To everyone saying MTV should’ve chosen better “actors”:
These weren’t meant to be actors, they were athletes. That’s why they were chosen. You can stop whining now. And yes, some were fans of TMR as well. Besides, even if they hadn’t ever heard of it until the movie, why is that a bad thing? Its good. It means that they’re being exposed to something new and becoming fans. Don’t be fandom hogs. Share your love for stuff because the more fans they get, the better the material gets for you. If no body liked TMR, they wouldn’t have made a film. So now, the book is getting more exposure and its great because it means sequels! Also, if the fans are large in number, big movie producers are more likely to maintain the integrity of the novel with the film. They can’t change it if it’s already great.
