Michael Malarkey: 'The Selection's New Prince Maxon!

Meet the new Prince Maxon — Michael Malarkey!

According to THR, the English actor will play the role vacated by Ethan Peck for the CW pilot opposite Yael Grobglas.

Maxon is the charming, self-serving and untrustworthy son of the king and queen who are not pleased with his reckless behavior. He’s thrilled to have a group of young women competing for his affections and is intrigued by the feisty labor class girl America.

Set 300 years in the future, The Selection is billed as an epic romance centering on a working class young woman chosen by lottery to participate in a competition with 25 other ladies for Prince Maxon’s hand to become the nation’s next queen.

So, The Selection by Kiera Cass is being turned into a TV show. Maybe. Maxon is my favorite character because he’s sweet and kind and respectful and a little shy, with a need to protect people, like Peeta. I just read a piece of the script. HE’S NOTHING LIKE HE IS IN THE BOOK. He’s some . . . some . . . disgusting, disturbing spoiled brat who thinks women are his play toys! “Maxon is the charming, self-serving and untrustworthy son of the king and queen who are not pleased with his reckless behavior. He’s thrilled to have a group of young women competing for his affections and is intrigued by the feisty labor class girl America.”
WHAT. JUST. WHAT. HOW DARE THEY. I WILL FIND THEM AND BUTTERKNIFE THEM IN THE EYE AFTER I GO ALL CATO ON THEM. THIS IS MY LIFE THEY ARE MESSING WITH. SELF-SERVING? OH, C’MON. “Thrilled to have a group of young women competing for his affections. . .” NUH-UH. NO HE WAS NOT. HE SAID IT WAS TERRIBLE, HAVING THE COUNTRY WATCH HIM AS HE DATING 30+ WOMEN AT THE SAME TIME. JUST, WHAT. HOW COULD YOU TAKE IT AWAY. WHAT THEY ARE DOING IS STEALING THE CHARACTERS AND MAKING THEIR OWN PLOT.

@dnc: Pretty sure the directors and script writers read a completely different book. Maybe some kind of spin-off of Twilight or something, but definitely not the book I read.
