I think Sophia Myles would make a petty good Scatty (but she might be slightly too old). And for some reason I see Ian McKellen in there somewhere too.

When I think of Sophie, the only actress who really comes to mind for me is Jennette McCurdy (Sam, on iCarly). I'm open to others, but no one else quite fits how I see Sophie.

For Josh, a friend suggested Tony Oller, from Nickelodeon's As the Bell Rings, and I like him for Josh and even better than I like my pick for Sophie.

Other than that, I haven't given it too much thought, yet.

i think that watching a film ruins my image of the characters from book once i see the film characters i cant help but image them when i think of the character and they miss out soooo much in the films i feel sorry for the people watching it they dont get to have all the information.
but i totally agree Hugh Laurie wub.gif as Dee he is just so perfect for the character

MERYL STREEP for PERENELLE she suits my imagined figure of perenelle perfectly

Welcome shadow yes i agree to a point, without a doubt the people that haven't read the books will have missed out on a great treat, but we can hope that the film will inspire them to seek out and buy the books too! And if you have read the books before a film is made, if the casting directors get it right it can really add to the whole experience..i think Dan Radcliff and co in the Potter films are a great example of that!

Freddie Highmore for Josh? He's 16 this year, so if it take too long he might be a little old, but if it were done soon, I think he would be a great choice for Josh - although I guess he is a little on the small side to thinks of someone who played football.... but I like him enough that I could overlook that discrepancy between film and book.

I just thought of a potential problem for the movies.... So the entire series of 6 books takes place over 1 month of time but its probably going to take them years to film the movies, so how in the world are they going to keep the actors playing the twins looking their age in the book after so many years will pass between films (thats assuming they make more than the first one which i hope they are good and they do)

makeup.

lots and lots of makeup.

but in actuality, they will just cast people that are in their early twenties that just look young. They'll look the same for years while the movie films.

That's exactly why hollywood uses 20-somethings to play the teenagers in movies and tv shows, becuase 20somethings don't age over years.

If I shave I go from looking to be in my late twenties to looking like I'm in my mid-late teens.

I agree with the whole makeup thing, but still .. It would be hard trying to use the same young actors, because in a few short years, facial features change quite a bit, so can makeup really hide stuff like that ?
Oh my god ! I think Malcolm McDowell would be perfect for Flamel !
And I LOVE Hugh Laurie, but I really don't see him fitting any character from the books . Sorry guys

Never worry or apologise for disagreeing with another member's opinion (except mine...lol..j/k) the fact that we all have different takes on the story and characters is the very essence that makes for interesting chats! flamelssecret/dance.gif flamelssecret/clap3.gif

Which why I made the point of using actors in their early twenties. You don't get the changes.

That couldn't have worked with something like the Potter films because the kids HAD to be really young to start the series. But a 15-16 year old can easily be played by someone in their early 20s with a baby face.
