Now that we know Beautiful Disaster will be gracing the silver screen, the first question on everyone’s lips is the same- who will be playing Travis Maddox?!? Travis is described as “lean, cut, and covered in tattoos” and we know he must be incredibly handsome or every girl he comes across would not be falling all over him. Tattoos can be faked, as can eye color and hair color, but the actor who plays Travis “Mad Dog” Maddox will certainly need to be in peak physical condition to be believable as a bare knuckles fighter and drool worthy love interest for Abby Abernathy. With so many handsome chiseled actors out there to choose from, we want to know who your ideal Travis Maddox would be!

The poll is now closed. Thank you for voting!

    Why is Kellan Lutz not an option?? He is exactly what I picture- look and personality when I read the book. (not the vampire version of Kellan Lutz…..the version in “Love, Wedding, Marriage” and “A Warrior’s Heart”.

  2. Mrs. Abby “Pigeon” Maddox says:

    YAAAAAAAY!!! My Nicholas Jonas is winning:’) he’s my ideal Travis Maddox, can’t picture anyone else!

  3. Caroline says:

    Ryan Guzman is perfect, he’s exactly who I pictured when I was reading the book and he is a professional MMA fighter as well as an actor so he would be a perfect fit for Teavis.

  4. LM says:

    If you picked Nick Jonas, I doubt that you even read the book. Google image search Daniel Conn, he is the perfect Travis.

  5. Amanda says:

    I don’t know what book you are reading if you picture Nick Jonas. Must be a joke and half of those guys are too old to play Travis. Most don’t look like a college kid and are in their 30’s. Ryan Guzman is the best on the list.

  6. Bárb. says:

    I’m Jonatic, a PROOOOOUD Jonatic, but… Nicholas isn’t perfect for this, Because he’s so… sweet n’ a nice boy, and Travis is a f***in sexy bad boy.

  7. Jess says:

    i dont understand how nick jonas has gotten so many votes, he is completely wrong for this .. its supposed to be a sexy type film not a disney movie

  9. Boomshakalaka says:

    Yeah, you guys need to read the book again. It’s totally Kellan Lutz. Just give him some brown contacts and tattoos and he’s Travis. Kay, thanks.

    coltan haynes or ryan guzman from this list r my choices…i like chris hemsworth but he’s too old for this and i also like kellan lutz or steven r mcqueen…or if matt shadows was an actor i think he would b great ..but JAY RYAN! would be perfect! ….plz let it not be a jonas plzzzz!

  11. EdieC says:

    Nick Jonas? This is an adult book, why do we have teeny boppers voting for things they should not be reading & probably havent. I say Chris Zylka, Colton Haynes or Steven R Mcqueen ( just wondering if he might be to sweet looking) but since he bulked up for this past season of VD, he might be able to pull it off. Chris is still my number 1 though.

  12. Arizbeth Pigeon says:

    Nicky Jonas!!! He’s perfectly sexy for it!!! And, (coff, coff) I could be your Abby.. Just think about it! 1313

  13. Kristina says:

    Not nick jonas lets be real guys. Top three choices would be Colton Hayes, Cam Gigandet,and Ryan Guzman. These three guys have the PERFECT look to the and they could totally pull of the role of Travis. Nick jonas on the other hand..cannot. and i second Melissa Benoist as Pidge for sure.

  14. courtney says:

    Nick Jonas would ruin the story, hes awful. I would love Cam, but I think he looks a little to old for the part… Idk who Colton hayes is but he looks the closest from what I could picture

  15. Nicole says:

    ”Nick Jonas is perfect”…. What?!
    I doubt that you even read the book if you picked Nick.
    (I’m italian and now i speak my language).

    Dubito fortemente che voi abbiate letto il libro ragazze/i!
    Sul serio come fate a dire che Nick è perfetto? Io mi sparo piuttosto che vederlo fare Travis Maddox! Il mio Travis Maddox!!
    (Non sono l’unica a pensarlo) Mi dispiace solo di non essere arrivata prima per votare. 😦
    Penso proprio che voi abbiate letto il libro sbagliato se venite a dirmi che Nick Jonas o Randy Orton o Beau Mirchoff (anche se è un figo) siano perfetti per Travis!
    (Non ho niente contro Nick!)

    Ok, ora mi sono sfogata e posso andarmene.
    Ps. Ciao Ritz! Scusa ma dovevo sfogarmi!

  16. Tejasvini says:

    Nick Jonas?? Are you ******* kidding me?!! What’s his name even doing there among the options? o.O
    P.S.- Ryan Guzman or Colton Haynes all the way! (y)

  17. Mary says:

    Ryan Guzman is LACKING people!! CAM GIGANDET would be the best Travis Maddox, since his movie “Never Back Down” he can totally pull off all the fight scenes and manage to be sexy as hell the whole damn movie, doesnt matter what scene… No fan would be disappointed, my Opinion.

  18. paula says:

    zayn malik seria un perfecto travis solo necesita subir de peso un poco por que tiene el color de piel perfecto, los tatuajes, los musculos es lo unico que le faltaria pero en todo lo demas es perfecto

  19. ruth says:
