Emma Watson to Star in The Perks of Being a Wallflower 2010-05-20 12:00:00

Emma Watson to Find Some Perks as a Wallflower

It's a far cry from Harry Potter, but I'll take it: Emma Watson, most often known as Miss Hermione Granger, has found her first post-Harry role: she's in negotiations to star in the film adaptation of The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

The bestseller is a beloved coming-of-age story about a teen boy who writes letters about his adolescence, and it seems that that part has been clinched too. Logan Lerman, who most recently appeared in Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, is also in talks to appear.

If you read the book, let me know — is Watson a good fit?

Interesting! I never would have thought of her as Sam, but I bet she could make it work. Not sure I buy Logan Lerman as Charlie, who I always pictured as being sort of scrawny and sandy-blond, but if the acting is good then that's what's important.
