Who Deserves the Lead in The Fault in Our Stars Movie?

Who Deserves the Lead in The Fault in Our Stars Movie?

By Jennifer Grudziecki

Being the gigantic John Green fans that you are, we're sure you guys all know that The Fault In Our Stars (AKA the most heartbreakingly brilliant book ever) is being made into a movie. The film already has a director (Josh Boone) and a tentative production date (this summer!), so now our favorite part of the movie-making process has begun: the casting rumors!

So far, two actresses are up for the role of Hazel: Shailene Woodley and Hailee Steinfeld.

You'll probably recognize Shailene, who's 21,from her role in The Secret Life of the American Teenager, but she's been working her way steadily up the acting ranks since she started on the show. She's even slated to play Mary-Jane in the next Spider-Man movie!

Hailee, on the other hand, is a bit younger (16, the same age as Hazel), but she's also got some serious film experience from True Grit and the upcoming Ender's Game movie.

We like both of these choices, but we're not totally sold. Who do you think should play Hazel Grace? And, more importantly, who should play Augustus??
