The thing with doing the Twilight fans at such a short time is, you'll never know when exactly they'll stop working on one and start on another. It's a hell of a lot, come to think of it--Twilight almost swept the MTV Movie Awards last Sunday (which was, let's face it, a given), New Moon just released its first trailer even if shooting is still underway, and Eclipse is already casting. Yep, Eclipse is already casting.
The third film in the Twilight saga, set to be directed by 30 Days of Night helmer David Slade, has begun looking for at least three characters. It's up and running, indeed, especially if you consider that they'll begin shooting the film in August. Here's who they're looking for, and how they describe the characters--well, sure, you know who they are, but it doesn't hurt to know, right?
Casting notice one: Riley, "a handsome, blond, clean-cut college boy who falls victim to Victoria" and "plays an integral role in Victoria's attempt to murder Bella Swan." They're looking for someone who's in his early to mid-20s.
Casting notice two: Seth Clearwater, "a tall, gangly-limbed boy with a huge, happy grin" who "idolizes Jacob."
Casting notice three: Leah Clearwater, who is "tall and slender with beautiful skin and short cropped black hair," and would've been considered beautiful if not for "the perpetual scowl she carries due to a broken heart and her anger issues." As with New Moon, they're hoping that Native American actors will fill the last two roles.
So, sure, that means Eclipse is in full swing, but what about Breaking Dawn? No official word yet, it seems. "I'm hoping that they make four," Peter Facinelli said during the MTV Movie Awards. "I mean, if New Moon does well, I think they'll make four."
Ashley Greene's hopes are, well, farther. "They're just going to have to make a Twilight Five," she quipped. "I will be forever known as a Twilight girl."
