Yah! I'm the first post! :D Sorry...I just had sugar! So...I get random...and hyper when I have sugar...but back to the question!

I think that Skandar Keyne would be a good Jamie. But who ever they get, he has to have a great smile. Because you know...Jamie always smiling...atleast he is in my head...but I could just be crazy and I'm going to shut up now....I really shouldn't talk when I'm hyper. lol :D

Jansen Panettiere? right age/look (I think)... (Hayden Panettiere's little brother - would be a casting coup to cast Hayden as Pet with Jansen playing the "brother" all along).

Yay for indie actors!

Edit to add: George MacKay from the upcoming "The Boys Are Back". http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1126657/
Like Rob, he'd have to lose the accent.

There should be two Jamies or at least one that can look both as a kid and as a teenager. When Wanda/Mel sees him in the caves she says he's not a kid anymore, he's taller and looks like he's matured. He lost his boyish look. I imagined him like a young man rather than a kid.

There was a poll, I don't remember where, to vote for possible Jamies. Of all the options, the ones I liked the most were Josh Hutcherson or Logan Lerman.

He may be a little old, but in my head I sort of picture Chris Massoglia as Jamie. He's just got that smile, and that bouncy, happiness. He was great in The Vampire's Assistant and if he were only younger I'd think he was perfect.
To be honest, I wish they'd change the age of Jamie to a little older or cast someone unknown. I'd love to see an unknown because I think it's great when unknowns get breaks in big films (this is going to be big, obviously). Otherwise, I don't know any young actors for the nine year old Jamie and I think he's fourteen when he's older? Hmm, not sure. I still think Chris would be great, but he is a bit old, he's like seventeen or something.

ever since i got the news that BooBoo Stewart will be playing the role of Seth Clearwater,
I have also started picturing him as Jamie Stryder.

BooBoo's features do not really match (i think?) the features of Jamie as described in the book, but because I've always see similarities between Seth & Jamie, well, i'm just gonna go for BooBoo haha :P
