And the Shiver Audio Contest! The Movie Star Edition

Okay, and now the second contest. The promised contest for the Shiver audio books!

I've been asked approximately a million times who I was choose to play Sam and Grace if Shiver was made into a movie, and that inspired me to finally post this contest. This one is a lot simpler than the BALLAD contest.

I will give away one audio book for every fifty entries (so fifty entries means that I will randomly pick one winner, seventy five means I will randomly pick two, one hundred ten means I pick three, etc.), and you enter simply by posting a comment here saying who you would cast as Sam and Grace in a hypothetical Shiver movie. With links, pretty please, so that I can see!

On Friday, 9:30 EST, I'll pick winners through some mysterious means, and then I'll post who I would cast. Sound good? Go!

ETA: My crit partner, Tessa, informs me I sound incoherent with my math. I meant that I would give out 1 audio if I got 1-50 responses. Another if I got anything over 50 (50-100), and another in the next bracket of 50 (100-150). Etc. Savvy?

I loved Shiver and really want to listen to it now. I've been thinking and thinking all morning and all I could come up with is Leelee Sobieski well a younger her, kinda like she was in her movie Heaven on Earth. I have yet to come up with a male actor who Sam reminds me of yet.

Erm, haven't actually read Shiver. So I don't know who'd be good to play Grace and Sam. Is it possible to still be entered without actually suggesting actors? :/

Well i haven't read shiver yet so it's kinda hard to pick actors to play them not knowing there physical description.
But I would love to win a copy =)

Sam: Penn Badgley

Grace: a younger version of Rachel McAdams

http://www.imdb.com/media/rm1407420672/nm1046097

Oh, what, hey! I would *love* this on audio!

I'd cast Amanda Seyfried as Grace for some reason. I like to think that she plays a great ditz because she harbors great contempt for stupid people, and she'd have that much in common with Grace ^_^.

I'd pick Jamie Bell for Sam. He has a wolfish look about him.

Laughing Stars said...

I'd like to enter, too. I love the actor question, but it's a tough one. When I read Shiver, I formed specific mental images of each character, and I don't know of any young actors who are even close to fitting those images. *LOL* But ... hmmm ... how about Shia LeBoeuf as Sam (with lenses to make his eyes golden, of course) -- he has a bit of a lean, hungry look about him. Dakota Fanning would make a nice Grace. A talented duo!

i would actually love to see unknown actors play the part of Grace and Sam while reading i never imagined anyone famous to play them. i remember the first time i was reading Shiver this new boy walked into my Chemistry class and he WAS Sam. he was everything i thought Sam would be minus yellow eyes. he sort of looks like Ben Whishaw but younger of course!

Maggie Stiefvater said...

Hahah, Lola!

balletchica13 said...

i would cast Grace as Amanda Seyfried

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amanda_Seyfried

and Sam as Gaspard Ulliel hes French but really talented and has that pale emo look that i think your looking for.

(just google him) btw my favorite movie that he is in is called the very long engagment. its in french with english subtitles. its sad but also a beautifully heartwrenching movie.

Hi I absolutely loved your book! And I think that I look exactly like Rachel in Shiver. How you described her. Please pick me:)

hey!
Why not take some new people in the movie? It would be more fun to look at!:)

Hi, I could imagine Sam Bell from the movie Nowhere Boy as Sam, where he had the part of George Harrison. Aaron Johnson would be a good choice, too. btw both of them can sing and play the guitar. :)
