The Die Is Cast #4: Along For The Ride by Sarah Dessen

The Die Is Cast is a meme here @ Bookable Reads that is all about creating a cast of actors and actresses for a particular book that you've read or you're currently reading. And having fun doing so! Create them in your own way!

Ellen Philpotts-Page (born February 21, 1987),known professionally as Ellen Page, is a Canadian actress.Page received both Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations for Best Actress for her role as the title character in the film Juno. She won back-to-back Austin Film Critics Association Awards for Best Actress for her roles in Juno and Hard Candy. 

She is sooooo cute! Look at those doe-like eyes! I think Ellen is a terrific actress. Look at those awards she won and the nominations she has received! A testament to her acting talents!

Andrew James Matfin "Jamie" Bell (born 14 March 1986) is an English actor. He is best known for playing the title character in the film Billy Elliot (2000), for which he won the 2001 BAFTA Award for Best Actor. Since then he has played a mix of leading roles in small independent films and supporting roles in big budget films such as Peter Jackson's version of King Kong. 

I chose Jamie to play the role of Eli in view of the fact that I think he would most likely accept this role. Ellen is a bit of a HUGE name in Hollywood so it's a bit difficult to get her. Wow, I'm really into this casting business! Hahaha...

I haven't yet read Along for the Ride, but judging from the synopsis, I think Ellen Page would be great. I loved her in Juno!
