I might be not a big fan of this project but they are doing a good job with the casting so far.

Imogen was one of the 3 names on my wishlist of actresses who I thought might be feasible (ie would be willing to do a project like this because I didn't think "bigger" names would be interested given the script, director etc), had availability as far as I could see and has a really good reputation amongst film bloggers/critics. So, I'm pretty happy with this casting.

I hope their choice for the 3rd dude in the group is equally good. He's one more important casting piece.

Seriously!! She was on my wishlist for Zac's love interest in the movie. Then she just got cast in another movie called 'Need for Speed' several days ago, and I was disappointed that she won't have time to do this movie.
She's a very promising young actress on the rise, and I've always liked her since I saw 28 Weeks Later. She's so beautiful. She had such a small role in Me & Orson Welles. She's finally playing Zac's love interest in a movie!

Imogen Poots is very nice and she isn't the tall girl. I hope she will play a love interest for Zac character.
I will cry if they again put «high giraffe» next to Zac.

Come to think of it, Zac has been paired with tall actresses recently. I was surprised to see Nicole in heels and Zac barefoot walking next to each other in a scene in The Paperboy. They didn't do anything to hide their height diffrence. lol

By the way, Deadline says Imogen will "star opposite Zac", so I thought that meant she's playing his love interest in the movie, but some reports say her role is not specified yet. I'm confused. "star opposite someone" just means "join the cast"? Not necessaily "play direct role to someone"? Hmm.. we'll find out soon.

:D I'm afraid to think that Deborah Ann Woll as the first of the co-stars is a love interest for Zac ... She was with him the same height.
This will work just as in the comedy direction though.

"I was surprised to see Nicole in heels and Zac barefoot walking next to each other in a scene in The Paperboy."

This must have been an example of Zac's latest career goal, to be fearless.

Wait a minute, let me get this straight - there is actually an actress pursuing a movie career under the name Imogen Poots?
