Orbiting Jupiter movie cast.
For the role of Joseph i would cast Daren Kagasoff who played the role of Ricky underwood in the show “The secret life of the american teenager”, in the show the secret life of the american teenagers Ricky was known as the bad boy just like Joseph. Daren Kagasoff “Ricky underwood” in my mind is almost a perfect match to play Joseph in his last show “the secret life of the american teenager” he and his girlfriend Amy Juergens had a baby at age 15 just like Joseph and Maddie did. Ricky wanted nothing more than to be involved in his son’s (John) life, Joseph was the same he wanted nothing more than to find his daughter (Jupiter) and be involved in her life. Ricky Underwoodwas an abused child and ended up in a foster home which changed his life for the better, We have no idea what happened to Joseph’s parents but we do know he also ended up in a foster home with great parents which is changing his life for the better. Ricky being an abused child he had trust problems which lead to him doing bad things and he ended up in juvie. Joseph also ended up in juvie for attempting to kill a teacher. Although Daren Kagasoff is almost 30 he has recently played the role of a 15 year old boy in high school really well and i definitely think he could do it again. Daren has dark brown eyes and black hair and so does Joseph. Therefor i think Daren Kagasoff would be a great choice for the role of Joseph.
Lastly for the role of Their dad i would cast Bob Saget who played the role of Danny Tanner in the show full house and the role of the dad in the movie father and scout. Bob Saget played in many different movies as the role of the “dad” and was a great dad in most of them. In the show full house there were many cases where his three daughter “D.J Tanner, Michelle Tanner and Stephanie Tanner” got themselves into trouble sometimes more than others and Danny had to find different ways to deal with them without getting to mad. In the book Orbiting Jupiter Jack and Joseph’s father had to find a way not to get to mad at them when they went out onto the ice and almost fell in. Danny was a very strict dad just like Jack and Joseph’s father. Bob Saget is very tall and has dark brown eyes and i imagine Jack and Joseph’s dad very tall and with dark brown eyes. Therefor i think Bob Saget should definitely be casted for the role of the dad.
As an audience member to orbiting Jupiter, how do you think Joseph's character has changed from ch1 to ch2?
As an audience member to the book orbiting Jupiter i think Joseph changed quite a bit. In the first chapter Joseph never talked to anyone and was very distance at school, i think that was because Joseph was still the "new kid" in town and was just starting to get used to his new life. In the second chapter Joseph started to talk more and got more involved in school activity's. For example Joseph started to talk to Jack and his new family more, I think he did that because he know they think more of him than just the 14 year old boy who has a kid. Mr. D'unley Josephs math teacher each day gave him lots of math questions to answer and each day Joseph did just that i think that if Mr. D'unley would have asked Joseph those questions in the first chapter he would have not answered them.
In your opinion how do you think Joseph has changed?
We are reading this book called orbiting Jupiter, this book is about a boy named Joseph, he is 14 he once tried to kill a teacher because he took bad pills his friend gave to him. He has a daughter. Joseph was just adopted by a foster family he would never talk and never ride the bus. I think his new family would label him as very independent, independent because he would never talk and sit alone in his room. I think the bus driver would label him as disrespectful and stupid, these because when the bus driver was talking to him he would never answer and stupid because he walked to school everyday instead of taking the bus in the freezing cold. The teacher thinks Joseph is a bad influence on Jack because he was late to school.
