Okay, between periods of the hockey game last night I thought long and hard about the issue of who to cast for what roles. Here's what I came up with. It'll be in several posts since I have limited URL's each post

Felix:
Stanislav Ianevski-
http://www.imdb.com/media/rm1530828800/ch0001022
http://z.about.com/d/movies/1/0/V/D/P/scifisummitpic45.jpg
or
Channing Tatum-
http://www.imdb.com/rg/mediasingle/thumbnail/media/rm3153499904/ch0048409
http://www.imdb.com/rg/mediaindex/thumbnail/media/rm3153499904/nm1475594


I really like Stanislav... I think he's got the size and looks.. plus he's got the accented voice (not like Felix talks much) but I think it could really work. Channing is partially here just because I like looking at him but he too has the size and looks.... He's also more experienced so maybe that works in his advantage?

Demetri:

Demetri:
Michael Rady-
http://www.imdb.com/rg/mediaindex/thumbnail/media/rm3206778880/nm1640279
or
Jason Behr-
http://www.imdb.com/rg/mediaindex/thumbnail/media/rm2625738752/nm0004736
or
Kyle Schmid-
http://www.imdb.com/rg/mediaindex/thumbnail/media/rm1254070784/nm0772704
or
Aaron Lohr-
http://www.imdb.com/rg/mediaindex/thumbnail/media/rm3647839488/nm0517909

I like Michael Rady becuase he looks more happy go lucky but I also do not think that Demetri has to be a big guy.. I liken him to a James (Cam Gigandet) type sizing. Jason Behr is really good, I've seen him in a lot of stuff (and yes, I was a Roswell fan) Kyle Schmid and Aaron Lohr are smaller names but I think they both have different selling points. And Aaron definitely fits the unknown or lesser known criteria most people here think is important.

Marcus:
Steven Strait-
http://www.imdb.com/rg/mediaindex/thumbnail/media/rm2360449024/nm1711829

Aro:
Ben Barnes-
http://www.imdb.com/rg/mediaindex/thumbnail/media/rm3209531904/nm1602660

Caius:
Michael C. Hall-
http://www.imdb.com/rg/mediaindex/thumbnail/media/rm1492555008/nm0355910
or
David Wenham
http://www.imdb.com/rg/mediaindex/thumbnail/media/rm3541276672/nm0920992
or
Stephen Dorff
http://www.imdb.com/rg/mediaindex/thumbnail/media/rm1476564992/ch0003483

I think Marcus needs someone charismatic to play him since he's never talking and generally just a peripheral character. If you ever watched "The Covenant" you'll know what I mean when I suggest that Steven Strait is a good idea as Marcus... htere are almost no scenes where you don't find yourself looking at him.

Aro is a questionable character... think you need someoen who is capable of sounding gentle yet patronizing. I like Ben Barnes a lot and I think that he could do quite well. There are a few things I have questions about but overall? I think he'll be great.

Caius is a different animal all together. I find him negative and possessing a slightly veiled contempt for people. He's sadistic and related heavily to Jane and Alec and appreciates their malicious natures. Michael C Hall plays a psycho on TV but i'm unsure if he has the chilling exactness to play Caius. David Wenham is someone who, to date, has really only had affable characters to play. That being said I think he potentially could be great as Caius. He's got depth to his face and if you need proof just watch "300" Plus he's not widely known. On a slightly more famous note, Stephen Dorff would be fantastic! Two words: Deacon Frost. Psychotic, sadistic, mocking.. sound like anyone we know of?

Online at http://www.filmgecko.com/chris-weitz-new-moon-to-begin-shooting-in-march-2009/ it says theyre looking for italain vampires, which i think is the best idea instead of paying for well known actors.

Totally agree, i just don't understand why they would want her anyway? Yes she is a good actress, and i respect that, but she doesn't fit the character at all, well in my point of view she doesn't.
Im gonna loose all faith in the movie and in Chris, (I'll hate him for a long time) when Dakota signs.


Mhm. Maybe they should really rethink their choices. I get so mad when I find out that the cast wants her there. At least one of them don't like her! I mean GOODNESS!!! I don't think she is anywhere close to Jane and she'll completely ruin the movie. I must say that Summit is really screwing themselves if they cast Dakota. They won't lose much business because it is still New Moon and Eclipse so, the fans want to watch the movie. I'm just afraid that Dakota will make everyone mad. Hopefully, if she does get the part, she will get lots of bad reviews :twisted: :lol:



Same, when i heard that some of the cast didn't mind her i was like "no, no!"
Which one of the cast don't like her??
Me and my friends have a plan, when she comes on screen (in the movies), were gonna boo her :P
But hopefully she'll do a good job. but i really don't want her to be jane, like really don't want her, and i think alot of people are sick of her, because there is always news about her being jane, and its the same thing over again, people are getting annoyed!

Yes, unknowns would be cheaper but they aren't going to leave characters like Aro and Caius to chance and get hacks.. not all Italians are great actors. I also do not believe that they need be Italian. Isn't it stated in the books that Marcus CAME to Volterra... who says he didn't come from somewhere else, germany, britain, france, spain... And Caius does not sound Italian to me... Just saying. Demetri could be russian or greek, Felix could be a studly beefcake from Southy, Aro could be a cutlured scholar from Ireland... I mean, who says they have to be Italian.... I've been to Italy, and if I could live anywhere in the world, Italy would be in my top 2 places....

No, you TOTALLY make sense and I know exactly what you mean. There are numerous so called "great" actors out there who I don't see their characters and all I see is them TRYING to play a certain character..Whereas the really good actors, I see them as their characters when I am watching the movie..Because its like this, if you cannot distinguish yourself as a person from your character, then you are not a very good actor..

OKay I am done with my ranting..

Please tell me which theatre you go to because I don't want to be there when you do that... Sorry DB I think that's lame. I mean, the people making the film are smart. They know what they are doing. Which is why they do what they do and we do what we do. If they think Dakota or Jodelle or Anna Sopia or anyone else is right for the part there has to be a reason. Booing her when she just somes on screen seems over the top. I mean, you've already made up your mind that she's going to suck therefore I can not believe that any review you do of her performance will be fair. I hope Dakota rocks it and I hope you eventually have to acknowledge that she was awesome.

Oh! Brilliant plan haaha. No, I meant that there has to be at least one person that's sick of her, I don't know of there is though. Yeah, I read that Peter Facinelli liked her and my friend and I are like, "WTF!? NO!!! NO!! YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE SMART! DANG IT CARLISLE WOULDN'Y LIKE HER!! GOSH!" haha. We literally went on as many Twilight websites and booed Dakota. We got people mad at us XD. Dude, I will throw popcorn at the screen and my icee at the person who's happy about her being in the movie >:D. Brilliant plan lol. Maybe she should just drop it...that's a wonderful idea
