Mae Whitman Joins 'Wallflower'; Lincoln Lewis in Talks?

Mae Whitman has just joined The Perks of Being A Wallflower opposite Emma Watson and Logan Lerman, Variety) reports.

The 22-year-old actress will play the tattooed vegetarian first girlfriend of Charlie (Lerman) while Emma will take the role of Sam, an older friend that Charlie develops feelings for.

Aussie actor Lincoln Lewis is also in talks, according to a recent interview with the Courier Mail. He shared, “I had a really good call-back audition.”

Lincoln actually tested with casting agents for Perks earlier this month, just a day before he was due to leave, and scored a hastily organised call-back with [author] Stephen Chbosky only hours before boarding a flight home to Brisbane.

Production is set to start at the end of May in Pittsburgh.

    I really hope that if that Lincoln guys gets a part, that it isn’t Patrick. He doesn’t fir the role. He could play Brad though, or Bob.

    Awesome! So far the casting is perfect! Emma, Logan, and Mae are all brilliant actors. And I’ve also heard that Paul Rudd is being considered for a role in the film.

    Not sure about Lincoln Lewis for Patrick. But I wouldn’t mind as long as the author thinks his right for the role and does an amazing performance as Patrick.
