Dream Cast for Afterparty

My two absolutely favorite young female actors are Jennifer Lawrence and Shailene Woodley. I think they can play anyone, so if either of them wanted to play virtually any part in Afterparty, I would say, "Go for it!" but I hear they're busy, soooooo moving right along, ignoring their coloring and pretty much ignoring their ages...

Emma: Jane Levy
If you've seen her in Suburgatory, you know she could do it.

Siobhan: Chloe Moretz
Instense and as scary as you want her to be. Have you seen Kick-Ass?

Megan: Anna-Sophia Robb
I think she could do sweet and kind of suffocated, with a tiny little edge very well.

Chelsea Hay: Emma Roberts
I would love to see her doing mean.

Dr. Lazarus: Scott Cohen
I can totally see him as a buttoned-up, repressive dad with a dark past.

Aiden: Ian Somerhalder (maybe 15 years ago)
Just look at him. OK, now you can stop looking at him. Or can you?

Dylan: Ezra Miller
I visualized Dylan and Arif in a very particular way – not just the way they looked by the way they moves – as I writing and I'm having a really hard time coming up with actors to suit. I suspect that Ezra Miller could do a brilliant job of playing anyone, but he still doesn't look exactly like my mental image of Dylan. Who would you cast?

Thank you so much to Ann for stopping by my blog! I LOVE this cast. Honestly, would go see this movie in a heartbeat :D I still haven't read Afterparty, but it sound fabulous! Here's a little bit more about it:


Emma is tired of being good. Always the dutiful daughter to an overprotective father, she is the antithesis of her mother -- whose name her dad won't even say out loud. That's why meeting Siobhan is the best thing that ever happened to her...and the most dangerous. Because Siobhan is fun and alluring and experienced and lives on the edge. In other words, she's everything Emma is not.

And it may be more than Emma can handle. 

Because as intoxicating as her secret life may be, when Emma begins to make her own decisions, Siobhan starts to unravel. It's more than just Dylan, the boy who comes between them. Their high-stakes pacts are spinning out of control. Elaborate lies become second nature. Loyalties and boundaries are blurred. And it all comes to a head at the infamous Afterparty, where debauchery rages and an intense, inescapable confrontation ends in a plummet from the rooftop... 

This explosive, sexy, and harrowing follow-up to Ann Redisch Stampler's spectacular teen debut, Where It Began, reveals how those who know us best can hurt us most.

  1. Hi Rabiah,
    Thank you so much for participating in Jean Book Nerd's blog tour for Afterparty, and posting my dream cast! I hope you'll enjoy the book. When you've read it, I'd love to know the people you'd cast, particularly if you can think of an "Aiden" of the correct age, and the actors you think would be right to play "Dylan" and "Arif."
    All the best,


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I'll try to visit your blog (if you have one) and comment back!
