Cindy Hogan Shares Her Dream Cast for WATCHED

If you haven't heard of Cindy Hogan and her novels, today's your lucky day.  Cindy came by to tell us about her debut YA novel, WATCHED, and share her "dream cast" of characters.  After the character's names, Cindy provides a 1-sentence description of each, which just adds to my desire to read this book!
First, a little about WATCHED ~

It takes more than a school trip to Washington, D.C. to change fifteen-year-old Christy's life. It takes murder. 
A witness to the brutal slaying of a Senator's aide, Christy finds herself watched not only by the killers and the FBI, but also by two hot boys. 
She discovers that if she can't help the FBI, who want to protect her, it will cost her and her new friends their lives.

Christy (Ashley Benson) - Reserved main character who's forced to be stronger than she ever thought possible after witnessing a political murder
Rick (Drew Roy) -  Sincere and steady guy who would make the ideal boyfriend. And he wants Christy.
Alex (Robbie Amel) - Ultra hot guy, who's charisma forces all girls to worship him, including Christy
Marybeth (Isla Fisher) - Christy's loyal friend and roommate, who almost loses her mind after witnessing the brutal murder.
 Kira (Lindsey Lohan) - sassy, boy-crazy, fickle girl that pretends to be your friend when really, she's only looking out for herself.
Eugene (Kevin McHale) - The super brain of the group.The male counterpart of Christy.
Summer (Blake Lively) -  Beautiful girl who always gets what she wants and she doesn't want Christy to be a part of her group
Josh (Liam Hemsworth) -  The group's meat-head super jock that falls hard for Summer
Mrs. J (Juliette Binoche or Annette Benning) - Resourceful and yet stretched-too-thin head chaperon of the student political tour 
Senator Randolph (Peter Sarsgaard) -  Senator of Iowa who gets messed up with the terrorists and watches his aide "lose" his head
Jeremy (Channing Tatum) - good-looking FBI special agent that is the primary protector of Christy
Nathan (Jesse Metcalf) - Jeremy's loyal partner
Iceman (Jared Leto) - The terrorist assigned to follow Christy and discover what she saw
Leader (Faran Tahir) - The man that orders the execution of the senator's aide

Yeah, I'd say that's a pretty nice-looking cast.  Can't wait to embark on this far-from-normal field trip with Christy and the rest of her class.  And right now, WATCHED is only $.99!! Cindy's second novel in the series, PROTECTED, just released.  You can get them both at Amazon or Barnes & Noble.  You can also find Cindy online at her blog or on Twitter.

What would you do if you had to work with the FBI to save your life and the life of your friends? Would you think it was cool or would you be scared out of your minds?

Nice looking cast indeed! I hadn't heard of this book before- will be checking it out now. :)

That's a wonderful collection of cast members.

If I had to work with the FBI to save my life and the lives of my friends, I would be scared...but...if the agent assigned to me was Jeremy (Channing Tatum), then I would be less scared and more lust - ahem - lost in emotions :-)

Soiunds like a wonderful book to add to my TBR list.
