Ally Condie Talks Matched Movie Fancasts

Just Jared Jr. recently covered Reached in their book club, at which time they unleashed a great quote from Ally Condie that was previously published in Entertainment Weekly. It’s all about her favorite fancasts for the upcoming Matched movie!

Here’s her take on it all:

Nathan Fillion

“I’m 34, so I’m mostly thinking about whose dad Nathan Fillion could play. [Laughs] A lot of fans have been sending pictures of actors. I just saw Logan Lerman in The Perks of Being a Wallflower. A lot of fans have mentioned him, and I was kind of dying because he’s the cutest thing ever — he would be a great Ky. Also, Nina Dobrev from The Vampire Diaries.”

We wouldn’t be opposed to the inclusion of Nathan Fillion, either!

If you want to ask Ally more questions about the books or her fancasts, submit them in the comments here as we’ll be interviewing her in two days!
