Sarah Quigley's "TMI"

Sarah Quigley is the author of TMI, her first YA novel.

Here she shares her casting preferences for a big screen adaptation of the novel:
Most of these actors are much older than the characters in my book, but Stockard Channing played Rizzo in Grease when she was 33. If Paramount Pictures can take that much chronological liberty, so can I.

Becca: Jena Malone (Mary from Saved! and Lydia from Pride & Prejudice)

Katie: Martha MacIsaac (Becca from Superbad)

Jai: Lucas Grabeel (Ryan from High School Musical)

Evan: Paul Dano (Dwayne from Little Miss Sunshine)

Matt: Jonathan Bennett (Aaron from Mean Girls)

Annie, Becca’s mom: Julianne Moore

Dale, Becca’s stepdad: Brad Pitt (ooh, I can picture him with those little round glasses)

Nathan: Knox Jolie-Pitt (not technically an actor and not quite old enough, but he would be by the time filming began)
