MY CSS FOR TITLES DOESN'T SHOW THIS BUT I AM RAGING IN CAPS HERE  
From THR:

Taylor Schilling has nabbed the female lead opposite Zac Efron in "The Lucky One," Warner Bros.' adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel.

The book tells of a Marine (Efron) who's survived three tours of duty in Iraq and attributes his good luck to a photograph he carried of a woman (Schilling) he doesn't even know. When he returns to the States, he sets out to find her.

The role was highly sought after among young Hollywood, with the studio conducting screen tests over the past two weeks. Among the actresses for the running were Abbie Cornish and Katie Cassidy.

...

Schilling, repped by Gersh, was one of the stars of NBC's recently canceled medical drama "Mercy." She recently completed shooting "Atlas Shrugged."


This is her:



No offense to her, she's got the right look sort of and she's beautiful but she looks kinda old and not just like a few years older! This was even one of the better pics... :/

AND WORSE... OVER ABBIE CORNISH! SHE WAS ONE OF MY DREAM BETHS... SHE IS SO GOOD! AND HAS SO MUCH CREDIBILITY!

IDK fingers crossed Taylor's screen test was legit better and they just didn't trade down from awesome Abbie (who undoubtedly is too good for this movie anyway, if we're being honest) over concern for the bottom line.

Dear God, please let this work out somehow. I'll be happy to be wrong about all my concerns. But OMG I AM SHAKING AND CRYING IN DISILLUSIONMENT AND ANGUISH RIGHT NOW. :''''''''''''(

IAWTC I WOULD HAVE FANTASY CAST HER IF I WASN'T LIKE, LOL AS IF MY GIRL ISN'T TOO GOOD FOR THIS. (NO OFFENSE ZAC, MAYBE FOR A DIFFERENT/BETTER MOVIE.)

ughhhhhhhhhhhhh I feel like 100% this was about money.

And this chick is totally attractive and she may be 26 but she looks damn near 35.

HER NAME IS TAYLOR... THAT IS CLEARLY A BAD SIGN. HOW COULD THEY HAVE MISSED THAT!

i totally agree with you about abbie being way cooler than this project but she was one of my dream beths as yk.

if i had any tears left for zac efron right now, i'd be weeping.

my comment to C was: "She looks like his mother"

CRYING BECAUSE IT'S TRUE.

she's only 26? That's wow-worthy to me. I'm 25, and look like I'm about 15 most of the time.

I won't say much, but I have (unfortunately) caught Mercy a few times, and when I looked her up on imdb it took me a few minutes to place her. Which I don't think is good.

We'll see. I'll be open-minded, but I'm def skeptical.

Just because Abbie's name is mentioned doesn't mean she was the least bit interested in this movie or ever read for it. All the article says that they were considering her.

Abbie's people are very selective and she just finished a movie with Robert DiNero I find it hard to believe that her management would have considered a NP flick especially given how poorly they have been received by critics in the past.

It could all be press and it's done all the time

I hope so because if she srsly thought about this movie, I would think she was ridiculous.
