Hayley Mcfarland, huh? I think you may have something there.

Yeah, she has those huge doe eyes that just make me want to swoop in on a rope to protect her.  (Where did the rope came from and why am I waiting to swoop?  I have no idea.)  She just has that vulnerability that may just be perfect for Vin.  She looks to have the acting chops too.  She is in Lie to Me on Fox and if you haven't seen it, do.  It is fantastic and she is great (she does have an admittedly minor role tho, so she isn't in every episode.)

At the risk of sounding all fanboi...

Director - JOSS FREAKING WHEDON!!! (He'd be awesome with this sort of script.  Especially if he read the books.  He's the kind of guy that would really get into Mistborn).
Kelsier - Nathan Fillion
Vin - Summer Glau WOULD be awesome, but I always pictured Vin more like Ellen Page (sp?)
Elend or Zane - Christian Kane (His physique would be covered up in the rumpled clothing in the first movie if he played Elend)
Straff - Oddly enough, I always pictured David Boreanaz in 20 more years whenever I read about Straff

OK, I guess I didn't so much risk sound like a Whedon fanboi as outright showing my true colors, huh?

McFarland could do well, and she is fantastic on Lie to Me.

However much I love Joss Whedon and his posse, I don't think they could do Mistborn justice. They could nail Warbreaker though (IYKWIM, AITYD).

I watch Lie to Me all the time. She is totally not Vin. I could almost buy her as Shallan though.

I think that if she has any sort of acting chops, she would be able to pull off Vin. I haven't seen any of her work besides Lie to Me, she doesn't look like the Vin in my head, and her mannerisms don't seem like they would fit the part well, but I don't think it's too much of a stretch to say that she could do a good Vin. Whether or not she would is another matter.

Yeah, it's easy for me to assume when I've seen someone in one role that that's what they're always like. Especially when it's often true. I mean, Bruce Willis is always Bruce Willis.

Except in Unbreakable  I saw a somewhat different Bruce Willis in that one. 

For me its Samuel L Jackson is always Samuel L Jackson.  I'm glad I haven't seen anybody throw his name in here for any of the characters.
