We like the idea of Liam Hemsworth being in Stephenie Meyere’s movie “The Host,” but we’re not sure we like the role he might take. Stephenie Meyer penned the “Twilight” series and another book called “The Host.” We read the book and really liked it, but word is that Liam is up for the role of Jared – the boyfriend of the lead character in the movie, well, before an alien soul takes over her body and she isn’t quite the same person anymore. The lead character’s name is Melanie, and she will be played by Saoirse Ronan.
Other actors up for the role of Jared are Kit Harrington, Jai Courtney and Max Irons. Also, here are the actors up for the role of Ian – Thomas McDonnell (Disney’s “PROM”), Augustus Prew and Jake Abel.
“The Host” will be directed by Andrew Niccol and is set to release to theaters on March 29, 2013.
Have you read the book? Who do you think should play the role of Jared? We think it would be awesome if Liam and his brother Chris Hemsworth played the roles of brothers Ian and Kyle!
