Take a Look at the Frontrunners For the Leads in ‘Looking For Alaska’

Actors Charlie Rowe and Anya Taylor-Joy

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.

      She got rave reviews at Sundance, so she is clearly very talented. If she does get the role, I’m sure we’ll all be pleasantly surprised.
