Ian O'Shea and Jared Howe Cast in The Host Movie!


We finally have the three main characters in The Host cast!

First, Saoirse Ronan was cast a Melanie Stryder/Wanderer, a human and a soul inhabiting the same body.

Then, Jake Abel was cast as Ian O'Shea, one of the few surviving humans on Earth.

Now, Max Irons has been cast as Jared Howe, Melanie's lost love.

This would be great if Max Irons and Jake Abel would just switch roles! No, really, I'm excited to finally have a cast for this movie. After two years it was getting to the point where i was like, "Just cast somebody already! I don't care who." But I wasn't expecting them to teenage-ify the cast! The characters were older in the book, 20's and 30's, so why couldn't they have kept it that way?

But even forgetting about the age of the characters (considering these actor's are older then they look), I just can't picture Jake Abel playing Ian. Max Irons is fine, I think he'll be good as Jared. But I'm just not sure about Jake. Unless of course they plan on casting Jensen Ackles as Kyle O'Shea, then I agree one hundred percent with them casting Jake as Ian!

I guess we'll have to wait until the trailer before we find out if these three are up to the task of playing some of my favorite characters.

So what do you think? Do you like The Host's younger cast? Or will you still picture someone else as Ian, Jared, and Melanie?


  1. SQUEE!
    I love Saoirse Ronan, she's brilliant, and I've liked her ever since City Of Ember. She'll do brilliantly, but she's SO not how I pictured Melanie. More how I pictured Wanda after she got her new body...
    Nevertheless, I lvoe the casting :D

  2. I have yet to read The Host so I'm not sure what to think about the cast. But I agree I don't like when they change things such as the age of characters. It can be annoying.

  3. I guess I need to read the book at some point. ;) I've always been interested in it, just got Meyer-ed out after the Twilight series!

  4. I think I'm okay with Melanie. Not sure about the other two though. I always pictured them older, like they were in the book. Not sure why they changed that.

  5. Well I know Jake is 24 and Max is 25, so they fit the role of the characters a little more, but Ian is only 17 years old. She kind of isn't even legal to vote in the US let alone old enough to fill those shoes for the role.

    But her acting is superb so maybe they'll do something to make her look a little older for her role.

  6. NOOOOOOO!!!!!! this is soooooooooo racist! melanie is supposed to be drk skinned!! i am here having a rage becuz the person eho is melani is fair skinned!!!!!

  10. I was surprised with most of the cast choices. So far, the only ones who seems to fit the part are Willam Hurt and maybe max irons. Of course Jamie's charachter is cute and I think it will work, I pictured him older. The seeker's, kyle's and Ian's character's seem all wrong to me and I'm not sure about melanie's. I'm not knocking the actors/actresses at all- I'm sure they are good at what they do- they just wouldn't be my first pick for those parts if your going to base it on the book.


We love to read them. :)
