Casting the Characters
Leonardo is great to play the role of Claudio because of the similar personality traits between the two. Leonardo's personality traits are described as a person that is down to earth and a practical thinker. Claudio is down to earth as he wanted someone else to win Hero over for him. Although he did have an angry reaction to Don John's plot against him and Hero, he was practical to think that he could not marry a women that has been so recently unfaithful to him.
Demi Lovato would be a great person to represent Beatrice because there are themes in her relationship with her boyfriend, William Valderramma, that are similar with the relationship between Beatrice and Benedick. A direct similarity is that when Demi openly expresses her interest in him to the public, he shows outwardly that he is embarrassed of the attention and interest in him. The same goes for Beatrice and Benedick. Beatrice had a hard time at the end of the story openly showing her love for Benedick, as she said she did not love him when asked at first. Demi's real-life experience with a relationship like that of Benedick and Beatrice makes her suitable for the part.
