    I didn’t recognize the character’s name, but then I read the description and thought, “Oh, THAT guy.”

    • Isabel

      Yeah, basically my response too. He’s good enough I guess? I had always kept that character nondescript.

  • ToriBella

    So the scumbag at the root of Rosalie’s heartbreak has been cast… cool.

  • Angela

    So, that means they are adding Rosalie’s little talk to Bella in the movie. Interesting, I thought they would have dropped all the personal stories. I wonder if they are going to add Jaspers too.

    • Michelle

      If they have Rosalie’s they BETTER have Jasper’s! Jasper’s is so much more interesting, plus it’s relative to the Victoria plot. We need him to explain the newborn phenomenon.

      Even I’m not terribly fond of Rosalie I’m glad their including her backstory. I thought for sure it would get cut!

      • megan

        I agree Jasper’s backstory is the best one.

      • Briana

        Jackson has told Larry Carroll at the Teen Choice awards that he was learning how to horseback ride. I think we’re good. His back story will be included.

      • Frank

        Jasper’s back story is definitely in the film.

    • Mel

      Yes, they are adding Jasper’s back story as well. I saw Jackson being interviewed at the Teen Choice Awards and he was talking about how he is alternating between horse riding lessons and combat training. I’m pretty sure the only personal story they aren’t including is Alice’s, because Catherine cut the storyline out of Twilight and they couldn’t work it back in. Such a shame. Ashley looked really upset about it in an interview.

  • megan

    I didnt recognize the character’s name either and then I read the rest of the article..Im not really to concerned about it though. I look forward to the movie versions of the rest twilight saga!

  • Stella Hemloch

    Yes, I did the whole “Who is that?” when I read his name too, but then it all clicked in as I read the rest of the article. I’m very happy that they are including both Rosalie’s and Jasper’s back stories. Rosalie’s conversation with Bella is really important as it explains Rosalie’s history and also warns Bella as to what she’s getting herself into. Jasper’s story is important to the plot as well as it gives the family an idea of what to expect from the newborns. It seems like these two new directors (and the screenplay writer) is sticking more closely to the books and leaving more in. I’ve watched Twilight a dozen times and read the book just as often and the movie disappoints me over and over again. This franchise is going to have better sequels and you rarely find that in movies these days.

      I agree with Stella. I have only read the series once, but when I read it, I did a power read and finished all four books in one weekend, culminating with the movie on Sunday night. I was extremely disappointing in the movie, compared to the books. It was like it moved too fast. I kept finding my self saying, “what about….?” Also, I was looking for a lot more of the long looks and sensual energy. It was like Bella was “visual” and quick and moving through too quickly. Give me back the kinesthetic soft, slow 3 pages for a touch on the cheek! I think all the back stories are important as they are all significant.

  • Lauren

    He looks perfect for the role. :)

  • Yesenia

    Ohhhhh now I know this guy. He is Cat Deeley’s boyfriend- she hosts So You Think You Can Dance. He looks great for the part but I am more excited about Jasper’s story too.

    • Virginia

      He is!? Love her! That is precious :) I think he’ll do great

  • Cole9219

    Me too, Ryan. Eclipse is probably the only Twilight movie I’d see in theatres because it is my fave book. It has awesome backsories for Rosalie and Jasper!!!

  • GS

    Since reading all the books this summer, I’m really curious to see how they adapt them all to movies. They get so much longer and go so in depth that it’s going to be hard to capture enough for Eclipse and Breaking Dawn especially make any sense on the big screen. I’m also glad to see the back stories brought in. Both really helped me like those characters since before knowing what had happened I just didn’t care about either.

    • Liz

      Have you ever heard of a little series called Harry Potter? They adapt all of those books for movies (albeit not well) and book 4 and up are all longer than any of the Twilight books.

  • Bilbo’s B 4 Ho’s

    I would think Rosalie’s back story would be especially important IF they were going to go ahead and make a Breaking Dawn movie – which sounds crazy, have no clue how they’d do that…not sure that I even want them to. It would be bizarre.
    Just curious – does anyone really think there will be a Breaking Dawn movie?

    • mscisluv

      Many of the cast members have already signed on for Breaking Dawn, and it is listed on the Summit website.

  • Liz

    I would be more excited if this was about Jasper’s back story. I feel like Jasper is the best character in the entire story and his back stroy is AWESOME! I am super excited now.

  • NICK

    The leaked french trailer keeps getting taken down but there’s tons of screenshots of it here- http://www.crazycritics.com/page/new-moon-teaser-trailer-is YOUR WELCOME!!

  • Syd

    If he has short hair I don’t think that he’ll be to bad.

  • Heather

    They’ve cast Maria so Jasper’s story will be included.

  • Felicia

    I LOVE this actor – but THIS part? The guy is supposed to clean clean cut and polished whitebread sort – his looks are dark and mysterious, like a pirate…I thought they’d cast him as a werewolf before this role. In that culture it would have been hard for him going around looking all swarthy.
