Who I’d cast

I’m the kind of person who likes to imagine actors and people I know as characters in books I read. Naturally, I have done the same with Horn-Horn. Here is who, in a perfect world, would be cast today.

Cassie: Hailee Steinfeld

Annie: Elle Fanning

Brendan: A young Alex D. Linz (he has and always will be the only Brendan)

Lesley: Caroline Rhea

Ichabod: Eric Stonestreet

Eleanore: Jessica Alba

Hayley: Kathryn Newton

JT: (a much younger) Marlon Wayans Jr.

Greg: (a much younger) Tom Welling

Ms. Weiss: Betty White (Golden Girls era)

Eric Parker: Larry Miller

Tanya Tanner: Elisha Cuthbert (I actually expanded the role after seeing her in 24)

Chloe Croxley: Joan Cusack

Candice Croxley: Rachel Weisz

Ms. Berry: Olivia Colman

Pothosia: Reese Witherspoon

Ursula: Laura Dern

Duke Wilson: Robert Duvall

So there you have it! In case you needed some help imagining them, that’s where I’m at in picturing them in 2019.
