If so, Emma would have to speak with an American accent, right? We'll see if she can pull it off. Robert Pattinson does a pretty good job for the Twilight movies, and I feel British actors in general have an easier time adopting an American accent than vice-versa. Avatar ImagecOoLiO_bEans1494 says: Glad that she is going to pursue an acting career as she is certainly a very talented actress. :) Avatar ImageAnna Weasley says: I wonder what part, if this is rue, she would play. Most likely the main character's love interest? What was her name...Pat?Avatar Imagelunaisawesome says: that.. would... be ...amamzing!! my 2 obsessions coming together in one movie?!?!?Avatar Imagelunaisawesome says: hey anyone read it?Avatar ImageLizeth says: I hope she gets the part as well, like all the others! She is a wonderful actress, and Hermione's my favourite character.Avatar Imagemagicmaniac says: COOLAvatar Imagemagicmaniac says: COOLAvatar Imagehay413 says: If it is true i would hope she it's the role of the sister. I just don't think she would be right as 'Sam'. The same goes for Logan Lerman he would be a better fit for the brother than for charlie. At least that is my opinion. None the less Perks of being a wallflower is my FAVORITE book.Avatar ImageLoonyMaddie3 says: Cool! I'll look forward to seeing it! It's a cute book!Avatar ImageHarryPotterGirl (Hermione) says: Awesome!!!Avatar Imagephoenixortheflame says: Hmm, cool! That was a weird but good book. And both Emma and Logan are such good actors, they deserve some good roles!Avatar Imagecghambright says: So cool! How AWESOME is this news??? I would LOVE to see these two in a movie together. I’m assuming Emma would play Sam, which is a completely different character from the ones she usually plays. It will be really nice to see her get to show off her range. Emma is one of the rare actresses who can play anything: drama, comedy, romance, horror, etc. She’s very talented. I also love Logan Lerman and of course, John Malkovich. I really really hope this news is true! Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: I know she will be brilliant! Hope it works out! :o)Avatar Imagemoondragon15 says: I'm currently reading the's really good. I hope she gets the part. Avatar ImageHagrid 713 says: cool for emma!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Will they use Botox on her eyebrows???Avatar ImageMr. Brightside says: Never heard of this book till now but i'm very curious now.Avatar Imagesanjuangelina says: Hmm, Emma is having a steady career and she's pursuing academics, it's so good to see an actress who is so focused! She is a real role model!!! Way to go, Emma!Avatar ImageJackMeggers says: I'm excited to see what kind of roles they all choose afterwards!Avatar ImageCarinaPotter says: It's a great book, I hope she and Logan get parts!
