Casting the Doorknob Society

I’ve been told a number of times that the Doorknob Society Saga should be made into movies. With that in mind I decided to have a little fun and cast the Doorknob Society movie. I’ve only chosen three characters to cast I will do another post about more later.

Chloe Masters– The trick to casting Chloe will all be in finding the right attitude. She is tough without being overbearing and needs someone to pull that off.

Sasha Pieterse from the show Pretty Little Liars always seems to pop up when Chloe is discussed.

Elizabeth Gillies from the show Victorious has also been mentioned as she has the right attitude to pull off the character of Chloe Masters.

Maddie Hasson– (Updated from the comments below, thanks Michelle) After thinking about this I must say I think Maddie would be a perfect Chloe. I loved her in the Finder where she had attitude and was a wonderful actress. Perfect pick I think.

Jessica Grimm– Jess is the most beautiful women in the world of the Doorknob Society and is always dressed well and holds her self perfectly. She has one of the most compelling story arcs of all the characters.

Teresa Palmer has been in movies like I am Number Four, The Sorcerers Apprentice and Bedtime Stories. She has a wonderful look and could be a great Jess.

James Nightshade– This is by far the hardest part for me to cast as so many people have had casting suggestions for the part. Most of the names mentioned would be to old for the part but I will throw them out their anyway.

Eric Balfour from the show Haven has been mentioned.

Stephen Amell best known for his role as Green Arrow in the CW show Arrow is a frequent choice as well.

Alex Pettyfer is also mentioned often for the role, he starred in the movie I am Number Four as well as several others.

Let me know your thoughts on who should play what characters.

    That would be so awesome.. To see my FAVORITE books come to life in a movie!!!!

  2. I see Emma Thompson as Ms. True


    I see Maggie Smith as Grandma Grimm


    I am still thinking on the rest. I will post as I think of them.

  3. I think those are great choices!! Not sure about Chloe because I watch pretty little liars and can’t get Sasha’s character out of my head and they are so different. If Lucy hale had blond hair I could see her!

  4. Jess – Hayden Panettiere
    Chloe – Maddie Hasson
    Nightshade – Toby Hemingway

    I’ll come up with the others later 🙂

  5. Alex Pettyfer for Nightshade definitely!!!! I love Maddie Hasson as Chloe- that’s exactly how I pictured her!!!!
