Predict Casting: Paper Towns

Wow I haven't done one of these in a while! So, to welcome back this segment, I'm starting with Paper Towns by John Green!

Due to the massive success of The Fault in Our Stars, it seems like Green's books will slowly take over Hollywood, starting with Paper Towns

It's already been confirmed that Nat Wolff, who played Isaac in TFIOS, will be playing Quentin "Q" Jacobsen, but what about the others? TIME FOR ME TO GUESS.

*NOTE: These are just my opinions. Feel free to leave your own down in the comments!*

Margo Roth

Margo Roth Spiegelman- Ariel Winter. I think her kind of deadpan style is perfect for the Manic Pixie Dream Girl attitude that Margo embodies. Plus, she's my favorite on Modern Family and it'd be interesting to see her on the big screen.
Other choices: Hailee Steinfeld, Shailene Woodley (but this one would be too obvious.)


Ben Starling- Liam James (sound familiar?). I loved him in The Way, Way Back and it'd be totally cool to see him as this dorky dude who calls girls "honeybunnies" but ends up with the hot blonde girl. I think he'd bring the band geek awkwardness to the role, which is a necessity.
Other choices: Josh Hutcherson, Johnny Simmons. 

"Radar"- Nadji Jeter. Radar always seemed like the comic relief to me ("IT'S NOT MY FAULT THAT MY PARENTS OWN THE WORLD'S LARGEST COLLECTION OF BLACK SANTAS") so Jeter's comedy background (Grown Ups) would be very helpful in taking on this role.
Other choices: Christopher Massey, Chris O'Neal. 


Lacey Pemberton: Chloe Grace Moretz. She seems to be in a lot of book-to-movie adaptations, so I might as well call it now. Moretz usually plays the more badass, sarcastic types (or the telekinetic, murderous type like in Carrie,) so I think it'd be interesting for her to play the more popular, almost-ditzy character of Lacey.
Other choices: Jennifer Stone, Bella Thorne.
