With Trial by Fire (High School Sidekick, Book 2) releasing in under two weeks, I thought I’d share my casting choices if the series was ever made into a television series. And for the record, as cool as a big blockbuster movie would be, I think a series on Amazon Prime or Netflix would be cooler since you could really dive into the characters more that way.
Anyways, let’s get on with it.
First up is Robbie. I haven’t seen the second season of Cobra Kai yet, but when I saw the first season, Xolo Maridueña instantly captivated me and he would make the perfect Robbie Garcia/Worm.
Then we have Jasmin, Robbie’s mega-crush. There were a couple of choices for this one I had rolling around, but I think Isabela Moner is a lock.
Robbie best friend, Pete, would go to Froy Gutierrez.
Maria is Jasmin’s best friend, and though it’s not a huge role, Zendaya would nail it. She’s got that sarcastic, sassy, snarky thing down.
The first of Robbie’s sidekick partners, Daniel, also known as Hydro. Keiynan Lonsdale would be an awesome Hydro. Plus, he’s already got the superhero thing down.
Melissa, otherwise known as Mighty Miss, is the other sidekick in the series, and Hailee Steinfeld would be amazing.
And then we have The Trio.
Mr. Mimic is Robbie’s mentor, and Kyle Chandler would be amazing. He’s got the look, not super powerful but could hold his own, and his acting is awesome.
Michelle Rodriguez can pull off the badass any day of the week, so she’d be perfect as Ms. Majestic.
And finally, Supron. He’s sort of like the Superman of my world, and I think John Cena would pull him off perfectly.
What do you think? Have you read Freshman Sidekick? Who would you pick as the actors of the roles?
