A fancasting list for Hazel Grace Lancaster for THE FAULT IN OUR STARS film?

Hypable has brought up an interesting list of fancast choices for the role of Hazel Grace in the upcoming The Fault In Our Stars’ movie.  Let’s see what they have on their list, shall we?

Emma Watson

Emma Watson has proven that she is a diverse actress ready to take on a leading lady role outside that of Hermione Granger. Her turn in ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ has proven Emma can take on tough roles and make them her own. She also has the intellectual presence as well as the sassiness to play Hazel. While she probably won’t be most people’s first choice, Emma Watson has a lot to offer the role.

Mae Whitman

Mae Whitman has had a diverse career that started at the age of six. Her first film was ‘When a Man Loves a Woman’ and since that time Mae has been in numerous movies and TV shows as well as voiced characters such as Tinker Bell. Mae’s most current role is on ‘Parenthood’ where she plays a sassy, snarky teen. Mae is definitely up for the challenge of playing Hazel and her looks fit the description of Hazel making a solid choice.

Sami Gayle

Sami Gayle is a relative unknown. She can currently be seen on ‘Blue Bloods’ playing Nicki Reagan-Boyle, the granddaughter of Captain Reagan played by Tom Selleck. Sami certainly has the look of Hazel. Even though she has a smaller resume than the others she brings a lot of talent to the table. Sami has an emotional range to her acting that would suit Hazel.

Hailee Steinfeld

Hailee Steinfeld first burst on to the scene in ‘True Grit’ playing opposite Matt Damon and stealing scenes. She is also no stranger to adaptations considering she just finished filming ‘Ender’s Game’ and ‘Romeo and Juliet.’ Steinfeld has the acting chops to take on the role of Hazel and she also fits the age range. Steinfeld is on the brink of being the next big teen star, playing Hazel could be the ultimate role for her.

Abigail Breslin

Abigail Bresslin began her career at age six in M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Signs.’ Since that time she has been in over 30 movies and television shows. Abigail was nominated for an Oscar for her role in ‘Little Miss Sunshine.’ Abigail has certainly proven ability to play diverse roles and could bring a quirkiness to the role of Hazel. Abigail also has experience working in films about cancer and would bring that knowledge to the role.

Now that you’ve seen our choices for Hazel who do you think should play her? Also, be on the look out for our Augustus casting choices.

I can’t say these actresses aren’t capable of playing the demanding emotional role, however, for me, none of them really sticks out as the one.  Of course, I’m not sure if I’d be able to find such a various group of actresses.  I can certainly try!
