Casting is underway yet again for The Host! Saoirse Ronan, star of The Lovely Bones, Hanna, and Oscar-Nominated for Atonement, will be playing Melanie / Wanderer, in the story where Wanderer, an alien, has taken over Melanie’s mind. The two central male characters are now being cast, according to Variety.
Testing for Jared: Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games), Kit Harington (Game of Thrones), Jai Courtney (Spartacus: Blood and Sand), and Max Irons (Red Riding Hood). Testing for Ian: Dane DeHaan (In Treatment), Thomas McDonnell (Prom), Augustus Prew (The Borgias), and Jake Abel (The Lovely Bones).
