The YA books was considered a bestseller.

There is a scene in the Lily Tomlin and Bette Midler movie "Big Business" where the bumpkin duo has to pretend to be the rich business tycoon duo. Their only frame of reference for how business and board rooms work is Dynasty. This was funny because it was so obviously NOT how the world actually worked and the idea that board rooms worked like they did on TV was laughable.

Now, this is how the majority of shows and books, especially YA novels, think the world actually works. Their only frame of reference is other poorly conceived media.

The do look far too old to be playing 21 year olds. The guy playing Alex in particular. Kinda of a shame really as it felt like we were moving away from us having to suspend belief that 30 year olds are teens/young 20’s. But both are quite attractive, if they have the chemistry then they’ll make an attractive pair. Maybe they felt the need to cast slightly older actors to make the sex scenes less like watching youngsters having sex!

I see some outrage that Alex is too white? I never read him as super dark skinned. He’s half Mexican right? So not white obviously but I think this actor is probably about right?

Yeah, this has all the trappings of an attempted hookup gone bad.

Even witht he Me Too, revealing you were offered a sexual quid pro quo is still dicey for the career. I can see where they may have offered Cimino the lead role in Red White and Royal Blue, but made it contingent.

I saw Taylor Zakhar Perez in The Kissing Booth movies (sue me, I find the predictable story beats of rom coms somewhat soothing). He was fine, but reads too old for this role. Cimino would have been better. Actually, the meta of casting Cimino for this and casting George Sear (who is British) in the Prince Henry role would have been hilarious.

It's kind of cute seeing all the young Hollywood gays desperately butter up to this Matthew Lopez guy wrote this. Also that Adam Silvera who did several others. And now all these books are getting film adaptations. It's so obvious they're all vying for roles in these upcoming YA gay projects.

by Anonymousreply 54June 19, 2022 12:59 PM

If you follow publishing, Adam Silvera's YA books have been hitting the "best of" lists for the past few years.

No idea if they're any good, but they seem to have cornered the market on gay latino teen protagonists (no surprise). Several of his books are getting adaptations, or so it seems.

I will say that the premise of one of his books, They Both Die at the End, intrigued me - and seems like the ending DL didn't know it needed.

[quote]On September 5, a little after midnight, Death-Cast calls Mateo Torrez and Rufus Emeterio to give them some bad news: They’re going to die today. Mateo and Rufus are total strangers, but, for different reasons, they’re both looking to make a new friend on their End Day. The good news: There’s an app for that. It’s called the Last Friend, and through it, Rufus and Mateo are about to meet up for one last great adventure—to live a lifetime in a single day.

R54 makes me think that this role might have been why Andrew Matarazzo made his little rant the other day about his friends not reciprocally supporting him. I don’t know if he has ties to either the director or either glass closeted actor. But there’s no way he didn’t seek an audition for this.

I love the casting for this. I had them in my head as grown adults around my age (26) so for me, they work just fine. I know they are meant to be a bit younger but to me, they are written like older adults. Taylor’s got a lot of criticism but I don’t get it. I really see his character through the screen without even seeing him act. Confident, charismatic, really kind looking face. And I think he’ll play well against Nick. They look good together, they look a similar age. Nick is bang on. He’s the handsome prince Britain wishes it had.

Do we know who is playing who yet in the rest of the class?

I guess that’s perils of books into films. We all see them differently. Worked out for me this time!

I hope they don’t make this film for an under 18 audience. I fear it gets put into the HS category of books & will go really tame. The book isn’t shy about them having sex, in fact it’s a biggish part of their story. I don’t need major sex scenes but I hope they don’t back off entirely. It’d be nice to see a realistic take on a gay relationship.

Taylor is just fine. He & Nick look very similar ages & they look really good together. I am a genuine mega fan of the book but happily accept the film will have notable differences. The actors may not be exactly as written, taller, hair colour, eye colour etc. The story will differ in places too, that’s how book adaptions work. And that’s OK so long as the overall story is faithful & the actors do a great job. Presumably, Taylor & Nick had decent chemistry in their auditions & impressed.

No-one is sure on Polo. Luna is the obvious choice but not sure why he is in London if so. Unless they are filming internal scenes in London studios perhaps. I’ve seen Philip floated about but surely not?!
