Ever since we first read Becca Fitzpatrick’s Hush, Hush, back when a slew of angel-themed YA novels threatened to wipe vampires off the shelves in 2009, we’ve been wondering what was taking Hollywood so long to snatch up the series. It’s got all the elements of a great addictive movie franchise: relatable heroine (Nora Grey, a science wiz and cellist whose father was murdered recently), irresistible mysterious bad-boy (Nora’s new biology partner Patch, who ditches homework for the pool hall), hilarious best friend (Vee, we can’t even describe her in a phrase) and complex mythology that unfolds carefully throughout the book. There are fallen angels, love triangles, murder mysteries and a seedy New England setting in the mix too. And yes, today, finally, comes the news from Entertainment Weekly that LD Entertainment will adapt the four-book saga for the big screen. Greek creator Patrick Sean Smith will write the screenplay.
Hush, Hush fans have been fantasy casting this story for years now, and even Fitzpatrick once had her own dream choices for the roles. “I started writing Hush, Hush almost ten years ago, so I was picturing actors who are obviously now too old to play the parts. I wanted Steven Strait for Patch and Emmy Rossum for Nora, but that won’t work anymore,” she told EW. Now she thinks some undiscovered actors should star. Fair enough, but we took a shot at choosing some up-and-comers we love for the roles. Check out our choices and then chime in with your own!

We feel really bad for the ladies on the worst-dressed list at the MTV Movie Awards. A couple of tweaks to their outfits and they could have been on the best-dressed list, easily. None of the looks in this selection are heinous, except a few. Brooke Hogan would be one of the few. We can’t even begin to deal with her bedazzled, stomach-baring WTF of an ensemble. Another, would be Ciara, whose red Balmain mini-dress crosses the line from sexy short to wardrobe malfunction short. We get that the deep neckline and little skirt slit are supposed to be artful, but they looked ripped. Julianne Hough should be given the memo that a peplum is not necessary for everything. Especially not ’80s looking lace Sally LaPointe cut-out dress. They make the dancer look boxy when we know she isn’t at all. Bad silhouette.
Now on to the ones we truly feel sad about. We love Christina Ricci, but we feel she’s got so tiny that nothing fits her right anymore. Her Christian Siriano strapless number would have looked awesome if she could fill it out a little. As a result, the fabric swamps her and it, somehow, looks synthetic. Lucy Hale fell prey to that same problem. Her color-blocked Catherine Malandrino dress just didn’t sit right on her, which is shame, because Lucy is so lovely! We also beat our heads about Elizabeth Banks, whose sartorial flag normally flies high. We just coudn’t get on board with her black Elie Saab jumpsuit. The detail down the arms and bodice looked … spidery. Look, weird fashion stuff can also be amazing when people own it. She’s trying desperately to own this — we love the makeup and hair — but the outfit has run away with her. Better luck next time. That applies to all these ladies. Have a look at the gallery to see who else is on the list.
