Re: Twilight - The Movie

Too be honest, I'm not too thrilled about the casting. My opinion may/probably will change when I actually see the movie, but as it is...I think they could have done better. I don't have specific actors in mind, but...I don't know, they both just look so different from the image in my head.

Come to think of it, Quaid would probably been a good choice, but I've never pictured Charlie that...rugged. I've always pictured Charlie a bit more roundfaced and a bit, I dunno, roly-poly.

I always pictured Carlisle as like a blonder James Marsden, even if he is a good deal older than the character he's supposed to be playing.

Absolutly! He plays such a wonderful dad in so many other movies. I would love him for Charlie!

I wonder who they will cast as Jacob...

Me, too. I really liked who Stephenie picked out for her favorite on her website; Steven Strait, but he'd be way too old by now. He played in Sky High, in case ou din't know who I'm talking about.

Re: Twilight - The Movie

Update here. We have a new addition to the Cast!

Justin Chon is now playing an unnamed roll.

Pictures here!

Any thoughts people? My bet'd be either Ben or Tyler. I hope he's not Jacob, he's just not...Jacob-y enough.

That's a really good choice! I was thinking of him too when I thought about Charlie. He does look like the typical dad, doesn't he? I'm a bigger fan of Stephenie Meyer's dream cast, though.

Who could they have chosen, then? They can't search through every single actor to find someone that looks like the characters. It's not supposed to be possible to find Edward because he is described as being "inhumanly beautiful." And is there a single actor that can satisfy everyone's image of Edward or Bella? They have some similarities to how the character is described, but they don't look exactly like the Edward and Bella in my mind either. I respect your opinion, but I don't think judging casting decisions based on looks is fair. IMO, what's more important is how Robert Pattison and Kristen Stewart are going to portray the characters. I'd rather have actors that look somewhat like the characters but can act impeccably than actors that look a lot like the characters and can't act like the character at all.

I just saw that! I have no idea who he'd be . . . maybe one of the boys at school that is intrigued by Bella on her first day of school? He can't have a big role or else Stephenie Meyer would have said something, right?

Someone supposedly e-mailed his agency and asked, and they said he's playing Eric. This isn't a really trustworthy source, but it could very well be true.


I can't see Dennis Quaid as Charlie, for some reason. I pictured someone more like... Billy Crudup. But old-looking Billy Crudup.

Wait, who's Eric again? Sorry, I'm just drawing a blank here.

Re: Twilight - The Movie

Movie news! Justin Chon is Eric and Anna Kendrick is cast as Jessica.

Now I want to know who will play the Cullen family.

...Jacob Black and Alice Cullen COMING SOON? * goes "Gehee" really annoyingly* Still, very Jessica I like it.

P.S. My main Twilight site (twilighters.org) is announcing the casting of Cam Gigandet in the Twilight movie. Sources (probably quite unreliable ones) say that he will be playing James, which is very unlikely, because James is supposed to look Average, and lets face it, Gigandet looks absolutely incredible.

Perhaps Emmett, Jasper or Carlisle?

I think he'd make a good Carlisle. I'm hoping the info was wrong, but the person supposedly got this from his agency. This is how people found out who Justin was playing, too.

Twilight Lexicon is saying that he is James, according to some credible source. He doesn't really look like James in my head, but I don't mind. I haven't seen him act before, so I'll judge when I do. I really liked Stephenie Meyer's choice for her dream cast, Cillian Murphy. He was amazing in Red Eye.

I feel horrible for asking, but...who was James in the books?

James was like the main villain in Twilight, the one who wanted to hunt Bella in the end, remember?

Well, I think James is described as average looking. That probably means that he wasn't good-looking when he was human, but his looks were advanced so he looked average.
