This sounds harsh, but I feel that nepotism is what got Nikki the part. If that's the right word. I'm sure she's a good actress, but at this point, it doesn't matter for Rosalie.
The character's most defining trait is her appearance and not personality. Which is what I believe should be brought out...and that doesn't really need a good actress. I mean, how hard would it have been to find a natural blonde to play the part?
If Nikki Reed had to be in the film so bad, she could have played Jessica or someone. I'll be frank. She's not pretty enough to play Rosalie.
Nepotism would come into play if she was related to a casting dir or something like that, I haven't heard that...Rose may not act much in this film, but that doesn't mean they should just hire a pretty girl, if the rest of the books are made, they will need someone with some chops...plus, she does have to act in this film and I personally, would hate it if the actress who played Rose was beautiful, but unconvincing.
