    who cares ?

    I’m guessing a good portion of these people won’t even have any lines, so what is the point of announcing their casting as if it’s big news?

  • Nerwen Aldarion

    Because like it or not Breaking Dawn is going to be a big box office success fueled by the millions of Twilight fans and EW doesn’t want to ignore a big fanbase like that? Maybe that’s why EW is reporting it! My goodness this is the first Twilight piece of news in a while, it isn’t like when New Moon and Eclipse premiered and even I was sick of Twilight by then.

      What Nerwen said. Well other than the last sentence.

      Maybe that’s why EW is reporting it!
      Yeah, and it’s gotten a whopping seven comments. I remember when ANY Twilight post could rack up a few hundred in an hour or so. I think a lot of people have just stopped caring.
      And I agree with the poster below. EW posts this non-news, yet the sequel to the #3 movie of all time in the U.S. has a major casting update, and not a peep? EW could avoid the anti-Twihard sneers a lot more if they didn’t make bush-league errors in news judgment like that.

        WOW!!! You mean there is news on the new Batman movie?!!! Jeepers…why isn’t that reported? Not saying Breaking Dawn news shouldn’t be reported but come on!!! I’ve been looking forward to the next Batman film since I finished watching the last one!!!

  • Um

    Not that I begrudge EW its weekly “Fourth-tier Breaking Dawn casting updates of people who might as well be extras” posting, but Tom Hardy just signed on to the third Nolan Batman film. Possibly as a villain. Where’s the posting for that?

      The Complete “Larry Sanders Show” Series is finally coming to DVD early next month. Where’s the posting for that?! (Wait, what were we talking about?)

        I LOVE The Larry Sanders Show! thanks Mr. Holloway…maybe you can replace Ausiello cos that’s the best tv news I’ve heard here in awhile other than when EW reported Lea Michele experienced a methane event at an LA Taco Bell for its minute by minute Glee updates.

    The only reason I am at all interested is NADIA, Sayid’s real true love and whose absence was the source of my only major complaint about the Lost finale. She (the actress) deserves better than “member of the Egyptian coven in a Twilight movie” though…but hey, good for her for getting a job in a movie that will, I must admit, be a very big deal.

    Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to grasp so much about this, like you wrote the ebook in it or something. I think that you simply can do with some percent to drive the message house a bit, however other than that, this is magnificent blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.

    Remarkable issues here. I am very glad to look your post. Thank you so much and I’m looking forward to contact you. Will you please drop me a mail?

  • Yorleidis

    It’s simple like Steph waentd I’m sure. If it were me, It would be a strapless gown but with lace sleeves and the lave covering her chest, like a turtleneck. (hard to explain lol) and little pearl buttons down her back
