actors for uglies and pretties
« on: January 01, 2015, 07:07:40 PM »

I believe they should have unknown actors and keep the same actors for uglies and pretties, almost like they do in gattica when they transform the guy to a way better version of himself physically.

I agree with that entirely. Mainly because well-known actors are usually quite attractive. I'd say that the cast should be pretty much normal-looking people.
Of course, it probably won't be ._.

Im not going to lie, all I want to do is email the producer (whom ever it may be) and beg to be Tally. Who ever the actress is better be good at her.

Still every Pretty must be CGI-ied in order to really look like the pretties in the book.

Yea, I really hope they took normal-looking actors for the Uglies. And also they should look like the're really fiveteen and not some young adults like in Panem.
But I would also prefer if there would be new actors for the roles in Pretties and Specials. I mean, the operation changes your appearance very much.
