Emma Watson's Latest Role

Do Not Own

By now, everyone knows that Emma Watson played Hermione Granger in all the Harry Potter films (last one coming out this summer!) However, we finally have news of her next Post-Potter project and I for one am thrilled that the rumors are true.

Emma will be starring as Sam in the movie adaptation of The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. This is one of my all-time favorite books...and it's great that the author is actually writing and directing the movie, so no complaints you book purists! :-)

You can read an article about it on Just So You Know, and even vote with your thoughts on Emma playing Sam. Actor Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson) will star as the main character, Charlie. Sam is his friend/love interest...for those that aren't familiar with the book. I recommend you read it ASAP. It's one I love to go back to time and again.

And again, if you have not read this book...I posted the news here because there is some LGBT content in the novel. Just so you're aware!

So what do you think? Have you read this? Are you excited about Emma and Logan? If not, who did you want?

I still haven't read this book. I gotta do that.

I'm not a huge fan of Emma Watson, so... I dunno. I guess I'll wait and see. I do like Logan Lerman for Charlie!
