JJJ Book Club: Casting Ally Condie's 'Matched' Series

In case you missed it, Ally Condie‘s “Reached” was our November pick for the JJJ Book Club — and now we can’t help but dream of the perfect cast for the film adaption…and it looks like Ms. Condie is dreaming too.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the author spoke of the film adaption and her dream cast for the characters in her books.

“I’m 34, so I’m mostly thinking about whose dad Nathan Fillion could play. [Laughs] A lot of fans have been sending pictures of actors. I just saw Logan Lerman in The Perks of Being a Wallflower. A lot of fans have mentioned him, and I was kind of dying because he’s the cutest thing ever — he would be a great Ky. Also, Nina Dobrev from The Vampire Diaries,” she shared.

Ms. Condie added about the final book for the fans: “I’m hoping they’ll feel satisfied with the end of the series, but I’m anticipating some sorrow. I hope that means that I’ve done my job right. Team Ky and Team Xander are fun, but I wanted readers to root for both. I never wanted it to be either-or. I think that both of them — even though it won’t be easy for some fans — do get what they need.”

WHO WOULD YOU cast as Cassia, Ky and Xander?

Nina is too told looking tbh. They need someone younger or at least someone who looks younger and could pass for a teenager. Nina can’t.

I still remember the day I got my ‘Matched’ ARC. I was so excited for this new dystopian series, the hype was huge and the growing fandom was awaiting with eager hands, and now… it’s about to end.

Logan Lerman is a beautiful Jewish boy.

No. I’d rather have Lily Collins for Cassia and someone more tanned with black/dark hair for Ky.

I’d love to have Logan Lerman for Ky, Lily Collins for Cassia and Alex Pettyfer for Xander :)

Logan Lerman and Nina Dobrev would be perfect for Ky and Cassia ! And Nathan Fillion should play the father of Cassia !
