Predict Casting: Shiver

Hi, I'm the BBS intern Owyn, and I have been commissioned to do a couple blogposts every week. For Thursdays, I am going to "predict cast" who I want to be in the films that will be based off books. 
*DISCLAIMER: These are just my opinions. If you have better ideas feel free to comment*

For my first book/movie, I'm doing Shiver by Maggie Steifvater. 

SUMMARY: For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf — her wolf — is a chilling presence she cannot seem to live without. Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human... until the cold makes him shift back again. Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It is her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human — or risk losing himself and Grace forever.

I thoroughly enjoyed the novel and I was excited when I found out that the movie will come out in 2014. Since they haven't cast anyone yet, I decided to have some fun and give some ideas for the cast. 

So here's my Cast List:
Grace Brisbane: Chloe Grace Moretz. I chose Chloe because she naturally fits the characters physical description and I think she could accurately portray a girl in love with a werewolf. 
Sam Roth: Logan Lerman. I chose Logan because, besides the effects of his hotness (and you need a hot werewolf) he also fits the physical description and I believe he will be a better werewolf than Taylor Lautner. 
Isabel Culpeper: Dakota Fanning. Besides the fact that they share the same looks, I think that Dakota could capture the icy air that Isabel naturally has and I don't think a lot of actresses can. 
Cole St. Clair: Josh Hutcherson. Since his popularity seems to be soaring right now and he shares the same physical attributes (and I think he'd be a great werewolf), I think Josh would be a great Cole.
Shelby: Evanna Lynch. I loved Luna Lovegood, and I would love to see Evanna make the change from wizard to werewolf for her new career outside the Harry Potter genre. 
Rachel Vega: Sarah Hyland. Okay, she doesn't *exactly* match the description, but I think she could play Rachel, the sweet friend who aids the main couple and give her a chance to break her archetype. 
Olivia Marx: Willa Holland. I like the werewolf feel that Willa has. I am not sure whether or not that is a compliment.  
Geoffrey Beck: Ron Howard. I think a famous older name like Ron will bring in more adults to the cinemas. And he could direct it! 

Feel free to leave suggestions! See you next week!
