Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift and Dakota Fanning Face Off in Epic Casting Battle!

Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift and Dakota Fanning Face Off in Epic Casting Battle!-photo

This could get tense, people. Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift and Dakota Fanning are reportedly being pitted against each other in a casting battle for the lead role in the upcoming film The Seven Rays, based on the novel by Jessica Bendinger.

Bendinger, who also wrote the screenplay for Bring It On, has stated that she either of the three actresses starring in the movie, which will follow teenager Beth Michaels as she uncovers secrets of the supernatural after discovering that the woman she thought was her mother actually isn't.

Should Bendinger's casting wishes come down to an actual face-off, things could get unpleasant. Would the competition bring an end to the double-dating for recent besties Swift and Gomez? And whose experience with supernatural roles would carry more weight: Wizards of Waverly Place star Gomez's, or New Moon actress Fanning's?

We certainly wouldn't want to get in the middle of this sure-to-be-heated triangle—but don't let that stop you! Who do you think would be best in the role? Share your thoughts in the comments section!

    I pick Dakota Fanning. First of all I read some of your comments that say you pick Selena because shes beautiful. I have to agree with you all the way that she is beautiful. But its not about beauty, Its about who has good acting skills. And Im not a selena hater. Honestly I love her shes great at what she does but im gonna have to go with Dakota on this one. I love Taylor Swift but from what I heard about her from valentines day, I would have to say No. I love her singing a lot though, She has a beautiful voice as well as Selena Does. And you people who say Dakotas Ugly, Shes not. She is a gorgeous young actor and she deserves this role. She is so Awesome. So please pick Dakota!!

    Dakota Fanning should definitely get the role. She's an amazing actress, and she's extremely talented. She's had lots of experience and can definitely play ANY role out there. Selena started out as an "actress" on Disney Channel, but she's honestly just more of a singer now. I don't like her very much, and I don't think she's a good actress. Taylor's music is great. I think she should stick to minor acting roles, and concentrate on her music. It's what she does best. So, overall, Dakota should definitely, no question, get the role. She's amazing! I love her(:

    Dakota is one of the best young actress ever. She should get the role. Taylor is only good at singing. Selena's good at acting but not dakota's a pro at acting. I love her. :D

    Seems like a stupid battle to me. What I think of the three: SELENA GOMEZ: I seen her in Ramona and Beezus. And her acting, pretty good. The movie was relatable to the book and Joey King was a good match with Selena Gomez. I think she has a shot at this because she has been in previous movies based on a book. DAKOTA FANNING: I wouldn't say bad or a good actress. She's only an ok actress. Big movies doesn't always make an actor/actress seem like he/she can act really good. I can say she acted AMAZING in I Am Sam. Dakota Fanning acted HORRIBLE in War of the Worlds, THE RUNAWAYS, and Hide and Seek. All those movies I've seen and it wasn't that great. Taylor Swift: This role is a big one and yes she is on Valentine's Day. Though she doesn't have a big role on it. But Taylor does have to stick to mostly just MUSIC. I say she can only do minor movie parts like in Valentine's Day. THE RESULTS: As long as the movie is good and it's not Taylor Swift. I'm ok with Selena and Dakota, but just end this stupid battle.

    The three are totally different Taylor is tall and can not act, Dakota is the most experienced, and Selena looks nothing like the other two she is not blond. So I don't know what they are looking for in the lead but I would go with Selena she is talented and not well know. Dakota would be my second choice.

    we all know its going to be Dakota she will make the movie good, and selena will make it hard to take surriously. i dont see her as a big movie star...... thats why disney is a mistake for people starting out. oh and "BATTLE" pfffft please..... it shouldnt even be a battle when Taylor sucks at acting and selena is just not there yet. DAKOTA ALL THE WAY!!!!!

    Agreed! Saoirse Ronan was NOMINATED FOR AN OSCAR! At the age of 13! She had a lotta oscar buzz for the Lovely Bones last year, too, for which she won plenty of awards, and was nominated for a BAFTA and BFCAA, and won young actress BFCAA.

    Ok, Saoirse Ronan was ALSO MENTIONED!!! I'd choose her. She has a lot of awards recognition and is often talked about as the best young actress of the generation. But I also like Dakota, who would be good for the role. If not Saoirse, then Dakota for sure. I hope they choose someone who can ACT!

  • LC

    who cares what you ppl think? she's 100% gonna choose selena!Dakota is too young and ugly! Taylor can't act and selena is a multi talented and really beautiful!

  • Marissa

    Defenitley Dakota! First off, I love Taylor, but I think she should stick to small, cute rolls that aren't very serioius. And for Selena, well she's a Disney star and that's not very bad it's just dakota is definitley the best! She's intense!

  • emma

    I'd pick selena! she's gorgeous and a good actor

    This is Selena's movie 100% no doubt. Taylor Swift & Dakota fanning are great actresses... especially Dakota. But it'll all come down to Selena & Dakota facing off for the role. Ad there is no doubt in my mind that Selena will get the role. 'Cause she totally deserves it!

