Question: If you were to cast a movie for Orbiting Jupiter which actors or actresses would you choose to pay the lead roles and why?
Answer: I would choose Logan Lerman to play Joseph because he has black hair and brown eyes, is more serious when acting and can play the more suspenseful parts in movies. Logan played Percy in both the Percy Jackson movies.
My first reason for why I think that Logan Lerman should play Joseph in Orbiting Jupiter is because he has black hair just like Joseph and brown. I think it is a very important part of playing the part because when I watch a movie that is based off of a book, I think the characters should look the characters described in the book. I imagine Joseph as a tall 14 year old boy with longer black hair that covered his eyes and dark chocolate brown eyes and I think Logan fits that criteria.
My second reason for why I think that Logan Lerman should play Joseph is because Logan is a more serious when acting. I think this quality is important because Joseph doesn’t make jokes or talk that much. When Logan played Percy he was a very misunderstood character because Percy can see thing that normal people couldn’t. Percy acted very timid/shy and quiet when he when to camp half-blood and right befor that was when Percy’s ‘’mother’’ was kidnapped. So when Percy was entering camp he acted sad, jumpy, and depressed, just like Joseph. This relates to Orbiting Jupiter because when Joseph first went to Jack’s house to live he looked very depressed, sad, timid, shy and jumpy. Joseph also didn’t smile or talk.
My third reason for why I think that Logan Lerman should play Joseph is because he can act out very suspenseful parts in movies. Like in Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief, when he was fighting Medusa it was very suspenseful because Percy couldn't simply look at Medusa or else he would be turned to stone. So Percy had to use his IPod to look at the reflection of Medusa. Also in Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters, when Scylla swallowed Percy’s little row boat. Percy, Annabeth and Grover tried to row free. This relates to the book Orbiting Jupiter because when Jack’s dad accidentally touched Joseph. In this part of the book Joseph jumped up from his stool run over to the wall of the barn with his hands up. He look terrified.
I would chose Maxwell Perry Cotton to play Jack because he can act innocent, Caring and brave. Maxwell Perry Cotton played Billy in Mr. Popper’s Penguins.
My first reason why I would chose Maxwell is because he can act innocent. He displayed that he could be innocent in Mr. Popper’s Penguins when he went to his dad’s apartment for his birthday. His Dad opened the door to his apartment a crack so that you could only see his face and said “ Sorry I am not ready yet. “ Than all of a sudden there's a strange noise. Billy looks down and sees a penguin. Billy says “ Look a penguin! “. This relates to the book Orbiting Jupiter because Jack is very innocent and so in Billy. Jack is innocent by he has never gotten into trouble at school or even at home.
My second why reason I would chose Maxwell to play Jack because he can act very caring. He displayed this when the penguins were taken from his father in Mr. Popper’s Penguins. This showed that he was very caring a protective of the penguins and that he really wanted them back. This relates to the book Orbiting Jupiter because Jack is caring and does everything in his power to protect Joseph. He shows this when Joseph falls into the river. Jack dumps everything in his backpack and uses it to pull Joseph out of the freezing water. Then when he is home he tries to take all of the blame for it.
My third reason why I would chose Maxwell is because he can act very brave. He displayed this because he stood up to the zoo keeper to get his penguins back. This relates to the book Orbiting Jupiter because Jack jumped into the river to save Joseph and he stood up to the kids that were planing to beat up Joseph.
I would chose Liam Hemworth to play Jack’s dad because he can act respectfully, protective, and he is very hard working. He plays in both Thor movies, and in Ghostbusters.
My first reason I would chose Liam Hemsworth is because he can act out respectful parts in movies. Like when he played Thor he is very respectful to his friends. Jack’s dad is also respectful like when Joseph’s dad came over and wanted to see where they put Joseph.
My second reason I would chose Liam Hemsworth is because he can act as protective characters. Like in Thor the Dark World, Thor was willing to sacrifice himself to save his friends. Jack’s dad was very concerned for Jack and Joseph when they were in the river.
My third reason I would chose Liam Hemsworth is because he is very hard working. Brad is very hardworking by you have to be hardworking to be actor. Jack’s dad is hardworking because he has a farm which is very hard work in it’s self.
P.s. Sorry I don't read the credits on movies.
Question - '' As an audience member to Orbiting Jupiter, how do you think Joseph's character has changed from chapter 1 to chapter 2?''
Answer - As an audience member I think Joseph's character has changed because he has become reckless and more comfortable around the school. I think that Joseph's character has change because he has become more reckless because he started to go on the ice and slide around. I think this is reckless because the ice is thine so he may fall through it, and the river moves very fast. I also think that Joseph's character has changed because he seems to be more comfortable around the school because he raced couch Swieteck up the climbing rope, and he also took the questions that Mr. D'Vlney gave to him. These are the reasons why I think Joseph's character has changed because he has become reckless and is more comfortable in and around the school.
Two labels that I think have been placed upon Joseph in Orbiting Jupiter are, Unfriendly and dangerous. My reason I think the label unfriendly has been placed upon Joseph is because Joseph is very secretive. This could be labeled as unfriendly because he isn't close to anyone and he called the bus driver a jerk before he said hello (he didn't even say hello). I think the label dangerous has been placed on Joseph because because the teachers are very careful around him. This is because Joseph has tried to kill one of his former teachers.
