    The giver is my 2nd fave book of all time after the bible. Ive been hearing bout a movi3 since at least 04 and im glad jeff Bridges is still attached

    So they hired a 24-year-old to play a 12-year-old. Seriously? I know we tend to cast older for people playing teens, but that’s ridiculous.

    I’m with Scheebles here. What’s so threatening about an adult fighting the power. There used to be a time when kids could fight back without being turned into “Hunger Games” clones.

    The other kid in the headline photo looks like the perfect choice for Jonas! Unbelievable casting

    • scheebles

      I would’ve preferred Tye Sheridan myself. He was amazing in Mud.

        Dylan Sprayberry would’ve been the best pick out of the actors considered. His age is the most relative to Jonas’s and he also has the correct eye color.