  • dakota

    i like all of them, but there shouldn't even be a choice in this. it's dakota. shes one of the best actresses of the young generation. the girl has been in the business since she was 6. she's been in big movies with big actors. for a 16 year old girl, she's a good actress, compared to others. i would rather watch selena on TV, thats just my opinion. taylor swift- i like her music, but the acting thing just wont work for her.

  • dakota
    dakota

    dakota should get the part hands down. no affense to taylor or selena, but taylor is a singer. not an actress. she should stick to singing. selena is an 'okay' actress. i'd rather her on TV. dakota has been in the business since she was 6, and shes an amazing actress. she should get it hands down.

    Selena has a talent and is a good actress!Dakota is good too but is younger and may not be mature enough for the role! Taylor Swift ..... omg who was the idiot that told her she could act?!?!?!?!?!!

    How do all of them fit the same character? Selena's is 17 and Mexican/Italian, Dakota is 16 fair skined and blues eyes. and Taylor is 6ft tall and 20 yrs old! I've never read the novel, so I can't tell who fits the description best. I would love for the role to go to Selena so people can take her seriosly as an actress becuase she is very talented. But if the character isn't a petite Hispanic brunete, than the role should go to Dakota. I love Taylor, but her acting skills aren't amazing. I wish all 3 the best!!!!!!

    Well, I don't see the point of this "battle" because I only see one actress: DAKOTA. I like Selena's "Waverly Place" but that's it. She's not ready for a big role. And Taylor, I like her music.

  • deshane

    I wouldn't mind seeing Dakota. She's the most established actress out of the 3 of them, and she's proven she can do all kinds of movies.

    i agree, Dakota Fanning would be the best. Taylor Swift sucked in Valentine's Day! she can't play, she should focuse on her singing career only

  • Andy
    Andy

    Selena!! This might be her break from the "Disney" Image and she is te only one from that factory that can actually act! She all the way.. Dakota is good but she is too young for the role! And Taylor should def stick to sing/songwriting.

  • James
    James

    Please get Dakota Fanning for this! i love her so muuch!!!

    Dakota, by far! Taylor really isn't a actress, Selena hasn't got enough experience for the role. I like Taylor and Selena but Dakota is the better actress out of all of them. : )xx

  • phoebe

    I personally do not like Selena at all but that's just my opinion I think Dakota has overall more experience Taylor did pretty well in valentine's day but let's face it ANYONE could have done that role it was more having fun than actual acting and there's nothing wrong with that but I think she should stick with singing

  • 13moviefan

    I think dakota fanning would be the PERFECT CHOICE for the role. She's the real actress compared to taylor and selena. And besides, dakota fanning experienced so much in her acting career at her young age. Selena is also an actress but dakota fanning is MUCH better than her. Taylor Swift is a great singer. People are convinced how great she is in singing but i think acting is not meant for her. like what i've said, dakota fanning would be the PERFECT CHOICE FOR THE ROLE..=)

    Dakota is the only true actor of the three. so if they want a good movie Dakota Fanning Totally agree with you. Taylor is beautiful but acting is not good. Selena's acting is suck.

    Selena Gomez is a fantastic actress. Yes, a vast majority of Disney Channel stars couldn't act to save their lives, but she's an exception. She has great timing, delivery, and sincerity. I don't know much about this role, but I don't think she should be easily passed up for bigger roles just because people want to brush her off as a "Disney Channel actress".

  • selenafan101
    selenafan101

    selena sucks balls. and i love swifty, but she can't act to save her life. this should be a no brainer, dakota fanning can actually act and she isnt some teeny bopper from the friggin disney channel. Shut up. you dont know what you're talking about. SELENA ALL THE WAY!!!

    Dakota Fanning, because she's the only good and legitimate actor out of the 3 of them.

    Dakota Fanning, She has much more acting experience with taking on bigger roles, Selena just doesnt have the experience she is too Teeny Bopper, girl from the Disney Channel. Even though I love Taylor Swift she cannot act

    [quote=Casting expert]Uh, Selena and Taylor are actresses...? Dakota, without a doubt. I can't believe this question was even asked. Dude.... Selena was an actress before she was a singer and shes AMAZING at it.

  • jasmine

    hrm... Selena actually fits the role PERFECTLY and I know she'd be able to adapt to this role easily, but... the ONLY problem... is that she doesn't have blonde hair. Taylor.... shes a good and decent actress, but... i doubt for this kind of role. Dakota, her facial features fit well, blonde hair and all, but i think that Selena's face actually fits the role more. I think both Selena and Dakota can act this out well, but.... I honestly pictured Selena as the character -- except without blonde hair.

    I would pick Dakota. Selena would be my second choice because she does well with her show but can she break from that character. Taylor Swift would be the worst. From her role in Valentines Day, I wouldn't even think se owuld be a possibility to any casting agents. She sucked.

    They're all so different, why did the wrighter want these three? Taylor's tall, twenty and with blonde curls, Dakota's only fifteen and has just done a whole new genre of roles, and Selena's only done the "cute, funny girl" - roles. I'm guessing the wrighter's not looking for a perticular look...
