Hollywood Crush has moved! come with us to mtv news »

If you perused our interview yesterday with "The Fault in Our Stars" producers Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen, then you are well aware the duo hopes to begin production on the big-screen adaptation of John Green's heart-wrenching novel as early as this summer. And with a director coming on board within the next couple of weeks, casting can't be far behind. Which leaves us wondering what young actress and actor would be well-suited to spend time in the literal heart of Jesus as Hazel and Augustus.

Today we're tackling the role of 16-year-old Hazel Grace Lancaster—an introverted cancer patient wise beyond her years. Keep reading after the jump for our picks, leave your own in the comments and be sure to come back tomorrow when we take a long hard look at Augustus Waters. (We have tough jobs...)

FROM MTV STYLE: The only real set-up you need for this clip is that, like most red-blooded women who've ever binge-watched the dearly departed drama "Friday Night Lights," actress Mae Whitman is Obsessed (capital "O") with Dillon Panther fullback Tim Riggins.

During an interview with "House of Style," the "Perks of Being a Wallflower" star declared her unrequited love for the character (and his alter ego Taylor Kitsch), revealing that she dressed up as 33 for Halloween.

"I love him in a way I haven't loved any other man," she gushed, before showing off her "Tim Riggins Day Dress" and issuing a heartfelt message to the Canadian actor.

Mae Whitman has played some notable girlfriends in the past, including Ann Veal on "Arrested Development" and Roxy Richter in "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World." In her upcoming movie, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," she'll play Mary Elizabeth, who is the first girlfriend for main character, Charlie (Logan Lerman). Mae recently talked to MTV News about her character's personality and the kind of personal journey that Mary Elizabeth takes over the course of the film.

"Mary Elizabeth was my favorite character just because of really the arc that she has," Mae said. "It's so important and beautiful. It's funny because she starts out so confident. I mean, she's just the most opinionated girl in the world and everything she says goes."

I'll be discussing GLEE Prom & MY real Prom!" If you can't wait for the episode, you can get a temporary "Glee" fix with their version of Rebecca Black's "Friday," which was just released.

With Mother's Day just around the corner, some stars were more excited about mom than prom. Jay DeMarcus showed his mother love with a aww-inducing tweet, "Back to Nashville for Mother's Day weekend!! Sorry to everyone but I have the best mother on the planet... None can compare...." Mom club member Denise Richards posted about a celebration with one of her little ones, tweeting, "Lola's class had a beautiful Mother's day tea for us moms..so lovely." Radio Disney's Jake Whetter asked followers what their Mother's Day plans were, "What are you doing for mom this Mother's Day?" Which reminds us, we should probably get on that...

Check out the rest of Friday's best tweets, including one star's plans for his 100,000th follower! Follow us @hollywoodcrush to get even more celebrity and pop culture news around the clock!

Nina DobrevNina Dobrev is taking a break from vampire love squares and sinking her teeth into one of Hollywood Crush's most hotly anticipated projects.

According to Deadline, Nina has scored the role of Candace in the film adaptation of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," which pretty much means this will be one of the best young adult adaptations ever made (or so we imagine). "Percy Jackson and the Olympians"' Logan Lerman and "Harry Potter"'s Emma Watson have already signed on for the two lead roles, and "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World"'s Mae Whitman has come on board in a smaller part.

This isn't Nina's first post-"Vampire Diaries" film, but it certainly is the one we're most excited for. She's also attached to the Samuel L. Jackson-starring "The Killing Game," where she gets to work alongside "Twilight"'s Kellan Lutz.
