Well, I could really see Scout Smith as Eli.
I was thinking what a turn-about it would be to have the gaunt and spectral Brian Kocherhans playing powerless Oskar (less the guyliner
), and the warm and comforting Scout Smith playing monstrous Eli. This would be a departure from both films, where there is nothing to visually mark Oskar (or Owen) as a social outcast. Then again, in the novel JAL had Oskar be rotund.
How interesting could it be to start out with an Oskar who could be a challenge to sympathize with, based upon his appearance, while Eli would be instantly just adorbs?
