Cast Them Away (7)

Hey Chroniclers! How's it going? It's a bit eh on this side but hopefully it'll get better. The weather is being fantastic today and I feel like it's about time I start working on my tan. Perhaps this weekend but let us step away from tanning and talk about some books. Today is Wednesday so that means I can give out another edition of Cast Them Away! Cast Them Away is a weekly meme hosted by me where I choose an actor or actress to play a character from a book if the book were ever turned into a movie. This week I'll be focusing on a novel that I have reviewed and will be putting up an author interview tomorrow.

The Namesake by Steven Parlato is a contemporary novel about a teen, Evan, whose father commits suicide. The story revolves around Evan trying to find the reasoning behind his dad's suicide and eventually he finds his answers and starts wishing he never had.

The novel is a dark and emotional roller coaster as you learn the secrets of the father. More of the novel can be found in my review of it.

But onto the characters. There's many characters I could try to cast and if I were to keep the trend that I've been doing I would cast a female. But, I'm going to switch it up a bit and cast a male character. Not only because he's a male character but because he's the main character.

It took me a while to find an actor who was young that could take the role of Evan but a while ago I saw a movie trailer in theaters for a film called The Way, Way Back and that's when it hit me that I found Evan! I present to thee...

Liam James! He has done a couple of movies and shows, mostly when he was younger, but I think this would be a great role for him. Not only does he look like the Evan in my head but he has this thing about him that reminds me of his character as well.

One can only hope and dream that books they love get turned into movies and if it ever happens with this one, I'm definitely going to want Liam James for the role. Otherwise they're doing it wrong.

What do you guys think? Yay or nay? Have anyone else in mind for the role? Leave your comments down below!

Hey Mike,

What a great feature, and Liam James definitely fits the Evan in my head as well. Excellent pick! What's also cool is that he shares a birthday, August 7th, with my son, Ben.

All best,

Steven Parlato

I really like the cover of this book. I haven't heard of Liam James I don't think. I found you on Book Blogs and I am now your newest follower! I hope you have a wonderful day and that you'll stop by for a visit sometime when you get the chance. :)
