Lovely Kiwi cuties

Carolyn Dando Rose McIver

The above pictured New Zealand natives, Carolyn Dando on the left and Rose McIver on the right, have, after a worldwide search, been chosen for significant supporting roles in Peter Jackson's upcoming supernaturally tinged dark drama THE LOVELY BONES, an adaptation of the best selling Alice Sebold novel of the same name.

18 year old McIver, who's been acting since the age of 2, will play Lindsey, the younger sister of the 14 year old deceased protagonist Susie Salmon. Also 18 year old Dando, who's a newcomer to the acting game, having only one previous credit, will play Ruth Connors, Susie's classmate who "becomes mysteriously connected to Susie after her death."

They both join heavyweight talent Rachel Weisz as Susie's mother, Ryan Gosling as her father, Susan Sarandon as her grandmother, Stanley Tucci as the despicably murderous Mr. Harvey and young Saoirse Ronan as the sadly departed Susie.

As mentioned, the story follows the brutal rape and murder of Susie and her posthumous observation of her family, from her perch in Heaven, as they struggle to cope with her death.

Extra Tidbit: Dando's one previous credit is the TV movie FATAL CONTACT: BIRD FLU IN AMERICA.

Of course you sound like an idiot, Clit. All it takes is a look at your replies. Live with it.

I think I'm gonna do a Clit here: No one asked you to argue.

Hehe...

Nomein...To be honest, you've gotta point. Arguing with someone who's contribution towards the topic is "I hate pale skinned people" or "You're a kid" is pretty much pointless. One ends up sounding like an idiot as well.

P.S. Bravo Paulie. You picked up on a typo. Amazing stuff!

Strike 2

Clit... Next time, try to spell "construct" better. Sorry, forgot you're just a kid. You seem to overreact a little (or a lot). I'm not angry. I'm just insulting you. An age limit is a great idea. Then you wouldn't be allowed to stay here. Aww...

Too Funny...

Paulie...Next time try to stop for a moment, and contruct coherant sentances. I swear, there should be an age limit to these sites. Would curb the amount of morons roaming around. Have fun with all the repressed anger issues you obviously seem to have Paulie.

As for the film. Atlas1982, you do have a point brother. Although, it's talented actors in the first place, involved in certain projects, that raise expectations. Simply because one already knows how good their track record is.

Kids these days

"Get a life Paulie."

What kind, your lame definition of a life, Clit? Are you really so stupid that you think I give my comments because someone asked for it? Do your surroundings a favour and shove your head up your arse, faggot.

Is it just me or does this movie sound extremely depressing. If the actor/director name(s) were detached, would you guys still be excited?

Nice

Get a life Paulie. No one asked whether you liked or disliked pale skinned people. Comment on the damned movie or shove off mate. Anyways...I'm looking forward to this film. It has a talented cast and a maverick filmaker in Jackson. Should be stellar.

Can someone help me out? How much longer after this girl's death is the story supposed to take place? Because McIver is supposed to be the "younger sister of the 14 year old" Susie Salmon, and she's really 18. 13/14 year olds look a lot different than 18 year olds. How's this gonna work? anyway, I'm looking forward to this.

And what's with all the hating on King Kong? It was beautifully told, you could sense an actual caring and even love between the girl and the ape, and it had awesome

I loved Heavenly Creatures and this sounds like a return to that type of style for Peter Jackson. I'm glad. I couldn't stand another ring-walking big monkey mystical adventure from him. Back to basics.
