Several Male Actors Being Considered for Stephanie Meyer’s The Host

Several Male Actors Being Considered for Stephanie Meyer’s The Host

Waaaay back in May, it was announced that “Hanna” star Saoirse Ronan was cast as Melanie Stryder in Stephenie Meyer’s upcoming adaptation of her novel “The Host”.

Variety now reports that several actors are being considered for the lead male roles that includes Liam Hemsworth (“The Hunger Games”), Kit Harington (“Game of Thrones”), Jai Courtney (“One Shot”) and Max Irons (“Red Riding Hood”) who will test for the role of Jared, Melanie’s boyfriend.

Meanwhile, Dane DeHaan (“In Treatment”), Thomas McDonnell (“Prom”), Augustus Prew (“The Borgias”) and Ronan’s “Lovely Bones” co-star Jake Abel will test for the role of Ian, a menacing young man who brutalizes Wanderer before falling in love with her.

Here’s the novel’s synopsis via Amazon:

Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of human hosts while leaving their bodies intact. Wanderer, the invading “soul” who has been given Melanie’s body, didn’t expect to find its former tenant refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

As Melanie fills Wanderer’s thoughts with visions of Jared, a human who still lives in hiding, Wanderer begins to yearn for a man she’s never met. Reluctant allies, Wanderer and Melanie set off to search for the man they both love.

Featuring one of the most unusual love triangles in literature, THE HOST is a riveting and unforgettable novel about the persistence of love and the essence of what it means to be human.
