"This suprised me; my hallucinatory Edwards were usually better fed."

Why? *long suffering sigh* Why? Why don’t these Twilight casting directors ever listen to me??? This is like talking to Trollop or teaching platypuses or telling Brit Brit to wear knickers or asking Santa to whack Victoria so I can have Becks—I might as well ask them to box a kangaroo! I swear this is more frustrating than being trapped in a cave on a deserted island somewhere when I’m in dire need to fiddle with myself and there’s no BOB or handy porn! ARRGH!

Cast of Twilight movie (besides Ava from Grey’s Anatomy, I’ve never heard of these people):


(I was expecting a finger-lickin’ Nutella-licious mm mmmm Jasper after those heartless bastards brutally—BRUTALLY, I tell ya!—robbed me of an uber swoonsome Edward. What did they do instead? They picked a virgin dude who looks like he’ll keel over if I pinch him! Blech!)



Ashley Greene as Alice



Nikki Reed as Rosalie



Anna Kendrick as Jessica



Michael Welch as Mike



Justin Chon as Eric



Rachelle Lefevre as Victoria



Cam Gigandet as James

(Sweet jeezuz, FINALLY, eye candy. But, um, in what fucked up universe is James hotter than Edward?)









P.S. Thanks to Anan for this bit. All info from the Twilight Lexicon.

UPDATE: (Thanks Mallie!)

Kellan Lutz as Emmett

*sighs* Agreed. The only one I like is Ashley Greene as Alice, and I'm totally surprised to see they chose Kellan Lutz (though, okay, he isn't official. But if he's not Emmett I will eat .. well. I'll eat one of those stupid foot fetish things) .. but *shudders* They had to go and pick some of the worst cast in history didn;t they?!

Where's my Taylor Kitsch? My eye candy! The only hottie dies at the end of the movie. Jackson Rathbone, are you shitting me? He looks like a dog I would run over if it was in front of me (okay, no I wouldn't, I'm not that callous but seriously. Jasper is supposed to be hot, and what do we get? a puppy dog)

*shudders* and I seem to remember reading somewhere.. hmm. I'm not sure where. oh, I know, IN THE BOOKS, that Rosalie was blonde. How hard is it to find a blonde in LA?!

*grumbles*

Hard to get pics; my connection is wacky!

Like the rest of them no idea who Kellan is but thanks, Mallie! I forgot to add him! You're right Emmett is the only one left..

I like Peter Facinelli's eyes...and James looks hot - well except for that picture of him with the cigarette. He looks a little freaky there!

Quite frankly - I haven't heard of any of them!

Marg, you and i both LOL.

I was looking into that Kellan's IMDB profile as i thought he looked familiar. Apparently he was that dude who played Clare's fiance in Heroes.

Ok, I HATED Eva on Grey's, and I think she's horrible for the part. Frankly, the only actor who kind of looks like what the characters look like in my head is this Michael Welch kid. Ugh. These people are ruining this for me. (Of course, we all know it was already ruined when they placed what's-his-butt as Edward...)

Um, bonus points for casting an Asian dude?

That Ava picture is scary.

I kind of like this cast. Not as good as the ones we all want but not bad - except for the Jasper kid. Carlisle is hot! He looks a bit like Christian Bale in that picture.

Mallie, they will probably dye her hair.

Question: Has it been mentioned in the books that Eric is Asian?

James looks hot. I think the actress they picked to play Victoria doesn't look that fierce. And she has to be, for New Moon and Eclipse (if they're going to make sequels).

Sigh.

I am not going to complain anymore. After I found out Cedric is going to play Edward, all my Twilight dreams came crashing down on me....

No more hope....

Any news on who is going to play Jacob?

I haven't heard of any of these actors. I think it is good they are looking for new faces to play the roles. If that boy who played Cedric didn't play Cedric in the Harry Potter movies, I believe many Twilight fans wouldn't have minded him playing Edward.

I think the only Asian in the series is Ben (Angela's boyfriend), and I'm not even sure if he's in the first book.

Looks like Kellan Lutz is confirmed as Emmett too (I would post some proof but it won't let me soo.. you'll have to take my word for it until the Twilight LExicon is back - http://www.twilightlexiconblog.com/)

Well. At least he's hot. Since when is Emmett hotter than Edward though? :P Yummy.

Dance, I'm 80% sure Ben is not in the first book. ust 80 heh heh....

