Canadian Actor Bronson Pelletier Cast in ‘Twilight’ Sequel ‘The Twilight Saga’s New Moon’

CHICAGO – An actor from the Canadian series “Renegadepress” and Discovery Kids’ “Dinosapien,” Bronson Pelletier has been cast in the highly anticipated “Twilight” sequel “The Twilight Saga’s New Moon,” which is based on the book “New Moon” by Stephenie Meyer.

Pelletier joins the already announced Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Ashley Greene for the sequel. “The Twilight Saga’s New Moon” will be directed by Chris Weitz.

Vanessa Hudgens, Dakota Fanning, AnnaLynne McCord and Lucy Hale have been rumored for other roles. An open casting call in Canada recently brought in hundreds of hopeful “Twilight” fans looking for a role in their favorite franchise.

Carrier Talent Management, which is Bronson Pelletier’s management, broke the news on its own Web site with a posting that read: “Congratulations to Bronson who scores a lead role in the highly anticipated ‘Twilight’ feature film sequel ‘New Moon’. It’s rumored he will be co-starring with Dakota Fanning.”

As Summit Entertainment has yet to officially confirm the casting news, there’s no saying what role Bronson Pelletier will play.

“Twilight,” which stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Ashley Greene and Taylor Lautner from director Catherine Hardwicke, has grossed $189 million in the U.S. and $363 million total worldwide. This quickly put “The Twilight Saga’s New Moon” into production and has spawned many casting rumors. Other books in the Stephenie Meyer series include “Eclipse” and “Breaking Dawn”.

  2. I think he has a Seth vibe too. I think Bella only runs into him once in New Moon though. You can’t call that a lead. I wouldn’t say you could call any of the wolves leads except for Jacob, and he’s obviously not Jacob. The next closest to leads would be Quil and Embry because Bella sees them before and after Jacob turns. One of them was in Twilight, right? So maybe it’s the other one. I definitely don’t see him for Jared or Paul.

  3. Do we know what role he was cast in yet? I haven’t heard anything, other than everyone saying, like Moon did in her comment, that he’ll almost certainly be one of the La Push guys.

    Actually, speaking of casting, I remember reading a few days ago that they’re finished – WE NEED A CAST LIST! NOW!

  4. I’m afraid we won’t have an insider view of New Moon, like we did with Twilight. I thought it was odd that they put all those clips online during production, but I enjoyed it. Well, I couldn’t stay away. Maybe that’s a more accurate description. The end result was that I saw most of the movie before it came out and that sort of bummed me out. But I digress. What I mean to say is that there has been very little news in the way of what’s going on with New Moon since the director was announced. We might be seeing a stylistic difference here.

    I think he has to be one of the La Push boys. Is there anyone left from Forks High to cast? They seem to be combining Eric and Ben, so I’m guessing they aren’t casting Ben.

  5. […] looks good, too, I suppose. I didn’t think he’d be Jared before, because it was said that Bronson would be a lead. Jared isn’t nearly a lead in the […]
