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.

No More Solomon?

I was very sad to read that Solomon Trimble will not be back as Sam Uley in New moon:

My agent heard from Summit Entertainment today that I will not be reprising the role of Sam in “New Moon.” While I will cherish the experience of being involved in the first film, I am looking forward to many new opportunities in the future and would like to thank everyone for their support.

If this is true, I’m sure Summit and Chris Weitz had their reasons, but I for one saw absolutely nothing wrong with Solomon. I will miss him. While I think that Bronson Pelletier is a cutie, I do hope he wasn’t cast as Sam. He doesn’t look like he could possibly be gritty enough for the role.

Here’s a vid from fanpire246, too, that shows how great Solomon would have been.

Bronson Pelletier

According to Carrier Talent Management:

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-staring with Dakota Fanning.

According to HollywoodChicago.com:

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”.
