Kate Hudson Cast as Darcy in Something Borrowed and Something Blue

Can We Please Recast Something Borrowed, Something Blue?

The following post is from community member Shannoninsf, who posted it in The Book Club group.

I'd heard that they were making Emily Giffin's chick lit book Something Borrowed and its sequel Something Blue into movies, so I figured I'd read them. I started reading after Ginnifer Goodwin was announced as Rachel, so I envisioned her throughout, and wound up thinking she was a good fit. However, by the time I got to Something Blue, I found that Kate Hudson would be playing Darcy and I instantly hated the idea.

Besides the book's physical description of Darcy (dark hair, olive skin, drop dead gorgeous), I just don't see Hudson in the part. She's already played the bitchy BFF in Bride Wars, and she was entirely unsympathetic in that, so I don't see her pulling off the transition from mean girl to nice girl like Darcy does in Something Blue. And I definitely can't see her meshing with John Krasinski, who plays her love interest. If I were the casting director, these would be my suggestions: Olivia Wilde, Lake Bell, Becki Newton, or Jordana Brewster. Who would you rather see as Darcy?
