That would actually be kinda cool. I don't think that she's the ideal role for Cable, but definitely interesting.

Dakota Fanning is sort of played out to me, sorry.  She's rapidly exiting that adorable ostentatious wise-beyond-her-years innocent stage of naivety that off of which she built her career.

(Fun Facts, btw;  You're playing Trivial Pursuit...the question  is about the youngest Oscar Winner...idk about you, but if I didn't know anything else I would guess Dakota, thinking it was a good possibility.  ERRR!!!!  It's Tatum O'Neil, who was 10 years of age in paper moon, (never saw it either), closely followed by True Blood's Anna Paquin-  Sookie herself!  She was 11 when she starred in The Piano. The youngest winner for the Actor category is only an ancient 20!  huh.   Anyway, all this useless stuff can be verified on the Acadamy's nifty Database.

http://awardsdatabase.oscars.org/ampas_awards/help/helpMain.jsp?helpContentURL=statistics/indexStats.html   
Oh, and poor Dakota has Goose Egg for Oscar Nods, all together, ever,  Thank goodness there's Breaking Dawn...she still has a chance!  haha.)

SNL did some funny skits of her, one was when Abigail Breslin was on the show.  They make fun of how she tries to be so much older than she is.  Obvi overblown, but it's sort of how she portrays herself.  You know, she fancies herself a "serious ACTOR", like Ellen Page and Kristen Stewart.  Perhaps they're in a club of some sorts?  Delusional Starlett's Guild?

 http://www.hulu.com/watch/19305/saturday-night-live-the-dakota-fanning-show

She has an awesome me resume at her age...only the Olsen Twins could compare, probably...amazing costars ie Queen Latifa, Brittney Murphey (RIP Tai!) Denzel Washington, Reese Witherspoon, Top Cruise, and everyone she ever worked with on voice-over (Bolt, Charlotte's Web, etc.) and we can't possibly forget the incredible Sean Penn, in the tear-jerker that started it all!

Typecasting hard at work in Hollywood.  Just look at what it's done for Micheal Cera!  And Jessie Eisenburg  (Sp) too...that's given that I'm not alone in my inability to tell him and Mike Cera apart.

But now, she's going through that pre-teen awkward stage.  Gawd that's awful for most everyone, famous or not.  In fact, I'm afraid that once my kids reach that age, I might love their little illegitimate, pimply, orthodontia-needing, sweaty selves a little less, at least til they grow back into being attractive. 
But Dakota, now I think she's gonna look way different once she gets out on the other side of this...she's already beginning too, in my opinion.   I hope she is flexible enough in her acting to potentially play a role that doesn't call for a witty, blonde adolescent.  Maybe she can call Drew Barrymore for advice on how to rock that kiddy-star -that-STAYS thing... (Lesson 1 Exhibit A What not to Do: Lindsey Lohan  :)


And finally, I don't think she should play Tally because:
A-  In my mind, it's not a good fit AT ALL
B-  She's already in Twilight.  I think this role needs a fresh face that's not attached to anything pre-conceived.

And all jokes aside, a wish the tyke the best, even though she was a millionaire at like, FIVE, I'm not going to hate.  I hope she keeps her little perky nose clean and out of rehab, as well as out of any home-made cinema.  Also, the Uglies movies.

For some reason, I picture Tally Asian.

I love Dakota Fanning BUT I think Uglies needs actors and actresses that aren't already mega famous.

honestly i might see it but if there was auditions i'd love to be Tally all my friends at school and of course me love the books and they all say i would be perfect...of course thats very unlikely lmao but my thoughts . America Ferrera should play Tally and Chloe Bridges for Shay, maybe Paul Westley for David, Zac Effron for Peris, and for Zane....Craig Horner XD those are pretty Legit characters and maybe Dr. Cable could be the mom from Two and a Half men

No No No No No she is nothing like Tally I will be so mad if they cast her for the part.  (No offence to any one who wants her to play the part)

I don't see her as a Tally...she doesn't seem to fit her at all in my opinion...but what about Emily Browning? *facepalm* I think she has a good look for Tally...but I've only seen her in 1 movie so I don't feel completely comfortable vouching for acting epic enough to capture Tally...sorry for ranting...I'm done
