The 17-year-old Ender’s Game star would join Eva Green who has been cast as the title role of Miss Peregrine.

    NO, Jared: It’s “Miss Peregrine’s Home for PECULIAR Children.”

    If they were “imaginary” children, I don’t think they’d have to cast anybody for the children’s roles. We could all just… imagine them.

    (I’m assuming, of course, that the studio isn’t changing the name of the book. If they are, then I give up.)

    First of all, it’s “Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children” not Imaginary. Second, although he looks a little different than who I imagined as Jacob, I think hes a good fit :) As for Eva Green, I think shes a little too young to play Mrs.Peregrine.
