Blog Tour + Giveaway: Casting for Confessions of an Angry Girl


I'm super excited today to be a part of the promotional tour for Confessions of an Angry Girl, and I have the pleasure of  welcoming author Louise Rozett to the blog to share with us her picks for the cast should the book ever make the leap to big or small screen. There's also a fabulous giveaway attached to this tour, so be sure and check out the bottom of the post for details, and thanks for visiting Supernatural Snark Louise!

CONFESSIONS OF A CLOSET CASTING AGENT

There is nothing I like more than playing the casting game. Seriously. It is quite possibly my favorite pastime. And to be perfectly honest, I fancy myself a bit of an amateur casting agent. (I’m quite sure this drives real casting agents bonkers when they’re casting one of my plays.) Well, today is my chance to live the dream. For the duration of this post, I am going to pretend I’m as big time as casting greats Ellen Chenoweth and Sheila Jaffe and Juliet Taylor. Because here, right now, I am going to cast Confessions of an Angry Girl. Drum roll, please! (Nervous flutters in my stomach!
I feel like I’m actually about to put up a cast list in the hallway outside the drama department!)

The Dream Cast for Confessions of an Angry Girl

Rose Zarelli: Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass; Diary of a Wimpy Kid; Hugo)
I absolutely love Chloe. The first time I noticed her, in (500) Days of Summer, she stole a scene from Joseph Gordon Levitt. You know how hard that is to do? That guy is GOOD. But Chloe, who was probably around 10 or 11, was so funny and so surprising and so smart that I couldn’t take my eyes off her.

Jamie Forta: Jeremy Sumpter (Friday Night Lights; Soul Surfer)
Jeremy is (thus far) winning the informal like-or-repin contest I’ve got going on Pinterest. The board is called “Who Should Play Jamie Forta in Angry Girl?” My first choice would actually be Tim Riggins, but it’s sort of impossible to get a fictional character to show up on set and play someone else (and the actor who played Tim—Taylor Kitsch—is officially done playing high school guys at age 31). So I’d be thrilled to have Jeremy!

Angelo Martinez: Avan Jogia (Victorious)
Avan is actually the runner-up to play Jamie on the Pinterest board. But based on his work on Victorious, I actually think he would be a great Angelo. Angelo is my secret favorite—if I’d known Angelo in high school, I probably would have had a crush on him as well as on Jamie!

Tracy Gerren: Miranda Cosgrove (iCarly)
Miranda would be great for budding fashionista Tracy. It also might be a fun change for her to play someone who’s not always so nice, after playing super-sweet Carly for the last five years.

Regina Deladdo: Elizabeth Gillies (Victorious)
Okay, yes, apparently I’m planning on stealing away half the cast of Victorious. But the big question here is, would Elizabeth be willing to dye her beautiful dark hair BLOND to play mean-girl Regina? (BTW, I didn’t name Regina after the Mean Girls character—not intentionally, anyway. Perhaps my subconscious was at work there...)

And also, how about this: Tony Oller (Gigantic; As the Bell Rings) as Robert, Zoe Saldana (Star Trek; Avatar) as Ms. Maso (wouldn’t she be perfect as the gorgeous health class teacher who all the boys love?), Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air; The Departed) as Rose’s heartbroken and closed-off mother, and Andrew Lincoln (The Walking Dead; Love, Actually) as Rose’s dad in the flashbacks and dreams.

Okay. Sorry. I’ll stop now. It’s just...casting is SO MUCH FUN!

Who do you think would be great in Confessions of an Angry Girl? Post your answers on www.facebook.com/LouiseRozettAuthor, or tweet me @Louiserozett. Happy casting!


CONFESSIONS OF AN ANGRY GIRL


Freshman Rose Zarelli has rage issues.

First of all, her father lost his job, took work as a contractor in Iraq…and never came home.

Second, she likes the wrong guy and his super-intense, scary cheerleader girlfriend is now her nemesis.

Third, her fashionista best friend, Tracy, is suddenly infinitely cooler than she is—and talking about losing her virginity. (What?!)

Rose is ahead when it comes to studying for the PSAT, but she’s so far behind socially that she might as well be moving backward. She needs Tracy’s help choosing the right clothes, she likes all the wrong extracurricular activities, and she can’t even make a decision about which photo of her father to put on the memorial website she’s making (and hiding from her adolescent-shrink mother).

With her brother away at college and her mother always locked in her office with her messed-up teen patients, Rose struggles to get through each day without inflicting bodily harm on anyone.

  10. Haha I TOTALLY agree with all of these! I remember in Victorious Liz Gilles actually wore a blond wig and it actually looked pretty fitting on her O_O Although she was playing the clueless blonde instead of the mean blond. But I think that would be an awesome role for her to play and I can also kind of envision Avan as Angelo :D As a total Victorious fan and iCarly fan, I approve lol ;) Awesome post Louise and Jenny! :)

  13. Wow. I have this book on my Kindle and am planning to read it soon! It looks good and you're cast is epic. Chloe Grace Mortez is a very good actress, she's going to be in the remake of Carrie, when I saw that I was like: :OOOO

  38. This is one of the most fun guest posts I've ever seen! I love when authors share who they would cast as the characters in their books (I like to see if it matches who I pictured in my mind). However, since I haven't read this book yet, now when I do I'm going to see all these people in my mind, haha.

  41. Confessions of an Angry Girl sounds like a compelling read. I don't usually read much contemporary, but I've got to admit I'm curious because Rose just sounds relatable. I also love the cast-- not only for their acting skills but also because I actually know who they are! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I want to read the book so much! I mean, in contemporary you get snarky girls, lonely girls, princess-ish girls, but angry? Definitely want it.

  44. I swear, every time I see this cover I think it's a picture of my sister! Whoever this girl is she could be my sister's twin or something, it's kinda creepy. (I know you can't see her whole face but still!)

    I kinda want to read this book just because she looks like my sister...which has got to be the strangest reason to read a book ever lol.

  46. I believe you have an excellent second career as a casting agent! I still don't where your knowledge of all these people comes from, but excellent job. I just can't imagine Miranda Cosgrove as anything but sweet, but she started out as really mean on Drake and Josh. You probably wouldn't know this since you don't have kids, I know every episode by heart. She used to play really mean, evil jokes on her older brothers. And then play innocent to her parents who bought it.

    over other smoking methods for herbs. With a click of
