20 of Our Favorite YA Novels: Who Should Play the Lead?

Quentin from Paper Towns - Jesse Eisenberg

Okay, so maybe it is wishful thinking to want an actor like Jesse Eisenberg to play Quentin, but we can dream! Eisenberg has already been nominated for an Oscar for The Social Network, played the lead in one of the coolest zombie movies ever (Zombieland), and been in a Woody Allen film (To Rome with Love), so there's really no limit to the kind of role that he can pull off. Paper Towns is a heart-wrenching novel that needs an actor with some gravitas, which Eisenberg has proven he has in spades!
