The latest John Green adaptation, Paper Towns, just hit theaters this weekend, but everyone is already thinking about casting for the next one, Looking For Alaska. Fans will be happy to know that they have begun looking at actors, and The Wrap reports that we have frontrunners for the roles of Miles Halter and Alaska Young.
Director Rebecca Thomas was reportedly in New York last week auditioning for the leads. It is said that she has come close to her decision, and hopefully fans will know who they are soon. The studio was interested in big names to play the leads but Thomas has no problem casting a relatively unknown.
He has some competition in actor Mitchell Hope, who is starring in the upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie, Descendants about the teenage children of Disney’s villains, heroes and royals who all attend the same prep school. Support Mitchell Here>>
Anya Taylor-Joy is the front runner for the titular role of Alaska Young. She made her film debut in the Sundance hit The Witch and her performance received great reviews. Support Anya Here >>