Mallie, thank heavens for small favors. Kellan Lutz is hawt! He's no Taylor Kitsch though :-(

Hey, speaking of Tim, I heard NBC isn't renewing Friday Night Lights for a 3rd season? God knows the writers strike affected a lot of shows and cut off FNL's 2nd season but they cannot NOT renew my favorite show on tv!!

Ah, defeat. The only one left is Jacob. What are the chances we'll get Steven Strait?

Oh yes. Henry didn't audition :-(

According to his site...
http://henrycavillfan.com/

Here at HCF, rumors are stopped as soon as they are started and we have another rumor to squelch! Many Henry fans will be happy or sad to hear that Henry Cavill will not be in the movie Twilight. Message boards have lit a glow with hopes and dreams of Henry being Edward or Carlisle Cullen in Summit-Entertainment's newest production Twilight. Henry's talent agency has confirmed that Henry was offered the script but turned it down; he did not audition for any role in the film.

That kid who will play Jasper looks sickly. Sigh. I sure hope these kids can act.

I can't imagine why Henry turned down the role. Was it because of The Tudors? He let a lot of fans down.

"I think the only Asian in the series is Ben (Angela's boyfriend), and I'm not even sure if he's in the first book."

I can't remember. For some reason I keep thinking Angela is Indian and that she is the only Asian character in the series.

Re: Henry not auditioning

Frankly I can't think of a good reason why. To be included in this movie is a big opportunity for any young actor. Didn't he know Twilight is the Harry Potter of teenage girls and vampire lovers?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! This can't be true! 2nd season was already cut in half, not to mention the story is not fucking finished! What is this, MY SO CALLED LIFE? (Ohgad, i remember Jordan Catalano. Had the BIGGEST crush on that dude. And then they just cut it off, grrr...)


Um, Petra, I don't think Angela is Indian LOL. Er, is she? Yikes, i have to reread before BREAKING DAWN. :/

I am pissed too, basically Henry was OFFERED the script, he could probably have pick any role he wanted and they would have probably given it to him.

Anan, that is so true. I really don't get it--WHY? Did anyone get any explanation? As far as teen movies/teen books go, i think there is nothing bigger than TWILIGHT right this moment.

P.S. Saw JUMPER last night and saw our Bella (Kristen). :/ She barely had a line.

I am so disappointed with Henry! It would have been amazing to see him play Edward. I can't see him as Carlisle though.

Any news on who is going to be Jacob?

Not sure about Jacob, there was a casting call from the movie ppl looking for someone of Native american decent and is willing to commit for future films (planning ahead for sequels). So I think Steven Strait (sp?) who is the fan favourite would be out. I don't believe Steven has Native american heritage in his family; he was born in New York or somewhere in the area.

Angela is white, I'm pretty sure. I think Ben as her boyfriend was one of those tidbits Meyer let out before she actually wrote it into the series. And he's Asian and short and into nerdy Asian stuff. Eric Yorke (Yorkie?) wasn't described as Asian, but he's a minor enough character that I don't think it matters who plays him.

I really don't get it--WHY? Did anyone get any explanation? As far as teen movies/teen books go, i think there is nothing bigger than TWILIGHT right this moment.

Perhaps teen flicks aren't the direction he wants his career to go? Maybe he has another project on the line? Maybe he didn't like the script? Maybe it wasn't enough money? *shrug*

I don't know if I just recognize the name because of the Twilight fandom, but it seems like Cavill is a bit better known than the people they're casting.

Re FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS.

Radar: Quick question! A lot of us are happy that you've kept Friday Night Lights on the air despite lousy ratings. It's totally the best show on TV. But is there going to be another season?
Silverman: Do you watch 30 Rock? That's the best show on TV.

Radar: Not regularly. But what about FNL?
Silverman: Start watching 30 Rock. It's the best show on TV.

Radar: I don't want to watch 30 Rock. I want to watch FNL. I love it.
Silverman: I love it. You love it. Unfortunately, no one watches it. That's the thing with shows. People have to watch them. We're NBC, we have a reputation to uphold. And, man, with this writers' strike ... well, we'll see what we can do. But start watching 30 Rock.

[Silverman is NBC's head of something or rather. Source.]

Just like Veronica Mars. Sigh. But if it does end on whatever episode it was that aired last week, I'll be okay with it. I don't mind the open-endedness when it feels like it's at least upbeat for most of them. And the way the show goes, I think open-ended suits it.

Start watching 30 Rock? WTF

re: Steven

I shouldn't hope I know. Sigh.

I don't want to be too negative because they haven't even start filming yet but every time I see the decision on the characters I immediately think how wrong they are for the roles. I blame myself. I love the series so much nothing short of perfect will do.... :-(
