'86 Rabbit

A FANGirl's Forkstress of Solitude

Random Rob

Thanks, simple265, for putting this interview up on YouTube.  I had fun watching it watching Hayley Williams and Rob Pattinson interview each other.

Thanks, doseca1, for putting this Rob interview on YouTube. This might be the best interview I’ve seen with Rob talking about playing Edward. Rob, I love that you want the New Moon movie to be so true to the book that you hope you aren’t in the bulk of the movie, but I disagree about the ‘vignettes’. I think that showing a tortured Edward here and there could work, if written the right way. For example, cutting back and forth between Edward going to the Volturi and Alice and Bella racing to Italy could add some tension that might otherwise be difficult to portray with just two girls rushing to catch a flight and then sitting there for nine hours.

Thanks, B96 Showbiz Shelly, for posting this interview of Rob in Chicago while on the Twilight tour on YouTube. It’s always fun to watch him squirm while talking about the SQUEEing Fangirls.

Ok, so this isn’t a Rob interview, it’s a Dakota interview, but she does talk about Rob. And how cute is she?!? Thanks, xlovesit91x, for posting this on YouTube.

Caius is Cast

 

IMDB.com

 

MTV.com is reporting that Caius will be played by Jamie Campbell-Bower, who played in Sweeney Todd. He certainly looks the part to me. It seems Summit will be going with young actors for the Volturi. I may have to rethink my casting.

I think I like him already (from the MTV article):

Although he was quick to divulge his own casting in the movie, he said he couldn’t talk about anyone else who might be joining the cast. “I do know who else will be in it — but I can’t tell you, unfortunately. But go online and have a look at the rumors,” he said, adding, “They’re all false. You’re putting me in a terrible situation.”

Closeted Unicorn?

I accused OMB of secretly reading Twilight last night. He of course admits nothing. Here’s what happened. You decide.

Last night we went to see Monsters vs Aliens (In 3-D! So fun!). When we got home the following exchange occurred.

OMB: Oh I forgot to tell you. When I went to get our Cokes the guy’s name tag said Jasper H.

Me: (staring dumbfounded, thinking, “Kudos to him for recognizing the name Jasper, but too bad it didn’t say Jasper C,” then, “Wait, H is perfect! Wait! How did he know that?!?) I don’t think that’s his real name.

OMB: I don’t think the theater would let them use ficticious names.

Me: (gathering my wits about me) You’re reading Twilight aren’t you!

OMB: No.

Me: Well then how…

OMB: …did I know that Jasper’s last name is Hale? They said it in the movie.

Me: They did? And you just happened to pick up the one time they may have mentioned it? I don’t think they mentioned it.

OMB: Well maybe I picked it up from one of the extras on the DVD.

Me: (questioning look) And you just picked it up from that?

OMB: I’m not reading Twilight.

Interesting Story

I came across this fanfic while tag surfing for Twilight stuff. At least I hope it’s fanfic and not a cry for relationship help in fanfic clothing. It’s a Twi-related Choose Your Own Adventure story essentially. The writer gives us a dialogue set 10 years from now in which a man has just found out he’s his wife’s Jacob, not her Edward. Check it out.

WOW! I hope that is a lot of different people suddenly going audition crazy now that New Moon filming has started. I really hope it’s not one obsessed Stage Mom trying to get her lovely daughter the Renesmee role.

Is There Really A Volturi? Seriously? Good luck in your search. If you find anything non-Twilight-related let me know…in a non-provoking-them-kind-of-way. A tip for the future. Go to Wiki, or just type Volturi into Google. You don’t have to ask Google a question; it just knows.

Ashley Greene’s Midnight Appearance

Have you really never been to Letters to Twilight? It’s an amazing Twilight blog with a quirky sense of humor. UnintendedChoice and Themoonisdown run the place and they have been on an excellent adventure this weekend. They were at the very same Hot Topic where Ashley Greene made her Midnight Release Party appearance. You can read all about it, and a special guest appearance by The Amazing Race’s Kynt, here. There’s more to the story at the companion site, Letters to Rob. What? You haven’t heard of Letters to Rob either?

Volturi Casting

Relax, this isn’t anything official. These are just my picks. I know, I know, I should have made a video for YouTube like everyone else does. I’ll be honest. I don’t know how to made one of those. Gimme a break. I’m old. I have looked at YouTube vids though, and I’ve found a whole lot of Ben Barnes out there. Twilighters seem to unanimously want him to be in New Moon in some Voluturi capacity, mostly as Demetri. I like him as Aro, but what do I know? I know I’d like to hear him speak a whole lot more than Demetri does. I know that!

Since Summit decided on young Dakota Fanning for Jane, I’m going to assume they are going to try to keep as many vampires as possible within the reader demographic even those whose ages aren’t really assigned in the books. They seem intent on rushing these films to screen so I don’t suppose aging vampires will be a problem. “Bring on the eye candy!” seems to be what they are going for. With that in mind, here are my picks. Eh, screw it. I’ll post my “old vampire” picks with the “eye candy”. Of course any of these vampires could be unknowns, but what fun would casting be then?

Picks and pics after the jump.

I know, right?

As per usual, I’m reserving judgement until I see the movie. I don’t want to get my hopes up again, only to have them dashed. Judging by the wolf pack that has been chosen, it’s looking promising though.

Thanks to ColdTwilight.com for these pics!

Sam Uley

I really would have liked Solomon Trimble to return as Sam. Chaske Spencer looks a little young, but I’m sure his acting skills will be up to par to play Sam.

Quil Ateara

Quil is probably the one I’m worried most about. He doesn’t look at all like I pictured, but as long as the personality is right, I’ll be happy. As one Twilighter said, “He’s adorkable.”

Paul

Paul…spot on! I hope he can act, as well as looking perfect for the part.

Embry Call

Embry looks good.

Jared

Jared 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 books.

Emily

Could they have found a more perfect Emily? I think not. Tinsel, I love your name.

Twilight: Not Just For Tweens

**Moved from original blog**
Twilight: Not Just For Tweens
Merry Christmas, Twilighters! Here’s a little something for you. As you know Ms. Meyer doesn’t agree with the label Young Adult Fiction or Teen Fiction. Neither do I. I agree with her that a good story is a good story, and should be enjoyed by anyone. I’ll go a step further and explain why these specific books should not be considered Tween books. I’ll grant you that the majority of the fans seem to be screaming tweens and young teens, but have you ever talked to any of them about the books? I have.

Recently I got a 13-year-old family member to join my coven. She read Twilight obsessively, but is plodding through New Moon. She’s mad at Edward for leaving. She hates Jacob for putting the moves on Bella. She’s bored with the rebuilding of motorcycles. She carries the book around with her but is too bummed to read it. I told her that life is never going to get any better for her or Bella unless she reads through the rough times. I’ve even marked the page where Alice comes back, but she still can’t make herself move on.
