I don't know what to think about Boyd Holbrook playing Kyle. He doesn't look Kyle-ish imo. If his body looked like... like Chris Hemsworth's he would be ok... hmmm... we'll see in the movie, he probably works on his body while I'm writing this. ;o)
Haha I was thinking the same thing! Hopefully he'll buff up his body! :P
But i was also thinking that Boyd and Jake dont look alike.. and with the black hair they'll even look more different and Ian and Kyle are almost exact copies of each other so :/
Lol. Maybe he does. I know I said the same thing when I saw his pictures. BC Kyle had a killing body in the books. Hopefully he went big time work out like Taylor did for New Moon!
Yeah im hoping so too or then that would be the first disappointment lol
Of all people, E! has a positive article posted on the upcoming film, “The Host.” Lots of props for Saoirse Ronan for the Twilight-hating crowd over at E! (perhaps because all the Twi-hating drove Twilight fans away).
By the way, Saoirse’s name is pronounced “SERsheh ROnin” Here is how she hasexplained her name:
On her name, she said, “‘Searsha’ is how Irish people pronounce my first name, but I would pronounce it ‘Sersha,’ like ‘inertia’. It’s Irish for ‘freedom.’ I recently found out that my middle name, Una, means ‘unity’ in Ireland. And I think my last name means ‘seal.’ So I’m a free, unified seal.”
In other news, Saoirse’s parents were, apparently, homeschooling, actor, globe-jaunting, quasi-hippies. And God bless them, nothing wrong with that, just noting it. Freedom and unity and other good things for Ireland!
Meanwhile, drum beats sound sound across the pop culture jungle for the upcoming “Host.” Here’s what E! had to say about why “The Host” will be awesome.
1. The Leading Lass Has Mega Talent: Haven’t heard of Saoirse Ronan? Well cement that Irish name in your brain, because Ronan is an acting force to be reckoned with. She appeared alongside Keira Knightley in Atonement and was nominated for an Academy Award for her role at the young age of 13. Saoirse also starred in The Lovely Bones and most recently the action flick Hanna. Quite an impressive résumé, no? Kristen Stewart, you’ve certainly got some competition.
2. Get Ready for Lots of Sci-Fi Action: If the teaser trailer is any indication, we’re gearing up for a supernatural sensation. And while the preview keeps things mysterious, we do know the movie follows Mel (Ronan), whose body becomes inhabited by the Wanderer alien and she must fight for control of her mind. “It is no longer your world,” Ronan whispers in the trailer as we watch a quick flash of alien-inhabited humans. Intrigued yet? We’re certainly excited to see more.
3. Shocker! There’s a Love Triangle: It wouldn’t be a Stephenie Meyer film if there was no angst-ridden, over-the-moon, utterly unrealistic love story, right? Well, duh, and this film won’t disappoint. It’s far more complicated than whether Bella prefers a werewolf or a vampire, but expect an alien love triangle complete with Meyer’s cheesy one-liners we love.
4. The Book’s as Big as Twilight: True, The Host has hardly garnered as much buzz as the Twilight juggernaut, but the novel itself is churning out equally impressive Twi-esque stats. It spent 26 weeks as No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller list and also spent over 36 weeks on the Los Angeles Times best-seller list. Forget Fifty Shades of Grey! Apparently The Host is the book to read. And lucky for you loyal S.M. fans, Ms. Meyer said she wants to turn the story into a trilogy. Shocker.
5. The Film’s Following in Twilight’s Footsteps: Turns out Baton Rouge has gotten a double dose of Stephenie Meyer—much of The Host filming took place where Breaking Dawn was first filmed. A few other on-set deets? Stephen Rider (who plays Seeker Reed in the flick) recently tweeted they have “all” read the book and said he sees Stephenie on set “almost every day.” Rider also dished that the “cast is stellar” and it’s “truly an amazing experience.” What? No Twilight style drama? Oh well, at least there’s one more Breaking Dawn film to keep that goss coming.
The other thing that I would add is that the director and screen writer for “The Host” is the well-respected and Oscar-nominated Andrew Niccol, who also wrote and/or directed “The Truman Show” and “Gattaca,” wonderful, thought-provoking films which coincidentally I used to help teach from at a university — in a former life so to speak. And when you’re talking about “The Host,” former lives are always relevant to the present one. More on that later.
An hour outside of Albuquerque, N.M., on the rocky edge of a small, picturesque canyon, Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds) is squinting into the sun. She’s flanked by two sleek, silver sports cars, and her eyes are ringed with an eerie, iridescent circle. They’re both signs that Kruger is playing The Seeker — a dogged member of the police force of an alien species called Souls, who have successfully invaded our planet by literally invading our bodies. She’s looking for Wanderer (Hanna‘s Saoirse Ronan, pictured with costar Max Irons), a member of her race who, aptly, has wandered off into the desert after the consciousness of her human host, Melanie, cajoled Wanderer into finding what’s left of Melanie’s human family. The Seeker is also keenly set on finding this rag-tag cluster of the remains of humanity, but for very different reasons. “We find her,” Kruger (as The Seeker) mutters to herself, “we find the threat.”
Fans of Stephenie Meyer’s 600-plus-page novel have likely already gathered from the description above that film interpretation of The Seeker is almost the exact opposite of how she’s described in the book. Instead of small, dark-haired, and clad mostly in black, the very blonde Kruger stands regally on some serious wedge heels, dressed in a futuristic cream-colored pant suit. It’s a change designed by writer-director Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, In Time) to reflect the “purity” of the egalitarian Souls, and Meyer told me on the set that she happily embraced it. Gattaca is her favorite sci-fi film of all time.
As for the delightful Ronan, although she wasn’t working that day, she came out to the set to speak with EW about the film, one day after the Oscar-nominated Irish actress turned 18. We’ll have video of our interviews with her, Meyer, Kruger, and Irons in the coming months — the movie, which is still shooting, isn’t hitting theaters until March 29, 2013, after all — but I can tell you how Ronan is differentiating the alien Wanderer from the internal voice of Melanie in the film. It’s actually quite simple: The Wanderer speaks with a generic American accent, whereas Melanie’s voice is inflected with a Louisiana twang, another Meyer-approved tweak from the book.
But this seeker, in the book, is not as pure. shes different like wanderer and all the seekers are considered the ones who handle the difficult tasks in this peaceful alien society. so id think they should stick with the black because it works with the seekers personality.
In the meantime, shooting on The Host is going awesomely--and quickly. I can't believe we're almost done. Things are looking fairly extraordinary and I cannot wait to see what Andrew Niccol will do with all this amazing footage. However, I am not ready to be done because I am not ready to give up Saoirse, who I would happily adopt by force if I didn't like her parents so much, and if she wasn't legally an adult. (By the way, for those who have asked about pronunciation, Saoirse rhymes with "inertia.")
