If you were casting a movie, who would you cast as the lead characters?
In the book I think that Jack is very respected, caring, and brave so for the actor I would choose Nathan Gamble. Nathan Gamble is famous for his role as Sawyer in Dolphin Tale(2) in Dolphin Tale Nathan was very caring, he took care of Winter, the injured dolphin until she was healthy and even after. In the movie Sawyer went into the aquarium were Winter was being held just to make sure she was okay, even though there were signs saying not to, I think this relates to when Jack had step onto the ice to help Joseph out when he fell in. In the book Jack is very respected by all the adults, in the movie Sawyer proves that he should be respected by creating a big event to make money and save the aquarium and the animals.
I think Joseph has a bad boy air about, frustrated, and he also seems like he doesn't care about anything. I would have Josh Wiggins be the actor who plays Joseph, Josh is known as Justin Wincott in Max, in the beginning of Max, Justin seems like he doesn't care. when he is told to take care of Max (a dog from Afghanistan) he only does what his parents force him to do and he doesn't seem to care about the dog. Justin also seems like a bad boy, he sells copyrighted video games to his friends and at the end of the movie he takes down the "bad guys." Justin is also frustrated, in the movie Justin's dad and brother were U.S Marines and in the movie it hinted that his dad wanted Justin to also be a U.S Marine.
Who do you think are the main characters in the book? Who would you cast in your movie? Who is your favorite character in the book?
