They're creepy and they're kooky, mysterious and spooky, they're all together ooky, the Cullen family!

Summit Entertainment couldn’t personally come to my home and sucker punch me in the heart so they did the next best thing:



This is what will happen if Cousin It and La Pequeña Prohibida get together to do the universe harm and fucking procreate. Half tacky wig, half transvestite horse, all ug-ly. Oh, for fuck’s sake... kill me, kill meeeeee...





Los Angeles, CA February 19, 2007—Summit Entertainment announced today that it has rounded out the cast of the Cullen family in the first installment of its filmed franchise, Twilight. The family of vampires, to which the leading male character Edward Cullen belongs, will be comprised of actors Peter Facinelli as Carlisle, Elizabeth Reaser as Esme, Jackson Rathbone as Jasper, Nikki Reed as Rosalie, Ashley Greene as Alice and Kellan Lutz as Emmett.

“Finding six talented actors who can portray supernaturally beautiful, talented vampires of the sort Stephenie Meyer has created and her fans have come to know and love was not an easy task but we are happy to say we have found our perfect Cullen family,” said Erik Feig, Summit’s President of Production.

Hmm, so I hate to say it, but Cedric Cullen...Edward Diggory...looks kind of hot here...

*ducks*

Ok, maybe first pic only. The last one he looks a bit possessed. And they changed the hair of the really hot one and made him less hot to me. And Carlisle is so not attractive.

OMG. I thought the first pic isn't that bad but then if you look closer you'll see Carlisle mimicking a blond manequin and Jasper and Alice looking just plain weird - what is up with THAT hair?

I hate to say this but for a "supernaturally beautiful" vampire family, they look very very bad :S

I have to agree with you on the bad wig. But, umm maybe it's just the pic?? They are all badly dressed as well. Except Edward, just the type of clothing I imagine he wears.

Uhg, these pictures are awful. Maybe the makeup and photog. are partially to blame.
I think this movie is going to suck.

You know i *might* overlook the freaky weird wigs but for the love of all that is holy, why why why are they wearing GYM clothes??? The Cullens are FILTHY FUCKING RICH! RIIIICH i say!!!

Oh god. This movie is going to suck. :(

This is not the cedric diggory kid, is it? what happened to him? He's ugly and short; isn't edward really tall?

Edward looking like he was 17 forever is what kind of repulsed me about the book. Guys that age are usually gawky and weird and their bodies are yucky! So not a nice age to be stuck in for a man lol

Also, for some reason the people in this picture look like their doing a rapper excercise video.

This is too funny! LOL

Oh shut up! It's not funny! :@

This is like a nightmare really. It's like the movie has no budget. I think TWILIGHT is the biggest teen book right now, even bigger than HP. I just mean HP is over; TWILIGHT is only beginning. And with the upcoming movie, a lot of focus and talks revolving it. Casts that don't mirror the characters in the books, stupid pictorials like these.. Guh. They are not doing the book any justice.

I remember when they were still making the first HP movie. All things coming out regarding the production, the cast, they were all wonderful and made me very excited to see the movie. It's not happening with TWILIGHT.

Taylor Kitsch is busy... This movie could be so horrible, but at least it will have the pretty! (collectively, too.)

If we could just get Scott Porter (comic book geek) involved...

Oh wow, i lurve Gambit. When i used to watch the cartoons he was the one i like hee. Wolverine was too hairy and Cyclops was just, er, too stiff--and not in a good way.

Yeah, this is a bit of a disappointment. It's not going to be good. Unless something happens to turn it around e.g. the actors are fantastically brilliant. But for some reason I dont see that happening =(

This is a bad omen. It's as if they are not making a big movie but only one of those you air directly on TV.

Everytime i see these pictures i want to retch. It's not that the didn't get the actors i wished they would have gotten. I was over at Twilight Lexicon and people there are saying how "amazing these pics are", how "wonderful Alice hair looks like", how "Jasper is so hot" *barf* etc etc. I'm beginning to think i'm blind or my eyes are deceiving me. Do all really think, with this pooooorly done pictorial, this is the bleeding BEST Twilight cast?

Ditto to the 'low budget' feel. I hate to make comparisons but I remember the first HP movie pics, the ones in Vanity Fair were so awesome. I think they should have shot the pics on location like in the Cullen's house or something to give it more of a Twilight feel.

People on the twilight lexicon mentioned that these were testshots, I'm not familiar with the movie industry but I'm guessing it means that this won't neccessarily be the final look of the Cullens in the movie. So there is still hope for Alice and Jasper's hair!

Low budget feel indeed. I'm with Trollop on the hiphop video.

I agree with Harlot and Anan. I didn't particularly like the first HP movie but I loved the PERFECT cast and the way the movie was made. It was as if you leapt into the book to see the wizarding world and wonders of wonders, it looked exactly the way you imagined it - and more.

Testshots? I have no idea what that is. Alice and Jasper's hair look really funny. Hopefully when they release the 'real' shots, it wouldn't look like they had their hair cut by a chainsaw. LOL!

Maybe this is just Summit's way of saying they got the Cullens together, to see how the cast will look together. Still, major iiikkk! Carlisle and Rosalie have bad dye job while Alice and Jasper have bad wigs on. Rob looks really weird, too.... I know they can't make it exactly as the book but this this is too disappointing, and believe me when I say I've already prepared myself for the worst.

Per the new rules/manifesto, you are not allowed to say negative things about anything related to Twilight/Stephenie Meyer on the Lex, though you may infer that Bella is a slut. Which is basically when I stopped going over there.

I never really appreciated movies adapted from books except for HP1. Just the fact that Henry Cavill isn't playing Edward is a disappointment.

And I agree, it does have a low budget feel. Edward doesn't look too bad in the second pic.

WTF? What is this, blowapalooza? You can't say the wares are bad or you'll be kicked out but you can call the lady of the house a whore.

Awful pics. I really, really hope the script is good and that these actors can act.

Rapper video? That is too funny. I was thinking the girls in these pics reminded me of Sporty Spice when the Spice Girls did their first go around. What is up with the puffy jackets?
and that blonde hair? OMG, it looks like a Saturday Night Live spoof.
If these were indeed test shots, They should have kept them to themselves.
and gee, if you have to make a mandate that no negitive comments are allowed on a website, maybe that's a hint to the movie people that you're going to wrong way!?

Apparently, the irony is just too difficult to comprehend. The former = bad fan; the latter = having an (approved) opinion.

Oh, Twilight fandom, I think you are runner up for Most Insane.

I agree with this. The pictures are REALLY bad. They make the movie look like a joke, or one of those no budget movies they air in Hallmark. Or maybe that's really Summit's evil agenda--show us UGLY pics! So when they finally show us the movie, if it sucks too much we can say, at least it's an improvement compare to the testshots. :S

There are rumours about Taylor Lautner or Gregory Tyree Boyce being cast as Jacob. I have no idea who either of them are or where this information is from. It showed up on my flist today, though.

Heh. Much as I respect anyone's right to do whatever they want on their own site, I think that fandom is remarkably rabid.

UPDATE: More pics of the cast--with Stephenie on her website.

[As i wrote on chatbox] Not only does this Jasper looks like meanie 3rd graders would kick his ass, it looks like, as Mallie says, his wig is going to come and eat you.

What do you guys think? Any improvement from yesterday's cast pics?

I keep trying to see the positive side of all of this. They said the cast photos were test shots. OK. But now we have these new pics. Are these test shots too?

Stephenie looks good. Bella and Edward look high. Jasper's hair looks SCARY!

According to the Lexicon, Billy Burke will play Charlie.
