'The Notebook' TV Series Might Come To The CW, So These Actors Should Be Considered For Noah & Allie
If you still cry every time you watch The Notebook , you're not alone. (I'm right there with you.) Prepare for the waterworks to come a lot more frequently, though, since The Notebook TV series is in the works at the CW. The shows hasn't been greenlit yet, which means it's under development but hasn't gone to series yet.
So how will this differ from the movie we all know and love? According to Entertainment Weekly:
This series will follow the romantic journey of the two beloved central characters Noah and Allie, at the outset of their blossoming relationship as they build their lives and their future together against the backdrop of the racial politics, economic inequities, and social mores of post-World War II of the late 1940s in North Carolina.
It sounds like it will pick up somewhere around the beginning of their relationship, but show us so much more of its development. (I'm envisioning many moments in the vein of "If you're a bird, I'm a bird!")
Of course, the main question on my mind is who will play Noah and Allie. It's hard to imagine anyone but Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams in the iconic roles, but with so many talented young actors and actresses in Hollywood, this could be great exposure for two new stars. Here are some people I think would be great in the roles.
1. Dylan O'Brien
What would Teen Wolf be without O'Brien's charisma? It's tough to top Gosling's allure, but I'd like to see O'Brien give it a try.
2. Grant Gustin
Whether he's playing a not-so-nice prep school student in Glee or an actual superhero, Gustin wins viewers over every time. What better quality to have in a romantic lead?
3. Ansel Elgort
Elgort made millions swoon in The Fault in Our Stars, so he's definitely qualified for this role.
4. Kiernan Shipka
Sally Draper and Allie have more in common than you might think. Shipka already excelled in one role and she's perfect for the other.
5. Chloe Grace Moretz
Moretz is enchanting onscreen, even when she's going head-to-head with Alec Baldwin on 30 Rock. Something tells me she'd be just as captivating as Allie.
6. Kaitlyn Dever
From TV to the big screen, Dever constantly diversifies her roles. What better move than to adapt a movie for the small screen?
7. Hailee Steinfeld
Steinfeld already played the romantic lead in Romeo & Juliet, but if anyone can write romance like Shakespeare, it's Nicholas Sparks.
