    This thread is obviously quite dead but I thought I'd give it go anyway.

    I've been thinking Alona Tal for Karolina. She could play a teen and all she'd need were some blue contacts. Certainly the right build and look imho.

    I don't know about acting ability but on looks and age alone I'd pick Adair Tishler for Molly Hayes.

    Other people's picks for Gert look good but I'd also suggest Alia Shawkat:

    Any thoughts?

    no thanks. i just know they'll screw it up. Vaughn will have to be heavily involved.

    But Runaways is a story about teenagers. Granted Spider-Man was a teenager in the first movie, but it was more about him becoming a hero. Runaways is a story about a bunch of kids. I'd say, the highest age for the cast should only be 20-21.

    so she has to be 16 for you to be able to believe the movie is about teenagers? despite that Thora can pull off the look and can act well?

    you fanboys are morons.

    Except for the fact that she can't.

    Don't get me wrong, years ago she would've been the perfect choice (and hell, she looks dead on like an older Gert in Ghost World), and she might be able to pull of younger, but not 16.

    "You fanboys"? Really now... :whatever:

    Way to be an mature about it, pal. The fact is, that this girl couldnt play Gert in her wildest dreams. Get over it.

    Now, Tina Majorino is a much better choice.

    The whole casting 25 as a 16 year old is bull**** because if this was some romantic teen comedy the reaction would be "great more adults playing way under their age"

    And with Spiderman he was only 16 for a few scenes and then got to a point where he played an age ambiguous young adolescent, if not Harry would have only been 20-21 while running OsCorp in the second movie. The exact age didnt matter in Spidey after highschool.

    I thought Nico was "Japanese by way of Glendale." I believe Ms. Belle is half-Brazillian

    I think there should be no big names for the characters. Each are known for various projects.

    Alex - Percy Daggs III
    [​IMG]
    Karolina - Emily Vancamp
    [​IMG]
    Gertrude - Thora Birch... even though she's late 20's... she would be perfect.

    Chase - Ryan Donowho

    Molly and Nico should be an unknown or something. I have no clue who to choose. I hope they don't hire any Disney "actors" because most can't act.

    She definitely looks the part, but how good is her American accent?

    While I agree that he isn't skinny, I don't really see a jock build on him. He seems just regularly built.

    My cast...

    Percy Daggs III for Alex Wilder (The only choice, IMO)
    [​IMG]

    Brenda Song for Nico Minoru (I think that, if she tried something that wasnt Disney crap, she could this very well.)
    [​IMG]

    Blake Lively for Karolina Dean (scoff if you want, but I can actually really see her as a good Karolina.)
    [​IMG]

    Tina Majorino for Gertrude Yorkes (She's the voice I hear in my head when I read Gert's dialogue.)
    [​IMG]

    Chris Lowell for Chase Stein (yeah, thats the third Veronica Mars actor, so what?!)
    [​IMG]

    Adair Tishler for Molly Hayes (still pretty undecided about this. AT just seems like the only young actress I could trust with the movie.)

    I like your choices for Chase and Karolina, but you really messed up the ages on Alex and Molly.
