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. :''''''''''''(

She looks way older than her own age

WTF choosing her over Abbie??Insane

I think it's better if I stop at this because I don't have anything positive to say yet.

And I think it got way worse because now we know WB could have chosen ABBIE CORNISH.

I couldn't even believe while reading. Even Amanda I had already seen in some movie. But this Taylor woman/way older woman I had never seen.
I had to google her to search for something and besides the pics that confirmed that she looks way older than her own age I couldn't find anything to help me feel better.
