorite, but while he does have the notoriously long hair we all invision Dimitri to have, he doesn't seem to hold himself in that all encompassing masculine manner we all feel Dimitri has.
