Alexandra Daddario Cast in PERCY JACKSON AND THE LIGHTNING THIEF
Alexandra Daddario was cast in PERCY JACKSON AND THE LIGHTNING THIEF as Annabeth, Percy’s friend and daughter of the Greek God, Athena.
I wrote about Logan Lerman and Brandon T. Jackson being cast in the movie a few weeks ago and was sort of happy with the casting, but this one I gotta say no.
Annabeth is 12 years-old in The Lightening Thief and so is Percy. Now while Logan Lerman might be able to pass off as younger (he’s 17), Alexandra Daddario (who is 23) will not.
If Annabeth looks older than Percy, then it’s not going to work. I mean can you imagine if Hermione had been older than Harry Potter and Ron? That’s ridiculous. I really don’t know how they’re going to make this work.
They just killed my excitement for the movie right there.
The first book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, The Lightning Thief follow, Percy Jackson, the son of a mortal woman and a Greek god, and his friends on a quest to stop a dangerous apocalyptic war between the gods.
